"Finding Sheba" and Some Of My Favorite Authors...

For years now I have enjoyed scanning the shelves of my local bookstore looking for some of my favorite Authors. I own just about every book they have ever written and I have read those book multiple times because I enjoy the stories so much.

Who are these amazing Authors, you ask? Let me name some of my top Authors for you.

1.     Annette Lyon
2.     H. B. Moore
3.     Sarah M. Eden
4.     Jennifer Ann Holt
5.     Rachel Ann Nunes
6.     Anita Stansfield
7.     Julie Klassen
8.     Jean Holbrook Mathews
9.     Frank Holdaway
10.  Gerald N. Lund
11.  Janette Oke
12.  Michelle Paige Holmes
13.  Krista Lynne Jensen.

Of course I am such a huge reader that this in no way includes all of my favorite authors but these are definitely at the top of my list. (Smile)
 
Anyhow, I've decided that not only will I use my writing blog to record my WRITING journey but also my READING journey as well.

The Gem I just read was a Novel written by H.B. Moore called "Finding Sheba". I can not even begin to tell you what an amazing author Heather is! Truly! She is one of my favorites for a reason, it is also why she is at the top of my list when I'm looking for new book to read. Her newest book does not disappoint. The thing you need to know about Heathers books, or at least a good majority of them, is that they are based on scriptural characters from the past. She does an amazing amount of research getting her characters just right and it shows in her writing. These books are fascinating as well as addicting.

“Finding Sheba”  is no different.  It is a suspenseful romantic thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat while you flip page after to find out what will happen next. Although this book is written from multiple views, it is interesting to learn everyone’s stories and see them all come together in the end. I LOVED how you get so sucked in that it is very hard to put down, which is what killed me about this book because I was having a hard time finding the time to read it. The bible references and being able to learn about the Queen of Sheba just added to the intrigue of the book. Before this book I have to admit, I didn’t know much about her and now… I find her simply fascinating.
 
So if you haven't read this book already, I recommend you go pick it up as soon as possible and then set some time aside to read it. Trust me when I say you will not want to put it down!

Hope you are all being successful with your own writing Journeys as well as your reading ones.
Until the next time.
