Softly Blows the Bugle by Jan Drexler

This is the third book in the Amish of Weaver's Creek series. It is a good stand-alone book, but I read the first in the series and recommend doing that.

The main characters in this book are Elizabeth and Aaron. Both are very well developed and believable. The minor characters are also well done and the sub-stories going on make for an interesting, if not mostly predictable read. I did feel that at least one aspect of the story wasn't completely resolved but it was not a major issue.

This is a good, clean book. It is a Christian fiction book genre. 

I received a copy of this book from Revell, the publisher, in exchange for my honest, unbiased review. My review is freely given and fully my own opinion.

I give this book a 3 out of 5-star review and I would recommend it to my friends.

The Shepherd's Wife by Angela Hunt

 This is the second book in the Jerusalem Road series by Angela Hunt. I have enjoyed every book she has written and this is no exception BUT, I was a bit disappointed in this one. It was a very slow start for me and I almost gave up. I'm glad I didn't as it turned out to be a good book. It was written from the viewpoint of Jesus' 2 sisters. The narrative switched back and forth between them but not in equal shares. 

The book, of course, is a Christian book and the main theme was forgiveness. The shepherd's wife is one of the sisters and the book is mostly from her view. The rest of the family is involved, but only as supporting characters.

The plot didn't seem to be as important and the theme and I guess that was one of the things I didn't care for. 

Overall, I did enjoy the book once I got past the first chapter or so. It is not my favorite, but I did enjoy it. I think anyone that enjoys Biblical fiction will enjoy this book also. I give it a 3 out of 5 star rating.

Point of Danger by Irene Hannon

 I requested to read and review this book through Revell Reads. I am thankful to be chosen and this review is totally my own opinion and freely given.

I have read one other book by Irene Hannon in a very genre. So much so, that I thought it was a new author. This book is just as good as the other book and I am happy to have read it. This book is a suspense/mystery genre and is very well written. The characters are all believable and the story flows well. I was hooked from the very beginning. There are a lot of twists and turns and it keeps you guessing as to "who done it". 

The only editing errors I really noticed was the misuse of the word I instead of me. Otherwise, the editing was very well done. This is important to me as a poorly edited book can ruin a very good story.

I give this a 4 out of 5 star rating and would recommend this book to my friends.
