My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream is the second book in the Rebecca Steele series by Joanne Patterson. Finding the Dream is a very sweet romance with some touching moments. Rebecca finds herself in new circumstances and things around her are changing rapidly, except her best friend. She seems to be doing well in her career, but then life turns upside down . Major decisions have to be made, and well, the path isn’t straight. The characters are intense and well rounded. The plot is interesting. I overall enjoyed this sweet romance.

Wow!
It is a very easy light romance that had a few quick twists that fit the story well.
This was the first book I read from this author and I will be looking out for more.
The author made this story very inspiring and realistic.
Becky and Johnny are the journey of this story.
I was surprised that I liked this book because the setting was different from what I usually enjoy.
This is the type of book you read to feel good, refreshing is the best word to describe it.
I am looking forward to book three.
This story made me cry in a few spots it had me day dreaming in between truly living through the pages.
Love and country music officially go together.
So romantic.

Betrayal at the Beach (Dangerous Curves Book 1) by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Colleen Noyes

Betrayal at the Beach (Dangerous Curves #1)Betrayal at the Beach by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Betrayal at the Beach was a great cozy mystery story. You can’t help but be drawn to Sunshine Baker and her amateur sleuth skills. This was just the type of book that you would want to read on a cold and snowy afternoon in a blanket with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate, like I did.

I felt that Sunshine was a very strong character whose quirkiness came through beautifully. This was a lighthearted read and the perfect way to start a new year. The secondary characters all enhanced the story and I’m hoping that as a series goes on will get to know them even more in depth.

It had just the right amount of mystery you would expect for a true cozy book. It was a very quick read that kept you engaged from page one to the last page. I very much enjoyed this authors writing style with just the right amount of humor.

If you enjoy quick reads, and true cozy mysteries, then you will want to pick this book up and give this series a try.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While the this is the second installment to this series, it is just as good as the first. Before this series I had never read anything by this author before but I will definitely be looking into more of this authors work. Their word building is fantastic, the characters are wonderful, and the overall plot and storyline flowed together beautifully. This book was overall a fun, sweet romance, that puts you right in the middle of Becky’s life. Becky is energetic, spirited, loving, and loyal to those closest to her. Meanwhile Chance is a hardworking, sweet, and sexy cowboy who would do anything to make Becky happy. While this book is on the shorter side, and I believe there were scenes that could have been more descriptive. But overall this book was perfect for the short western romance that it was.

A Cold Creek Christmas (Reigning Hearts, Book 5) by KG Fletcher – Review by Dahnielle Hibbert

A Cold Creek Christmas (Reigning Hearts, #5)A Cold Creek Christmas by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This sweet Christmas Novella has everything you could ever want in a HEA story for the holidays. There is a grinch whose heart gets softened, there is a little girl who wants nothing more than a new mommy for Christmas and a man who loves his daughter but is lonely. The secondary characters are amazing people and really help the story along. I would say this story is more character driven but very enjoyable nonetheless. This tale could easily be played out on the TV during Hallmark or Lifetime Small Town Holiday Romances. If your looking for a great Holiday HEA look no further! Definitely worth the read!

Cross Country Christmas ( A Silver Buckle Brides Romance) by Laurie Lewis- Review by Jaime Owens

Cross-Country Christmas (Silver Buckle Brides #1)Cross-Country Christmas by Laurie L.C. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This has got to be one of the sweetest books i’ve ever read. Reese and CC were an amazing set of characters with a completely magical romance. The setting was beautiful and oh so Christmassy. If you are a big fan of Hallmarks Countdown to Christmas this book is right up your alley. This book was so beautiful to read.

Cross-Country Christmas (Silver Buckle Brides #1)Cross-Country Christmas by Laurie L.C. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I tend to start and finish books like this quickly, but this story was so good and life got in the way so it was a slow read for me this week. Laurie Lewis did a fantastic job making characters that were so easy to fall in love with. We meet CC who has gone through a horrible breakup and is caught in the worst possible situation with no idea how to get out of it. Insert her knight in shining armor – equipped with cowboy boots and a rancher’s hat – and maybe there is a way her horrible situation can turn into a blessing in disguise. I loved the timid feel from both main characters and the love that was felt between Carlos and Emmie. It spoke volumes that there was so much to be uncovered and that it happened slowly. It felt like a true love story, rather than a rushed one. Reese had gone through a major loss in his life and had some demons that he needed to work through while CC was learning to face her own. The comparisons between the ranch and their lives were beautiful and heartwarming. This story was well thought out and well written. It made me want to read more from this author and learn what else is to come, not only for the main characters but for the families and the ranch itself. If you haven’t started your Christmas reads for the year, this is definitely a great one to start with!

Oh what a sweet romance! This story brought such joy to my heart. I absolutely love CC and Reese. In chapter 5 when Reese talks about the pond it reminded me so much of my husband and how he renewed my faith in love. This is one of the feel good reads you can’t help but enjoy! Its a great book to curl up with a chilly day with your favorite fuzzy blanket. Its even sweeter to read about hearts being repaired and trust being built! This truly is the perfect sweet romantic read! I did not want to put this book down!

Cowboys, Christmas and Charm
A beautiful holiday romance that brings two lost souls together through circumstance. With heart felt moments and a wonderful setting this book had me hooked. The characters were relatable and mature with both facing their own baggage and hoping to make it through together. Will definitely check out more from this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cross-Country Christmas (A Silver Buckle Brides Romance) by Laurie Lewis was a very interesting Christmas book to read. While I personally love a good Christmas book, this is one that I found myself thinking I could really read anytime if year, it was just that good. Ms. Lewis gives us fantastic but complex characters, lots of emotion, an amazing plot, and so much more that you’ll feel like your on a wild and bumpy ride. Filled with hurting and healing hearts, the celebration of Christmas, romance, and family this book will have you flipping the pages to see what happens next. This wonderful book opens with our main character the beautiful CC not knowing where she is or how she got there, will she be happy with her savior or will her secrets keep her from being happy? Will CC be saved by the handsome Reese? Will she be able to reveal her secrets and uncover his? You’ll have to read Cross-Country Christmas (A Silver Buckle Brides Romance) by Laurie Lewis to find out for yourself.
