The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson!

Of course, as an avid reader of James Patterson's books, I was excited when a new Romance novel was set to come out. He works a lot with suspense and thriller novels, but throws romance novels in there every once in awhile. 
And of course, he nailed it once again. I was hooked from the very first page. It is laid out so that you get to understand each character individually, and then they all come together at the end. 
It was wonderfully written, humor and romance all in one. Gaby and all of her kids have great story lines. It is one of his shorter novels, but it is a must read for sure. 
Gaby was married to her children's father Peter. Once he died, the family never really came together for Holidays. Gaby is proposed to by a few suitors and uses that as a way to bring her children to her for Christmas. She doesn't tell them who is she is going to marry, only that they will find on on Christmas day.
You never guess who Gaby is going to marry until the end of the novel comes. It was a surprise to me, but maybe not to others, but there are no hints along the way.

This books gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me!

Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson

I just finished reading Gods in Alabama, and WOW! This book is definite closure to Jackson's book Backseat Saints.
If you haven't read Backseat Saints yet, do not pick this one up.
Gods in Alabama tells Arlene Fleet's story of her escape from Alabama to Chicago, why she did it, and the promises she made to God to get her there.  
When Arlene is forced to return to Alabama by her insistent family and her soon-to-be husband, Burr, she has to face the truths she has been running from since arriving in Chicago. 
Her life is thrown in to a spiral of shock after one conversation with her Aunt Florence. She admits her deepest secret to Burr, and discovers she may have been wrong all along.

This book was hard to put down. It was such a page turner. I would recommend it to those looking for a suspense and emotional book. 
The chapters are pretty long, which turn me off normally, but this book was so interesting that they flew by.

4.5/5 stars from me.
