Since the year is almost half over I thought I would post a mid-year update on my alphabet reading challenge.

So far I’ve read 20 books this year, but I’ve had a lot of repeat first letters so I’ve only completed 8 books towards my alphabet challenge. I guess I’m going to have to start paying more attention to the first letter of the titles for the rest of the books that I read this year. 😉

Sara’s Game by: Ernie Lindsey (Sara Winthrop #1)



Two years ago, Sara’s husband left for the gym one morning…and never came back. His car was found. He wasn’t. Unbelievably, the police report said, “No foul play suspected.” There were a few unreliable sightings over the following months, but little else.

Now, on the last day before summer break, her three children have gone missing from their schools, all at the same time.

And the note under her windshield wiper asks one simple question: Are you ready to play the game? ”


4 Stars

What a ride. This book starts off on the day that Sara’s children are abducted. There’s no messing around with a lot of back-story before you get to the action. This was a fast paced story that kept me up reading late into the night. I will definitely be reading more by this author.

Unlikely Substitute by: Leah Atwood (Mail-Order Husbands #1)



“Once widowed, once duped Anne Marie Meadows has no desire to be married, but she is down to her last option. In order to save her farm, she sends for a mail-order husband.

U.S. Marshal Jude Malstrom is a loner dedicated to his work, but when a dying man asks him to deliver a letter, he reluctantly carries out the task.

When nature unleashes her fury, Jude and Anne Marie find themselves in each other’s company for longer than they wish. Can they see beyond obligation and find an unlikely love?”


3 stars

At only 55 pages long this novella was a really quick read. It was a clean, fun and entertaining story.  I enjoyed it enough that I would definitely be willing to read more by this author.

Unveiled, the first book in my new Raven Daughter series is officially released into the wild in both e-book and paperback!
