The Goodbye Bride (A Summer Harbor Novel) by [Hunter, Denise]
Lucy Lovett can’t remember the last seven months of her life. She doesn’t remember leaving her fiancé Zac Callahan weeks before their wedding or moving to Portland, Maine. And she sure doesn’t remember getting engaged to another man. All she remembers is loving Zac more than life itself  .Zac was just beginning to get his life back on track after Lucy left him with no explanation. And now she’s back—vulnerable, homeless, and still in love with him. Has he been given a second chance with the only woman who stirs his passion and haunts his dreams?
Lucy knows she must unlock those missing months and discover why she threw everything away. And Zac knows that if he follows his heart he’ll win back the love of his life—but if Lucy’s memory returns, his would-be bride might say goodbye forever.   AMAZON  3 STARS

This book was  a bit hard for me to rate. Although it was okay, I disliked how it seemed to drag so often.  Maybe it was all the time spent in regrets.  I'm sure some of it was needed to help you feel the depth of it and how lost Lucy was as she was trying to remember.  But for me, it was a touch too much and made it hard for me to finish the book.   Don't get me wrong, I did like both Zac and Lucy, so that wasn't a problem.  I did get caught off balance a time or two when the story flashbacked to remembering some things.  It caused me to have to go back and see where the story was at.  But thankfully that wasn't all that common throughout the story. 
On the up side :
There is something of a surprise the last chapter or two, and it helps Lucy have an "Aha" moment or two.  And the Epilogue has a smiling, welcome surprise to it too!

How 2 Do the Beautiful Shell Stitch (pic)

The shell stitch is a beautiful stitch and useful for making afghans, baby…
Crocheting is a great way to relax in the evening or unwind when overwhelmed with stress. Letting your hands work with the yarn and hook takes on a therapeutic quality. Once you have learned the basics of chaining, single crochets and double crochets, you are ready to spread your wings and try some more elaborate stitches.
Just because a stitch looks elaborate, though, don't shy away from trying to learn it. Most stitches are not as difficult as they may appear. The shell stitch is a beautiful stitch and useful for making afghans, baby blankets, shawls, scarves, hats, purses and edgings for other works; and the best part about this stitch is that it is super simple.
The only stitches you need to know to do the shell stitch are the chain stitch, the single crochet and the double crochet. As with almost everything crocheted, All Free Crochet states that you begin the shell stitch by making a chain. Once you hit the desired length of the chain, place five double crochets in the third stitch from the end.
Craftsy then states that you skip two chains and place a single crochet. Skip two more chains and place five double crochets in the next chain. Skip two more chain and place a single crochet. Keep repeating the process until you complete the length of the chain.
Craftsy also points out that the shell stitch is a great stitch for changing colors while crocheting. Because of its "lacy" appearance, it's great for making decorative edges on hats or boot cuffs.
If you want to get a little fancier, the pattern below allows you to outline the shell layer with a solid color like the banner picture. This pattern uses a treble crochet for the shell and a single crochet for the outline row.

The Millionaire's Proposal: A Destined For Love Novel by [Denison, Janelle] 
Grace Holbrook believed she couldn't have children, but now she was pregnant after just one night with sexy, bad boy Ford McCabe. She was delighted by the news, but not so thrilled when Ford insists they get married, especially when his recent return to Whitaker Falls after eleven years away is shrouded in secrets.Ford has always wanted Grace. Even back when he was the town rebel and should have known better -- until he was blamed for the death of her brother and was shunned by the community. Now a millionaire businessman, he's back to claim what is rightfully his . . . including Grace and the baby they'd created together.  
 AMAZON  I gave it 4 STARS

An emotional story, with really good main characters.  I liked it.

It really struck me in a certain spot in the story how uncaring most of the people in the town had been towards Ford as a young man.  He went hungry for days and no one noticed although they did pay attention to making his life a "living hell", in other ways.  And when he came back there were very few people willing to welcome him back or even try to see him as he was now.  It was heartwarming though that a few did.  

There were some good, interesting people in the story as well.  Ellis, Grace's father was one of the "not so nice" people of the story.  His hatred of Ford was still alive and easy to come to the surface for ELEVEN years.  It's a wonder he didn't have another heart attack after living with that eating him alive.   I really hated how he treated his very much grown up daughter and the way he tried to manipulate her.  While I understood where it came from, I still hated it.   

One of my favorite parts that made me smile?  When Grace was upset about something and she wasn't going to eat.  Ford tenderly but firmly said, "Feed my baby."  There were also other tender moments as well as other challenges to them making a life together.

The Duke's Disaster (True Gentlemen) by [Burrowes, Grace] 
Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, exercises the pragmatism for which he's infamous when his preferred choice of bride cries off, and her companion, Lady Thea Collins, becomes his next choice for his duchess. Lady Thea's mature, sensible and even rather attractive-what could possibly go wrong?
As a lady fallen on hard times, Thea doesn't expect tender sentiments from His Grace, but she does wish Noah had courted her trust, lest her past turn their hastily arranged marriage into a life of shared regrets. Is His Grace courting a convenient wife, or a beautiful disaster?   AMAZON 4.5 STARS on Amazon

I'll be honest, at first I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book or not.  I thought, "I just might have made a mistake choosing this one."
I'm glad to say that didn't last for long and I ended up really, really liking it a lot.  Noah had a lot more good to him than anyone ever suspected.  He is a lot more responsible for someone with the rascally Winters blood in him.  And the awkward interactions between Noah and Thea soon became much more interesting to listen to as they got to know each other better.  Thea's brother didn't have the IQ of a flea.  You really begin to realize it more as the story goes on.  Especially when you realize the dangers that his negligence put her in. There are some good secondary characters in the book, who added to the story. 
The trauma that Thea suffered became clear to me so much sooner than it did the Duke.    I kept wanting to yell at him, "Come on, figure it out. You are smart, it's not what you think."  But I forgave him pretty quickly and really enjoyed BOTH Thea and Noah.  When they weren't mad at each other or misunderstanding each other, they were a hoot!
Some of their "talks" still makes me smile. 

There is a surprise or two and a major twist towards the end of the book.  It was a good thing that I was sitting down.  

The Truth About Bethel's Bill Johnson

The Truth About Bethel's Bill Johnson

Wednesday, August 24, 2016


When Noelle Stevenson saw the positive results of her pregnancy test, she didn't know what to do. The baby's father was gone, killed serving his country in Iraq. And nineteen-year-old Noelle was barely making ends meet putting herself through college and working part-time. So when her take-charge boss, Devlin Hunter, offered to marry her--in a purely temporary business arrangement--how could she possibly refuse?
Dev wanted to do the right thing for a woman in need. But he didn't anticipate that his beautiful bride, wed in a marriage of convenience, would stir his hardened heart. This platonic partnership was rapidly headed down the road to romance...

I like Susan Mallery's books.  Most of the time.  But for some reason, there doesn't seem to be any middle ground for me when I read her books.  I either really like them or they leave me feeling..blah.  This book just didn't do it for me.  It could have been so much more.  It was so bland it could have been called vanilla. 
There were some interesting moments but it dragged so much at times too.  The interesting times weren't enough to save the story.

Snow Pup (Holiday Heartwarmers Book 2) by [Barbour, Mimi] 
In this delightful Christmas love story, Deputy Shawna Mallory finds Billy McCrae - a runaway boy sleeping in a mound of snow with an anxious puppy guarding him. He’s a sad child surviving a terrible existence until she puts a stop to it and becomes his foster parent. She’s drawn to the snarky kid and just wants his life to be happier, his and the stray mutt who won’t leave his side. Not that the boy cares about the dog… or her. Then she meets his father, the one who abandoned the boy when he was five.

John Reid McCrae wants only one thing in his life to make it worth living. Years ago he’d lost his son to a bitter wife and now his goal is to get Billy back. He’ll do whatever it takes, no matter who gets hurt. Until he meets the town’s stunning deputy. Can he put his needs ahead of her happiness?    AMAZON

I really liked this story.  Probably my favorite so far of the Series.  Shawna, Billy and John were each unique in their own ways and totally likable.  Their pain was easy to understand as the story unfolded. Even when Billy was snarky, you could so get the why of it. You could also see what time to time, the sweetness to this kid, that he was hiding.
It was a dramatic meeting when Billy, Shawna and Snow met in the first chapter.  
It just seemed like I flew through the story.  I thought maybe it was the number of the pages.  But then when I re-checked the number (95) I thought, "No, its was too full for that." 
I just really enjoyed the story and the author did a good job in the pages that were there.  
Sure there were no real big surprises but I didn't have a problem with that.   I guess for me, it was about the characters.  f you want a deeper story, this is probably not for you.  But for others?  I think you just might enjoy this charming story.

Benzen: A Sci-Fi Alien Romance (Warriors of Orba Book 1) by [Zenia, Zara] 
After escaping their home, six aliens, including Benzen, hope to find freedom on a different planet. They end up crashing onto a strange planet, a strange culture, and even stranger inhabitants.
They expected to learn some new things. However, one didn't expect to find love. 
The Orba warriors are on the run from their people, now that their once peace-loving planet has been taken over by a hostile dictator, Palzu. They find out that they ended up on Earth and meet a young woman named Allison who takes them under her wing. 
When Palzu's soldiers come after them, the group splits up and Benzen stays behind to protect Allison. But then he starts to develop feelings for her. 
What will happen when he's forced to show her what he truly is? Will she accept him or fear him? And will they be able to escape Palzu's forces?     LINK   2 STARS

The plot idea was a pretty good one and it could have been so much more. But it wasn't.  It didn't really draw me in all that much.  Maybe its because although I get the idea of these aliens crash landed on earth, you expect them to have a learning curve.  But I guess I don't like my alien stories to be quite this clueless.  There were even times that  Allison.the human in the story, seemed like a little kid.  Although, she didn't seem that way when the sex scenes came up, which of course there were a few. 
There was a small spark when Allison and Benzen get captured by the evil aliens.  Allison had a pretty creative idea to help save them.. Alas, for me it wasn't enough to save this story.  

Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate it.  But I was disappointed, so I had to give it 2 Stars on Amazon.

By the way, I don't think the eBook  cover picture, matches very well with the description inside the book of Benzen.   At least that is my impression.

Embrace the Change- August

"Embrace The Change - 
Help Is On The Way!"

Doug Addison, Los Angeles, CA

August is here and I am really excited! Prophetically, it is the 8th month and 8 represents new beginnings. Quite often, we will see the start of new things in August. As this happens, expect to see the old things die away.
I have had heavenly encounters all month involving promotions and commissioning of new plans to continue to prepare us for this next powerful move of God that is coming.

The word I am hearing from God for August is the "pain of change". Embracing changes will help you to transition from the old to the new. (Photo via flickr)
I had an encounter last Sunday and a strong presence of the Lord came into my room. He spoke to me John 16 and 17, where Jesus helps His disciples get ready to transition to a new season as He was about to go back to Heaven.
Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. John 16:20-21 NIV
Many people have been mourning the loss of things that never took place or attacks of the enemy that have seemed to never end. In John 16 and 17, Jesus prayed for Himself, His disciples, and then the people they were going to reach as a result of the disciples' grief, loss and suffering.
The Lord is praying for you right now and sending blueprints, plans and strategies for you to be positioned into this new movement at hand. The pain of getting here will soon be forgotten as the new baby is born. The new baby represents new gifts, callings and blessings that are on their way.
The Next 6 Months

I have been seeing a chessboard coming down from Heaven in August. This represents new things that are going to be moved into place, a radical realignment. Your calling and assignment for the next 7 years is going to start to be revealed to you. (Photo via Pixabay)
For many, there has been a missing piece or part that is going to suddenly appear. As this happens, there is going to be a huge transition and repositioning.
Transitional Help from Heaven

I saw transitional teams of angels getting assigned to help many people who are being called to be part of this next move of God. Things are going to speed up and this will help with the pain of crossing over to this new season and time.
As the new wind from Heaven comes, it is going to kick up debris, but do not let it distract you from what God is revealing. Many root causes and covert attacks of the enemy are going to be revealed.
Things Hidden Now Being Revealed

We are in a time in which hidden revelation is being revealed to us for this new 7-year season of harvest we are about to enter into.

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3 NIV
God is positioning and summoning you by name. Invitations are going out in the spirit for one of the greatest moves in history. He is inviting and commissioning people who have been crying out for changes. Something new is rumbling like a rocket about to take off into something new.
ElijahList Prophetic Resources
All Things New

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV
God is beginning to release new strategies for this transitional time. The season we are entering into will require new strategies from Heaven. You will not be able to pour the new wine into old wineskins without it making a mess.
Watch for These Strategies to Come:

• New ways that are needed to reach people with God's love.
• New ministry techniques needed for this new revival.
• New music, sound and language that will awaken a generation.
• New art, writing and creative expressions.
• How to finance new Kingdom projects, new radical churches and Kingdom businesses.
New Wave of Prophets Commissioned

On July 29, I saw a major shifting happening in the Courts of Heaven regarding the callings of prophetic people.
I saw and heard a meeting happening and many prophetic men and women's prophetic words and ministries were being evaluated. The purpose was to choose a new group of new wave—or new wineskin—prophets that will be used strongly over the next few years.
Then, the following morning on July 30, I heard an angel announce, "Get up because a decision has been made." There were 200 new wave prophets commissioned in Heaven. These prophets varied in age, many young and some older. They all had been through the fiery furnace of testing. Most of them were among the hidden ones that are unknown and have been set aside to do a special assignment and work. (Photo via Wikimedia)
The time has come for the reason these people came to Earth. Some of them had prophetic keys and assignments from previous prophets that had gotten judgmental or had stepped away from their assignments.
There was a great deal of rejoicing by the angels over this occurrence. These newly commissioned prophets will begin to emerge over the next six months.
Watch for Iran to Open

At the same time as the new prophets were being commissioned, I overheard a strategy meeting in the Courts of Heaven. There has been a peace treaty in the spiritual realm for Persia—this is Iran.
A battle has been raging and there is a shift in the spiritual realm. There will be a window of time for prophetic dreams as the Lord is visiting Persia from now, through November 11, 2016.
These dreams will be significant, but will continue to come after that as well. God was giving out prayer assignments to some key prophetic intercessors to open this divine window of time.
This truly is an exciting season and I would encourage you to stay focused on what God is doing and not the negative rumblings that are happening on Earth. Rise above the storms and do not get caught in the outpour of negativity and fear. God's ways are higher than these.

A Hollywood Bride (Ryder & Paige #2) (Billionaires' Brides of Convenience) by [Lee, Nadia]
Ryder Pryce-Reed. Billionaire. Hollywood superstar. The man every man wants to be. The man every woman wants to have. 
I am about to become his bride...but only so he can claim his grandfather's legacy. The world is furious that he will belong to a working girl as ordinary as me. 
Our deal was supposed to be simple. I marry him for a year; he ensures that my unborn child and I are taken care of. 
But now everything's complicated. We can't keep our hands off each other. Enemies, both past and present, want to tear us apart. And...I'm in love with Ryder. 
How do you keep a man everyone says isn't yours to keep? 
Note: This installment of Ryder and Paige's story does NOT contain a cliffhanger ending. 

I liked the book, having read book #1 of their story it was good to read the completion of it. There were some twists and turns to it and Both Ryder and Paige were interesting people. The story did begin to drag a bit in spots though. But I think it might have been because of the times they actions were juvenile, high school type ones. Like, not listening to each other, not answering phone calls or texts for DAYS. I understood some of the reasons but still, they are supposed to be adults. I guess people in love do stupid things especially when they don't even know right away that they ARE in love.

I did like the amusing turn of phrase that the author used and I'm going to give you a peek into one of my favorites. Ryder thinks, "Paige is a terrible liar. She wouldn't ask me for help if she was hiking through the Sahara with a thimbleful of water." There are a few more but I liked that it wasn't something that was overused.

By the way, nice job on the art for the kindle version of this book.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

When she began to call him "Daddy" at the accident scene, it isn't long before he wants it to be true.  Amelia, also has a heart as big as all outdoors, something she has in common with Harley.  She's at her wit's end though with her half-brother Jimmy.  Something has got to change and soon.  Harley helps her with that and not just at this one meeting when he answered the police call. 
There is a HEA ending all around, with Grumpy right in the middle of it all.  Just like usual.

Prophets of God's Heart, U Won't BE caged by Jezebel

Lana Vawser's Profile Photo
In the words I have released this week I have shared continually about the onslaught many are facing and the increase of opposition and pressure in the past few weeks but that is because August is strategic in it's sudden alignments and favour He is releasing, but many have been facing this onslaught that feels completely opposite to moving forward and success. I felt the Lord say today if you are facing this intensity of opposition, you are advancing and on the right track. The enemy is scared and you are moving towards a significant breakthrough.
Tonight I felt the Lord highlight the prophets of His heart. The prophets of intimacy, the bridal prophets and I felt the Lord wanting to encourage you that as you have been living surrendered to Him this onslaught many of you have been feeling that has left you wondering what's going on, what you have done wrong or what you have missed, I felt the Lord wanted you to know that you are right on track.
This SIDESWIPE attack is the spirit of Jezebel that is coming against many of the prophets of His heart right now to cause you to run and hide, to cage you, because the Lord is about to LAUNCH YOU!!!!
There is a DIVINE LAUNCHPAD that the Lord is leading you to that is beyond anything that you can imagine. It is a positioning and establishment of heavenly government and Kingdom alignment in your life that is going to see you step further into your destiny. Many of you have been hearing the Lord say that this is the time to arise and shine and take your place, yet this onslaught has made you want to run and hide. Do not run and hide, for you are about to take your place in a whole new way, space and pace. You have been prepared for such a time as this and the Lord is about to position you in new ways to release His rhema word and love to bring breakthrough.
There is an intensity from the Jezebellic spirit to silence you, to cage you and contain you because you are moving into a position and awakened authority in Him that is going to see the enemy running scared.
I saw many of the prophets of His heart not only feeling hit hard, but a spirit of confusion all around them. Many who have been hearing His voice and know His voice, suddenly doubting what they hear. Suddenly doubting whether it's Him and a mental torment in the lack of clarity. This confusion is bringing fear on many of God's prophets because it's aim is to cause them to believe they have 'missed what He is saying' and 'moved in the wrong direction' and cause them to withdraw, to run and hide.
There is a double portion of revelation, clarity and insight coming to the prophets of His heart right now and the enemy is petrified, for this level of accuracy the Lord is releasing will uncover plans and plots of the enemy before they are put in place, it will see a move of His Spirit released in the Church and on the earth releasing the purposes and plans flowing from the heart of God on a scale like we have never seen, breaking chains of fear, discouragement and despair and releasing God's people into an awakening of His love, hope and freedom that will bring forth a maturity and strengthening that will rise up God's people as UNSTOPPABLE.
Prophets of His heart, don't give up! Don't run and hide! You will not be caged! The Lion of Judah is ROARING OVER YOU and breaking this attack! He is healing your heart, your soul and body and about to launch you into a whole new position. There will be such restoration, increase and healing that you will receive, you won't know yourself.
I felt the Lord say "This Jezebellic spirit will be very sorry it touched and messed with the prophets of My heart. They are about to arise with greater intimacy with Me, revelation, awakened authority and message of My love and goodness that will see darkness FLEE from them and all those around them at the level of manifestation of My Shekinah Glory through them!!!!!! Prophets of My heart, the enemy is decreeing TROUBLE, TROUBLE and HERE COMES MORE TROUBLE, BUT I AM DECREEING OVER YOU DOUBLE UPON DOUBLE, UPON DOUBLE, UPON DOUBLE!!!"     LINK

The Girl With the Dragonfly Tattoo: An Austin, Texas Art Mystery (The Michelle Hodge Series Book 4) by [Woods, Roslyn]
Could you forgive the father who abandoned you to an indifferent mother when you were only two? When thirty-nine year old Octavia Bishop hears from an Austin lawyer that she needs to come to Texas to bury Edwin Bishop, the father she can barely remember, she finds herself in emotional turmoil. It's especially confusing to discover he had a secret life and a different name. After learning his death is being looked into as a homicide, Octavia has little hope of finding answers until she meets two important people: Shell Hodge, the person who heard her father's last words, and Gus Kerr, her father's closest friend--a man who is too attractive, and possibly too dangerous, to ignore. This is Book 4 of The Michelle Hodge Series, but it is perfectly readable as a standalone.  AMAZON 3 STARS

This is kind of a hard one for me to rate. I did like the main characters and this was my first introduction to Shell Hodge.   I did like her too, she was an honest, loyal friend.   I didn't really get all that drawn into her romance with her boyfriend/fiancee Dean.  Maybe it would have helped if I had read the other books that they were in together (if they were).  I just wasn't feeling the sparks, the worry and concern yes, sparks not so much.  On the plus side was the fact was that although it's Book 4 in the Series, it really did stand all on its own and was easy to follow.  Gus and Octavia (Tavy) were cautiously becoming friends, with an attraction that they were fighting.   No Insta-Love here.  Just a steady learning to know each other and at times taking verbal pot shots at each other. Tavy hardly knew him and he knew so much about her father, it lead to a lot of misunderstandings.  Especially since the minute she arrived in town, things began to snowball against her.  Gus had a teenage daughter, who added some drama as well.  Madison, was well written with all the teenage angst you would expect.  You could also see the goodness in her as well.  She was doing pretty good considering how tough it was being shuttled back and forth with her mom and dad. 
This also a clean story with no sexual scenes.  
All the questions get answered in the end, all the mysteries solved and some HEA in the works for Gus & Tavy AND Dean & Shell.  
What was hard for me in this story?  The length of the book.  I think that is mainly because of how slowly it all seemed to move.  

By the way, I really did like the cover picture on this book.  Very attractive, creative and in keeping with much of the story.    

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Continuous Praise Produces

DaIly Devotional
I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth (Psalm 34:1 NKJV).
Did you know it is possible to experience the joy of the Lord on a continual basis? The key to experiencing continual joy is developing a heart that is filled with continual praise and a willingness to view your life—past, present, and future—with a positive attitude.
The Israelites were surrounded by the goodness of God as they journeyed through the desert to freedom, yet they did not view their experience with a positive frame of mind. Because they complained about their situation, many of them never entered the good land God already had waiting for them.
Had they viewed their circumstances positively, acknowledged the goodness of God, and walked in joy, they would have gone straight into the good land. Their negativity robbed them of joy, dishonored God, and cost them the good life.
So praise God for His grace that covers your past, your present, and your future. His grace is able to turn even deliberate sin from the past around for your good and His glory—if you will hand it over to Him in faith.
You experience joy when nothing from the past has the power to condemn or sadden you, when your memories are only of the positive because you trust in God’s goodness towards you. You experience joy when you focus on the goodness of God in your present situation and believe you will spend your future walking in His grace and mercy.
Continuous joy produces continuous praise for all the good things God has done and is going to do. After all, when you are touched by His goodness, how can you do anything but continually praise God for His kindness and love towards you?
Confession: My God is a good God, and His mercy endures forever. I choose right now to trust Him with every aspect of my life—past, present, and future—knowing that He is able to turn every situation and circumstance for my good. His praise will continually be in my mouth.

My Note- I  see it this way..continuous praise causes continuous joy!!!

The Jezebel Spirit, What it's like (pic)



3.03 minutes run time.

A Different way to look at it.


A Game of Chance (Mackenzie Family Book 5) by [Howard, Linda]
On the trail of a vicious criminal, agent Chance Mackenzie found the perfect bait for his trap: Sunny Miller. So Chance made himself the only man she could trust—and then arranged for her long-missing father to find out about them.
What Chance hadn't foreseen was that Sunny had reasons of her own for hiding from her father—and now Chance's deception had brought them both one step closer to the end of everything they held dear.  AMAZON   4 Stars

Intense.  Both of the main characters I liked, they were not the ''normal'' people you would run across.  Unusual start to the way Chance started life and became a Mackenzie.  That did get my attention.   The whole Mackenzie family was interesting.   One of the cutest and funny personalities was Chance's niece, "Nick".  She made me smile quite often.  

Sunny also had an intense life, always looking over her shoulder.  She was tough but still found ways to enjoy life as best as she can.  The one time, she let herself trust a bit, she gets into a "relationship" with Chance and it bit her in the butt.  OK, not exactly a relationship, there was sex.  And fair amount of it. I guess I have to chalk it up to the dangerous situations, the attraction that was already there, Chance's practised seduction,  for Sunny's quick fall into "bed" with Chance.  Otherwise it would be hardier to believe.  Remember I said that I liked Chance?  Well, I did because I saw where he came from and what he was hoping to do.  But there was manipulation from the word go when it came to his setting things up with Sunny.  And he sure was cold in the beginning when it came to using her.   His being in control of his feelings around her, don't last all that  long though, which really shocks him.  Good.  
After everything hits the fan, things wrap up fairly quickly.   
So I guess, my review would be that I liked it with a few reservations.

Confessing to the Cowboy (Cowboy Cafe Book 4) by [Cassidy, Carla]
Someone is killing waitresses at the Cowboy Café. Three women are dead, and Sheriff Cameron Evans means to find out why. But as he works to solve the case, the hunky sheriff must push beyond his feelings for the café's owner. There's a murderer on the loose. Passion has no place here.

For Mary Mathis, the crime is personal. Not only are the victims her employees, they may be a sign of something deeper. Eight years ago she came to Grady Gulch fleeing a violent past that has scarred her for life. Now she has to discover if that history is dooming the women who work for her. She already knows it has made new love impossible—no matter what she may hat she may secretly desire. AMAZON

I liked this story and the main characters. There was also a town full of characters as well. Mary is running scared and she had plenty of reasons to be hiding. As time goes on she realizes that there is even more reasons to be afraid that she originally thought. Not only herself but her son had been building a new life in Grady Gulch. They had been hiding in plain sight in this small town. Mary's son, Matt had made some attachments with people of the town. Mary was much more cautious, she was careful in all of her interactions with other people. Sheriff Cameron Evans had a strong attraction to Mary but he just couldn't seem to make any headway with her. All these years, he has been in love with her. He just didn't know what to make of her. Even when she pushed him away, he could at times see a wistful longing in her at times too.
There was a good mystery going on about who the murderer was and at one time, I had wondered about one person in particular. But I also kind of let it go as other potential suspects cropped up. In the end, it was the person that I had suspected but that didn't take the shock value away as the person showed up and was revealed in a surprise attack.

Garris Elkins: 'The Drones Of Prayer Are Coming'

Garris Elkins: 'The Drones Of Prayer Are Coming'

In order to wisely navigate this unique moment in human history, we will need an abundance of God's wisdom. Wisdom gives us the ability to conceptualize a larger reality - a Kingdom reality. That reality is seen most clearly when viewed from a heavenly perspective where we are now seated with Jesus at the right hand of the Father. From our heavenly position in Christ, we are able to see this life in a radically different way - giving us the ability to create and release culture-shifting prayers in the form of declarations, decrees and prophesy.
This concept of Heaven-to-Earth prayer is like the flight of a drone that provides a heavenly perspective to its earthbound pilot. Without this heavenly perspective, the impact of our prayers will be limited because we will craft our prayers from within the narrow scope of an earthbound view of reality.
Seeing From a Higher Perspective - Heaven's Viewpoint
In the last few years, drone technology has developed to such a degree that you can now purchase a drone with a high-definition camera attached. These drones can be wirelessly linked to your smart phone to follow you wherever you travel. The camera provides a video similar to one produced by a professional camera-person riding in a helicopter filming the world below for a high-quality television documentary.
I have a friend who has a photography business. Right after purchasing an excellent camera, the next thing he purchased was a drone with an attached, high-definition camera. The "money shot" in each of his videos comes from the drone footage. He takes the viewer higher to see a perspective not visible from the limitations of an earthbound camera.
In one video he was driving through the wide-open sagebrush expanse of the American West. His drone was able to film his moving vehicle from 300 hundred feet above while he was traveling 40 miles an hour down a dusty country road. The drone was pacing his car providing spectacular views of the surrounding countryside while feeding back the images to the smart-phone he held in his hand. The camera footage was spectacular!
When a drone first lifts off the ground and the camera begins to roll, everything changes. Objects next to buildings that were previously hidden from horizontal sight are now revealed from a vertical perspective. Side roads never before seen are revealed for the first time. Unexplored canyons hidden beyond the edge of a tree-lined roadway are brought into view with the help of the drone's elevated camera position.
If we are going to partner with God to bring Heaven to Earth, we must first see from Heaven's viewpoint. We can only import what we can see. God the Father seated us with Jesus at His right hand to provide us with a view of our world only seen from the throne of God. This is the perspective Wisdom will use to help us conceptualize and release faith-filled prayers. Without Heaven's perspective we will rely on the resources of a narrow understanding of reality and a limited line of sight from which to craft our prayers.
God is calling you to experience a drone-like prayer life. What you see and declare from Heaven's perspective may be contrary to what is seen by those limited to an earthbound vision of reality. Speak the truth in love to those who question what you see and remain humble if opposition comes.
God gave this sight to you to use as an invitation for others to join you to view together the higher panoramic revelation of what God is about to do on the Earth as it is in Heaven.

Texas Double Date (Port Serenity Series Book 4) by [DeFee, Ann]
Landry Valliere—New Orleans defense attorney—never thought that an innocent bet with his law partner would turn his life upside down. All he has to do is survive in Port Serenity, Texas, for a month without credit cards or cash. Much to his dismay he discovers that getting a job with his limited life skills is going to be a challenge. It takes a couple of nights in a flea-bag hotel, and a dollop of desperation, for Landry to apply for the shampoo girl job at Sunny McAllister’s salon and dog grooming spa, Double Date. 
Sunny’s new employee is definitely eye candy, but there’s something off kilter about him. Her first thought was that he was running from the law. He’s too smart, too charming, too everything to be doing a menial job in her salon. And speaking of charming, add sexy to that description, and she’s hooked. The truth about Landry comes out when Sunny’s good friend is accused of murder and needs a hot-shot lawyer. 
Will Sunny kick him to the curb for his duplicity? And can a big city attorney and a small town girl have a chance at love? Of course, romances always have a happy ending.   AMAZON  4 stars. The Amazon Kindle version will be available, September 6, 2016.

An emotional start to the book.  Fast forward to Sunny as an adult, surrounded by wacky friends and employees.  Loved them.  Most of the town was in fact, a bit wacky, they marched to the beat of a different drummer.   That didn't take away from the fact that most of them were fun, charming and their own kind of normal, everyday people.  Although there was much of the story that could be considered predictable, it was charming and the outcome of the murder was surprising.  As was the journey of finding out what really happened and who was involved.  Like I said it was charming and I literally flew through the story.  It left me with a smile.
Also included is the excerpt to her book, "A Texas State of Mind."

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
