This is the first time I have read a book written by Hallee Bridgeman, but it will not be the last I enjoyed both stories Hallee develops her characters well, and includes humor, suspense and romance in each book The Jewel Series Bundle 2 follows the lives of two of three sisters, explaining their rough childhood, and their maturing and growth as adults They have each suffered varying degrees of childhood abuse, and are struggling to find where they belong in their families, in society and in relation to God Emerald Fire, is the story of Maxine s life Maxine has become an amazingly strong and resilient woman She has fears to overcome, obstacles in her path, and burdens to carry, as we all do I really enjoyed her male friend Barry s sense of humor, and typical cluelessness to the female emotions I feel these things help make the charactersreal Will she let God be in control of her life Can she overcome the fears that have kept her single You won t find out unless you read the book Sarah, the main character in Topaz Heat, has blanked out the abuses of her childhood She was adopted into a loving, Christian home when she was a child Topaz Heat has a lot of excitement and suspense mixed in with romance and real human emotions I think Sarah seems to see the world in black and white You are either good or bad, with no middle ground She needs to overcome her expectations and learn to allow other people to grow, mature, and she must learn to accept them the way they are flawed humans needing God s grace But will she Hallee s writing style is enjoyable, with smooth flowing chapters, strong main characters, and a strong emphasis put on the importance of having a strong relationship with God I received this book from Book Fun Network in exchange for my honest opinion The Jewel Series Bundle 2 Emerald Fire Topaz Heat This is the 2nd Jewel Series Bundle I have read, the first being The Jewel Series Bundle 1 Sapphire Ice and Greater Than Rubies I loved the first bundle from the very 1st page on, as I do the 2nd.Maxine is the second sister in line and has never let a man get close to her physically or otherwise, after leaving their mother s home and the foster homes She keeps herself under control at all times and that is why there is such an exciting twist that shows up right away in the book Maxine is a lot like Robin was at first about God and faith, she doesn t want to have anything to do with it, and you can understand why when you read their historyBarry is Tony s lawyer so Maxine has known him as long as Robin has known Tony Maxine was always drawn to Barry, but he is married so the only are together for sports, watching or events The story starts off with a real kick in the pants scene No one saw this coming And there aresurprises to come.What is really nice about each of these books are the recipes that are talked about in the story, and discussion questions.Sarah Thomas, the 3rd sister was taken to a home where she was adopted and grew up in a normal home,so than her other two sisters When Robin and Maxine are older they are able to find Sarah and bring her into their lives Sarah works as a nurse, and hasn t decided to go through further schooling yet.Derrick DiNunzio has been working for Tony ever since Tony rescued him from his former life Sometimes that life is hard to forget, for others anyway God had already forgiven Tony so he knew his sins had been put away from him Sometimes it s hard to not act like that young kid again when he gets around Sarah.The author has a great twist for you in the story it makes it really hard to put the book down until you are finished It was for me anyway.Again there are recipes and discussion questions, very good ones too.I loved reading these books, I m just sorry to see them end.I received this book from book fun network in exchange for an honest review.
