CrossReads Book Spotlight

Raspberries and Vinegar

by Valerie Comer

Raspberries and Vinegar

From a USA Today Bestselling Author!
“Stayed up all night reading! …such a captivating romance.”
“Witty and enchanting!”

Sweet like Raspberries. Tart like Vinegar. 

Josephine Shaw: complex, yet singleminded. A tiny woman with big ideas and, some would say, a mouth to match. But what does she really know about sustainable living as it relates to the real world? After all, she and her two friends are new to farming.

Zachary Nemesek is back only until his dad recovers enough to work his own land again. When Zach discovers three helpless females have taken up residence at the old farm next door, he expects trouble. But a mouse invasion proves Jo has everything under control. Is there anything she can’t handle? And surely there’s something sweet beneath all that tart.

Raspberries and Vinegar is the first book in the Farm Fresh Romance series. If you like Christian romance novels that are clean, green, and filled with characters you alternately wish to hug and shake, you’ll love Valerie Comer’s page-turning romance series. Why not scroll up and get started today?

CrossReads Short Takes

Love Begins

by Teresa Slack

Love Begins

“If I wasn’t such a good Christian, you’d be in an orphanage somewhere, young lady.”

Abandoned by their parents, Michelle Hurley and her kid sister Nicole are reminded every day their livelihood depends on a grandmother who never wanted them. Nearly twenty years later, Michelle has accepted the fact she isn’t worthy of the love she so desperately needed as a child.

Her comfortable, albeit lonely, existence comes crashing down the morning Nicole abandons her two young children under Michelle’s lilac bushes. Michelle doesn’t want to be responsible for fixing Nicole’s mistakes. Again. Nor does she want to admit she may be just like the grandmother she can’t forgive.

When as old boyfriend re-enters her life, Michelle is reminded nothing has worked out the way she hoped it would. Kyle Swann also makes her realize shutting her heart against the world could be the worst mistake she ever made.

Love Begins is the first installment of the Tender Blessings contemporary series.

This thought-provoking contemporary romance examines the changing dynamics of family relationships and issues. Infused with honesty and humor, it will capture the hearts of readers who love children, understand their challenges and appreciate the many definitions of family.

Comfort Level

by Ruth Donner O’Neil

Ephesians 5:3-7   

 “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient (Ephesians 5:6). 

I had an interesting job. I worked in a call center and I don’t know who entertained me more, the people I called every night or the people with whom I worked. Even though I was a supervisor and didn’t usually get on the phone, occasionally I did need to make a few calls myself.

One such time we had extra calling to do on top of all our regular work. We were calling hotels to find out if they offered adult movies for their patrons to watch. The company we were doing the calling for was going to set up a website so Christian families can be prepared when they went on vacation.

At first, I was embarrassed asking about adult movies. I certainly didn’t want any of those hotel workers thinking I actually wanted to watch them! I had to keep saying over and over in my head, “They don’t know me. They don’t know me. They don’t know me.” On the other hand, I wasn’t naïve to the fact that plenty of these types of movies existed. I was thirty-something years old and had been married for quite a while; I didn’t understand why it was so awkward for me to ask the question, “Do you offer adult movies in your rooms?”
