Book Review: The Girls Still Got It by Liz Curtis Higgs

The Girls Still Got It is an in-depth telling of the story of Ruth, in which Higgs proves that her non-fiction skills are just as powerful as her awesome works of fiction. She's always been one of my favorite authors. 

I have to say that when I requested this book I didn't realize it was a nonfiction book :) Having read Liz's  recent series, Here Burns My Candle and Mine is the Night, the stories of Ruth and Naomi are still fresh in my mind. It's always been a passionate love story and she brings it to a more personal level.

I think this would be wonderful to share with a ladies Bible study group! Check out this book trailer!

I got this book for free in exchange for my review. You can get free books too if you sign up for Blogging for Books! Click the Blogging for Books button on the sidebar.

Book Review: Over the Edge by Mary Connealy

This is a review for Over the Edge by Mary Connealy but in truth it's for the whole Kincaid Brides series. When I received the second book in the series (quite by accident), In Too Deep from Bethany House I knew I couldn't start in the middle of the series. So I actually bought the first book, Out of Control for my kindle. And I was very happy I did. I was in love with the Kincaid men. I've always had a soft place in my heart for cowboys.

In the first book, we meet Rafe. He's a little on the hard-headed side but with just cause. He's been running the family ranch and he's got everything under control until he meets Julia. Their story is very fun. It's a slow starter so you have to give a good effort to get through the first book. But once you do you'll be so glad you did. Rafe and Julia's story is just the beginning.

In book 2, In Too Deep you'll get to know Ethan. Though he wears a goofy smile, he's hiding some some not too happy memories. He met Audra in the first book, his sister in laws step mother. Yup, it's all very familiar :) I grew up in the south. No offense. We also get to know Seth, the third Kincade brother.

Book 3, Over the Edge starts off with a literal bang. Seth Kincade has a wife. Yeah, he didn't know it either. He's been through quite a bit what with the war and cave fire. He's a little nutty. This was by far the best of the 3 book series! The tension between Seth and Callie is awesome. They are both very passionate people, which makes for lots of fun!

I have seriously loved every moment of this series and I highly recommend it to everyone. It would be an awesome read for the summer or even by the fire during the holidays. I recommend it for anyone who loves a good romance. And who doesn't love cowboys?

Here's a video trailer for Over the Edge!
