Every December she remembers the joy her mother brought to everyone during the holiday season and feels the pain of her absence, even more so now that she and her sister are barely speaking. More than anything, Alexis wishes her family could be whole again.

However, with her wedding fast approaching, Alexis might just be ready to make some holiday memories with a new family of her own. Alexis’s fiancé, Chase Dupont, is everything she ever dreamed of. He’s kind, handsome, fully supportive of Alexis’s career, and the CEO of a large company. But outside forces threaten to derail this happy couple from ever reaching the altar.
As tensions rise, a dramatic event causes Alexis to question everything. Will fate give her what she needs to finally embrace the season that has brought her so much pain? Will Alexis get her wish for a happy holiday? Or will her Christmas prayer go unanswered?

Book Review About A Christmas Prayer

The Book Cover of “A Christmas Prayer” really caught my attention and also a beautiful Cover. This is the first book, “A Christmas Prayer” written by Kimberla Lawson Roby. She really created a wonderful Christmas Novella about the Christian romance between Alexis and Chase. They are truly in love with each other and about to planned their future together as husband and wife. There is one obstacles that may prevent that and it called the future mother-in-law from hell. Geneva who is Chase’s mother and she doesn’t like Alexis and don’t think she isn’t good enough for her son. The only thing Geneva wants is to end the relationship between Alexis and her son, Chase. This storyline is full with painful circumstances with the conflict between Alexis and Sabrina who are sisters. Every Seasons of Christmas, Alexis feel so empty due in the facts that she is mourning the death of her mother. She also have to deal with the drama with Geneva, the mother-in-law wants to avoid. Throughout the whole Christmas novel, Kimberla Lawson Roby created a wonderful character of Alexis who proves herself to be a classy lady. She didn’t allowed anyone to take her out of character. Misery loves company and Alexis didn’t want no part of it. She also offer to help Courtney who is Alexis niece.

Then, I started to realized that Alexis just is too trustworthy. Alexis reminds the readers of the Angel on the top of a Christmas tree. Exceptionally, Alexis’ perfect nature didn’t disturb me at all. Alexis is my favorite character in this story. In the eyes of the readers, they may felt that Alexis forgave Geneva too rapidly. The character of Geneva is an evil mother in law. She said bad things about Alexis. Some of us might would take us at least a month to forgive a person who is hateful. Alexis forgives her immediately because that would a Christian would do. Perhaps it’s the Christmas prayer that Alexis wrote down in her journal. I’m tremendously sure the prayer empowered her through so many holiday obstacles. While under the attraction aroma of Kimberla Lawson Roby’s writing or the Chicago holiday air, many readers will accepts Alexis is a flawless woman. In other words, I enjoyed reading “A Christmas Prayer” along with the well developed characters. This is the first Christmas novel I’ve read this year. If I don’t read another one, I feel completely satisfied with this Christmas novel. I really going to read more works from this Author.

Rhonda created the well developed character of Marcus who fallen in love with Brooke since the first day several years ago, although due of the situations that she is dealing with. Brooke decided not to mix business with pleasure. With the blended of the drama from the past resurfacing then you realized there are the single heck of a story about love, faith and forgiveness.

Treat people likes you wants to be treated. When you start reading this story you will knows what I am talking about. I don’t blame Brooke for being upset but she allowing her past hurts prevented a second chance of love with a great guy likes Marcus. While reading “Give a Little Love”, you will root for Brooke to heal from her hurts and allows herself to fall in love with Marcus. Rhonda McKnight makes sure this Christmas Story, “Give A Little Love” a great book to read. This book deals with all kinds of life lesson situations with family members, love, betrayal, hurt and forgiveness. Sometimes people do use your kindness for weakness to get what they want or need. It doesn’t matter how it might make you feel they will use that to their advantage. I can’t wait to see how Marcus and Brooke lives will end up. I will definitely recommend this book by Rhonda McKnight and planning to read more works from this Author.

Behind The Closed Doors

You have heard the saying, If these walls could talk, what would they reveal? Gregory Beaufort, a prominent bishop who was sent to the affluent island of Bliss Haven twenty years ago, knows firsthand what it is like to live behind the walls of a dangerous secret – while simultaneously fighting to keep it from being unveiled to his family.
But when his youngest daughter, nineteen-year-old Asia Beaufort falls passionately in love with a boy from an impoverished background, their connection ignites a chain of events that force Gregory to face his ungodly past.
Is it worth holding on to a secret that could wipe out his marriage and the family he so dearly loves? Shattered Dreams is the first book in the Behind Closed Doors series and it is riddled with thought-provoking situations. Come meet a new slate of characters who will take you on a daring adventure.

Book Review About Shattered Dreams

H. H Fowler really bring to light about the concealed organization in the church in this three part series entitled “Behind Closed Doors”. His unique styles of writing fascinate the readers from the minute they start reading until the very end. In the beginning, we are introduced to Dallis and Asia, two of the Bishop’s daughters. Dallis is a sold out Christian – a very humble one, Asia perceives since her father, Gregory is a preacher, no one can barks order at her. After a regrettable situations lands the Gregory’s wife, Dana in the hospital, everything is getting ready to hit the fan as Izaiah – the newly installed youth Minister, starts to figure out the Bishop’s true motives of installing him as his Youth Pastor. With mystery of his own, the bishop controls everyone that is in his inner circle dangling close to the edge of it. This storyline is only the beginning of the drama

The drama continues between Bishop Gregory Beaufort and his youngest daughter, Asia. When tragedy strikes close to home, the only person who comes to Asia’s mind as the one responsible is her meddlesome father. This only adds to Gregory’s frustration as he is now facing one of the biggest decisions of his life. His marriage is in a precarious state and his other two daughters are stirring up trouble of their own. Gregory knows the ultimate sacrifice will have to be made if he expects his family to survive.
Poison Candy is the second book in the Behind Closed Doors series. For Gregory and several others who have had a part in this secret, it has been sweet going in, but once they get in too deep, they realize that the deadly venom of sin can destroy every godly thing in its path. Will it be too late for them to set their lives in order?

Book Review About Poison Candy

I love reading H H Fowler’s books, the characters are well developed and the story lines are well written with the guidance of the Holy Spirit that anoints his pen. I read the first of this series,and poison candy did not disappoint at all. “Poison Candy” was a continuation of a love story and a deadly unknown group who uses young boys as sex slaves, run by powerful individuals. The drama keeps the ball rolling between Bishop Gregory Beaufort and his youngest daughter, Asia. When tragedy comes down close to home, her own father is the only person comes to Asia’s mind as the one who is responsible.. This only adds to Gregory’s resentment as he is now dealing of the consequence with one of the biggest decisions of his life. His marriage is in a problematic state and his other two daughters are stirring up trouble of their own. Gregory experiences the eventual sacrifice will have to be made if he hopes for his family to survive. We all know that there is the possibility of corruptions in the church. For us to read about the corruptions in the Church brings more light to the problem that the folks in the Church are faced with. Gregory appears to be an evil monster in sheep cloth and bargain his way out. Although God keeps reaching to him proves that God still cares for him despite his disgusting mistakes.

This is truly a rollercoaster journey especially when Satan has you in bondages.

Your family becomes a tornado damages when you allows the temptation of lust for power and greed is exposed. The best thing by our mistakes that God is able to pull us out of that pit we are craving for. We thinks that our life is over through the mistakes that we made, although God is rewritten our story that we called life. I found not only “Poison Candy” but also “Shattered Dreams are melodramatic and mind- boggling on how we as Christian can be very fragile when we allows the love of money and power dominate God’s calling. Through the obstacles of evil, the strong of the faithful followers of Christ that are ready to fight all temptations shall stay genuine to the passage of serving the Lord. The twists and turns in the storyline makes it exceeding compelling to desires more. “Behind Closed Doors” Series gets more interesting and wonderfully created from this great author. The entire family members of Bishop Gregory Beaufort is in discomfort due to the facts that the Bishop sold his soul to evil. When you allows material things your main focus then you truly have forsaken the Word of God. Mr. Fowler has always done an excellent job in writing many of his series. And this series is even better that I am about to read “Unexpected Guest”.

Bishop Gregory Beaufort has disappeared without a trace and for three years, every effort to find him seems to only result in one dead end after another. Some members of Gregory’s family are starting to think that he is dead until one of his daughters briefly glimpses him in the back seat of a late-model Cadillac. It kicks off a twenty-one-day cat and mouse race against time between the police and Gregory’s captors.
Meanwhile, a dashing beau from the church Gregory once led, approaches Gregory’s wife, Dana, and eventually reveals his love for her. When even the police appear to believe Gregory might never be found, her hope wanes and Dana is vulnerable and unsuspecting of the beau’s true intentions, which are furtively linked to the infamous House of gods.
Dana and the rest of the Beauforts remain a constant target for a secret society that will stop at nothing to ensure every member of that family is six feet beneath the soil.

Book Review About Unexpected Guests

No ifs ands buts, I really enjoyed the full Behind Closed Doors series. I couldn’t stop reading this story from my tablet for the entire time of completing reading all three books, making it extremely difficult to attend to or focus on anything else due to the fact I would have had to stop reading. I was blow away at how engaged I was in those three books in the series. With my determination I was going to read the entire storyline in the short space of time in which I did. In the distinction to the extensive vocabulary to the plethora of emotions the books stirred up and even the powerful messages they imposed, I would definitely recommend these books to anyone that loves a good read and gripping enactments.

When The Vows Break Book Review

“When the Vows Break” is a gripping narrative about a pastor who doesn’t believe that the rules should apply to him. He is in a 3-year forbidden affair with a church member. When she decided to end the relationship to pursue a healthier relationship. The outline throughout in “When The Vows Breaks” was very realistic and should be read. Anyone who read and share this story, may be able to relates about how easy judgements are perceived in the Church community, which often results in division, where true believers would understand the importance of forgiveness of self and one another, just as Christ forgave us from the cross, what better example can we shall follow. I really enjoyed reading this great Christian Fiction Story that Janine De Coster created.

Our Christian Community’ s vision of marriage comes in many different forms nowadays. The one thing that is constant is you BOTH have agreed to forsake all others ~ although in reality do we know what that expressions signify? Disown all others means of course being with only your spouse but in addition to that it also means putting your mare and your spouse above everything else, except God of course. When you start to put things in front of your marriage you lose sight of the real purpose, to love and honor them forever. Were you being truthful when you entered into this union or were you being selfish?

The Character of Sidney Teal is the Pastor and Founder of Holy Word Holiness Church. Sidney has a beautiful wife, Olivia and three beautiful children and a very successful church. The Teals have worked hard at keeping up appearances although something has been feeling off in their marriage as of lately. That is because Sidney doesn’t practice what he preach to his Congregation. Olivia is catching on to her husband, Sidney’s behavior. Could it be that Pastor Teal is spending so much time at the church he is losing his connection with his wife or is there something else going on? Being a Pastor of a Church, should Sidney just have the upper hand on relationships or should just being human like the rest of us come into play? As a leader of the Church, Sidney need to be an example and be accountable for his actions.

Janine De Coster created an intensified Christian Fiction through the well developed characters. In my opinion, I believe that the readers just like me will go through frequent empathy while reading “When The Vows Break”. At one point I needed to stop reading to prevent from being angry. The readers will get drawn into the story line that they almost forget that they are reading a book, it feels more like a lifetime Christian fiction movie or a major blockbuster motion picture. Just like me, you are so symphonic with the characters and they are so relatable that you feel their pain. The writing in this novel due in progressions and keeps you right in the blends of the narrative and you are almost relieved when it comes to the conclusion that you can finally stop holding your breath. I really enjoy reading ” When The Vows Break” written by Janine De Coster. I am looking forward to read more by this great Author. Great job! I highly recommend everyone to read this book. You won’t be disappointed!
