All Callie has to do is find a decent job, work for a year and keep her nose clean, and they will pay for Callie to attend a university in a city.

Honor Jacobs has been away for far too long. Forced to move to Houston in high school after his parent’s sudden divorce, he’s finally come home to Carson’s Bayou to put down some roots. Small town life isn’t for everyone, but it’s definitely for him.

When Callie, Honor’s childhood friend, applies for a job in his new office, a job she is not qualified for by any stretch of the imagination, he decides to give her a chance.

Was the missing tribune too close to finding the counterfeiters Glabrio is now hunting? But no matter the cost, duty and honor require him to enforce Roman law.

Orphaned as a child and taken to live with her pagan grandfather, Martina met Jesus through her step-grandmother. Their faith was a well-kept secret, even from most of their family.

No matter what she does to discourage Glabrio, he won’t leave her alone. But if he discovers her faith, will it mean her death?

When Martina rescues Glabrio from the counterfeiter’s schemes, he learns the people who risked everything to save him share the faith that got his grandfather executed. Embracing that faith could cost him the future he planned on. As an officer of the empire, it’s his duty to reject it…but what if it’s true?

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BR8KTKVS

Releasing February 28, 2023

Description

Redemption and second chances abound in this small-town, single-mom romance with a former bad boy set at Easter.
Connor Hamelin’s Kansas farm boss offers wages through the winter if he’ll try out for the annual passion play. Connor’s been drifting, but sticking around sounds good. Figuring he can channel Judas, he auditions… and is cast as Jesus. Ugh, but maybe he’ll finally understand all the religious nuts in his life.

Single mom Zoey Matthews helps in the wardrobe department for the local passion play as well as participating in crowd scenes with her young daughter. Zoey might be intrigued by the unlikely guy cast as Jesus in this year’s production, but she’s not looking for romance, especially not with an unbeliever too similar to her bad-boy ex.

Connor doesn’t deserve a chance to make amends for his past nor another chance at love. He definitely doesn’t deserve the forgiveness of the Savior he’s portraying… but God is a God of redemption and second chances.

What’s on the share? Great Books I’ve read this year and a few books other readers have loved.

Plus a FREE 6 Book Series. See the very bottom…

Let me just start by saying I am a slow reader. I enjoy reading but crawl at a snail’s pace. Still, that being said I have read some outstanding books this year. Sorry that I’m not going to mention all of them.

I love reading from new to me authors and here’s some books I loved and want to mention.

These were the first books that I’ve read by these authors and I loved them all. I cared about all the characters and wanted to see great things happen. My goodreads review are below the book’s description.

Description

As a seventeen year old, Mel Langston tried to keep her distance from Trey Breks. But, when he gets a job at her dad’s gas station, she has no choice but to get to know him…

Mel was glad she was standing behind the counter so she could steady herself. Trey Breks was good-looking in a rough-around-the-edges way. His hair was chestnut blonde and shaggy to the point where it always seemed to be in his eyes, and he had a melt-your-heart smile. He somehow made ripped jeans and a hooded sweatshirt look amazing. And the worst part? He knew it. He knew that he made girls’ knees buckle with his laid-back style, playful teasing, and infectious charm. She had heard more than a few girls on her basketball team talking about their outings with him. Mel refused to be another victim. She just needed her teenage hormones to listen to her practical and independent brain.

Now, at twenty-seven, Mel is forced to move back to her hometown where she comes face to face with Trey. Will deep roots hold Mel & Trey back or pull them together?

Love Like Dandelion Roots is a sweet, clean, small town romantic comedy.

Description 

A gifted trainer in a time women are not allowed to race, Nora Fenton prefers horses to men. They’re easier to handle, they’re more reliable, and they never tell her what to do. After her father’s passing, Nora is determined to save her struggling horse farm, starting with entering her prize colt into the harness races at the 1905 Mississippi and West Alabama Fair. If she wins, she may have a chance at independence. But when a stranger arrives and starts asking disconcerting questions, she suspects he may have other motives than unseating her in the training job that is rightfully hers.

Silas Cavallero will do whatever it takes to solve the mystery of his father’s death–even if it means training an unwieldy colt for Nora, who wants nothing more than to see him gone. But when mysterious accidents threaten their safety and circumstances shrouded in secrets begin unlocking clues to his past, Silas will have to decide if the truth is worth the risk of ruining everything for the feisty woman he’s come to admire.

Roy’n Brenda Foster Murphree said:

I Absolutely loved this book!

Review:

This book has everything in it to satisfy my criteria for a wonderful story. I love the characters and how complex they are. Nora is not just another female with a fickle mind. I love that she’s smart and knows what she wants and Silas matches her so well. The author shows us all sides of the main characters and I can’t think of any characters I like better at the moment. I rode horses as a child and a teenager but learned quite a bit about them in this book. Bringing Nora and Silas together over training Arrow was certainly fun to read. I loved the tension between them. I also enjoyed Nora and her mother’s story as it developed. A historical romance, a little mystery, a good plot and certainly intrigue made a wonderful story that I loved. I received a copy of this book from the publisher but was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

**I didn’t know about this author so I’m excited to find out about her books.

Description

Bestselling thriller writer Tess Harrow is almost at the end of her rope when she arrives with her teenage daughter at her grandfather’s rustic cabin in the woods. She hopes this will be a time for them to heal and bond after Tess’s recent divorce, but they’ve barely made it through the door when an explosion shakes the cabin. Suddenly it’s raining fish guts and…is that a human arm?

Tess was hardly convincing Gertie that a summer without Wi-Fi and running water would be an adventure. Now she’s thrust into a murder investigation, neighbors are saying they’ve spotted Bigfoot in the woods near her cabin, and the local sheriff is the spitting image of her character Detective Gabriel Gonzales—something he’s less than thrilled about. With so much more than her daughter’s summer plans at stake, it’s up to Tess to solve this case before anyone else gets hurt.

Then her estranged father’s widow contacts her and asks her to come to Sanibel Island to help settle his affairs.

When the investigation strikes the wrong chord, Katy is determined to find the real killer before anyone else is forced to join the heavenly choir.

When Katy finds the body of Jessa Williams, a newcomer to the area with the reputation of a troublemaking flirt, under the Peanut Patch Festival stage, she’s compelled to step out of her comfort zone and snoop around. Will Katy’s sharp eye, keen wit, and a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time help the sheriff and his bumbling, good-natured deputy catch the real culprit before more lives are lost?

This humorous Christian cozy mystery has no graphic gore, bad language or sexual content, but is filled with lots of laughs, intrigue, and heart. Perfect for fans of amateur sleuths and small towns!

A Song Rewrite… Why not? On the share.

Well, this is something I used to do often…I took songs that most knew and converted them to Christian songs. It was super fun to do but I haven’t done it in a long time. This song is now book related and it was a Christmas song everyone knows but I mixed it up a little. Check it out and let me know what you think. Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Christmas Book Lists Below

This past Saturday was a wonderful day full of family and cookies!!! It’s our family tradition and it’s called “Cookie Saturday!” We’ve celebrated Cookie Saturday for many many years now and it’s always a wonderful fun-filled day with laughter, flour, and chocolate chips. We (my mom, sister, niece, daughter, son, and sometimes hubbies) make cookies to gift to family, friends, and coworkers. This year we made 28 batches of different cookies. The pictures below are not of all the cookies we made. We made those plus one batch was in the oven and four more were on the stove.

Yum-YUM!!

Here’s one of the recipes I used:

Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cookies

YIELD ABOUT 30 COOKIES

Ingredients:

1 package Red Velvet Cake Mix

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 c. butter, softened

1 large egg

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350°

2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, combine butter and cream cheese until fluffy.

3. Add egg and vanilla, mix until completely incorporated, then add cake mix and continue mixing until a dough forms (will be thick). Fold in chocolate chips.

4. Place powdered sugar in a small bowl.

5. Using a cookie scoop, form one inch dough balls and roll into powdered sugar to coat.

6. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until centers are set.

7. Cool on wire rack.

8. When completely cooled, dust with powdered sugar.

I also wrote a mini Christmas Story…please let me know what you think.

Christmas Treasure

She woke up with much surprise, with a pep in her step and a twinkle in her eye. She ran down the hallway to see all the wonders and found only one extra tiny bundle. Her smile soon faded this wasn’t what was expected but then she gave thanks and opened her package. It wasn’t much, the wrapping looked dingy, the tape wasn’t sticky, and the ribbon was tacky. Then she bowed her head and said to herself I am thankful for all and this bundles enough. She got to the box and lifted the lid she pulled out the necklace with a locket on the end. She thought it was lovely a treasure indeed, a picture inside. Something special for me. And inside the locket, she saw with a chill. She grasped it completely as only two tears fell. A picture of mother and father was there. Her mother came in and said “What’s the matter? You were supposed to wait to open your package.” “Oh mother I love it, I could wait no longer it’s the greatest present and I’ll treasure it forever.” “Did you see the back?,” the mother asked. “Look and see what it says.” Then I flipped it over and engraved so neatly was, WE WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER, TRULY, & COMPLETELY.

Here’s a individual book I pulled from one series. I love this author. Find out about this book and the author.

Click on the cover for Amazon link.

Description 

She only remembers her “zito” (fiancé) as a childhood bully. Has he matured?

All Lucia has brought with her from the old country are her love of cooking and the clothes on her back. Sewn into her petticoat are the seeds she has put aside as her dowry. She has been warned she might not be able to find all the foods and flavors she cherishes. She only hopes the man the family priest has arranged for her to marry will appreciate her cooking–and her.

About the Author

I am an Army brat who has traveled extensively both at home (U.S.) and abroad (much of the world but not as much as I’d like!), seeing places, learning history, and, most importantly, meeting people. With all its travails, life is wonderful, God is good, and I am a Pollyanna. My clean, sweet romances, largely historical, western fiction, cross other genres with abandon as they spice and flavor my work. I am most easily reached, under my own name, on Facebook. (Truly, there is only one!) Hope to hear from you!
