About this Book
About the Author
Miralee and her husband Allen have been married almost 40 yrs. They live on 11 acres in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in southern Washington State, where they love to garden, play with their dogs, take walks, and go sailing. Miralee also rides her horse on the wooded trails near their home with her grown daughter who lives nearby. Sheâ€™s an avid reader and has a large collection of first edition Zane Grey books, which inspired her desire to write fiction set in the Old West. When she started writing fiction Miralee believed that sheâ€™d always stay with womenâ€™s contemporary, but has since branched out to historical romance. Her first two books were womenâ€™s contemporary with Kregel Publications,Â The Other Daughter, andÂ Finding Jeena.
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.
