Willow Valley Historical Romance

One Last Dance: One thing that always keeps me reading this author's books is her characters; they are engaging, funny and passionate. One Last Dance kept me guessing until the end and left me wanting to read this book all over again. If you like Historical Romance with a mysterious touch and well-developed characters, this book is a must-read. - Author Katrina Marie Hart

The Rebel Series: Historical Adventure Romance

The Rebels of Cordovia: This creative take on a Robin Hood-like story is charming and touching, and teaches some great morals about agency and choice. It reminded me of childhood fairytales of good versus evil, with a nice romance weaved into it. - Author Charissa Stastny

The Highwayman of Cordovia: This sequel to the Rebels of Cordovia takes a pastor's daughter and mixes her in with a rogue highwayman. The results will surprise you in this continued battle for freedom and justice. This sweet romance had action and intrigue, mysteries to solve, and villains to thwart. - Author Charissa Stastny

The Fox of Cordovia: I loved this book. It is full of adventure, drama, intrigue and suspense. We've got kidnapping plots, pirate ships, daring rescues and romance. The author weaves an exciting tale and a sweet romance together in a way that will appeal to all readers and is suitable from age 12 up. - Inishowen Cailín, Just Book Talk

Family Saga Series: Historical Romance

Melinda and the Wild West: From the first page I was captivated by this book. I had to continue reading, rushing to turn the page, I had to see what next adventure would catch up with Melinda. The plot is interesting: mixing history with fiction, adventure with romance. It is a great honor to highly recommend this book to readers of historical fictions and romance. Ms Clarke, this is a piece to be proud of, well done! - Debra Gaynor, Reader Views

Edith and the Mysterious Stranger: Clarke draws the reader into a world full of color and intrigue right from the first page. Her characters have faults that you want to see them overcome as you laugh, cry and cheer at just how genuine and vivid they are. It's refreshing to be able to read a story that can make you run the full range of emotions. The end is uplifting while making you wonder what could happen in the next addition. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would highly recommend Edith and the Mysterious Stranger to anyone looking for a novel that just makes you feel good. - Melynda Gascoyne, The Amherst Bee Newspaper: Buffalo, New York

Amelia Moore Detective Series: Cozy Mysteries

The Mysterious Doll: I've read all of this author's mysteries and this one is my favorite! They're all good, but they just keep getting better and better. I think part of it is getting to know the characters more with each book and watching the way Amelia and her partner, Rick, work together. The mystery element was great! It moved along at a good pace and just when I thought I had it figured out at the end, a few twists were thrown in and I was at a loss once again. - Katies Clean Book Collection

The Lighthouse Secret: In the Amelia Moore Detective Series, the author delivers a delightful, fairly fast-paced tale in the pursuit of a missing person, for that's what Amelia's agency specializes in. This time it is personal, as Rick's Uncle Antonio Bonito dies in suspicious circumstances. But what do lighthouses have to do with his disappearance? The reader gets a brief education into lighthouses, their importance in the past and the interesting uses they have today. - Sandra Olshaski, Library of Clean Reads

Intrigue Series: Mystery Suspense

Mayan Intrigue: What I love about Linda's books is that the relationships in the book are God-honoring and real. No sticky, fake love scenes, but real to life love between a married couple. She continues to epitomize what true Christian marriage should look like in a novel. So thankful to have not only that, but a great mystery to go along with it. The relationships and the communication between the characters is top notch. - Melanie Ski, Jubilee Reviews

Desert Intrigue: I loved the first three books in this series, but I actually loved this one even more. I didn;t think that was possible. The characters are so well written and I absolutely adore each member of the Evans family. They grab at your heartstrings and won't let go. As for the story, talk about fast-paced. Desert Intrigue is that and more! It's a book that will leave you with that warm fuzzy feeling. Linda Weaver Clarke has outdone herself with this book! I'm sure it comes as no surprise that it's getting my Socrates' Great Book Alert. - Socrates Book Reviews
