The Matchmaking Game by Donna Hatch, the newest Timeless Romance single, is entertaining, refreshing and fun to read. Rowena Emerson is a young woman on a mission but she wants Evan Barnes, a long-time neighbor and recently returned war veteran, to assist her. Rowena wants her widowed father to marry Evan’s recently widowed mother. With carefully planning Rowena feels certain she and Evan will succeed; however, Evan though seems cautious and reluctant about everything, including his friendship with Rowena. Full of unexpected twists and touching exchanges, Donna Hatch creates a charming story of love, loss, and hope. Heather B. Moore gave me a copy of The Matchmaking Game for my candid review.
To the Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden was a touching story of struggle and redemption. Once again Elizabeth Camden did not disappoint with her new historical novel about war, love, and pearls. Jenny is a disciplined army nurse who has worked hard on the night shift to provide a secure life for herself and Simon who raised her. Ryan is the naval officer that won Jenny’s heart and then disappeared.
I love how Camden seems to effortlessly weave historical details into a moving and poignant plot. Full of surprises, heartbreak, and unexpected turns, To the Farthest Shores is a story of depth and struggle that explores forgiveness, revenge, and resilience.
Full of strong, complex characters, and impeccable historical details, this a complex story worth reading. Bethany House gave me a complimentary copy of To the Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden for my candid review.
