Blog Tour w/Review - Gold Rush


Gold Rush
Jennifer Comeaux
Publication date: January 9th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Liza Petrov’s entire life has been about skating and winning her sport’s top prize – Olympic gold. She’s stayed sheltered inside her bubble, not daring to stray from her destined path.
Until she meets Braden Patrick.
He makes her heart flutter with possibility, and for the first time she gets a taste of a normal teenage life. She longs to have both the boy and the gold, but stepping outside her bubble comes with a price. As Liza begins to question both her future and her past, can she stay focused on the present and realize her ultimate dream?
 
 
 
 
 

Braden & Liza meet at the concession stand over her siblings. The attraction is instant and mutual. Only this is going to be the busiest year of her life. Who has time for love?

Liza has never had a date, a kiss, a boyfriend. Rights of passage have been sacrificed for Olympic Gold. Is it worth it? Maybe this year she can find out how to make them both work out.

An amazing story with feels and emotions. I love, love, loved the skating and technical parts. This is one author I can count on to make it real. Did I mention there are feels? This book has everything for everyone, and a little bit more.

The California Gold Rush Collection (review)
The California Gold Rush Romance Collection: 9 Stories of Finding Treasures Worth More than Gold - Linda Farmer Harris,Jaime Jo Wright,Amanda Barratt,Pam Hillman,Jennifer Rogers Spinola,Anne-Marie Greene,Cynthia Hickey,Angela Bell,Dianne Christner

It is no secret that I love these Bride Collections from Barbour. I pick which ones I want to read based on the theme and, usually, a single author that I already know and enjoy. In this case, it was solely an author that had me requesting an ebook through NetGalley. Having previously enjoyed Angela Bell's contribution to the Lassoed By Marriage Romance Collection, I was excited to see what she would do for the Gold Rush theme and how she would take it to England and add her signature twist with well-researched steam based technology. Her story, The Best Man in Brookside, was definitely a favorite as Irishman Donovan returns to England with his fortune in gold, determined to care for his sister and exact revenge on Sophia, the Englishwoman who blackened his name in the village of Brookside. I especially enjoyed how his accent bled into the third person narrative whenever it was focused on his point of view.

 

As with this story, my two other favorites also took us away from the actual mining. Jamie Joe Wright gives us a wounded soiled dove and a rich man on a mission to transform the ghost town she inhabits. Dianne Christner treats the reader to a rough and tumble Clementine whose father hires the Last Resort Traveling Etiquette School to refine her after a potential suitor’s rejection. The other stories continue to entertain with a variety of settings and characters. Amanda Barratt's story tells of two newspaper editors unwittingly in competition for the same promotion. Anne Greene sets her story of a marriage broker determined not to wed and a mortician in Eureka, California. Linda Farmer Harris features a banker and a fugitive, Cynthia Hickey a newspaperman/artist/preacher and a woman forced to masquerade as a boy, and Jennifer Rogers Spinola adds a bit of diversity with her story of Chinese immigrants. In the one story that actually had me saying “Awww,” Pam Hillman takes us into the wilds of California Territory with a surveyor and a cartographer.

 

Overall, another solid collection from Barbour that is entertaining and a satisfying romance read with nine Happily Ever Afters. Definitely would make my top 10, if not top 5 of the Bride Collections I’ve read so far.

The Gold Seer Trilogy #1...
Walk on Earth a Stranger - Rae Carson,Erin Mallon,HarperAudio

"Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety?"

 

When I saw this series was set during the Gold Rush I knew had to read it. There's something about that era that's very alluring and I think it makes the perfect setting for a fantasy adventure story. Carson delivered everything I was hoping for. I think she captured the essence of the period beautifully. I listened to the audio book and the narrator's performance enhanced the story even more. The sequel, Like a River Glorious, releases tomorrow so I'm glad I don't have to wait very long for it. : )
