Product Description

Love Finds You in Valentine, Nebraska What can a California girl do with a few dusty acres of land in rural Nebraska? So Kennedy Blaine wonders after she inherits a ranch in the small, western-style town of Valentine, Nebraska. As Kennedy makes arrangements to sell the property, she finds herself drawn to the ranch and to its attractive manager, Derek Sterling. She decides to spend the summer in her ancestral home and reconnect with family members. But soon Kennedy is subjected to harassment by someone who clearly wants her to leave Valentine. Depending on Gods protection and Dereks assistance, she sets out to discover who is behind the offenses. But when her search reveals painful details about her family and raises questions about Dereks own past, will Kennedy still want to know the truth? Love Finds You is a series of full-length romance novels that give readers a peek into the flavor of local life across the United States. The novels are uniquely named after actual American towns with quirky, interesting names that inspire romance and are just plain fun! This means that each fictional story draws on the compelling history or unique character of a real place. Our fresh, original love stories will feature everything from romance kindled in small towns, to old loves lost and found on the high plains, to new loves discovered at exciting vacation getaways.

I was going to start this but then The Swiss Courier came and sidetracked me LOL.

I was going to participate in A-Z but I just did my WoW post and I had to TYPE out the whole synopsis because Blogger wouldn't let me paste stuff!!! Sooo if I can copy/paste later I want to do this!

I've seen some of these Summerside books on the shelves. They look wonderful! I've got to try a few of them.

Project Journal said...

LOL! I know, right!? Well, I do it a lot! I'm gonna look at my bookshelves again and see if that jogs my memory (no I STILL don't remember, though I did have a physics test today so my head's filled chockfull of physics : /)

Oh! Finished Kite Runner.... : ( Soooooo sad! I, honestly, didn't want it to end. I'm torn whether I like the ending or not...still pondering it. You should totally give it a try even if it's not your typical genre. I'm looking forward to reading A Thousand Splendid Suns in the near future hopefully : )
TTYL!

Lori (sugarandgrits) said...

Thanks for sharing!

Project Journal said...

No, I haven't read it. I've read the first two chapters...the writing is a very different style, but the storyline is really good. Maybe you should give it a try : )

By the way, I like the new background!

I got another follower on my blog!!!!

Lori (sugarandgrits) said...

I'll keep it in mind, but I'd rather hear what you think about it when you're done.

Thanks!! This daisy looks better than the other one, and I like the yellow/gold font better than the white.

YAY...another follower! Good for you! :)

Project Journal said...
