“Rose House” by Tina Anne Forkner was a really great read. I always enjoy a good fiction love story, especially one that’s shrouded in a little mystery! Lillian Diamon is grieving over the tragic loss of her husband and two young children. A private moment at she looks at the Rose House is captured on canvas and displayed for the world to see. As she searches for the artist of the anonymous painting, her heart begins to heal and open up to a new love. But the accident that left her without her family is shrouded in mystery. It was ruled an accident, but she knows it really wasn’t. She discovers some harsh realities as she is chased by the past and perhaps by someone else!
I am in the middle of reading “The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper” by Kathleen Y’Barbo. I love stories based back when the west was still wild! So far the book has been really good, but since I’m not completely through yet, here’s the summary on it:
The future is clearly mapped out for New York socialite Eugenia “Gennie” Cooper, but she secretly longs to slip into the boots of her favorite dime-novel heroine and experience just one adventure before settling down. When the opportunity arises, Gennie jumps at the chance to experience the Wild West, but her plans go awry when she is drawn into the lives of silver baron Daniel Beck and his daughter and finds herself caring for them more than is prudent–especially as she’s supposed to go back to New York and marry another man.
As Gennie adapts to the rough-and-tumble world of 1880s Colorado , she must decide whether her future lies with the enigmatic Daniel Beck or back home with the life planned for her since birth. The question is whether Daniel’s past–and disgruntled miners bent on revenge–will take that choice away from her.
