The Seventh Sergeant

About the book: Can a devastating injury actually be a blessing for Reese and Carly? 

Life has finally started to settle down for Sergeant Reese Sanders after his devastating injury overseas. Discharged from the Army and now with a good job at Courage Reins, an equine therapy center at Three Rivers Ranch, he’s finally found happiness. Then down-on-her luck Carly Watters becomes his veteran care coordinator and wants to assist him with tasks he most definitely doesn’t need her help with—until a horrific fall puts him right back where he was years ago: Injured and depressed. 

Carly dislikes small towns almost as much as she loathes cowboys. But she finds herself faced with both when she gets assigned to Reese's case. Because of his injury, she moves to Three Rivers to help him full-time, and her unhappiness follows her around like a dark cloud. 

Reese will need to let go of his embarrassment and pride to allow Carly to help him—and love him. And Carly will have to admit that living in …

Favorite Friday - Sarah Eden Presentation

Wow, my daughter and I were lucky enough the other night to get to go listen to Sarah Eden at the Provo Library.







She is just amazing! It's fun to go to book launches and signings, but you really can't beat this type of presentation. Sarah made us laugh, she was so fun to listen to. I loved the uniqueness of her presentation. And it was really fun that she makes up her own words, that's something we have in common!



She read us an excerpt from an upcoming book, can't wait for Linus' story! And she had a signing for hours on end where everyone was able to bring their books. Notice that in the stained glass window picture it was still light outside, but in the picture of us with Sarah it's dark, that's the same window! We waited in line about 45 minutes to talk to her. She was just amazing. And she did some amazing giveaways! Including bookmarks that she made by hand, they were gorgeous!



And hello, Provo City Library. I had never been there before, but it was just…

Blog Tour - Lies and Letters

About the book: After a season in London, Charlotte Lyons is still regrettably unattached. With her family’s finances in peril, she is sent away with her sister to a bleak coastal town where she is expected to pursue a wealthy earl. Beautiful and talented, how could she possibly fail? But when her heart is captured by someone entirely unexpected, Charlotte finds herself caught up in a web of lies and intrigue. Between hardship and sorrow, she finds more than she bargained for, forced to choose between the life she once wanted and a new love she never imagined.

My review: I really LOVE Ashtyn Newbold's books! I love the way she writes, her characters, the growth of her characters, and the plots. I think she's really a master at the Regency Romance genre.

Charlotte's character really annoyed me at the beginning of the book. She was not a nice person, to anyone, even her family. Something I realized as I read the book was that she had learned her behavior from her own mother an…
