"One Plus One Equals Trouble" by Sondra Kraak

About the Book:
Humiliated after her broken engagement, Claire Montgomery flees her comfortable life in San Francisco for a teaching position in Pine Creek, Washington, a dot of a town nestled in the rugged Cascade Mountains. She’s determined to succeed—for once in her life—only to discover, upon her arrival, that success will have to be won. Thanks to a school board error, two teachers have been hired.

When scandal forces professor Barrett Clarke from his position, he returns to Pine Creek where his uncle, chairman of the school board, sets forth an irresistible offer: teach one year in return for ranchland. For this would-be rancher, nothing is more tempting than resurrecting his childhood dream, and nothing can deter him from earning that land.

Except perhaps Claire Montgomery. Losing the battle for the classroom means losing the ranchland, but winning may mean losing Claire’s heart.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book!  I liked the camaraderie between Claire and Barrett. …

About the Book:
Feeling stressed? Why not relax with an adult coloring book? Rachel J. Good’s Amish Quilts Coloring Book takes you back to a time and place that’s calm. Immerse yourself in a world of peace as you color the 25 different quilts.
Inspired by quilts seen in Amish country, many of these designs are based on traditional patterns, but some have been reimagined or repeated multiple times to create more intricate designs to color. Each quilt is printed on only one side of the page; facing pages contain inspirational Amish proverbs. To make the quilts even more colorful and interesting, sketch fabric designs – plaids, checks, paisleys, flowers, or abstract shapes – into the larger quilt blocks, use pattern stamps, or even collage fabric scraps to the pages. And if the designs inspire you to make quilts of your own, the pages can be used as templates for quilt-making.

"Her Texas Family" by Jill Lynn

About the Book:
Lucy Grayson moves to Texas after her sister convinces her to start fresh in a new place.  She starts by getting a job as Dr. Graham Redmond's temporary assistant.  They are total opposites so working together is not easy.  But Lucy loves Graham's daughter and while spending time with her, Graham and Lucy start to bond.  But will something or someone keep them apart?

My Review:
I loved this book!  I love characters that clash at first then eventually they see that opposites attract!  I definitely will read more of Jill Lynn's books.  It also hit close to home when the Lucy and Graham realized that they needed to turn to God for help as I'm learning to do just that in my own life.  This was the first book I've read by Jill Lynn but it won't be my last!

~I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.~
