top ten tuesday: recent 5-star reads

While the majority of my book reviews fall in the 4 to 4-1/2 star range, I still give out quite a few 5-star reviews. So today's Top Ten Tuesday topic was too good for me to resist--I knew I could put it together easily! Here are my ten most recent 5-star reviews.

1. The Goodbye Bride by Denise Hunter (review)
I love virtually everything Hunter writes, and her latest, The Goodbye Bride, was no different. If you love contemporary romance, then you need to add The Goodbye Bride to your TBR pile!

2. The Hearts We Mend by Kathryn Springer (review)
Featuring older protagonists, this is a second chance at love story, and it's so, so good! It also delivers some strong spiritual lessons without seeming at all preachy. It's a book to be savored!

3. Tying the Knot by Rob Green (review)
Probably the most surprising book on this list, Tying the Knot is a premarital workbook for couples to go through together. (No, I do not have anything to announce. I was asked to review the book, so I did, and it was good.)

4. And It Was Beautiful by Kara Tippetts (review)
And It Was Beautiful is a collection of essays from the late Kara Tippetts' blog, Mundane Faithfulness. It's a great look at faith, pain, and fear in the face of death.

5. Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey (review)
This book is perfect for lovers of romantic suspense! And be sure to come back later this week to see my mom's review--it was her pick for this month's reading challenge!

6. The Painter's Daughter by Julie Klassen (review)
When it comes to regency romance, there's no one better than Klassen. Her latest, The Painter's Daughter, features my all-time favorite trope: the marriage of convenience.

7. The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck (review)
I've already gushed about this book a couple times, so I won't go over it all again. Just read it. Really.

8. One Enchanted Christmas by Melissa Tagg (review)
This Christmas novella is simply enchanting (see what I did there?). If you haven't yet read any of Tagg's writing, this novella will give you a wonderful introduction to her.

9. The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson (review)
This take on the Rapunzel story is full of action, adventure, and romance. It's perfect for fairy tale lovers!

10. A Broken Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert (review)
I'm so glad this book made the cut because it is a simply fantastic read! Not often do I finish a book with tears streaming down my cheeks, but that's exactly what happened with A Broken Kind of Beautiful. It will forever have a place on my bookshelf.
