Inventions of the Heart by Mary Connealy

Series: The Lumber Baron’s Daughters #2

Release Date: July 5, 2022

Genre: Christian, Historical/Western Romance

My Review

I’m not one to be a fan of westerns, but aside from all the horses and outlaws I wouldn’t really think of this as a western. This book is just a very entertaining story of good families that work together to make all their lives better. It’s also the story of some terrible families and people who only care about themselves and will commit any offense in order to get what they want.

It’s the second book of a series, and I’ll be eager to read the other books in this series. The writing is great and I was sold on the first page. This book has a lot of characters, but the main two are Michelle and Zane. Zane owns the Two Harts Ranch, which is mainly a cattle ranch. He has plenty of workers and also others that live on the vast property, who were part of a missionary group.

He has recently had two new guests, Michelle and Zilly Stiles, who are the sisters of the lumber magnate. They’re in hiding from their wicked step-father who desires to marry them off to horrible old men so that he can gain control of the fortune and business. These highly-educated girls were trained in engineering and building.

The story is complex, but easy enough to follow. It’s very exciting and you’ll find yourself almost holding your breath, hoping that the good guys can succeed at every turn. The bad guys are offered chances to turn from their evil ways and give their hearts to God, but they don’t. I know you’ll enjoy this rip-roaring western with enough romance for all of us.

The Epic Story of RJ and York Blog & Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Epic Story of RJ and York by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE SERIES

It’s an epic adventure across Europe, from France to Italy, to Germany and even Russia in this riveting, fun, romantic, enthralling trilogy about true love, honor, and the cost of, well, saving the world.

Title: Out of the Night Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #1 Author: Susan May Warren Publisher: SDG Publishing Release Date: August 9, 2022 Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The romantic trilogy ignites in book one of the Epic Story of RJ and York! He’s not looking for trouble… All former spy and current national security agent York Newgate wants is to propose to the woman he loves, RJ Marshall. Then they can move to Shelly, Washington, and start the calm, safe life he’s been dreaming of for over a year. Too bad trouble doesn’t agree… Or maybe RJ simply attracts trouble because she’s just going out for coffee when she spots a wanted, known terrorist standing in the middle of a street in Paris. At least she thinks it’s international criminal Alan Martin, the mastermind behind a plot to kill the president. But he’s in jail, right? Wrong. Martin has escaped, and it’s up to RJ—and York—to keep him in their sights until he can be apprehended. But chasing down Martin means following him into the darkness of whatever plot he’s cooked up now. Will he ever outrun trouble to find his happy ending? So much for York’s epic proposal. Now, he just wants to escape Europe with their lives. PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble  

Title: I Will Find You Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #2 Author: Susan May Warren Publisher: SDG Publishing Release Date: August 16, 2022 Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The gripping romantic adventure continues across Europe in this second installment of the Epic Story of RJ and York! The woman he loves has vanished… When RJ Marshall said she’d be right back, York should have objected. No, he wasn’t going to let her run off to Berlin, even if it was to save a little girl. Only problem—she’d told him this while he was unconscious. So really, it doesn’t count, and it’s not his fault that she’s gone missing. And, he didn’t know why he expected RJ not to chase danger into trouble. But now he has to find her before criminal mastermind Alan Martin tracks her down. She’s in over her head… RJ didn’t mean to leave York behind, but she’s on a mission to save a little girl caught in the crossfire of Martin’s terrorist plot. Now, she’ll have to find the girl and keep her safe while leaving clues for York to follow her. But who will catch up to her first—York, or the man with a vendetta? PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble  

Title: No Matter the Cost Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #3 Author: Susan May Warren Publisher: SDG Publishing Release Date: August 23, 2022 Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The riveting conclusion to the Epic Story of RJ and York! Her worst nightmare has happened…. RJ refuses to believe it, and until she has proof, she’s going to keep searching for answers. And most of all, for the man she loves, even if it means diving into the past he always wanted to keep secret. The kind of secrets that could have set York free. It’ll take a trip back to Russia, to the sketchy and dark history of York’s life to find the clues to the sinister plans of a global terrorist. And the answers that might lead her to a happy ending. Or has it? What if her happy ending is more than a dream? If RJ hopes to save her country—and find out the truth about York—she’ll have to become the high-action, Sydney Bristow spy that she always dreamed of being. But really, does RJ really have what it takes—with, or without the man she loves—to save the world? And if she does…what will be the cost? PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

ABOUT THE BOOK

Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Keystone

Written by J.T. Michaels

Ages 13-18 | 336 Pages

Publisher: J.T. Michaels | ISBN-13: 9781778035203

Publisher’s Synopsis: Author J.T. Michaels brings a fantasy tale of an ancient war, a modern-day murder mystery, mystical creatures, and memorable characters in his masterfully written young adult novel, Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Keystone.

The Great War ended a century ago. Peace reigns across the eight countries. Epic tales of heroic men and women of those times are recounted in song and story. Yet, history seems to have forgotten a young battlefield healer, Tessa Marlise…

Sixteen-year-old Jimmy Chartron has just enrolled at the Navale Academy of Eagleon, his mind set on becoming an electrician. A chance magical encounter binds him to the trapped soul of Tessa Marlise. As Jimmy struggles to deal with this shocking development, murder and mystery unravel in the academy. Caught in the middle of everything, Jimmy realizes that a larger evil is afoot and that only two things can stop it: himself and the ghost in his head…

MY REVIEW

Young Adults and some Middle Grade students will love this book, filled with adventure. They’re going to be looking for more in this series, because of the book’s creativity. Each and every page draws the reader in so that they really can’t find a good place to stop. “Just one more minute” will be the excuse we give for staying up too late to keep reading.

Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Key Keystone is mysterious, a little scary, and oh, so interesting! I found myself reading quickly because I wanted to see what was going to happen next. Picking a book filled with danger and excitement? This is the one for you!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Author J.T. Michaels has always loved storytelling, no matter the medium. Being immersed in a different world, whether it’s through books or video games, has also been an obsession for him. Years after writing for his school magazine, he discovered he wanted to create his own worlds for readers, and his journey to fantasy writing began with Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Keystone, the first volume in his epic fantasy series.   

J.T. gets inspiration for his books from everything around him, incorporating his friends as character ideas to make his stories as relatable and realistic as possible. He hopes his young readers come away from his stories having escaped from the real world for a bit and with a spark of magic that lasts long after the book is closed. 

When he isn’t writing enchanting fantasy novels for teens, J.T. enjoys running and spending time outside in the sunshine and hunkering down in a bookstore or library on rainy days. He lives in British Columbia, Canada, where he likes to indulge in a great cup of coffee. Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Keystone is his debut novel, the first in a planned fantasy trilogy.
