Book review of "Researching the Heart" by author Olive Youngly

The story line of this book was easy to follow, yet it was intriguing enough that I looked forward to reading more. The main character Sylvia, a young, attractive, and strong-willed woman took this book from ordinary to extraordinary. Interactions between her and other characters, especially Dr. Jonathan Philip-Hankle were presented in creative but down to earth way.

The author had a way with words that made me as a reader to connect with the plot, the setting, the characters, and their lifestyle. My favorite line of Researching the Heart, which dictated the story, was: “Sometimes the things you fear are the best things in your entire life. Sometimes those things are your victories.”

I highly recommend this book.

Book review of Not Flowers, but Love by the author Krys Batts

Not Flowers, but Love has engaging content, easy to follow format and most importantly substance.  Descriptive language painting a creative and romance-filled picture simply drew me in and kept my attention all the way through. It is a beautiful story that proves love can happen at any time despite the circumstances. I especially enjoyed blended emotions presented in this work that are able to pull the reader’s heartstrings as well as to take him or her into the world of sharing a better and deeper emotions.

The main character Jamie is building a successful career while overcoming her painful past. She has no courage or will to ultimately be open to trusting and learning to love again. Yet she is forced to drift away from her path.

This is a well- written book; one that stays in the reader’s mind long after the last page has been turned. I definitely look forward to reading more books from this author.
