    I have a question for all you knowledgeable people. If we have an ARC copy, are we allowed to post first lines here, or would it be better to wait until release date?

    Wow, I’m loving this book.

    Nick Stafford stared at the half-buried, round-roofed dwelling and realized he couldn’t go through with the elementary school principal’s edict. Not if it meant meeting with a hermit who lived in a toadstool shack tucked so deep in the forest that woodland mice couldn’t find it.
    Home on the Range by Ruth Logan Herne

    I couldn’t stop at one! I am dying to dive into this one! Two blog posts and I shall reward myself with Ruthy goodness 😀

    I loved The Isaac Project and I just read Finders Keepers last month.

    “It was like being in jail.”
    Can’t Help Falling by Kara Isaac

    I just started this one this afternoon and I am already a third of the way through! Looking forward to my kids going to bed tonight so I can keep reading! Lol
    I met Kara Isaac at the CFRR in August and I loved her New Zealand wit. I read Close to You right after the Retreat and couldn’t wait for this book to be released!

      oh i can’t wait to read this one! Isn’t Kara delightful? 🙂

    Jerusalem, 994 BC

    Darkness curtained the sky, hiding the stars, sheltering Bathsheba in the inner courtyard of her home.

    Paige Warren checked her watch, then peeked around Miss Trudy’s silver head for the dozenth time. ~ Just a Kiss by Denise Hunter

    I’m hoping to start this book soon. I’ve been so looking forward to reading Riley & Paige’s story, though a little sad that it is the last Summer Harbor novel.

    • Carrie

      ahhhhhhhh i haven’t read any of the Summer Harbor books yet and it’s killing me!
