Happy 4th of July!
What are you currently reading?
I just started reading Cactus Rose on Sunday afternoon. I left this morning for my cruise, so with all the preparations and packing I did not get too far into the book, but I am looking forward to it! The cover makes me think of a desert romance, which is just perfect for a hot, dry Texas summer.
Rosie Saladay needs to get married—fast. The young widow needs help to protect her late husband’s ranch, but no decent woman can live alone with a hired hand. With the wealthy Wesley Morris making a play for her land, Rosie needs a husband or she risks losing everything. So she hangs a sign at the local saloon: “Husband wanted. Apply inside. No conjugal rights.”
Delmar Grant is a sucker for a damsel in distress, and even with Rosie’s restrictions on “boots under her bed” stated firmly in black and white, something about the lovely widow’s plea leaves him unable to turn away her proposal of marriage.
Though neither planned on falling in love, passion ignites between the unlikely couple. But their buried secrets—and enemies with both greed and a grudge—threaten to tear them apart. They’ll discover this marriage of convenience may cost them more than they could have ever bargained for.
What did you just finish reading?
I finished Unmasking Juliet, finally! I attacked the book with a vengeance to get back to reading, and I was pleasantly surprised with what happened next! The writing is artfully crafted. I loved the scene in the sunflower garden. A family feuding chocolate world that grounds to a halt over a contract with a major distributor and chocolate contests.
I can’t wait to see which classic Wilson turns into a retelling next. She is so good at it!
What do you think you’ll read next?
I think I am going to stick to the original plan and read Help Yourself next. It will be a good change of setting from ranch life in Cactus Rose. Set on the Atlantic coast, the main character must complete a series of life-improving tasks to earn her windfall inheritance while her crudgy uncle wants to steal it from her. Go read the Goodreads description. This will prove to be hysterically humorous, I just know it.
