ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Forgotten Memories

Title:   Forgotten Memories 
Series:   Wyoming Sunrise #1 
Author:   Penny Zeller 
Publisher:   Maplebrook Publishing 
Release Date:   August 30, 2022 
Genre:   Christian Historical Romance 

Some memories are best forgotten… 

The Wyoming Territory is rife with lawlessness and disorder, something Annie Ledbetter and her parents discover when their wagon train is robbed. Seven years later, Annie settles into her lifelong dream as a teacher in the small town of Willow Falls. When she meets handsome rancher Caleb Eliason through a humorous misunderstanding, she is quickly drawn to his kind heart and charming smile. 

Former outlaw Caleb Eliason embraces his chance at a fresh start. Gone are the days of robbing stagecoaches and wagon trains. When he falls in love with the new Willow Falls teacher, he doesn’t realize they’ve met before—under much different circumstances. When his past comes to light, will it put the growing love between them at risk? 

Can forgiveness and redemption heal two broken hearts or will the past keep them from sharing a future?
 
EXCERPT:

“Miss Ledbetter!” Charlotte’s panicked tone and waving right hand interrupted Annie’s thoughts.

Annie jerked her head up from the task at hand. “What is it, Charlotte?” Surely an emergency had occurred for Charlotte to have overreacted in such a way.

“Miss Ledbetter, I’ve been trying in vain to capture your attention for the past ten minutes. It’s Tobias Hallman. He’s being a bother again.”

Tobias snorted. “The past ten minutes? More like the past ten seconds.”

“Is this true that you are being a bother, Tobias?” Annie stood for a better view of the conflict between her students.

“It’s possible, ma’am.”

“But, Miss Ledbetter, it is true. Tobias just tied my braids together!” Charlotte reached back behind her and pulled a mass of tangled blonde braids above her head. “See?”

“Tobias…” Annie began.

“Miss Ledbetter, you must do something. My braids are wound together in a jumbled clump. I shall absolutely faint away into a hodgepodge of nothingness if something isn’t done to relieve this knotted mess!”

Tobias rolled his eyes. “Charlotte, you exaggerate like no one I’ve ever known. You’ll no more faint away into a lodge of nothingness than I’ll be on the next stage to California.”

Charlotte spun around in her chair and glared at Tobias. “Not a lodge of nothingness, Tobias Hallman. A hodgepodge of nothingness. You are such an ill-mannered and impertinent boor!”

“You and your big vocabulary. You sling them fancy words around like you’re smart or something. Even you don’t know what they mean.”

Several snickers followed Tobias’s insinuation.

“You take that back, Tobias! I do know what every single word I use means. Every singleword.”

“I’ll not take it back. It’s your own fault about your braids. If they weren’t so long, they wouldn’t find themselves on my desk. Keep them in your own space or next time I’ll bring my ma’s sewing scissors.”

Can Promises Made in Times of Struggle Endure 200 Years?

De Smet, South Dakota—1890

Young women growing up in De Smet live by two rules: don’t go out in a snowstorm and don’t give your heart to Cap Garland. Young Mariah Patterson only managed to obey one. Orphaned and having devoted her youth to scrapping out a life with her brother Charles, Mariah finds herself with no option but to marry the devoted—but dull—Merrill Gowan. Throwing caution to the wind, she seizes an opportunity to lay her feelings at Cap’s feet, even though she knows Cap sees the world through the torch he carries for Laura Ingalls. Mariah is certain her love for Cap will be strong enough to break both bonds, and she’s willing to risk everything to prove it. 

De Smet, South Dakota—1974 

Trixie Gowan is the fourth generation of living Gowan women residing in the sprawling farmhouse on the outskirts of De Smet. Well, former resident. She’s recently acquired her own bachelor girl apartment in Minneapolis, where she works writing ads for a neighborhood paper. She might live and work in the city, but her co-workers still call her Prairie Girl. Thus the inspiration for her comic strip—"Lost Laura"—in which a bespectacled girl in a calico dress tries to make her way in the city. The name is a quiet rebellion having grown up in a household where she’d been forbidden to mention the name, Laura. But when her great-grandmother Mariah’s declining health brings Trixie home for a visit, two things might just keep her there: the bedside manner of Dr. Campbell Carter and the family secret that seems to be spilling from GG’s lips one conversation at a time. 

Visit historic American landmarks through the Doors to the Past series. History and today collide in stories full of mystery, intrigue, faith, and romance.

Finding Her Voice JustRead Blog + Review Tour 

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Finding Her Voice by Donna Gartshore, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Finding Her Voice Title:  Finding Her Voice 
Author:   Donna Gartshore 
Publisher:   Harlequin Love Inspired 
Release Date:   August 23, 2022 
Genre:   Contemporary Romance, Christian
 
Overcoming their differences  
Could be the answer to all their problems 

Bridget Connelly dreams of buying her boss’s veterinary clinic and starting her own business—but so does auditor Sawyer Blume. Despite her trust issues toward men, it’s hard to stay rivals when Sawyer’s traumatized daughter bonds with Bridget’s adorable pup. And when another buyer tries to outbid them both, working together might give them everything they want…including each other.
 
EXCERPT:

Sawyer was happy that Delilah agreed to go to Sunday school with Tyson, but when she left, memories assaulted him of Tina and himself, with a younger Delilah, sitting in a pew. He had believed in so much then: in the saving power of God, in the sanctity of a marriage he didn’t know would be forced to an end so soon.

Panic tightened his chest and he fought the urge to bolt out of the church. He sat at the end of the pew and Mildred sat beside him. He didn’t want to alarm her or draw attention to himself, so he made himself breathe slowly in and out and stared at the program until the swimming words came into focus.

When his chest stopped stuttering, Sawyer took a moment to scan the congregation, instinctively searching for Bridget. He was in the back, and most of the other attendees were already seated when they’d come in, and she wouldn’t have seen him arrive or known to look for him. He spotted her just as the worship music swelled to joyously greet the morning and the congregation rose in response. She was standing between an older man and woman, who he assumed were her parents. She wore a white-and-purple-flowered sundress with a mauve open-knit shawl and her pretty blond hair spilled down her back like a waterfall of sunbeams.

The sight of her had the paradoxical impact of comforting and unsettling him.
