My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

Great book for the devotionals in the New Year…. I read couple passages, and they do have a valid point and inspiration for the daily living. I would recommend for women to use as a daily reading… Topics like new plans, goals, life, worth and being closer to God in every moment. 

Want to grow spiritually and deepen the relationship with God and people around you, this book will be a great addition for that purpose.

Love it. The light turquoise and golden border looks pretty too.

Out of the Ordinary {Apart From the Crowd} by Jen Turano

Little description:Miss Gertrude Cadwalader hoped her position as the paid companion to Mrs. Davenport would be easy. But as she becomes acquainted with her employer, she realizes the wealthy Mrs. Davenport has a strange tendency to be a bit light-fingered with other people’s trinkets. Gertrude is relieved when Mrs. Davenport decides to have a quiet summer away from the social scene–until the woman changes her mind in order to help a young socialite launch into society. 

When Gertrude is caught in the act of trying to return one of the trinkets by Mrs. Sinclair, the mother of shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair, the woman jumps to an unfortunate conclusion. Harrison is determined to mend fences with Miss Cadwalader, but he’s unprepared for the escapades a friendship with her will entail.

Genre:  Religious/ Historical Fiction/ Romance

My thoughts: 4 stars out of 5

Funny Gertrude always manages to find herself in very peculiar situations and unordinary positions. She is a very unusual young lady, being very foreword and quiet frank.

I just laughed myself off. The characters are funny and well-developed. But there is one little spot that made me cringed a little is many very descriptive passages with slow scenes.

I have enjoyed it.

Imperfect Justice (Hidden Justice Series Book 2) by Cara Putman

Little description: THE POLICE SAY THE WOMAN WAS A MURDERER. EMILIE WESLEY KNOWS THEY CAN’T BE TALKING ABOUT HER CLIENT . . . CAN THEY?

To the world it seems obvious: Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story: Kaylene would never hurt anyone and was looking for a way out of a controlling, abusive relationship. Her death shakes Emilie’s belief that she can make a difference for women in violent marriages. Self-doubt plagues her as she struggles to continue her work in the wake of the tragedy.

Reid Billings thought he knew his sister—right up until he learned how she died. He discovers a letter from Kaylene begging him to fight for custody of her daughters if anything should happen to her. No attorney in her right mind would support an uncle instead of the father in a custody case, but Kaylene’s letter claims Emilie Wesley will help him.

Thrown together in a race to save Kaylene’s surviving daughter, Emily and Reid pursue the constantly evasive truth. If they can hang on to hope together, can they save a young girl—and find a future for themselves in the process?

Genre: Christian Fiction/ Romance/ Mystery & Suspense

Find the book on Amazon here.

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

The description of the book says it all… I just loved the book. Some tense moments, some mysteries and plots… Great read for those who like the strong and full of justice women in the advocate, lawyer office.

I just like Emilie Wesley, the way she hold herself and every case she ever handled… But the last case came to dead end with some lives lost to shootings. She needs to proove that her client is not a murderer, and there are more dangerous subject lurking around the corner in the shadows.
