Review: Stones Creek

Sophie Dawson. I think I mentioned previously that I had just stumbled onto Author Sophie Dawson. My friend and Author, George McVey introduced me to her books. The two of them have worked together on books and personally, I think they make a great team, but each also have their own books out.

Sophie has been publishing her books from what I can see, since 2012 and I just recently heard of her! Imagine that! It really pays to be apart of Author groups via Facebook. I am part of several. One of my favorites is Pioneer Hearts. There are nearly 4,000 members and many authors. You are able to connect with them, interact with them and you have first hand knowledge of when some of your favorites release a new book. I do follow Authors I enjoy via Amazon, their websites and newsletters, and Goodreads – but in all honesty I learn more via Facebook.

The wonderful thing about this group and these Authors are they promote each other, they tell a reader, “If you loved this, you should really check out that!” and then we all find new wonderful stories to read! That’s how I found Sophie and even though I just found her, like within the last month, I have already read both her Cottonwood series and Stones Creek series. I highly recommend them both!

I was hoping there would be more added to them, especially Stones Creek and she did actually tell me that she is planning a spin-off of Stones Creek – The Ladies of Sanctuary House! Also, her project for NANO (National Novel Writing Month) is going to be Janie’s story from the Cottonwood series.

She even shared with me a way to be in-the-know before anyone else and maybe even snag a few FREE stories: https://dl.bookfunnel.com/4pu6ns1txb

She also has a new series out…Love’s Infestation. I haven’t read these, so I cannot recommend them, yet. Sophie’s books are Historical Christian and Contemporary Christian and from what I’ve read so far, have a lot of depth to them. I really like that.

Dear Sophie,

Chloe’s Sanctuary is the last book of yours I’ve read and I loved it! I was so happy for how things worked out with her. Her son reminded me a bit of myself. I’m the oldest of 4 and have been called the “Mother Hen” regularly because I am very protective of my family.

Chloe also reminded me a bit of my mother and some painful experiences she’s been through.

I truly enjoyed the entire series as well as the Cottonwood Series and I’m very excited for the projects you have in the works. I thought I’d liked Cottonwood better but now I’m not so sure! I loved them both. I think what intrigued me most about Stones Creek was the brides that arrived and their stories. I do love a good heart packed adventure.

I love the depth within your books, it brings about a lot of thinking and I like books that make me think and feel vs a book that leaves no lasting impact.

So thank you! Thank you for braving the world, publishing and sharing your stories. To me that is inspiring. I look forward to reading more of your work. Until then, be blessed as you progress.

Sincerely,

Renea
