Wrangler in Petticoats by Mary Connealy - Review of the second book in the Sophie's Daughters series
Another great book by Mary, another book I didn't want to put down. I like the way she seems to make you feel you are right there in the action and believe me with these McClellan women there is action in what they do. If you haven't read any of her books you need to. Start with the Lassoed in Texas series, go on to the Montana Marriages series and end up with the Sophies's Daughers series. I have one book left in this series and then I don't know what I'll do!

I have never read one of Mary's books that I didn't love and this one is no different. I have had this series on my TBR list for a while and finally got started on them, I should have done so sooner. I really enjoyed they way the characters connected with their eyes, I could just imagine myself looking on when this was happening and admiring the love they felt in order for one to gain strength from the other just through the eye contact. Oh yes, this looks like it will be another 'must read' series for Christian/Fiction/Romance book lovers. Thank you yet again for another great book Mary!

This is the first book by Elizabeth that I have read and I really enjoyed it. I liked the story and the writing style. She held my interest with a little bit of love and some intrigue. A nice clean story with a little bit of sorrow always pulls me in. I will be reading more of her books.

The Kissing Bridge by Tricia Goyer - Review of the third book in the Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
Oh, Tricia did great with this book! I loved the characters in this story, there were a few from the first two books in the series, and I love Millie's "God Box". There is a lot going on in this book and Tricia keeps you wanting to keep on reading. There is a wonderful ending too! I'm guessing there are more books coming in this series and I am anxiously waiting for it, it's not even listed anywhere yet so she's keeping us guessing on that I guess.
It has been a while since I read the first book in this series, "The Wounded Heart", but as soon as I started reading I was pulled right back into the the series. I love Adina's writing and look forward to getting the third book in this series, "The Tempted Soul". The series is about three women who are very close friends and they are all very important in each book even though the focus is on a different woman in each story. If you like Amish stories I'm sure you will enjoy Adina's books.

I am always pleased to find a book about the Amana Colonies, that is what I knew them as when I was a child growing up in the midwest, eastern Nebraska. I have visited the 'Colonies' but have learned so much more about them by reading books like Melanie's. She did a wonderful job of holding my interest and teaching me more about the 'Community of True Inspiration' and their beliefs.
I have read other books Melanie has written and really enjoyed them too. I think I have all of Melanie's 'Love Finds You' books and I'm looking forward to reading them as I go through my bookshelves of TBR books.

I really enjoyed this story as it told just how strong one woman could be, not only in proving her land up without her husband but mostly her very strong faith in the Lord. This was a nice short read that I didn't want to put down. If you like Christian Historical books I'm sure you will enjoy this one. Thank your Rose for doing such a fine job, I will be looking for more of your books.
