Vacation time

Welcome to all readers of this blog.
I am just back from a little much-deserved (IMHO) holiday and trying to catch up on all the happenings. But truthfully, I am still a bit mellowed out from vacationing. It was a time to catch up on some great reading. There are some great reads with the LI lines. I enjoyed a chance to catch up on my TBR pile. Well, to start to catch up at any rate.

To give others a chance to read some of these great stories I am giving away a copy of The Road to Love (written by me :-) ). To qualify for a draw on this book simply post a comment about one of the LI books you have read--either contemporary or historical and tell us why you liked it.

Hello!

First, I want to say that I am a big fan of your books, Linda Ford.

As for a Love Inspired book I have read...well, I have read quite a few, but I will go with the one that is fresh in my mind and the most recent one I read...Victoria Bylin's The Bounty Hunter's Bride. It was a wonderful and touching story. I loved how she handled each of the characters...even the secondary ones. She made each one of them seem real and made me care about them all. It also had a wonderful message in it about forgiveness, hope, and redemption.

Hello Linda. I haven't read one of your books yet so I can't comment there.

But, I've recently blogged a book review on Frontier Courtship by Valerie Hansen. Here's what I said in that review:

'I found it difficult to put this book down. The intense action, lively dialogue and captivating visual descriptions kept me turning the pages wanting more.
This book makes you think about what it meant to be a woman in the 19th century. Especially a single woman bent on crossing the continent in a covered wagon...in an atmosphere where the wagon train boss made his own law.'


It really struck home how much 'stuff' the women who went before us had to endure, you know?

Oh this is hard there are several i have read and loved. One of the more recent was Valarie Hansens (Im sorry if i spelt that wrong) A frontier Courtship.
I loved this book, its in my top 10 for the year. I loved the story as im partial to historical books on the west and on wagon trains.
Loved the added drama with the herione being in danger and the whole story.
Now i read Anita Mea's comments I totally agree.

Jennifer,
I just have to say how happy you've made me by saying you're a big fan.

And to the other ladies, aren't the covers on the new historicals great?

Kimmy, Carolynne is a dear friend of mine. She's away right now but she'll love to know you picked up her book.

Blessings,
Linda

I loved Cathy Marie Hake's Twin Blessings and also really enjoyed Gail Gaymer Martin's A Family for Christmas. Cathy's style of humor has me reading every book she puts out, and I really like the fact that Gail had an spiritually mature hero in A Family for Christmas. So many of the Christian romances focus on the heroine's spiritual walk and growth, so it was very refreshing to see a man in that leadership position, especially since that's the way God ordained a family to function.
