On My Nightstand - Along Came Love by Carrie Turansky

Lauren Woodman returns to her hometown of Tipton, Vermont, with her son, Toby. She's in the process of building a business and settling her child into a new environment when a snowstorm brings Wes Evans into her life.

Both Lauren and Wes have a past that haunts their every waking moment. They've learned to forgive others, but can they forgive themselves and move on with their lives?

"Along Came Love" is more than a sweet love story. Carrie explores how secrets can cause heartache and misunderstanding. She communicates the angst both Lauren and Wes suffer and the necessity for honesty in a relationship.

This book not only had me rooting for Lauren and Wes, but ministered to some painful areas in my own life. Thanks Carrie.

Hi Jess -

At the moment, I'm staying ahead of my posting schedule. I can't guarantee I'll be able to keep up the pace. If you recall, I've done a couple of interviews in between. LOL!

This book came out in 2006. I review older titles, as well as ones being released. Carrie has newer books out there. I hope you'll visit her website.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Sarah -

For some unknown reason, Blogger doesn't send your comments to my email inbox, but only to the comments moderation page. Since I don't check that every day, some comments languish there.

I entered you in the contest. :)
