A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas by Erica Vetsch

A suprisingly good read! I'm not sure what I expected when I started this book but it did not disappoint. The author did a wonderful job of portraying the era. Set in Dodge City, KS at the time of Bat Masterson. I enjoyed the energy and spunk of the main character, Adeline Reid. Throw in a romance and a good mystery and what more could you want? This book also has a wonderful Christian theme. Several characters deal with pasts that seem to haunt them and you get to see all that come to light as they struggle through it. Overall I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!

Ten Plagues by Mary Connealy

What a wonderful book. I loved that it kept you in suspense throughout the entire book. I enjoy a good mystery as well as a good romance and it isn't very often that you get both in one book. The romance flowed smoothly and fit perfectly with the story line. I also liked the fact that it had a strong Christian theme to it. A lot of books who call themselves "Christian" barely mention God but this book does a great job. The characters deal with real life struggles of Faith and past mistakes. The reader gets a chance to see them work through those issue and ultimately stand strong in their faith. Some of the plot is predictable but that didn't matter, it was still a great read!!
