The Sea of Dreams spat me out with no memories, no idea of who I was or what my purpose might be. When Captain Bo, dream killer extraordinaire, arrived, I took a chance to explore. On the road of discovery, I tripped upon dreamplanes floating dead in a graveyard, scared children attempting to survive their dreams turned nightmare, strange guardians, rogue Dreamlanders, and ships with hearts of silver. I learned more about Dreamland than I ever thought possible. But people are dying. They're disappearing. Dreamland is twisting, shifting, ripping. I don't know how best to help, how to save those I've met, who have wormed their way into my heart. If only I knew who I was, what I'd been born to do. Then I found out. I know who I am. I wish I didn't. Dream Killers is geared for fans of Once Upon a Time. The first season (Spring 2014) consists of 3 novellas called episodes. It follows River as he discovers who he is and his role in Dreamland. Dream Killers is to Dreamland Stories what Agents of Shield is to the Marvel movies. Dreamland is an intense, rich, fascinating world with lots going on. If you like fairy tales, are looking for something new,try this one.

Book Review: What if it's Love?

Posted by Katrina Roets at 8:00 AM

Monday, August 25, 2014

Can a Paris bistro heal a broken heart? Introverted heiress Lena moves to Paris to nurse old wounds reopened by her neglectful boyfriend, and decide what to do with her life. Enter Rob, a charismatic and handsome Frenchman who waits tables at La Bohème - a café on Lena’s street - and has big dreams. He makes her laugh and forget her insecurities. She stirs something infinitely tender in his soul. Before they know it, they’ve fallen for each other, even though both had good reasons to fight the budding love. But their passionate romance is cut short when she discovers his dirty secret. When their lives intersect again three years later, will Lena have enough faith in Rob to give him a second chance? And can Rob be worthy of her trust? Fans of "Amélie" and "Friends" will savor this warm and funny tale of love, betrayal and finding out where you belong.

===========================
Another book that kept me reading far past when I ought to have been asleep. What if it's Love? made me smile, it made me cry and it made me wonder if Paris isn't really the city of love. If I'm lucky, maybe one day I'll be able to find out. I love how this book wasn't "easy". Instead of cutting a clear and easy path for Lena and Rob to be together. There were bumps, there were bruises, marriages, babies and so much more. If you want a great romance where you're never quite sure, up until the end, if they're going to live happily ever after, then this is going to be one you want to pick up.

Book Review: Abiding Flame

Posted by Katrina Roets at 8:00 AM

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Darkness can be overcome…

Terminally ill Lynette Lamb is forced to reunite her wayward son and grandson. Her options are as limited as her strength and mobility. Through a fateful series of events, the rejoined pair will leave Earth to become part of a colony orbiting a new planet. Sam Austin and his wife mourn the loss of their only child and decide to make a fresh start at the space station. The same ship holds the one who will fulfill the dark planet’s prophecy, but a demonic force boards to stop the vessel. The demon’s obedient but unwilling servant is sent on a suicide mission to keep the ship from reaching its destination.



============================
I have mixed feelings about this book. I was loving it, couldn't stop turning pages and then it changed for me. I think my troubles come in that I wasn't expecting this book to take a Christian turn. It threw me off and while the book was still really good, I just wasn't as into it. That being said, I suspect that it's one that I'm going to return to and now knowing that element is involved, I'm going to be far more into it than I was on my first go round. All in all, another recommended book that I certainly wouldn't stop you from getting a copy of.

Book Review: A Bouquet of Love

Posted by Katrina Roets at 8:00 AM

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Cassia Pappas has found herself in a nearly impossible situation. She wants to spend her time immersed in her new job at a Galveston Island floral shop, arranging blooms and brightening occasions with her lovely creations. But her huge Greek family--especially her father--has other ideas. They've all relocated to Galveston to open up a new family restaurant location on the Strand--directly across the street from the Rossi's popular pizza place--and they want Cassia's full participation.

To make matters worse, as Cassia is trying to develop a strong professional relationship with Galveston's premier wedding coordinator, Bella Neeley, her own father is intent on stealing all of the Rossi family's faithful customers. Not exactly the best way to get into Bella's good graces!

Still, at least Alex, that hot delivery guy from the nursery, is always hanging around the flower shop . . .

Fan favorite Janice Thompson gives readers one more romp with Bella, Galveston, and the bustling wedding biz in the final installment of her popular series. Anyone who loves quirky families, loads of laughter, and tender romance will find themselves hooked.

===========================
Hooked sums it up nicely. I was hooked on the other books in this series and this one wasn't any different. Poor Cassia! She really found herself in quite a pickle more than once. This is one of those great books where you'll laugh, you'll groan and you'll be thrilled to catch up with some of the characters that you met in other books. Every time Cassia's father came up with a new idea, I chuckled and wondered how I'd do in a family like theirs. It was full of love, but also had a uniqueness that no other family could compete with. If Janice Thompson ever wants to go back to Galveston, I'll be along for the ride.

BIO

Bella Ross wrote her first book (a novel) at eighteen a la Jackie Collins. But back then, unbeknownst to her, life was about to take her on a detour. As she set off on her new course, her dream of writing took a backseat. But after many years of worldly pursuits, the urge to write returned. With her love of travel, it is no surprise that her ‘Wanderlust Series’ & ‘Club Pluto Series’ take place in glamorous capitals or exotic locales around the world. Its the perfect backdrop/setting for her characters to explore and indulge their lusts and passions, loves and desires. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, or gallivanting all over seeking new inspiration, or people watching while enjoying a latte at Starbucks and jotting down ideas. She loves to hear from readers and looks forward to interacting through her social media channels. So stop by and say hi!

Publishers Weekly gives it an enthusiastic thumbs up: “Sundin excels at well-researched historical detail . . . with such accurate depictions of culture and setting that we are fully immersed in the times as well as in the story. The strength of relationships forged in war and the apprehension of God in times of trouble infuse this well-crafted novel with substance and light.”

Bold, sophisticated, and flirtatious, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.

Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer to where they don't want to go. Can they confront the fears and misunderstandings in their pasts?

Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.

============================

While this is a book in a series, I was thrilled to find out that it stood alone quite well and I wasn't left feeling lost or like I immediately had to go and purchase the other books just to find out what was happening in the ones that I had. Taking place during WWII, the author could have easily found herself bogged down in the tons of details and facts, but she doesn't. She gives the reader just enough detail to understand what is happening and to form a picture in your mind and then she moves on to the plot. When I first started reading, I thought that I knew the characters but before long, I found out just how wrong I was. The characters continue to develop and you see new pieces of them as the book progresses. I won't give anything away, I'll just say if you like historical romance or historical fiction, you're going to enjoy this book.

===================================

Wow! What a serious rollercoaster of emotions wrapped up in one fantastic book! Seriously, don't pick up this book unless you're ready to become heavily invested in the lives of the characters. This book is actually two books in one, but don't let that stop you. The issues faced by these couples are very real issues and the author does a great job of leading the reader through to the other side. I'm going to go looking for the other books in this series because I can only imagine how worth reading they are as well!
