[Review] - Counterfeit Love by Crystal Caudill

About the Book 

Can this undercover agent save the woman he loves—or is her heart as counterfeit as the money he’s been sent to track down? 

After all that Grandfather has sacrificed to raise her, Theresa Plane owes it to him to save the family name--and that means clearing their debt with creditors before she marries Edward Greystone. But when one of the creditors’ threats leads her to stumble across a midnight meeting, she discovers that the money he owes isn’t all Grandfather was hiding. And the secrets he kept have now trapped Theresa in a life-threatening fight for her home--and the truth.

[Review] - Far Side of the Sea by Kate Breslin

It's another day, and here's another book from my TBR stack that's been collecting dust on my desk. The title is Far Side of the Sea, written by Kate Breslin and published by Bethany House in 2019. It's set in my least favorite historical setting - World War I. Typically, I don't care to read about the era. I prefer my historical romances set in the 19th century. Nevertheless, like any reading champ, I turned to Chapter One on page 9 and gave the novel everything I have, which means it received my full attention in between rounds of coffee.

[Review] - Dusk's Darkest Shores by Carolyn Miller

Available on Paperback & Kindle.

About The Book

How can a meek wallflower help a returning war hero whose dreams are plunged into darkness? 


Mary Bloomfield has no illusions. Her chances for matrimony have long since passed her by. Still, her circumstances are pleasant enough, especially now that she has found purpose in assisting her father with his medical practice in England's beautiful Lake District. Even without love, it's a peaceful life. 


That is until Adam Edgerton returns to the sleepy district. This decorated war hero did not arrive home to acclaim and rest, but to a new battle against the repercussions of an insidious disease. Mary's caring nature cannot stand to see someone suffer--but how can she help this man see any brightness in his future when he's plunged into melancholic darkness, his dreams laid waste by his condition?

“The Boy Who Changed the World” chronicles the lives of four boys. The first is Norman Borlang. While playing with his sisters in the cornfield, Norman comes up with the idea to feed the world.

The second is Henry Wallace. As a kid, he learned to respect nature. When he grew up, he became the U.S. secretary of agriculture.

The third boy was George Washington. His parents died when he was young and a nice family adopted him. He grew up to be a teacher and inventor.

The last boy was Moses Carver. When he grew up, he married a woman named Susan. They later adopted a boy named George Washington.

What do all these boys have in common? Well, you have to read the book yourself to find out.

This is a cute picture book with wonderful illustrations. There is a wonderful message in the book about hope and determination that both kids and adults will enjoy reading.
