Even Better than the First-Wishing on Buttercups – Miralee Ferrell

About this Book

Can Love Survive When Secrets Collide?
She’d kept her secrets safely hidden—those from her past, and those in the present. Some things, Beth Roberts knows, a lady simply doesn’t share, even in the 1880’s West. The townspeople would never understand. No one ever has.
Jeffery Tucker, a handsome young writer, has kept his own secrets. He doesn’t have a right to pry into Beth’s affairs but finds himself strangely drawn to her and intrigued by the whiff of mystery surrounding her.
Beth knows that one day someone will unravel the threads of her past. And when two men from her past arrive, the truth might just hurt . . . Beth’s future and her heart.
As shadowy memories surface, Beth sketches the scenes she sees and is shocked by what—and who—her illustrations reveal. Dare she risk her heart again?

My Review

The second book in the Love Blossoms in Oregon Series is even better than the first. We are still in Baker City at the boarding house. The focus of this story is Beth Roberts and Jeffrey Tucker as we have the opportunity to learn the secrets that were evident in book one. Although, the focus of this story is Beth and Jeffrey, we get to enjoy the characters from the first book, especially the developing relationship and a few sparks between Frances and Wilma.

The story was delightful as Beth and Jeffrey work through their past fears and hurts as well as what it means to trust God and have a relationship with Him. The secondary story featuring Wilma Roberts was especially touching. The only part of the story that didn’t really work for me was the character, Lansing. I was never 100% sure why the author included him and his storyline. Otherwise, this was a wonderful story, that was touching and a joy to read. I look forward to the next installment in this series.

Although, this is a book two in a series, it can stand alone and you can read it and not feel lost.

Disclaimer: I did receive this book from the publisher through Netgalley.com, however, I was under no obligation other than to give my honest option.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

One thought on “Even Better than the First-Wishing on Buttercups – Miralee Ferrell”

  1. Thank you so much for the lovely review. I’m thrilled you enjoyed my newest book! I’m just getting the word out now, that there will be at least two more books in this series. Dreaming on Daisies releases next fall, but there will be a novella in mid to late March that tells Pastor Seth’s story. It will only be available on Amazon Kindle and paperback to start. I hope you’ll have a chance to read and review it, as well as Dreaming on Daisies.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
