About the Book

Whenever I close my eyes and think of my mother, I see her red toenails. Her perfectly manicured toes flaunting her signature nail-polish color, Oh My, Cherry Pie.

I’m super loving this novel. It is so good!

If you have not started the Haven Makers series, I highly recommend reading book 1, Becoming Us. You will definitely want to read this one so you are ready for Being Known.

  2. I have loved this series! The Christy Miller books were my favorites when I was growing up, and I’m so glad Robin Jones Gunn is still writing about her πŸ™‚

    Today on my blog I’m featuring The Traitor’s Pawn by Lisa Harris. Right now I’m reading Just the Way You Are by Pepper Basham, so I’ll share the first line here: “One step into the massive, glass-walled waiting area was all it took.”

    Have a great weekend! Happy reading! πŸ™‚

      Thank you for sharing today. I hope you’re enjoying your book. Happy reading!

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Collateral Damage” by Lynette Eason:

    “Sergeant First Class Asher James stared at Captain Phillip Newell, sure that he’d heard wrong.”

  4. Happy Friday!

    This book sounds amazing! I’ve loved every Robin Jones Gunn book I’ve ever read, and am definitely going to have to pick this one up soon.

    On my blog this week, I’m sharing the first line from The Number of Love by Roseanna M White:

    “The numbers marched across the page in a glory all their own.”

    Hope you have a lovely weekend πŸ™‚

  5. On my blog, I’m sharing Lady at Arms by Tamara Leigh. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter 21 of my current read, Kisses in Keystone by Kari Trumbo. β€œHugh pulled his hat low to keep the sun off and shrugged on his black coat. The badge Bullock given him was buried in the bottom of his shaving kit. He hadn’t looked at it in a week.” I wish you a healthy and enjoyable weekend!

  6. Have you read the Glenbrooke series by Robin Jones Gunn? That is my all-time FAVORITE series!! I’m currently reading Sweet As Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand and the first line is β€œDan Kanagy stopped his open-air buggy in the middle of the deserted road and turned on his flashlight.” I hope you have a nice weekend!

  7. My first line comes from Becky Wade’s Stay With Me — Like Papa Bear in the Goldilocks story, Sam Turner had discovered a strange woman sleeping in the bed of a home he owned.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. I think this character and I had very different mothers, because while my mother’s signature nail polish color was also bright red, she called it “hooker red.” xD It was apparently an inside joke between her and her best friend lol. Glad to see you’re enjoying this book!
