5 stars—”A fascinating historical tale”

“This is an interesting medieval romance that uses a late twelfth century setting to tell a tale that in many ways feels contemporary with a sleuthing warrior and a woman hiding from her husband. The story line is fast-paced, but obviously driven by the relationship between the lead couple as he suspects her of thieving and and lying while she prays he proves her love for him is right by protecting Ewan. Catherine Kean writes a fascinating historical tale.”

Getting Rid of Rosie Getting Rid of Rosie
by Lynda Simmons
Enjoyable lighthearted paranormal romance

Seven years ago in Toronto, Samantha Marcello loved her fiancé Michael Hughes. However, he ran off and married her best friend Rosie Fisk. Sam turned to her business the Silver Swan pub for solace, which in her mind and heart apparently worked. 

Now a widower Michael is back in town and wants Sam back in his life. However, Rosie may be dead, but she also has returned; she will do anything to keep Michael and Sam apart. Both haunt Sam as Rosie makes it clear from the grave that she still does not want her ex BFF with her husband even as Michael pleads for a second chance. However, neither of them haunts Sam as much as Michael's compassionate power tool using brother Derek does.

Sort of combining the TV show Cheers with the movie Over Her Dead Body, GETTING RID OF ROSIE is an enjoyable lighthearted paranormal romance that brings to life Toronto from a living and dead perspective. Although the story line is thin, the eccentric support cast adds to the zany comedy; however it is a couple of delightful refreshing twists that make for a fun read.

Love this book!!!

Getting rid of Rosie is a great read! I couldn't put it down. Needless to say chores got put aside as I rushed to find out what happened, then was sad that I'd finished the book. I wanted more. Great job goes out to Lynda Simmons. I laughed, I cried and thoroughly enjoyed the humor, the outstanding dialogue and exciting story lines. I loved all the colorful characters. This is a must read book. I highly recommend it.

Hearts in Harmony Hearts in Harmony
by Gail Sattler

A very touching story. Characters definitely do not have perfect pasts, but I like the way they overcome. I look forward to the next books in this series. Here is the back cover review. I find this helps me to choose a book much better.
Playing guitar for his church's worship team was not going as well as Adrian Braithwaite expected. Which was why he was thrilled to find a talented keyboardist in new church member Celest Hackett. But there was more to the lovely Celeste than met the eye--the skill that Adrian so valued came from her former career in a rock band. And though the pastor welcomed her, a threat from Celeste's past could destroy what she'd worked so hard to build, unless her musical partner could become her partner for life.

Hearts in Harmony Hearts in Harmony

C.Jackson

I really enjoyed reading this book and I found the characters to be especially inspiring. Adrian is a handsome single accountant who plays for his church's praise team and Celeste is a new Christian with a dark past. They meet when Celeste's car breaks down and form a friendship that blossoms into something more when Celeste joins the praise team. Her past eventually comes back to harm her, however, and stands in the way of this blossoming relationship. Eventually both of them must come to turns with her past, in order to not miss out on the chance of love.

Other than this romance, the book's spiritual message is really compelling and beautiful. It speaks to the reader about God's forgiveness and His unconditional love - and how our pasts do not determine our future.

I left off a star because at times the book got frustrating with Celeste's doubts and the long-awaited details about her past. I also got the overwhelming feeling as I read that, even for an inspirational romance, it all seemed too perfect - but I did accept that many romances play out that way, so it was worth it in the end.

Hearts in Harmony Hearts in Harmony
by Gail Sattler

I've read at least a hundred Love Inspireds and this is one of the best. It has great character conflict, honesty, deep emotion, great chemistry between characters. It shows how unconditional love can restore trust. It's an all around excellent book and interesting from the first page because the characters feel like real people. The characters do the appropriate thing in seeking council from the pastor when needed. This issue of the past was referred to but not belabored to the point you want to scream, "Enough Already!" It didn't sound hokey and I was glad to read about a character with a less than stellar background. As a new Christian, she is realistically portrayed in regards to internal conflict. I especially liked the fact that she wanted what was best for the hero, even if it wasn't her. I also loved the fact that the hero saw her a truly forgiven, just like his friends had, rather than punishing her for something she had done before she was saved. A truly inspirational message. I sighed at the end because the love was so intense and real. And the kiss...that made the story worth reading. This is truly one of the page-turners that you'll want to backorder since it's a May 2005 date on the cover.

The Narrow Path The Narrow Path
by Gail Sattler

Well, I've read quite a few of Gail's books, including "Vancouver" (my most favorite city in the world!) and loved them; however, "The Narrow Path" had a different flavor. I have also read a lot of the Amish books out there, but I must say that this Mennonite Brethern story had a unique twist, that being, tradition meet contempory/progressive, all within the same denomination. A bit tricky, I must say, all that Gail pulled off in this book! Rather than tell the plot, I think I can summarize what made this a successful story that also had a very happy ending: Gail's two main characters both had a very deep and mature relationship with the Lord and passionate desire to bring others to the Lord and also keep the existing "flock" strong in their walk. Just how they went about this is where the sparks do fly and Gail's funny bone stars in so many scenes--laugh-out-loud stuff, I am talking about! I started out rolling my eyes at stuffy-stick-in-the-mud-Ted, never dreaming I'd end up being........OOPS! I said I'd not tell the plot-almost spilled the beans, didn't I?!
It didn't hurt any that the book takes place in my beautiful state of Minnesota!
A good, fun read that is perfect to take to the beach, but for sure has a truth to be learned.

the Narrow Path Review
Gail has the gift in, The Narrow Path, as in her other books, of keeping things exciting all the way. It is hard to lay down wondering what will happen next. My husband Glenn also found it very good reading. We were both raised in the Mennonite Church back in the 40's and 50's and can relate to much of it. It is a very good lesson on opposites working together as long as their desire is to serve the Lord.

Wonderful Book
Just finished reading "The Narrow Path"!! What a great book! Living in a mostly Mennonite community with several churches within a few miles, I can identify with some of the things in the book, especially the food! The ladies around here really know how to cook!!! Will there be more of the same type of books in the future?
