    I?m always a little nervous to read a book by an author I?ve never read by before, but I could have saved my fretting when it came to Love?s Rescue by Christine Johnson. This book was perfectly lovely! ^_^ ... And yet deep. Poignant. Heart-wrenching, but soul-touching. It was ...

    What a delightful story! This book pretty much has it all ? danger, a manipulating family, a forbidden romance, intrigue, secrets, and more. Love?s Rescue is full of complex characters and difficult situations. I really connected with Elizabeth and Rourke, wanting their love to ...

    I loved this story! The book itself is beautiful (usually Bethany House is my favorite designer of gorgeous books, but Revell did an outstanding job with designing this one...it's much prettier in hard copy). I am guilty of buying this book because the cover was so pretty, which does n...

    This book may look pretty on the outside, but hold onto your seat! You won't have a minute to breath from the first page to the last!! Elizabeth is heading back home to Key West and is ready to face life as it is now. Her mother just died, her father expects her to marry a man she can'...

    Reviewed at The Power of Words: http://bit.ly/1AVzuh3 Christine Johnson has published stories in the Love Inspired line before, but I believe Love's Rescue is her first full-length novel and I have to say that she has given us a very interesting story. There's a lot to like here - a...

    Heroine Elizabeth is a likable character. She is fallible yet redeems herself. Overall, the story was a good one. The flow seemed a bit off to me though. At times, I was completely engaged and others not as much. Some parts of the story seemed a bit unrealistic. ...

    After twisting the truth a bit to get what she wanted/needed Elizabeth Benjamin probably shouldn't have expected a happy welcome from her semi-cold father. But Elizabeth will do what Elizabeth wants and now she is stuck in a most difficult situation. As she is forced further into a fut...

    When Elizabeth Benjamin learns of her mother's death, she sets sail at once for her home on Key West. There she hopes to make things right with the brother she hurt four years prior. Her journey home isn't easy. First her ship wrecks and she is rescued by Rourke O'Malley, the man she h...

    First, I want to thank the author for the complimentary copy of this book! This is a great historical book. It is set in the beautiful Florida Keys in the 1850s. I love the characters and the beautiful love story between Elizabeth and Rourke. Throughout the book I could very easily...

    This was my first time reading Christine Johnson and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't really explain it but I felt the romance was some-what secondary to the story line and I so appreciated that. It's not fluffy or to syrupy just a nice blend of historical attributes and crashing waves...

    I really enjoyed this book. This was my first book by Christine Johnson, but I'm sure I will be reading more by her. I LOVED the setting! I looked forward to opening Love's Rescue and traveling to the Florida Keys. I've never actually been there, but it sounded so beautiful. I thought ...

    What a wonderful story!!!!!! Yes, if you like historical romance then I would definitely recommend it. Christine Johnson takes the reader to Key West, Florida during the mid 1800's and give them a glimpse of the unrest in the area experienced while trying to rebuild after a hurrican...

    Too contrived. Why would you verbally give a message to someone to verbally convey to someone else who must then verbally convey it to a final party when in reality the person you want to receive the message (and it must be received exactly) is the third person in your little game of "...

    This book wove betrayal, secrets, romance, and faith into a beautiful story. I loved many aspects of this story, but most importantly, I loved the writing style Johnson used. Her writing was simple and understandable, yet poignant and beautiful. I empathized with Elizabeth as far ...

    It has been a really long time since I've read a Christian romance that had such a breath-taking beginning. The 19th century seas are certainly the perfect place to start a novel if you want to capture this reader's attention and Ms. Johnson did! While this story as a romance fizzled, ...

    Wow, this was a really fascinating read! I liked the portrayal of the characters; Rouke was dashing, kind, honest and loyal-Elizabeth was a little frustrating, as I chaffed inside at how under her aunts domineering thumb she was-but I felt her character truly changed and strengthened. ...

    LOVE'S RESCUE is Ms. Johnson's first book in her Keys of Promise series. At first I wasn't real sure what to think of it, as Elizabeth is a lady of means and being paraded among eligible bachelors to find an approved husband. Translation, a man of means who she doesn't love. When ...

    What an incredible book with twists and turns and surprises I never saw coming. I really enjoyed this first book in a new series by Christine Johnson. Very well written. There is a lot of action in this book. I felt like I was right there in the midst of the storms, the shipwreck, and ...

    All good things comes to those who wait... Wow! What an amazing story! Redemption is key to this whole story. God and ours! This is the first book I've read by Christine Johnson, she's penned a lovely and adventurous story of love hope, and forgiveness. Looking forward to the ne...

    I really liked this book. I liked the setting: Key West is it's own special place today as it must have been nearly 200 years ago. I liked the characters (well, most of them). And I liked the plot with it's little bits of romance, mystery, and danger. I'm already looking forward to the...

    4.5 stars A great historical romance set in the Florida keys, with a lesson of forgiveness, wreckers, bringing slaves to freedom, unwanted suitors, painful discoveries, and a sweet romance. <3 :) :) ...

    What can I say? This was one of the best books I have ever read. It had it all: adventure, romance and a beautiful and encouraging description of how God cares about us. It was uplifting and exciting, I couldnt put it down! I recommend it warmly :) What can I say? This was one of th...

    LOVE'S RESCUE is Ms. Johnson's first book in her Keys of Promise series. At first I wasn't real sure what to think of it, as Elizabeth is a lady of means and being paraded among eligible bachelors to find an approved husband. Translation, a man of means who she doesn't love. When ...

    What an incredible book with twists and turns and surprises I never saw coming. I really enjoyed this first book in a new series by Christine Johnson. Very well written. There is a lot of action in this book. I felt like I was right there in the midst of the storms, the shipwreck, and ...

    All good things comes to those who wait... Wow! What an amazing story! Redemption is key to this whole story. God and ours! This is the first book I've read by Christine Johnson, she's penned a lovely and adventurous story of love hope, and forgiveness. Looking forward to the ne...

    This book may look pretty on the outside, but hold onto your seat! You won't have a minute to breath from the first page to the last!! Elizabeth is heading back home to Key West and is ready to face life as it is now. Her mother just died, her father expects her to marry a man she can'...

    Heroine Elizabeth is a likable character. She is fallible yet redeems herself. Overall, the story was a good one. The flow seemed a bit off to me though. At times, I was completely engaged and others not as much. Some parts of the story seemed a bit unrealistic. ...

    When Elizabeth Benjamin learns of her mother's death, she sets sail at once for her home on Key West. There she hopes to make things right with the brother she hurt four years prior. Her journey home isn't easy. First her ship wrecks and she is rescued by Rourke O'Malley, the man she h...

    First, I want to thank the author for the complimentary copy of this book! This is a great historical book. It is set in the beautiful Florida Keys in the 1850s. I love the characters and the beautiful love story between Elizabeth and Rourke. Throughout the book I could very easily...

    This was my first time reading Christine Johnson and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't really explain it but I felt the romance was some-what secondary to the story line and I so appreciated that. It's not fluffy or to syrupy just a nice blend of historical attributes and crashing waves...

    I really enjoyed this book. This was my first book by Christine Johnson, but I'm sure I will be reading more by her. I LOVED the setting! I looked forward to opening Love's Rescue and traveling to the Florida Keys. I've never actually been there, but it sounded so beautiful. I thought ...

    LOVE'S RESCUE is Ms. Johnson's first book in her Keys of Promise series. At first I wasn't real sure what to think of it, as Elizabeth is a lady of means and being paraded among eligible bachelors to find an approved husband. Translation, a man of means who she doesn't love. When ...

    I really liked this book. I liked the setting: Key West is it's own special place today as it must have been nearly 200 years ago. I liked the characters (well, most of them). And I liked the plot with it's little bits of romance, mystery, and danger. I'm already looking forward to the...

    I really liked this book. I liked the setting: Key West is it's own special place today as it must have been nearly 200 years ago. I liked the characters (well, most of them). And I liked the plot with it's little bits of romance, mystery, and danger. I'm already looking forward to the...

    What can I say? This was one of the best books I have ever read. It had it all: adventure, romance and a beautiful and encouraging description of how God cares about us. It was uplifting and exciting, I couldnt put it down! I recommend it warmly :) What can I say? This was one of th...

    Kindle freebie. 1.5 stars, rounded up. The writing and plot just didn't hold together well for me. Loose ends dropped, intrigue going nowhere... ...

    Starts strong, with a storm, and then an unrelated shipwreck, and a forbidden romance always has possibilities. The plot is a solid one for historicals: Father wants daughter to marry the respectable Mr. A, while she wants the unsuitable Mr. B, and entailed finances add urgency. There ...

    It is a sweet love story which has unique story plots to it which captures one's attention. I can feel the breezes of this story from the island it is told from most of the time. Will the four people who have longed to be with one another finally embrace the day with rejoicing for all ...

    I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. One problem for me was the immense amount of detail, which I know some readers like. But, I also found bits and pieces repetitive, which annoyed me. Overall, it was a good story with bits of suspense, good lessons on forgiveness and ...

    Redemption I loved it and was sad when it ended! I'd fallen in love with the characters and their unfolding growth and development through the story!! I cannot wait to find out more in the sequel! ...

    I?m always a little nervous to read a book by an author I?ve never read by before, but I could have saved my fretting when it came to Love?s Rescue by Christine Johnson. This book was perfectly lovely! ^_^ ... And yet deep. Poignant. Heart-wrenching, but soul-touching. It was ...

    What a delightful story! This book pretty much has it all ? danger, a manipulating family, a forbidden romance, intrigue, secrets, and more. Love?s Rescue is full of complex characters and difficult situations. I really connected with Elizabeth and Rourke, wanting their love to ...

    This book may look pretty on the outside, but hold onto your seat! You won't have a minute to breath from the first page to the last!! Elizabeth is heading back home to Key West and is ready to face life as it is now. Her mother just died, her father expects her to marry a man she can'...

    Reviewed at The Power of Words: http://bit.ly/1AVzuh3 Christine Johnson has published stories in the Love Inspired line before, but I believe Love's Rescue is her first full-length novel and I have to say that she has given us a very interesting story. There's a lot to like here - a...

    Heroine Elizabeth is a likable character. She is fallible yet redeems herself. Overall, the story was a good one. The flow seemed a bit off to me though. At times, I was completely engaged and others not as much. Some parts of the story seemed a bit unrealistic. ...

    After twisting the truth a bit to get what she wanted/needed Elizabeth Benjamin probably shouldn't have expected a happy welcome from her semi-cold father. But Elizabeth will do what Elizabeth wants and now she is stuck in a most difficult situation. As she is forced further into a fut...

    When Elizabeth Benjamin learns of her mother's death, she sets sail at once for her home on Key West. There she hopes to make things right with the brother she hurt four years prior. Her journey home isn't easy. First her ship wrecks and she is rescued by Rourke O'Malley, the man she h...

    First, I want to thank the author for the complimentary copy of this book! This is a great historical book. It is set in the beautiful Florida Keys in the 1850s. I love the characters and the beautiful love story between Elizabeth and Rourke. Throughout the book I could very easily...

    This was my first time reading Christine Johnson and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't really explain it but I felt the romance was some-what secondary to the story line and I so appreciated that. It's not fluffy or to syrupy just a nice blend of historical attributes and crashing waves...

    I really enjoyed this book. This was my first book by Christine Johnson, but I'm sure I will be reading more by her. I LOVED the setting! I looked forward to opening Love's Rescue and traveling to the Florida Keys. I've never actually been there, but it sounded so beautiful. I thought ...
