Last week I saw some great cover reveals popping up over blogs and social media. Most of them were for fall releases, so I’m not going to dive into those quite yet. Instead, here’s one I’m looking forward to that comes out next month! Love the concept of this romantic suspense by Lynn H. Blackburn.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
Can you believe it? Today is the last day of January! At least with the plethora of books releasing Feb 6, I don’t have long to wait for the book I’m looking forward to this week. A brand new series, a castle, split time (between 3 time periods), France…what’s not to like about this one?
First Line Friday
Happy Friday! Is anyone else in denial that this is the last one in January?
The book I’m sharing is one that has made others FLF posts, but I loved this book so much, I had to share again. In fact, I’m going to give you the first paragraph instead of only that one line.
Check it out below then grab the book nearest you and share the first line in the comments. Check out what others are reading and sharing this week at the Hoarding Books Blog.
Happy New Year! 2018 is starting off right with a load of book releases. Always a good way to start a month (or a year for that matter). So, let’s get started with Evelyn Hill’s debut release. Talk about a great way to start a year!
In My Opinion
When Matthew Dean finally makes an appearance in Oregon City a year after he disappeared, Liza Fitzgerald’s life becomes even more complicated. Her fiancé doesn’t remember her at all. But in an attempt to pay back Liza’s kindness when she helps him recover from his injury, Matthew agrees to help her bring in the wheat harvest on her father’s homestead property. But he announces to Liza—in front of the biggest gossips in town—that he will not honor his commitment to marry her.
What he neglects to tell her is why.
As Matthew works side-by-side with Liza, he’s both adamant she should not have to work so hard and impressed by her strength and determination. If only he could remember her—and why he left her behind in the first place.
Perhaps a bit predictable, but a sweet story about second chances and finding home with a bit of a mystery at the edges, His Forgotten Fiancee is a charming story. The vivid descriptions of the beautiful, mostly untamed Oregon City surroundings, reading this book felt a little like stepping back in time. And the small town cliches—which lead to plenty of action—abound.

More About the Book
Liza Fitzpatrick is stunned when her fiancé finally arrives in Oregon City — with amnesia. Matthew Dean refuses to honor a marriage proposal he doesn’t recall making, but Liza needs his help to bring in the harvest, and maybe she can help him remember…
Matthew is attracted to the spirited Liza, and as she tries to help him regain his old memories, the new ones they’re creating together start to make him feel whole. Even as he falls for her again, though, someone’s determined to keep them apart. Will his memory return in time to save their future?
It’s the first Friday of November (can you believe we’re on the downside of another year?). This week I’m featuring a Romantic Suspense that I was thrilled to hear about it. Fans of Lisa Harris’s Nikki Boyd series get to find out the story behind Sarah Boyd’s (Nikki’s sister) disappearance. While Nikki makes appearances in the book, the main characters are the investigators working the Angel Abductor case.
Without further ado, I present to you:
