I Like Storms by Angela Holland

I Like Storms was birthed during one of the most unyielding seasons of storms in my life, storms that left me numb and in shock. In just 8 months, I’d lost several close family members and then my two year old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I’d faced trials in the past, of course, but good health was always something my family had an upper hand on. We had no history of chronic illness, so I couldn’t even comprehend the idea of managing life with Type 1, on top of my grief.Continue Reading

The Love Inspired Romance product line is a series of 6 books that are released every month. I have been reading these books since I was a teen and didn’t want to read the racy romance counterparts. Love Inspired books are not mommy porn books at all! Love Inspired romance books are light reading. It usually only takes me a day or so to get through one book. I was so excited when I found out I was getting sent six of their books.  The titles I am previewing are on sale on the Harlequin website April 21st to May 28th and would make a wonderful Mother’s Day Gift.23bec8996621d2fba4cc477f1cf9b304

 

 Love Inspired Romance

 A Firefighter’s Promise- Though I think most romance stories are a little predictable this story had a really good second storyline.  A Firefighter’s Promise also deals with how adults and kids deal with grief. I really liked how they showed God’s love and forgiveness in the story. This story also touched my heart because my husband, though not a firefighter, is a first responder as a paramedic. I give this book 4/5 stars.

Winning the Teacher’s Heart- I didn’t get a chance to read this book yetI am really intrigued by the story though. It deals with a high school crush returning and defending her home against his plans to build a motocross school on the land near her home. Continue Reading
