Kathryn Cooper Writes’ Review

4 out of 5 STARS

I love Thanksgiving. I get to relax with family and eat delicious food. Win win! Montana Match is a Thanksgiving book! So fun. I enjoyed this read, but I think I would have liked it more if I had already read the series books before this one.

Fiona and Simon are the main characters with problems in life. Fiona is trying to get to know a large family that is new to her. She has made a high standard of what she should be doing in her life. She thinks she needs to have a job that pays better and just different from the one she has enjoyed for so long. Because of some family advice she feels like she must find the perfect guy. Her definition for perfect doesn’t turn out to be right for her.

Simon has gone through hard times with his family. He has to look back on his life and figure out if he is moving forward. He has to decide if he needs to change his relationship with his little brother. Simon is really fun and makes me laugh. Fiona and Simon have some really sweet moments as they try to keep from feeling serious about each other and fail big time .

Overall Montana Match by Carol Ross is a sweet adult romance that brings you through real life scenarios. If you enjoy Harlequin’s Heartwarming reads then go find this Thanksgiving romance story which will bring a smile to your face.

Sweet Melody 4 out of 5 STARS Review

Sweet Melody by Heidi McCahan. 2019.

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.

Rhett Foster longs to change the world with his music, yet he can’t even finish writing one song. Battered by a string of failures and disillusioned, he returns home to Portland, Oregon. While he desperately wants to create a chart-topping hit, his dad mandates a new mission: move to coastal vacation hotspot Seabrook, Washington and expand the family’s successful restaurant chain.
In danger of destroying her late parents’ legacy if she doesn’t diversify her menu, Lindsay Carmichael will try anything to save her bakery. But with a tiny budget and an injured employee who can’t work, she has no choice but to sink the last of her savings into buying a dilapidated food truck and hiring Rhett as a part-time barista. What she doesn’t know is that the handsome songwriter has a secret … one that could destroy her business and her heart.

Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW
4 out of 5 STARS

Sweet Melody took me on an up and down ride of life. There were moments of excitement and accomplishment and times of worry and sadness. I enjoyed this read a lot.

Lindsay was a baker of deliciousness. It was hard to read because currently I’m trying to NOT eat a lot of sweets. My mouth watered a little when she talked about her cupcakes. I felt so proud for Lindsay as she continued to push for her little business. That would be so hard to keep a small business going. Plus dealing with the stress of taking care of employees.

She was lucky to find an employ named Rhett. Rhett had some secrets about his family, but he was a great barista. Rhett and Lindsay felt a lot of sparks building up between them. It was so cute to read about them trying to NOT feel attracted to each other. Watching their relationship build and go up and down was exciting.

I really enjoyed reading Sweet Melody by Melody McCahan. It was full of real life good and hard times. The building up of their relationship was entertaining! I recommend this read to anyone that likes to read clean delightful romance.

An Alaskan Family Christmas
(Northern Lights #7)
By Beth Carpenter
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 384 Pages (Large Print)
November 1, 2020 by Harlequin Heartwarming

A little mix-up…

Could make her Christmas wonderful!

Natalie Weiss is mortified. After mistaking handsome Tanner Rockford for his cousin, she’s followed him to rural Alaska. Now she’s stranded—until Tanner invites her to spend Christmas with his family in their rustic, cozy cabin. But in this idyllic winter wonderland, Natalie discovers the family she’s never had…and the love she never knew she needed. But what happens when they all discover why she’s really there?

EXCERPT! SNEAK PEEK!

Tanner’s voice held out little hope, but he led her toward the blue cabin. The inexpertly painted sign over the door read “Red’s Stuff.” Tanner held the door open so Natalie could enter first. Rough shelves held boxes, cans, winter hats, mosquito repellent and several other items Natalie couldn’t immediately identify.
A voice called out from the shadows in the rear of the room, “Who’s there?”
“It’s just me, Tanner Rockford.”
“Oh, hey, Tanner. Your family already stopped by on their way to the cabin, and your uncle left the utility sled out back for you. Those girls are sure excited about Santy Claus.”
Girls? Natalie’s jaw began to ache under the strain of holding her tongue while pretending she didn’t know anything about Rockford. Married, just as she had suspected. Worse, he had kids. Brooke would be devastated. But at least Natalie knew his real name.
“Yeah, the girls are excited all right. Say, Red, this lady got off the train by mistake, and she
needs a place to stay. Do you know of any rentals?”
A gnome appeared, peeking around a stack of boxes. The top of his head shined even in the
gloom, and if the remaining hair had ever been red, the color had long ago faded. Natalie didn’t like the speculative gleam in his eye. “Well, now. This time of year, most part-time cabins are locked up tight.
Time was, folks would leave them open in case someone needed a place to stay, but nowadays…” He shook his head sadly. “I suppose, if you’re in a bind, I have a place out back—”
“Are you talking about your woodshed?” Tanner asked.
“Well, yeah, but there’s room for a cot.”
“There’s no stove, is there?”
“I’d throw in a good sleeping bag—” the old man gave a sly smile “—for a fair price.”
“Never mind,” Tanner told him. “She’ll be staying with us.”
Us? Like Tanner and his wife and kids? That would be beyond awkward, especially if he figured out she was connected with Brooke.
“Wait. I never said—”
“It’s that or camp out in Red’s woodshed. Our place has heat and beds. Your choice.”
Well, when he put it like that, Natalie supposed she’d survive awkward.

The Cowboy’s Holiday Bride (Wishing Well Springs #1) By Cathy McDavid Contemporary Romance Paperback & ebook, 384 Pages November 1, 2020 by Harlequin Heartwarming

Changing his heart…

Would be a Christmas miracle!

Cash Montgomery creates Western-themed weddings and knows all about happily-ever-after. In theory. He’s been hurt too many times to think that he could ever be a marrying man. His business partner Phoebe Kellerman doesn’t agree with him—on anything! At Christmas, Cash is visited by three of his past girlfriends…and he begins to see the error of his ways. Will it be before he loses Phoebe, the woman he’s falling for?

EXCERPT SNEAK PEAK!
“What does that mean?” Phoebe was less adept than her sister at interpreting tones and inflections.
“Just that… Well, come on. You. And Cash. Together…”
“So what?” Don’t say it. Please.
“You…like him—”
“I do not,” Phoebe insisted with enough vehemence that Georgia Ann sent her a curious look.
“You always have.” Trudy was either mixing batter or running a blender, for a whirring sound filled the background. “Since you were kids.”
“I had a crush on him for maybe two months in high school.”
“Oh puhleeze.”
“I’m not going to dignify that with a response.” Neither was she giving herself away to her astute sister.
Phoebe had harbored a crush on Cash for a lot longer than two months or even two years. But he’d barely noticed his younger sister’s best friend except to demand she make herself scarce. She’d hung on arena fences, gawking, when he’d competed in junior rodeo, and bought tickets to see him compete professionally during his college days. She’d visited him in the hospital when he blew out his shoulder bulldogging at the National Finals Rodeo, attended his graduation from Arizona State University, had lunch with him during her periodic excursions to Phoenix, followed his career at Strategic Design and kept up with the latest happenings in his life from his sister.
She’d secretly cried when, during his junior year at ASU, he’d gotten engaged for the first time. She’d emerged from the despair brought on by his second engagement vowing enough was enough and eagerly pursued the first man to glance twice in her direction—a mistake that had ultimately wasted the best part of her twenties and left her with nothing to show for it except a refusal to repeat past mistakes.
At least one big positive came out of it—she’d been too immersed in her own failed love life to feel much when she’d heard about Cash’s third engagement. Not long after that fiancée bailed, he and his sister converted the ramshackle house and falling-down barn they’d inherited into the present day Wishing Well Springs, bringing Phoebe in as a partner.
The irony didn’t escape her. One of the most popular wedding venues in Arizona was
run by three people with a history of broken engagements and failed relationships. Go figure.

Kathryn Cooper Writes’ REVIEW
4 out of 5 STARS

A Ranger for the Twins by Tanya Agler is a story about the past blending into the present. Lucie and Caleb had been best friends in high school and had gone through a difficult medical problem that Caleb went through. For some reason they went their separate ways after graduating high school. Lucie gets married and is blessed with twins. Her son and daughter mean everything to her. Lucie’s husband commits fraud and is sent to prison. They get divorced because Lucie realizes that they didn’t love each other.

At the beginning of the book is has been a year or 2 since Lucie and her past husband were divorced, but the people in her community still give her a hard time. Many people lost money through her ex-husband and believe she had been a part of it. I can’t even imagine the emotional pain that would cause. Lucie shows strength to stay strong and close to her real friends.

I just returned home from visiting Yellowstone National Park so it was fun to hear the character Caleb occasionally talk about his past job at Yellowstone. Caleb decided to move back to his old town where his cousin lives. He had left behind a legend of being a hero that many people all over the US found out about. He also finds physical struggles that makes me feel the pain for him. I love how Caleb goes from crushing on Lucie in high school to becoming a man who is completely in love with her. I love all the scenes with Lucie and Caleb going back and forth on trying to understand their feelings of attraction.

If you enjoy contemporary clean romance with a twist of a past and a present relationship, then you’ll love A Ranger for the Twins by Tanya Agler.

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.

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!

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?

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.
