Spotlight and Cover Reveal for Tanya Eavenson’s Book The Rescue!

About the Book

Upon the death of her mother, Rosalind Standford’s life shatters. She is forced into a betrothal to a cunning banker close to her father’s age.

Cowboy Trent Easton, Rosalind’s childhood friend, returns to his roots in Boston society to find her engaged to another. Though she once rejected him, when Trent learns she’s in danger, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even taking her to the altar in the black of night. But will his name and the remote wilds of his Texas ranch be enough to protect her? Or will freedom cost them their lives?

THE RESCUE, the first book in Tanya Eavenson’s brand new series, All Roads Lead to Texas, is set to release this September! I can’t wait to read it!!

P.S.  Isn’t the cover gorgeous?

Worrisome Wednesday (at least for me!)

Books

Recently, over the course of a few months, a spate of historical fiction books arrived in my box. I love historical and Biblical fiction. I enjoy history, and books like these bring the time period alive for me. However, because of my PTSD, I am unable to review them, which greatly saddens me. They are all written by great authors, and some are even sequels, which makes the situation doubly sad.

Authors, please know, I love your books and so enjoy reading and reviewing them. Sometimes, I just can’t. Please accept my apologies and know I pass the books on to other enthusiastic readers.

Delilah “Buzz”

Fay Lamb’s book, Delilah, deals with many daunting issues. Some almost everyone faces, some others have faced, some people are still dealing with-issues like child abuse, alcoholism, homelessness and abandonment. However, you aren’t left with despair because the story models forgiveness, kindness, charity and Christ-like love.

Today, I chose to mention homelessness. One portion of Delilah’s story highlights the plight of the homeless. Over the winter, I had an experience with someone homeless. We don’t have many homeless in our town. A combination, I believe, because of its size and lack of anywhere for these poor souls to go. Though my story, https://captivedreamswindow.wordpress.com/2018/12/04/strange-and-unusual-encounter/, doesn’t have the ending Delilah does and focuses on a slightly different aspect, the plight of homelessness is poignant and vital for us to consider.

Read Delilah; you’ll be so glad you did!!

“Buzz” About Delilah by Fay Lamb

Every now and then I read a book that really touches me deep inside. To say that Fay Lamb’s books touch me on the deepest level possible would be an undervaluation of the impact of her books.

Delilah, in addition to other books Fay has written, left an indelible print (no pun intended!) on me. Because of its influence, I decided to do “Buzz” About Delilah every few days through the remainder of April. Today is the first one.

Delilah

She’s definitely changed. I don’t know why or how. She’s still self-confident. She’s bright. Maybe a little too brash at times, but I’ve seen her tone it down a notch or two.” Who’d have thought he’d be defending Delilah James?

First Line Fridays-On Magnolia Lane by Denise Hunter Hosted by Hoarding Books!!

Publisher’s Summary

Falling in love with Daisy was easy for Jack. But finding the courage to tell her becomes problematic when his secret feelings lead to even bigger complications.

After two years of counseling sessions with Daisy Pendleton, Pastor Jack McReady has earned a permanent spot in her life as a spiritual leader—and nothing more. Jack would never risk losing her trust by exposing the depths of his heart, but he’s hopelessly in love with her.

Daisy loves her southern small-town life and her job at her family-run flower shop, but she doesn’t have the thing she longs for most: someone to share it with. Her recent foray into online dating has been a disaster—until she meets TJ.

Jack could kill his friend Noah for using his initials and some indistinct photos to set up a profile on the dating app Daisy is using. But when he’s finally afforded the opportunity to show her a different side of himself, he’s sucked into the plan before he has time for second thoughts.

Online, Daisy shares some of her greatest fears with TJ, but in person, Jack and Daisy are spending more time together. When a devastating family secret surfaces, Daisy knows that only her trusted friend and counselor can bring her comfort. Jack wants nothing more than to be both men for Daisy, but revealing his secret will prove to be the ultimate test of Daisy’s grace.

Welcome to First Line Friday Hosted by Hoarding Books!!

 

First Line (Plus, two!)

I had no problem finding Jennalyn’s house that windy night in early December. The two-story charmer stood out from the other Costa Mesa ranch-style houses on Ventura Street. I even made it as far as the welcome mat by her front door before a rising sense of panic pressed in on me, causing me to stop and draw in a deep breath.

Publisher’s Summary

Five young women, including beloved Gunn characters Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen, gather for a simple Christmas party and soon become unlikely best friends. Told from the viewpoint of Emily, a timid young mom going through a difficult season of life, the regular gatherings provide the much-needed community she’s longed for. As the women begin sharing their life stories in Becoming Us they are endeared to each other and find ways to challenge, encourage, and help each other become the nurturing mothers they wished they’d had when they were growing up. They see themselves as Haven Makers and unite to be remembered for what they do and not for what was done to them.

My Comments

The Greatest Journey Ever Begins

Luke 2: 1-5 King James Version (KJV)

1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
