Smashwords book reviews by Sarahplatt807

  • The Thorn Bearer on Aug. 14, 2017

  • To Find a Duchess on Aug. 19, 2017

    Wonderfully sweet!
  • Ride With Me (A Quaking Heart Novel - Book One) on Aug. 19, 2017

    Beautifully written love story with many twists and turns!
  • A Bridge Unbroken on Sep. 01, 2017

    I prayed a while back for God to show me what forgiveness really is. I believe this book was my answer. I've read it through a few times and even took notes on the sunday school lesson for future reference. It is a tough thing, but once you are able to forgive something truly hard it is life changing. Amazing work, and thank God for Cathy Bryant! I only wish I could give more than five stars.
  • The Thorn Keeper on Sep. 01, 2017

    Can't say enough to do this book (and the whole "Penned in Time" series) justice. This story is the second book of the trilogy and shows the life-changing power and perseverence of God's love and forgiveness in a person's life. The book can be read independent of the other books but don't short-change yourself and read only one. The books in this series are among the best I've ever read!
  • The Thorn Healer on Sep. 01, 2017

    This book changed my life. Although I've read it more than once, it has brought me to tears each time. That may sound silly because I already know the plot after the first reading, but what gets me every single time is the way the main character learns the all-encompassing love of God. I would recommend this novel to any and everyone (Have a friend reading the trilogy now), but for those who really struggle with God's love, this book is a lifeline. Thank God for Pepper Basham!
  • Answering Sarah on Sep. 12, 2017

    Wonderful love story. How can a sensitive soul live for Christ? The heroine of this novel experiences life on a deep level, making it hard to keep her eyes on God rather than her worries. There is so much practical wisdom in this book. I learned so much!
  • Spring Thaw on Sep. 13, 2017

    I loved this story! It's not the average mail order bride story. It's much deeper than that. Great writing.
  • No Turning Back on Oct. 07, 2017

    This might be one of the best suspense novels of the Christian genre. I was amazed at the attention to detail, among many other things. The characters were real, well-rounded with strengths and weaknesses. An overall great read. I highly recommend this book.
  • A Heart that Needs Him More on Oct. 11, 2017

    Can't figure out why such a fantastic book as this would be free! I have now read this novel 3 times. I only do that with great stories that carry terrific spiritual impact and romance. Thank you, Kay Edwards. Keep them coming!
  • The Bargain on Oct. 28, 2017

    Great story. Would give this a five, but the grammar was incredibly poor. Spell-check can only do so much!
  • When He Wakes on Nov. 16, 2017

    I have to admit, I thought by the description that I wouldn't get past the sample section. It was one of those where I thought, "I'll just start it and if I don't like it, I won't pay for it. The description makes it sound goofy. This novel was anything but. It had an intricately woven, very thrilling plot. Give this novel a chance. You'll be glad you did!
  • Her Minnesota Man (A Christian Romance Novel) on Nov. 19, 2017

    Real. Heart warming. A precious gem of a story. The characters are well-rounded, and the love story includes the wonderful message of grace.
  • Getting His Attention on Nov. 20, 2017

    This novel had no real plot. Nothing comes between the man and woman. At all. A long read for little emotion.
  • Root Beer & Roadblocks on Dec. 19, 2017

    This novel so deserves 5 stars! I loved every minute of it. The romance and the suspense were terrific. Just can't say enough good about this story. Ms. Baganz's other Orchard Hill books were outstanding as well: Feta and Freeways, Salsa and Speedbumps, and Bratwurst and Bridges.
  • Sadie's Wings on Dec. 28, 2017

    Wonderful romance detailing the challenges of life as a brand new single pastor and the woman of his dreams from the wrong side of the tracks.
  • Remember Yesterday on Feb. 14, 2018

    Why on earth was this free??? What a wonderful story of love and redemption! I passed by this book so many times, I can't even say. Finally I give it a chance and it blows me away. What a beautiful surprise in every way.
  • A Timely Romance on Feb. 17, 2018

    Excellent book! A fantastical romance. Just beautiful!
  • Love Simplified on Feb. 27, 2018

    I usually re-read the same book at least twice. I miss things. I don't know. But this story was so special I can only read it once. It was part comedy, part romance and all sweet!
  • Kicking Eternity on March 16, 2018

    Y'all don't really need another review here, but when I read a terrific novel, I just have to thank the author and encourage others to read it. This is a fantastic story!
  • Hearts of Avon on April 03, 2018

    Is this about a crazed ex or a hurricane? This book is all over the place and as a love story it just gets stopped up. I could have done better things with my time.
  • Many Waters on April 10, 2018

    You know a story is well-written if it can make you cry. This was a fantasy with such great christian, inspiring messages included throughout. I literally want to be a better person after reading this wild, love-filled novel. It speaks to a faith few will ever find.
  • The Bridge on April 13, 2018

    One of the best stories yet. A man finding himself and a beautiful romance. The scenery is wonderfully depicted. I felt like I was there.
  • A Crazy Little Winter Vacay (BWWM Novella) on April 15, 2018

    Wonderful little story. Rena Manse does such a terrific job with interracial romance. I only wish she'd write more! I've read them all!
  • A Brother's Duty on April 18, 2018

    How could such a wonderful book be free?
  • The Vicar's Daughter on April 18, 2018

    Fantastic novel.
  • The Secret Dreams of Sarah-Jane Quinn on April 23, 2018

    One of the most hilarious books I've ever read! Sweet romance of course.
  • Now Is The Start on May 12, 2018

    This story was beautifully written. I loved the heroine's process in decision-making. I loved her desire to make godly choices. The romance was epic, the characters realistic and funny. I spent half the night reading this wonderful book. I can't understand why I'm the first to review it. Seriously, it should have twelve 5-star reviews!
  • What's Left Unsaid on June 25, 2018

    This is a very deep, very moving novel with a powerful ending!
  • Fall From Grace (Mad World Book 1) on July 06, 2018

    Yeah... Total ripoff of an ending! If you're going to leave a story hanging at the end, have the damn sequel written already!
  • Anchor of Hope on July 21, 2018

    Beautiful story. Too good to be free! Looking forward to more Kiah Stephens novels.
  • The Stray on July 28, 2018

    This was a very special romance, not the typical stuff you will often find. An awesome read!
  • Victorian Mist on July 28, 2018

    Beautifully written Christian novel. Really loved the message on abstinence.
  • Crazy Love on Aug. 02, 2018

    Sweet, wholesome romance.
  • The Promise on Aug. 20, 2018

    Can't believe there are no reviews of this incredibly moving, exciting and suspenseful story! I love Kristen Ashley novels, but from the five I have read, this is definitely the best. I've only read it three times! A little hint though: it can be read as a stand alone novel, but the story actually really begins at the end of "At Peace."
  • April's Storm (2nd Chance Series Book 2) on Sep. 17, 2018

    Tender, well-written love story.
  • A Harmony for Steve on Sep. 19, 2018

    Hallee has done it again! Beautiful, tender, yet suspenseful novel. If ever there was a fictional story filled with characters demonstrating God's grace, this is it. Happy reading!
  • Forever After on Sep. 25, 2018

    Last review was so unfair! I suppose that if you stopped reading at page 35 you might miss the fact that she's been in love with him for two years already. Very unfair to review a book you haven't even finished! For my part, I thought it was a sweet romance.
  • Heart of a Family (Book one of the Brides of the West Series) on Sep. 27, 2018

    One of the worst novels I've ever read. Plot was all over the place and it was so boring that I quit reading just 20 pages before the end. Can't believe I let it go that long! Only thing going for it was that it was, in smashword terms, "clean and wholesome." Yuck!
  • Love is...Blind on Oct. 17, 2018

    Hated the ending!
  • Forever in Love on Nov. 18, 2018

    Wonderful romance. Masterfully written and definitely worth the price!
