Review: A Child’s Christmas Wish by Erica Vetsch




May Contain Spoilers

I am so glad that I discovered Erica Vetsch. This is the second Love Inspired Historical I’ve read by her, and I really enjoyed it. At first I wasn’t so caught up in the plot – yet another fire disaster leaves heroine Kate and her elderly relatives in a financial bind, and neighbor Oscar reluctantly offers to put them up at his house until they can figure out what to do. It seems that every western I have read recently in this line has had a fire burn down a house or a barn.

Review: Frontier Want Ad Bride by Lyn Cote


May Contain Spoilers

Since we will soon see the end of Harlequin’s Love Inspired Historical line, I have been reading them as the library acquires them. There is always a waitlist for them, so I don’t understand why Harlequin is pulling the plug on the line, but it is what it is. I happened to be browsing the catalog when Frontier Want Ad Bride was added, so I was the first to check it out. Read more

Review: The Marshal’s Mission by Anna Zogg

May Contain Spoilers

Whelp, since the Harlequin Love Inspired Historical line is on the chopping block, I have been trying to read as many of them as I can.  I love the cover for The Marshal’s Mission, so this was bumped up on the TBR pile.  I love the time period and the Western setting, so it was no brainer that I would read this.

Lenora is a widow, trying to raise her young son, Toby, and work her ranch.  Her late husband was a gambler, a cheat, and an outlaw. She found him one night, dying of gun shot wounds, a bag of stolen money in his hands.  After burying the money, and her late husband, Lenora is determined to do what’s best for Toby and herself.

Review: Family of Convenience by Victoria W. Austin

 

May Contain Spoilers

I really, really enjoyed this book.  Millie, homeless and pregnant, agrees to a marriage of convenience with Adam, a widower with two young children.  Both Adam and Millie had unpleasant first marriages, so Adam stresses that theirs will be only a marriage for the sake of the children, both his and Millie’s unborn baby.  Adam had already had his heart ripped to shreds, and he doesn’t want to go through that again.  Millie has never had an easy life, and she is terrified of being penniless and homeless, and so for her baby’s sake, she agrees to Adam’s proposal.
