BEAUTY FOR ASHES
Love’s amazing historical has all the elements her readers expect from her stories: romance, mystery and characters who want more out of their lives but are struggling to change their situation.
Carrie Daly has finally found love — not weak-in-the-knees love, but with the lack of single men in her town, she is grateful for Nate. Still, something is holding her back from setting a date for the wedding. Griff Rutledge is passing through Hickory Ridge on his way to Australia, but when a local rancher asks him to train a horse for an upcoming race, he stays longer than he expected. Carrie is drawn to Griff, but he believes he is meant to live a single life. (THOMAS NELSON, Mar., 320 pp., $15.99)
