It’s funny how things go sometimes. I’ve been thinking back on yesterday’s post and the Traditions of Leap Year theme. It makes me chuckle, the way the day’s book selections went for us. More often than not Romance novels show up regularly but yesterday when romance – chick-flick style – would have fit with the topic perfectly, that’s not what we got. Irony. We were talking about Sadie Hawkins day where tradition say’s it’s one day where a woman can propose to the man of her choosing, if she can catch him. Since most of the available men we know live in books, it’s a good job we weren’t taking the whole subject very seriously. The lack of good novels could have ruined our whole day.
Getting back to every day topics.
Gospel E-books has some bargains for us today (they are on FaceBook). Author Max Lucado is a prolific non-fiction writer and has been for many years. I haven’t read this book but I’ve read some of his others and appreciate his wisdom. I particularly like buying his greeting cards, he has such a thoughtful way of expressing what I’m feeling.
$1.99 for one of his books is good.
How far do you want God to go in getting your attention? Don’t answer too quickly. What if God moved you to another land? (As He did Abraham.) What if He called you out of retirement? (Remember Moses?) How about the voice of an angel or the bowel of a fish (Gideon and Jonah.) God does what it takes to get our attention. That’s the message of this book: the relentless pursuit of God.
Another bargain. This time it’s YA fiction from an author unfamiliar to me. The source is trusted so I expect it will be a good read. It’s $1.99 as well.
Willow Lamott’s best friend is a convicted killer, and no one in the small town of Gilt Hollow will let her forget it. Over four long years, she’s tried to fade into the background—but none of that matters when Ashton Keller comes striding into school, fresh out of juvie and fueled by revenge. The moment their eyes meet, Willow no longer feels invisible. Drawn to the vulnerability behind Ashton’s mask of rage, she sinks deeper into his sinister world and begins to question whether he’s a villain, a savior, or both.
Ashton thought he wanted vengeance, until Willow Lamott stepped back into his life. Now he longs to clear his name and become the person she sees in him. But the closer they get to uncovering the truth, the darker the secrets become, and Ashton wonders if his return to Gilt Hollow will destroy everyone he loves.
A bargain ($0.99) that popped up while I was busy searching – Falling for You. This is book 2 in the Bradford Sisters series, I’ve read book 1 and I think I liked it. I will have to double check that just to be sure. Book 3 Sweet on You is a recent download from a few days ago and it is still $0.99 as well.
Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic schedule to work as the innkeeper at her family’s small-town bed-and-breakfast. She was enjoying the peace of her hometown, Merryweather, Washington, right up until she came face-to-face with Corbin Stewart, the man she loves to hate. A thoughtful rule-follower by nature, Willow threw caution to the wind four years ago when she entrusted her heart to Corbin–and suffered the consequences when it all fell apart.
Former NFL quarterback Corbin is forceful, charming, and accustomed to getting what he wants . . . except where Willow Bradford is concerned. Unable to forget her, he’s never stopped regretting what happened between them. When their paths unexpectedly cross again, he’s determined to make her give him a second chance.
When a decades-old missing persons case finds Corbin and Willow working together, they’re forced to confront their past and who they’ve become–and whether they can risk falling for one another all over again.
Still a bargain at $0.99
Looks like there is no shortage of romance today!
on this quiet Sunday evening.
