Recent Books I've Read
I want to give you a list of the recent books I have read. They are all great books and I think you would enjoy any of them. I will give the title and then read what is written on the back to give you a little insight into what the book is about.
"The Blue Enchantress" by M. L. Tyndall
Still grieving the loss of her mother -- and private tragedies of her own -- Hope Westcott plays the part of a dutiful admirals daughter. But longing for the love and acceptance she never felt at home,
hope plunges into Charles Towne society -- and an illicit affair with Lord Falkland.
For Capt. Nathaniel Mason, wealth means security, so he is determined to build his shipping business-- ignoring God's call on his life to become an impoverished Pastor. He also ignores his attraction to the frivolous, vain and Hope Westcott.
Hope's adventure seeking lands her in the hands of an unscrupulous ship captain who wants to sell her to the highest bidder. When Nathaniel sees Hope on the auction block, will he listen to God and sacrifice his ship, cargo, and security to save her?
From the Carolina coast to the Caribbean, through stormy seas and shipwreck, can Hope and Nathaniel put aside their painful pasts, listen to God's voice, and find true love and acceptance?
"Waiting for Daybreak" by Kathryn Cushman
Paige Woodward is out of options -- so when a dream opportunity arises at a brand new pharmacy, Paige chooses to keep quiet about her past to ensure she'll land the job. After all, she needs the money to pay for the treatment that can save her mother's life.
Clarissa Richardson feels alone. She wants desperately to honor the memory of her grandmother are running a successful pharmacy -- but that vision comes to a screeching halt when her grandfather hires Paige, the too perfect new girl who seems to be hiding something.
"Fools Rush In" by Janice Thompson
Bella Rossi's life is just starting to get interesting. When her Italian turned Texan parents and over the family wedding planning business, Bella quickly books a Boot-Scootin' wedding that would make any Texan proud. There's only one catch -- she doesn't know a thing about country music. Where will she find a deejay on such short notice who knows his Alan Jackson from his George Strait? And will Bella ever get to plan her wedding?
Fun, fresh, and full of surprises, this flavorful combination of Italian and Tex-Mex highlights the hilarity that ensues when cultures clash.
I enjoyed all of these books thoroughly and you cannot go wrong with any of them. As always I wish you HAPPY READING!
