WITNESS IN THE DARK BY LYNNE LARSON. This was a quick read. It only took me about three hours. I loved the beginning. It really hooked me, but then we went back in time, a couple of days before the first chapter. I understand why it happened but felt like it took too long to get to the present. Once we continued on in the story, it was a good read. The threads planted from the beginning wove through the story. The characters are well developed and the setting is engaging. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a suspense novel with a religious overtone.

PETTICOAT SPY by Carol Warburton

PETTICOAT SPY by Carol Warburton. I love learning about this era. I love the courage, strength, and conviction that everyone had during this time. This story did a great job showing the risks some Patriot's took. The characters were developed well and you feel drawn too them. However, I expected a little more interaction between Abby and Gideon. It was a great story that anyone would love, especially a history buff. I highly recommend it.

Colonial Massachusetts, 1775
Abigail Stowell is a rarity for her time. The comely young woman is educated, outspoken, and attuned to the charged political climate around her. She is a staunch Patriot. In short, she is a rebel. So when Gideon Whitlock, and avowed Tory, rides into her village, Abby is not only put off by his politics and arrogance but is also annoyed by her undeniable attraction to him.
When she observes a clandestine meeting between her Patriot father and Gideon, Abby soon realizes that in a world divided by loyalties, not everything is as it seems. Soon she is drawn deeper into political intrigue than she ever dreamed possible. And just as feelings begin to heat up between Abby and Gideon, the shot heard round the world ignites the beginning of war between the colonists and the British redcoats. There is no time for hesitation, and Abby finds herself thrust into a world of intrigue, treachery, and terror. Lives hang in the balance, and Abby will stop at nothing to support the Patriot movement—but will her allegiance to the cause mean losing the man she loves?

THE LADY OF THE LAKES by Josi S Kilpack. This was a very fun read once I was able to get into it. I have family currently in Scotland so it was fun read about places that I've heard about from them.  It was a fascinating story to see how his writing career moved forward. I loved seeing Scott's growth through the entire time as well. It is a wonderful read for anyone who loves historical fiction and romance. I highly recommend it.

One is his first love.
The other is his best love.
Which will be Walter’s true love?
Walter Scott has three passions: Scotland, poetry, and Mina Stuart. Though she is young and they are from different stations in society, Walter is certain their love is meant to be. For years, he has courted her through love letters. She is the sunshine of his soul. Though Mina shares Walter’s love of literature and romantic temperament, it’s hard for her to know if she truly loves him or if she has only been dazzled by his flattery. When she meets the handsome and charming William Forbes, her heart is challenged. Who will she choose? But as every poet knows, “the course of true love never did run smooth,” and on a windy morning in the lake country, Walter meets Charlotte. At twenty-six, Charlotte Carpenter believes she will never find love. After all, she is a Catholic-born Frenchwoman living in London with a family history shadowed by scandal. Though quiet, practical, and determined to live a life of independence, her heart longs for someone to love her and a place to call home. Passion and promises collide as Walter, Mina, and Charlotte must each decide the course for their futures. What are they each willing to risk to find love and be loved in return?
