Book Review of Kate’s Dilemma by Sarah Holman!

Kate’s Dilemma (Kate's Case Files Book 3)

About:

Kate can’t stay with the team any longer. She has worked for too long to keep the walls around her heart and around her past to allow the team to tear them down now. She doesn’t think they can handle what is behind them; she’s not sure she can. Heading to Charleston with the team on one last case, she and Brian go undercover as brother and sister to find out if a young musician is profiting from illegal activity.

Patrick is going undercover as a summer student at the University of Charleston. He tries to befriend the sister of a suspected drug runner, but nothing is coming easily. The sister won’t trust him, leads keep drying up, and tension in the team is building. When things begin to fall apart, Patrick is convinced that he can fix things, but can he?

My Review

Genre: Fiction.


My Rating: 5 Stars.


Recommendation: Anyone over 13.


My favorite character/s: Brian is my favorite character in Kate's Dilemma, I loved how he's encouraging even he's had a rough life. He's a great character, I love how he's kind of a mentor to both Kate and Patrick. I think he's my favorite character in Kate's Dilemma.

My Verse for Brian is Matthew 5:5
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. King James Verison.



I'm not very sorry for Patrick (oh wait, he's still a favorite character, so I guess I do feel bad for him. Hmm. Anyway.). Who still hasn't learned to listen to Thomas... well maybe he did... I'm not totally sure... you have to read it to see what you think...

My Verse for Patrick is Galatians 6:1
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. King James Verison.

Kate is a favorite character too... So is Logan... And Kim... Oh, and Thomas... But I'll just do Brian (Since he won first place in my favorite characters in this book!) and Patrick (Since I feel bad for him, but I also feel bad for Kate, but OK.).


My thoughts: I love this book, I think it is my favorite book in the Kate's Case Files so far! I can't wait for more books from Sarah Holman!

My reviews for:
Kate's Innocence 
Kate's Capitol

Book review of Kate's Capitol by Sarah Holman!

Kate's Capitol (Kate's Case Files Book 2)
About:
Do the small compromises we make daily really hurt anyone or matter to God?
Kate’s first case as an FBI agent is nothing like she expected. Posing as an intern at the Texas Capitol, she finds herself spending more time behind the computer than she does figuring out the case. Is Representative Jason Ashbury guilty of a third degree felony or is one of his staff to blame? And how is she supposed to handle the effect Patrick has on her?
Patrick was looking forward to guiding Kate through her first case, instead he was assigned to Ashbruy’s home office in Tyler. He cannot figure out either the case or his relationship to Kate. Are Ashbury’s dedicated employees covering for him, or the instigators? Will Kate ever let him be her friend, or will she continue to push him away?

My Review


Genre: Fiction.


My Rating: 5 Stars.


Recommendation: Anyone over 13 because of slight violence.


My favorite character/s: Kate is more closed off from others than in the first book. I like Kate and feel bad for her as she struggles with her fears.

My Verse for Kate is Proverbs 15:13
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. King James Version.


Patrick is just as determined in this book to be Kate's friend as in the first book when he was trying to prove that Kate was innocent, now he's trying to break down the walls that Kate built around her heart.

My Verse for Patrick is Jeremiah 10:24
O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. King James Version.


My Thoughts: I don't normally read books that have anything to do with politics which made Kate's Capitol not only interesting, but it also showed some of what goes into politics.

P.S. Brian is in the running for favorite character, so we'll see if Patrick is a favorite in my review of Kate's Dilemma!

A Year with the Potters Spotlight

A Year with the Potters
In April they met new friends, in August they got a kitten, October they learned about Martin Luther, November brought a pet Black Widow, and January gave them a Biblical lesson in perseverance. What else is in store for the Potter family? For Amanda, Jackie, Emmy, Grace, and their parents, there's no such thing as an ordinary month! Not only that, they are always pulling their friends into their adventures too. Why is there a kitten creeping through shards of glass? What is he after? And why is there a jar hiding in the kitchen cupboard - with a spider living in it?

Book review of Kate's Innocence by Sarah Holman!

Kate’s Innocence (Kate’s Case Files Book 1)

About:

What would you do if you were accused of a crime you didn’t commit?

Kate watched as her campus was torn apart by bombs and now is being accused of perpetrating the crime. As the evidence quickly stacks up against her, she begins to lose hope that the truth will come to light. Even though the handsome FBI Agent, Patrick, has taken up her cause, will they be able to prove her innocence? Will God, who she neglected for so long, listen to her prayers for help?

Patrick is an agent with a very special team of agents. He wants to help Kate prove she is innocent, but as each new piece of evidence is revealed, that goal seems harder. He wonders why he feels so compelled to help her and so sure she is innocent despite the evidence. Will he be willing to put his job on the line to help her? Can he trust in God to make sure the truth will come out in the end?

My Review


Genre: Fiction.


My Rating: 5 Stars.


Recommendation: Anyone over 13 because of slight violence.


My favorite character/s: Patrick Connor is a pretty stubborn guy; I like how he is determined to prove that Kate is innocent.

My Verse for Patrick is Psalm 21:13
Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power. King James Version.


Kate is a hurting young woman and yet she is strong and I hope she keeps growing in her faith and walk with God as the series goes on.

My Verse for Kate is Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. King James Version.


My thoughts: I have read all but I think, maybe, two of Sarah Holman's books and I have liked each one of them. Her characters are believable, realistic and it's almost like you could see them when you read her books! And they have problems! (I know that sounds bad but it's not!) I've read a few books similar to Kate's Case Files and the characters are PERFECT! and when I'm reading I like to see characters grow. In their faith, attitude, walk with God, and even grow up, and Sarah Holman does just that with her books without making them perfect.

Scripture Sunday: Psalm 100

Psalm 100:4 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,     and his courts with praise!     Give thanks to him; bless his name! (ESV Bible.) ...
