Becky Wade's 'True to You' Prize Pack and $100 Giveaway


About the book:

It's the exciting start of a brand-new series by a contemporary romance fan favorite!
After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.
Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. But when he's diagnosed with an inherited condition, he's forced to dig into the secrets of his past and his adoption as an infant, enlisting Nora to help him uncover the identity of his birth mother.
The more time they spend together, the more this pair of opposites suspects they just might be a perfect match. However, John's already dating someone and Nora's not sure she's ready to trade her crushes on fictional heroes for the risks of a real relationship. Finding the answers they're seeking will test the limits of their identity, their faith, and their devotion to one another.

About the author:

Becky Wade is a California native who attended Baylor University, met and married a Texan, and settled in Dallas.  She published historical romances for the general market before putting her career on hold for several years to care for her three children.  When God called her back to writing, Becky knew He meant for her to turn her attention to Christian fiction.  She loves writing funny, modern, and inspirational contemporary romance!  She's the Carol Award, INSPY Award, and Inspirational Reader's Choice Award winning author of My Stubborn Heart, the Porter Family series, and the Bradford Sisters Romance series.







My Thoughts:

at first i thought i wouldn't like it when i got started but once i got a few pages in i really started getting into the story. at the same time its not like the previous novels from her i've read where i was instantly involved with the whole story. so on one hand it was good, on the other it just didn't grab me like previous novels.

i was provided this novel for review free of charge in exchange for my thoughts. i wasn't compensated in any way.

Do opposites really attract? John and Nora might just be the perfect match. Find out in True to You, book one in Becky Wade's new series!

Cynthia Ruchti's 'A Fragile Hope' Blog Tour and Giveaway

Displaying
About the book:
Hope grows when seeds are planted-even in the muddy middle of life.
Josiah Chamberlain's life's work revolves around repairing other people's marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife's unexplained distance, and then threatened further when she's unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog, Josiah finds his expertise, quick wit and clever quips are no match for a relationship that is clearly broken.
Feeling betrayed, confused, and ill-equipped for a crisis this crippling, he reexamines everything he knows about the fragility of hope and the strength of his faith and love. Love seems to have failed him. Will what's left of his faith fail him, too? Or will it be the one thing that holds him together and sears through the impenetrable wall that separates them?

 
About the author:

Cynthia Ruchti tells stories hemmed in hope through her novels, novellas, nonfiction books, articles and devotionals, drawing from 33 years of on-air radio ministry.

Her latest release is the novel A Fragile Hope.
 
One of Ruchti's greatest joys is helping other writers grow in their craft. To that end, she has served as worship and devotions staff and faculty for the Write-to-Publish conference and teaches at other writers' conferences across the country and internationally as opportunities arise. She also serves as the professional relations liaison for American Christian Fiction Writers.
 
Ruchti speaks frequently for women's groups and serves on her church's worship team. She and her husband live in the heart of Wisconsin, not far from their three children and five grandchildren.

My Thoughts: i've liked Cynthia Ruchtis books in the past so i assumed this one would be awesome as the others were. the writing was good and it did keep me interested but i guess maybe i just didn't like where it went or where it was going. granted i finished the entire thing pretty quickly. i just felt like it lacked something in the story and i hated how it ended. that part was unfortunate for me. all in all it was a good read. just not my favorite
i was provided this book in exchange for my review, i wasn't compensated in any way.

When your life's work revolves around repairing other people's marriages, what happens when your own marriage begins to fall apart?

Book info
About the book: 

Don't Go to Bed Angry: Stay Up and Fight(Abingdon Press, June 2016)

A practical handbook on how to fight better---together---for your marriage.

In every marriage, there is conflict. And with every conflict, there is a choice for resolution. Will you ignore the issue until it seemingly goes away? Or will you work together to find peace?

In Don't Go to Bed Angry, Deb and Ron DeArmond give you permission to fight. Conflict isn't the problem, after all; the real issue is how we deal with the conflict. Deb and Ron demonstrate how communication through conflict can safeguard---and even strengthen---your relationship. Immensely practical features including worksheets and discussion questions make this a definitive go-to resource to help you start fighting---together---for your marriage.

About the authors:


Deb DeArmond
 is an author, speaker, and coach with a focus on communication, relationships, and conflict resolution. Her writing explores marriage, parenting, in-law and extended family relationships.

My thoughts: this is one of those books that is one to have around to look upon whenever you need it. Fighting well doesn't  always work so well. So with these tips it really helps out a lot. Would definitely work for newly married couples.
