Bargain book January 13, 2021

BookBub has a bargain suggestion for us. It’s an author I’ve never read and while it’s listed as clean the first few pages seem a little edgy, I’m not sure what to expect. It’s well written, so far anyway, so I’d like to give it a chance.

Amber Waves of Grace

Amazon quote:

After her father’s accident, Corrie Lancaster moves back to the family farm just in time to help with the harvest. With a bumper crop of wheat waiting, the farm’s only hired hand quits, leaving Corrie with no choice but to accept the help of her old boyfriend’s older brother, Aaron Tuttle. It seems like the perfect plan until Corrie realizes ex-flame Luke isn’t over her. But even with Luke’s apologies and attempts to rekindle their romance, Corrie can’t forget his past betrayal.

Between harvesting, keeping tabs on her younger siblings, and watching her parents’ marriage crumble, Corrie leans on Aaron for emotional support. Wading through jealousy was never on Corrie’s to-do list, but as she navigates the choppy waters, she finds herself falling for Aaron’s good looks and charming wit.

Just when Corrie thinks she has everything under control, a stranger seeking shelter comes to the farm, and an old nemesis returns for revenge. As destructive forces align against her, Corrie must decide which man’s love will bring her back to life and restore her faith in herself, her family, and her purpose.

One book is all we have for today. My sources haven’t come through for us and browsing isn’t working well. It’s behaving strangely today, not sure what that’s all about. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

My current read is a mystery box set. I’m having trouble engaging with it so when I get to the end of the current book I’ll switch over to today’s download. Normally I like this author so I’m not sure what’s going on with this series. It’s bogged down in details that are confusing and don’t seem to matter in advancing the story. I’m disappointed but I guess it’s not possible to have a winner every time.

Maybe the breakdown comes because the main focus is on addressing societal issues rather than the story itself.

Well, with or without books it’s still a good day.

It’s true, all is not right in our world these days. Aside from all the regular stuff there is the virus and political upheaval. A encouraging thought crossed my mind this morning. Pressure brings out strength in us. We will never be a hero until we face desperate situations. In this pressure time we are discovering our strengths. It’s pretty cool to discover we are capable of much more than we ever thought possible.

On that encouraging note.

Happy reading.
