My review of this book!



Ok so do remember long long time ago watching a really good family show like Little House of the Prairie and loving every episode? Now Sunrise Serenade is like that. Although this book is the 12th in the Home to Heather Creek series, you don't need to start at the beginning. This is a great book to get you hooked on this wonderful family town full of fun characters! I hate to give the story away but I promise you will love it. Its an easy read and I can not wait to catch up myself on the early parts of this series.You will love the author!



So if you have read my reviews before, you will recognize the following info. But please get hooked! You will notice that the author sometimes does a contest on her blog too! The link is below so please enjoy! But they did send me 2 copies of this book and I want to give one to you! So leave a comment with what book you are reading, what you just read or what you are going to read and I will draw names on Tuesday morning!

Also, don't forget to visit the others on the book tour to get other chances to win!!!





About Sunflower Serenade: A small-town summer...

The days are long and lazy, the corn is high, the sunflowers are in bloom, and everyone in Bedford is gearing up for the biggest event of the summer: the annual county fair. But when a Nashville music producer approaches Bob about using Heather Creek Farm to film a country star's new music video, he and Charlotte are faced with a dilemma. Will they allow the glamour and enticements of big-city life to encroach upon their peaceful home? Will the excitement of celebrity drown out the simple joys of summer?



About the Home to Heather Creek series: Charlotte Stevenson's world is turned upside down when her daughter, Denise, dies in a tragic car accident. She ran away at eighteen and Charlotte has never forgiven herself. Now, Denise's children, abandoned by their father, are coming from California to live on Heather Creek Farm in Bedford, Nebraska.



Charlotte is uncertain about her ability to care for three grandchildren who are not thrilled to give up the beach and sunshine for snow and farm chores! But she sees a chance to make amends and will do whatever it takes to keep her fragile family together. Feel the courage, strength and commitment of this family as their lives unfold in the Home to Heather Creek series.

Sounds like a great book. I loved Little House!! I'm one of those people who read multiple books. I'm reading the NMC book club book by Charles Martin and then 'Velvet Elvis' by Rob Bell. Both are great!
