Fireman Dad book review

Title: Fireman Dad
Author: Betsy St. Amant
Series:   love inspired
Chapters: 15 plus Epilogue
Pages: 214
Genre: Romance
Rating:  5 stars 10/10
     The daughter of a fireman and a widow of another Marissa isn’t sure she wants to give love another chance. She wants to raise her son and focus on him. She never thought that one man that she fell for would be a fireman, who becomes her son’s hero. What is a woman to do who’s lost her faith? Will she return to God’s loving arms, and trust His will or will she continue to run?
     I first discovered Betsy St. Amant when I read her book Return to Love. A book about an aquerimen worker who is a penguin keeper; who’s fighting to protect them and gets a second chance at love. The book caught my eye because it had my favorite animal in it penguins. From the first book to Fireman Dad Betsy St.Amant’s books have been wonderful reads. With messages of God’s love and faithfulness woven through the story. Her books combine some of the elements that I love to read about; God, laugther, and love. One of the great things about her romance novels are that they are clean.
     Safe for teens to read, to see “couples” having God at the center of their relationship; even though they go through troubles with God first they can get through everything. Just like in real life God never promised easy just possible.

Review of Beaded Hope

Title: Beaded Hope
Author: Cathy Liggett
Series:   No
Chapters: 46 plus epilogue
Pages: 381
Genre: Christian chick lit/ real life fiction
Rating:  5 Stars 10/10
     Four America women with nothing in common build relationships with South African and each other.  Cassandra is looking for away to advance her career. Heidi a single mom is trying to figure out what to do with her teenage daughter. Katie is a pregnant teenage trying to figure life out. Gabby is looking for an escape, after suffering another miscarriage. These four women will find more than they bargained for in South Africa, and they will ever be the same.
Beaded Hope is an awesome read. Very emotional very seldom do I read a book that makes me cry; however with Beaded Hope I was crying off and on through the whole book. The book though fiction is written about an actual missions trip. The bead for hope is an actual project in which women in South Africa and other African countries learn to make beaded artwork and jewelry in order to support themselves and their families.
Beaded Hope is a wonderful read. I recommend that every one read this book; there is even a readers guide at the back of the book; if you wanted to read it for a book club.
