  1. Dover, Delaware
    At the convenience store that served as the Greyhound bus station, Joshua held open the door for an Englischer. Dressed in a puffy white coat, the elderly woman stared up at him, her mouth agape, as she walked through the doorway. Maybe she wasn’t used to seeing an Amish man in a 7-Eleven, or maybe it was his Ray-Ban sunglasses that surprised her. He offered a half smile and removed them as he walked into the store.

  2. Cowboy for Keeps is in the mail for me!
    I finally got this book today, I’ve been waiting all month:
    The Dress Shop on King Street by Ashley Clark,
    From the prologue:
    Charleston, South Carolina, 1860
    The candlelight sent a shadow of Rose up against the wooden wall. From the shadow, Rose looked taller. Stronger. Funny thing about shadows. They made even the smallest things into monsters or fairies or whatever folks wanted.
    Happy reading!

  3. On my blog today, I’m sharing The Governess’ Debut by Wendy May Andrews. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter Four. “Felicia had to struggle to keep her attention on Penelope’s lessons.” Merry Christmas!
