"Dangerous Bonds" by Shani Greene-Dowdell


My Thoughts.....


This was quite a interesting read that this author presents as we are presented with Channing and Kemara that dealt with 'race and love.' Being presented with racism and the way it was showed in this read was really something as we see how these two will work it all out.  How will Kemara be able to take this all in after she finds out about Channing's background?  I liked would this character was able to know just what was right and wrong.  This story really shows that even though one may be born to a racist family there can be a change if it is desired.  Will these two be able to 'look deep within themselves and find love?'  This story really shows that even in our world today 'hate and bigotry' still can be found.  In the end will love trump hate?  Well, to find out about this story you will have to pick up this very good read of  'Dangerous Bonds' to see how well this author gives the reader a very well written story of just what happened in such a situation as it was was Channing and Kemara.

A Rebel Spy - Anne Greene

A rebel spy by Anne Greene
Was glad I won a copy of this because I like the way the author writes. I don't even know what the book is about and know it will be a good read.
Starts out with Sophia and she's been detained and she's now in front of the general and he's agreed to send her home but next time she's caught she will be hung.
He thinks she's a spy so she'll have to be more careful with all the military in town.
Major Brent escorts her home to her family house. He is so taken with her dimples as she smiles, holding her arm in his.
She is able to hide her gun in her crocheted purse and the maid keeps it hidden out of sight.
Love that this 1860 story is focused around the Shenandoah Valley, which we have visited.
Story also follows the major and how he survives the war and living in town, laundering and eating. She is helping at the hotel, serving meals to the troops.
On her travels you are also learning not only of the locations but the history of the events during the war.
Women were strong as they were the ones doing the house/farm chores as the men were fighting.
She is not sure who helped save her as they were cloaked in black-her angel but she doesn't know who it was.
So scared for her but she is so strong. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.

A Christmas Belle (Christmas Mail Order Angels) (Volume 4) - Anne Greene

A Christmas Belle by Anne Greene
Have read other works by the author and have enjoyed the reads. This one is also another enjoyable one.
Love cover with snow covered pinecones. Book starts out with Amanda and she's answered an ad to travel west and marry a man there.
Angel Vale is looking for many women to come and marry the men available there. There are some stipulations and some require you be Christian.
As the story goes along it follows Amanda and we learn how it came to be that she's decided to go there.
Story also follows Frank and he's a sheriff, building his own house and he has staked a gold claim. His circumstances change a bit as a baby is left at his steps claiming the male child is his.
He pays a Chinese laundry man to tend to the child so he can work with the many jobs he has. He hopes the women he has sent for will agree to marry him and tend to the baby.
Like learning of the way others live in the west and how much a part religion has. Can't believe the outcome of this book because there was problems with Amanda's first betrothed and she keeps comparing Frank and his origins.
Received this review copy from the author via Bookfun.org and this is my honest review. Love holiday reads.

The Memory of Butterflies: A Novel - Grace Greene

I absolutely enjoyed reading this story of Hannah, the mother, and her daughter, Ellen. A poignant story that had me mesmerized. 

Hannah is hiding a secret, and it's a big one, from her daughter. Actually, she's hiding it from the whole town. The only ones who know the truth are herself, her grandmother and a neighbor. The secret is going to tear her and her daughter apart, but it's one that she's going to have to tell.

A wonderful, moving story that I would definitely recommend!

Thanks to Lake Union Publishing and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

My Thoughts...


What a beautiful love story that dealt with Vicki Jae Rutherford and Mayor Garrett. Who would have thought these two would every catch each others attention with them being so very opposite of each other.  I enjoyed how this author was able to  give us a relationship that from one helping  the other changes started and it was all for the better especially for one of the characters who had been a spoiled rich guy who had no respect for women.  It all starts where one will ask for help and my goodness could he be tamed from that 'bad boy image? I loved how Mayor had to work to earn the love and respect from that special person that had seem to have always had his attention.   From all of this we get a sweet love story that Vicki Jae never thought she would get especially after the way that 'Timothy Beck' had treated her earlier. Will things come together and we get a  HEA?  Well, to see how this will all come out you will have to pick up this good read to see if Vicki Jae will be able to tame Major Garrett.  In the end will Major capture Vicki Jae's  heart?
