My Story for His Glory

The Coffee Club Mysteries February 4, 2019



Six Mysteries Are Brewing in Small-Town Kansas
The coffee shop on the corner of First and Main in Oak Grove, Kansas, seems to attract a series of mysterious events. Or perhaps it is the six women who frequent the shop for book club who are the magnets for trouble. . . .

Morgan Butler, owner of the Coffee Perk, finds a project worker hanged at her shop.

Evelyn Kliff discovers a church meal organizer dead.

Harper Daggett is being stalked for an antique jade owl she bought.

Baker Jeanine Gransbury’s charity event money goes missing.

Jo Anderson shares hazelnut coffee creamer, sending a woman into anaphylaxis shock.

Penny Parson finds a gun in one of her beehives.

Join them as they unravel six unexplained events that have the potential to ruin business and spoil friendships if not handled with care.

My thoughts:

This is a collection of cute, cozy mysteries all tied together with the ladies in the coffee club.

Of course there are some stories I liked better then others, just different writing styles. But if you enjoy a light-hearted mystery this collection would be up your alley.

I did have trouble gauging how old the ladies where until it was there story, that wasn’t made very clear in other book. They are a wide variety of ages as it turns out 🙂

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your favorite retailer.

Review: Forsaken Dreams March 18, 2013


Forsaken Dreams by MaryLu Tyndall

From the backcover of Forsaken Dreams:

Embark on a seafaring adventure in a brand-new series from bestselling author MaryLu Tyndall. After witnessing the death and destruction caused by the Civil War, Colonel Blake Wallace is eager to leave his once precious Southern homeland for the pristine shores of Brazil and the prospect of a new utopian community. Widow Eliza Crawford seeks passage on Wallace’s ship harboring a dirty secret—and a blossoming hope for a fresh start. But will dangers from the sea and from man keep them from the peace and love they long for?

My Thoughts:

This is the second book I have read by MaryLu Tyndall. The first was Veil of Pearls, which I absolutely loved, probably the best book I read in 2012. So I had high expectations for Forsaken Dreams.

MaryLu paints a vivid picture of the scenes and characters. At first the two main characters where a little too sweet on each other, it all seemed too perfect, which it was until the conflict arises. Then we get to the good stuff.

All the characters seem to have gotten on the ship, New Hope, to escape their past. But they soon learn you can’t outrun your past, it will catch up with you. Now they are forced to face it and reconcile their future with their past.

Can’t we all relate? Don’t we all wish there were things we could forget about, but the truth is our past has shaped us into the people we are now. That same holds true for this cast of characters MaryLu introduces us to. The past can also be redeemed, but only with the help of our Savior, the Redeemer.

Not only are the main characters endearing that whole cast has a story. You will get bits and pieces of their story as your read Forsaken Dreams and it will made you want to read the rest of the series. I can’t wait to read the next (whenever that will be) and see what secrets the other characters are hiding.

Oh, and there are some mysterious things taking place as well. But you will have to read the book to find out what I am talking about.
