McKenzie by Penny Zeller

McKenzie by Penny Zeller is a great book.  I could not put it down!  McKenzie Worthington is part of Boston's High Society and expected to marry one of Boston's elite bachelors.  She loves the high life of Boston and plans to live in Bosotn forever as the wife of a rich Bostonian.  There is only one thing that stands in her way.  The love she has for her sister.  Her sister married a con artist and was dragged to the Montana Territory and is being abused by him.  The only way McKenzie can think of to save her is by becoming a mail order bride.
Zachary Sawyer is an orpahn who now owns a rach in the Montana Territory.  He adopted his best friend's son after he died.  Davey needs a mom and Zach needs a wife, but women are scarce in his town.  He decides the only way is to pray and ask God to send him a mail order bride. 
God has his own plans.  You'll have to read the story to see how God works a miracle in the lives of McKenzie, Zach, and her sister, Kaydie.  This is a great book and you can tell that Penny has a close, personal relationship with God.  The book is very uplifting with many biblical truths woven in.

I can't wait to read the next book Kaydie, it will be out April 5.
Be sure to buy this book, I loved it!
Happy Reading,

Code of Justice by Liz Johnson

Liz Johnson sent me Code of Justice to review.  It is a short novella, but I could hardly put it down.  The book is about an FBI agent who's sister was killed in a helicopter crash. "Follow the drugs" were her sisters last words, but Heather does not know what it means.   Heather Sloan almost died in the crash with her sister.  Sheriff's deputy, Jeremy Latham, is assigned to the case.  As Heather and Jeremy work together to find out why someone tried to kill her, they uncover many things - not only about the case, but also about themselves.  Deep secrets and insecurities about themselves rise to the surface as they not only get closer to solving the case but get closer to each other also. 
Liz Johnson is an excellent writer who is able to bring her readers into the lives of the characters of her book.  Code of Justice has many biblical truths woven into the story.  It's a great book that I would highly recommend.
