5.0 out of 5 stars Sharlene MacLaren never disappoints! March 1 2012
By Susan Snodgrass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I own all Sharlene MacLaren's books and will continue to buy them and keep them in my collection. This is the second offering in her River of Hope series and tells the story of Ellie Booth, who leaves her broken down home in the hills of Tennessee after witnessing something horrible. Alone at 19, with practically nothing to her name, she steps off the train in Wabash, Indiana with nowhere to live.
She answers an ad for a wife/housekeeper/nanny with no hopes that it will work but desperately needing something. She never realizes she will find love, but danger will also come knocking on her door and along the way, Christ also knocks at her door.
Sharlene MacLaren has a unique knack for drawing her readers into the story, making her characters as real as their own family. She writes with feeling,depth and great spirituality.
You will never go wrong with her books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly a Haven July 7 2012
By Cindy Sproles - Published on Amazon.com
For this second in a series, Sharlene MacLaren sets a better pace. Young Ellie Booth runs away to hide from a stepfather who has committed a series crime which she witnessed. I loved how MacLaren forced her characters into a marriage then allows them to "figure one another out."

A well written book, wonderful characters and quickly drawn into the story MacLaren has a winner in Ellie's Haven.

A must read. Book two in the River of Hope series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wonderful Book! May 7 2012
By Lynne Young - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this book! It is Book 2 in the River of Hope series and it is just as good as book 1. I love the way Sharlene MacLaren writes. She weaves a beautiful, believable story with faith, romance and yes even fear at times but God is in control and He will make a way.

Eleanor, Ellie for short, Booth is desperate. She has witnessed a crime committed by her stepfather and her mother sends her away for safety. Unfortunately, the Aunt she is sent to has passed away so Ellie answers an ad placed by widower Gage Cooper for a "wife". What he is really looking for is a permanent housekeeper and caregiver for his 4 children, not anything romantic. God, however has other plans for Gage and Ellie. How those plans work out makes this a wonderful story that kept me reading far into the night. You will love the characters in this book and Tommy Lee will steal your heart.

Thank you Ms. MacLaren for a great book! I am looking forward to Book 3! If you haven't read any of this series yet, please do. You will be glad you did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Story May 6 2012
By i blog 4 books - Published on Amazon.com
What a delightful book! I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading Ellie's Haven by Sharlene MacLaren but I was pleasantly surprised!

When her step-father murders a man and insists that Ellie helps him cover the murder up, she knows she can no longer stay in town. With her mother's help, she flees to Wabash, Indiana. Out of desperation, Ellie answer an ad for a nanny/housekeeper/wife posted by a widower in town. She quickly falls in love with the children, but learning to live with a man is another story altogether!

Sharlene MacLaren combines a lot of things I love into one great story in Ellie's Haven. Romance, great friendships, a unique mother/daughter relationship, and more than a little intrigue. It's a recipe for success.

Gage and Ellie's relationship is certainly awkward at times, but I loved how the author allowed both of them to learn from each other as their relationship grew. It would have been easy for Gage (who is 17 years older) to come off as the one with all the answers. However, I felt that they balanced each other nicely.

At one point, I was totally irritated with Gage. He was just too . . . nice. There was a point where Ellie is revealing several "white lies" that she told and he quickly forgives and they move on. Once I thought about it, though, I realized that's what we should do. Since God forgives us, we should forgive others. I also appreciated how he talked with Ellie about God and how he led her in her faith journey.

Romance books typically wrap up a little fast for my taste. You know, the couple gets together and they live happily ever after, the end. However, once I thought the book was wrapping up, I realized I still had around 40 pages to go. It was great to have the ending stretched out a bit more than normal. (But not too long!)

Ellie's Haven was one of my favorite books that I read in January. I'm looking forward to catching up with Ellie and Gage in future installments of the series! [5 stars]

I received a free copy from Whitaker House and FIRST Wildcard Blog Tours in exchange for my fair and honest review.
