His Wyoming Baby Blessing | Jill Kemerer

 

 

Today I am reviewing His Wyoming Baby Blessing, the fourth story in the Wyoming Cowboys series by Jill Kemerer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

She’s pregnant on his doorstep…

Saddle up for this Wyoming Cowboys novel.

When his childhood friend Kit McAllistor shows up, widowed and pregnant, rancher Wade Croft offers her a place to stay…but he can’t offer her his heart. As old feelings begin to surface, past tragedies force Wade to ignore them.

But on the brink of losing his ranch, will he also risk losing the woman he’s beginning to love…or can he cowboy up in time?

 

MY THOUGHTS:

if you’ve read anything by Jill Kemerer, then you’re going to love this series!

Wade Croft is a man with a painful past, just like Kit McAllistor… Kit has lost her husband and is in need of a place to stay. She’s also very pregnant. Wade can’t let go of his past, but he does the honorable thing and helps out his friend Kit. I have to admit that I shed more than a few tears when reading this heart-warming story. I think you will, too.

I can’t wait for you to read this story for yourself… please leave a comment and let me know what you think of it! Just don’t miss out on this wonderful series.

Happy reading!

Wyoming Christmas Quadruplets | Jill Kemerer

 

 

Today I am reviewing Wyoming Christmas Quadruplets, the third story in the Wyoming Cowboys series by Jill Kemerer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

A nanny at Christmas time…

Will she find love in this Wyoming Cowboys novel?

Six weeks on a ranch caring for quadruplets—aspiring nurse Ainsley Draper’s prepared for a busy Christmas. When the children’s handsome uncle opens the door, her task gets extra complicated.

Marshall Graham is upholding his promise to look after his twin sister, the babies’ mom. But as family loyalty clashes with new love, will the perfect present include a future with Ainsley?

 

MY THOUGHTS:

When Ainsley agrees to help a new mother with her quadruplets, the last thing she expects to find is the baby’s uncle caring for them — and their mother hiding out in her room. After Ainsley realizes the mother has problems of her own to deal with, she tries to convince her to visit her doctor, but instead Ainsley ends up getting fired! In the meantime, what will happen to the four wee babes?

I don’t want to ruin the story for you, so let me stop here — and encourage you to read this sweet story for yourself.

Happy reading!

 

Blessings!

Reunited With the Bull Rider | Jill Kemerer

 

 

Today I am reviewing Reunited With the Bull Rider, the second story in the Wyoming Cowboys series by Jill Kemerer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Goodbye rodeo, hello hometown

But is this Wyoming Cowboy ready to face his past?

Amy Deerson wanted to mentor a child. Her plan did not include former bull rider Nash Bolton—the little girl’s brother and guardian. It’s been a decade since Nash left town without a word, breaking Amy’s young heart.

Now they must put their painful past aside to help fragile, traumatized Ruby. If only getting over their first love were that simple.

 

MY THOUGHTS:

This wonderful story really touched my heart!

When Amy Deerson shows up at her church to meet the young child she’s been asked to mentor, she has no idea she’s about to come face-to-face with Nash Bolton, the man who broke her heart! But this story is so much more than just two young people trying to cope with the present, without letting the past destroy what they’re working together to accomplish. Nash’s young sister desperately needs Amy’s help — and friendship — if she’s to get beyond her own scary past.

Jill Kemerer did an awesome job bringing these three people together… and helping them to seek God’s help in working together. Great characters. Great story. This is one of my favorite books now — one I will read again and again.

Warning… you might just need a tissue to get through this heart-warming story!

Happy reading!

 

Blessings!

The Rancher’s Mistletoe Bride | Jill Kemerer

 

 

Today I am reviewing The Rancher’s Mistletoe Bride, the first story in the Wyoming Cowboys series by Jill Kemerer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Coming Home for Christmas 

Wedding planner Lexi Harrington needs a manager for her inherited Wyoming ranch. Clint Romine is the perfect man for the job, but the ruggedly handsome cowboy soon presents a new dilemma—distraction.

Lexi can’t fall for a small-town rancher when she’s planning to return to her big-city career after the holidays. Home has always been elusive for former foster kid Clint.

Working alongside Lexi at Rock Step Ranch feels too cozy—and too risky. Opening up to her means revealing a secret about his past that could jeopardize everything he holds dear.

This Christmas, can Clint learn to trust Lexi with the truth…and with his heart?

 

MY THOUGHTS:

if you’ve read anything by Jill Kemerer, then you’re going to enjoy her new series!

Clint Romine is a good man, but lacking in confidence in a big way. It’s a bit refreshing to find a man who’s willing to go above and beyond when doing his job, yet who is humble and down to earth. I think that’s one of the reasons Lexi Harrington is attracted to him–he’s the opposite of most cowboys she’s known.

The Rancher’s Mistletoe Bride is the first book in Jill Kemerer’s newest series, the Wyoming Cowboys series, and I can’t wait to read the sequels. I loved this story! I love how Clint does his job, and watches over Lexi, too. I was lost when he prepared chicken noodle soup for her!

But that’s enough chitchat. I don’t want to ruin the story for you. I’d rather you read the story for yourself.

Happy reading!

Peace in the Valley | Ruth Logan Herne

 

 

Today I am reviewing Peace in the Valley, the third book in the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

In spite of their differences, Trey Walker Stafford knows he owes his life to cowboy and legendary rancher Sam Stafford–the uncle who rescued him after his parents’ death.

Trey had left the Double S Ranch to pursue music against Sam’s wishes, but returns to central Washington when he learns he’s the best match for a procedure that could save Sam’s life.

Although Trey’s found country music fame and success, he’s also endured the tragic loss of his wife. He croons about love, but struggles with a yawning emptiness he can’t explain.

Overwhelmed by a growing list of challenges, but mistrustful of Stafford men, single mother Lucy Carlton reluctantly accepts Trey’s help to revive her crumbling farm when Sam instructs him to repay the overdue debt to her family.

As the two grow closer, Trey slowly begins to open his heart to this beautiful woman and strives to let go of the grief he’s held for years. Lucy has a complicated history of her own. Can Trey accept her as she is, learn to forgive the past, and find the elusive peace he’s sought for so long?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

This is another series by Ruth Logan Herne for my TOP SHELF!

When Trey Stafford learns that his uncle needs him, he returns home, prepared to do the right thing. While he’s there, he meets Lucy Carlton, who needs his help, too.

This is such an intriguing story. . . a member of my family had the same procedure, so it was very familiar to me. The story was great, with colorful characters facing more than one challenge.

Don’t miss out on this wonderful new book from Ruth Logan Herne.

Home on the Range | Ruth Logan Herne

 

 

Today I am reviewing Home on the Range, the second book in the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

A cowboy romance with a heart of gold…

In Home on the Range author Ruth Logan Herne returns readers to the Double S Ranch where God and family are first, but love is certain to follow the Stafford menfolk.

Nick made all the wrong choices for all the wrong reasons. His father had failed at marriage and fatherhood. Nick was determined to show him up. He’d be a better husband, better father and a better ranch manager than Sam Stafford ever hoped to be.

But Nick’s wife Whitney hated the ranch and she walked out on Nick and their two beautiful daughters three years ago. For a long time Nick pretended everything was fine and when his stubborn nature is finally challenged by trouble with his young girls, he’s faced with the changes he should have made long ago.

Psychologist Dr. Elsa Andreas had a thriving family therapy practice, a school commission, a good life, but tragedy pushes Elsa to walk away from her life. Three years later, she’s tucked herself in the backwoods of Gray’s Glen.

When her sister encourages her to help Nick Stafford’s daughters, Elsa takes a chance. But Nick’s ex-wife comes back to town, threatening the girls’ newfound stability. Can Nick find the forgiveness and Else the courage to build their own “Home on the Range”?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Back In The Saddle was so much fun to read . . . Home On The Range is every bit as good, although I won’t say it’s all fun. Ruthy deals with some painful subjects, such as divorce, desertion, plus a panic attack or two thrown in for good measure.

Nick Stafford has made his share of mistakes, but he’s determined to do his best, where his two daughters are concerned. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that his best is enough — his oldest daughter is failing school — and has more attitude than she needs!

Elsa needs to rejoin the world, starting with helping Nick and his girls. Can she overcome her past long enough to reach for a future that includes a family? You won’t know until you read the book – and you really should read the book. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did… to the very end.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic new series from Ruth Logan Herne.

Back In The Saddle | Ruth Logan Herne

 

 

Today I am reviewing Back In The Saddle, the first book in the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

The Prodigal Is Coming Home

It’s been a long time since Colt Stafford shrugged off his cowboy legacy for shiny Manhattan loafers and a promising career on Wall Street.

But when stock market manipulations leave him financially strapped, the oldest son of legendary rancher Sam Stafford decides to return to the sprawling Double S ranch in Gray’s Glen, Washington.

He’s broke, but not broken, and it’s time to check in with his ailing father, and get his legs back under him by climbing into the saddle again.

He doesn’t expect to come home to a stranger pointing a loaded gun at his chest— a tough yet beautiful woman that Sam hired as the house manager. Colt senses there’s more to Angelina Morales than meets the eye and he’s determined to find out what she’s hiding…and why.

Colt’s return brings new challenges. Younger brother Nick has been Sam’s right-hand man at the ranch for years and isn’t thrilled at having Colt insert himself into Double S affairs. And the ranch’s contentious relationship with the citizens of Gray’s Glen asks all the Stafford men to examine their hearts about what it truly means to be a neighbor.

And as Wall Street recovers, will Colt succumb to the call of the financial district’s wealth and power—or finally the courage to stay in the saddle for good?

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Ruth Logan Herne is beyond amazing!

Somehow, even though I’ve read most of her books, she continues to amaze me with her wonderful stories, full of interesting, colorful characters, living in small towns and/or big cities.

Back In The Saddle was so much fun to read . . . Angelina Morales isn’t happy to see Colt Stafford return to the Double S ranch – and she isn’t afraid to show it. Colt comes crawling back, broke and hoping to step back into the place he held before he left home.

But will it be as easy as he thinks? You won’t know until you read the book – and you should read the book. I’m sure you’ll be as entertained as I was… all the way to the end.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic new book from Ruth Logan Herne.

Cowboy Bodyguard | Dana Mentink

 

 

Today I am reviewing Cowboy Bodyguard, the third novel in the Gold Country Cowboys series by Dana Mentink.

 

Here is a brief synopsis:

She must protect a baby…

With her secret husband’s help!

In this Gold Country Cowboys novel, Jack Thorn gets a surprise call from the woman he married in secret years ago.

Shannon Livingston needs his protection for herself and the baby she’s hiding from a biker gang targeting the mother.

Now Jack must help Shannon, even if shielding her means pretending to be a true husband to the only woman he’s ever loved..

 

MY THOUGHTS:

WOW!  This is one scary situation!

I’m glad I don’t work in a place where the bad guys show up!

Gold Country Cowboys!

This series has been totally awesome!

In the last book we read Owen Thorn’s story… now it’s his brother’s turn. Jack Thorn is every bit the cowboy — and here — that you would expect.

When his wife, whom he married in secret years ago, contacts him that she’s heading his way, he’s more than a little surprised, but he goes to meet her. And when she shows up with a baby, well, he doesn’t let her down.

Now he’s determined to protect her and the baby she’s protecting, from the biker gang who’s after them.  I don’t want to spoil the story for you, so pick up your own copy and dig in!  But you’ll want to read Cowboy Christmas Guardian and Treacherous Trails first to get stories from other secondary characters in this book.

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!

A Baby For the Minister | Laurel Blount

 


Today I am reviewing A Baby For the Minister, a Love Inspired book by Laurel Blount.

Here is a brief synopsis:

A minister with a heart of goldand a pregnant bride with no groom!

Jilted at the altar, Natalie Davis has no one she can turn to – until Jacob Stone steps in.

The single minister’s drawn to the beautiful mummy-to-be and wants to help…even if it goes against his congregation’s wishes and could cost him his job.

But when she refuses to accept charity, can he convince her she’s more than a ministry project?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

A Baby For the Minister was an enduring story. . . and the title is perfect. When Natalie is jilted at the altar, her substitute minister, Jacob Stone, steps in to help her.

I loved how Jacob refused to worry about his job. . . or the gossip flying all around. . . and did whatever he could to make Natalie’s life in an old, run-down house, bearable.

This is the first book I’ve read by Laurel Blount — but it certainly won’t be the last. Entertaining from beginning to end, you’ll love meeting Jacob Stone. . . and his enthusiasm for helping others! He is truly a blessing. . . and I hope this story blesses you as much as it did me.

Happy Reading!

 

Blessings!

Treacherous Trails | Dana Mentink

 

 

Today I am reviewing Treacherous Trails, the second novel in the Gold Country Cowboys series by Dana Mentink.

 

Here is a brief synopsis:

Falsely accused…

Can she escape the real killer?

In this Gold Country Cowboys story, farrier Ella Cahill is accused of murder—and only former marine Owen Thorn, her brother’s best friend, can help clear her name.

Now with someone trying to kill Ella, Owen must protect her…despite his promise to her brother to stay away from her.

But can they work together to find the true killer before she becomes the next to die?

 

MY THOUGHTS:

WOW!  That is one nasty killer!

I’m glad I didn’t choose to read this at bedtime. . . this is definitely a great story, but one that scared the heebee jeebee’s out of me!

This new series is really suspenseful. . . and awesome!

Gold Country Cowboys!

The code of the West rules the land for these men!

And thank goodness it does! Owen Thorn certainly lives by the code. Ella has known Owen practically her whole life; the kid sister who, of course, had a crush on big, brooding brother figure. Now he’s determined to protect her from the big, bad guys. And that’s a good thing — because the big, bad guy is determined to get her! And that’s all I’m telling. . .

I don’t want to spoil the story for you, so pick up your own copy and dig in!

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!
