Review: "My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge: Laurel's Dream" by Pepper Basham

I have really enjoyed several of Pepper Basham's contemporary romances, and I've heard good things about her historicals, but I hadn't read any until I received My Heart Belongs in the Blue Ridge as part of a blind tour with JustRead Tours. This made for a perfect "blind date with a book"!

Let me start this out Hank Lapp syle: IT'S FINALLY JIMMY FISHER'S TURN!!!

Jimmy Fisher has long been a recurring character in Suzanne Woods Fisher's novels set in the Stoney Ridge Amish community, and I'm so glad it's finally his turn to grow up and find love.

Review: "The Land Beneath Us" by Sarah Sundin

Wow, did I have a great reading weekend or what?!? On Friday, I finished up Jessica Kate's romantic comedy A Girl's Guide to the Outback (see my review here), and then I spent hours on Saturday and Sunday reading The Land Beneath Us. Both books were wonderful!

Review: "End Game" by Rachel Dylan

Do you enjoy reading books set in cities you've visited? I do, especially when the author mentions places/landmarks I've been to myself. I spent a week in Washington, D.C., the setting of End Game, last spring, and I loved finding places I recognized in the book!

Read with Us 2020: A Book Recommended by Someone You Trust

Hello, friends! Four years ago, my sisters and I (and sometimes our mom and brother) attempted the Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge. (For some reason that I can't remember, I made all of our posts on my personal—and now basically defunct—blog. But you can see those posts here.) We decided to try again this year ... hopefully we'll be more successful than we were the last time around!
