I recently finished reading One Dress. One Year.: One Girl’s Stand Against Human Trafficking by Bethany Winz with Susanna Foth Aughtmon. All I can say is, “Wow.” Bethany’s story is both an incredibly relatable diary and inspiring insight into the horrors of human trafficking. I especially appreciated Bethany’s candor regarding her motivation during The Dress Project. As a long-time Christian who also read Alex and Brett Harris’ Do Hard Things in high school, I was hit hard with her admissions of struggling with perfectionism. This book is not only a chronicle of Bethany’s life during The Dress Project, it is a mirror through which all believers should examine themselves. While Bethany repeatedly calls her readers to join the fight against human trafficking, she also calls them to examine their motivations for doing so. Overall, an excellent and inspiring read. I would definitely recommend this to any and all believers. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
I recently finished reading A Fool and His Monet by Sandra Orchard. While I’m not usually one for contemporary crime novels, this one was a winner! Sandra has perfectly crafted some lovable characters with an exciting story! Full of twists and turns, the mystery aspect of the novel kept me guessing. Serena Jones is one awesome FBI agent whose spunk and charm leave you rooting for her to get the bad guy. Oh, and a good guy! Talk about tough decisions! While I usually find the love triangle trope to be overused, this one is truly difficult to peg! I liked both romantic interests, and I’m looking forward to seeing who Serena will choose. This series is off to a running start, and you can bet that I will be along for the ride! I received this novel from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
I recently finished reading Flirtation Walk by Siri Mitchell. This was a very enjoyable book that checked all the boxes for romantic and entertaining reading! I absolutely adored the characters, and I felt that the story and romance progressed nicely and at a realistic pace. Siri Mitchell has obviously researched her books very well, as the story is very authentic in regards to military history and West Point without reading like a university textbook. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable read that I would highly recommend! I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
