"Irish Meadows" by Susan Anne Mason is about two sisters who are meant to marry well and how their choices in life and men will change them forever. I just could not get into this book it was like pulling teeth for me to want to read it every time I would pick it up. I was hoping that the romance potion was only a small portion of a good story but not so with this one the characters love life was the main portion of the story. Also I did not like any of the characters in this book which I have felt that way in books before but I still wanted to read more about them. Not this book I just wanted to put it down and never pick it up again. This book was just not a good book and personally I did not think it was very well written, so I do not recommend it.
I was given this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.

"The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom is a true story of not just Corrie but of her sister and father and how they hid Jews from the Nazi's in Holland. I have read this book before but this one is geared more towards children so I wanted to check it out. I really enjoyed this one for kids not only is it wrote for them in a easy flowing way, it had some very nice drawings done of things that happened to Corrie and her family. It does not gloss over what happened to Corrie when her family got caught hiding Jews. Corrie is not perfect she admits that but will point you to Christ not herself. She really points to the fact that Christ is the reason for her strength not herself. I really enjoyed this book and plan on giving it to my youngest to read.

"Gone Without A Trace" by Patricia Bradley is the 3rd in the Logan Point mysteries. The Logan Point mysteries can be read out of order. It involves private investigator named Alex Jennings trying to help find a senator's missing granddaughter and Livy Reynolds a police officer who thinks her cousins disappearance is connected. If you have read any of my reviews previous to this one then you know I read the 2nd book in this series and did not like it. But this one in the series I really enjoyed a lot! At first I thought the book was heading in the typical Christian Mystery Romance style but then about a 1/4 way into it changed into a story I really go into. I can't say what the change was as that would give away a good portion of the story but I could not put it down after the change. I really like how the characters developed and even though I am not a fan of characters changing in mid chapter this one did it very well. It was an overall great book. Even though I have not read the first book in this series I highly recommend you start with this book as it was the best in the portion of the series I have read.
