Inkwell Inspirations Reviews
By Gina Welborn
No one likes an author who waxes eloquent about her own book. So instead of the Inkies telling you what we love about our own or even each other's books, I thought I'd let reviewers speak for us. Books are in order by alphabetization not release date. And I only listed one book per published Inky.
"Impressed by Love" by Lisa Karon Richardson
"Over all I enjoyed this book. Of the four stories I liked that last two the best and my favorite was the last one with Alden. That story could have easily been a stand alone novel." ~Abbie
"Life is full of the unexpected, don't you think? That seems to be the over-riding theme of this 4-in-1 collection from Barbour's Romancing America series, where each of the characters find that life has taken one or more turns they had not seen coming. Each of these authors takes those turns and gives them an extra twist in these tales of Early Americana." ~Valerie

HIGHLAND CROSSINGS: "Sugarplum Hearts"
by Gina Welborn
"Each gifted author adds her own personal touch to four interacting progressive storylines. If I had to pick a favorite I it would be Sugarplum Hearts. I was entertained by these well written romantic and suspenseful novellas and had a hard time putting the stories down!" ~Kathy
"Something I really enjoyed about this collection were the voices of the various authors. In general, I prefer reading contemporary romance over historical, so it takes a stronger voice to pull me into historical fiction. These gals have that voice in spades." ~Valerie
HIGHLAND CROSSING for Nook or Kindle is currently $2.99!
Gina's second novella "All Ye Faithful" is in A CASCADES CHRISTMAS.
IN HONOR BOUND

"An excellent book by a genuinely talented author which deserves to much more widely read and appreciated." ~Medieval Lady
"DeAnna Julie Dodson's first book in a trilogy, "In Honor Bound" is full of fascinating characters, devotion, treachery, and God's enduring love. DeAnna's descriptions paint vivid pictures for the reader with tender love scenes and exciting battles. I highly recommend "In Honor Bound" to everyone." ~Beverly

LOVE IN THREE-QUARTER TIME
by Dina Sleiman
"This book reads like you're going on an adventure with the lovely characters. Sometimes I felt I had to dance and praise God while reading. This book is beautifully written and shows much of God's grace!" ~Marian
"Dina has written a beautiful story that takes us through things in Constance's life that will have you giggling in delight or on the verge of tears for a young girl that has far too many hurts in her life. And how she longs for a love like no other and how she finds that love in a God that once again restores the joy in her life that has been missing." ~Teresa

THE MOTHER ROAD
by Jennifer AlLee
"In this her latest Abingdon release, Jennifer AlLee somehow manages to combine humor and angst, a TIGHT plot with sleight-of-hand symbolism and irony." ~Patty
"I saw this title on a friend's website, and I'm so glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride; AlLee's humorous voice, spot-on descriptions and dimensional, believable characters make the trip along Route 66 a page turner." ~B Nault
"Almost my story, it was fun to read and feel empathy for this character. I am a survivor, hope more women, going through divorce could read this in the beginning." ~Loree
Amazon * Barnes and Noble * CBD * Mardel

A WILD GOOSE CHASE CHRISTMAS and THE LOVE OF HIS BROTHER are also available!
by Susan Diane Johnson
"What's not to love about this book? It's true love (high school sweethearts) given a second chance after 17 years. Plus a duck named Rufus!" ~Teresa
"I really enjoyed reading 'No Substitute', a fun and light-hearted reunion romance between childhood sweethearts Amy and Quentin. Amy grows in her faith as she rediscovers Goose Bay and her love for Quentin. He is a lovable hero who is doing his best to raise his teen daughter on his own. We see Quentin's faith in action and his willingness to forgive in difficult and challenging situations. I highly recommend this book to those looking for an entertaining and inspiring Christian romance with a forgiveness theme." ~Narelle
