Happy spring everyone. Warm
weather. Flowers. Easter. Spring break. And a great time for reading. If you
like historical romance like I do, may I suggest the fourth in Misty Beller’s Mountain
Dreams series, The Lady and the Mountain Promise.
I love series and if I like the
first book, I have to read until the end of the series. The first in Mountain
Dreams series had me hooked, and I waited eagerly for each of the next book in the series.
The Lady and the Mountain Promise
follows the romance of Marcus, a small western town preacher and Lilly, a
mysterious woman with a young daughter who keeps to herself. Give me any book
with a mystery and I’ll devour it like a sleuth. The author skillfully reveals
Lilly’s secrets over time, while the romance between her and Marcus unfolds
naturally and beautifully.
If you have some reading time
carved out this spring, I recommend this entire series about love and faith in
the Old West.

anger of prejudice all her life. Her Guatemalan mother and wealthy English

Lilly with a one-year-old daughter and a fierce desire to avoid men at all
Marcus Sullivan is a born adventurer,

anything to do with him.
When the threat to Lilly
intensifies and her worst fears come true, how can she find the strength to

he can’t overcome?
