I didn't think that this series could get any better, but I was wrong!!! This third book, The Miner's Lady by Tracie Peterson, was a fabulous end to the series and will not disappoint! This book has it all - romance, murder, mystery, family feuds and forbidden love! The Panetta family and Calarco family have been at odds with each other for generations that span back to Italy. They found themselves living in the same town and working in the same mines. The hatred for each other is still there between the fathers of the families, but can it be resolved. When the youngest of each family fall in love with each other, the families become even more at odds with each other. Chantel Panetta (the oldest sister) and Dante Calarco (the oldest brother) find themselves "helping" the forbidden lovers meet with each other, and, as their paths cross more and more, one wonders if there will be more than one forbidden love. Family feuds are not the only problem in the town. There is a gambling issue as well and the Panetta brothers are suspecting that there are other issues going along with it. When more than one family tragedy strikes both families, can it bring the families together? Tracie Peterson does a wonderful job developing her characters and the plot. You really never know where the story is going to go. I would highly recommend this book and this entire series to anyone.
I have been given this book by Bethany House to review, but the ideas are my own!
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a review of it. I was trying to branch out to try new genres not just for me but for my book club. I chose to receive Rules for Murder by Julianna Deering. I was not impressed with this book. I had such a hard time getting into the book. I was easily confused from the very beginning of the book. I had a very hard time keeping up with the characters in the story. I don't know if it was trying to keep up with the whole story plot, the characters or even the British elements in the story. I really was disappointed because I was looking so forward to reading this one. Others of you may have better luck with it! I will not give up on this author though! I will try again!
I received a book from Bethany House to read and then review. I always enjoy their books and The Quarryman's Bride by Tracie Peterson was of NO exception. I really was not expecting the storyline to be like it was. So many Christian authors repeat the same storyline just changing the characters and setting a bit. However, this was so unlike the first book in the series. Immediately your heart went out to Emmalyne, her situation and her whole family. I just could not put the book down as I was kept under the spell of Emmalyne and Tavin's future story, present story and future. Seeing the change that took place in all the characters was so heartwarming and made you realize people can change with God in their lives. I would recommend this book to anyone!
