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.

The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage | Valerie Comer

 

 

Today I am reviewing The Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage, the fourth story in the Saddle Springs Romance series by Valerie Comer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Rivals form a marriage of convenience in this contemporary cowboy romance, but plan not to fall in love!

When Spencer Haviland receives registered mail from his great-uncle’s attorney, he figures he’ll sell his upcoming inheritance after the old man dies. After all, he’s anything but a cowboy. But when Spencer’s life suddenly unravels, he retreats to the rundown Montana ranch only to discover his cousin’s widow and child firmly entrenched.

The Rocking H is the most secure home Carmen Haviland has ever known until Spencer arrives, claiming to be Great-Uncle Howard’s heir. But with the attorney’s revelation that his client is considering bestowing the ranch to charity instead, Carmen reluctantly agrees to Spencer’s rash plan for the sake of her daughter.

Will a marriage of convenience offer them both what they seek, or will their vows become anything but convenient?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

YES!  I knew it!  I just knew it!

And now comes the hard part… I can’t tell you what I’m referring to, or I’ll spoil the story — and I cannot do that! But believe me, I am certain you are going to LOVE this story as much as I do. I love it so much, I honestly can’t wait to read it again. So I’m going to read the whole series again when the next book in the series comes out!

Awesome characters!  Awesome story!  Awesome ending!

The Cowboy’s Romantic Dreamer | Valerie Comer

 

 

Today I am reviewing The Cowboy’s Romantic Dreamer, the third story in the Saddle Springs Romance series by Valerie Comer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Opposites attract in this romance with a grumpy cowboy burned by love and a bubbly romance editor with (almost) all the answers!

Burned by love, Trevor Delgado has pushed aside all his personal dreams in favor of expanding his family’s ranching empire in western Montana. That’s what any hardworking, dependable firstborn son should do, right?

He’s not lonely, just solitary. All he needs is a saddle beneath him, the mountain breeze on his face… and no time to think.

Editing hundreds of romance novels has made Denae Archibald an expert on love. She knows how it’s supposed to go… and tall, dark and mysterious Trevor Delgado is exactly her kind of hero. If only her issues weren’t enough to send any worthy cowboy galloping for the range.

How can the romantic dreamer and the guarded cowboy kindle their hopes for a future together?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Oh, how I loved the story of Trevor and Denae!

Trevor reminded me of the many, many people who have had a bad experience and are determined to close off their hearts from love. it seems a safer place to be, but it’s a lonely one… as Trevor finally realizes… and he quickly decides to date Denae before he loses his courage.

What a wonderful story! Once you begin reading it, you won’t be able to put it down until the end. Don’t miss this exciting new series by Valerie Comer!

Happy Reading!

 

God bless you!

The Cowboy’s Mixed-Up Matchmaker | Valerie Comer

 

 

Today I am reviewing The Cowboy’s Mixed-Up Matchmaker, the second story in the Saddle Springs Romance series by Valerie Comer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Friends don’t let friends turn thirty… single.

It’s been almost fourteen long years since two teens made a pact to marry each other if both remained single at thirty. But the nearer the time comes, the more Lauren Yanovich steps up her matchmaking game to let James off the hook. Not that he likely remembers.

James Carmichael has been waiting forever, praying Lauren will be waiting for him. But, just when the end is in sight, she begins dating someone else, and his hopes crumble.

The Cowboy’s Christmas Reunion | Valerie Comer

 

 

Today I am reviewing The Cowboy’s Christmas Reunion, the first story in the Saddle Springs Romance series by Valerie Comer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

When Kade Delgado joins his buddies in a Cowboy Santa program to shower Christmas blessings on old folks and single moms, he doesn’t expect his former fiancée to return to Saddle Springs, in need and with a child in tow. Does God really expect him to treat Cheri the same as the others on his new Christmas list?

Cheri Mackenzie has never forgiven herself for the pain she caused Kade by fleeing a week before their wedding, but undoing the past is impossible. Circumstances force her back to her aging grandparents’ Montana ranch, where Kade, now a widower with a toddler, is making himself cheerfully indispensable. When she receives kindness instead of the hostility she surely deserves, she can’t help but pray for a Christmas reunion with the cowboy she’s never stopped loving.

Is there any hope for a second chance at love?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I was hoping Valerie would publish a story about cowboys — and now she has!

I don’t want to give anything away, so I’m going to be especially careful about saying much… except to encourage you to read this story. It’s SOOOOO good! I am thrilled that Valerie wrote about Kade and Cheri and their life story. If you are a lover of romance, you’ll love The Cowboy’s Christmas Reunion!  Stay with me… I’ll be reviewing the rest of the series this week.

Top 25 Authors of 2018

 

 

 

 

This was a VERY difficult list to create… first, I began gathering the names of all my favorite authors. After re-checking my bookcases and bookshelf blog, I found that I have well over 100 names! Now, this might not sound like a lot to some of you, but I was astounded that I had that many favorite authors – those whom I refuse to part with their books!

I began paring down… whew, that was rough! What I really wanted to do was to name them all — but that seemed to defeat the purpose of listing the TOP chosen few.

I tried — I really did — and I still didn’t get everyone on the list that I hoped to!

So… without further adieu.

Here’s my personal list of the TOP TWENTY-FIVE AUTHORS for 2019:

   Jennifer Beckstrand    Vannetta Chapman    Valerie Comer    Rachel L. Miller

   Dana Mentink    JC Morrows    Macy Morrows    Tricia Goyer    Ruth Logan Herne

   Jean C. Gordon    Barbara Cameron    Suzanne Woods Fisher    Charlotte Hubbard 

   Ruth Reid    Shelley Shepard Gray    Molly Jebber    Kathy Fuller    Kelly Irvin

   Lilian Jackson Braun    Emma Miller   Amos Wyse    Laura J. Marshall    

   Grace Livingston Hill    Philip Gulley    Jan Karon

 

God bless you!

Flavors of Forever | Valerie Comer

 

Today I am reviewing Flavors of Forever, the fifth book in the Urban Farm Fresh  Romance series by Valerie Comer.

Here is a brief synopsis:

God’s love is the gold mending broken hearts and dreams

As her friends pair off, Kassidy North thinks happily-ever-after has passed her by, but she’s too busy running a busy bistro and once-a-month cooking club to be bothered by it. Much. Until a single dad moves into the neighborhood and threatens to invade her dreams and well-ordered life.

Metal sculptor Wesley Ferguson is a cynic when it comes to romance, but something in Kass makes him want to believe again. He’s not so sure he agrees when she insists forever love begins with God. What has God ever done for him?

Unable to avoid one another in the close-knit community of Bridgeview, Kass and Wesley develop the beginnings of a friendship. But when relationships break around them, can they see God as the glue capable of holding broken pieces together… forever?

5. Flavors of Forever

The Urban Farm Fresh Romance series follows the adventures, romantic and otherwise, of a group of friends in the fictional neighborhood of Bridgeview in Spokane, Washington.

A Christian romance series, these urban farming stories explore what an urban community focused on local food might look like: raising goats, chickens, and bees in the heart of the city while sharing in food projects and engaging in each others’ lives through community gardens and permaculture. Each story stands alone.

While the Urban Farm Fresh Romance series shares a world and some characters from the Farm Fresh Romance series, it stands complete in its own setting.

MY THOUGHTS:

Valerie Comer has a wonderful way of writing Christian fiction. Her characters real, not to mention colorful and interesting. And the emphasis on fresh foods is an awesome addition to her books!

Kassidy North is a great character… she’s been working 24/7 trying to run her busy bistro, plus an added once-a-month cooking class, but lately she’s been wondering if she’ll ever have any time to herself. When Wesley Ferguson and his son visit the bistro, he’s charmed by the lovely Kass.

Meanwhile, Wesley is being introduced, thanks to his friends, to something new and a bit scary… church — and God. When Kass learns that Wesley isn’t a Christian, her thoughts and feelings are put on hold, hoping that Wesley will make the right decision and become a Christian.

Don’t miss this exciting sequel in the Urban Farm Fresh Romance series!

Happy Reading!

 

God bless you!
