Review ~ Table for One

I'm starting something new today - reviews. I'm reviewing a few of the titles from The Wild Rose Press and posting them here as time permits. Having just finished Georgiana Daniels' wonderfully funny, Table for One that's where I'll start.

Ms. Daniels blends the mishaps and misfortunes of Lucy Brocklehurst’s life into a charming tale of love and happy endings.

Lucy, as are all the single females in the church, is infatuated with the new youth minister, Carter but he seems to be equally infatuated with Marci. Lucy, along with Edgar and his meddling mother, Mrs. Flowers, sign up as youth group chaperones. Lucy joins because of Carter and all thought Lucy has no clue, Edgar joins because of her.

As Lucy’s 30th birthday arrives, her well-meaning mother plans Lucy a surprise party, but to Lucy’s horror only men have been invited. She arrives, delivered by her older brother, in sweats and an old tee shirt. After Carter tells Lucy he’s found her church notebook, the very one she’d doodled in during services linking her name and Carter’s, he tells her he wants to be “just friends”. Humiliated and also embarrassed by her parents’ hopes of finding her a date, she asks has Edgar to take her home.

Lucy then realizes maybe Edgar is the one who deserves her heart and they secretly start dating and Edgar’s mother begins an all out campaign to keep them apart. Edgar finally proposes but Lucy’s resolves begins to collapse. She feels she must let Edgar go and not make him choose between her and his mother, but a week doesn’t pass until Lucy spots Edgar with Marci!

Pick up a copy of Table for One for the poignantly sweet outcome of Lucy’s and Edgar’s relationship.

I recommend this book for a wonderfully happy romp through love and romance. I give it my Red Heart Award:

Through The Eyes of Love




Here is a blurb from my White Rosebud published by The Wild Rose Press. I hope you enjoy it!

Once the gangly boy next door, Mike Redmond grew into a six-foot, six-inch man. His former occupation as a guitarist in a Christian Rock Band necessitated a certain look including waist-length blond hair, goatee and hoop earrings. Forced into a major career change, Mike gave the situation over to God and follows what the Lord put on his heart. Opening a music store in Clearview and winning Audra's love.

Audra Pope runs a successful insurance agency but shies away from relationships, including one with God. Men want a perfect "magazine ad" woman and, due to her spine deformity, Audra doesn't meet that standard. Although Mike's outward appearance bothers an influential business owner, Audra begins to fall in love with him. Can she learn to see people, including herself, the way God does from the inside out?

This book is available for purchase through many outlets, including Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.
