I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. .
Open Circle is an adult daycare center where Minnie Carlson works, and she is tasked with the job of revitalizing it or it will shut down. Jackson Young is a famous photographer who has just learned his Granda Em, who he thought was dead, is alive. He has fond memories of his Grandma Em, but he hasn’t seen since her since was child. Now she is ill, and he drops everything to comes to town. Minnie, not only the director of Open Circle, is an adopted granddaughter of sorts to Em and ha been so for the last twenty years. She is suspicious of Jackson’s sudden appearance into Em’s life.
This book came at the perfect time. I needed to take a break and this inspirational contemporary was just the thing. I liked it well enough to ask Stacy Monson for an interview! You can read about it on my blog.
It took me until chapter three to really get into the book, but once I got that far I became involved with the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions and the interplay between the different characters in the novel. I was intrigued by the setting.
If you enjoy Contemporary Christian Romance, you will probably like this book. It is exactly what you would expect for inspirational Christian fiction, hitting all the right notes with no surprises. .
I am glad this novel found its way to me. A good weekend read.

☕ Book Break ☕ | The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner

~ The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner~

Warm, witty, and utterly charming, The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck, tells the story of Sarah’s conversion and subsequent falling for the pastor, Ben. And he reciprocates. A bunch. Problem: Sarah writes ultra steamy romance. Ultra. Steamy. Her new found faith is at direct odds with her former lifestyle and persona. Did I mention she has made a ton of money and is famous for those steamy romances?

I laughed out loud more than once. I love Bethany Turner’s writing style. I loved the characters. I love the story idea and the portrayal that, yes, christians do deal with sexual attraction. It’s refreshing to see a novel addressing that reality.

It is a bit heavy on the sexual attraction angle and does not explore the other aspects of Ben and Sarah’s relationship in the way I expected, but I enjoyed the read and will look for more by Bethany Turner. Cute read. Love the cover.

☕ Book Break ☕ | The Feathered Bone by Julie Cantrell

~The Feathered Bone by Julie Cantrell~⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I finally got around to reading The Feathered Bone. I love the descriptions of New Orleans and its unique culture. Once I started, I didn’t take long to read this book. It was an emotional read. A few twists in the story surprised me and kept me reading. I will definitely be reading more books by Julie Cantrell. If you like Christian fiction or fiction with a strong theme of redemption this might be a book for you.
