On My Nightstand - An Accidental Family by Loree Lough

Nadine Greene is attracted to her neighbor, Lamont London. Yet, she's afraid to follow her heart. A widow, her marriage left scars, both physical and emotional. Can she get past her fears and experience true love?

Lamont London played the field after his wife died, but he couldn't reconcile his love for his late wife and remarriage. Circumstances throw him in the path of the lovely Nadine Greene.

This is the first book I've read by Loree Lough, and I enjoyed it. As a widow, I appreciated the sensitive exploration of the characters' feelings, turmoil, and confusion.

This Love Inspired book contained all the satisfying elements one looks for in a romance. At 215 pages, it's a quick read. I'd pick up another Loree Lough book in a heartbeat.

What's your favorite (past or current) love story?

Oooh, favorite love stories... hmmm...I have a bunch. :-) And you know what, the two I just thought of involve widows. I also LOVE the movie Last of the Mohicans (not the book though, lol)

What a great plot!
Favorite love story ... I think Anne and Gilbert will always have a special place in my heart. Though I also enjoy Jane Eyre and Mr. R. Too many to chose from:)

Hi Jess - It seems to be a popular theme lately. Either that or I'm just noticing them!

Hi Kristen - Oh yes, I love Anne of Green Gables.

I love love stories too - can't remember a specific one - although I always wished Rex and Scarlett had gotten together! sandie

Loree Lough is a prolific writer and a sweet lady.

My favorite current love story? In the Company of Others by Jan Karon, and the Bible.

Thanks for asking!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Chatty - Yes, I agree. Gone With The Wind had a crummy ending.

Hi Jen - I've read a bunch of Jan Karon's books, but I missed that one. I'll have to jot it down.

Hi Susan,
I like shorter novels because I dont take a lot of time to read these days. I dont think I have the attentions span for an epic.

Hi Jan -

Yes, a longer novel can be a time challenge. I can manage a book a week if it's 250-300 pages.

Susan :)
