Live Smart! Book Review #2

My second Bethany House Book Review was a non-fiction this time! Live smart by Dan Dumas. In this book Dumas teaches us about following God's way and not our own. He explains very well how sometimes we think we know whats best but when honest with ourselves: we all know God has the better plan! 

 I love how just by reading his book you can tell he's excited about what he wants to say. There are times when he seems to go a little overboard with the explanation or might continue on a topic for too long. So for me it got a kind of hard to read at times.  
 Dumas really has a heart for people to understand this an in all words, Live Smart! I would recommend this to anyone who hasn't read books like this before. I've grown up reading on these sort of topics so it was kind of the same thing said in a different way. If you want the truth an honesty about choosing God's way, than you should read this book! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for my honest review. I would recommend "Live Smart!" to anyone who hasn't read a lot about giving your life to God. It's a good uplifting book though that could help anyone who is struggling with trusting God.

Dressed for Death

Well this is my very first book review for Bethany House! I am very excited about it and hope this helps out anyone who is looking to read a good novel! 

Dressed for Death is a very captivating mystery written by Julianna Deering. I love reading mysteries because they're so easy to get caught up in. Deering sets this up in such a way that you don't see what's coming and to the very last chapter you still get surprised! 
   What made this one even more interesting was that she added a bit of romance which is something that most mysteries don't have. I also like the way she set this story in a regency era.  
   Deering has a little bit of everyone, from the married couple all the way to a young man who finds love a little gross. One thing I thought was a little odd was some of the men were quoting Jane Austin's books. It didn't seem as realistic but then again this is a different era. 
   All together I thought it was a very good book and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good mystery/romance novel. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for my honest review. I would definitely recommend "Dressed for Death" to anyone who loves a good mystery.
