Two Suitors for Anna | Molly Jebber



Today I am reviewing Two Suitors for Anna, the third book in the A Keepsake Pocket Quilt series by Molly Jebber.



Molly Jebber  has written a superb sequel in this series!

Normally, the first book of the series is the hardest to write. After all, the writer is introducing the main characters, the community, and creating a story around them. And Molly did a great job with Change of Heart, the first book in the series.

But I have to say how much I enjoyed reading Two Suitors for Anna. . . poor Anna has a difficult, if not impossible, task of getting through to Noah, who brushes off her ideas, her opinions, and her decisions.

Noah may be a wonderful person, but honestly, I wanted to smack him upside the head a few times! I don’t want to ruin the story for you, so I’ll stop now. . . with a plea to read this amazing story!

Happy Reading!

But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants them to travel and live in other communities.

Grace’s Forgiveness | Molly Jebber



Today I am reviewing Grace’s Forgiveness, the second book in the A Keepsake Pocket Quilt series by Molly Jebber.


I’m enjoying this series much more than I expected to at first! This second book is easy to identify with, as I have had several friends with birthmarks, and I understand how difficult it is to live with at times, especially if it’s on or near your face.

Grace was born with a large birthmark on her face — and it seems like no one can look past it and see who she really is.

And no, I’m not going to tell you what happens, Because I don’t want to spoil the book for you! So… get a copy and read it.

You’re gonna LOVE it!

Happy Reading!


About the Book

Book: Grace’s Forgiveness

Author: Molly Jebber

Genre: Amish Historical Romance

Release Date: January 26, 2016

A handsome newcomer with secrets shows a yearning Amish woman a chance at happiness—but their love will need all their courage to keep . . .

Grace Blauch is skilled at midwifery—and crafting quilts that help others pass on messages of enduring family love. But a disfiguring birthmark keeps the young Amish woman from a husband and home of her own—until Mark King arrives from another community.

His helpfulness and independent nature earn Grace’s respect. And he finds her outspoken ways and determination to do right irresistibly appealing. Soon Grace is planning a wedding quilt of her very own . . . until her father discovers that Mark’s shunned brother is hiding somewhere in town . . .

Grace can well understand why Mark took such a risk once she hears his wrenching reasons. But she fears even prayer will not convince her father to restore his blessing on their union. She wills herself to face the end of her dreams, but sudden danger and an impossible act of generosity will show her that abiding hope can inspire the most precious of miracles . . .

A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance to discover love’s true way home…

Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith’s strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community.

Escape After E.L.E. | JC Morrows


Today I am featuring Escape After E.L.E., the second novel in The Frozen World series, by the amazing JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:



Everything Jude has been taught, tells him that Eve was lost to him when he watched the gates close between them. But he refuses to give up on her–because, if there is anything he knows about the girl he reluctantly fell in love with, it is that she would find a way to survive.

But would she be able to survive long enough. . .

When their search efforts are blocked–even after the relentless storms subside–they begin to realize there is something much more sinister happening in the caves than any of them imagined.

When more friends start disappearing, will they be able to figure out why–in time–or will everyone end up suffering the same fate as Eve. . .

Lost forever to those left behind in the caves. . .

Life After E.L.E. | JC Morrows


Today I am reviewing Life After E.L.E., the 1st novel in The Frozen World series, by JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Extinction Level Event (E.L.E.): An event where all species on the planet can become extinct.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Rule#1: Be inside the gates before sunset.

Eve was born inside the caves. She was taught that rule – and many others – before she could walk. It should be the easiest thing in the world for her to remember.

But life is not always simple.

Life does not always go as planned . . .

When a rogue moon was discovered on a collision course with the Earth, we thought we had a solid plan.

We were wrong. And we were lied to.

Now Eve is in a race against time, discovery and danger around every corner – to find a truth that has been hidden for more than ten years.

A truth her father died to protect her from.


Life After E.L.E. by JC Morrows . . . Will Eve survive? What will happen to those being hunted? Don’t miss this action-packed story!  – Tweet this!


Life After E.L.E. is an amazing story!

Honestly, after watching post-apocalyptic movies like Divergent, Hunger Games, and 2012, I can’t wait to see this series on the big screen!

A rogue moon hits the earth, causing an ice age . . . Morrows does a superb job of creating life in the caves for those who survived. It is especially interesting to read about the many rules they live by. I haven’t decided which would be worse – being hunted by a saber-toothed tiger or locked out of the city by the evil chancellor! I think I’d take my chances with the tiger.

I was delighted to see the progression of Eve’s first love. While it didn’t go nearly as far as the scenes in the above-mentioned series, there are a couple of kisses, but that’s to be expected in real life. Morrows gives the characters a true-to-life relationship, howbeit with an unexpected ending.

I am delighted to share that book two will be released soon! I can’t wait to read the next part of this exciting saga. And yes, I was an early reader, so come back on Wednesday to read my review!

Happy Reading!


God Bless You!
