#The Shipbuilder’s Wife by Jennifer Moore–Review 4.5 stars–NetGalley

the shipvuilders wife:.jpg 850.jpgDon’t Miss, The Shipbuilder’s Wife, An 1812 War Romance.  Out Now!

 

The Shipbuilder’s Wife is a well-written and compelling novel, taking place during the war of 1812. 

Beautiful southern socialite, Lydia Prescott was planning her wedding when British soldiers attacked her Virginia home. She survived the fiery explosion but not without injury. Lydia’s engagement was broken after her beloved saw the ugly gash on her face. Lydia’s confidence and charming manner evaporated. Depression and isolation became her norm. Lydia’s family should have been her support, but both parents avoided her; spending, as little time, as possible, with their not so perfect daughter.  

When Lydia was told that she was to marry Jacob Steele, the shipbuilder, she was nervous. She had only met him once, and although he wasn’t rude or condescending to her, he was intimidating. However, even though, she was anxious about marrying a stranger, she was glad to be leaving her present unhappy and isolated existence, behind. Lydia would soon find out, though, that being married to Jacob, was not an easy task. Jacob Steele was an aloof, moody, and guarded man. He also has a big heart.

Lydia did her best to strengthen their relationship. But Jacob didn’t trust her. And, Lydia wasn’t so sure that she trusted him either. But, when Jacob started to think that Lydia could be a British spy, their fragile marriage began to crumble.  

The author’s historical descriptions and in-depth character development brought this book alive for me. And, although I liked Jacob and Lydia, and rooted for their relationship, it was Alden, Jacob’s friend, who won my heart. Alden is a charismatic, funny, and lovable character. He’s unique, quirky, and just so much fun. I sincerely hope that Alden gets his own book. I will definitely be looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Thank you, Covenant Communications and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.

#My Dearest Enemy by Jennifer Moore–Review-5 stars #NetGalley

My Dearest Enemy::.jpg 850.jpgDon’t Miss Jennifer Moore’s Newest Historical Fiction Romance–My Dearest Enemy!

 

My Dearest Enemy is a compelling read. Once I started it this novel, I couldn’t put it down. I finished the book in one day. 

The year was 1812, and the Americans were in Canada, fighting Great Britain. Abigail Tidwell was tired of living alone, freezing, and shouldering the chores by herself. She was outside gathering wood, when she noticed, the barn door ajar. Upon investigation Abigail found, an American officer, unconscious, bleeding, and suffering from an arrowhead to his side, and a knife wound to his arm.

When Captain Prescott demanded that Abigail leave her home and follow him, she felt betrayed. She had nursed the American officer back to health; and, this is how he thanks her? But when Abigail discovered, that it was her doctoring skills that were needed, Abigail left without complaint. The longer Abigail spent time with Captain Emmett Prescott, the more she enjoyed his company. She was falling for the enemy and didn’t know what to do about it.

Emmett felt like a failure when his soldiers, himself, and Abigail were captured. Abigail was a healer and a Canadian, so she didn’t think that she had anything to worry about. She was wrong. British officer, Lieutenant Fox, made it very clear that he didn’t believe her story. The Lieutenant was a cunning and cruel man. He took great pleasure, in making people, who crossed him, suffer. Unfortunately, Captain Emmett Prescott was at the top of his list. 

My Dearest Enemy is well researched and written. I became engrossed in the story and cared about the characters, right from the start. The romance between Abigail and Emmitt is heartwarming, engaging and sweet. I have read several of Jennifer Moore’s books and have never been disappointed. 

Thank you, Covenant Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.

Miss Leslie’s Secret by Jennifer Moore–5 Stars–Book Review

Miss Leslie's Secret..850.jpg

Don’t Miss Reading Jennifer Moore’s Newest 5-Star Historical Fiction!

 

Miss Leslie’s Secret is a heartfelt historical fiction romance that takes place in the Highlands during the 1800s.
When Sergeant Conall Stewart returned home after the war, he was devastated. His hometown was in ruins, and his family was missing. Conall rented a place temporarily, in Dunaid until he could locate his parents and sister. But, the town of Dunaid began to grow on him, especially, after he met Aileen Leslie and her son Jamie. Conell’s relationship with the two, however, had a rocky start. Cornell was furious and confronted Aileen when he found Jamie wandering around his library, supposedly looking for a cat. That lie was exposed, much to Aileen’s dismay when she came upon Conell’s war medal in Jamie’s pants.

Conell took Jamie under his wing and was surprised when he found himself developing a strong bond with the boy. Jamie idolized the Sergeant, and although Aileen was happy to have a positive male role model for Jamie, she was ashamed of how jealous she became of their relationship. But, Conell Stewart was an easy man to like and trust. Aileen, even found herself falling under the Sergeant’s spell. She wanted to confide in the man and confess her secret to him. But, Aileen could never find the right time or words to tell him. Her indecision cost her. Aileen’s silence had not only broken hearts but also put her son in danger.

Miss Leslie’s Secret is a superbly written story. She paints a stunning picture of Scotland’s scenery and history, using authentic details, customs, and dialect. I felt as if I was transported back in time to the beautiful Scottish Highlands.

Thank you, Covenant Communications and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I Loved it!

Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart by Jennifer Moore

Miss Whitaker opens her heart.10.49

 

Don’t Miss Jennifer Moore’s Newest Release; Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart!

It’s Superbly Written, Thought-Provoking and Touching.-I loved it!

I absolutely loved Jennifer Moore’s newest release; Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart. I was quickly swept up into the story and couldn’t put it down until I read the last page.

It was 1814, and Eleven-year-old Sarah Whitaker, was anxious to reach Australia. She couldn’t wait to see her papa again. Unlike, her Aunt; she didn’t mind the open seas. Sarah loved everything about the ship. Captain Thackery even allowed her to work alongside his crew. But, Sarah’s happiness would come to an abrupt halt, as soon as she reached the shores of Australia. Ten years later, though, Sarah was still in Australia. She loved managing her father’s sheep farm even though it came with many challenges, betrayals, and setbacks. Her latest betrayal came from Daniel Burton, her new neighbor, he not only took the land that she tried to buy, he stole her best foreman as well.

Daniel Burton had been sentenced to death, but instead of hanging he was shipped to Australia. He received a full pardon for his crimes from the governor of the penal colonies. The Duke of Southhampton had paid his way. And, although, Daniel was ashamed of his past behavior, he was grateful for his new start in Australia. One of the best things about his new life, was his neighbor, Sarah Whitaker. She was beautiful and fascinating, and Daniel was determined to make up for their rocky start. Although her farm was filled with working convicts, she didn’t trust any of them. Sarah had been hurt and betrayed too many times to let her guard down. Daniel didn’t know how to tell Sarah about his past. He was hoping that he could just keep it a secret. But, Daniel knew that secrets never stayed hidden for long. And, unfortunately, he was right.

Jennifer Moore has become one of my favorite authors. Her novels are superbly written, thought-provoking, and heartfelt. I highly recommend reading Miss Whitaker Open’s Her Heart.

Thank you, Covenant Communications and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

A Place For Miss Snow by Jennifer Moore

a-place-for-miss-snow

 

New Release From Jennifer Moore

Don’t Miss it!

A Place For Miss Snow is a sweet historical regency romance.

Diana Snow was a British orphan. She never knew what it was like to have a family or even a close friend. To keep herself from being hurt, Diana hid her feelings from everyone. However, after only a chance meeting with Alex Metaxas, a man whom she felt an immediate connection to, she did something foolish. Diana knew that it was unwise to follow a man, especially, in the dark, but she did so anyway. Diana told herself that she was only returning his gloves, but she knew that was just an excuse. Diana had no idea, though, that following Alex that night would lead to her kidnapping.

As far as kidnappings go, Diana considered herself lucky. She was brought to Greece and placed with a family who needed her assistance. They treated her with kindness and never made her feel as if she was a servant. Although Diana tried not to become close, she found herself falling in love with the children and the mother who she cared for. For the first time in her life, Diana felt actually happy, needed and part of a family unit. Alex became a regular visitor, and as much as she tried not to lose her heart to him, she knew that she already had.

I loved that the setting for this novel was in Greece. I found it fascinating to learn about what it was like to live there during the Regency period. I had no idea of the horrid hardships that the Greeks were made to endure under the Turks rule. A Place For Miss Snow is an enjoyable well-written historical fiction romance. I loved it.

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley, for my advance review copy of this book.
