“Throw a penny in the fountain of the Twilight town square, and you'll be married to your first love . . . “
For ten years, pretty Flynn MacGregor has been turning down the same solid, upright man's marriage proposal. Her friends at the Sweethearts' Knitting Club tell her they're a match made in heaven, but Flynn knows there's only one dangerous reason why she keeps saying no: high school sweetheart Jesse Calloway. She was just sixteen when Jesse was forced out of town under a cloud of suspicion . . . but he's never left her heart.
Now Jesse is back, and every time she turns the corner he's there—gazing at her with his smoldering eyes and tempting her with his kisses. Jesse has never played by the rules, and he's made it clear that he's not going to now.
And Flynn, who's always done just what her family, friends, and fellow knitters have told her to do, must finally break free and claim the love that binds Jesse to her heart.
The True Love Quilting Club by Lori Wilde is $1.99 at Amazon, and $3.99 at Kobo and BN. The price matching fairies are probably going bowling to work this out.
This is the second book in Wilde's Twilight, Texas series. Readers loved the hero, who happens to be a charming single dad, but could have used more depth when it came to the overall story. The True Love Quilting Club has 3.9-star rating on GR.
“The pattern of a quilt will always lead you back home.”
Trixie Lynn Parks changed her name to Emma, shook the dust of Twilight, Texas, off her shoes, and vowed to make it big in the city. But after twelve years of shattered dreams, she heads back to the ladies of the True Love Quilting Club . . . and to her first love, Sam Cheek.
Some things—and some people—sure have changed. Sam has grown from a carefree boy to a single dad. And even though the chemistry between them sizzles hotter than ever, Trixie Lynn quickly discovers she must choose between the fame and fortune that have finally come her way—or the one true love who has the power to mend her patchwork heart.
The First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde is $1.99 at Amazon (and $5.99 elsewhere – keep bowling, fairies!) and it's the third book in Wilde's Twilight, Texas series. Now a bestselling children's author, a woman returns to her hometown, hoping to flaunt her new local-girl-made-good persona while fulfilling the wish of an ailing fan. Talk about some feels. Readers liked how the sweet, sentimental story fit perfectly with the Christmas-y setting.
“On Christmas Eve, if you sleep with kismet cookies under your pillow and dream of your one true love, he will be your destiny.”
The townsfolk of Twilight, Texas, believe the legend, but not Sarah Collier—not since she was a pudgy teenager, running down the church aisle on Christmas Day in a jingle bell sweater and reindeer antlers, trying to stop Travis Walker from marrying someone else. She may be grown-up, slimmed-down, bestselling children's book author “Sadie Cool”now, but Sarah will never forget that day. And she'll never fall foolishly in love again!
But when a letter from a sick fan brings Sarah back to Twilight, she's shocked to discover that Travis is the little girl's father—unattached and hotter than ever. His smile still makes her melt, but Sarah knows that ship has sailed. Travis, however, might have different ideas.
The Welcome Home Garden Club by Lori Wilde is $1.99 at Amazon ($5.99 elsewhere again). This is the fourth book in Wilde's Twilight, Texas series. With a bad boy turned Green Beret, this is likely to set off catnip alarms like nobody's business. Readers found the romance between the her and heroine, and their history with one another, to be believable, though some found that it didn't quite fit with the small town Texas setting.
Who are these people? Four books into a series and I barely know the main characters. While this book is also set in Twilight, Texas, only the members of the Garden Club and the Sheriff are familiar. Six of them are the ladies who are a part of every club in town and the three heroines from previous books. Since I actually read the whole series, I would have enjoyed a book that paid more attention to these ladies. I already liked them.
Instead we get stuck with a bunch of people we don’t really know.
Have you read this one?
“Traditional meaning of Pink and White Roses: I love you still and always will.”
Caitlyn Marsh stopped believing in happily-ever-after when high-school sweetheart, Gideon Garza, left for Iraq. Now she raises her small son while her matchmaking gardening club members drive her crazy. Then Caitlyn's world turns upside-down when Gideon swaggers back to Twilight.
Gideon had left town in the middle of night with threats ringing in his ears. A lot of things have changed since then. This bad boy-turned-Green Beret bears scars from the war, the timid girl he loved is an independent mother, and the father who refused to recognize his son in life has, in death, left him a vast cattle ranch.
He still aches for Caitlyn, and now there's a dark-haired boy who looks exactly like Gideon did at that age. Could the child be his? And can this war-weary soldier overcome the scars of the past to claim the family he so richly deserves?
