All About Eva by Deidre Berry

Title: All About Eva

Author: Deidre Berry

Rating: 4

Headline: Get Back Up!

Eva Cantrell is a fashionista and socialite because of her well-to-do Wall Street boyfriend, Donovan. She has grown accustomed to the very best material things that life has to offer until one day her life is turned upside down. Donovan turns out to be a thief, goes on the run, and leaves Eva on the other side of the world without a penny to her name or an airplane ticket back to America.

Deidre Berry pens a story of a fall and an eventual rise back to the top. Us as the reader may not connect with the high society lifestyle but at one point or another we have been knocked down in life and had to pick ourselves back up. Because of this, I could not help but cheer for Eva as she has to learn how to depend on herself and make many different choices to put her life back together.

‘All About Eva’ is a quick, fun read that held my interest from beginning to end. While it is a piece of fiction we can all learn a lesson to apply in our lives about how to be self-sufficient and how to get back up once everyone has turned their back on you. I would recommend this book to others.

Sunday Christians by Jodaea

Title: Sunday Christians

Author: Jodaea

Headline: Don’t be Fooled

Rating: 3.5

Sunday Christians follows the story of Xavier Wilson. He is a successful, handsome entrepreneur that is searching for someone to share his life with. He has grown accustomed to having women throw themselves at him trying to become his wife, and one day he meets Phenice whom he knows will be his wife one day. And, while they have a whirlwind of a romance, it quickly becomes a nightmare for Xavier.

By the title of this book, one would assume that it is mainly about a Christian lifestyle, but it easily could be considered a secular book. The actions of some members of the church in this book will make you wonder why some even try to fool others by only being ‘Sunday Christians.’ Sunday Christians is the author’s first piece of published work and I do look forward to her second novel. This book is full of surprises and it is a quick read.

Love is All We’re After by Andrea’ Porter

Title: Love Is All We’re After

Author: Andrea’ Porter

Headline: Twists and Turns

Rating: 3.5

Andrea’ Porter’s novel, Love is All We’re After, is a solid debut from the author. It follows the lives of three women who have been friends since college, Candy, Mona, and Lisa. Each is at different points in their lives romantically and spiritually, but they will soon find out they are more intertwined than they knew.

This novel is advertised as Christian fiction and yes it does discuss religion, but  it does not ‘force’ it on you. There were quite a few spelling errors that should have been caught during the editing process. And, I personally thought, the storyline of Mikhail did not deserve their own chapters. He could have been mentioned as side notes within other chapters. Overall, it is a solid debut and a quick read.
