Book Blog Swap with Joy from Edgy Inspirational Romance

I'm over at Joy's Edgy Inspirational Romance blog today with a review of Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer while Joy is here with a review of Beguiled by Deeanne Gist and Mark Bertrand. Enjoy and I'll look for you at Joy's blog. :-)

Rylee Monroe walks dogs in the ritziest area of Charleston, South Carolina. She leads a solitary life which revolves around the animals she cares for and her senile grandmother in a nursing home.

Newspaper reporter Logan Woods is writing a book about local criminals that could make his career. When his investigation of the Robin Hood Burglaries in prominent Charleston estates leads him to Rylee Monroe, he finds he just may be barking up the wrong statue.

Beguiled is a romantic suspense that kept me flipping the pages right up to the very end. This collaboration between Gist and Mark Bertrand (her former crit partner) was a nice change of pace from her historical romances. It didn’t have the same edgy inspirational quality as her other stories, but it was a quick and enjoyable read which guarantees Gist will remain on my list of favorite authors.

About Joy:

I am a wife, a mother, a Jesus lover.  I have three rambunctious boys under the age of ten, and an awesome husband who entertains them when I need to hole myself up in a room and write.

  1. Hi Casey!

    Thanks for hosting me today!

    I'm still working through those Margie lecture packets. My pace has slowed a little though. Is it alright if I send over assignments as I finish them? I'll crit the ones you sent me as I finish each lecture too.


  2. Thank YOU Joy, it was fun! And YES, please feel free to do so! Would love to continue doing that. :)

  3. Liked this book. Not as much as some of her other books. Seemed that this one took a couple chapters to get into. Anyway I am a HUGE fan of her work. My favorite book of hers is A Bride in the Bargain. Have you read that one? I did a reveiw of it on my blog.http://candysfavorites.blogspot.com/2011/05/some-of-my-all-time-favorite-books.html


Thank you so much for stopping by, I love to hear from those who traffic my blog! Have a wonderful day. :)
