COYER and my library's Summer Reading Program are now live. I want to continue or finish some of my series reads and get through that one WWI book that is a door stopper. I want to read all the books I borrowed from Prime Lending so I can cancel my subscription over the summer (I just don't feel like the benefits are worth the ever increasing price).

2. One in a Million (Lucky Harbor #12) by Jill Shalvis

3. Wishing Lake (Finding Home #3) by Regina Hart

4. When Summer Comes (Whiskey Creek #3) by Brenda Novak

The Miner's Lady (Land of Shining Water #3) by Tracie Peterson
The Miner's Lady (Land of Shining Water #3) - Tracie Peterson

I have wanted to try a Peterson book for awhile now, but felt really intimidated by her backlist. Seeing this book on my library shelf made the decision for me. I'm glad I chose this one as there was a lot to like in the book.

 

First up, Italian immigrants and their families in a historical romance - thank you! Finally! Seeing immigrants (other than from the UK or Ireland) in historical fiction (much less inspirational historical fiction) and their traditions while also seeing themselves as American was a treat that I take with grateful hands. I felt the immigrants' Catholic religion was downplayed a lot, but inspirational genre frowns upon anything touching Catholism, so I understood that the author had to navigate between the characters and her expected audience.

 

Chantel was a great character who was strong but was not needed to prop up the rest of the family - each member of her family helped out and wasn't a burden on another person, although one of them courted trouble and ended up paying the price. I like that Chantel wasn't the only one responsible in her family. Same with Dante - each of his family members did their part and worked together without being a prop to show Dante's goodness. 

 

And the sparks flew so much when Chantel and Dante were together it was a wonder that the town wasn't set on fire. Their romance was a slow burn (real slow) but the other plotlines in the story kept the romance from becoming repetitive. A lot of stuff goes down in a small mining town in Minnesota over the course of a year, which gave Chantel and Dante room to grow as individuals as well as a couple. 

 

One issue I had with the book was that the preaching got repetitive towards the last 25% of the book. Up until then, the religious tone was woven within the characters and story seamlessly, then all of a sudden it was scripture quotes on every page.

 

I have plans to read the other two books in the trilogy. Each book can be read as a stand alone, so no worries about having to read the series in order.

Reading more from my WWI reading list: To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion 1914-1918 by Adam Hochschild and The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 by Christopher Clark. Then I am taking the summer off from reading WWI nonfiction.

 

Bout of Books Cycle 22 (May 14th-20th) - going to focus on reading more of the short books on my NOOK and Kindle. Sign ups started yesterday.

 

I am the second person in the que for I'll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara, so I hope to at least get it before the month is done. 

 

Going to try and work on some series:

1. Serpent's Kiss (The Beauchamp Family #2) by Melissa de la Cruz

2. Harmony Cabins (Finding Home #2) by Regina Hart

3. When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) by Brenda Novak

4. He's So Fine (Lucky Harbor #11) by Jill Shalvis 

5. The Miner's Lady (Land of Shining Water #3) by Tracie Peterson (a holdover from April)
