- The Blue-Sprigged Dimity Dress
on Oct. 16, 2011
This is a cute coming of age story set in america in the late 1800's. Often funny and at times serious you can get lost in a girl on the cusp of becoming a woman's story. I think if you have a half-hour or so to kill and want a feel good quick read then this is the story for you. Not to spoil anything but the ending will make you want to stand and offer this young lady your seat in church. Oh and you might chuckle the whole time your doing so.

Charlie’s Angel (Street Justice book one)
This book is about a small town girl named Charlie who ends up homeless in one of Chicago’s rougher boroughs. A good Christian girl Charlie finds herself having to question everything she ever believed about people. She has to take charity from a prostitute and finds herself through a set of unusual circumstances working as an escort for the local pimp. Charlie doesn’t understand how God could have let her fall into these circumstances. She wonders if she could have done things differently when God shows her how he uses all things for good. Soon she has a job that is the career she always wanted helping a reformed criminal and new Christian start growing in faith and helping other young ladies out of lives of addiction and prostitution. Along the way, she falls in love with the worst kind of man. Angel is the local crime bosses personal bodyguard. Or is he? He has no time for a woman in his life especially a woman like Charlie. Yet the two are attracted to each other. In spite of their personal resolve to not act on that attraction they seem to be unable to resist the attraction. Will they find a way past their many differences in a real relationship; or will the circumstances that once thrust them together now work to keep them apart?
This book was a fun read and grabbed my attention from word one when we are introduced to a blood covered pistol holding Charlie. Ms. Fury has crafted a story of seeing God work in mysterious ways. Both Charlie and Angel are very well defined characters. As are all the supporting cast. From the start you are rooting for Charlie to not only survive but to win through all her problems to a victory. You also can’t help but find yourself cheering for true love to win the day in Charlie and Angel’s lives. This book had as much action and adventure as it did romance which is a plus for a guy like me who doesn’t like to admit he reads romance. Samantha Fury is as good if not a better writer of Christian Fiction as Terri Blackstoke or Dee Henderson. Charlie’s Angel is a definite five star novel and a great beginning to the Street Justice series. I will definitely be reading more of Ms. Fury’s novels.

I received this book for free in return for my honest review.
Watch is book two of the Big Springs Novels by Kathryn Lang. If you haven’t read the first novel Run you may want to. However, Watch works well as a stand alone Novel. In Watch we are returned to the town of Big Springs, Alabama. It’s your typical small southern town. It’s biggest claim to fame is its lake and the tourist and fishing industry that brings. This tale follow Karen, the investigative reporter for the local newspaper.
We arrive in Big Springs on the night of the latest Mayoral Election. Like everyone else in town Karen is waiting the results. The whole town is shocked when the results are announce for the incumbent mayor retained his seat by one single vote. That’s were our tale starts but it soon evolves into a murder investigation, couple with a corrupt election investigation. All the while some very peculiar strangers seem to have to much of an interest in the case. Before long we realize that while Karen is watching the town and trying to investigate her friend and mentors death those strangers are watching her. Well she solve the mystery or will her investigating end in her and John’s untimely death?
Mrs. Lang has once again crafted a tale fraught with danger and a good investigation. All of the old gang from run make appearances in watch but the story is centered around Karen and her police friend John. As Karen tries to peal back the layers of the mystery surrounding her friends death she turns to John for help. John at the advice of some of his informants returns to the town of Big Springs this time not to catch a killer but to protect the woman he loves, Karen.
There’s plenty of stuff in this book for everyone love, danger, murder, political intrigue, and even spelunking. Take all that and wrap it around a tale filled with faith being lived out in a real life way and you have the perfect Christian novel. Kathryn once again rises to the occasion and has craft a tale you can’t put down. Like the first I read Watch in all one setting. Unlike Run I wasn’t sure who the principal bad guys were until Mrs. Lang revealed them. Because of that lack of surprise in Run I gave it four stars. With Watch Mrs. Lang has redeemed herself and proven that the longer an author works at their craft the better they become. Watch earns five stars only because that’s all I can give her. If you only read one Novel in 2013 you could do worse than choose Watch.
- The Difference Between Night and Day
on Feb. 12, 2013
Nathaniel Taylor was a Christian who thought believers were exempted from "dark times." That was until he entered his own long time in the dark. When he meets Lilly, a young woman in danger, it sends him on a journey to discover the difference between night and day and that during dark times, the Light is hidden, not gone.
Ms. Lee has crafted what I would have to call the Christian version of Twilight. A Christian Vampire who thinks he has been cursed and forgotten by God. Meet’s a young lady who can smell a persons soul those with a relationship with God smell clean and sweet those without smell rotten. She keeps telling Nathaniel that he smells sweet and clean. He can’t understand how a God forsaken monster such as he could smell anything but rotten. When another of his kind shows up in town and at Lilly’s house Nathaniel becomes her protector as they run for her life. Can he resist the love he feels for Lilly or will her inner light draw him out of the darkness? How can he a rage filled monster be in love with this innocent believer? Is their love doomed to the dark just like Nathaniel is or can their love be the answer to stepping back into the light for Nathaniel?
I loved this tale. It was full of action and enough paranormal activity to make the most die hard supernatural fan applaud. Yet it was completely Christ centered. A Christ centered Vampire book. Who would have thought it was possible? Apparently Melissa Turner Lee did. This book shows that Christians go through rough and dark times too. It makes you rethink what you know to be evil and is very centered on the Choice that all people make daily to walk with God in the Light of Salvation or slink in the dark of sin and dispare. Lilly is a joy to read about so innocent and sweet and Nathaniel is the monster you want to see redeemed. Because even though he has fangs and can’t walk in the sunlight you find yourself cheering for him and praying for redemption for this monster with a righteous soul. The Difference Between Night and Day is a romance not only of girl and monster but of God and lost. A great valentines day read and perfect for those girls (or guys) who are suffering from twilight withdraw. Sorry though this vampire doesn’t “sparkle”
