Todays Shadows by Becky Melby

This Book was supplied to me by Barbour Publishing through NetGalley for a review in return.

Book Description

Follow grad student Heather Conrad into a forgotten past as her house-sitting venture goes awry. Last minute changes leave Heather in charge of her former boss’s lakeside Victorian mansion and six-year-old daughter. But the surprises have just begun. Soon startling discoveries convince Heather that something just isn’t right around the house. . When she stumbles on a hidden stairway, the past juts into the present—altering the course of Heather’s own future.

My Review

This book is 3rd book in the Lost Sanctuary Series by Becky Melby.  This is the first book of Becky Melby’s I have ever read and believe you me, it won’t be the last.  She is a GREAT author, she keeps you so interested in the book from the very first page of the book.  I didn’t read the first 2 books of the series, but I didn’t miss them at all.

This book is about Heather Conrad who decides to help out a friend and house sit her new house while Natalie Brooks (Heather’s friend) is away.  Natalie has a daughter, Izzy, who I just absolutely fell in love with.  But when Heather arrives, she didn’t know she would be having Izzy around but she manages.  In the meantime, she meets a security guard, Ryan Tobin.  Then Izzy starts looking around the old house, and she finds a lot of old treasure chests and other historical events surround those trunks or chests.   They also find rooms  and doors and what they find is unbeleiveable.

This book also goes back to the time period of 1912 and tells Maggie Parker’s life story as well.  She is a maid and thinks she is in love with her employer’s son, Richard.  How that unfolds will surprise you, it sure did me. 

I won’t say anything else, I don’t want to spoiI the book for you.  I just loved this book, Becky is one of the best authors ever.  You will not be sorry if you will pick up this book soon and read it.  I couldn’t’ hardly put it down.  Thank you, Becky for giving us all a GREAT story.

Thank you Barbour Publishing, for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give this review.

A Home for Lydia by Vannetta Chapman

This Book was supplied to me by Harvest House Publishers through NetGalley for a review in return.

Book Description

Aaron Troyer simply wants to farm like his father and grandfather before him. But instead he finds himself overseeing the family's small group of guest cabins nestled along the banks of Pebble Creek. That also means he must work with the cabins' housekeeper, Lydia Fisher.

Lydia is the most outspoken Amish woman Aaron has ever met, and she has strong opinions about how the guest cabins are to be run. She also desperately needs this job. Though sparks fly between boss and employee at first, when the cabins are robbed, nothing is more important to Aaron than making sure Lydia is safe.
My Review

This book is the book 2 in the Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman.  I love Vannetta’s books and if you like her as well as I do, you will not be disappointed. 

This book is about Lydia Fisher and Aaron Troyer.  Lydia has worked for Aaron’s uncle for a while trying to maintain the cabins.  When Aaron’s uncle passes away, Aaron Troyer comes to Pebble Creek Wisconsin.  Lydia has issues and so does Aaron when the 2 of them meet.  They both have to get through these issues and they do. 

They both work together and at first, they don’t get along at all, it is almost like they hate each other but really don’t.  How God brings these 2 people together is amazing.  Then Miriam Miller is scared when her mamm gets sick and Miriam is so afraid that her mamm is going to die, but she doesn’t.  The Lord pulls her through.  But what Miriam has to go through, it is only the work of the Lord saying “Trust Me”.  I’ve been there before when I had to put all my trust in him and he whispered “Trust Me”. 

It is such a GREAT book, I know that you will want to read this.  I loved it and thank you Vannetta for giving us all such a GREAT book to read and give a review on. 
I won’t say anything else, I don’t want to spoil the book for you.  I really would suggest this book to read, it is a GREAT one.  I couldn’t’ hardly put it down.  I would definitely suggest this book to my family and friends.  Thank you Vannetta for giving us this story.

Thank you Harvest House, for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give this review.
