Value Fiction Blog Tour:



This time, we got a grab bag… So until they showed up at my door, I was not aware of what i would be reading.

The first book I read was Beneath a Southern Sky by Deborah Raney. I had never read any of her books.

Book Cover Beneath the sky

It was a bit hard for me to get into this book at the beginning of it. Then it started to get more interesting for me. I really like the characters in this book. It is really about how to move on with your life after losing part of yourself.

About this book:

Her Second Husband Healed the Sorrow of a Tragic Loss.
Her First Has Just Returned from the Dead.
Which Man Has the Right to Claim Daria’s Heart?

After two years of serving as a missionary in a remote area of South America, Daria Camfield has returned to the States to mourn her husband, reportedly killed while providing medical aid to a neighboring Colombian village.

At first, Daria finds comfort only in the daughter born to her after Nate’s tragic death. As she begins to heal, she also finds a listening ear and a tender heart in her new boss, veterinarian Colson Hunter. Determined to move forward with life, Daria ignores the still small voice calling her to wait and accepts Cole’s marriage proposal. But after the wedding, Daria’s new dream life turns into a nightmare with the arrival of an unbelievable telegram: “Nathan Camfield found alive. Flying into K.C. Int’l. via Bogota…”

Now two men have the right to her daughter, her life, and her love. Will Daria return to her beloved first husband, abandoning Cole? Or will she reject Nate and choose the only man her daughter has ever called “Daddy”--a man she has come to cherish with all her heart?

The second book I got was Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn. I had never read any of her books either. I am always excited to read a new author though, cause you never know what kind of possibilities it will open up for you.

Book Cover Secrets

I was able to get into this book a bit quicker.. and I really enjoyed the storyline. I think this was my favorite of the two.

About the book:
