I really need a new title for these review/current read/TBR posts. I'm laughing at my extremely long and rather boring moniker for this post and thinking of how readers will view it. I've included a poll at the end of this post with a few options for the Wednesday post titles. I'd love to get your input.
On with the reviews!
Historical Romance Book Review: Cheyenne Surise by Janalyn Voigt
Cheyenne Sunrise by Janalyn Voigt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It kept me wondering...
I truly enjoyed this book. There seemed to be a few issues with formatting and typos, but I was able to continue without stopping. One of the things I didn't like was the persistent hot and cold of the hero and heroine. Yes, it needed to be that way for a while, but I was as relieved as they were when the happy ending finally arrived. □
I was totally invested in the characters and enthralled with the plot. The way some of the characters lived the faith they professed was refreshing. And the growth of the characters throughout the story was interesting.
If you like frontier romance that is clean and inspirational, you'll enjoy this book I think.

Historical Romance Book Review: Quinn (The Scottish Outlaws #2) by Lily Baldwin
Quinn by Lily Baldwin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Promising storyline, but...
There were lots of glaring typos. Missing words here and there and the wrong word used a couple of times just made me sigh in disappointment. The plot was enjoyable but I won't read more in this series. However, if you love a good damsel in distress story with a strong, determined heroine, you might enjoy this book.

Because this review is so very short, I wanted to add something. In my experience, it is possible to be a strong woman who happens to be in distress at a particular moment in time. Strength isn't dependent upon your circumstances (which cause the distress), but rather dependent upon your reaction to them.
Another thing I've always hated is when a cover doesn't seem to match the content of a book. If this is the story I think it is, the man hardly ever takes off his shirt and this cover makes it seem as if he romps all through the novel that way. Cover art...it's important...
The author has a website but it's more like an author bio page. I went ahead and linked to it, though. Her bio is interesting as is her inspiration for becoming an author.
#CurrentlyReading: McCutcheon Family Series Box Set, Books 4 -6 by Caroline Fyffe
I started this set and I'm taking it slow. I really enjoyed book one but book two has confused me. Too much backstory and too many characters involved for this to be your average historical romance novel. This makes it not the easiest of books to read. If I can get past the second book, I think it'll be smooth sailing from there. This set contains Heather, Moon Over Montana, and Kathryn.

#TBR: What I'm Adding to My Shelves - Echoes of the Gidat: The Genesis Chronicles Book 1 by Eme' Savage
I've linked the author's name to her IG page as I can't find any other website to link to. The photo is linked to the Goodreads page for this book.
I chose to add this to my shelf because I'm trying to read more books by indie author's like me. Echoes of the Gidat is getting some pretty rave reviews so I can't wait to dig in and see for myself!
