Actually, that will be my next book after Portrait of Loyalty by Roseanna White. I’m a bit behind because we moved and books are slow getting to me.
But I expect great things from Pepper!
I understand! I loved A Portrait of Loyalty and hope you’ll enjoy them both!
Loved , loved, loved Bonaventure Circus!
My first line is from Chapter 6 of THE RED RIBBON by Pepper Basham:
“What a horrible way to end a mighty fine kiss”
Paula, me too! Great first chapter line! I’ve seen The Red Ribbon around. How is it?
Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from The Farm Stand by Amy Clipston: “Salina Petersheim huffed as she pulled two wagons piled high with boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables across the parking lot at the Bird-in-Hand marketplace.” I hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
Ellie, Sounds like a good book! I hope you enjoy it!

I’m currently reading A Haven for Her Heart by Susan Anne Mason. It’s an excellent story! I’m just beginning chapter 21, so I’ll share from there.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤📚
