"The Imposter" by Suzanne Woods Foster Book Tour and Kindle Fire Give Away

Book Info 
A heart once deceived should not be easily fooled again . . .
Katrina Stoltzfus thought she had life and love all figured out: she was going to marry John and live happily ever after. But as her plans crumble before her eyes, she struggles to face an uncertain future. When a widow asks for help starting a new business, Katrina quickly agrees. She needs time to heal her broken heart, to untangle her messy life, to find a purpose.
What she doesn’t need is attention from Andy Miller, a farmhand who arrives at the widow’s farm just when help is most needed–and who always seems to say the right thing and be in the right place, at the right time. Is Andy for real or too good to be true? She’s been deceived once before, and she isn’t planning on experiencing it again.

Guest  Post from Suzanne Woods Fisher
If you think you have a pretty clear idea of what an Amish bishop is like—stern, authoritative, patriarchal?—have another think. David Stoltzfus in The Imposter is warm, kindhearted, a reluctant farmer, and quite attractive!
Sound like an unlikely character for an Amish novel? Maybe so, but David Stoltzfus is modeled after a bishop I met, years ago. This real-life bishop might be the most intelligent, thoughtful, spiritually sensitive, and well-read man I’ve ever met. We spent a morning talking Bonhoeffer in his Spartan living room, warmed by his woodstove.
I wanted to present the character of a bishop that best represented this man I’d grown to admire. So when it was time to create a proposal for a new series, I suggested ‘The Bishop’s Family,’ starring David Stoltzfus who was loosely based on this particular bishop.
Very loosely.
David Stoltzfus is a handsome, widowed father of six who runs a local bulk food store. His children are surprisingly nonconforming, outspoken, and fiercely protective of their clan. The real-life bishop is a farmer, happily married with four independently minded children, and looks…well, to be candid, he looks a little like Benjamin Franklin.
But here’s what they have in common: they both love to read, they love their families, and they love the work God has given them of tending a flock.
The Imposter begins as David Stoltzfus moves his family to Stoney Ridge for a fresh start, a new beginning. Things don’t start off well: his eldest daughter, Katrina, faces a crushing disappointment, his prodigal son Jesse has a bent for troublemaking, and then David realizes something fishy is going on in the little church.
A new life awaits the Stoltzfus family, but not the one they expected. Or wanted. But they are needed in Stoney Ridge, each one of them. Even Jesse. J
I hope you’ll feel as though you’ve made some new friends as you get to know David and his children. One thing I can promise: this bishop’s family will surprise you.
Happy Reading!
Warmly, Suzanne

My Review: 
My first thought after reading "The Imposter" is I am never going to be able to write a review that is going to really say what I think about this book so I will just say "It is wunderbaar," which means wonderful in Amish terms. 
"The Imposter" by Suzanne Woods Fisher is the first book of the series ( The Bishop's Family ). I cannot wait to read the second book "The Quieting". There is an excerpt from "The Quieting" at the end of "The Imposter" but no I didn't read this excerpt because it would make the waiting so much more harder. 

"The Imposter" is an Amish novel but I believed any reader of Christian fiction would enjoy it and learn new insights on the Christian life or at the very least hear truths they might have forgotten. That is why I read and I imagined that is why most readers read as well as to be entertained. 

"The Imposter"is a novel filled with most things that aren't in the average Amish novel, though that is changing along with everything else in the world but God's love, like a pregnancy out of wedlock and gambling and betrayal. All these things make the novel believable.If you read the "Stoney Ridge Seasons " series by Suzanne Woods Fisher you will recognize some of the characters from that series in "The Imposter" but you didn't have to nor do you need to read that series to get the full story from "The Imposter" as '" The Bishop's Family" series is a completely new series, it just takes place in Stoney Ridge.

Here are a few quotes that are from the book 1."But love can't find a way when hate has a hold on your heart." 2. "One thing I've learned in life, we're all just a few choices away from becoming just about any kind of person. Good or bad."  
3 . "But I've learned that there's far more to the Christian life than getting it right. There's living it right. Living it means working through the ordinary stuff." 4. "Why is it that here, coming to church,is where I feel such shame?" "Maybe that's what's supposed to happen," Andy said thoughtfully. "A few weeks ago your father said that part of coming to worship is to bring our shame to the altar." 

I hope I have persuaded you to read "The Imposter" by Suzanne Woods Fisher and if you aren't already a fan of Amish genre, this book just might turn that around! Suzanne Woods Fisher is a great author to try if you are looking for a new to you author and what is a better way to try a new author than with a new series.

I am giving "The Imposter" five star (I am sure you already knew that right).

I was given a copy of the book by Celebrate Lit and the author for an honest review. I was not required to give a favorable review, these opinions are mine

"The Prophetess: Deborah's Story" (Daughters of the Promised Land Book 2 ) by Jill Eileen Smith

Book Info: Outspoken and fearless, Deborah has faith in God but struggles to see the potential her own life holds. As an Israelite woman, she'll marry, have a family, and seek to teach her children about Adonai--and those tasks seem to be more than enough to occupy her time. But God has another plan for her. Israel has been under the near constant terror of Canaan's armies for twenty years, and now God has called Deborah to deliver her people from this oppression. Will her family understand? Will her people even believe God's calling on her life? And can the menace of Canaan be stopped?

With her trademark impeccable research and her imaginative storytelling, Jill Eileen Smith brings to life the story of Israel's most powerful woman in a novel that is both intriguing and inspiring.

Author Info: Jill Eileen Smith is the author of Desert Princess (ebook short) #1 Loves of King Solomon series, the Wives of the Patriarchs series, the upcoming Daughters of the Promised Land series, and the bestselling author of the Wives of King David series. When she isn't writing, she can often be found reading, biking, traveling, spending time with friends, or snugging her feline writing buddy Tiger. She especially enjoys spending time with her family. 
To learn more about Jill or for more information about her books, visit her website at You can also contact Jill at She loves hearing from her readers.

My Review:"The Prophetess: Deborah's Story" (Daughters of the Promised Land Book 2 ) by Jill Eileen Smith is a perfect example of why I read Biblical Christian. This book and every one of them ( I have all of her books but 2 and they are the Ebook Shorts "The Loves of King Solomon" and they are on my to be read list") have made the people of the Bible more real to me. 

"The Prophetess: Deborah's Story" (Daughters of the Promised Land Book 2 ) by Jill Eileen Smith is about Deborah ( the prophetess and judge in Judges 4 and 5 of the Bible. Through little is told in the Bible about Deborah, Jill Eileen Smith has written a true page turning novel beginning with when Deborah was a teenager and before she was a prophetess. 

This story is true to the Biblical account but of course since it is fictional as well,it has other characters that isn't in the true account. I really appreciate that the author has made Deborah a woman that has fears and she has doubts like we all do.  In this novel Deborah is a wife and mother as well as  woman of God. 

This novel doesn't read like the other novels written by Jill Eileen Smith but I think that is because of the subject matter, war and terrorism, a subject that isn't my cup of tea, but I am glad I read the book and I can honestly say Jill Eileen Smith has done it again! 

I am anxiously awaiting the next book by Jill Eileen Smith. I am giving "The Prophetess: Deborah's Story" (Daughters of the Promised Land Book 2 ) by Jill Eileen Smith five stars!

"Playing The Part" by Jen Turano Book Tour And A GiveAway

Book: Playing the Part
Author: Jen Turano
Genre: Christian Historical Fiction
Lucetta Plum is an actress on the rise in New York City, but is forced to abandon her starring role when a fan’s interest turns threatening. Lucinda’s widowed friend, Abigail Hart, is delighted at the opportunity to meddle in Lucetta’s life and promptly whisks her away to her grandson’s estate to hide out.
Bram Haverstein may appear to simply be a somewhat eccentric gentleman of means, but a mysterious career and a secret fascination with a certain actress mean there’s much more to him than society knows.
Lucetta, who has no interest in Abigail’s matchmaking machinations, has the best intentions of remaining cordial but coolly distant to Bram. But when she can’t ignore the strange and mysterious things going on in his house, it’ll take more than good intentions to keep her from trying to discover who Bram is behind the part he plays.

Her books may be found in most fine bookstores, or follow the Baker House Publishing link to find additional places to purchase her work.
My Review: 
"Playing The Part" by Jen Turano is the third book in the (A Class of Their Own) series. "Playing The Part" was a joy to read!

It can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the other two first because It mentions characters from the other two and I think it enriched the story knowing how the characters all related to this story. But it is still a complete story if you don't read the other two.

This story has a little comedy and mystery and yes there is violence, but the violence isn't in great detail.

"Playing The Part" even has some Spiritual truths written within it's pages. I am including one of those truths in this review, "he believes God puts people on certain paths. And when you cross paths with a person who is in need, and you have the solution to that need, well, God expects you to put that solution to use."

While reading "Playing The Part" I could actually see the scenes happening.

I loved the ending but it left me wanting more books in this series.

I have to be honest and say that even though I liked this book and I am giving it five stars, a few times I though this is a little too much repeating of the same action (like shooting the cannons).

This story has a character that is a mysterious author, and dysfunctional families and a matchmaker.

The title really fits the story because the main character Lucetta Plum is an actor and must perform her best to save her life.

I was given a copy of "Playing The Part" by the author and Celebrate Lit for an honest review. These opinions are my own.

My Review:"Dancing Up A Storm": 9 Christian Short Stories is a collection on nine short stories that are about dancing. I really enjoyed reading these stories.  I hope this isn't a spoiler alert but all the stories end on a happy note, yes the pun is intended. At first some of the stories don't seem to be happy stories at all but I really encourage you to keep reading.

There was one story "Night Dance" that I am not sure should have been included in a Christian collection, I say this because it was about elves and gnomes. But it was a good story. The other eight stories all quoted Scripture and mentioned the Bible.

This is a collection of different genres, so I am sure everyone could find one or more of the nine stories to enjoy.

The one I could most identify with is the "Teething Troubles". Teething Troubles is something that all of us experience in one way or another. To find out what I say that read "Dancing Up A Storm"

I am giving "Dancing Up A Storm" five stars and I was given a arc pdf file by the publisher Chalfont House for my honest review. These opinions are mine own.

"The Steeplechase" by Carrie Fancett Pagels with Character Interview and Review and A GiveAway

Genre: Historical, Romance, Christian 
Book Description :Martha Osborne fears for her six-year-old brother, who was shuffled off to boarding school when his British mother departed to England. 
Set in Hampton Roads, Virginia, in the build-up to the War of 1812, expert rider Martha plans to substitute for her older brother in a “race to the steeple” to win the prize—and a bet with Phillip Paulson, equestrian trainer at Yorkview Academy, to help have her little brother returned home. When Phillip stumbles upon the real reasons behind the secret race he finds he may not be able to keep his end of the bargain. Can he save Martha and her brother? And will his heart be lost in the process? 

Author Bio: Carrie Fancett Pagels is a multi-published award-winning author of
Christian historical romance.  Twenty-five years as a psychologist didn't "cure" her overactive imagination! She resides with her family in the Historic Triangle of Virginia, which is perfect for her love of history. Carrie loves to read, bake, bead, and travel – but not all at the same time!

Carrie Fancett Pagels, the author, interviews Phillip Lucien Paulson, hero of The Steeplechase, a book where “Early American meets Regency!” 

CFP: Phillip, you seem to be a confirmed bachelor.
“No madam, I am a confirmed bachelor, there is no “seem” about it, I fear!”

CFP: Why is that?
As the second son on the Paulson Estate, let us say that the young ladies of Tidewater found my older brother much more alluring.
CFP: (Interviewer coughs and blushes.) I find it hard to imagine a more handsome young man than you, Mr. Paulson.
“Why thank you. Please call me Phillip. Still, having had my heart stomped upon by a young woman who intended only to catch my brother has left me feeling quite justified in remaining a bachelor.”
CFP: I see. But there is a young lady I see you visiting when I go to Williamsburg.
“Ah, yes, Miss Osborne. She’s all goodness and light, is she not?”
CFP: Um, I think I’ll take the Fifth on that.
“The fifth? Is this some strange treatment using whiskey?”
CFP: No, no, excuse me, I merely meant that Martha Osborne isn’t exactly an angel.
(Phillip laughs.) “Yet she believes me to be angelic, which I have found rather sweet and amusing.”
CFP: Did you worry that she might be a little unbalanced, with this assertion of hers?
“No, I believe she’s a deeply religious young woman whose emotional distress caused her to overlook my very obviously unangelic behavior.”
CFP: Such as?
“I seriously doubt angels admire young ladies as I did when I met her in the bakery shop. But perhaps she didn’t notice. I’m sure that when I assaulted that rogue in her father’s chapel, that she clearly understood I was a man – and a very angry one!”
CFP: Johnny Osborne, Martha’s little brother, is one of the youngest students at the academy where you help with equestrian training. Is he a good rider?
“He’s a fair rider but much too young to be sent off to boarding school.”
CFP: Do you know why the academy accepted young Johnny then?
(He clears his throat.) “Yes, madam, but I am not at liberty to say why.”
CFP: But Miss Osbourne told me you were in agreement that he should be sent home to Williamsburg from Yorktown.
“Yes, it is true I agreed with her and even agreed to a challenge. However, I have certain reliable information that now calls that judgement into question.”
CFP: Hmmm. 
“I believe that shall be her reaction as well, upon learning of my change of heart.”
CFP: Your mother is French. Has that influenced you?
Certainement. I’ve certainly been taught that every country, every culture, has it differences and its own ways of looking at things. And my mother had a difficult past in France that has affected my upbringing. I’ve been taught to be very appreciative of the freedoms I have as an American.”
CFP: Your father was an American patriot and served during the Revolutionary War. How has this impacted you?
(Long silence, scratches chin, looks around the room.) “When my father speaks, it is with a gravity, a certainty, of what is right. He does not waste time in idle chatter. So when I see him continuing to meet with his old comrades from war, I have been, of course, concerned.”
CFP: I see. This sounds serious.
“I assure you, madam, that with the prominent planters and elder statesmen of the Tidewater gathering together to consider the abduction of our young men by the British navy, it is indeed a serious concern.”
CFP: Is that why so many of our young Tidewater gentlemen (and a certain young gentlewoman!) plan to practice their equestrian skills in the race to the steeple at Grace Episcopal Church?
(Phillips makes a motion as though he is taking a key and locking his lips.)
CFP: Well, I thank you, Phillip, for taking time with us today.
(He rises, bows low, takes my hand and kisses it. If it weren’t for my husband nearby I might feel a little giddy!) “The pleasure is all mine, madam. Give my felicitations to all of your readers.”
My Review: "The SteepleChase" by Carrie Fancett Pagels is a simple novella of a time when the people in America was worried that Britain wanted control again. But is also a romance. This story has many plots between the pages, the most being a little six year old being sent to a boarding school because( almost a fairytale content, to me) a wicked stepmother and a father who is more interested in his own affairs.
This book has a few tense moments and I wasn't sure what the outcome would be. I really liked this novella but to be fair to my review readers I have to warn that there is a scene where a gun could have done damage to a person, ( I know some readers don't like to read this,) but to be fair, real life must be included into the books we read especially if we are reading Historical Fiction. 
I am giving "The Steepchase" by Carrie Fancett Pagels 5 stars. 
There is a little mystery left in the novella at the end because I am left hanging on what happened to the stepmother although to be fair that plot line is secondary to the race to bringing the child home from the boarding school. I wonder if maybe a sequel is in the future ?
I will be reading more of Carrie Fancett Pagels stories because each of her stories that I have read has drawn me into the pages and made me believe I am actually watching the scenes unfold as I turn the pages.

"Promise Lodge" by Charlotte Hubbard Book Tour and a $15.00 Gift Card Giveaway

Book Description: 
It's a better life, a fresh start--and a heaven-sent second chance. Founded by three Amish sisters determined to put misfortune behind them, Promise Lodge is a colony where faith's abiding promise can be fulfilled--and love can make all things new…

Energetic widow Mattie Bender Schwartz is working day and night to get Promise Lodge going. She's also hoping the change will help her son Noah's heart to heal after his broken engagement. But his former fiancĂ©e, Deborah, is looking for a fresh start too. Filled with regret, and cast out by her dat for a reason she can't yet reveal, Deborah can only pray Noah will forgive her foolishness. 

Deborah is the last person Noah expected to show up at Promise Lodge. But with her cruel words still ringing in his head, he's reluctant to accept her apology--even if the Old Order ways demand he try. If only he could obey Christ's most important commandment: love one another. But one thing is certain--his mother and aunts, and their beloved Preacher Amos, will do their best to help him get there. 

Author Info:
Charlotte Hubbard sold her first historical romance in 1990, and she's been a slave to her overactive imagination ever since. As she writes, her stories invariably take on a life of their own, different from the way she proposed them: unforeseen characters and plot twists come along, and they keep her guessing right along with her readers!

Charlotte has lived in the Midwest most of her life. When she's not writing, she loves touring historic homes, trying new recipes, crocheting, and playing with her Border Collie, Ramona. She's a Presbyterian deacon, sings in her church choir, and plays in the percussion ensemble. She's married to a fine man who--bless him--has never once suggested she get a real job!

EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt):

“So am I right, thinking none of your women are married?” Truman asked as they headed away from Rainbow Lake, back toward the house. “Not trying to be nosy, understand. But a man likes to know these things before his mind wanders too far down the wrong road.”

Amos laughed, clapping Truman on the back. “You’ve figured us out, Truman. We could just as well call this the Promise Lodge Singles Colony—not that Christine or Mattie or I planned on losing our spouses so early in our lives.”

Truman’s expression sobered. “You’ve all seen your share of heartaches, then. I didn’t mean to make light of your situations. Please accept my apology and condolences.”

“Accepted,” the preacher said. “But I’ll tell you right off that I came here partly because Mattie and I were childhood sweethearts before we married other folks.”

Noah rolled his eyes at the way Amos was staking his claim on Mamm.

My Review: 
“Promise Lodge” is the first book in a new series by Charlotte Hubbard. I thought this book was as good as the books in the (Seasons of the Heart) seasons.

This isn't your normal Amish story as it deals with abuse ( an husband repeatedly hits and injures his wife and the bishop is okay with this).  The women in this story are unlike the other Amish women I have read about in other Amish novels, these women are independent and don't behave like the bishop believes like they should. Oh, I should also add that they are not wild or abandon their faith, they just feel that women should be treated as equals. (didn't want to give readers the idea that this wasn't a clean read). There is an father in this story that I would like to give a real talking to and say " how can you do this to your daughter, put your faith in her not in that bishop. And, talking about that bishop, why does he allowed his son to do the things that he does without consequences? 

This story is about new beginnings and how three Amish sisters are determined to put misfortune behind them. Promise Lodge is a colony where faith's abiding promise can be fulfilled--and love can make all things new.

These three sisters are unhappy about the things happening in the town of Coldstream and decided to buy an abandoned camp ground for a new beginning. Can they make it work and help the ones they hope come to their settlement.

Oh there are plenty of tense moments as well as tender moments in this novel. This is a story of new beginnings and old and new love.  

I can't wait till the next story in this series is released.

I was given a copy of "Promise Lodge" for my honest review by the author. These opinions are mine own!
