ABOUT THIS BOOK

Can a very proper noble lady find a future with a fossil-hunting man of faith?

As the daughter of Viscount Aynsley, Caroline Hatherleigh knows every rule of society—and she’s always followed them precisely. It’s simply the way things are done in her world. When she visits south Devonshire and encounters a fossil-hunting scientist and his sister, her assumptions about what is right are shaken. She is suddenly confronted by questions she has never considered about the importance of friendship and faith—and her comfortable understanding about how the world works is thrown off balance.

Gideon Kirby loves science, and hunting down proof of past lives is a joy he won’t willingly give up. But his scientific leanings are being challenged by both his personal beliefs and by local smugglers in the Devonshire countryside. And every day his sister’s illness is becoming more desperate and her care grows more demanding. Adding a proper Viscount’s daughter to the mix is a complication Gideon never expected—especially since he has a secret that demands he stays far away from this young woman he’s falling for in order to protect his beloved sister.

When a mysterious stranger visits the village, that secret is set to be exposed, no matter how Gideon fights. Then tragedy strikes in a smugglers cave. And the threat of scandal may lead to broken hearts and passionless propriety. Will the shaky bond these two have managed to build be strong enough to overcome their differences—or will the trust they’ve withheld from each other end up tearing three lives apart?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Caroline Hatherleigh knows her way around in the realm of society, after all she a viscounts daughter, and her actions shows that of someone who has been raised around a wealthy atmosphere. She thinks of no one but herself, she’s rude, doesn’t care how she acts. She reminds me of a big annoying brat! Thinking she needs a husband and not liking the guy she’s been hanging around, her mother sends her to south Devonshire, which is the best move her mom could have made! 

Gideon Kirby is a scientist who loves hunting down fossils and trying to figure out the past. But Gideon’s main thing is taking care of his loving sister who has a chronic illness. 

This is such an amazing story! I love the characters, and how each one develops so well as they play out the parts in the story. I love how Gideon takes such special care of his sister, doing whatever he need to do to take care of her. And then when Ms. Hatherleigh comes into the picture, she has such a sweet friendship with Emma. And her reaction to Gideon was awesome! Carolyn Hatherleigh changes from the brat she was to someone very different. I love the way Ms. Miller so expertly makes the changes in Carolyn’s life, and even showing times of her going back to her old self, but she turns out to be a likable person as she continues to change. I feel this is a very well researched and well written story, and I love how this author weaves the Christian life into the lives of her characters. When I finished reading this book, I had a warm feeling for these characters because of the Christian living so evenly written within the pages.  I love, love Carolyn Miller’s books and this one did not disappoint! I highly recommend this sweet Regency read to those loving this genre!

The Sewing Sisters by Ruth Logan Herne

The Sewing Sisters – Three Novella’s

ABOUT THE BOOKS

Hattie McGillicuddy might not look like your typical matchmaker, but Hattie makes things happen in the little town of Second Chance, South Dakota. With the arrival of the railroad and official statehood, Hattie’s determined to bring brides west, and not just any brides. Brides who need the wide open prairie as much as the prairie- and the prairie men- need them! Three pioneer stories of unlikely love are woven around a little town full of homespun characters that take us back to another place and another time but with the same faith, hope and love we cherish today.

Macy can’t sew a lick, and she’s come to town with a sacrifice and a secret, but when Hattie’s first apprentice is attracted to the pastor of the only church in town – the man raising her illegitimate son – will the truth set her free? Or make her leave the town and her son behind?

Unjustly accused, Nellie comes west to escape the law. She has a way with tucks and gathers, and every Western town could use more tucks and gathers. She’s determined to improve the drab look of the prairie and manages to brighten hearts as well. But will her quick speech and firm ideas of women’s suffrage draw Levi Eichas closer or send the somber carriage maker running?

Grief has robbed Ann Hazel, but when her aunt pushes her to go west and help an ailing Hattie McGillicuddy turn hems, Ann’s shamed into it. She’s managed to avoid life for awhile, but when Sol Eichas’s nanny comes down sick, Ann reluctantly agrees to help. As she winds her way around Sol’s heart and home, can the two troubled souls leave the past behind to embrace a future together?

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

I really love these stories of second chance that so rightfully is about people who live in Second Chance, South Dakota. In each of these three Novellas, the young lady who is the main character comes from such a horrible life that she believes there is no hope for her, and especially no hope for a second chance at love. But what each does not realize is that they have Harriet in their side, of course she can’t help but be in the middle of everyone’s business, but it works for their own good. And Harriet is more than happy that she can use each lady in her store, because she keeps so busy sewing clothes for everyone! And, of course, Harriet already has a young man pick out for each of these ladies! 

This is such a fun book to read! Each story is so wonderfully created, with characters that warm your heart in a way that you won’t easily forget them! The little town of Second Chance is sweet and homey, even though everyone does know everyone else’s business. That’s the way it’s suppose to be in small towns right? I felt as though I was right there living the stories! And Ms. Herne creates and describes each scene in such a wonderful way, and in such detail. I love the way she writes each story. And even with Harriet, being the person who makes sure she knows everyone’s business, Ms Herne makes her a character everyone loves! I love the warm homey feeling of these stories! This is a book I will definitely keep, and one I highly recommend! Run out and pick up your copy, or search your favorite online store and read this one for a lot of fun and entertainment!

ABOUT THIS BOOK

Sober businessman Seb Ward may have come from a wealthy lumber-baron family in Minnesota, but he knows that appearances can be deceiving, and that his illustrious family is pretty dysfunctional. Being in another state has provided the buffer he sought from his father’s misdeeds, but when a little boy shows up on a train… a little boy who looks enough like Seb to be his own child… Seb’s faced with a dilemma. Raise the boy as his own, or let his mother suffer the embarrassment of “a brother by another mother.” And when the boy takes a shine to the Rachel Eichas, the newly contracted school teacher, Seb can’t help but do the same. But Rachel was raised by an unloving, business-first father and there’s no way she’s looking for those same qualities in a husband. Can she see through Seb’s focus and drive to find the loving man within?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Seb Ward kept to himself in their little town, that is until his little brother shows up on the train one day, unannounced! How could his dad do this to him? Well, that’s just how his dad it! Read the book to find out more about this sorry excuse for a dad!

Even though not many people knew Seb, when he started showing himself more, he was a likeable fellow. And I love the way he took his little brother,Eli in, loving him and making a special loving home for him.

I love this sweet story that sometimes wasn’t so sweet when Seb’s dad was involved. And I love how Seb, despite his upbringing was determined to make it on his own, being a loyal  citizen of his town and maintain a good reputation. And Eli was just the sweetest five year old, and he misses his own mom so much he immediately takes a liking to husband school teacher Rachel, wanting to spend as much time with her as possible. But of course as in every town, there has to be the gossips that think they know everything and are more than willing to voice their opinions. But that’s what makes a story so good! And that’s why you need to read this story! “The Most Inconvenient Love” by Ruth Logan Herne is a story you don’t want to miss, especially if you love reading a sweet clean romance! I highly recommend this one!

Los Angeles can be a tough place for a single girl, especially for those who come on their own from other cities or small towns, with no family or friends living in the state of California, let alone Los Angeles. Many young girls have stars in their eyes when they land in LA, hoping to make it big in acting, modeling, or music. Unfortunately, a large number of them fade into oblivion without anyone ever even knowing who they are because they lack guidance, assistance, funding, and most importantly, knowledge. Well, if you’re a single girl and you have your sights set on living in the ‘City of the Angels,’ there are a few things you will need to know before you make the move. Whether you come to LA to become a star, or if you simply want to enjoy living in a place with great weather year-round, a beautiful coastline, and some of the best-looking, fittest people in the world, this guide book will help you navigate your way through La-La Land. It will help you avoid some of the pitfalls that many people before you have fallen prey to, and if you play your cards right, before you know it, you will be living a lifestyle which will make your family and friends green with envy.

Read an Excerpt

The Who: In LA, almost everyone has a roommate. With the high cost of living in the city, it makes perfect sense to split the cost with someone else so you can afford to do something other than simply pay rent every month. A good roommate can be an asset, but it’s not always easy to find one. Living with a woman can be challenging, as women can be catty and jealous, and you don’t need that kind of drama in your life. Having a man live with you can be very beneficial. Men are a lot easier to get along with. They’re not hormonal like females, so not too many things bother them, and they generally have good attitudes. They’re also more prone to go out and about, so they will more than likely be gone frequently. If you find one who has a work schedule that is the opposite of yours, or who works all the time, you’ve got it made. Besides, there’s nothing like having a man around to fix things for you and to do some of the things you don’t want to do, such as taking out the trash. With housing being so expensive, having a roommate will give you disposable income, which will allow you to build a little nest egg for a rainy day.

About the Author: Carla Roxanne is a Senior Executive Assistant for one of the top insurance companies in the nation. She has spent many years in administration supporting and organizing some of the highest-ranking executives in Los Angeles. In her spare time, she writes poetry and short stories.

Blessed with the gift of the gab, she has the innate ability to draw people to her through her stories.
