Tuesday Tidbit

Tsk makes it's first official appearance in 1947, far too late for my Regency stories.

Favorite Book Friday

Love at Sunset Lake (Abundance series) by Sally Bayless contemporary Christian romance. What a wild roller-coaster ride. I recognized bits of myself in her characters. I've made some of the same mistakes. The messes I landed myself in because I didn't bother to check in with God. A satisfying happy ending.

Update: I've less than three chapters to edit. The end is in sight. I've finally stopped finding words that weren't used in Regency times. Woohoo! Which isn't a Regency exclamation. Fancy that!

Favorite Book Friday

Christmas in Abundance (Abundance series novella) by Sally Bayless Christian romance. I disliked both the hero and the heroine to start and fell in love with them as I learned their stories. The story ended up being a page turner. I look forward to reading the other books by Sally Bayless.

Are you ready for Easter?

Add a little reading to your celebration.

The Blessing Basket

The thirteenth novella in the series...

Welcome back to Holiday, USA, small town America, where nothing happens, except holidays... and a little romance, if the hero and heroine trust God.

Cici, Candy Crothers, lies to everyone, except her Holiday Diner boss, only because he informed her if she lied to him he'd fire her. She ran away from an ugly past and still worries it might catch up to her. Sharing her nightmares is nowhere on her list of things to do, ever.

Trace Brown left the Army honorably but not unscathed. Anger controls his life, holding him back from pretty much everything, including becoming a chef at Holiday Diner. The diner's head hostess intrigues him, but not enough to risk sharing his day-to-day battle with PTSD.

Nothing can drive God away. His hand is stretched out still. He is always there, waiting...

Perhaps silly, but I fell for Donny Osmond when I was a little girl. I still love his voice, and then I discovered that his nephew David Osmond has the same quality. Sharing this duet here, so it's easier for me to find it again. :D
