Song of the Highlands by Sharon Gillenwater
After an inheritance makes him the Earl of Branderree, Scottish military piper Kiernan Macpherson finds himself thrust into the unfamiliar, glittering world of Regency England’s aristocracy. His greatest surprise, however, comes when he wins a run-down English estate-with the spirited sister of the previous owner still in residence!
About the author: Bestselling author Sharon Gillenwater writes stories about love–between a man and a woman, of family and home, and the everlasting love of God and Jesus.
She grew up on a ranch in the Rolling Plains of West Texas, near the small town of Colorado City. Marriage took her across the country, but Texas is still dear to her heart.

Boo Hiss by Rene Gutteridge
When a soccer field complex springs to life seemingly overnight in the sleepy community of Skary, Indiana, and the local coffee shop begins offering computer access along with its suddenly overpriced beverages, goosebumps start popping up all over town. Has soccer mom Katelyn Downey hatched a diabolic plot to turn their slow-paced town into a den of hip suburban iniquity–or is this the perfect solution to the community’s financial woes?
Even as concerned residents take sides over their town’s future, many are dealing with changes of a more personal nature. Novelist Wolfe Boone can’t seem to find the right niche for his post—horror writing efforts, and his new bride Ainsley–known for executing complicated events with penache and perfection–is bewildered by her inability to control something as seemingly simple as scheduling a pregnancy. Frustration turns to envy when her wacky friend Melb discovers, to her utter terror, that she and husband Oliver are expecting a baby.
Through its quirky characters and winsome humor, Boo Hiss offers unexpected insights into the various ways people respond to change and demonstrates that growth often occurs amid the most difficult–and hilarious–circumstances.

Good Heavens by Margaret Graham (A Trilogy Book 2)
Esmeralda’s back. Readers met this feisty widow as she fussed over her fellow citizens of a small southern town in Margaret Graham’s novel Mercy Me. Now in a delightful sequel, Esmeralda feels led to take on a new project. A halfway house for female addicts finds itself in need of a responsible woman to move in and help out, and against her better judgment, Esmeralda volunteers. She knows nothing about drugs or about much of anything else these women have been through. But she knows when she’s being “led,” so she packs up her life, moves to the mountains, and becomes a housemother. There she meets women with lives she could never imagine, and she must navigate well outside her comfort zone. Soon enough, she learns how to love the unloved-and to accept their love in return. Good Heavens is packed with hilarity, humanity, and good lessons. Graham once again has given readers a lovable and very human believer to accompany as she plods through alien territory with her Bible in hand.
