It’s been a while since I’ve been able to really read a book and I sure have missed it! Amanda Cabot has brought me back. Although it took me a while (due to my health, NOT my interest level), I was happy to have another Cimarron Creek book in my possession. It’s such a light-hearted series and just what I needed. This is supposed to be the final chapter in the CC Trilogy and I am really sorry to hear that. It feels like family and I hope to see more in the future!

Amanda Cabot rounded out this series with sweet midwife, Thea, and the kind-hearted Texas Ranger, Jackson. Besides that, we get to see all the characters we’ve grown to love in the small town. Like I said, the story is light and an easy read. I highly recommend getting the other books in the series so you can follow along with all the people and their continuing stories. It definitely can be read as a stand-alone, but you wouldn’t get as much out of it. So, get going and grab your copies! Links in the pics below.

Thanks so much for this copy! As always, this is my honest review. Here’s to many more!

The Reluctant Duchess

by Roseanna M. White

Another fabulous read from Roseanna M. White. In this book, she continues on with the characters from The Lost Heiress. The Duke of Nottingham is back and as brilliant as ever!! As he seeks God’s will at every turn, he is surprised by what God asks him to do next…

What a great book. It captures the good and the bad of the ton during the Edwardian era. It’s beautifully written and the characters have so much depth. God is so intertwined with this storyline that there wasn’t anywhere that had to stop to include Him. That’s so rare in a story and it’s VERY appreciated. No token prayer here and there in this one!

I love that Roseanna is not scared to talk about heavy issues either. Women were property that had the purpose of providing their spouse with money (by way of a dowry) and an heir. They were easily taken advantage of and ruined for life. Speaking out about rape and bullying is much needed even now.

If you have not read the first book, you will need to. The story will be confusing without. It’s definitely not a stand-alone novel. I do highly recommend! All of you coming off of 6 seasons of Downton, this is your chance to get an Edwardian fix!!! Just click on the links below to get your copy:

Thanks so much for this great book in exchange for my review. As always, this is my honest opinion! Here’s to many more!!

Be sure to check out my exciting face-off with Roseanna!

At Love’s Bidding

by Regina Jennings

First of all, you know its going to be a great book when the cover is so beautiful! Secondly, it’s Regina Jennings! Come on!!

In this fun and offbeat story, Miranda Wimplegate is a proper Boston woman that heads out to the middle of nowhere to find a painting that was unintentionally sold at her auction house. Once she shows up in this little town, she is confused about who there would need or want such a fancy painting. While working with the local auction house, she is forced to spend her days with a scruffy backwoodsman, Wyatt Ballentine.

Of course, love blooms in the Ozarks 🙂 Another great story by Regina. Lots of fun, great characters, good pace and interesting storyline. I would highly recommend!

Thank you, Litfuse, Netgalley and Bethany House, for this great read. As always, this is my honest opinion! Here’s to many more!!
