I’ve been overwhelmed with reading lately! In fact, I’m in the middle of quite a few books right now (I think 4 fiction…?). Anyways, I’m trying to get all caught up with all my reviews. I still have a ton to read for NetGalley and I have had a few hard copies of books coming in from Bethany House/Blogging for Books. So, I’m definitely enjoying all this reading! But I can’t wait to get back to the point where I’m only reading ONE book at a time. For now, here are two books that I am currently reading:
A Bride for All Seasons
Margaret Brownley, Debra Clopton,
Mary Connealy & Robin Lee Hatcher
Book Description via Goodreads:
1800s mail-order bride catalogs facilitated many happy marriages. Here are the stories of four couples who owe their wedded bliss to creative editing by The Hitching Post publisher.
“And Then Came Spring”—Margaret Brownley
Sheriff Tom Garrett wants vengeance on his brother’s murderers, but he must think of his orphaned nephew. Then Mary-Jo shows up, swearing she married Tom’s brother by proxy and he’d neglected to mention a son.
“An Ever-After Summer”—Debra Clopton
Widower Matt McConnell wrote his ad with no room for misunderstanding—Bible believers need not apply. But Bible-thumping Ellie shows up on his doorstep. Matt’s so desperate for her help that he accepts.
“Autumn’s Angel”—Robin Lee Hatcher
Luvena Abbott is a singing sensation in New York. But as guardian to her brother’s children, she has few options to provide a home. Clay Birch won an abandoned theater in a poker game. The Hitching Post editor thinks they’ll make a perfect match.
“Winter Wedding Bells”—Mary Connealy
David Laramie is looking for a woman to care for his children. In exchange he’ll make her financially comfortable for life. But no woman wants to marry a dying man. Then Megan responds to his ad. It seems his “edited” letter contained no mention of him dying.
I have read the first two novellas so far and have enjoyed them very much. Those were actually the two authors that I have never read anything from so I’m excited to read the Robin Lee Hatcher and Mary Connealy novellas!
The other book I am currently reading is:
Book Description via Goodreads:
When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested in art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s empire.
The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?
This is the first book of Becky Wade that I’ve read. I have had My Stubborn Heart on my shelf for a while but haven’t gotten around to it. When I got the chance to review this book, I jumped on it. It looked like an enjoyable read and the cover is just beautiful! I am happy to say that I am definitely enjoying this book! I am about halfway done 🙂
What are you reading this Wednesday?
