MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR M. Michelle Derosier…

Michelle loves Jesus and is fueled by black coffee, espresso, and freshly baked goods. Sadly, she’s not skilled at making any of the three. She writes culturally diverse stories from picture books to novels and shares an assortment of Haitian-American tales that are overlooked in the mainstream.

Michelle’s featured book is entitled Accepting Elijah’s Heart. The information is as follows:

Description:

He’s a former bad boy learning to forgive his past mistakes.

She’s a grieving widow struggling with motherhood.

A life-altering event offers them hope for a better future together.

Elijah Cooper grew up in church but without a relationship with God. Something he didn’t think he needed until he did. When Eli offers Reina support in a crisis, a friendship develops that could blossom

to more. But with his troubled past, he is not interested in a love match or a ready-made family.

After her husband’s untimely death, Reina Blackwell can’t trust the ground she walks on not to crumble beneath her. She’s certainly no longer trusting the God who created it. Not after he shatters her world leaving her alone to mourn and raise her son. 

With scars too deep to heal on their own, can Eli and Reina find the faith they need to give and receive love?

Inspirational Journeys Presents: Book Review of Cassandra and the Cowboy by Janine Mick Wills

Hello everyone in the blogosphere, Today I have a special treat for you. I am reprising a book feature from a blog post I did on July 9, 2019. However, instead of an interview, I will link my book review of the featured novel below.

Book Title:

Cassandra and the Cowboy: Texas Treasures book 1

Written by Janine Mick Wills

Book description:

Cassandra Pickett is one prayer away from giving up on God. The tragic death of her father and the devastating results of the Great Drought of 1886 have centered the family ranch, the Triple P, in the crosshairs of the Goose Neck Ridge Bank of Texas. Desperate to save the Triple P, Cassandra sees only one option: marriage to Phillip Brigham, her neighbor and local cattle baron, who promises to repay her father’s loan. When the enigmatic Matt Atkins shows up looking for a job, Cassandra wonders if the cowboy could be the answer to her prayer instead. As they work side by side, Cassandra’s feelings for Matt deepen, and she envisions the possibility of marrying for love and not out of necessity. But her dreams are shattered when she discovers Matt harbors a hidden agenda for the Triple P. Will Cassandra have to turn to Phillip after all, or will God take the shards of her broken dreams and create something far beyond what she could ever hope for?

Available in Kindle and paperback

A Fearful Heart by Cherry Christinson book review

Last weekend I finished reading an awesome book by Cherry Christinson called A Fearful Heart. I must say that this book was hard to put down. The author pulled me right into the story, and kept me going until the end. I can’t remember the main character’s name, but I believe that she would have been better off falling for her best friend, instead of a guy she met in college, who actually turned out to be a very bad guy. I won’t say much more than that, but I give this book a 5* rating. I purchased this book for $0.99 on iBooks.
Until next time, happy reading, writing and blogging, and God bless. BTW, happy easter to one and all.
