All, TBR Pile

My TBR Pile – 3/14/16

Happy Monday, Reader friends! I pray you had a blessed weekend! I’m enjoying the spring weather. The winter seemed too long to me. This week I’m looking forward to putting a dent in my TBR pile. Even though I haven’t finished last week’s pile, I’m hoping I can get to this week’s as well. What will you be reading this week?

Rhonda McKnight’s Righteous Ways


I’ve been looking forward to this book since it was featured on my Friday’s sales blog. Now, I have time read it. 🙂

The Blurb: Samaria Jacobs would be living a platinum life as the wife of successful music producer, Mekhi Johnson, that is if she weren’t on her way to prison. Samaria’s always been a bit of a Grinch, but this year she feels like she has absolutely nothing to be grateful for. Will the desperate situation of an old friend make her examine her life at its lowest moment and find that even in her fear, shame, and sorrow that God has given her with the capacity to love?

Nancy Moser’s Bride of the Summerfields


I’ve been looking forward to this book ever since I read book one, Love of the Summerfields. ​You can read my review of book one HERE.

The Blurb: If you enjoy Downton Abbey, you’ll enjoy the Manor House Series…

1882 England: The grand estate of Summerfield needs an influx of cash.

Will a marriage to a rich save the Weston family’s legacy–or destroy it?

American heiress Genevieve Farrow travels to Summerfield to marry Morgan Weston, the heir to the earldom–a man she’s only met in letters. In need of confidence, and under the thumb of an ambitious mother, she struggles to win the heart of the man she’s come to love.

Rebellious daughter Clarissa Weston returns from her secret life on the London stage seeking acceptance and a new start. Back at Summerfield she finds a family who has carried on without her. Can Clarissa rise above her disappointment and find a new purpose?

Orphaned goddaughter Tilda Cavendish visits Summerfield Manor and brings with her blackmail, ulterior motives, and the need to choose what kind of woman she will become.

Former maid Molly Wallace returns to Summerfield Manor to nurse an invalid mother. She finds herself torn between an old love and a new one, an old destiny and one beyond her imaginings.“

Vanessa Riley’s Swept Away


I’m looking forward to reading this novel. I’m a fan of Cinderella and Ms. Riley’s writing so win-win!

The Blurb: Charlotte Downing, the Duchess of Charming, wants what she wants. Today, it’s a fine pair of lacy slippers crafted by the renowned Ella’s Establishment. To be picture perfect for her presentation to the queen, Charlotte will survive crashed ceilings and falling bricks. Yet, has she met her match in the conservative merchant, whose autumn-colored eyes make her pulse race, especially when he says no?
Caught between the glittering world of the ton and the respectable profession of selling shoes, Edwin Cinder can’t understand the lady’s persistence or the fire lighting her blue eyes when she’s challenged. With his lack of pedigree, there’s no chance for this common God-fearing man to win her hand, but he’ll risk all to save the duchess from the ravages of a London gale.
Swept Away is a Regency retelling of Cinderella with a twist.
This is the Young Adult Version of Swept Away. It has discussion questions and a lesser focus on some romantic elements.

Julie Lessman’s A Hope Undaunted


I downloaded this book for free on my eReader. I haven’t read a lot of Ms. Lessman, so I was glad for a chance to read one of her works again. (Pssst: it may still be free on eBooks.)

The Blurb: What happens when the boy she loved to hate becomes the man she hates to love?
The 1920s are drawing to a close, and feisty Katie O’Connor is the epitome of the new woman–smart and sassy with goals for her future that include the perfect husband and a challenging career in law. Her boyfriend Jack fits all of her criteria for a husband–good-looking, well-connected, wealthy, and eating out of her hand. But when she is forced to spend the summer of 1929 with Luke McGee, the bane of her childhood existence, Katie comes face-to-face with a choice. Will she follow her well-laid plans to marry Jack? Or will she fall for the man she swore to despise forever?”
