Life and Love at Mulberry Lane by Rosie Clarke

Life and Love at Mulberry Lane
Book Summary

With Mulberry Lane's favorite pub, The Pig & Whistle undergoing renovation, proprietors Peggy and Able Ronoscki leave the chaos behind and head off on a trip of a lifetime to America. But disaster hits and Peggy finds herself in a critical condition in hospital.

Meanwhile, business is booming for young entrepreneurs Fay Ronoscki and Maggie Rowan with their new restaurant and catering empire. It seems neither has time for love.
But when fate throws a famous global singing sensation and glamourous racing car driver into the girls' paths, falling in love with Jace and Greg seems beyond their control. Cupid has struck.

Life is made up of laughter, love, and tears.

What is next for the folk of Mulberry Lane - can they find the happiness they all so crave?

Another passionate tearjerker from Rosie Clarke in the Mulberry Lane series.

My Thoughts

Life and Love at Mulberry Lane by Rosie Clarke takes us back to Mulberry Lane where The Pig & Whistle is closing for renovations.  Peggy and Able Ronoscki are heading to America on a much-deserved vacation.  Maggie Rowan will handle the food for the bar and the new restaurant while Fay Ronoscki is handling her new catering venture.  Both ladies are excellent chefs, and they want to make of success of both businesses.  Love may derail their plans when an up-and-coming singer sets his sights on Fay and a racing car driver fancies Maggie.  The family is shocked when they receive news that Peggy has been injured, and she is in critical condition.  The family will need to rally together to get through this difficult time.  

Life and Love at Mulberry Lane is the ninth book in The Mulberry Lane series.  While Life and Love at Mulberry Lane can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading the series in order to get the full experience.  It is spring of 1961 which brings changes to Mulberry Lane.  Clothes, music, and attitudes are different.  It is great to catch up with Peggy, Able, Janet, Pip, Maggie, Fay, Freddie, and the other characters.  The author has created a great cast of characters for this series.  I find the characters to be realistic and relatable.  As with each book in the series, we are introduced to new characters.  Freddie, Fay, and Maggie are growing up.  While each one of them says they wish to delay getting married until their careers take off, cupid has a way of striking when you least suspect it.  I have enjoyed seeing the characters grow up and begin their own families.  I like how the family members are close and are there for each other.   The people who live on Mulberry Lane are part of the extended family.  We get to see how each member of the family copes with change, setbacks, and injuries.  I thought the accident that injures Peggy and Able suited the time period and events happening in America.  Peggy’s injuries were unexpected.  The author captured 1961 with local and world events, the music references, the books, movies, and the change in people’s attitudes.  I like that we get to see more career opportunities opening for women.  While the younger generation is open to the shift in values, some of the older generation is still clinging to traditional values.  I am looking forward to seeing what happens next with the residents of Mulberry Lane.  Life and Love at Mulberry Lane is a historical tale about family, community, friendship, and love. 

Life and Love at Mulberry Lane is available from Amazon*.  You can find the other books in The Mulberry Lane series here.  You can find the rest of Rosie Clarke's novels here.  Thank you for joining me today.  I will return on Tuesday, February 7 with Murder at an Irish Castle by Ellie Brannigan.  It is the debut of An Irish Castle Mysteries.  I hope that you have a relaxing weekend.  Take care and Happy Reading!

Love Through the Seasons by Tracie Peterson

 Love through the Seasons

Book Summary

Bestselling author Tracie Peterson celebrates 30 years of writing with a collection of both old and new stories.
 
Four short contemporary romances take readers to the author’s native state of Kansas.
 
Spring – 
Stormy Weather

Gina Bowden, a young widow, fights city council to regain funding for her son’s Boy Scout troop. Something better than lightning hits, though, when she teams up with the equally tenacious troop leader.
Summer – 
King of Hearts

Elise Jost is a non-traditional student just one credit short of graduating. A hard-working woman determined to establish herself in the business world, she enrolls begrudgingly in a Renaissance appreciation course that will complete her credit hours. Her life’s direction takes a different course when she makes a high grade with Professor Ian Hunter.
 
Autumn – 
Falling for Love

Karen Armstrong Jacobs has been widowed for five years and has taken in her mother to live with her. When she learns her mother’s three sisters need a place to live, she opens her home up to them as well. Now there are a lot of repairs that need to be made to the house for safety’s sake. Enter Dan Polk, a widower with a contracting business and a heart for ministry, who makes over the house and Karen's lonely heart.
Winter – 
Silent Nights

Lynn Murphy always dreamed of having the perfect marriage, and for a while she delighted in her dream come true. But Frank’s job has gradually overtaken their lives. When their plans for an anniversary trip at Christmastime are ruined by yet another business obligation, Lynn decides she’s had enough. She runs away to her grandfather’s house looking for answers. Only there does she begin to glimpse the surprising ways that God will satisfy the desires of her heart.
My Thoughts
Love through the Seasons by Tracie Peterson contains four contemporary, Christian stories.  Each story takes place during one of the four seasons.  We get to enjoy spring, summer, fall and winter along with the activities and holidays that take place during those seasons.  We are not given the year in the novellas.  I know that they are not the present day because of certain references.  Each story has a theme or moral.  I like the Christian themes in each novella.  There are good life lessons.  I found the stories to be easy to read.  Each story can be read in a sitting. Each novella begins with a problem, and we see the characters work to overcome them with help from God.  My favorite story was Falling in Love which takes place in autumn.  Karen Armstrong lives with her mother on the family farm.  They soon invite the mother’s sisters to live with them.  Modifications need to be done to the home.  Karen hires Dan Polk and his sons to do the needed renovations.  Karen and Dan have both lost their spouses.  Karen’s mother and aunts decide to do a little matchmaking.  It is a cute story.  I would have liked a whole book involving these characters.  

My least favorite story is Silent Nights (the winter tale).  Lynn Murphy and her husband, Frank have been married for ten years.  Frank is gone on business trips more than he is at home.  When Frank cancels their tenth anniversary trip to Mexico, Lynn decides she has had enough.  She heads to her grandfather’s home to think things through.  There is a lot of bickering which got on my nerves.  Frank and Lynn both have valid issues.  The problem is that neither one has bothered to share their concerns with their spouse. This tale was lacking.  I thought there was too much repetition.  My favorite character in this story is Gramps.    Love through the Seasons comprises four sweet, feel-good romances that transports readers to Kansas.

Love through the Seasons is available from Amazon*.  You can find Tracie Peterson's other novel here.  Thank you for stopping by today.  It is the first day of February!  Valentine's decorations are everywhere along with chocolates and candy.  I have decided to do something special for my neighbor's this year.  I know that many of them are alone which can make a person feel down.  I thought I would leave a little something for each of them anonymously.  Do you like to do surprises for people?  Do you have any recommendations for my gift bags?  I will return tomorrow to share my thoughts on Life and Love at Mulberry Lane by Rosie Clarke.  It is the latest novel in The Mulberry Lane series.  I hope that you have a special day.  Take care and Happy Reading!

Four Leaf Cleaver by Maddie Day

 Four Leaf Cleaver

Book Summary

The eleventh installment in Maddie Day’s deliciously popular Country Store cozy mysteries . . . It’s Saint Patrick’s Day in  South Lick, Indiana, but a holiday cooking competition at Robbie Jordan’s country store and restaurant Pans ’N Pancakes is put on the back-burner when a killer strikes.
 
There’s no mistaking Saint Patrick’s Day at Pans ’N Pancakes. Robbie may only be Irish by marriage to Abe O’Neill, but the shelves of vintage cookware in her southern Indiana store are draped with glittery shamrocks and Kelly-green garlands and her restaurant is serving shepherd’s pie and Guinness Beer brownies. The big event, however, is a televised cooking competition to be filmed on site.
 
Unfortunately, someone’s luck has run out. Before the cameras start rolling, tough-as-nails producer Tara O’Hara Moore is found upstairs in her B&B room, bludgeoned apparently by the heavy hilt of a cleaver left by her side. Now, not only does Robbie have a store full of festive decorations, she’s got a store full of suspects . . .
 
Includes Recipes for You to Try!
My Thoughts

Robbie Jordan has agreed to let producer Tara O’Hara Moore host her cooking competition show at Pans ‘N Pancakes.  It is St. Patrick’s Day which has the restaurant decked out in green shamrocks.  The crew is ready to begin filming, but Tara has failed to arrive.  Robbie goes upstairs to check on Tara with Buck and they find the producer dead in her room.  Tara was murdered and Robbie has a restaurant full of suspects. 

Four Leaf Clover by Maddie Day is the eleventh A Country Store Mystery.  It can be read as a standalone for those new to the series.  I like Maddie Day’s writing style.  It is casual (like a group of friends chatting) which makes her stories easy to read.  Robbie Jordan is enjoying married life.  She loves her husband, Abe and her stepson, Sean.  Several women in Robbie’s circle announce they are pregnant.  Robbie is happy for her friends, but she is sad as well.  Robbie and Abe have been trying to get pregnant without success.   The mystery was appealing.  I knew who committed the crime, but I did not know why until later in the story.  I like how the cleaver worked into the mystery.  There were several suspects because the victim was not liked.  Robbie asks questions and observes.  She shares her insights with Lt. Buck Bird and the detective on the case. Buck gets some good news.  He has come a long way since the first investigation.  I enjoyed the side story lines.  It was great to catch up with the characters.  The ending will leave fans of the series smiling.  The food cooked in Pans ‘N Pancakes and during the contest will have your mouthwatering.  I agree with the patrons that the asparagus omelet should not be repeated.  Four Leaf Clover is an appetizing tale with a cooking competition, a cleaver as a clue, a surplus of suspects, a dour detective, a profusion of pregnancies, tasty repasts, and an awful asparagus omelet.  

Four Leaf Cleaver is available from Amazon*.  You can find the other A Country Store Mysteries here.  Check out Maddie Day's other books here.  Maddie Day is the nom de plume for Edith Maxwell.  Thank you for stopping by today.  January is over already.  The month went by swiftly for me.  I have been busy working on sorting and organizing.  Storage space is limited in our home.  If we do not need it or use it, out it goes (sentimental items are the exception).  I will return tomorrow with Love Through the Seasons by Tracie Peterson.   I hope that you have a joyful day.  Take care and Happy Reading!

Her Amish Adversary by Vannetta Chapman

 Her Amish Adversary
Book Summary

Joining forces with her rival…

Means risking everything.  

Running the RV park at her father’s Amish market makes Bethany Yoder happy—until he hires her childhood nemesis, Aaron King. Soon Bethany’s quaint ideas clash with Aaron’s 
Englisch-style upgrades. But they must work together to turn a profit…or else. When their unlikely alliance turns into something more, will Aaron’s secrets break them—and the business—apart forever?
My Thoughts

Her Amish Adversary by Vannetta Chapman is an entertaining story.  It is the second book in the Indiana Amish Market series.  It can be read as a standalone, but you will be missing out on a cute story (An Amish Proposal for Christmas).   I like Vannetta Chapman’s writing style.  Her stories draw me right in.  There is humor throughout.  I laughed often while reading this book.  The Yoder girls are delightful.  I cannot wait for Eunice’s story (I bet it will be a hoot).  Eunice comes up with some creative mechanical devices.  Bethany Yoder and Aaron King were at odds especially in the beginning (I had to laugh when he tracked mud into her office).  

Bethany is not happy to see Aaron.  He teased her relentlessly at school (I know how Bethany felt).  The teaser might enjoy it, but the one being teased does not.  The author addressed the subject of mental illness.  She handled the subject with sensitivity.  We get to see how one family members mental illness affects the whole family.  We return to the Shipshewana Outdoor Market, which is run by Amos Yoder, Bethany’s father.   The focus is on the RV park where Bethany is the RV park manager.  I can imagine spending the whole day at this large market (the food sounds scrumptious).  I like that we get to catch up with Becca Yoder and Gideon Fisher as well as the rest of the Yoder clan.  The ending left me smiling.  I am eager for the next Indiana Amish Market novelHer Amish Adversary is a tender tale with a massive market, a grubby rug, a sensitive secret, wedding planning, an old adversary, and a meeting of the minds.

Her Amish Adversary is available from Amazon* and Harlequin.  The first book in the Indiana Amish Market series is An Amish Proposal for Christmas.  You can find Vannetta Chapman's other novels here.  I am always eager to read Vannetta Chapman's latest novel.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I will return on Tuesday, January 31 with my thoughts on Four Leaf Cleaver by Maddie Day. It is the eleventh A Country Store MysteryI am heading out to our storage shed to clear out the clutter.  I have discovered that I own more ceiling fans than I need.  I only need six (the ceiling fans currently in our home are from the 80s and one light is from the 1970s).  I wonder what else is tucked into the storage shed (I know there are dozens of inflatables).  I hope that you have an enjoyable weekend.  Take care and Happy Reading!

Together for the Twins by Laurel Blount

 Together for the Twin
Book Summary

He opened his home to twin boys

Will he open his heart to their nanny?

Self-made man Ryder Montgomery is the guy with all the answers…until he inherits custody of his out-of-control twin nephews. Nanny Elise Cooper is a lifesaver and even agrees to give him parenting lessons. Soon they’re starting to feel like a real family. But with an end-of-summer expiration date, is it even possible to build a future together?  
My Thoughts

Together for the Twins by Laurel Blount is an entertaining story.  Ruby is slowly finding matches for the foster children that she raised who became part of her boisterous family.  Ryder has done very well for himself in the business world.  He has recently started his own business which demands his full attention.  When he becomes guardian of his sister’s twin boys, Ryder finds himself at a loss.  The four-year-old twins are terrors.  Ruby and the rest of his foster siblings are at their wits end.  Nanny Elise Cooper is an answer to his prayers.  She manages to get the twins in line right away.  Elise can take the job for the summer as long as she is provided separate accommodations.  She has no intention of getting involved with her boss.  As time passes, the foursome begins to feel like a family.  Elise is delighted to be welcomed into Ryder’s large and noisy family.  What happens, though, when Ryder fails to tell Elise about an important phone call?  

I thought it was well-written with realistic characters.  The author created great characters.   Ruby Sawyer is a delight.  The twins were quite a pair.   I laughed often while reading Together for the Twins.  The ending was touching and nicely wrapped up Together for the Twins.  I appreciated the Christian element in the story.  It was not heavy handed or preachy.  I like how the adults were teaching the twins by example.  Together for the Twins is the third book in the Cedar Ridge series.  It can be read as a standalone, but you will be missing out on two diverting tales.  My favorite part of the story is when Ruby showed Elise the memory quilt she was making for Ryder.  It is a touching scene.  Together for the Twins is a charming story with troublesome twins, an inexperienced uncle, a knowledgeable nanny, a merry matchmaker, a lobbed library book, a beneficial fort, and a lively family.

Excerpt

Ryder sat on the edge of Tuck’s twin bed, listening to Elise reading a bedtime story about a frog and a toad. He’d taken over the bedtime routine for the most part, but tonight the twins had talked Elise into participating. She’d agreed, and here they were.

He could have gone downstairs and cracked open his laptop, but he hadn’t. The truth was, he hadn’t wanted to leave. Right now, Ryder couldn’t think of any place in the world he’d rather be.

Outside, a summer storm had blown in, and rain was pattering steadily down. Lightning was flashing in the distance, and thunder rumbled. It was the sort of night that—before he’d come to live with Ruby—had made him hunker down uneasily on his bare mattress—or the back seat of his dad’s Dodge, if they happened to be homeless at the time.

But here, inside in the circle of lamplight, everything was cozy and pleasant.

The boys, freshly scrubbed and in their favorite pajamas, sat up in their beds, stuffed dinosaurs tucked carefully under the sheets, absorbed in the story. Elise read expressively, the light behind her gilding her hair, the pages whispering as she turned them, one by one.

He was thankful she was reading tonight. He wasn’t sure he could have managed it. Right now he felt like that storybook frog was caught right in the middle of his throat.

When he was a kid, not much older than Tuck and Benji, he remembered being too hungry to sleep and slipping out of the singlewide he and his dad were renting. He’d roamed the trailer park on summer evenings while his father was absorbed in whatever ball game he’d bet on that night. Sometimes Ryder had caught glimpses through windows of scenes like this one, families grouped together around tables with plates of food, or kids snug in beds that looked clean and had sheets.

He hadn’t known much about God back then, but he’d known enough to pray that one day he’d have a home like that. One complete with a grown-up who cared, and enough money to stay clean and well-fed. When the foster system had bounced him to Ruby’s house, that prayer had been answered.

Now God had answered again. With Elise’s help, he’d managed to give his nephews just the kind of home he’d dreamed about as a kid. The relief and gratitude filled his heart so full that it barely fit in his chest.

His eyes were drawn back to Elise’s profile, to the way her expression changed depending on what she was reading. He could feel his own expression changing as he watched her.

They hadn’t had a chance to talk yet. But they would. That was coming, and he prayed he could find the right way to tell her what he was feeling.

And he’d better pray, because the odds of him getting this right on his own were low. He wasn’t even sure what these feelings meant, much less how he could communicate that to Elise.

Guilt. Fear. Joy. Gratitude. All those emotions were mixed up together inside of him, rising up like the bubbles in the twins’ bath a little while ago.

But the bubble that popped up the most often—and the biggest one—was hope. That was the one that had his stomach churning, and it had been ever since he’d kissed her.

That kiss marked either the end of something or a brand-new beginning. He couldn’t be sure which until he and Elise talked things over, but he knew what he was hoping for.

“And they lived happily ever after,” Elise finished in a soothing voice.

Yes, please, God, Ryder prayed silently. That.

Together for the Twins is available from Amazon*.  You can find Laurel Blount's other novels here.  Readers can follow Laurel Blount on Amazon and you will receive an email when she releases a new book.  Laurel Blount has Courage in the Storm coming out April 25.  It is the third A Johns Mill Amish Romance.  Here are a few books that were published this week:  Her Amish Adversary by Vannetta Chapman, Irish Coffee Murder by Leslie Meier, Lee Hollis, and Barbara Ross, Rachael's Decision by Molly Jebber, and The Amish Bachelor's Bride by Pamela Desmond Wright.  I will return tomorrow with Her Amish Adversary by Vannetta Chapman.  It is the second book in the Indiana Amish Market series.  Thank you for stopping by today.    Take care and Happy Reading!

About the Author

Pamela Desmond Wright

Pamela Desmond Wright grew up in a small, dusty Texas town. Like the Amish, Pamela is a fan of the simple life. Her childhood includes memories of the olden days; old-fashioned oil lamps, cooking over an authentic wood-burning stove and making popcorn over a crackling fire at her grandparents' cabin. The cabin was later donated to The Muleshoe Heritage Center in Muleshoe Texas where it can be viewed by the public.

My Thoughts

The Amish Bachelor’s Bride by Pamela Desmond Wright is a sweet story.  I was immediately drawn into the book.  I was curious to see how Noem and Lavinia’s story would play out.  Noem is going to raise his young niece and infant nephew after the death of his younger sister.  Lavinia is a widow with a young daughter to raise.  Lavinia discovered her husband had a surprising secret which has forced her to sell her home.  Bishop James Grabor suggests that Lavinia and Noem marry for convenience.  Noem and Lavinia need to find a way to work together for the sake of the children.  Matters are further complicated by Noem’s grumpy father, Gabriel.  Gabriel has not been the same since his wife died.  

I thought The Amish Bachelor’s Bride was well-written with engaging characters.  I enjoyed Lavinia’s large, friendly family.  Noem has been interested in Lavinia when they were teens on their rumspringa.  Unfortunately, by the time Noem worked up the courage to ask Lavinia out, she was stepping out with her future husband, Josiah.  The Amish Bachelor’s Bride is a story about forgiveness, family, love, and faith.  I appreciated the epilogue which nicely wrapped up the story.  I enjoyed the humor scattered throughout.  It was nice to catch up with Abram Mueller, Lavinia’s brother, and his wife, Maddie from Finding Her Amish Home.  I hope we get more stories about the Mueller clan.  The Amish Bachelor’s Bride is a touching tale with a benevolent bishop, a peevish father, an unforeseen secret, a shunned sister, and a lively family.

Excerpt

Lifting the blinds of the kitchen window, Lavinia Simmons gazed over the fenced-in yard. A glance told her the day was going to be dim. A brisk wind flicked at the trees. The threat of a storm hung in the air.

She searched for a bit of cheer. April showers bring May flowers.

Looking outside, she couldn’t help but think of her ehmann. The first stirrings of spring used to be Josiah’s favorite time of the year. He’d worked hard to landscape the acreage surrounding the home he’d built with his own hands. The whitewashed house nestled amid lovingly planted gardens, where a variety of plants grew in lush abundance. After a long, frosty winter, the eager buds were beginning to raise their sleepy heads. Soon, they would burst into an array of colorful blossoms.

Spring was a renewal, a resurrection. Not only of the spirit but also of hope. Just as the Heavenly Father promised.

But this year Josiah wouldn’t celebrate the coming of the new season. His eyes were forever closed, and his soul rested in the hands of the Lord. The accident that had almost taken his young nephew’s life had taken Josiah’s instead. Though the youngie was warned to stay away from the frozen pond, Eli had wandered onto the ice. Weak and not yet frozen solid, the fragile surface had given way, plunging the kinder into freezing water. Chopping wood nearby, Josiah heard Eli’s cries and rushed to help. He’d gotten the boi out safely, but not before taking on a chill. Rushed to the hospital, he’d died a few hours later of respiratory system failure brought on by hypothermia. His death was sudden and unexpected.

j

Vision blurring, she pressed a hand to her mouth to stifle a sob. Josiah had passed last November, just before the holidays. Healthy and in the prime of life, he should have had a bright future.

But Gott had other plans.

“Lavinia?” Her bruder’s voice interrupted her thoughts. “Did you hear a word I’ve said?”

Swiping at her eyes, Lavinia turned away from the window. “Forgive me. My mind wandered. Give me a minute and I’ll have some tea ready.”

Peering over the rim of his glasses, Abram Mueller offered a smile. “Take your time. I’m still going over the paperwork that will close the mortgage and get everything out of Josiah’s name.”

“I’m sorry you’re having to help me.” Flipping on the tap, Lavinia filled a kettle with water before setting it on the stove. After adding loose tea leaves to a metal ball, she dropped it inside to steep. Stomach going tight, her hands shook. “I’m still shocked to find out he mortgaged our home without my knowledge.”

Setting out her best china, she filled two delicate cups with the tarry brew. The scent of bergamot tickled her nostrils as steam rose. A hot cup of Earl Grey would be just the thing to set her right. Having added a pitcher of fresh cream and a bowl of sugar to a tray, she carried everything to the table.

Expression serious, Abram scribbled a few figures. “The property should have been in both of your names. Then he couldn’t have gambled away the roof over your head.”

Lavinia sat, smoothing her hands across her lap. “I wish it was all a bad dream.” After his death, she’d discovered Josiah had kept a lot of secrets. Her perfect ehmann was a deeply flawed man.

Abram shook his head. “There would have come a point when he had to tell you he couldn’t make the payments anymore.”

She blinked. Barely five months had gone by since Josiah died. In that brief time, her life had fallen completely apart.
