Third Time's the Charm

About the book: Book two in the Three Rivers Ranch Romance series by bestselling author, Liz Isaacson. 

First Lieutenant Peter Marshall has never felt as safe and whole as he does at Three Rivers Ranch. With massive scars covering most of his upper body, he's self-conscious and searching for his life's purpose. He thinks he's found it in Courage Reins, an equine therapy program for veterans he's starting out at the ranch. He didn't plan on the beautiful Chelsea Ackerman looking at his deformities with admiration. 

After her second failed engagement, Chelsea vows she'll never wear another diamond ring. But as she and Pete work together to train the horses and launch Courage Reins, she heals faster than she thought possible. Pete has a truckload of debt and no way to provide for a family, but Chelsea helps him see past all the obstacles, all the scars. With so many unknowns, Pete and Chelsea will have to develop the love, acceptance, and faith needed to find their happily ever after. 

My review: This book is billed as an inspirational romance and I'd have to say that that description is perfect. This book is a cute, clean, fun romance that you will love reading. 

Chelsea is hurting. Her fiance killed himself and there wasn't a thing she could do to help him. She's also hurting because he was verbally abusive and that's something she's going to have to work through. Either way, she is convinced that there is no way that she's ever going to get engaged again. She decides to head back to her family's ranch, Three Rivers Ranch, to see if she can heal from her scars.

And that's when she meets Pete. Pete is a war veteran with scars that are obvious. But he immediately recognizes Chelsea's hidden scars and knows that he can help her. He runs a program, Courage Reins, where he uses horses to combat such scars for veterans, and really anyone that needs such help. Chelsea pretty much refuses to allow him to help her with the horse therapy, believing that she's fine and doesn't need any help. But I love the way that she jumps in to help him with the program. Doing everything from setting up a website to helping him get funding without complaint. 

I loved this book. It's a cute, fun romance that you won't want to put down.

I got this book for free from Amazon.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
