17 Sep

51RRYxJ7bBL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_From merry old England to the wilds of Texas, take a delightful journey into adventure and romance alongside a feisty spinster, an English lord, a trail boss, a determined widow, and an unusual train companion — a parrot.

The Gentleman’s Quest by USA Today bestselling author Camille Elliot. When a man’s body is found in the stables of Heathcliffe Manor, all evidence points to Christopher Creager as the culprit. The only one who can help him is the woman he hasn’t let himself go near: Honoria Dunbar. But when he enlists her help he discovers Honoria is facing a life-sentence of her own . . .

The Road Home by Winnie Griggs. Anisha’s life is just beginning, and Wyatt feels like his is over. How can a displaced, exotic beauty and former surgeon help two grieving orphans find a forever home?

The Trail Boss’s Bride by New York Times bestselling author Erica Vetsch. Trail boss Steve Ketchum hates river crossings, but before he can get his cattle started across he’s got to move an abandoned wagon out of the ford. He goes to haul it away–and discovers the last thing he ever expected. The wagon contains a newly-minted widow — and she’s expecting, too.

My Impressions:

Whether you like your romance with a Regency flourish, a small town flavor or a Wild West feel, the 3-novella historical offering, Journeys of The Heart, will fit your requirements. All three stories, The Gentleman’s Quest, The Road Home and The Trail Boss’s Bride, involve journeys — by carriage, train and chuck wagon! They also involve interesting elements — a treasure map, a talking parrot and a baby born on a wagon trail — and engaging characters. All are quick reads with happily-ever-afters, although the paths to get there contain a few bumps and detours. The characters learn to rely on God as they pursue true love. Perfect for when you need a little romantic fix, each novella is a standalone. I enjoyed this book, and if you are a fan of romance with an historical setting, I am betting you will too.

Recommended.
