Review: Love Takes Flight by Lee Carver; Undercover Cowboy by Lisa Harris

Volunteering in the Amazon to escape a broken heart, American R.N. Camille Ringold fears she has lost the chance to be married to a doctor and live well in suburbia. Serving two weeks with missionaries living out a sacred calling, she considers whether a more meaningful life might be hers.

When the Wings of Help plane is hijacked, she and missionary pilot Luke Strong escape into the jungle. Aided by a river village, they recover the plane, but she may be fired for returning to the U.S. late. Two weeks become four when she chooses to care for Luke through his malaria. Priorities change as experiences of faith mount. Where is the intersection of God’s will and her selfish desires?

Review: I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this book. I’ve read a few things by Ms. Carver and enjoyed them, so I started the story, hoping it would be good since I hadn’t read a missionary romance before. It exceeded my expectations. I went to bed late because I was reading, and I spent all morning the next day finishing the book because I wanted to know how the story ended. Each chapter showed me parts of the Amazonas, and how much most missionaries love what they do. I highly recommend Love Takes Flight. It’s an excellently written story.

Rating: 4 roses


Pinkerton detective Cole Ramsey has been hired to investigate a rancher suspected of sabotaging his neighbor’s property. But Cole’s investigation might be compromised when he falls for Abigail Covington, the rancher’s daughter. An inspirational Christmas novella.

Review: I love romances involving cowboys. First, every one I’ve ever read has a hunky, to-die-for cowboy as the hero. Second, I’m a pushover for a good romance. Undercover Cowboy fulfilled both of these and added a measure of suspense/mystery that kept me guessing to the end. While this wasn’t a fast-paced, gotta-read-it-tonight story, it kept me interested from beginning to end with unusual circumstances, uncertain relationships, and great writing.
