Fallen by Linda Castillo – Book Review

As always, Linda Castillo does not disappoint. I have read all the novels in the Kate Burkholder series – twice now – and each is better than the last. Castillo’s way with words, her twists and turns in every story, and her distinct characters keep me coming back for more. Linda Castillo is an author on my “pre-order” radar – as soon as I know a new novel is coming – I’m sold without hesitation.

In this latest novel, Fallen, I fall even more in love with the main character Kate. She is an amazing, fully fleshed-out character full of life, attitude, and grit. I have enjoyed her growth as a woman. She is independent, fierce and wickedly smart, and humorous to an extent.

You will find bits of sweet and gentle romance, leaving your mind to wander where it will.

All of Castillo’s novels in the Kate Burkholder series can be read in any order, in my opinion, and they can fully ensconce the reader in the life of a female police chief protecting her beloved town in an Amish community.

Kudos Linda Castillo, I look forward to reading many more of your novels in the future!

The Girl Who Could Breathe Under Water – Book Review

The Girl Who Could Breathe Under Water by Erin Bartels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Stunning. This book is incredible. The way in which this book was beautifully crafted in telling a story is amazing, delicious and stunning. This novel is about a few topics I myself have never experienced and I thank God for that. It has not only opened my eyes to real issues in our world but also has given me a bigger perspective of a writers life. Erin Bartels is a master of storytelling. Applause to you Mrs. Bartels and I cannot wait to read more of your work!
