Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW

4 out of 5 STARS

I had a smile on my face from the very beginning of reading Trusting Her Heart by Tara Randel. I liked the main characters as well as the fun side characters. I look forward to reading the books before and after in this Meet Me at the Altar series.

Golden sounds like a beautiful little town where Serena had begun to settle in and which happens to be where Logan grew up. Serena was thoughtful of others and full of kindness. Logan felt the peace of his hometown but also felt like he couldn’t stay for other reasons.

Logan’s Grandma was so fun, and brought a smile and laugh to the story. She was strong and didn’t give up on  what she wanted in life. There were many great side characters. I hope there will be future stories with Serena and Logan’s friends.

If you enjoy Heartwarming Romance with family, friendships, and some good laughs then read this book. Some of life’s trials feel unbreakable. Some hard times have to be pushed through. Trusting Her Heart by Tara Randel is a wonderful read full of the ups and downs of life.

Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW

4 out of 5 STARS

Single Dad to the Rescue is a sweet clean romance read! It’s the 4th in a series, but you don’t have to read the first 3 books. Those book characters do enter this story which makes me want to go back and read their sweet romance.

A wildfire makes Brooke and her animal family leave their home. With her pets she can’t find a place for shelter. Thankfully she’s blessed to find a kind older man named Rick who brings her to his son Dan’s guesthouse. Throughout the story you get to see Brooke’s way of talking through problems with others. She connects with animals that have been through difficult times because of what she went through when her husband died. Dan is an organized single dad of a child with type 1 diabetes. He went through heartbreak when his wife left him and his son at a young age.

There are a lot of characters in this story! Because I’ve gone through brain cancer I struggle remembering names so I kept a paper and pen nearby. The characters are all great additions to the story. Dan’s dad and son are sweet to everyone. The dogs and cats are cute and loving. Valerie, Dan’s ex-wife, brings frustrations and more. Dan’s little brother Jason is a great addition to the emotions of this story.

Brooke and Dan are both scared to get emotionally connected because of the hard things life has put them through. I felt heartwarming feelings build up throughout this read. Single Dad to the Rescue by Cari Lynn Webb is a romance with life building experiences which we can all relate to in different ways.

Kathryn Cooper Writes’ Review

4 out of 5 STARS

Sweet Home Alaska by Beth Carpenter was a delightful read. Volta and Scott had a romantic past. It had ended because Scott didn’t think he could keep a long term relationship with his job. He planned to be a doctor that traveled around the world.

Volta’s heart had been broken by falling in love with Scott in the past. She tries to keep from falling for Scott again. He doesn’t show up in Alaska on accident though. He wants to talk through with her the bad break up from the past to feel better in the present. Scott and Volta both try and fail to keep their emotions from falling for each other again.

The story takes place in Alaska which is like a different world for me, a Texas girl. I don’t like snow, but reading about the unique beauty of Alaska and the adventures makes me want to travel there.

Volta’s daughter is a sweet addition to the story. I enjoy reading books with growing family love. The story had more slow and unneeded scenes than I prefer, but I still enjoyed the sweet love story.

It’s a clean romance with heart pumping moments. Enjoy reading Sweet Home Alaska.

Adult Fiction

Daughter of Ismael by Diane Stringam Tolle: 4 of 5 STARS ADULT REVIEW

daughter-of-ishmael

Daughter of Ishmael by Diane Stringam Tolle. 2017. Cedar Fort.

Goodreads. Amazon.

32560833

Growing up around prophets and prophecies, Hannah and her sisters are excited to be betrothed to sons of Lehi and to journey to the promised land. But now with her people dividing, Hannah must choose between her faith and her family. Should she follow Nephi again, or stay with her husband, Lemuel, and her son in sin and misery? This compelling novel tells the familiar scripture story from an illuminating new perspective.

stars4Diane Stringam Tolley is an amazing talented author! Her words are written so beautifully.

The Book of Mormon contains true historic writings from Nephi. This story called Daughter of Ishmael is a fiction novel that gives ideas of how life might have been for a woman named Hannah that played a daughter of Ishmael and Nephi’s sister-in-law. I read Daughter of Ishmael as a story, not scripture, and found it intriguing. The novel goes from Hannah being very young to much older. She goes through many difficulties that are heart breaking. She also finds peace and joy through following the prophet.

I’ve never read a scripture historical fiction. It’s not my style, but it was made well. If you love adult scripture historical fiction then you’ll love this beautifully written novel with love, faith, and sadness.
