Everything changed for Elyssa Philbin after the stock market crashed and she ended up with nothing. Although she wasn’t a Catholic, the generous nuns took her in. Now her assignment is to take the last group of orphans west. Might she find a different future for herself there?
Bill Ward had lost his wife and baby, but he longs for a family. He’s trying to follow God’s plan for his life and perhaps that will include the pretty woman who has escorted the two orphans to him.
This turned out to be a sweet story, but it was very short and read much too quickly. It really seemed more like a good start to a longer book, but what was here was enjoyable.
Frayed Dreams - 2.5
Grace Bolling had an idyllic childhood in many ways as she grew up in a small English village on the coast. However, when her parents sent her to York to work with her aunt as a seamstress, life becomes much more complicated, especially with a murderer about.
William Stanley is only the second son of an earl, but his father still expects to plan his life for him. William doesn’t want to marry selfish, spoiled Lady Elisabeth Ashfield, who flirts too boldly like his father expects. He finds Grace is a fresh contrast, because she’s real, honest, and what he’s been looking for.
This book had so much wrong I hardly know where to begin. At the start, the conversations were so open and revealing of feelings between people who had just met that it felt unnatural and saccharine. It had many grammatical errors and misused words, and they became quite distracting. Much of the convoluted plot didn’t make sense to me, For instance, why would Lady Rose bring everyone she knew in her social circle, both male and female, together to help plan a harvest ball that would include both servants and the elite (which didn’t mix socially). And would there have been a costume party held for tenants who are living in poverty? The end of the book had excerpts from another novel by Darlia Sawyer. No thanks.
Bootheel Bachelor - 5
Veda Kirby has had a hard life with stubborn brothers and father who are running moonshine and marrying only to have her husband die a few months later. Now, she just wants to start a business and get out on her own, away from her out-of-control family.
Jason Stevens came from a background of abuse and he’s afraid he might become like his father if her marries. His new job as a Missouri Highway Patrolman will be satisfying enough, but he couldn’t subject a wife to the worry the danger of his career would produce. One of his first assignments is to stop the bootlegging activity in his area. That sets him up in conflict with many families around, like the Kirby’s.
I really enjoyed this story. I found no errors, it read smoothly, and it held my interest. In addition, the setting nor the plot were usual for a romance novel, giving it a certain uniqueness and special appeal.
Rag Doll - 4.5
Ramona Hathaway’s stepfather is an abusive drunk, and he mother dismisses anything he does. When preppy bullies attack her for her one ragged dress, Ben Farris comes to her rescue. A lasting friendship develops, but he’s from a rich family, so Ramona can’t see a future with him. She’ll feel blessed if she can somehow work in the fashion industry as she desires.
Thus begins a wonderful story that has very few errors. The worst one was calling a horses hoof a “paw.” I didn’t like how Ramona gave into Ben’s father, but it had a great ending until the last sentence that left me scratching my head. It would have been better without it.
Sugarplum Hearts - 5
I found a confusing start for this book set in Fayetteville, NC, in 1789. There were too many characters to keep straight with few if any explanations of who they were. And wouldn’t sugary confection sculptures have broken making the long journey to Wilmington on the back of a horse? Regardless, however, I found this a wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
