Here’s a great book I’m excited to tell you about, and there’s a giveaway with it (so don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter at the end to get your name in the drawing). I just finished The Stars Above Northumberland by Anita Stansfield yesterday, and it was one of those breezy books to read. By that I mean I turned the pages so fast in my quest to finish and figure out what would happen that there was a steady breeze blowing on my face the whole time. Too bad it’s winter. I had to put on a jacket it was getting so chilly. Continue reading
Today I have a cover reveal for one of my favorite authors. Sarah Eden has a new book coming out in early September (sigh! I know. That’s a long time away). But here is a little blurb and peek at the cover to get you excited for when this one releases.
Title: Long Journey Home (A Hope Springs Novel)
Author: Sarah M. Eden
Release Date: September 4, 2018
Widowed by war, Maura O’Connor has raised her son alone under the weight of poverty in the unforgiving slums of New York City. That harsh and difficult life has taken a toll on them both. Desperate to save her son from the misery around them, she moves them both to the tiny western town of Hope Springs, where her late husband’s family lives, hoping that the decade of silence between them does not mean she and Aidan will be rejected outright. Her son needs family, and she would endure anything to see him happy.
Ryan Callaghan has worked the land belonging to the late Granny Claire for years, dreaming of one day claiming it as his own. Living in his brother’s home affords him no freedom, no stability, no joy. The arrangement is even harder on his mother, whose health is quickly deteriorating. A risky investment in the land has finally begun to pay off, and he is at last in a position to secure a better future for them both. When use of the home is, without warning, offered to a newly arrived widow and her son, that future is entirely uncertain.
Both Maura and Ryan desperately need the Claire farm, for their own futures as well as those of the loved ones who depend on them. Neither can remain in Hope Springs without the house and land, but only one can claim it in the end.
***Ahhhh! September needs to hurry up and get here already. Enough said.
Have a fantastic rest of your week.
Today I’d like to introduce you to The Rebel Series by Linda Weaver Clarke, and give you a chance to win a FREE eBook from her.
These books have a mixture of romance and lots of adventure. Each book, set in the late 1700s, is a love story with mystery and suspense as a young couple and their rebel friends strive to help their country. The romance in this series can be enjoyed by young and old alike. For those who enjoy strong women characters, all three books have this theme in common. They are independent women who have an opinion and are not afraid to express it. The heroes in this series are rebels with a sense of justice. They are chivalrous and their feelings run deep for the young women they’re in love with. Continue reading
Time for another book review. This new one my Jennifer Moore is set in the Scottish Highlands in the 1800’s. She has written lots of historical romances set in different parts of the British Empire, and I’ve read a lot of her books and always like them. Here’s the blurb for Miss Leslie’s Secret: Continue reading
Time for another blog tour adventure. Pull on your petticoats and grab your spy glasses for this next book.
Wait! Did I hear you say you don’t own a petticoat?
Well, boo. 😦 I guess you’ll have to make due with a bathrobe then and hope you don’t stand out too much.
Petticoat Spy is set in Revolutionary War times in Massachusetts 1775. It was quite a delicious read, and I’m excited to tell you about it. Here’s the blurb: Continue reading
I love H.B. Moore’s Biblical novels because they give me a new way to think about old stories I grew up hearing. She makes Biblical prophets come to life in a way that astounds and thrills me. Here’s the blurb: Continue reading
I know it’s not spring right now, but this book doesn’t just cover spring. There is a blizzard, spring blossoms, and summer fun all wrapped up in its pages. This historical romance is set in the quiet village of Llanwddyn in Wales in the late 1880’s. I don’t have a clue how to say Llanwddyn. It could be pronounced Lan-widden or Yanidin or Lawden or Land Down Under depending on your mood. But I digress.
The characters in this tale are Gwen–a 16 year old girl who lives with her strict aunt; Lewis–the blacksmith’s son who is supposed to watch over Gwen for her brother, his best friend; and Thomas–an English engineer sent to the village to supervise the dam construction.
When Gwen’s brother leaves for sea and changes come to her community due to the new dam being built (which in the years to come will force the villagers to relocate), she must dig deep within herself to find happiness. Continue reading
