The Christmas Joy Ride follows the characters of Joy, an 85 year old woman, and her neighbor, Miranda. They set out in a motor home to spread Christmas joy around the country. This is a quick, inspirational read that will get you in the Christmas mood. It’s a very interesting story but since it is so short some things do feel rushed. I am a huge fan of Melody Carlson’s and love her style of writing and this novella doesn’t disappoint. I would recommend this book if you need something short and uplifting to read.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

A Reason to Stay is part of the Texas Gold series but can be read as a stand alone book. The main character Faith, is a news anchor who is trying to juggle her career and her crumbling marriage. The pain that Faith is going through with her marriage is very real and will tug on your emotions. The characters are likable and you will want to continue reading to find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend this book!

The Imposter is an Amish fiction novel set in the fictional town of Stoney Ridge. It follows the character of Katrina Stoltzfus, a girl who has just moved to the area. She believed she had her life planned out and would live happily with John. However, shortly before moving to Stony Ridge John breaks her heart and ask another woman to marry him. After her move Katrina begins helping a widow with her business and meets Andy, a farmhand. He is interested in her but since she is mending a broken heart Katrina brushes him off.

I was very excited to receive this book since I’ve read so many of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s novels and have loved them all. It was very nice to go back and visit the town of Stoney Ridge thru the eyes of these new characters. It definitely didn’t disappoint and I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel to be published!

The Photograph is about about Eva Esch, and Amish girl who lives with her brother and two sisters after her parents both die. Since her brother, Menno, is now head of the household he says that his three unmarried sisters must leave the house. Eva, however, doesn’t have any real prospects for marriage. After her youngest sister leaves town to join the outside world a young buggy maker shows up in town with a photograph of a woman that he is looking for and romance begins.

This was a quick read that was very entertaining, as all of Lewis’ novels are.  I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Amish or Christian fiction.
