Summer is the perfect time for romance and nobody does romance quite like Lisa Kleypas. I’m giving this book from the Travis’ of Texas series a backlist bump. Horrid mothers, wounded sisters, an abandoned babe, and a smoking hot Texan make for a quick read.
When Amelia is mistakenly given her late sister Clara’s letter to open at the beginning of the school year, she is filled with turmoil. She decides to reach the goals Clara had set for herself. But Amelia and Clara were always very different. This little book is a great insight into how grief ostracizes people from each other at the time they need each other the most.
Calpurnia Tate is a feisty young girl determined to take care of her father’s hunting dog in this quick little tale. Unfortunately, this particular dog can’t seem to get it through his head that porcupines are not his friend. Set in the early 1900s, this is a fun historical fiction. The vocabulary is easy and the story is imaginative.
Life was good until the cat moved in next door. Isn’t that just the way it always works? A beautifully illustrated book for young readers, “Plenty of Love to go Around” shows exactly how the cat manages to find his way into this cantankerous dog’s heart.
