Review: Once Upon a Texas Christmas by Winnie Griggs


May Contain Spoilers

Somehow this is the first book by Winnie Griggs I have read. Not sure how I missed her books in the past, since I have been trying to read the Love Inspired Historicals as they are released every month. All the better for me; this is the tenth and final book in the Texas Grooms series, and now that I’ve discovered it, I will be checking out more of the series from the library.

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.
