I've never mentioned it, I don't think, but I get a lot of free books through Bookbub emails. I get more than I can actually read within any kind of foreseeable time frame. *wry laugh* But I'm making a valiant effort. This week's book review is an Inspirational Romance by Miralee Ferrell. Read on to check out my review.
"Blowing on Dandelions" by Miralee Ferrell
Blowing on Dandelions by Miralee Ferrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Blowing on Dandelions" interested me because both the hero and heroine had lost their spouses unexpectedly. Each had monumental hurdles to overcome in their own lives which were compounded by new conflicts that kept popping up. Kudos to Miralee Ferrell for keeping me guessing on how each of those would play out in the end. :)
Another positive sell for me was the focus on proper etiquette between males and females and how the characters dealt with those boundaries in their own ways. I know many romance readers would scoff at the heroine's manners and her desire to stay within the bounds of her own moral system. To me, that shows a strength of character I admire. There are times to throw caution to the wind and this woman seemed to know the proper times to do so. She also recognized her weaknesses and failures and wasn't afraid to own up to them with her daughter, another point in her favor.
I gave it four stars because I don't think this is one I'd go back to again and again. Otherwise, I thought it was good. This is a clean, inspirational romance and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading that sort of book. I'd also recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romance and western romance, though the hero in this one is a blacksmith, not a cowboy. Why not give it a try?

I'm happy this is one of my longer reviews. I waited a while to write it so I guess I had time to think over my opinion of the content. I hope you'll give this one a try if it's a genre you generally like or if you've been thinking of trying something new.

June Writing Challenges Wrap-Up

(Here's the rest of day 30.) Where the land lacks color, the inhabitants make up for it in their brightly hued skin. They are unique among the clans in their monochromatic coloring. A clan on the brink of civil war, Genzet is divided into two factions. The Drositiri live mostly in the southern areas of Genzet and above ground in stone homes. The Tanderali live under whichever mountains offer the most sure safety. Trade exists between the two factions but it's tricky. In general, the people of Genzet will trade with the other clans but they are somewhat aloof believing themselves to be too different for the other clans to understand. Tradition, both religious and societal, are extremely important to the Genzettin people. They are masters of metals, ores, and gems. Of all the clans, they seem to be the most technologically advanced so far. I could say more but I think I'll save it for the book.
