The Number of Love Book Review

Set in 1917 Europe, The Number of Love  by Roseanna M. White tells the story of codebreaker Margot De Wilde and field agent Drake Elton, who operate within England’s intelligence network during World War I. Filled with well-developed heroes and villains, The Number of Love is a well-researched book of espionage, intrigue, and heartbreak. The author skillfully intersects fact with fiction in the telling of Margot and Drake’s story.

Within the pages of this story, readers catch a glimpse of the lives of those who used numbers to break coded German messages, along with those in the field who risked their lives to intercept those messages through the work of Margot and Drake.

Twists and turns run throughout this Christian historical romance to the very end as the author weaves history, romance, and faith throughout the book for a satisfying conclusion.

Far Side of the Sea Book Review

In a war-torn country filled with espionage and spies, who do you believe when placing your trust in the wrong person could cost your life?

This is the question British Intelligence Officer, Lieutenant Colin Mabry, must ask himself after he receives a desperate message from France asking him to come at once because of a promise of love.

Set in1918 Europe during World War I, Far Side of the Sea, by Kate Breslin, tells the story of Colin Mabry and Johanna Reyer, a woman who works in a dovecote for the French Army Intelligence. Together, they search for Johanna’s half sister who one year earlier helped save Colin’s life.

With believable characters and historical facts that lend authenticity to Far Side of the Sea without bogging down the reader, I highly recommend this fast paced book full of unexpected twists and turns is a must read for fans of historical romance laced with wartime suspense. The inclusion of messenger pigeons was a plus for me.

This Treacherous Journey-Book Review

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Can two very different people overcome their past hurts to find love again? That’s the question This Treacherous Journey by Misty M. Beller answers.

Filled with characters to care about and root for This Treacherous Journey tells the story of Emma and her twin, Joseph, as they flee false accusations in Texas, with the hopes of reaching their aunt in Canada before widowed Emma gives birth to her first child.

Not far into their journey they meet a secluded mountain man, Simeon, and persuade him to guide them through the Rockies to their destination.

Along their journey filled with peril and danger, Emma and Simeon discover the painful secrets of each other’s past, and develop a relationship built on trust and sacrifice.

The thread of God’s love and constant presence is woven through This Treacherous Journey from beginning to end; not tacked on at the end as an afterthought as is true with some books I’ve read.

If you enjoy historical romance set in the 1800s, This Treacherous Journey may just be the book for you.

For the Record Book Review

for-the-record book reviewby Sandy Kirby Quandt

For the Record is Regina Jennings’ latest Christian Historical Romance set in Pine Gap, Missouri in 1885. Although is it the third book in her Ozark Mountain Romance series, you don’t need to read the first two books before you read this one. I didn’t.

Betsy Huckabee is a nosy small town reporter in Pine Gap, Missouri with dreams of becoming self-sufficient by writing for big name city newspapers, instead of working at her uncle’s local paper. When Deputy Joel Puckett leaves Texas, due to false accusations, and is sent by the state of Missouri to straighten out the problems in Pine Gap, he runs up against a retiring sheriff who resents Joel taking over his job, a group of masked vigilantes who are sworn to delivering their own brand of justice in the town, and Betsy who is determined to follow the Deputy so she can fictionalize his actions with hopes of selling them in a serial for ladies in the Kansas City paper.

The sensationalized story of the Dashing Deputy has repercussions Betsy didn’t foresee, and Joel didn’t want, leaving a tangled mess to sort out as Joel, with Betsy’s help, struggles to uphold the law among the masked Hob Knobbers of Pine Gap.
