 A Bride’s Dilemma in Friendship, Tennessee by Diana Brandmeyer

Heaven’s Stolen His Heart

 After witnessing the ravages of the Civil War, Travis Logan vowed to give up doctoring. But when fellow steamboat passenger Caleb Wharton collapses at his feet, Travis knows he must lend his aid. As the old man lies dying, he makes Travis promise to take care of his land and find Heaven. Travis can’t help but wonder what Heaven has to do with a real place, so he heads to Caleb’s farm to fulfill his promise.

Weeks of facing marauders and caring for her father’s home have finally taken their toll on Heaven Wharton. When an unknown young man charges the house, Heaven attempts to fire a warning shot but ends up shooting the man instead. Shocked, she and her sister, Angel, drag a semi-conscious Travis into the house and nurse him back to health.

 As Travis and Heaven both struggle to control their destinies, will they learn that only a heart that follows God can ever find peace on earth?

6a00d83451f1cb69e2014e8668390a970d-200wi Finally a Bride by Vickie McDonough 

Finally it’s here! Jack’s story is a hoot. McDonough let her grow up but she kept her rascally personality intact.

Even jailbird Carly is back—her story though small was important to me from the other books and I’m glad to know what happens with her.

Butch, Jack’s nemesis turns up in an unexpected way as well.

This is the last book in the Boarding House Brides series (you don’t need the others first but you’ll be missing some good reading if you don’t get them!) and it’s sad to let the characters go.

McDonough pulls the personas of her characters through every book and page, you never wonder why did that character do that? It’s not like her or him.

The writing is fun, creative and entertaining.
