The Lieutenant’s Bargain is the second Regina Jennings book I have read. What I have found each time is that reading her stories leaves me anxious to read more of them. Her imaginative, quirky, adventurous writing with such charming characters appeals greatly to me. After her stagecoach is robbed, leaving […]
Once again, Janalyn Voigt writes a story full of action and intrigue. With human trafficking, stagecoach robberies, lynchings, dangers from the Indians, kidnapping and more, Stagecoach to Liberty brings the Montana Gold Rush to life. The characters were appealing. I could understand the motivation that drove Elsa to indenture herself […]
Another week, another book by Shanna Hatfield in The Friendly Beasts of Faraday series! The third in this series released today with the final book releasing next Friday.
I confess that there are some things in my past that I would like to forget. Just wipe them out and pretend they never happened. And there are things in my life that are delightful that I love to pull out of my memories and mull over. There is a […]
It’s crazy to think about how many Christmas stories I’ve already read since July! I do enjoy Christmas novellas. They are just the right length to allow me to get into the story, to be well-developed enough to make it believable and to make the characters relatable, and not so […]

“These are like steak brownies!”
It is the strangest compliment I’ve ever gotten on my baking, but in some ways, one of the nicest.
I appreciate how from the very start I was pulled into the world of Mountain Home, Colorado, 1887. That is, after all, one of the reasons I read historical novels.
We’ve tried to locate the ancient split oak tree at least two different times. Each time we have wandered the trails, the overgrowth and destruction from previous hurricanes have prevented us from finding the correct path to get there. Yet we’ve been told (and seen the pictures) that the 200-year-old […]
“I fell off a stepladder and broke my right foot and fractured my left wrist. Can you come out and help us?” my mom requested. I am fortunate to have a job that can be done remotely and a boss who allows it on occasion so I flew out the […]
“Reclaimed water. Do not drink!” I’ve seen this warning in multiple municipal areas and when I do, I hesitate to even get close enough to get sprayed by the flow. We’ve had electronics that have needed to be repaired during their warranty period and each time have discovered that once […]
