She's sure happiness awaits her, even if it won't--can't--come from widowed shop doctor Flynn Gallagher. Yes, he made her his assistant, but she's not foolish enough to fall for the man all the eligible, wealthy female passengers admire.

Faith Glen, Massachusetts, is worlds away from the poverty Bridget knew in Ireland. And William Black couldn't be more different from her faithless ex-fiance.

A traumatic childhood closed Cam off to any dreams of family life. Yet somehow his lovely housekeeper and her child have opened his heart again. When the unthinkable occurs, it will take their faith to reach a new future together.

Fitzgerald Bay Series 2012
Book 1: The Lawman's Legacy by Shirlee McCoy
Amazon
Captain Douglas Fitzgerald has found the woman he believes is his soul mate, obviously she don’t. When a nanny is found dead and that very woman is at the scene they are thrown together. She is holding something back from Douglas and the man who keeps shooting at her is proof of that. How can he get the woman of his dreams to trust him?

Merry O’leary has a secret life. If she didn’t have to protect four year old Tyler above all else she could see herself settling down for good in Fitzgerald Bay. Maybe even settling down with a handsome police captain. Police. Even more reason to stay away from him unless she wants to lose everything she cares about, Tyler. Time to leave town again and start over if only she can get away from the eyes of the lawman. If only she could learn to really trust and allow him to share her burden.

What a great start to this exciting Love Inspired series. Book one starts with the murder of a nanny. A nanny who worked for a Fitzgerald no less. This quiet town is buzzing with unrest and whispers that maybe it was a Fitzgerald who committed the crime. This family puts God first and family second so they will do all they can to quiet the whispers and prove the rumor mongers wrong. The Rookie’s Assignment is book two in this series. You will definitely want to read them in order as each key to the murder slowly unfolds in each book.
Book 2: The Rookie's Assignment by Valerie Hansen
Amazon
Keira Fitzgerald is the youngest of the Fitzgerald clan. And a rookie on the police force. She wants to be the best she can but it’s tough when your dad and brothers on the force still see you as a little girl. When a newcomer joins in to help solve Olivia Henry’s murder case Keira gets to partner with him, someone who isn’t family and teaches her to be better at her job. Now if she could just remember to focus on her job instead of her handsome partner.

Detective Nick Delfino is good at his job. He knows that when people find out why he is really there that they immediately dislike him but that’s okay. He’s a loner and don’t need anyone. Well he didn’t think he did until he finds himself struggling with wanting to tell his beautiful new partner who he really is, even though she’ll hate him for it afterward.

This second book takes us on another adventure as trouble follows Nick to Fiztgerald Bay. They don’t seem to get any closer to solving the murder or clearing Charles Fitzgerald of the crime but it seems they have a new crime to solve. We get a better glimpse into some of the other characters lives as well and their stories are going to be told in the next books. The third book in this Love Inspired series is The Detective’s Daughter by Rachelle McCalla. You’ll want to read these in order to get all the ground work down and maybe even become a sleuth yourself and figure out why Olivia was murdered and by who.
Book 3: The Detective's Secret Daughter by Rachelle McCalla
Amazon
Owen Fitzgerald loves his family and his town. As a police officer life has been a bit hectic lately. The murder of a nanny who was employed by his brother Charles has the town on edge and the Fitzgerald’s in the spotlight. On top of all that the one gal he ever loved has returned to town. Rumors have it that her daughter is Hank Monroe’s, a fellow officer. Seems the rumors may not have been what they seemed to be though.

Victoria Evans had left Fitzgerald Bay ten years ago. After her father had killed a Fitzgerald while driving drunk she was whisked away by her aunt. When she found out she was pregnant with Paige, she stayed away. Her mother always taught her the truth would set her free, so it was time for her to tell the truth to Paige's father. When her business is suddenly under attack she is thrown back into Owen’s path. Can the truth bring them back together after a decade? Or will her mysterious tormenter pull them apart forever?

This is the third book in this series. Each book brings new challenges to the Fitzgerald family. Rachelle continues to add adventure and mystery to the series. A local lawyer wants to oust them from their offices and take over the town himself, accusing Charles of murder and his family of covering it up. They only make baby steps in each book to find who murdered Olivia Henry but each books takes huge strides in bringing love into one of the Fitzgerald’s lives. The story continues in Book four with The Widow’s Protector by Stephanie Newton. You’ll want to be sure and start with book one to have the story unfold in the order they are written.
Book 4: The Widow's Protector by Stephanie Newton
Amazon
Fiona Fitzgerald Cobb has faith and family to help her through the tough times. Through the past two years after her husband Jimmy was killed in an arsonists fire. Helping her to heal while being a mom to Sean and running her store, The Reading Nook. And then there was always her best friend, Hunter Reece. He was always there for her too, when tough times hit Fiona realizes how much she has depended on Hunter.

Hunter has always cared for Fiona. After Jimmy died he promised to always watch over her and protect her. Always telling himself they were only good friends and that’s all they’d ever be, maybe someday he’d believe it. When the arson attacks start up again and they seem to be aimed at Fiona, Hunter is more determined than ever to find the culprit.

The series continues with more excitement, suspense and romance. And suspects. Always plenty of suspects. Olivia’s murder still isn’t solved and with all these side incidents going on they aren’t making much progress towards finding the person. One point that really stood out to me while reading this book is that it’s so easy for us to accuse and hang someone from a little bit of information and yet without knowing the whole story. We do that too often in real life as well. An excellent addition to the series. Book five is The Black Sheep’s Redemption by Lynette Eason.
Book 5: The Blacks Sheep's Redemption by Lynette Eason
Amazon
Dr. Charles Fitzgerald is having a rough patch in his life. His nanny was murdered, he is a suspect, his business has slowed to a crawl because of the accusations and he can’t find help with his two year old twins as no one wants to work for him. Has God completely abandoned him?

Demi Taylor, well if that’s even her name, she was badly beaten and lost her memory. No one knows her, no one claimed her. She chose to come to Fitzgerald Bay and she met Fiona Fitzgerald. With Fiona’s help she quickly had a job as a nanny. A nanny for a man the town seemed to consider a murderer. She may not know who she is but she trusted her instincts and they told her that Charles was trustworthy.

The series continues to build. Lynette brings out the emotions of her characters. The fears Demi has of the dark but not knowing why. It really struck me how Charles is treated. How quickly people he has known all his life have turned on him. We are quick to do this in real life as well, let the gossip mongers steer our opinions. This book has a few surprises that I was not anticipating at all. Looking forward to the last book in the series to see all the loose ends pulled together and the murderer caught in The Deputy’s Duty by Terri Reed.
Book 6: The Deputy's Duty by Terri Reed 
Amazon
Deputy Chief Ryan Fitzgerald is the oldest of the clan. The protector who watches over his family and doesn't have time for a relationship, especially with the pesky reporter who's been in town for six months trying to help solve her cousins murder. That's his job. When Ryan finds he's best off taking Meghan Henry with him instead of having her follow him...he finds another person he wants to protect.

Meghan’s last relation had been taken from her when Olivia was murdered and she was determined to get justice for her cousin. She receives a letter with information that rocks her world along with Ryan’s. After spending time with the handsome deputy she finds he is not like her cruel ex-husband, quite the opposite. When it comes down to a major crossroads in her life Meghan must choose between Ryan or her cousin’s last wish. Can God give her both of her desires?

Terri ties all the loose ends together to complete this exciting series. Ryan and Meghan have villains to face along with the past. And it seems their query is always two steps ahead of them, causing them to spend more time together. Some great twists and turns in this last book along with letting people know some hard truths about the past so that one family member can be set free from their secret burden.

Bonus Book: Enduring Love by Jillian Hart

Texas Twins Series 2012 
Book 1: Her Surprise Sister by Marta Perry
Violet Colby was minding her own business while sitting in a coffee shop when a man came up to her acting as if he knew her. One thing led to another and she soon was face to face with Maddie Wallace...a woman who looked identical to her. The two soon find out they are twins and the journey begins to find out what happened. Maddie’s dad is out of the country and can’t be reached and Violet’s mom is in a coma. Why the secrets and separation?

Landon Derringer had promised Maddie’s father and brothers he would protect her while they were gone. He had failed his own sister but wouldn’t fail Maddie. As identical as the two women were, Landon found himself seeing how different they were on the inside. As the mystery of their separation grows, so does his protective nature. He soon finds himself watching over both of them.

This was such a great story and the beginning of what seems to be an exciting series. We meet the first of the characters in this book and the beginning of the mystery. The people who can solve the mystery are not around to answer questions. The next book is Maddie’s story, Mirror Image Bride by Barbara McMahon, Book 3 is Carbon Copy Cowboy by Arlene James, 4 is Look-Alike Lawman by Glynna Kaye, 5 is The Soldier’s Newfound Family by Kathryn Springer and the final book will come out in December, Reunited for the Holidays by Jillian Hart. I’m looking forward to the rest of the stories and seeing the puzzle pieces come together.
**Received through NetGalley for review
Book 2: Mirror Image Bride by Barbara McMahon
Maddie Wallace has been living at the Colby Ranch since meeting her twin sister, Violet Colby, a few short weeks earlier. She may be a city girl but she’s quickly learning to love the peace, quiet and even the smells of the country here in Grasslands, Texas. Her new challenge is to be the best nanny for young Darcy that she can be. Or is the challenge to get to know the handsome father, Ty Garland?

Ty has been working for the Colby’s for eight years now. He once had dreams of owning his own spread but they died along with his marriage to Brittany. When out of nowhere he finds that his ex-wife is dead and she left a daughter behind, his daughter, life changes in the blink of an eye. When Violet offers her sister to watch Darcy all he can see is Brittany all over. Someone wearing dress pants and open toed shoes on a ranch. Not someone who would be staying around long. First impressions can be very misleading though as Ty finds out.

We get to revisit with Violet and Landon from Her Surprise Sister and get small glimpses of Jack Colby who we learn more about in book 3: Carbon Copy Cowboy. Belle Colby is still in a coma and Brian Wallace is still MIA on a mission trip. An exciting series so far with four more books to follow. I always enjoy these Love Inspired multi-author series and it’s very impressive how six different authors can come together and each of their individual books connect into one great story.
Book 3: Carbon Copy Cowboy by Arlene James
Jack Colby was never quite satisfied that he didn’t know more of his past. Who was his father? Did he have other relatives? But his mom, Belle, refused to answer. On the final day he asked they argued and she took off on her horse, ended up being thrown and has been in a coma ever since. Jack has carried the guilt and blame for that day. Refusing to look for the past didn’t work when his new sister showed up and he found out about his twin brother. The last thing he needed was the beautiful blonde who was in a car wreck with no money, nowhere to go and no memories of who she is or where she came from.

"Kendra" as she was named by a young girl in the hospital, was frustrated not remembering but she knew she had faith and also that she wanted to help Jack find peace in his life. Only the moody handsome cowboy just became more distressed with each failure to find information. Worse yet she was falling for him and knew she couldn't, not without knowing who might be out there waiting for her to come home. A fiance or worse yet….a husband.

In this third book of the series we still have a missing father and a comatose mother. Jack seems to take on all the anger and guilt for everyone along with feeling inadequate every time he hears about his twin brother, Grayson the undercover cop. Not to mention some mystery person leaving Bibles with each twin and a mysterious note along with them. The fourth book, Look Alike Lawmen, introduces us to Grayson and maybe more answers to their past. A really enjoyable series that makes it hard to put the book down.
Book 4: Look-Alike Lawman by Glynna Kaye
Grayson Wallace did not need a six year old looking at him like he was someone special. He’d already experienced getting attached to a kid and having to let him go. Worse yet was Cory Lopez’s mother, he best keep his distance. He had enough on his plate looking for his missing father, waiting to meet his comatose mother and getting use to the idea of having an identical twin brother he never knew he had. Nope didn’t need any extra burdens.

Elise did not need another man in her or Cory’s life but of all things definitely not another lawman. She knew enough about that life after being married to Duke and living through him being killed on the job. Only she did need help with Cory acting up at school and Gray had offered to mentor him. Who knew it would be hard to push him away once he got his foot inside her door and maybe the man himself had touched her heart.

In this fourth book of the series we meet Grayson, who is Jack’s twin. He just finished his first successful undercover mission and it looked like he would be promoted soon. Only he finds himself torn between the law enforcement work he loves and Elise. Many of the side stories continue in Grasslands and not much progress on the parent front. Although they are more concerned about their missing father. Glynna adds a touch of her own book series by having Elise come from the fictional mountain town of Canyon Springs in the mountains of Arizona.

Book 5 introduces us to Carter Wallace who is a half brother to the twins in The Soldier’s Newfound Family. An exciting series that has the next book begging to be read. But alas, reviews must be written first.
 Book 5: The Soldier's Newfound Family  Kathryn Springer 
Carter Wallace, the youngest and only one who isn’t Belle’s blood, has returned from overseas. He carried a lot more than his US Marines duffel home with him, he had a load-full of guilt. Even though he may have saved three men, he wasn’t able to save his best friend, Rob. He had promised him to check on Savanna when he returned to Texas. He would do what he could to help his friend’s widow. And face all the changes in his family. A family he never felt very close to.

Savanna Blackmore was in quite a situation. Widowed, being evicted and now told by her doctor that the baby she carried was fine but she needed to be off her feet more. Her only option was to take up the offer from Carter, to go stay at his sister’s ranch in Grasslands. She could get use to going from her lonely life to this boisterous family but she couldn’t intrude for long with all their own family issues going on. And if she was around Carter much longer she might fall for him. Or was it already too late for that?

This has been such an exciting series. Each of the five authors so far has added so much to each of their characters and the story. I’m sure that Jillian Hart will pull it all together in Reunited for the Holidays. We have a mysterious church secretary, Bibles and apology notes popping up, missing dad, comatose mom and cute kids and critters. I would advise to start with book one in this series so you get the full picture from the beginning. It has really built up a great mystery for this last book to bring out.
Book 6: Reunited for the Holidays by Jillian Hart 
Brian Wallace finally returns to his home in Fort Worth. Due to unforeseen circumstances he was not able to contact his family. In fact, he was through such a traumatic time that he has realized he has been given a precious second chance at life. At least with his three children. There will always be a hole in his heart for the other three he lost forever….or did he? Seems there has been quite a few changes in the six months he’s been gone.

Belle Colby has been in a coma for six months. Nothing like waking up and seeing two of her children for the first time in twenty-five years. Add to that the fact all of them have found their soul mates. But nothing tops the moment when the one man she never planned to see again in her life walks into her room at the convalescent home. And how quickly her heart recognizes him.

This was a really good series with enough loose ends to keep you coming back to read the next book. Jillian Hart pulls together all the loose ends from the previous five books to give the readers closure. I found it tough to leave the Wallace/Colby clan and Grasslands, Texas, the characters were all written so well and pulled the reader into their world. In this final book we see how several of our characters have to face their past and forgive themselves and others so they can move ahead to the future and good things that God has planned for them.

Texas K-9 Unit Series 2013
Texas K-9 Unit:
 These lawmen solve the toughest cases with the help of their brave canine partners
Book 1: Tracking Justice 
Amazon
Police Detective Austin Black and his long eared partner, Justice, have a job to do. Sometimes it ends happy but not always. They work in search and rescue and just received another call, a boy gone missing. Austin could only pray it would turn out to be one of the happy endings.

Eva Billows was taught not to trust anyone but God and herself. When her son Brady goes missing, she isn’t going to trust anyone to find him without her. Especially considering the police already failed her by never finding who murdered her parents. And she definitely was not going to let her heart believe that some men were good, was she?

The first book in this new Love Inspired Suspense series definitely has me wanting to read the next five books. As in all series some of the mystery is solved in the first book and love is found but there are still some more bad guys out there to be caught. Looking forward to the next book in this series; Detection Mission by Margaret Daley.

Book 4: Explosive Secrets by Valerie Hansen

And Holly is stubbornly determined to give the townspeople, the children...and even gruff sheriff mason Wright...the happy families they deserve.

How can anyone so petite have so much gumption? Watching Holly rally her young charges wins Mason’s admiration--and reminds him of his own failures. No matter what Holly or the orphan boy Liam think, Mason’s no hero and he doesn’t merit a second chance. Can Holly’s faith, Liam’s trust and God’s grace open Mason’s heart to love’s greatest lesson?
Book 2: The Marriage Barter by Christine Johnson
Mission: Children 
Rounding up a gaggle of orphans isn't Wyatt Reed's specialty. Still, the bounty hunter is being paid handsomely to bring these children from Evans Grove to the next town. And then he sets eyes on one pig-tailed  pint-sized complication, and the beautiful widow who needs his help.

Charlotte Miller's marriage lacked love, but at least it gave her the right to adopt little Sasha. Now without a husband, she can't be a mother. Wyatt agrees to be her groom-for-hire—only until Sasha is hers. But the man who couldn't wait to leave town is finding unexpected reasons to stay…and glimpsing a future surpassing any fortune he's known.
Book 3: The Baby Compromise by Linda Ford
A Bundle of Complications Groomed for high society, Rebecca Sterling now has a new mission-to help the orphans coming to Evans Grove. Yet just before she's due to return to New York, she faces two unexpected challenges. There's the tiny infant abandoned on her orphanage steps...and the big, gruff cowboy who found him. 

Colton Hayes knows nothing about babies and even less about pampered socialites. But as he and Rebecca work together to watch over little Gabriel, he comes to care deeply for them both. What can a rough-and-ready cowboy offer a woman made for city living? Except, perhaps, the dream dearest to both their hearts-a family built on faith and love.
