Let’s kick this week off with a book review!
I read Janine Rosche’s Wildflower Road (book 2 in Madison River Romance) over the weekend. Continue reading for my thoughts below!
About the Book
A young widow is tempted to love again after her heartbreaking loss in this new Madison River Romance.
After her husband’s tragic death, Ryann Marie Ashcroft’s only remaining dream is to save her family’s struggling mountain resort. And the last person she wants to rely on is a brooding stranger with secrets of his own.
Nicknamed America’s rock-and-roll pastor, Shane Olson arrives in Montana after a viral video destroys his marriage, his ministry, and his reputation. Working side by side on the banks of the Madison River, he and Ryann get a second chance at love. But not everyone wants to see their happily ever after.
I read book 1 in the Madison River Romance so I was looking forward to reading book 2. Because of the subject matter I was worried that the book would be too heavy, but the chemistry between Ryann and Shane bring a lightheartedness and moments filled with delicious-swooniness that kept me reading into the late night.
I love that Ms. Rosche talked about depression, sin, and so much more. I don’t want to give anything away but the way Shane Olson handled his sin made me admire him all the more.
All in all, Wildflower Road is a great tale of redemption, second chance at love, and the healing power of God’s grace.

About the Author
Although I reside in Ohio with my husband, four children, and two spoiled Labrador retrievers, I have lived and traveled all over the United States. Since each of these lovely places has stolen a piece of my heart, I write to revisit them.
My stories are set in rustic towns, along rivers and between mountains where love is sweet, faith is genuine, and ever afters are happy. I promise you’ll always find inspiring characters, moving tales of redemption, and riveting romance.
My Madison River Romance series from Berkley Romance is set on Montana’s Madison River just west of Yellowstone National Park. The series includes Mistletoe Menagerie (Nov 2019), This Wandering Heart (May 2020), Wildflower Road (Oct 2020), and Glory Falls (Jan 2021). And don’t miss On Angel Wings in the Love’s Pure Light Christmas collection (Barbour) in September 2020.
In addition to writing novels, I teach university courses in Human Development and Family Relations, and I am certified in Family Life Education. This education and experience has led to the production of the Love | Wander | Read Journal, a quarterly digital magazine that provides inspiration for a life well-lived.
