Drawing Fire by Janice Cantore

In Long Beach, CA, a Homicide Detective and a Private Investigator join together to solve recent murders that seem to be connected to a triple homicide that occurred 27 years prior. 

Abby Hart was supposed to die in the fire 27 years ago, with her parents and Luke Murphy's uncle, who was the cook at Abby's parents restaurant, The Triple Seven. This was a great first book in Janice Cantore's Cold Case Justice series. We are left with just enough questions o make the reader want to get the next book to see what happens. Christian approved. 4 out of 5 stars

Made with Love by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore

Keep your words soft and sweet in case you have to eat them. Amish Proverb

In Pinecraft, FL a young Amish woman dreams of owning her own pie shop; in comes a carpenter willing to make her dreams come true. Together they must overcome obstacles from the past in order to succeed in the future.

The story of Lovina and Noah is not your typical Amish story. They live in Florida where the Bishop allows things like air conditioning and electric due to the unbareable heat. There are no horse and buggies to be spoken of; the either walk, ride bikes, use public transportation or hire a driver to get around.

We see a lot of comma misuse or lack of use and also incorrect words, ex. his appears instead of this; there instead of their, etc.

This is a quick, easy read. An amazing story of God helping more than just our two main characters to trust and have faith in Him. 3 out of 5 stars.
