On My Nightstand - The Frontiersman's Daughter by Laura Frantz
She's haunted by family secrets, passionate about the Kentucky land where she was raised, and wonders if she'll ever find someone who accepts her unconditionally. Lael lives her life, determined she'll be courageous like her larger-than-life dad.
I first heard of Laura Frantz from a comment she made on a blog. (See visiting blogs and commenting does make a difference.) Little bits and pieces tickled my curiousity until I ordered her book. Wow, I'm so glad I did. What an enjoyable read!
The book is fast-paced and, unlike other romances, I didn't know who she'd marry until almost the end of the book. I liked that surprise element. It kept me engaged, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
