The Judgement Stone by Robert Liparulo -CFBA Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
The Judgment Stone
Thomas Nelson (May 14, 2013)
Robert Liparulo


Former journalist Robert Liparulo is the best-selling author of the thrillers Comes a Horseman, Germ, Deadfall, Deadlock, and The 13th Tribe, as well as The Dreamhouse Kings, an action-adventure series for young adults. He contributed a short story to James Patterson’s Thriller, and an essay about Thomas Perry’s The Butcher’s Boy to Thrillers: 100 Must Reads, edited by David Morrell and Hank Wagner. He is currently working on the sequel to The 13th Tribe, as well writing an original screenplay with director Andrew Davis (The Fugitive).

When not writing, Liparulo loves to read, watch (and analyze) movies, scuba dive, swim, hike, and travel. He lives in Monument, Colorado, with his wife Jodi and four children: Melanie, Matthew, Anthony, and Isabella.


What if praying became a curse instead of a blessing?

Former Army Ranger Jagger Baird thought he had his hands full with the Tribe—the band of immortal vigilantes fighting to regain God’s grace by killing those opposed to Him. But that was before he encountered the ruthless group of immortals called the Clan. The Clan is after a prize that would give them unimaginable power—a piece of the Ten Commandments known as the Judgment Stone.

Those who touch the Stone can see into the spiritual world: angelic warriors, treacherous demons, and the blue threads of light that signal the presence of believers in communion with God.

By following the blue beam radiating from those closest to God, the Clan plans to locate His most passionate followers and destroy them.

Jagger quickly realizes his high-tech gadgetry and training are no match for these merciless immortals. But how can he defeat an enemy who hunts believers through their prayers . . . and won’t stop until they’ve annihilated all those close to Him?

In this high-action thriller, best-selling author Robert Liparulo examines the raging battle between good and evil on earth . . . and beyond.

If you would like to read the first chapter of The Judgment Stone, go HERE.

My thoughts:  This was not a book I would ordinarily have picked up.  Not my style, and just not something I normally read.  However, I am very glad that I was able to review this book as I really did like it!  I am not normally into sci fi or anything that is quite like this.  I loved learning about Jagger and the descriptions of the angels/demons in this book.  I would have to say that I enjoyed this book!  It was a slower read for me than some of the other Christian fiction that I normally read, but it was well worth it!

When a band of runaway slaves brings Union-loyal Beth Bumgartner a wounded Confederate soldier named Joe, it is the catalyst that pushes her to defy her pacifist parents and become a nurse during the Battle of Antietam.

Her mother's mysterious goodbye gift is filled with quilt blocks that bring comfort to Beth during the hard days and lonely nights, but as she sews each block, she realizes there is a hidden message of faith within the pattern that encourages and sustains her. Reunited with Joe, Beth learns his secret and puts the quilt's message to its greatest test—but can betrayal be forgiven?

Gluten Free Cherry Slices Recipe

This recipe is one that my mom got from a friend that she used to make for us to eat for breakfast on Sunday mornings.  I loved it growing up and so knew that I was going to have to develop a gluten free version of it to enjoy as well.  So now you get to share in the goodness with me by trying out this delicious gluten free version of the cherry slices!
It really is a simple recipe that tastes much more complicated.
  • 1 c. butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1-3/4 c. sugar(I used 2 tsp stevia)
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 c. gluten free flour blend --best if you have fresh ground brown rice and sorghum flours
  • 1/2 c. fresh ground oat flour-- from oat groats
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can cherry pie filling(or a 16 ounce jar of your own pie filling)
Wondermill grinds great grains.
Grind your needed flours: brown rice, sorghum, and oat.
Ground flour.
Flour ground and ready for mixing.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a jelly roll pan.
Combine the butter, sugar, flour, vanilla, baking powder, and eggs in a medium bowl.
Beat until fluffy.  Dough will be thick
Dough is ready to work with
The dough will be thick when mixed thoroughly.
Spread half of dough on greased jelly roll pan.
Spread dough on pan.
Spread half of the dough onto the greased jelly roll pan.
Spread the cherry pie filling on top of the dough.
Top with the remaining dough by spoonfuls. 
Top with dough.
Spread the cherry filling onto the first layer of dough and top with spoonfuls of dough.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until bars are slightly brown on the top.
Baked and cooling.
The cherry slices are done. The gluten free flour browns more than normal flours but tastes wonderful!
Let cool for 10-15 minutes.  Cut into bars and serve.
Makes a great breakfast and keeps well in the refrigerator.  Due to the fresh ground gluten free flours I would not leave this out on the counter for very long or it will mold.

Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade -Book Review CFBA

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Undeniably Yours
Bethany House Publishers (May 1, 2013)
Becky Wade


During her childhood in California, Becky frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She's been a fan of all things romantic ever since.

Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky's passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances for the general market, put her career on hold for many years to care for her kids, and eventually returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. Her first contemporary Christian romance, My Stubborn Heart, has been named a finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA Award. Her newest release, Undeniably Yours, is available now.

These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.


When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted--more interested in art than in oil--she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father's empire.

The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father's thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.

Bo's determined to resent the woman who's decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them--her wealth, his unworthiness, her family's outrage--and earn the right to love her.

But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their love--and their belief that God can work through every circumstance--survive?

If you would like to read the first chapter of Undeniably Yours, go HERE.

My thoughts:  Confession- When I first started reading this book I thought it was going to be all a love story with no suspense or mystery involved.  Boy was I wrong!  I love a good book with lots of suspense and mystery and this one had it all plus some love thrown in!  Definitely a good read!  I started reading this book while I was waiting for some testing to be done and finished it in the bath last night.  Yeap it was that good that I just really didn't want to stop reading it!  Highly recommend you pick up a copy of this book and give it a  read.  You will be pleasantly surprised and fall in love like I did!

Follow the Heart by Kaye Dacus -CFBA book review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Follow the Heart
B&H Books (May 1, 2013)
Kaye Dacus


Humor, Hope, and Happily Ever Afters! Kaye Dacus is the author of humorous, hope-filled contemporary and historical romances with Barbour Publishing, Harvest House Publishers, and B&H Publishing. She holds a Master of Arts in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University, is a former Vice President of American Christian Fiction Writers, and currently serves as President of Middle Tennessee Christian Writers. Kaye lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where she is a full-time academic advisor and part-time college composition instructor for Bethel University.

Kaye Dacus (KAY DAY-cuss) is an author and educator who has been writing fiction for more than twenty years. A former Vice President of American Christian Fiction Writers, Kaye enjoys being an active ACFW member and the fellowship and community of hundreds of other writers from across the country and around the world that she finds there. She currently serves as President of Middle Tennessee Christian Writers, which she co-founded in 2003 with three other writers. Each month, she teaches a two-hour workshop on an aspect of the craft of writing at the MTCW monthly meeting. Kaye lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where she is an academic advisor and English Composition instructor for Bethel University.


Set during the Industrial Revolution and the Great Exhibition of 1851, Follow the Heart is a “sitting-room romance” with the feel of a Regency-era novel but the fashions and technological advances of the mid-Victorian age.

Kate and Christopher Dearing’s lives turn upside down when their father loses everything in a railroad land speculation. The siblings are shipped off to their mother’s brother in England with one edict: marry money.

At twenty-seven years old, Kate has the stigma of being passed over by eligible men many times—and that was before she had no dowry. Christopher would like nothing better than to make his own way in the world; and with a law degree and expertise in the burgeoning railroad industry, he was primed to do just that—in America.

Though their uncle tries to ensure Kate and Christopher find matrimonial prospects only among the highest echelon of British society, their attentions stray to a gardener and a governess.

While Christopher has options that would enable him to lay his affections where he chooses, he cannot let the burden of their family’s finances crush his sister. Trying to push her feelings for the handsome—but not wealthy— gardener aside, Kate’s prospects brighten when a wealthy viscount shows interest in her. But is marrying for the financial security of her family the right thing to do, when her heart is telling her she’s making a mistake?

Mandates . . . money . . . matrimony. Who will follow the heart?

If you would like to read the first chapter of >Follow the Heart, go HERE

My thoughts:  I fell in total love with this book.  I love books set in England as I love envisioning the scenery and what it is like as my grandma came from England.  This book was wonderful as you're wondering if Kate will give up true love for her family or if she'll choose her own happiness over theirs.  Definitely recommend this book for anyone wanting a good read!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

I remember my mom making this cake often when I was young and have longed to get to eat it again.  I finally got my chance tonight when I recreated it!  So delicious.  I made mine a bit healthier but it is still not one that is so healthy you can eat the whole thing!  Well you could, but with my luck I'd gain about 20 pounds.
I think this is a fairly simple recipe to follow.  I have no clue where the original recipe came from, but this one was passed to me from my mother and made gluten free/process sugar free/dairy free by me!
  • 2 cups gluten free flour blend(you can find my blend HERE)--I grind the brown rice and sorghum with my wondermill!
  • My batch of gluten free flour blend.  I use freshly ground brown rice and sorghum flours plus some cornstarch and tapioca flour as well as a bit of guar gum.

  • 1-1/2 cups finely ground demerara sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter(the one I use is just peanuts ground up, nothing added)
  • 1 cup water warm
  • 2 large farm fresh eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk(now to be dairy free you take your dairy free milk, put 1 TB white vinegar in the bottom of the measuring cup and fill the rest of the way with your milk--I used coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk(very easy to make your own with coconut milk)
  • 1 cup finely ground demerara sugar
  • 1 Tb coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter(same thing just peanuts ground up with chunks this time)
  • 1/2 cup dairy and gluten free mini marshmallows(found these in my local Hy-Vee)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the flour, soda, sugar, and salt together in a bowl and set aside.
The dry ingredients mixed together.

Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson -Review CFBA

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story
Bethany House Publishers (May 1, 2013)
Dee Henderson


Dee Henderson is the bestselling, award-winning author of 15 previous novels, including the acclaimed O'MALLEY series and UNCOMMON HEROES series. These days, most authors are out there energetically promoting their books in print and broadcast and via social media—wherever they can get attention. But Dee Henderson keeps a low profile. She avoids telephone interviews because of hearing problems, declined to provide a current photo, and will say only that she lives in Illinois.


It's a summer of change for Jennifer O'Malley. The busy physician has a pediatrics practice in Dallas, and meeting Tom Peterson, and falling in love, is adding a rich layer to her life. She's sorting out how to introduce him to her family--she's the youngest of seven--and thinking about marriage.

She's falling in love with Jesus too, and knows God is good. But that faith is about to be tested in a way she didn't expect, and the results will soon transform her entire family.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Jennifer: An O’Malley Love Story, go to HERE.

My thoughts:  I loved the O'Malley series of books by Dee Henderson and was thrilled to see that she was beginning to write about the love stories of these characters.  I loved Jennifer's story in the series and loved this book even more.  It is not very thick but is definitely one that you will want to keep reading until you get to the end and then you find yourself wanting more!  I know at least I am wanting more from this series and would love to see more in depth of what happens next for Jennifer and Tom.

#OGIOwines Pinot Grigio Wine Review -The Pitch List

I have to start by saying that I'm not a huge wine drinker.  I tend to use it more in cooking than actually drinking it.  And when I do drink wine I like the sweet fruity ones.  I was thrilled to get to review the Pinot Grigio wine by Ogio Wines.  

The Pinot Grigio is a dry white wine with a pale straw color retailing at $12.99 per bottle.  It does have a high acidity.  You can learn more about how this wine is made and the statistics by simply going to their website to the Pinot Grigio page!  This is what I would call a perfect wine.  You can use it in cooking but also drink it with any meal really. It pairs well with all foods including Thai, Mexican, and Indian.  It has a mellow flavor with hints of fruit(mainly a citrus taste for me).  This is the perfect wine for sipping on while soaking in the tub.  I've been doing a lot of soaking in the tub so trust me on this one!

Ogio Wine began in Italy using only the finest processes and fruit from northeast of Venice.  They began in the early 1900's as a family owned and operated business.  Now on their third generation of wine makers they are still family owned and dedicated to making the finest wines.  

They make and sell three different wines.  The one I reviewed, Pinot Grigio, as well as an acclaimed and awarded Prosecco, and ending with a red wine called Tuscan Red.  All wines are made in Italy but are slowly making their way to the United States for purchase.  They are already available in some areas but won't be available in others until 2014.  You can check out their Find a Store tab to figure out where they are available near you for purchase.  My closest store is over 400 miles away so I don't think I will be driving off to buy more just yet!  The 10 major cities that they are available in currently are:  San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Charlotte, Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, Denver, and New York.  You can also order online.  

Let's talk shipping now that I mentioned you can order online.  I was pleasantly surprised with how well this bottle was shipped!  It had a very strong and sturdy wrap around it plus extra wrap to keep it from moving around in the box.  It remained totally intact and short of someone throwing it very hard did not look like it would be easy to break the bottle.  I also received a pair of flip flops with the Ogio logo on them.  I'm not a huge flip flop wearer, but these are super cute.  Unfortunately, I have child size feet(think size 3 in kids) and these are a bit too big for me.  I can't seem to force myself to give them away yet though so they are staring at me and begging to be worn!

This image if from the Ogio site.
I do not own such cute wine glasses!
In fact I don't own any wine glasses!
Also make sure to check out their Facebook Page!  They often share thoughts and comments from people who have tried their wines.  

If you want a great recipe to use this wine in try out my Homemade Gluten Free Cheese Sauce.  It is wonderful with this wine.  I was a bit hesitant at first as I normally just buy the cheap wine for cooking(yeap shame shame on me) and didn't want to waste a fine wine like this.  But I have to say using a good quality wine like this made the flavor of my cheese sauce that much more amazing!

Welcome to Bloomfield, where life is simple, love is real, and stories are shared.

Lynn Myers is still reeling from losing her husband of thirty-five years when word comes that her only sibling, an older brother, has also died. With no one else to settle the estate, she must return to her small hometown of Bloomfield, however briefly, to settle his affairs.

Lynn’s daughter, Rachel, has just graduated from Bible college and with no other commitments comes along to sort through her uncle’s huge old home, right next to the local cemetery.

It isn't long before Rachel has two men -- a handsome CPA and the youth pastor -- seriously vying for her attention. At the same time, Lynn's attention is drawn to a set of journals her brother has left behind detailing a long-standing Bloomfield mystery.

As they pursue solving this mystery, Rachel must make some personal decisions about her future, while Lynn is forced to face unexpected issues from her own past.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Last Chance for Justice, go HERE.

My thoughts:  I was spellbound by this book.  I loved the story of Last Chance Justice and how Lynn along with her daughter and her beau solve his mystery.  I personally am hoping for a sequel to this book as we've got two love stories(well at least I'm seeing two love stories) coming off of this one!  I definitely agree with Rachel's choice in men though. . . .

Grandma's Pumpkin Bread Recipe -Modified by Me

The best(though not the healthiest) pumpkin bread!
A few years ago I got a cookbook at a garage sale that I wanted to try out.  It was the 1982 Holt County Cookbook (Holt County, MO that is).  I was going through and found a wonderful sounding pumpkin bread recipe.  I wanted to try it so bad.  Then I read the by line and realized my grandmother(mom's mother) had actually submitted the recipe!  I was unknowingly going to make a family recipe!

This recipe is very moist and oh so melt in your mouth good.  I have changed up some things of course.  I've made it gluten free.  It would be dairy free and sugar free if I could figure something out to do with the pudding mix, but it makes this so moist that I don't have the heart to cut it.

I also added the pecan topping which is so yum on top!

5 eggs
2 tsp stevia(scant)
3/4 c. coconut oil
3/4 c. applesauce
2 c. cooked pumpkin
1 or 2 pkgs instant coconut or vanilla pudding(1 if the large size)
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp guar gum

1/2 c. chopped nuts(pecans)
1/4 cup muscavada(this is an organic version of brown sugar--if you don't have just use brown sugar)

Beat eggs, applesauce, and coconut oil together in bowl.

Ready to mix it all up!

Add pumpkin and blend well. 

Add sifted dry ingredients, make sure to mix these in well and try to avoid lumps 

Fold in pudding mix.  

Mix well.  

Mix the muscavado and pecans together and sprinkle on top of the bread.

Place in greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

Freezes well, very moist.

DefenderPad Laptop Radiation Shield Review and Giveaway -The Pitch List


Do you have a laptop?  Have a problem with it getting hot?  Want to set with it in your lap so you can work but hate how hot it makes your lap or worry about radiation exposure?  Well I now have the perfect cure for you.  I recently got the chance to review the DefenderPad Laptop Radiation Shield.  This shield is a very thin black shield to go underneath your computer to help fix and prevent all these problems.

Before starting to use the DefenderPad I had troubles with my laptop getting too hot and then you would hear it running hard and acting up.  I really hated that!  It was annoying.  I also hated putting the thing in my lap because I hated how hot it would get.  I'm 38 weeks pregnant and don't need any help increasing my body heat!

Did you know that laptops emit raditation?  They can emit harmful electromagnetic radiation which is linked to decreased fertility in both males and females.  There are also other frequencies of radiation that are emitted.  The DefenderPad protects against all of these as it is able to block them from reaching you when you are using it to place the computer in your lap.

The DefenderPad is very slim and trim and easy to use.  You can take it with you simply by sliding it into your laptop case with your computer.  It is that thin!  Super easy to take with you and the protection is definitely worth it.

Look at how thin this is!  Seriously you won't even know it's there!

I also get to share with you a special coupon code for 10% off your own DefenderPad simply by using code spring13.  How simple is that!  Thanks to this great company for offering up this review and discount code.

Like what you're reading here on my blog and on their website?  Check out their other medias on facebook, pinterest, google + as well as twitter; and then come back to enter the giveaway below!  5 lucky readers will each win a DefenderPad of their own!  Giveaway ends on May 24th.
