My Review: 

Let Love Spring: A Historical Spring Collection is a collection of three novellas written by three amazing authors. I absolutely loved this book, each story is written to leave you wanting more. The theme of each story seems to be Love and Forgiveness.

An Angel for the Cowboy: Essie Love is about to loose her home and is prepared to do whatever she can to save her home and provide for her sisters. Jud Steele is wanted for a crime he didn’t commit. He is wounded and finds himself on the doorstep of Essie. As she nurses him back to health, Jud realizes what he needs his  a home and a family.

Spring Recaptured: What happens when the love of your life comes back into your life after disappearing for six years? Ren Klinghoffer can’t believe who he just seen, the only girl he has ever loved is back but its not the same, she has a child.

Andrea Vandermere Radcliff returns to Springdale to stay with her aunt. She is has a secret that could bring harm to her family and she doesn’t want to face the man whom she loved so many years ago. Can Andrea and Ren put aside the anger and learn to forgive or will it destroy them both? Can their love spring up again?

A Love Not Forgotten: Allison White is getting married but there is one problem, she is not thrilled and still loves her fiancé, Chaz. Charles “Chaz” Powell was shot down over enemy territory, even though the war is over its still raging for him. As a result of the crash, Chaz has amnesia and the only thing he has that can bring any clue to his identity is a love letter without a return address. Will Chaz regain his memory in enough time to be with Allison or will he have to forge a new life?

Overall, this is a great collection of novellas. Released at the right time.

I received a copy of this book for free. A Favorable review was not required, these opinions expressed are my own.

About the Book

Book: Let Love Spring

Author: Jodie Wolfe, Sandy Faye Mauck, & Linda Shenton Matchett

Genre: Historical Romance

Release Date: March 30, 2017

An Angel for the Cowboy

When the bank threatens foreclosure on Essie Love’s home, it’s up to her to provide for her sisters. She’ll do whatever it takes to save them, even if it means marrying a stranger.

Jud Steele is wanted for a crime he didn’t commit. Wounded and left for dead, he lands on Essie’s doorstep. While she nurses him back to health, he finds himself longing for a home and family.

Can two desperate people find a path that leads to what they both need?

Spring Recaptured

The seed that falls in the dead of winter sometimes becomes the seed of life that rises in spring.

Late winter’s chill heats up quickly when Ren Klinghoffer sees the only girl he’s ever loved coming back into town after disappearing one dark night six years ago. The rumors of her being widowed and having a child appear to be true.

Andrea Vandermere Radcliff nervously returns to Springdale to stay with her aunt, afraid of only two things—keeping the secret that could harm her family and facing the beloved man she was stolen from.

Anger and unforgiveness plague the once betrothed couple. Will their broken hearts mend enough to bring them to the place of God’s peace and hope? Or will the sins of others permanently destroy the love that once bloomed in the spring of their lives?

A Love Not Forgotten

Allison White should be thrilled about her upcoming wedding. The problem? She’s still in love with her fiancé, Chaz, who was declared dead after being shot down over Germany in 1944. Can she put the past behind her and settle down to married life with the kindhearted man who loves her?

It’s been two years since Charles “Chaz” Powell was shot down over enemy territory. The war is officially over, but not for him. He has amnesia as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, and the only clue to his identity is a love letter with no return address. Will he ever regain his memories and discover who he is, or will he have to forge a new life with no connections to the past?

Love In The Seams Blog Tour and Giveaway

My Review:

Love in the Seams is book two in Jodie Wolfe’s Twin and Needles Series. Historical Romance that you are going to enjoy reading. Even though it is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. This is the first book by this author that I have read and I truly enjoyed her work.

Mae Stafford longs for the love and companionship that her sister has found, but she has refused potential suitors all because of a pact that was made when she was a child. She has given up that God will give her this type of love, so she drowns herself in her job as a seamstress. Johannes Mueller made a promise to his late wife to move to the west to become a school teacher. He is counting on his five-year-old daughter to find a new mother. LillyAnn finds the seamstress and is determined to bring Mae and her father together.

Beautifully written story of love, patience, and trust. I love Jodie’s writing style and how she embraces God in her novel. This is definitely a must read and I can’t wait to go back and read book one, Hearts Tightly Knit.

I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required of me. All opinions expressed are my own.

About the Book

cover-1b-188x300

Mae Stafford longs for the companionship and unconditional love her sister has found in her new husband. But after years of refusing potential suitors because of a pact they made as children, Mae no longer has any choices left once their agreement is broken. She has no hope that God will give her what she desires most, a family of her own. Instead of dwelling on what she doesn’t have, she throws herself into her work as the recent sole owner of the local dress shop.

As a promise made to his late wife, Johannes Mueller agrees to travel west to be a school teacher in Calder Springs, Texas, away from the bigotry associated with being an immigrant in New York City. He hopes to improve his life and forget his loss. Johannes isn’t counting on his five-year-old daughter’s search for a new mother when they arrive. His little LillyAnn finds ways to bring the seamstress and him together…often. Can he learn to embrace his German heritage and unlock his heart to love again?

Guest Post from Jodie Wolfe

I’m so excited to be a part of a Celebrate Lit tour. Thank you for the opportunity to give a small peek into my world. J Love in the Seams is book two in my Twins & Needles series. Mae Stafford’s journey to believe and have hope that God will give her the desires of her heart echo the ups and downs of my writing adventure.

I wrote my first novel as a teen quite a number of years ago. Ahem. We won’t say how many years that have passed since then. J Let’s just say it’s quite a few. My next novel didn’t get written until my early twenties…and then soon after I had children. Fiction writing took a back seat as I raised my sons and home schooled them all the way through high school.

Over seven years ago I felt God nudging me back to writing. I still had a son at home, so the progress was a little slow at first. Since then I’ve written four novels, three novellas, and have pitched a half dozen other ideas at various conferences or through my amazing agent.

God dropped my agent, Linda S. Glaz of Hartline Literary Agency, into my lap when I least expected it, but that’s a different story. I’ve had quite a number of rejections over the past few years as she’s tried to drum up interest for my books. We’ve had some nibbles and times when an editor or two was interested, but things didn’t progress any further than that.

I’ve entered contests and have experienced mixed results. I semi-finaled in American Christian Fiction Writer’s Genesis contest a few years ago, and this past summer I found out I’m a finalist in three different contests. But there also have been quite a few where the responses weren’t so great.

Earlier this year I decided to put out a novella independently and Hearts Tightly Knit was the result. It told the tale of Mae’s twin sister, Ellie, and their pact to always stay together and never marry. When Ellie ended up with her happily-ever-after, I knew that Mae needed one too. The only thing is Mae isn’t sure if her hopes for a family will ever come to fruition.

Highs and lows are part of a writer’s life. Well, actually for all of us. J Sometimes it’s easy to get bogged down in the negatives, the ‘rejections’ and not be able to see past them. Believe me, at times I wallow there for a little bit, but my aim is to write books that share about the hope we have in Christ. How can I convey that if I don’t believe and experience it myself?

One of my favorite verses is Hebrews 11:1 (HCSB) which says, “Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.” One of the things I have hoped for many years was a writing contract. That finally happened in September when I signed for a novelette with Celebrate Lit that will be coming out in the spring. In the process of waiting, I’ve found God has refined and honed me in this journey of hope.

My prayer is that my books will touch your heart and give you a glimmer of the hope we have in Christ. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity into your world.
