Jerusalem's Queen by Angela Hunt

I have always enjoyed books by Angela Hunt and this is no exception. She did a wonderful job of portraying this queen.

I asked to read and review this book through Netgalley and was given an advanced reader's ebook to do so. Even though it was not fully edited, There were so few errors, I'm not even sure there were any at all. It was very well done.

The story was well researched and the characters were totally believable. The story flowed well and left me wanting more but not feeling like it was ended too soon.

I recommend this book and give it 5 stars out of 5.

Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews

This is the second book written by Mesu Andrews that I have read. I was not disappointed.

It is a fictionalization of the life of Daniel. The story does not stray from the Bible, but it does add to it and makes it into a very interesting story. Of course, it is a Christian book, but it is not preachy at all. It shows God's love and supremacy in all things.

The main characters were very well developed while the supporting characters were well defined. The story flowed well and kept my interest all the way through.

The book was requested and given through Netgalley. It was an unedited proof. With that being said, the editing was very well done. Very little to improve.

I give this a 5-star rating. The review is my own, freely given.

My Heart Belongs in Gettysburg

I was so wanting to love this book. I enjoy historical novels. For the most part, I liked the story, but it was twice as long as necessary.

The story was well researched with a lot of interesting details about the underground railway, BUT, Clarissa did too much talking to herself. Her reminiscing was like re-reading the book. I did not enjoy this and started to skip a lot of that.

Other than that, the characters were fairly well developed. The story covered a few years of time and sometimes flowed well and at other times seemed to drag.

I give this a 3-star rating because of it being too wordy. I asked to read and review this book through NetGalley.

A Williamsburg Christmas

Once again, Anne Greene has created a great novella. The story is a good, clean read. It is a Christian book, but not pushy or preachy in any way.

The main characters are quite well developed for such a short story. The story flows well and moves along nicely.

There were a couple of editing issues but nothing that interfered with the enjoyment of the book. 

I was given a copy of this book and chose to review it of my own free will. The review is totally my own opinion. I totally would recommend this book to anyone.
