The Cowboy’s Belated Discovery | Valerie Comer

 

 

Today I am reviewing The Cowboy’s Belated Discovery, the fifth story in the Saddle Springs Romance series by Valerie Comer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

In this belated epiphany romance, all she asks is one shot at winning his heart, but he can’t take one more chance on love.

Tori Carmichael has been in a holding pattern since her dad’s debilitating accident. Now that the family’s ranch resort is on stable footing again, she’s ready for her future, but her plan to become a teacher dims in the glow of her dreams about the newest cowboy in Saddle Springs. Too bad there seems little sign Garret will ever return her interest.

Garret Morrison had planned to resume his music career after taking time to regroup from a shattered relationship, but his aging parents need his help with their riding stable. He pours himself into worship ministry at the local church, avoiding starry-eyed Tori for her own good. Every woman he’s loved has left him, one way or another, and he can’t face the possibility one more time.

What will it take for Garret to discover that love is worth the risk? And will that realization come too late to save what might have been?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Another Saddle Springs romance!

Oh mercy… why is it that the people you least want to ever see again seem to turn up at the worst moments! And the people you really want to be with seen to be out of your reach!

If you’re intrigued, don’t miss this exciting new sequel in the Saddle Springs Romance series. You’re gonna love getting to know Garret and Tori… and you’ll be hoping (along with me) that they finally work things out so they can move on with their lives.

Don’t miss this exciting new series by Valerie Comer!

Happy Reading!

 

God bless you!

The Abbott Creek Cookbook | Naomi Miller

 

 

Today I am reviewing The Abbott Creek Cookbook by Naomi Miller.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Katie and her friends in Abbott Creek enjoy cooking . . . and baking, and they would like to share some of their favorite recipes with you.

They have gathered the best and most delicious recipes to be found in Abbott Creek, and added in some fun extras to go along with them. That way, you can enjoy reading about your favorite characters while you enjoy their favorite treats.

If you have read the stories that follow Katie and her friends, you will recognize many of the recipes within. However, we have also added a few you haven’t seen in the books. With any luck, you will find some new favorites to go along with the ones you already have–and love.

Either way . . . whether or not you have read the Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series or not, we sincerely hope you enjoy the recipes within this book.

 

MY THOUGHTS:

If you enjoy reading Amish fiction stories, you’ll enjoy reading The Abbott Creek Cookbook. And if you enjoy baking Amish treats, you’re gonna LOVE The Abbott Creek Cookbook!

Not only does this book share a little of each book from the Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series, but it shares each of the recipes included in the sox books, plus a whole lot more. And the author does a great job of including bits and pieces of the characters in the books to make her cookbook more interesting.

The Abbott Creek Cookbook has released just in time to make a great Christmas gift… so order a copy for yourself — and a friend (or two… or more) and prepare a few of the recipes to share with family and friends during the next few weeks. Check out the links below to purchase this book.

An Amish Wedding Feast on Ice Mountain | Kelly Long

 

 

Today I am reviewing An Amish Feast on Ice Mountain by Kelly Long.

Here is a brief synopsis:

An Amish celebration . . .

Since the moment her father died, Beth Mast has devoted body and soul to the care of her stepmother and stepsister—cooking, cleaning, and caring for their animals. So her friend Lucy’s wedding to the eldest King brother offers a welcome respite.

Shy and unaware of her beauty, Beth harbors a secret sadness she hopes no one can see. But at this gathering she’s on display: her assigned escort happens to be the handsomest bachelor in their Amish community.

Newly returned to Ice Mountain, Ransom King has no interest in the maedels pursuing him. Haunted by events during his five-year apprenticeship in Ohio, he’s startled to find a kindred spirit in Beth, whose dutiful ways can’t mask her inner glow.

Ransom longs to show her how much she deserves happiness, though his own troubled history holds him back. It will take Ransom’s feisty Aenti Ruth and her ragtag menagerie to entice these two guarded hearts to open to love . . .

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Kelly Long, I loved your story!

Beth Mast has no idea that she’s being treated more like a servant than a daughter. But that’s the kind of person she is… loving, giving, loyal, dependable, and hard-working. Attributes we should all exhibit.

Such interesting characters, an unexpected twist to the story, and a surprising end, kept me reading long past midnight. I honestly could not put this book down until I reached the end. I can’t wait to ready other books by the author.

Thank you, Ms. Long, for a wonderful story!

Happy Reading!

 

Blessings!

An Amish Christmas Kitchen | Gould, Drexler, Lloyd

 

 

Today I am reviewing An Amish Christmas Kitchen by Leslie Gould, Jan Drexler, and Kate Lloyd.

Here is a brief synopsis:

As the weather grows cold and the nights grow long, the cheer and warmth of the Christmas season is one thing all readers can find comfort in.

This collection from bestselling Amish fiction novelists Leslie Gould, Jan Drexler, and Kate Lloyd finds the beating heart at the center of the holiday and offers three novellas that celebrate family, faith, and especially the sights and smells of a bustling holiday kitchen.

An Amish Family Christmas
Leslie Gould tells the story of how, in the wake of a heartbreaking loss, a young Amish woman finds unexpected comfort and hope in a yearly baking tradition surrounding the local Lancaster Christmas market.

An Amish Christmas Recipe
Jan Drexler offers a sweet tale of a shy Amish woman who decides to use her gift for sweets to woo a local Amish boy with her beloved Christmas cookies.

An Unexpected Gift
And Kate Lloyd offers a heartwarming tale of a woman’s unexpected discovery about the truth of her past, and the warm and welcoming Amish family table she finds herself invited to on Christmas.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I love reading Christmas stories… and here are three wonderful Christmas stories! All three are unique, yet with the same message of hope and love.

An Amish Family Christmas
In the first story, Noelle has never overcome the rejection she felt when the man she was to marry leaves — and never returns. But their story is much more involved than the simple one she believes. And when Jesse does return, he is determined to find out why she rejected him! Read their story and discover the truth, as well as how Noelle learns to overcome the past and look forward to a brighter future.

An Amish Christmas Recipe
In the second story, Ada bakes a batch of delicious cookies to gain the attention of Amos, but she has no idea that another man is already interested in more than the cookies she bakes, but the sweet baker herself. What will happen when he tries to tell her that Amos isn’t the man she thinks he is? Will she believe him or not? Read this exciting story to discover how she deals with the truth.

An Unexpected Gift
In the final story, Maria discovers after she takes a DNA test that she is adopted. Searching for her birth parents, she travels to Lancaster County. Meeting the Miller family, she feel even more certain that she is close to finding her parents. Read this heart-warming story and learn the truth about Maria and her heritage.

Happy Reading!

and Merry Christmas!

Hush | Leanna Sain

 

 

Today I am reviewing Hush, an Amelia Island Suspense, by Leanna Sain.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Lacey Campbell dreams murders before they happen.

The night she dreams of a man strangling a young woman while crooning the lullaby “Hush, Little Baby,” she tries to convince herself it doesn’t mean anything. The next day she’s horrified to learn her dream was reality. Then she dreams the second murder….

Detective Ford Jamison is called in to help the local police, and he soon has a working theory about the murders. His belief that the killer is using the lullaby as a “blueprint” to target women who resemble Lacey, doesn’t slow the killings. Lacey is now afraid to fall asleep at night because the next face she sees in her dream might be her own.

As a hurricane churns ever closer to the little coastal town, danger and suspicion spins out of control. Time is running out. Can they stop the killer before the last verse of the lullaby?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Lacey Campbell has been having dreams since her childhood… but not ordinary dreams. More like nightmares. When she dreams about a young woman being strangled, the very next day she’s horrified to find out that the young woman really was strangled!

Of course I can’t tell you anything without revealing too much, but if you enjoy stories full of suspense, you might want to check this exciting story out.

Happy Reading!

 

Blessings!

Christmas in Winter Hill | Melody Carlson

 

 

Today I am reviewing Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Krista Galloway has a good reason to dislike the holiday season, but when her new job as city manager forces her to plan the town’s over-the-top Christmas celebration, she and her daughter may find a new home–and some Christmas spirit–in the process.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I love reading Christmas stories…

Krista Galloway isn’t too crazy about Christmas… as a matter of fact, she doesn’t care for it at all.

Spoiler #1 — her birthday is on Christmas Eve–the worst day to have a birthday, because everyone is fixated on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. So… she never gets birthday gifts or a party.

Spoiler #2 — her husband left her–you guessed it–on Christmas Eve.

I can’t blame Krista for not liking Christmas. The problem is, she’s just taken a job in Winter Hill, where they have huge Christmas plans every year. And, of course, they’re expecting her to participate. But that’s not the biggest problem!

And I’m not going to say anything else. If you want to know more, read the story. Find out why Krista may be leaving town… before Christmas even comes!

Happy Reading!

 

Blessings!
