“Wishing on Buttercups” by Miralee Ferrell

Release Date: February 1st 2014

Wishing on ButtercupsCan Love Survive When Secrets Collide? She’d kept her secrets safely hidden—those from her past, and those in the present. Some things, Beth Roberts knows, a lady simply doesn’t share, even in the 1880’s West. The townspeople would never understand. No one ever has. Jeffery Tucker, a handsome young writer, has kept his own secrets. He doesn’t have a right to pry into Beth’s affairs but finds himself strangely drawn to her and intrigued by the whiff of mystery surrounding her. Beth knows that one day someone will unravel the threads of her past. And when two men from her past arrive, the truth might just hurt . . . Beth’s future and her heart. As shadowy memories surface, Beth sketches the scenes she sees and is shocked by what—and who—her illustrations reveal. Dare she risk her heart again?

Book Spotlight – The Husband Hunt by Karen Kirst

I like to read a variety of Book Genres, including Historical books.  Some of my favorite’s include the “Love Inspired Historical” books, — with the Romance, vivid settings and a little suspense,… there is something for everyone!  I recently received this book, and I’m looking forward to reading it!

The Husband HuntThe Husband Hunt by Karen Kirst is # 4 in the Smokey Mountain Matches series, but it could also be read as a “stand-alone” book.

About the Book:

Sophie Tanner gave up hoping for Nathan O’Malley’s approval—and love—long ago. Getting married is the only way to protect her younger brother and keep her family’s Smoky Mountain farm. As much as she’d like Nathan to be the groom, he can’t seem to get past their friendship…or their differences.  Since they were children, Nathan has known Sophie was too impulsive, too headstrong. She’s forever rushing into situations without thinking them through, like this scheme to snare a husband in under a month. Nathan always thought he’d  fall in love with someone like himself—sensible, cautious, levelheaded. Sophie is his polar opposite. So why can’t he picture anyone else at his side?
