    Just looking at the cover says, ‘don’t start reading me in the evening unless you want to be up reading all night!’. 🙂 Goodness, this book sounds fantastic!

      Yes, it does! Don’t let that cover intimidate you though, check out my review, I had the same problem. 😉

    A few of my January favorites were:
    “Another One Bites the Crust” by H. Y. Hanna
    “Grace’s Forgiveness” by Molly Jebber
    “Christmas Roses” by Lenora Worth and others
    And because I was fortunate enough to get an ARC of “Biscuits and Slashed Browns” by Mattie Day I finished off the month with a great read.

    Thanks for the chance to win a copy of “The House on Foster Hill” by Jaime Jo Wright. I’d very much love to read this book.

    I haven’t read any of your January favorites. But I do have a couple of them on my TBR list and I’m more than excited to read them, like Jane of Austin and The House on Foster Hill. Plus, all these book covers are gorgeous.

    I read nine books in January and I’d have to say they were all my favorite….lol!

    I’ll name a few of them: All She Left Behind by Jane Kirkpatrick; Hearts Entwined by Karen Witemeyer, Mary Connealy, Regina Jennings & Melissa Jagears; A Song Unheard by Roseanna White, and My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls New York by Amanda Barratt.

    Thank you for the chance to win The House on Foster Hill, it’s one I really want to read!! 🙂

    I enjoyed Claiming Her Cowboy, A Mother For His Family and Isaiah’s Daughter. Looking forward to reading many of your Jan. picks and I absolutely loved The Hill on Foster Hill!!!

    I finally got to read Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson. It was pretty good! I enjoyed its split timeline, and was interesting to learn about British citizens who were spies for the Germans.

    I read 13 books in January, my top three were The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz, A Song Unheard by Roseanna M. White, and Holding The Fort by Regina Jennings.

    Crossing my fingers for this one because it’s been on my list forever…..love that cover!
    One of my favorite Jan 2017 reads was The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor.

      You brave soul! The cover gives me chills! It’s a great story inside though and that’s what counts!
