Flowers in December Trilogy by Jane Suen
Four Stars

Flowers in December is a self enlightening story by Jane Suen. I have read three or four books by Ms. Suen, but I have to say I think this my favorite so far. This story has a personal element for me, having lost my grandmother this last year. This short story was beautifully written and very emotional. This book had me from the first page to the last. Conner Norton’s struggle with grief is prominent in this story as he returns to his hometown town for his mother’s funeral. After the funeral he stays to get his family affairs in order, which brings on self reflection. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster, I definitely needed my box of tissues. Conner’s strength of character made this story flow. I highly recommend this book.

Coming Home by Jane Suen

Coming Home: The Sequel To Flowers in December by Jane Suen. This is the continuation of Connor’s story as he comes home for Christmas. This book could be read as a standalone, but I would highly recommend that you read it in order to get the full story. This is a feel good romance full of ups and downs. I was hooked on the very first page and couldn’t put it down until the last. The ups and downs gave me all the feels and I truly enjoyed this story. I highly recommend this book, series and author.

Second Chance: The Conclusion of the Flowers in December Trilogy by Jane Suen

Second Chance is the last book in the Flowers in December Trilogy and the book I have been waiting for. I have enjoyed the whole series but this book really tied things up. This book could be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend this series in order. Conner and Mary Ann’s story was sweet and just what I needed after the holidays. Jane Suen does a great job with the short HEA stories that make you feel good reading. I look forward to seeing what she has in store for us next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Out of the Shadows by Theresa Sederholt is a well written book everyone should give a chance.

Dane has a horrific secret. Not only is he ashamed, he knows that exposing his secret comes with great risk. Unfortunately, he can’t keep his secret anymore and he may lose the very person he was protecting because of it.

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up this book but it was such a deep story. This book was very well written given the subject matter. It really shed light on the lack of resources for men who are victims of domestic violence. It’s really easy to forget that women aren’t the only victims and this book did a great job addressing such a difficult subject. I highly recommend this book!

5-Stars

A Kiss Beneath A Strawberry Moon (Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock ‘N Sweet Romance 3) By Tamara Ferguson was sweet and romantic. I loved Marielle and Drew. Watching their relationship bloom as teens was beautiful. I loved how they were so open and also how much talent they had. This was a beautiful short read. I love that it took place around Crystal Rock and the small town. Thus is a common setting in Ferguson’s books. Such a good read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Kiss Beneath A Strawberry Moon is a wonderful sweet romance story by Tamara Ferguson. My usual genre is romance that is a bit more dirty but I have really become a fan of Tamara Ferguson’s sweet romances set in Dragonfly Pointe.
As with many of the others that I have read this is not a full length novel but Ferguson packs so much into her stories that you are not left wanting.
In this book Marielle, an aspiring singer, meets Drew, an up and coming songwriter at a summer camp for aspiring musicians. Both have wonderful futures ahead of them. Marielle is destined to become a huge star and Drew wants to go to college and then into teaching. Both are devoted to each other and are determined to spend their lives together but fate steps in the way. A family disagreement causes Drew to drop out of college and join the military where he is badly injured.
I loved this story of young love. Drew and Marielle are so sweet and their love for each other is so strong. What will happen when Marielle becomes a huge star? How will Drew cope with his injuries and disfigurement and will Marielle still want him? Read this wonderful sweet romance story and see how Drew and Marielle fall in love and how the cope with the dramas that life throws at them.

A Kiss Beneath A Strawberry Moon( Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock ‘N Sweet Romance #3) by Tamara Ferguson. I have read mostly all of Ms. Ferguson’s books and I have loved them all. A young love book at its finest!!! I expected nothing different from this amazing author!

While serving, he is injured and abruptly stops contact with Marielle. Will true love prevail in the end????

Flowers in December by Jane Suen
4 stars

This book was different than any I’ve read before. Connor goes back home to bury his mother, and comes to terms he’s the only one left in his family.
We see the grief, the growth and the inner feelings of Connor as he goes through the stages of going through memories and belongings of his parents. I enjoyed this book.

While I have lost my father at a young age, I only know what I should be missing, not feeling the loss of the person themselves as a whole. This was a great read

Coming Home (Flowers in December #2) by Jane Suen
4 stars

Before you read this, you must read book one, Flowers in December.
This was a quick read but so much was packed into this story. This book picks up 4 months after the first at Christmas time, but doesn’t need to be read as a holiday read at all.
I don’t want to say anything about this book that may become a spoiler of sorts but this is a must read. It didn’t go the way I thought it was going to and that was surprising.
Can’t wait for more from this author

Second Chance (Flowers in December #3)
I have read this series in order but you can read this as a standalone, but I think its best to read all 3.
This book was sweet, and shows no matter what love can prevail.
Im not the biggest fan of back and forth from past to present but did appreciate getting to know Mary Ann. This is the perfect ending to this trilogy, and I will look for more from this author .

5 out of 5 Stars
Dane Johnson, a man so broken by the secret he is holding that it is tearing him apart. Warning that this book may trigger some people who are sensitive to acts of violence, both mentally and on some base, physically, so If you are more tenderhearted than others, this book may be a bit much for you, so tread carefully.
Having said all of that, this book is beautifully written from Dane’s point of view. While not wanting to give you too much of what happens, this story is so heartbreaking, so emotionally charged, and so devastating that you are both crying and cheering for Dane at the same time. I feel that I am a better person for reading this book. I highly recommend this book for lovers of all book genres.

Out Of The Shadows by Theresa Sederholt was a super emotional read. Unlike anything I have leaped into before. My heart felt for Dane and Brady. It was a shock to read the situation from a man’s point of view, definitely something under represented. I was torn between stopping for emotional breaks and also just reading straight in one sitting.

Out Of The Shadows

by Theresa Sederholt

OMG this story wrecked me emotionally. Dane is a 30 something year old man who is keeping a secret in hopes of protecting himself and his 13 year old son. One night changes everything and now everyone is going to know the secret he has been keeping, but that’s not even his biggest worry, he might lose his son. This story gripped me from the start. The author did an exceptional job writing this story and opening my eyes to a new perspective. This book touched my heart and in a way that I don’t have words to express. I am just going to say this is a 5 star read and I highly recommend this story.
