The Flames Took So Much.
She Can’t Lose Her Father As Well.

Meg Townsend and her sister, Sylvie, seek a quiet existence managing the family bookshop. Meg feels responsible for caring for their father, Stephen, whose spirit and health are both damaged from his time as a prisoner during the Civil War. Her one escape is the paintings she creates and sells in the bookshop.

Then the Great Fire sweeps through Chicago’s business district. The fiery explosions and chaos stir up memories of war for Stephen as he runs from the blaze and becomes separated from his daughters. Days later, when the smoke has cleared, Meg and Sylvie manage to reunite with him. Their home and shop are lost, and what’s left among the ashes may be even more threatening than the flames, for they learn that a close friend was murdered the night of the fire–and Stephen has been charged with the crime. After he is committed to the Cook County Insane Asylum, where they cannot visit him, Stephen feels as lost to them as the shop that now lies in rubble.

Though homeless and suddenly unemployed, Meg must not only gather the pieces of her shattered life but prove the truth of what happened that night, before the asylum truly drives her father mad.

My thoughts:

I love a Jocelyn Green novel. She comes up with some of the best storylines. I’m excited that this is the beginning of a new series, too.

I really don’t know much about the fires in Chicago so reading this was very interesting and informative.

I could relate to Meg and what was taken from her (I won’t tell  you what it is), but it is a fear I deal with, not the exact same thing but something similar. I hoped throughout the book she wouldn’t loose her spirit and hope. I was curious to see how it would all play out.

I enjoyed Sylvie’s character as well. She was spunky, yet often felt overlooked.

I had my suspicions of what might have happened the night of the fire but Jocelyn did a great job of placing enough doubt about what really happene that it kept me wondering until the end.

If you enjoy historical romance or Jocelyn Green’s novels I am sure you will but thrilled with this one.

Review and Giveaway: Ishmael Covenant by Terry Brennan February 27, 2020

Filed under: Book Reviews — Melissa Finnegan @ 2:32 pm



His marriage in tatters and his career ruined by lies, Diplomatic Security Service agent Brian Mullaney is at the end of his rope. Banished to Israel as punishment by his agency, he’s assigned to guard a US ambassador and an insignificant box. Little does he know that this new job will propel him straight into a crisis of global proportions. Inside the box is a messianic prophecy about the fate of the world. And a dark enemy known as The Turk and the forces of evil at his command are determined to destroy the box, the prophecy, and the Middle East as we know it.
When Ambassador Cleveland gets in the way, his life and his daughter’s life are threatened–and Mullaney must act fast. Now agents of three ancient empires have launched covert operations to secure nuclear weapons, in direct defiance of the startling peace treaty Israel and its Arab neighbors have signed. And a traitor in the US State Department is leaking critical information to a foreign power. It’s up to Mullaney–still struggling with his own broken future–to protect the embassy staff, thwart the clandestine conspiracies, and unmask a traitor–before the desert is turned into a radioactive wasteland. Fans of Joel C. Rosenberg, Steven James, and Ted Dekker will relish the deadly whirlpool of international intrigue and end-times prophecy in Ishmael Covenant–and will eagerly await the rest of this new trilogy.

My thoughts:

This is book is a lot. Not my typical light read. But if you like books that have a lot of government things and what is going on in other countries then this is a book you will enjoy.

It had a ring of “Left Behind” to it in that we are dealing with end times and how different countries and people react to that truth or situation.

There were parts that my brain kind of glazed over but it didn’t take long before I was engaged again. There are many different characters and it is difficult to keep them all straight at times but there is a index at the beginning of who is who, so that was helpful to refer back to when I needed to.

If you are looking for a book with a lot of layers and depth you would enjoy this book.

Indestructible by Blake K. Healy February 26, 2020

Filed under: Book Reviews — Melissa Finnegan @ 2:17 pm



Learn about angels and demons from a man who can see them.

This book will teach you how to battle your spiritual struggles from the winning side so that you can be victorious both in your life and in the issues happening in today’s world.

Many Christians limp through their lives feeling beat up by the enemy, their circumstances, and internal strife. They look at the pattern of world events with a sense of hopelessness. Too often they simply accept these as the natural trials and challenges of life. However, other Christians acknowledge that there is a war happening, a battle between angels and demons. They want to know: What are the rules of engagement for this battle? What weapons do we have? What kind of enemy are we facing? Is this battle always happening, or are there moments of rest and peace? Am I really meant to fight in a battle where I can’t see my enemies or my allies? Blake Healy has seen angels and demons since he was a small child. In this book readers will discover what Healy has learned about the nature of spiritual warfare after over thirty years of seeing in the spirit. They will learn the truth about how they can be victorious in both their personal battles and the battles that are happening in the world. And they will see how they can truly feel as if they are fighting their spiritual battles from the winning side. This book will:

  •  Teach readers how to posture their hearts and minds for personal spiritual battles as well as global spiritual warfare
  • Show readers how to live from the victory Jesus won on the cross
  • Give readers insight into the nature of spiritual warfare—how we fight, what winning looks like, our authority as Christians, and how much power the enemy has
  • Indestructible will show readers how to have complete victory in their daily spiritual battles and join the front lines as heaven invades earth

My thoughts:

I have read all of Blake’s books and enjoyed them. However, this book is the most practical and applicable of them all.

I loved how Blake shared Tactics and Traps of the enemy and at the end of each chapter he asks question so you can identify if this is an area you struggle with. I always thought I struggled with fear but based on his questions I don’t really have that issue. But there were others I do deal with. After you reflect on those questions you he gives you resources to read to help in that area. I have added many books to my wish list 🙂

The next part is how to become indestructible. Another powerful part of this book and he also gives resources here.

One area he talked about was community. I never have given that much thought and honestly, I like being by myself, I struggle to connect with people and have the desire to do so. I like my quiet time. But he shared a very powerful story about the power of having a community of friends to be there for you.

I had only one concern and that was with a book he recommended. Apparently, it is based on the Enneagram stuff. I know a lot of Christian do this, and I don’t know much about it, I have never looked into it, but I have also heard other Christians warn against this, that is has pagan roots and we really shouldn’t be messing with it and it is very self focused. Like I said, I don’t know much about any of that, only what I have heard, but wanted to caution you about that, I am not endorsing that at all.

Other than that word of caution, I highly recommend this book.

Review and Giveaway: Collision of Lies by Tom Threadgill February 25, 2020

The case was tragic. But it was an accident. Right?

Three years ago, a collision between a fast-moving freight train and a school bus full of kids led to devastation and grief on an unimaginable scale. But a fresh clue leads San Antonio police detective Amara Alvarez to the unlikely conclusion that one of the children may still be alive. If she’s correct, everything law enforcement believes about the accident is a lie.

With time running out, Amara must convince others–and herself–that despite all evidence to the contrary, the boy is alive. And she will do everything in her power to bring him home.

A fresh voice in suspense, Tom Threadgill will have you questioning everything as you fly through the pages of this enthralling story.

My thoughts and giveaway:

Yes, please, give me more books like this!!! I have found a new author to follow. This is a different story, in a way. There was not much focus on romance (or faith for that matter) and that was okay (typically I like a bit more). This story was well written and had so many layers to unfold.

I loved the humor thrown in by the characters, the jokes thrown back and forth.

The mystery of what happened to these children was highly engaging and motivating to read about.

I can’t wait to see what else Tom has out there for me to devour. If you enjoy a suspenseful read I am sure you will want to grab this book.

He Crossed an Ocean to Reunite His Family.
But Meeting Her Makes Him Question Everything.

Quinten Aspinall is determined to fulfill a promise he made to his deceased father to keep his family together. To do so, he must travel to Canada to find his younger siblings, who were sent there as indentured workers while Quinn was away at war. But before he leaves, his employer offers him a deal. If Quinn can find the man’s wayward niece, who ran off with a Canadian soldier, and bring her back, then he will receive his own tenant farm, enabling him to provide a home for his ailing mother and siblings.

Julia Holloway’s decision to come to Toronto has been met with one disaster after another. When her uncle’s employee rescues her from a bad situation, she fears she can never repay Quinn’s kindness. So when he asks for her help to find his sister, she agrees. The quest draws the two of them together, but soon afterward, Julia receives devastating news that will change her life forever.

Torn between reuniting his family and protecting Julia, will Quinn have to sacrifice his chance at happiness to finally keep his promise?

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this story. So many twists and turn.

Just when I thought I handle on who Julia was the author threw in something new. When that news settles we get something else to throw the reader off.

Quinn’s adventure to find his siblings will keep you interested as well. Nothing goes quit as he has planned, but it is highly engaging.

We have the added secondary character of Harriet and her desire to help the orphans being abused.

Overall, a very well done story with much to keep the reader engaged.

Groomed by Elizabeth Melendez Fisher Good February 19, 2020

Filed under: Book Reviews,Uncategorized — Melissa Finnegan @ 6:33 pm



Someone in your past sold you a false story about who you are and what you’re worth. It has been holding you back for too long. Take control of your future.
A staggering one out of three women in America was a victim of sexual abuse at some point in her childhood. No matter how many years it’s been, if that’s your story, those scars are probably still with you. But even if that’s not part of your story, this book is for you. Women today have been groomed for a lot more than just sex.
Using her own story of abuse, family tragedy, and rebellion, Elizabeth Melendez Fisher guides readers toward an understanding that grooming is oftentimes subtle, but it’s always life-altering. In Groomed Fisher incorporates the language and lessons gained over the past decade working with sex trafficking victims and her work in ministry and counseling before that. She draws out five specific ways that women have been groomed, from physical appearance to spirituality to finances, and shows how those manipulative messages have affected the way we see our worth and how they’ve oftentimes stifled and limited us. From there Fisher offers readers a way to overcome their past, starting with the all-important but rarely explored idea of a selah, or a time of rest and reflection, and exploring active ways to forgive and move forward to a new level of freedom.
No one has to be defined by her past. No one has to live for her groomers. It’s time to take a look back at where we came from to escape the messages of our past and take control of our future.

My thoughts:

As a sexual abuse survivor when I hear the word “groomed” I often think about it in those terms. Abusers groom their victims. But this book give a different bend to that word.

We can still think of the word in those terms but also in other ways. I was definitely groomed to please people, to look good on the outside no matter the turmoil going on inside of me.

We can be groomed for many different things, such as being invisible, pleasing others, looking good, being a leader, assertive.

I appreciate Elizabeth’s ministry and what she is doing to help women who have been trafficked. I also enjoyed Elizabeth’s openness and honestly in sharing her story, which at times was hard to read.

Have you been groomed? You might be surprised what you discover.

Isaiah’s Legacy by Mesu Andrews February 18, 2020

At eight years old, Shulle has known only life in a small village with her loving but peculiar father. When Uncle Shebna offers shelter in Jerusalem in exchange for Shulle’s help tutoring King Manasseh, Judah’s five-year-old co-regent who displays the same peculiarities as her father, she’s eager to experience the royal court. But Shulle soon realizes the limits of her father’s strict adherence to Yahweh’s Law when Uncle Shebna teaches her of the starry hosts and their power.
Convinced Judah must be freed from Yahweh’s chains, she begins the subtle swaying of young Manasseh, using her charm and skills on the boy no one else understands. When King Hezekiah dies, twelve-year-old Manasseh is thrust onto Judah’s throne, bitter at Yahweh and eager to marry the girl he adores. Assyria’s crown prince favors Manasseh and twists his brilliant mind toward cruelty, beginning Shulle’s long and harrowing journey to discover the Yahweh she’d never known, guided with loving wisdom by Manasseh’s mother: Isaiah’s daughter, the heartbroken Hephzibah. Amid Judah’s dark days, a desperate remnant emerges, claiming the Lord’s promise, “Though we’re helpless now, we’re never hopeless–because we serve El Shaddai.” Shulle is among them, a girl who becomes a queen through Isaiah’s legacy.

My thoughts:

This book was sooo good. I forget how much I enjoy a good Biblical fiction, but Mesu knows how to write it. She does her research and brings Bible stories to life.

I have read the scripture about King Hezekiah but never remember what happened after he died.

This is a truly beautiful story of redemption and hope. The evil that slowly permeated Menasseh’s life is so sad and even bothered me at times, but I had to keep in mind there was hope on the other side and there was.

If you enjoy Biblical fiction I am sure you will want to pick this book up.

In this novel, Helen has to relive the worst moment of her teenage life, the night when a mysterious murder occurred during a teen prank.

I really enjoy Dana Mentink’s Love Inspired series’. They are so good and this one had me reading past my bedtime so I could see “who dunnit.”
Have no fear, you don’t have to read the other books in this series to enjoy this one, but honestly, why wouldn’t you?
Helen is a stubborn woman who feels guilty for the death of her friend. Sergio is a man with a vengeance but starts to question what God would like him to do in this situation.
The ending so sweet, I almost cried, but of course I can’t tell you what happened, you would have to read the book for yourself to find out 🙂

On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White February 13, 2020

Against Every Warning, She’s Drawn
Ever Closer to the Man Known as “Black Heart”

All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monster–a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But he would have preferred to die that day with his men rather than be recruited to the Admiralty’s codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved.

As nurse Arabelle Denler observes the so-dubbed “Black Heart,” she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their families and paths twist together unexpectedly, she realizes she has a role to play in his healing–and some of her own to do as well.

With Camden’s court-martial looming, an old acquaintance shows up, intent on using him in a plot that sends the codebreakers of Room 40 into a frenzy. With their fragile hopes for the future in the cross hairs, Arabelle and Camden must hold on to hope–and to each other–if they want to survive.

My thoughts:

Roseanna is by far one of my favorite historical romance writers. I have to read every book to puts out. I always get worried I will be disappointed but I never have been.

Arabelle is a wonderful character, she is kind and puts others ahead of herself, even when something heartbreaking happens to her. Her reaction is beyond what most people would do.

Phillip really is a good guy but something happened to make others think  he did a very horrible thing. Ultimately, he is a protector.

Then we are inside another character’s head that we soon find out relates to Phillip. At first I wasn’t sure what this part of the story had to do with the rest, but we don’t have to wonder too long.

Roseanna White fans will be thrilled with this newest release.

About the Book

Book: School of the Miraculous
Author: Kynan Bridges
Genre: Non-fiction / Christian / Pentecostal & Charismatic
Release Date: December 20, 2019
Demystifying Miracles
What if you could experience something miraculous every day?
Many Christians think of miracles as rare events for a select and fortunate few. But miracles don’t have be something mysterious and out of reach. They don’t have to be the exception. Just as they were common in the early church, they can become common for you.
School of the Miraculous: A Practical Guide to Walking in Daily Miracles by Dr. Kynan Bridges shows how every believer can develop a miracle mind-set, operate in miracles, and establish a lifestyle in which miraculous events occur.
Dr. Kynan has encountered many believers who are frustrated because they are not seeing evidence of God’s power in their circumstances. They have a growing desperation for more of His intervention in their lives. This book was designed to answer that cry for more.
The Holy Spirit is the Miracle Worker—but all miracles involve human participation in some way. Dr. Kynan reveals that our growing intimacy with God’s Spirit will lead us to see and participate in His miracles—living in His power and setting our expectations increasingly higher for His miraculous works in our lives.
This practical guide for every believer is filled with ideas for personal application, encouraging testimonies, and spiritual activation prayers for tapping into the miraculous. Enroll in the School of the Miraculous today!

More from Dr. Bridges

  • A miraculous way of life is a daily pursuit of the presence and power of God.
  • Signs and wonders are the spiritual advertisements of the power of God’s kingdom.
  • Power that is not recognized is power that is not released, and power that is not released is power that is not realized.
  • A prayer never prayed can never be answered, and a claim never placed can never be received!
  • Prayer is the spiritual life-force of the supernatural.
  • The anointing is the dynamic, yoke-destroying, burden-removing power of God working in and through us.
  • The attitude of expectancy is the atmosphere for miracles.
  • Action activates miracles. If you want to see a miraculous display of God’s power, act on His Word in faith, regardless of how you feel.
  • Jesus calls us beyond the place of fear into the place of faith, where we are empowered to live supernaturally.
  • There are certain spiritual benefits you can’t experience until you know and act upon who you are in God.
  • The more conscious and respectful you are of the presence of God, the more qualified you are to host the atmosphere of heaven.
  • Every time you proclaim the Word of God in faith, you conform your world to God’s Word. The more you proclaim, the more your life will reflect heaven.
