My personal Rating-

While the Bella series is not my favorite of Miss Janice’s many books and series, it was an important series to her writing career and I did mostly like them. Like in that original series, there are some comments or hints that I’m not overall thrilled with since they are married and like to kiss. This novella still had the classic humor & Spiritual Content that every Janice Thompson book has, though, so that was great! 😊


See y’all on Friday with a new review!

My personal Rating-

I enjoyed reading this book. It felt more suspenseful than previous books by Sandra Orchard. I found the adoption parts interesting, but it did get a bit much in other content for my tastes. Not my favorite by this author, but still a good suspense!
