Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW
4 out of 5 STARS

I enjoyed reading this sweet clean romance with beautiful ranch scenery. It took me through a life story of loss, challenges, and love.

Reece was a rancher that went through years of hard work to become successful. He showed kindness with everyone he was around. That earned him some points with the ladies. I had to hold back the happy tears when he spent time with his daughter Zoe. Zoe was such a cute little girl in this story. Nan, Asa, Daisy, Mitch, and Willard were side characters that made me smile. I loved the side characters!

Claire’s father had passed away, and she was given some of his property. Her life as Zoe’s mom and a nurse had become normal for her. Her life changed when she told Reece that he was Zoe’s father. Claire went through hard things in life and so had Reece. I enjoyed watching them slowly but surely grow together.

Ready to Trust by Tina Radcliffe was enjoyable to read and go through Reece and Claire’s ups and downs and straight forward moments of life.

I’ve never been on a cruise ship, but I very much want to go! It was fun to feel like I was on a cruise while reading. This story talks about a girl that gets on a cruise that she had saved up her money for a long time. A few months before the cruise Caitlyn and her fiance break up. She was surprised to see him on the ship and married. Caitlyn on the spur-of-the-moment decides to tell a “little” lie that she had lost her memory. Thankfully a sweet guy comes into her life, but he happens to work on the ship.

Greg and Caitlyn both go through ups and downs with work and life. It’s sweet to see them both grow stronger to take care of their lives because of the friendship they build. It’s always fun to see friendships turn into a bit more than just feeling like “friends.”

Second Chance for the Single Dad
By Carol Ross

Paperback & ebook, 368 Pages
March 1st 2020 by Harlequin Heartwarming

She’ll save him a dance…

…if he follows his heart.

Dance teacher Camile Wynn has a new student. Reclusive Rhys McGrath is learning to waltz so he can take his orphaned niece to a father-daughter dance. Camile is surprised by her connection with him, but there’s a generous heart behind Rhys’s awkward exterior. When she learns Rhys could lose custody of his niece, Camile goes behind his back to help him…but will her lies end up hurting him instead?

Excerpt

Two lessons, one dance, Camile reminded herself. Get in, get out, done.

“Good! You got this. Again,” she said.

Rhys repeated the movement.

“Now, this time, don’t stop. Just keep box stepping, and I’ll do it with you.” They performed the movements together with Camile counting and snapping her fingers.

Still moving, she danced around in a half circle until she was facing him, mirroring his steps. “Excellent. And there you have it. Now you’re going to try it with me.”

He stopped in his tracks, brow lines back in full force.

Facing him, Camile patted her left shoulder and instructed, “Right hand here.” He complied, and she ignored how nice the heat of his hand felt as it seeped through the thin fabric of her tank top. “Left arm up.” He obeyed. Silently, she admitted there was something vaguely satisfying about barking orders at him. But this action, the press of his palm against hers, the feel of the work-roughened texture of his skin, her hand enfolded in his, was slightly more difficult to ignore. She told herself it was just the shock of it all, being here with him. Dancing.

“Ah,” he said, tilting his chin toward the floor again. “Now I see why you’re wearing heels.”

“Is that your way of insulting my height?” she joked, breaking her own rule before she could stop herself.

He brought his gaze back up and locked it on to hers, and Camile was a little taken aback by the intensity she saw there. “No. Absolutely not. Why would that be insulting? I’m sorry if you took it that way.”

“Um, it’s—it’s fine,” she stammered. “I was joking. I know I’m short. It would be difficult to forget as the only short person in a family of very tall people. You know, recessive genes or whatever.”

“That would not be the case,” he said. “Height is polygenic. And there are other variables. It’s more quantitative than that. So the term recessive doesn’t apply when it comes to height.”

Camile squinted up at him, trying to decide if he was serious. When he didn’t blink, she said, “I know. At least three genes are involved and like six alleles, right?” Genetics had been one of her favorite premed courses. “Plus, there are nutritional and environmental factors. I wasn’t being literal. I was exaggerating for effect. Making fun of the fact that I drew the short straw in my family.” She added a wink.

Gaze narrowed in on her, he shook his head a couple of times very slowly as if thinking carefully about how to respond.

Embarrassed by her lame joke, she clarified, “That was a bad pun. Sorry.”

When he spoke, his eyes traveled over her while his mouth hinted at a smile. “No, you’re wrong. It was not a bad pun. It was a very good pun. But there’s nothing inferior about your genetic fate. Quite the contrary. Height is also a very subjective preference as far as attractiveness goes. Studies have shown that shorter women with discernible curves are the most symmetrically pleasing. I happen to agree with the consensus.”

Camile stared into his earnest blue eyes and felt her lips part. What the…? Her neck went hot as she tried to wrap her brain around this moment. Obviously, the man was brilliant in a way that resulted in a unique perspective. But the part that had her speechless was the fact that he’d just given her a really lovely compliment. Like, spellbindingly good. And he seemed sincere. Granted, the delivery wasn’t the smoothest, but the meaning was there. It also caught her off guard and made her feel warm in even more surprising ways. Ways she shouldn’t feel. Not with Rhys McGrath, date absconder, social snob and possibly worse, if any of the rumors were true.

Always the One was another great book by Tara Randel. I mostly listen to audio books these days so when I actually read a book it has to be able to keep my attention. This book kept me happily wanting to read more.

Derrick and Hannah were the main characters and both told the story. They had fallen in love when they were growing up and were separated just before they eloped as teenagers. The main story took place 17 years after Hannah had been taken with her parents into hiding. Derrick was in the FBI and finally found Hannah after all those years, but she wasn’t happy to be found. Derrick discovered that she was in a serious relationship with another man.

Throughout the story I continued to feel terrible for Hannah and what she had gone through and how her life had to change drastically. It was also hard to see Derrick go through the emotionally pain of trying to get her back in his life. Along with the sweet romance there was a little bit of mystery which I enjoyed.

Always the One by Tara Randel was a clean contemporary adult romance full of the ups and downs of love. If you enjoy books full of past love pushing its way back to the present then you will adore this read.

(The Lost Princesses #0.5)

By Jody Hedlund

Christian YA Historical Romance

Paperback & ebook, 136 Pages

August 13th 2019 by Northern Lights Press

A fierce elite guard. A loyal lady in waiting. They must work together to save three princesses from certain death.

On the verge of dying after giving birth to twins, the queen of Mercia pleads with Lady Felicia to save her infant daughters. With the castle overrun by King Ethelwulf’s invading army, Lady Felicia vows to do whatever she can to take the newborn princesses and their three-year old sister to safety, even though it means sacrificing everything she holds dear, possibly her own life.

Gravely wounded in battle and knowing all is lost to his enemy, the king of Mercia tasks Lance, one of his fiercest elite guards, to protect his family along with keys to an ancient treasure. As Lance makes plans to sneak the princesses out of the capital city, he doesn’t need or want Lady Felicia’s help.

With the dark enemy in pursuit, Lance and Felicia must put aside their differences to outrun King Ethelwulf and prevent him from killing the princesses. In a desperate attempt to hide the young girls, Lance and Felicia agree to a marriage of convenience, a decision that will change their lives—and hearts—forever.

I LOVED this book! I was taken to another world full of danger and watched the main characters’ become stronger physically and emotionally.

Felicia and Lance had never met until they are pushed together. When the Queen was dying from giving birth to her twins she asked Felicia to take her baby daughters to safety. Felicia can’t believe that the Queen has chosen her for such a responsibility. Lance is asked by the dying King to protect his daughters as well.

Lance and Felicia learn about their own personal weaknesses as they try to work together. They go through heartbreaking events. The trials they go through bring them to prayer and give them strength.

Always by Jody Hedlund was an incredible adventure and romance. It was a fast passed novella that begins The Lost Princesses trilogy. Always left me wanting to read all of this Heart-filled Christian Teen Romance series!

An ancient key. A secret treasure. And a princess destined to use them both to fight evil and restore peace.

Raised by a noble family, Lady Adelaide has always known she’s an orphan. Little does she realize she’s one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne…until a visitor arrives at her family estate, reveals her birthright as queen, and thrusts her into a quest for the throne whether she’s ready or not.

Unable to tolerate King Ethelwulf’s cruelty and lawlessness, Christopher Langley left Mercia years earlier, training a group of rebels in neighboring Norland. When he returns home after his mother’s death, he discovers that not only is Adelaide all grown up, but she’s also the rightful queen of Mercia.

When King Ethelwulf discovers Adelaide’s location, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and the key she holds to the ancient treasure. Christopher is just as determined to protect Adelaide so she can lead the growing rebellion. When feelings ignite between the two old friends, forces threaten to destroy their love and rip them apart forever.

Incredible! I loved this teen historical fiction with romance and adventure! I went straight from reading the novella to this first book in the trilogy.

Adelaide grew up with a family that took her in after her parents died. She knew they weren’t related, but they had told people around them that she was their niece. She grew up with 3 boy “cousins.” I loved how Adelaide had had a crush on her older “cousin” Christopher. She knew they weren’t related so she let herself dream of marrying him. Christopher had always thought of Adelaide as his little friend until he saw how she’d grown up to be a strong and beautiful woman.

It had been way to long since I’d read a teen fiction with adventures! Evermore by Jody Hedlund took me away into a historical fiction where the characters went through trials and felt strengthened through prayer. I loved this YA Christian Fiction! I plan to read the next two books as soon as they are released!

When a struggling bakery owner is rescued by a wannabe songwriter with hidden culinary talents, they discover they can make sweet harmony … if they can only learn to work together.

EXCERPT

Mr. Perfect could be real trouble.
Not that he wasn’t qualified. He was more than qualified. He made the best vanilla latte she’d had in months, possibly ever. And he was telling the truth about his past—a simple Google
search confirmed his story.
But serious amounts of time around that smile, those caramel eyes and the way his voice spilled out so effortlessly, doing crazy things to her insides … yeah, good thing it was a part-time temporary gig. She needed her full attention—
“How hot is he?”
Catherine’s question sent a tell-tale heat creeping up Lindsay’s neck. What, Cat could read her mind? She dunked the mixing bowl into the hot soapy water and danced around the
inquiry. “Who?”
“Oh, please. You can’t fool me.” Catherine deposited the rest of the dirty dishes on the counter next to the sink. “I walked by yesterday and peeked in the window. There you were, sipping coffee and sharing a macaron with Mr. All-American boy-next-door. Now you conveniently want to hire him.”
“He’s completely qualified. Lots of previous work experience.” Plus, a captivating smile and more than one intriguing tattoo inked on his muscular arms. Her skin flushed warmer and she dipped her chin, hoping Catherine wouldn’t notice.
No such luck.
“Are you blushing?” Cat leaned closer. “My word, you are.”
“Stop.” Lindsay rinsed the soap from the bowl then set it in the drying rack. Why did she have to be so transparent?
“So he’s not good-looking?”
“That’s not what I said.”
“Looked hot to me.”
Lindsay sucked in a breath. That was all Cat needed.
“Ha.” Catherine did a victory dance. “I knew it. You do like him.”
“I do not.” Lindsay grabbed a towel and dried her hands. Ugh. They had reverted into their seventh-grade selves—baking yet another concoction while discussing their secret crushes. Or not so secret crushes. Catherine had radar for that sort of thing. Wait until she told her he’d offered to go with her to check out that dilapidated truck. She’d flip.
“Have you checked his references?” Catherine wiped the remnants of their cookie baking session from the counter. “Made sure he’s legit?”
“Not yet.”
“Aren’t you the least bit curious about where he came from or why he’s here?”
Curious didn’t begin to describe it. More like nosy. She’d followed all sorts of rabbit trails last night in her quest to learn more about Rhett. His social media was filled with posts
about Nashville, confirming his story. He was clearly into the music scene. Other than that, she’d come up with zero new details.
“He’s from Oregon originally. Spent a lot of time in Nashville.” Lindsay tossed the crumpled paper towel in the trash can. There was no reason not to trust him. If yesterday was any
indication of his talents, he knew a thing or two about making great coffee. He’d totally whipped Hans into shape, too. So what if he didn’t reveal much about his personal life. Wasn’t that the mark of a professional?

stars4

A Family for Jason is full of real life. Every one of us goes through trials throughout our lives. This book cuts deep and is real.

Ruby and Mike are in their late 30s and find themselves pushed back to Bluestone River, their home town. The story goes into the past with Ruby and Mike’s life as teenagers falling in love. Their memories of each other are so precious. But terrible things had happened which emotionally scarred both of them away from their home and each other. I love how they get to be surprised toward the beginning of the book when they see each other for the first time in twenty years!

Ruby has returned to help Emma, her best friend from her Bluestone River days. Emma needs Ruby’s help, and Ruby feels the need to escape from where she currently lives. Ruby expects to leave as soon as possible from the hometown that brings back hard memories. Mike has a sweet little 6 year old boy, Jason, whom he barely knows. Jason has gone through a life changing fire and saw his mother die. He will not talk because of the trauma. Like I said these characters are going through real life heartaches.

All of the Harlequin Heartwarming contemporary romance novels go up and down with joy and sadness. A Family for Jason by Virginia McCullough fulfilled my expectations of realistic life difficulties and fast heart beating romance.

Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW

4 out of 5 STARS

I had a smile on my face from the very beginning of reading Trusting Her Heart by Tara Randel. I liked the main characters as well as the fun side characters. I look forward to reading the books before and after in this Meet Me at the Altar series.

Golden sounds like a beautiful little town where Serena had begun to settle in and which happens to be where Logan grew up. Serena was thoughtful of others and full of kindness. Logan felt the peace of his hometown but also felt like he couldn’t stay for other reasons.

Logan’s Grandma was so fun, and brought a smile and laugh to the story. She was strong and didn’t give up on  what she wanted in life. There were many great side characters. I hope there will be future stories with Serena and Logan’s friends.

If you enjoy Heartwarming Romance with family, friendships, and some good laughs then read this book. Some of life’s trials feel unbreakable. Some hard times have to be pushed through. Trusting Her Heart by Tara Randel is a wonderful read full of the ups and downs of life.

Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW

4 out of 5 STARS

Single Dad to the Rescue is a sweet clean romance read! It’s the 4th in a series, but you don’t have to read the first 3 books. Those book characters do enter this story which makes me want to go back and read their sweet romance.

A wildfire makes Brooke and her animal family leave their home. With her pets she can’t find a place for shelter. Thankfully she’s blessed to find a kind older man named Rick who brings her to his son Dan’s guesthouse. Throughout the story you get to see Brooke’s way of talking through problems with others. She connects with animals that have been through difficult times because of what she went through when her husband died. Dan is an organized single dad of a child with type 1 diabetes. He went through heartbreak when his wife left him and his son at a young age.

There are a lot of characters in this story! Because I’ve gone through brain cancer I struggle remembering names so I kept a paper and pen nearby. The characters are all great additions to the story. Dan’s dad and son are sweet to everyone. The dogs and cats are cute and loving. Valerie, Dan’s ex-wife, brings frustrations and more. Dan’s little brother Jason is a great addition to the emotions of this story.

Brooke and Dan are both scared to get emotionally connected because of the hard things life has put them through. I felt heartwarming feelings build up throughout this read. Single Dad to the Rescue by Cari Lynn Webb is a romance with life building experiences which we can all relate to in different ways.
