Part One of Need You Now By Beth Wiseman, is very engaging from the first page! I can’t wait to read the rest of the book to find out what happens.
I knew there would be obstacles in this story, just based on the title. I was prepared. However, going into a book, you never know what obstacles there will be. It seems that by the time Part One is finished, the obstacles are just starting to come to light and really take focus. I can tell that this book is going to lead us to the everlasting grace of God and the reliance of Him in our lives!
Darlene, her husband Brad, and three children move to Round Top, a city an hour and a half outside of Houston. Brad is a tax accountant and the story opens on his busiest season, tax time, ring a bell? J Darlene has been a stay at home mom since her children were born and is itching to do something productive so she takes a job as a teacher’s aid at a school for special needs. As she gets more involved with her job, it seems she becomes less involved with her kids.
I am looking forward to reading the next part. I don’t want to give away too much in Part One, you will have to read for yourself to see how the characters develop.
I received the first half of Beth Wiseman’s book through Booksneeze for my honest thoughts and opinions.

Dawn Comes Early by Margaret Brownley was a fun story set in the West on a Cattle Ranch. Kate Tenney, from Boston, is a writer, but not just any writer. She writes dime novels and when she chose to write a scene that some thought was too “riskay” her book was banned, and frankly, so was she. So, she applied for a job in Cactus Patch Arizona to be a heiress to a cattle ranch. When Kate first arrived she meets up with Cactus Joe, an outlaw, trying to be like the famous Jessie James. Kate finally gets to the ranch with the help of Luke Adams, a handsome blacksmith. Notice the word handsome, yes, this is a love story! At the ranch, Kate learns from the cowhands what needs to be done and how to do it, but her learning comes with spills and dumps, from her horse that is.
Kate finally begins to feel comfortable at the ranch, but also keeps bumping into Luke Adams. She knows that in order to own the ranch she must never marry and she tries to keep her eyes set on her prize. But, the Lord, always the Lord, has different plans for her.
Read this fun romance, and you will not be dissapointed. One underlying message that is always a joy to read is this: “I will never leave you nor forsake you” says the Lord.
I received a copy of this book from Booksneeze for my honest thoughts and opinions.
