The Rocky Mountain Heiress Collection by Kathleen Y'barbo

I quite enjoyed reading these three books, having previously read The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck, I was pleased to be able to read the other books in the series. I really liked seeing characters from one book, appear in another so I could see what had happened with many of the characters.

 The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper

Eugenia wants to see the west and sees her opportunity when she becomes a governess to Daniel Beck's daughter.  Her family at home feels like this is an adventure that wills soon play out and she will come home shortly.  Instead she finds herself very heavily involved in the lives of Daniel, his daughter, and the other town folk that she meets.

Northern Light Trilogy by Lisa Tawn Bergren

This book consists of the following three titles.  It was great to have the story altogether and not have to wait for the next book to come out to find out what happens next.

The Captain's Bride tells the story of a group of friends and family leaving Norway and starting over a new life.  It tells of what they have to endure to start over and some of the interactions of the story members along the way.  Many of the characters are torn between what they know should be done and what they actually do.

Deep Harbor continues the story with several of the characters settled into what seems like the good life, and  others enduring hardships of death and deceit. The must depend on each other to get through the tough times no matter what the cost.

Midnight Sun tells the conclusion of the story as the characters search for what has been lost and the temptations they face along the way.

I would recommend this series and author to anyone to read.

Wishing on Willows by Katie Ganshert

Another good book from Katie Ganshert, author of Wildflowers from Winter.  I had enjoyed reading this book and was glad to be able to read it.   After Robin's husband dies, she is left to care for their three year old son and manage the cafe she has worked hard for.  When Ian comes in and tries to get her to give up her cafe, she puts up quite a fight.  The book tells of their time together and how they come to a resolution to this dilemma. 

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
