Review: A Stolen Heart by Amanda Cabot


From the Back of the Book

From afar, Cimarron Creek seems like an idyllic town tucked in the Texas Hill Country. But when former schoolteacher Lydia Crawford steps onto its dusty streets in 1880, she finds a town with a deep-seated resentment of Northerners - like her. Lydia won't let that get her down, though. All will be well when she's reunited with her fiance.

But when she discovers he has disappeared - and that he left behind a pregnant wife - Lydia is at a loss about what to do next. The handsome sheriff urges her to trust him, but can she trust anyone in this town where secrets are as prevalent as bluebonnets in spring?

Bestselling author Amanda Cabot invites you into Texas's storied past to experience adventure, mystery - and love.

Memorable Monday - September 10, 2018


It's Memorable Monday! This idea was created by Becca from The Becca Files to highlight books that we've read in the past and are memorable to us. 

This week I'm highlighting You're Loved No Matter What by Holley Gerth. I've never read a book by Holley Gerth that I didn't absolutely love! I usually have my quiet times in the morning before work and when I incorporate a book by this author into that time, I feel like I've had my own personal cheerleader cheering me on before I head to the office. 

One of my favorite quotes from this book is "Excellence is doing what you can, with what you have, where you are, as you are." I feel a lot of pressure at work that I cannot make a mistake and should be able to answer everyone's questions immediately. I look at this quote often to remind myself that I just have to do my best. This is just one of many great bits of advice from this book.

Review: A Heart Restored by Elizabeth Maddrey


About the Book

"She renovates old houses. Can he restore her heart?
Deidre McIntyre didn’t exactly purchase the gorgeous old home in the Shenandoah Mountains on a whim. The building had seen better days, but she had the skills—and the time—to fix it up. And maybe it would provide the fresh start she was looking for.
Local handyman Jeremiah Crawford has a soft spot for Peacock Hill. When someone from out of town purchases it, he swings by to offer to help fix it up…and investigate the new owner’s plans for the property. The pixie-like Deidre isn’t at all what he expects, but he’s happy to hang around and enjoy the view.
When Deidre’s ex-boyfriend, a popular TV house flipper, shows up demanding a piece of the action, Jeremiah must decide if Deidre—and Peacock Hill—are worth fighting for. Falling in love wasn’t on the blueprints, but it might just be worth the change in plans."
