My read-a-thon with Sierra St. James

The great thing about MY Janette Rallison read-a-thon is I get to read all different kinds of genres. With a Janette Rallison novel you can read funny, YA, MG, clean romances; With C.J. Hill you’ll read YA, Action, Fantasy, Sci-fi, and Paranormal; With Sierra St. James you can read LDS fiction with sweet romances. I love them all and find them very entertaining.

Here’s my reviews for two Sierra St. James novels:

What the Doctor Ordered


Ellie is only planning on spending a couple weeks at her Aunt Bertie’s house in Idaho. She just needs to prove to her parents that her Aunt is not crazy and doesn’t need to be put in a nursing home. Her Aunt still has her Christmas tree up in the summer and Ellie knows it’s going to take a lot to cover up her Aunt’s eccentric behavior. Aunt Bertie is determined to set Ellie up with the new Doctor in her ward. Dr. John Flynn is recently divorced and doesn’t want a woman who’s only looking for a rich doctor. Ellie and John get off on the wrong foot from the get go. Ellie wants to avoid John all together but with her Aunt’s failing health she keeps meeting up with him at the ER. When he assigns himself to be their home-teacher she really can’t avoid him. This is a fun read with romance and good laughs at the joys of dysfunctional families.


Trails of the Heart


Jamie is putting herself through college by cleaning houses. She starts cleaning for Mrs. Walden, a grumpy rich lady who claims she can hear when Jamie doesn’t get all the dust off her priceless artifacts. Jamie tries to be Christ-like but Mrs. Walden is so cantankerous. Jamie wants to quit but decides to stay after work and get to know Mrs. Walden better. They discuss religion and Jamie explains her beliefs on alcohol and how it’s bad for people. She suggests that Mrs. Walden do something different with her vineyards, like plant carrots. Mrs. Walden scoffs at this. Jamie learns that Mrs. Walden passed away and she attends her funeral out of respect. Bombarded by a lawyer and Mrs. Walden’s family she learns that Mrs. Walden changed her will and Jamie inherits the vineyard. Of course the family is upset because Mrs. Walden’s son and grandson have been running the family vineyard business for years. They think she was senile at the end but Jamie thinks Mrs. Walden actually had a change of heart. Her grandson Clay takes it upon himself to try to sway Jamie into giving them back the vineyard and not turn it into some charity. Clay and Jamie are from two different worlds but something pulls them together. It’s a great story of opposites attract. I love reading it again and again.


Unfortunately, my read-a-thon is coming to an end. I’ve read all of Janette’s book under all the different pen names. (I might have missed a couple novellas.) For my final book in my read-a-thon I’m rereading “The Girl Who Heard Demons” which came out in March this year.

Here’s a link to my review and the book which is only .99 cents for Amazon Kindle right now. It is so worth the read!
