The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers–Book Review


To an outsider, Roman Velasco appears to have it all. He has a nice house, fame, fortune, and any woman would kill to be on his arm. When Grace Moore walks into his life as his new assistant, he immediately notices how different she is from other women. She works hard, and doesn’t appreciate his foul mouth. Roman quickly finds himself wanting to know more about this elusive woman. Grace is a God-honoring woman who is trying hard to make a life for her and her son, and trying to get over the pain and regrets of her past. Will they open up to each other enough to see that they have more in common than they realize? Will Roman see his need of Jesus before it’s too late?


This story was fantastic. I was drawn in from the beginning, and I loved the different spiritual lessons seen throughout the book. One specific lesson I loved, God is working a masterpiece in each one of us, and yes we may have flaws or things in our past that we regret, but God in His grace will forgive us and save us and use us for His glory despite our past. The story was beautifully written, and I loved each of the characters! There were a few twists and turns along the way, which kept you wondering how it was going to end. I highly recommend this book!

Edge-of-your-seat suspense is the best way to describe this fast-paced mystery. It will literally keep you guessing until the end! So amazing. I have read a few of Eason’s books, and this book does not disappoint. If you love suspense and mystery, you will love this book. I quickly fell in love with the characters, and felt like I was with Izzy through the whole investigation, and the many bumps along the road. This is definitely one you need to read!

Refining Fire by Tracie Peterson–Book Review

refiining fireMilitine meets Thane while helping her friend Abrianna feed the poor of Seattle. Both have secrets from their past that cause them to guard themselves from others. Neither wants to expose their secret, but when faced with love, will they be able to overcome their fears so they can move on from their past? Abrianna is a headstrong, unconventional woman, but she is willing to do anything to serve the Lord. She is Militine’s best friend and is always getting them into trouble with her schemes. These two good friends have a lot in common, but Abrianna has a strong faith in the Lord, while Militine questions her faith.

This was book two of the Brides of Seattle Series, but it is a totally separate story, so even though I haven’t yet read book one, I wasn’t lost or missing any pieces. The storyline of this book was awesome. It was very well written and the story was very well developed. Just when you think you have figured out what’s going to happen, Peterson throws in a little twist to keep you guessing. I have always been a big fan of Tracie Peterson’s work, but I had a hard time putting this book down. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. If you love a good romance novel I highly recommend this book as well as any other book by Tracie Peterson.
