This was a fun book to write. Lori and Lucy were in the other A Time for Love books and they needed to tell their stories. In a Time to Heal they got their chance.
It’s been a great month for reading. Lots of rainy days and nights is a good reason to hang out in a chair with my Kindle. Except for nights when the hockey playoffs are on and then my attention goes to our local team. The St. Louis Blues. I’m not a big sports fan except for hockey. For some reason I like it. I think it’s because I’m amazed at the agility of the players. I can not stand up on ice at all.
I’ve jumped into KindleUnlimited with gusto and have had fun tracking down good books to read.
A series I started and can’t stop reading is by Valerie Comer. The Montana Ranches Christian Romances
There is something about modern day cowboys that captures my attention.
Start with the first one The Cowboy’s Christmas Reunion and see what you think.
From Book 1: A jilted cowboy gets a second chance at love when his ex-fiancée returns with her small daughter.
From Book 2: Friends become more in this romance with a matchmaker bent on finding dates for the cowboy she believes doesn’t return her love.
From Book 3: Opposites attract in this romance with a grumpy cowboy burned by love and a bubbly romance editor with (almost) all the answers!
What are you reading this month?
It’s been a busy month for me. I read one book that I fell in love with.
A Moonbow night by Laura Franz. It’s a bit pricey but if you have kindle unlimited you can read it for free.
On the vast, uncharted Kentucky frontier of the 1770s, Temperance Tucker has learned to be fleet of foot, accurate with her rifle, and silent about the past. But her family secrets complicate her growing attraction to a handsome Virginia land surveyor with a harsh history of his own. Will the hurts and hardships of the past prevent them from a fulfilling future?
When I drive around this country it’s hard to imagine what it looked like in 1770. Thanks to my GPS on my phone I never get lost. Temperance Tucker has her own GPS–her eyes and her memory.
Following her story deep into the woods of Kentucky and a hair-raising event inside of a cave kept me reading many nights after my bedtime.
It’s not your normal romance where they couple meet and fall in love and marry. It’s much more complicated and the setting takes on a life as a character.
If you want a book that’s not so fast paced allowing you to live in the books world for a time, this book is for you.
It’s spring weather sort of…rainy, gloomy and partly sunny.
The idea of piling all my clothes on the bed and donating the ones that don’t bring me joy sounds like a bad idea. I’m tired of wearing my winter clothes and it’s not warm enough to switch over for the next season. If I followed Marie Kondo’s advice next winter, I’d have to shop for an entire new wardrobe. Sounds like fun.
My bank account has been following the minimalist life style too long for me to purchase much of anything new.
Then there are the books. So many books in my house and I’ve donated a lot of those already. I’m going to say the ones that remain all bring me joy or like the ones my laptop sits on earn their keep.
Collections to pair down? I had to think about that one. I don’t seem to have those either unless you count the millions of files and photos on computer. I suppose I could take the next ten years and tidy those up. Nah. Can’t see those so they can’t possible count as clutter, right?
There is one room in my house that could use some tidying.
The sewing room.
Shudder. That room is a scary mess. So many things were piled in there when my son and his wife and my grandkids moved in while their house was being built. Sure they took their stuff out but the room is ‘out of sorts’ in a major way.
This is where following these plans becomes tricky. It seems to be the area that I’m not ready to let go of that causes me and maybe others to hold back from letting go.
That room will take a long time to go through and I’ll have to evaluate if I want to keep sewing. I think I do but honestly, I haven’t sewn anything in five years. But I want too, I think. I don’t have time until summer to tackle this issue, but it is weighing on me. And that’s when the tidying up and minimalist people say it’s time to get to work and find out what’s important enough to stay.
I’m giving going to set a deadline for next September to have that room back together or packed to donate. Pray for me!
What about you? Have you hopped on this crazy train of living like a minimalist?
I’m giving going to set a deadline

Since spring hasn’t decided to show up yet this month I’ve been reading.
I have a KindleUnlimited subscription (you can get one here) and I’ve been exploring new to me authors.
The Homesteader’s Sweetheart by Lacy Williams won me over fast. I do love a good marriage of convenience story.
They come from different worlds. Can a wealthy debutante belong with a simple homesteader and his makeshift family?
And this one is a fairy tale retelling suggested by a newsletter subscriber to read.
The Princess Companion by Melanie Cellier It’s a fairy tale retelling. It was fun to put together clues of which fairy tales were used.
Danger and romance await a woodcutter’s daughter in a royal palace.
Still a lot of month left so I’m looking for my next read. Drop a suggestion in the comments for me.
This month isn’t over yet but I’ve got two fun books to recommend.
We had a few snow/windchill days here in Illinois so school was canceled. That meant I could read!
I dug into this one, no pun intended. I couldn’t stop reading!
And this one. I love the character in this series. Joey Darling is a mess but doing her best to pull it all together but trouble is always finding her.
Book 2 is here! And it’s in Kindle Unlimited
Don’t forget you can grab book 0 for free All in Good Time for free if you don’t already have it. If you get the newsletter then you should have it on your ebook device– if you downloaded it.
What a fun book to write. I was so hungry for cupcakes after writing the farmer’s market scene. Seriously thinking I should attempt to create of few of them in real life, but I’m not great at baking and I’m gluten-free which makes changing a basic recipe a challenge.
So what’s this book about? Glad you asked!
She’s an impulsive risk-taker. He’s got trust issues and a secret past. Can they be the perfect combination or a recipe for disaster?
Alison Dahl works as a pharmaceutical rep for a struggling company. Not wanting to see if she’s next to be laid off, her entrepreneurial spirit kicks in. With a leap of faith, she quits her job and heads to the lake town she loves to open a cupcake shop.
Chad Hastings, a widowed dad known for his loyalty and dependability, has his hands full with a son and a few overzealous matchmaking friends.
When Chad is hired as the general contractor for the cupcake shop remodel, his friends see him and Alison as the perfect recipe for a sweet ending.
Chad’s secret could melt away any hope of a sweet ending.
Can she look beyond his past mistakes?
Can he look past her impulsive risk-taking?
