Bargain books August 29, 2020

BookBub has a couple of bargain book collections to tell us about today.

Chapter one in the first set opens with three feisty sisters planning an unwanted intervention. The recipient sister is not happy. Leave me alone to grieve my break-up in peace. Of course, no one is listening to her.

The Gustafson Girls Box Set: A Series About Sisters 

MEET JULIETTE
Juliette isn’t thrilled when her well-meaning sisters devise The Monday ManDates; an intervention plan requiring Juliette to endure a series of disastrous blind dates.

MEET RENATA
Renata’s life is going exactly the way she wants it. A beautiful home. A wonderful husband and four boys who make her life oh-so-sweet and (almost) complete. That is, until Juliette opens up a can of worms labeled ‘Angela Clinton’ at a G-FOURce meeting, and things are said that can’t be taken back.

MEET PHOEBE
A wild child. A Jesus freak. A tangled past and a second chance at love. Oh, the FIREWORKS when these two worlds collide! Phoebe has been running wild her whole life. A gifted and passionate artist, Phoebe charges full throttle into the future, never investing in anything or anyone for longer than it takes to finish a job. When a family emergency stirs up painful memories long ago laid to rest, Phoebe’s lacquered facade shatters.

MEET GIA
When Gia uncovers a past she didn’t know she had, will she trust in a future she can’t control? Gia, the youngest Gustafson sister, is officially coming of age…but now what? She feels like she’s standing still while everything and everyone around her is moving at lightning speed. Her best friend, Ricky Zander, is acting like a stranger, her grandparents have grown old overnight, and her older sisters have all found their happily-ever-afters.

*******************

The first chapter in this next bargain Box Set starts out with a high level of angst, Both parties are feeling it. She needs this contract to shore up her fledgling business. He needs to sign one in fulfillment of what he hopes is a final obligation to his vindictive ex girlfriend.

A Taste of Romance Box Set: Books 1 – 3 

A Splash of Substance (Book 1)
Paige Jackson wants to change the world, one catering job at a time. She started her business to show anyone who asked that it was possible to turn locally grown, low-to-zero-waste cooking into gourmet fare that satisfied even the snootiest diner.

Jackson Trent never wanted to get saddled with managing a fundraiser. He took the job on Capitol Hill to help influence public policy as a way to live out his faith. But when the Senator gives out an assignment, he knows he’d better suck it up and do the work. Even if it means working with a caterer like Paige.

A Pinch of Promise (Book 2)
In the ten years since Ben Taylor last saw Marie, no other woman has measured up. After he meets Rebecca Fisher, the physical therapist rehabilitating his knee, Ben is convinced that she is the same woman he fell in love with so many years ago. She denies it at first, but his persistence causes her to admit the truth. Right before she pushes him away.

A Dash of Daring (Book 3)
Amy Harris is the after-school care coordinator and long-term sub at the same inner city high school she graduated from. She’s always avoided the complications of dating outside her multi-ethnic heritage. Until Zach got hired.

******************

Current read: Two of the three collections in progress the last few days are finished and the third one is half done (The Rock Harbor Mystery Collection.)

I need to start something else to run alongside this collection. For breaks.

It’s tempting to go straight to one of today’s finds but I think I should knock off another of the older ones on the list first. Besides I’ve not read this new author yet and I need to.

Cowboy Ranch: Clean & Wholesome Cowboy Romance (Triple J Ranch Book 2)

A detective’s daughter. A rugged rancher. Can they track down cattle rustlers and lasso love?

Callie Houston needs a break from misery. But when her car breaks down on her way to a rodeo, she finds herself stranded in small-town Montana. Praying that God has a plan for her misfortune, she’s flattered when two handsome brothers offer their ranch for the night.

Luke Manning isn’t sure he’s ready to settle down. But when he and his brother stumble across a woman down on her luck, neither hesitates to compete for the beauty’s affection. But if he wants to win her heart, he must prove he’s different from the shallow men of her past.

Happy Reading y’all
