Reviews by Molly - Molly Edwards

I absolutely LOVED this entire collection. While it’s a collection of 4 books in 1, the stories were extremely well written and highly captivating, so this was a fast paced read. I would turn each page to each story, and find myself thrown into a completely new twist or turn and there were times I thought I things figured out and then one of the authors would hit me with a new puzzle piece, and I’d have to start the guessing game all over again. That was awesome!

I definitely recommend this 4-in-1 novella collection by some fantastic Christian authors. It’s a high 5 Book worthy, two thumbs up collection that will keep you guessing, and leave you feeling like you’ve made some fantastic new friends! These authors are talented and their work is sure to be on my future reading list now!

    Great book!!!

    I was really impressed with this book. There are four stories, but they are intertwined to some extent. It was nice to not have the characters be done at the end of each story, but continue to see how their "life" progressed through time in each successive story. I like how the suspense was done well, adding great historical detail. Each author did a great job of making each story interesting and moving along. No story was dull. (Yes, it helped that they were novellas within the book, but even then some stories can drag.) They did a great job of keeping the action going and holding my interest. Thanks to the authors for writing some great stories!! I look forward to reading more by each one!!!!

    quick read *no spoilers*

    This 4 in 1 novel is a VERY fast read! The stories flow from one to the next, so you don't feel as if once a couple's story is told that they're just gone. The faith message is strong throughout the novel, but not TOO strong and the romances are realistic but not vulgar.

    I will definitely be checking out these authours in the future!

    i was provided a free digital copy from barbour books in exchange for an honest review.

    Twists and turns and AWESOMETASTIC mystery!

    I absolutely LOVED this entire collection. While it's a collection of 4 books in 1, the stories were extremely well written and highly captivating, so this was a fast paced read. I would turn each page to each story, and find myself thrown into a completely new twist or turn and there were times I thought I things figured out and then one of the authors would hit me with a new puzzle piece, and I'd have to start the guessing game all over again. That was awesome! But, today, I'll focus on one story....<em>Buried Deception </em>by Gina Conroy. This story was a novella that really gripped me. I was tossed around with the amazingly created characters and I never knew where I would land. As a single mom, I could relate to the struggles that Samantha had for wanting to be independent and care for her children. BUT, at the same time, hunk ex-cop Nick has trust issues. I totally can relate to him, too. Watching Nick and Samantha try to find the clues to the missing artifact while trying to keep their lives, was intense. So, between Nick and Samantha, I felt every issue, every emotion, every adrenaline rush as if it were my own. I LOVE that in a mystery. Mixed among the mystery is just the right amount of romance between Nick and Samantha, and the perfect amount of inspirational message for relying on God and trusting in Him to lead the way, no matter what situation your in. I definitely recommend this 4-in-1 novella collection by some fantastic Christian authors. It's a high 5 Book worthy, two thumbs up collection that will keep you guessing, and leave you feeling like you've made some fantastic new friends! These authors are talented and their work is sure to be on my future reading list now! This review originated at Reviews By Molly in part with a blog tour.

    Cherry Blosson Capers Cara Putman, Gina Conroy, Frances Devine,

    Cherry Blosson Capers Cara Putman, Gina Conroy, Frances Devine, and
    Lynette Sowell Book Summary: Four women encounter love, danger, and
    mystery beyond their neighborhood near Washington, DC. Tara Whitley,
    assistant chef at the White House, helps FBI agent Jack Courtland unmask
    a state-dinner saboteur. Attorney Ciara Turner and her nemesis Daniel
    Evans investigate a judge’s murder. Archeologist intern Samantha Steele
    almost loses her nerve and children when she and security guard Nick
    Porter investigate a forgery at Mount Vernon. Coffee-shop owner Susan
    Holland and builder Vince Martini encounter danger in her late uncle’s
    mansion. Can these couples trust God with their lives and love as they
    track down killers and culprits? Review: These were page turners. I
    enjoyed the characters and how they intertwined with one another. I
    enjoyed the mysteries along with the relationships between the
    characters. It was like stepping into the world of these women and how
    easy it was to feel like a part of the stories while everything is
    happening so quickly in the start of the stories. I really like the
    first story the best and that really helped to make the others
    enjoyable. I would like to thank Net Galley and Barbour Publishing for
    allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I
    was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
