About the book:

After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It's a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke--men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew looking for an experienced guide. When his guide appears, Sion balks. He certainly didn't expect a woman. But it is not long before he must admit that Tempe's skill in the wilderness rivals his own. Still, the tenuous tie they are forming is put to the test as they encounter danger after danger and must rely on each other.
With her signature sweeping style and ability to bring the distant past to vivid life, Laura Frantz beckons readers to join her in a land of Indian ambushes, conflicting loyalties, and a tentative love that meanders like a cool mountain stream.

Here is my first line:

Waves of Mercy
by Lynn Austin

Lake Michigan
1897

"I am living my nightmare. A violent storm has overtaken our steamship, and as we mount high on the crest of a wave one moment, then plunge sickeningly into a watery trough the next, I am certain we are about to sink."

Happy reading and Happy New Year!

This week mine is from "Charles Brandon: The King's Man" by Sarah Bryson.

"Charles Brandon was an enigmatic, charismatic man, rising from mere boyhood friend of a future king to flirting with a European duchess, marrying the Dowager Queen of France, being created the Duke of Suffolk, and not to mention becoming the leading magnate in Lincolnshire by the end of his life."

Happy Reading!

My world shattered last winter. A hairline crack formed, and my life perched on the edge of an abyss, set to topple at the slightest breeze. But instead of a breeze, I got a whirlwind...in the form of a positive pregnancy test. Justified by Varina Denman

I'm going to have to move this up in my TBR!

Loved this book!!

One Enchanted Eve by Melissa Tagg

THE FIRST LINE:
If Rylan Jefferson was lucky, after tonight she’d never have to see Colin Renwycke again.

MY THOUGHTS:
Love it. Hands down. Ms. Tagg has become my new favorite author—well, she’s in good company anyway. She had a skill with words that supersedes most I’v read, and she crafts a well-told story.

“Lydia King took a tentative step into Mr. Lowe’s hazy office, feeling like Bob Cratchit approaching Scrooge.” ~ A Heart Most Certain by Melissa Jagears

I loved this book this year. It really makes a person think about grace and forgiveness.

Hi Andrea! Love your name. Haven't read this one.
Happy New Year!

Hi my friend! I have this book but haven't gotten to it.

An Unlikely Love by Dorothy Clark

August 1874 Chautauqua Lake, New York--The steamer lurched, vibrated.

This was a very interesting book as what seemed big problems were finally worked out. I was amazed.

I just finished this book. Trying to decide what to read next.
