About The Delusion

About Christy
At nineteen, Christy Huddleston left home to teach school in the Smokies — coming to know and care for the wild mountain people, with their fierce pride, terrible poverty, dark superstitions…and their yearning for beauty and truth. But in these primitive surroundings, Christy’s faith would be severely tested by the unique strengths and needs of two remarkable young men — and challenged by a heart torn between desire…and love.

My Review
Christy is one of those books I’ve read probably almost a dozen times. I think I first read … Continue reading

About Huntress
No one’s afterlife is as dispiriting as Audrey’s―at least that’s what she believes after waking up dead without her memories and being promptly assigned to hunt demons for the rest of eternity. She’s convinced God’s made a cosmic mistake; after all, she’d rather discuss the color of her nails than break them on angelic weapons.

It doesn’t help that her trainer, Logan, is as infuriating as he is attractive. And just when Audrey and Logan appear close to developing an amicable relationship, a decision made under duress pushes their hearts in a direction neither of them saw coming.

Despite her sub-par fighting abilities, an ancient weapon … Continue reading

Love on the Rocks Blog Tour and Giveaway

Love on the Rocks Blog TourI’m super excited to be kicking off the Love on the Rocks Blog Tour for the amazing Kerry Evelyn. If you were at her book launch a few weeks ago on her Facebook page, you already know how much fun Kerry is and how sweet her books are. If you’ve never heard of the Crane’s Cove series, then yay! I get to tell you about it for the first time.

These books are a little outside my usual go-to read, since they’re adult romance, but once in awhile everyone needs something different, right? I love the high drama and angst of YA, but reading a sweet, straightforward romance is a nice break!

Read on for some information about the book, … Continue reading

Q&A with Be Affected Author Riley Choquette

One of the few nonfiction titles I selected this year is a short book called Be Affected, which challenges and encourages young Christian men as they enter early stages of dating. It’s kind of a quick tips guide to successfully navigating those first relationships and build great boundaries and habits for dating relationships in general. It was a fun read, so I’m super excited to be able to talk a little more with author Riley Choquette.

Q&A with Riley Choquette

What inspired you to write BE AFFECTED?

In my residential college, I got to share a couple of songs at a coffee shop night, and I realized that both of the songs I had chosen were about dating relationships not working out. In between the songs, I took a moment to explain that people don’t have to feel crazy when they are deeply affected by their desires to be in … Continue reading
