Last November, Lutheran author Jody Hedlund released Enamored, the first book in her new Knights of Brethren series. Below is my review. (By the way, there is a giveaway on her most recent book, Never Leave Me, from her Waters of Time series. I really enjoyed the first installment. Go here to enter for a chance to win this second in a series.)
You know how sometimes all you want for a weekend is to sink into a couch and a book? Enamored is a book for just such times. I really enjoyed it. Hit the spot, mixing suspense, fantasy & a bit of childhood onward romance.
Arthurian allusions, although clearly a new take. Magical relics. Dracos, which are dragon-like creatures. My cup of tea!
What is Rasmus, the Royal Sage, thinking? I don’t know, but he’s sure to be developed more in the next novel. Meanwhile, I thought Elinor & Maxim were well-written characters. I thought Maxim’s anticipations of Elinor’s habits were winsome, and I thought the end of the book was absolutely perfect.

Judy Hedlund has written a LOT of books! (Yes, I’m using affiliate links. Every bit helps.) I’ll list by genre and series. Plus I’ll include a few dates, because, seriously, I’m so impressed by how quickly she writes!
