REVIEW: Ever since I learned fellow blogger was writing a book, I was as usual, thrilled. Not only that, but that same blogger was also publishing said book with Harvest House. As time passed, Rachel shared more details about her upcoming novel and eventually we learned it was not just a novel, but a series of books. All of which begins with this novella. Coming in at a mere 54 pages (there’s no shortage of amazing), this novella introduces us to Jem and Merinda. Two women living in 1900s Toronto, who are not only unconventional (to say nothing of their lack of proper pursuits like keeping a home for a husband), they are also consulting detectives.

REVIEW: What began in Undeniably Yours draws to a swoon-worthy close in this sweet novella that is more “chapter story” than anything else. Without breaking itself into sections, this scene-long story gives us a peek into the lives of two characters we began to root for in A Love Like Ours, Becky last Porter family novel. The story is as simplistically sweet as it is perfect, about single mom Amber and the kind (not to mention good-looking) single father fireman Will, who captures her guarded heart. Having been dating for seven months, Amber and Will have discussed their future, but recently Will hasn’t been as excited about that future leading Amber to doubt what’s next. A flat tire, walk in the rain and Christmas carols are all involved in what comes next – which is, of course perfectly festive.   Continue reading “The Proposal by Becky Wade”
