Blog Tour: “Music of Her Heart” by Sophie Dawson

Today I’m helping in the blogtour for Sophie Dawson’s new book, “Music of Her Heart”, just published on November 16th. It’s all about music and a marriage forced on them by circumstances. Can Red and Gema make things work?

 

About the Book

Red Dickerson is shocked to see a young woman running through the woods in the freezing rain. He’d gone to the far end of Hawk’s Wing Ranch to think after his engagement was broken by the woman he planned to marry. Recognizing her as Gema Volkovichna, one of the women from Sanctuary House, he spurs his horse to go after her. Finding she’s escaped after being kidnapped by the infamous King Gang, he vows to keep her safe.

Gema Volkovichna is one of the newest women to come to Sanctuary House in Stones Creek, Colorado. She came to find work and possibly a husband. When a spring blizzard forces them to spend three days alone in a line shack, there’s only one conclusion. She and Red must marry to salvage her reputation.

Can Gema and Red learn to be husband and wife? Will love grow from this forced marriage? Will the King Gang return to reclaim what they lost? Can Red and Gema learn to dance together to the MUSIC of HER HEART?

Blog Tour: “There Was Always Laughter” by Sarah Holman

Join me today in the blog tour for Sarah Holman’s new release, “There was Always Laughter in Our House”, as she shares an introductory bit into this book!

LaughterBlogTour.png

 

“I’m writing a book about our family. I’m including a lot of the funny stories.”

All my siblings, who had a moment before been engaged in various activities around the living room, whipped their heads toward me. The room grew silent, and I turned to face them, even though my conversation was with Mom.

“What stories are you going to tell?” Rose asked looking worried.

I rolled my eyes. “Guys, I want to still be your friends after I publish the book. I won’t write any stories that I think will hurt your feelings and you can all read it before it is published.”

They didn’t look convinced. I don’t blame them. We’ve done some pretty embarrassing things. There are a few stories I could tell that would annoy, embarrass, or humiliate my siblings. Of course, since I don’t want to come home to all my stuff out on the curb, none of those stories were shared in my book ‘There Was Always Laughter in Our House’.

So, what did I share? I shared about the time that all the sisters decided to blame our brother for everything for a day, I talk about the challenge of being the shortest in the family, and I talk about wearing skirts. I also share the story of the time I sort of fell into a grave, about our idea of a perfect afternoon together, and the time our kitty ate chocolate. Enjoy these stories, and more in There Was Always Laughter in Our House.

The Vintage Jane Austen Series: Spotlight & Book Review of “Perception” by Emily Benedict

VJABlogEventBanner

Today I’m sharing about the Vintage Jane Austen series! So far I’ve had the pleasure of reading three of these novels and have enjoyed each one. They’re delightful. :) Read on to find out more about the series collection, and read my review of “Perception” by Emily Benedict!!

 

About:

VJAgraphic.pngWhat would it be like to see Elizabeth Bennet in 1930’s clothes? What if Emma Woodhouse was the daughter of a car dealership owner? What if Marianne Dashwood was seeking to become a movie star in the golden age of film? The Vintage Jane Austen series explores the world of Jane Austen, set in 1930’s America. Five authors took on Jane Austen’s five most popular novels and retold them set in the depression era, remaining faithful to the original plots. As an extra bonus to the series, there is a collection of short stories that were inspired by Jane Austen. Which of these books do you most want to read?

 

EmmelineVJAtour Emmeline by Sarah Holman (Emma): The talk of stock market crashes and depression isn’t going to keep Emmeline Wellington down. Born to wealth and privilege, Emmeline wants nothing more than to help her new friend, Catarina, find a husband. Emmeline sets her sights on one of the town’s most eligible bachelors, but nothing seems to go right. Even her friend and neighbor Fredrick Knight seems to question her at every turn.

 

 

SuitSuitabilityVJAtourSuit and Suitability by Kelsey Bryant (Sense and Sensibility): Canton, Ohio, 1935. Ellen and Marion Dashiell’s world crumbles when their father is sent to prison. Forced to relocate to a small town, what is left of their family faces a new reality where survival overshadows dreams. Sensible Ellen, struggling to hold the family together, is parted from the man she’s just learning to love, while headstrong Marion fears she will never be the actress she aspires to be. When a dashing hero enters the scene, things only grow more complicated. But could a third man hold the key to the restoration and happiness of the Dashiell family?

 

BellevereHouseVJAtourBellevere House by Sarah Scheele (Mansfield Park): It’s March, 1937 and Faye Powell couldn’t be happier. After moving to live with her uncle, a wealthy banker, she’s fallen into the swing of life with his exuberant children–including Ed. The one she’ll never admit she’s in love with. But she hadn’t reckoned on the swanky Carters getting mixed up in that vow. Ed seems to be falling for charming, sweet Helene Carter. And when Faye’s cousin BeBe trusts her with a secret about Horace Carter, Faye is in over her head. Will she betray the confidence BeBe’s given her? Will she lose Ed to Helene? The days at Bellevere House are crowded with surprises and only time will tell how God plans to unravel Faye and Ed’s hearts.

 

PerceptionVJAtourPerception by Emily Benedict (Persuasion): Upstate New York, 1930. Thirteen years ago, Abbey Evans was persuaded to break off her engagement to a penniless soldier headed to the front lines of the Great War. A daughter of one of America’s wealthiest families could never be allowed to marry so far beneath herself. But Black Tuesday changed everything. With her family’s prominence now little more than a facade, Abbey faces the loss of her childhood home. As if that weren’t enough, the only man she ever loved has returned after making his fortune – and he wants nothing to do with the young woman he courted before the war. With the past forever out of reach, the time has come for Abbey decide her own fate, before it is too late…

 

VJA Blog EventPresumption and Partiality by Rebekah Jones (Pride and Prejudice): Coming soon…A retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice… set in 1930s Arizona.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SecondImpressionsVJAtourSecond Impressions: Jane Austen’s stories have inspired writers for generations…in this collection they inspire fiction across the genres!

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the English Regency to the American 1950s, in Houston or a space freighter, fairytale land or a retirement center…Austen’s timeless characters come to life again.

Book Review:

 

Perception (Vintage Jane Austen #4)

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

 

I love the story of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. While I confess I have not read the original, I have watched the 1995 movie version more than 20 times. It’s my favourite Jane Austen story, in fact. So it should come to no surprise that so far, this book of the Vintage Jane Austen series is probably my favourite. :)
“Perception” followed closely with the original storyline, with all its richness, and yet had it’s own unique qualities that defined it as seperate. And it gave “insight” into things in the movie that you might have wondered about.
I really enjoyed reading this one, following along with Abbey’s life, and how even in the end she was able to look back and see the good in all of life’s transpirings. 
Freddy was a dashing hero, of course. How could he not be? “Captain Wentworth” (original hero’s name) will forever be one of my favourites. Always swoonworthy. ;)
There was also a tadbit of a mystery involved towards the end that was brought about to completion quite nicely. :)
I appreciate how easy “Perception” was to read, and how captivating it was. Even though I knew the story, it was fresh and new, and yet familiar and comfortable at the same time, always drawing back into its electronic pages.
Fans of Jane Austen, and “Persuasion” will definitely not want to miss this one!!

Character Spotlight:

Elaine Reynolds

 

Fifteen year old Elaine is a brand new character that shows up in “Out of the Dark”. She is still grieving the loss of her mother, and she’s looking for love and affirmation from her older boyfriend. But he proves to be more dangerous than she ever could have imagined, and by the time she realizes he’s more of a nightmare than a dream, it’s too late. She was tricked and now he has her trapped. We see many emotional glimpses inside her heart. The shame and guilt she feels…the brokenness of her heart. She puts on a tough exterior to the world around her, especially to Haley when they first meet. But inside she’s full of pain and grief and regret. She’s ready to just give up all together. But Haley and DesiRae aren’t willing to let that happen. Can they save her before it’s too late? I hope you’ll read “Out of the Dark” and follow along with Elaine’s journey to find out what happens!

It’s not over yet…

    It’s been three years since Haley Hampton rescued her sister, Avery, from a human trafficking ring. They are still struggling through the aftermath as both women desperately long for healing to come. But the emotional wounds are not easily forgotten. And the past is quickly catching up to them. A string of death threats leaves Haley on the hunt for a potential killer. As tensions run high, a single mistake could jeopardize Avery’s life.

    Then Haley encounters Elaine, a young teen trapped by human trafficking. Could she be their missing link in the case? Is there anyone they can trust? Haley must rely on God now more than ever if they intend to make it out alive. Will they find a way out of the darkness closing in? Because evil is lurking closer…and determined to win this time.

About the Book:

Because evil is lurking closer…and determined to win this time.

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

Oh this book. Where do I start? I had the immense – and I do mean immense – pleasure of reading this book twice before its release. It was so fun to see how it changed and strengthened.
As with the first book in this series (“Not Abandoned”), “Out of the Dark” is a very strong, poignant story, full of action, and truths. The author deals with the topic of human-trafficking with such gentleness and expertise.
Revisiting the familiar characters was an absolute delight – I was so happy in particular to reaquaint myself with a character whom we met in the first book of this series. I was eager to see his journey continue, even though he’s not necessarily a central character. :)
Each of the characters are well-built up, and relatable. Sisters Haley and Avery each have to go through their own unique process of healing; their struggles are present, and very well-portrayed. I believe the struggles a character goes through towards healing is a very good element in novels, and that was evident in “Out of the Dark”. I really loved the healing aspect – the journey of healing. It was beautiful, and meaningful.
Not only is this book full of beauty, it is also full of danger and suspense. There is always darkness to overcome, but sometimes a character questions whether or not it might overcome them.
Have I mentioned that this book is exciting? I can assure you that it’s not a dull one. And that ending – you will just have to read it to find out what I mean. And I highly recommend that you do so!! “Out of the Dark” is a fantastic sequel to “Not Abandoned”, and it is a story I will cherish for many years to come. I can hardly wait to read the next installment in The Mission for Freedom series!
*I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
Enjoy some sneak peaks into the story:

Character Spotlight: Haley Hampton!!

Out of the Dark Blog Tou

 

Hello! And welcome to Day Two of the “Out of the Dark” blog tour!!

Were you all able to read the kick-off post for the “Out of the Dark” blog tour yesterday? It’s a fun post, and if you missed it, be sure to check that out HERE.

In that post we shared a spotlight of the lovely and strong character, Avery Hampton. Today we are now sharing another spotlight and second main character, Haley Hampton, who is a character just as lovely and strong as her sister.

 

Character Spotlight.png

 

 

If you’ve tried visiting the second stop on this blog tour (“The Chloe Blog”), we’re sorry for the current absence of the author interview – there’s been some technical difficulties with that post at present, but we’re hopeful they will be sorted before the day is out, God-willing! In the mean time, please enjoy this special treat of getting to know another character!!!

 

Enter…Haley Hampton:

 

Welcome back, Haley! Another returning character we see is Haley, who is now twenty-four years old. She’s just graduated from the police academy and ready to start work at her hometown department. She’s tenacious and bold…and maybe a bit too impulsive. (As we noticed in “Not Abandoned”) She’s passionate about her job and fighting for the freedom and justice of those affected by human trafficking. And take note: don’t ever stand between her and her sister! She’s protective of Avery and affectionately shares in this book that she looks at Avery as “her baby”. In the pages of this book we see Haley bravely sticking her nose where it’s not supposed to be in order to seek justice, but we also see a more broken side of her. She’s struggling with guilt and trying too hard to control everything so that she can fix what’s wrong. But the tighter she holds, she more things fall apart. And, like Avery, her emotional scars place her in a dark hole, feeling hopeless and alone. But in her heart, God is calling to her, reminding her that she doesn’t have to do everything on her own. And if only she’ll listen and give Him control…then will she realize that she’s unstoppable.

Character Spotlight:

 

Avery Hampton

Avery is back in “Out of the Dark” as a twenty year old survivor of human trafficking. But she’s been through terrible pain and her heart is covered with emotional scars. In “Out of the Dark” we see Avery as a strong young woman who doesn’t feel very strong inside. She’s allowed God to use her to begin a ministry for other human trafficking victims, and she’s very proud of the safehouse she built, Redemption House. Her heart desires to save other victims, but she thinks she’s not as brave or confident as her older sister, Haley, is. (Psst, between you and me, I think Avery is one of the bravest characters I’ve met!) She tries to appear confident and whole, but inside she’s still struggling and has broken pieces. Part of her thinks she’s beyond repair, but the other part of her is still reaching out in hope that God can fulfill His promises to her and heal her and pull her out of the darkness she finds herself in. Avery is a fighter. But she’s getting tired and worried she’ll never make it out of the shadow of her past. But God will never give up on our Avery. And I believe in her. What about you?

 

*There will also be a spotlight of Haley Hampton in the wrap-up post so be sure to return and read that then!
