Book Review-The Lady of Galway

30 Jan

The Lady of Galway Manor is a historical fiction novel written by Jennifer Deibel.

Summary: English Annabeth De Lacy has been brought up to believe that all Irish are uncultured, uneducated, and in need of saving by the British.

But now that her father is tasked with running Galway Parish in Ireland, she starts to see that maybe things aren’t as she imagined them to be.

As she gets to know the Irish citizens, she finds a warm and friendly people who have been oppressed for far too long.

Can she make a difference and help those who need her when they are wary of British interference? Or will an Irish rebellion threaten all she knows and loves?

My Thoughts: I really liked this book. It covers a fascinating time in history that I enjoyed exploring. The characters are fun and interesting, and there is a unique plot too.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a historical novel with a little romance.

I would like to thank Revell for providing me a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!

*Please note: This book will be released on February 1, 2022.

Book Review-Deadly Target

22 Jan

Deadly Target was written by Elizabeth Goddard and is book two in the Rocky Mountain Courage series. It is not necessary to have read book one in order to read this one.

Summary: Erin Larson just wants to live her life in the present, and shut out the past. She is working towards the job she’s always wanted, and has a fledgling podcast she’s determined to get off the ground.

But strange and dangerous things are happening in her life. She and a friend are almost killed in a boating accident, and then she discovers her mother has just tried to commit suicide. Erin rushes home to take care of her mother, and finds herself colliding with the man she’s tried to forget-Nathan.

She’s never gotten over him, but she left because she knows he can never find out her deadly secret. A secret that would change everything.

When Nathan’s father is shot, Erin and Nathan begin to suspect that each tragedy might be related to each other.

A desperate search for answers takes them on a dangerous quest-one not everyone will survive.

Can they find out the truth before more people are hurt? And does all of this somehow have something to do with the secret Erin has been hiding?

My Thoughts: I do not think this book could have contained more action. There was something happening constantly. I enjoyed it, to be sure, but I will say it was so much that it was like HOW can they possibly still be alive??? It was a lot.

But, it was exciting.

There was plenty of mystery, intrigue, and some romance in this one.

I enjoyed it, and if you like action-packed mysteries, this one will probably be up your alley as well.

I would like to thank Revell for providing me with a digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!
