Mail-Order Mother 

Recently widowed and pregnant, Millie Steele needs a husband to help provide for her unborn child, and becoming a mail-order bride is her only option. Thankfully, her new husband, Kansas farmer Adam Beale, only wants a mother for his two young children—not romance. Everything is going according to plan…until Millie begins to fall for Adam.

Adam had reservations about wedding another city dweller—his late wife never took to life on the prairie. But now he can’t imagine his family being complete without Millie and her unborn baby. Though they agreed to a strictly platonic partnership, can real love be blooming in Adam and Millie’s marriage of convenience?

For the Love of Fairy Tales

Our daughter, Adriana, was born in 1991, the year Disney released its animated version of Beauty and the Beast. The movie has long been one of her favorites, so when Disney announced the new version, she was quite excited and put it on her must-see list.

We watched the movie this past week as a family and really enjoyed it. The best part, though, was leaving the theater and finding the cast of the Beauty and the Beast play at our teacher daughter’s high school out front advertising their upcoming production.

Adriana, the French teacher, volunteered to coach the actors in their French pronunciation and has had a fun time doing so. They were excited to see her, and she was thrilled to see them. Several of those talented young people were willing to pose with a not-so-young fan who will going to see their show this coming week.

Look-Alike Lawman 

Former lawman Zane Robinson never thought he’d wear a badge again—but to locate his missing twin brother, Zane’s taking on his identity as sheriff of Proud Bend, Colorado. There he discovers heiress Rachel Smith conducting her own search for a mother and child who’ve also disappeared from the small town. The cases could be connected, so Zane reluctantly agrees to team up with the feisty beauty.

Rachel can’t afford to be seen getting too close to Zane—it could impact her ministry for misguided young women. But as the investigation continues, she’s hopelessly drawn to the gruff yet honorable lawman. Though trust doesn’t come easily to Rachel or Zane, in searching for the missing will they risk losing their hearts?

Strawberry Season

Spring comes early in the fertile valley of California, which means we’re already seeing great deals on luscious red strawberries in our supermarkets. I brought home a big box today.

On the way out of the store, a gentleman told my husband about a vinegar and water rinse that is supposed to prolong the life of the berries. I took his advice, dunked the beauties and took of picture of them sunning themselves afterward.

I don’t know if the man’s tip will pay off or not, due to the rate at which I’m eating the strawberries. I prefer them at the peak of their ripeness, when I sink my teeth into them and savor their natural sweetness. Yum!

💜💜💜

Question for You

What is your favorite way to eat strawberries?

Rocky Mountain Proposal 

After two years, Tolley Northam returns home, transformed from a mischievous youth into an ambitious lawyer confident of winning his father’s approval at last. But he soon begins to wonder if the only way to do so is to marry family friend Laurie Eberly—a woman his father has always liked. If only she weren’t so adamant about refusing Tolley’s proposal…

Laurie’s childhood friend is now a handsome, accomplished lawyer with undeniable charm. But she can’t accept Tolley’s proposal; she believes it’s just to earn his father’s praise. First he’ll have to prove to her that he wants her for a wife not because his father thinks she’s the perfect match, but because he does.
