The Cowboys

The Cowboys by Jennifer Uhlarik My rating: 5 of 5 stars What’s better than a book with a handsome cowboy for the hero? A collection of four stories with four handsome cowboy heroes! These stories will tug at your heart and give you a chuckle before leaving you with that satisfied *awww…* ending. Most importantlyContinue reading “The Cowboys”

The Brightest Hope

The Brightest Hope by Naomi Dawn Musch My rating: 5 of 5 stars I wasn’t sure how the author was going to take the “bad boy” of book #2 and make him the hero of book #3 … but she nailed it! What a great end to this trilogy. Two emotionally wounded people who areContinue reading “The Brightest Hope”

Legacy Rejected

Legacy Rejected by Robin Patchen My rating: 5 of 5 stars Another wonderful adventure in Nutfield from author Robin Patchen. As always, her characters are engaging and quirky, the setting is *the* small town we all wished we lived in, and there are parts of the story that keep you guessing. While it’s fun toContinue reading “Legacy Rejected”

The Softest Breath

The Softest Breath by Naomi Dawn Musch My rating: 5 of 5 stars Wow. This is the second book in the series. I loved the first, The Deepest Sigh, and this one might even be better.

Yours Truly, Thomas

Yours Truly, Thomas by Rachel Fordham My rating: 3 of 5 stars There is a lot to like about this story.

My Dearest Dietrich: A Novel of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Lost Love by Amanda Barratt My rating: 4 of 5 stars No history geek worth his or her salt hasn’t heard of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Including me.

A Reluctant Belle

Reluctant Belle by Beth White My rating: 5 of 5 stars I loved Beth White’s first trilogy. Somehow, I missed book one of this new series, but I’ll be picking up my copy soon! This is a post-Civil War series set in an area – Mississippi – that I haven’t read much about before. WhileContinue reading “A Reluctant Belle”

Mail-Order Refuge

Mail-Order Refuge by Cindy Regnier My rating: 5 of 5 stars I was one of those who thought that the mail-order bride story had been done to death – but! – then came “Mail-Order Refuge” and changed my mind. I loved the humor, the spunkiness, and the bit of suspense that all rolled together inContinue reading “Mail-Order Refuge”

Cameo Courtships: 4 Stories of Women Whose Lives Are Touched by a Legendary Gift by Susanne Dietze My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the first Barbour historical romance collection I’ve read since they’ve changed the format to just four novellas per book. While the collections have always been written around a theme, “CameoContinue reading “Cameo Courtships”
