    Jill Marie Landis is a very talented author. Her writing style is unique and you feel as though you are part of the setting. The characters in this story soon become real and the personalities are depicted vividly. This is the first book that I have read by Jill Marie Landis and I purchased two others but found that the language and sexual descriptions were a little explicit for my taste. This was disapointing because I feel like her talent is so wonderful but I am afraid to invest in other books that may have content that makes me uncomfortable.

    Charlotte Gleason embarks from England in 1886 with mixed feelings. Although she’s never met her fiancé, she's headed for New York to marry one of America’s wealthiest heirs. Filled with doubts and hoping for a chance at “real life”, she swaps identities with her maid Dora. For Dora, it’s the chance of a lifetime. But for Charlotte, what begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl becomes a test of survival beyond her darkest dreams.

    MASQUERADE had a great story line with a wonderful spiritual message. It was very unusual and not so predictable. Nancy Moser does keep your interest with her writing style and story line. I plan to purchase more of her books. I also want to coment on what a terrific narrator Barbara Caruso is. I love her voice it has so much expression. I have heard her read many times and always look forward to listening to books that she narrates. Most inspirational fiction listeners will be entertained every minute of this fine book.

    Overall

    Predator was a fast moving and well written book. Terri Blackstock has manage to write about a serious subject using a fictional story with life like characters. I was absolutely captavitated by this audio book. I found it to be entertaining and yet educational. I will be purchasing several copies of Predator to give to my daughter and her friends. This is a book that every teenager and young adult should read. I really appreciated the comments that Terri Blackstock wrote at the end and the scriptures that she referenced. Admittedly I found myself tearfully asking the LORD to forgive me for whinning. I plan to purchase more of Terri Blackstock's audio books. Thank you Terri Blackstock !

    The tender tale of a woman without choices who risks everything for one last chance at happiness. "Rancher Seeking Wife" - for Kate Whittington, the modest words in a newspaper ad are the answer to her desperate prayers. Daughter of a dockside harlot and raised in a bleak orphanage, she has no prospects in the unforgiving Maine village of her birth. Correspondence from the lonely Texas widower looking for a mail order bride sparks tempting dreams of a house, a family and a future in a land filled with possibilities.

    Jill Marie Landis is a wonderful author and her story line is so unique. I read a couple of her other books prior to this one and loved them. Unfortunately, as much as I loved the story and the author's writting style I was disapointed in the use of bad language and I felt the description of intimate acts were too explicit. As a christian I felt uncomfortable at certain times and therefore I will not purchase or listen to her other books. I am certain with her talent this author could provide more inspirational stories without the use of offensive details. I would have given this book five stars except for this. I am so disapointed.

    Energetic young pastor Paul Hudson rejuvenates a dying church and boosts attendance so high that a new building must be constructed. But in his eagerness to please the new devotees, Paul loses touch with what truly matters.

    Overall

    What a wonderful story. It made me evaluate some things I have expirenced in my life. It had spiritual depth and the situations and characters relate to real life priorities and consequences of wrong or right choices. I really think it is one of my favorites. Francine Rivers is a very talented author.

    Determined to tame her younger brother's rebellious streak, McKenna Ashford accepts her cousin's invitation to move west and to begin again. But she quickly discovers that life in Copper Creek, Colorado is far from what she expected. Shouldering burdens beyond her years, McKenna tries to be the parent Robert needs, instead of the older sister he resents. But an "untimely inheritance" challenges her resolve at every turn, while also offering a second chance to restore her trust--and perhaps even her heart.
