#3 Longing by Karen Kingsbury: Cody Coleman has had an amazing football season coaching the Lyle High School Buckaroos from last place through an undefeated season to the state championships. His picture is on the front of Sports Illustrated and he goes to New York to be interviewed by ESPN. Life seems to be going great until his friend Cheyenne receives devastating news, and he choses to remain by her side.
From the beginning I have been a Team Cody person, seeing Brandon as the bad guy. After reading this book I can say I no longer feel that way, I like both guys and could see Bailey with either one. I have my preference but I would be happy with either one, both are great guys and strong Christians, and I cannot wait to see who Bailey marries.
#2 Christmas at Barncastle Inn by Susan Page Davis, Darlene Franklin, Janelle Mowery, and Lynette Sowell: At the Barncastle Inn Bed and Breakfast in Vermont guests can choose to celebrate Christmas in any time period. Jayne Barncastle creates a medieval Christmas for their first clients. Marcella Goudreau hopes to rekindle romance for her Grandparents with a World War II Christmas. Stephanie Minter runs into her old boyfriend Matthew Raynor in a pirate setting. Waverly Coe helps Veterinarian Alec Ross recreate the first Christmas.
I could not put this book down! I loved the concept and wish there were more stories about Barncastle. I wish it were a real place because I would love to stay there.
#1 Love Finds You in Prince Edward Island, Canada by Susan Page Davis: Prince Edward Island is a buzz preparing for the arrival of the Prince of Wales; everyone wants to see him including Molly Orland. After her father is injured in a farming accident she gets a job at the Governor’s home where the prince will be staying.
I could not put it this book down. Like many girls I grew up reading the “Anne of Green Gables” series by L.M. Montgomery, and as a result I have always been fascinated by Prince Edward Island. I learned more about the island in the Prologue of this book than anything else I had ever read.
Soli Deo Gloria!
