Reviews - What do customers think about Lanterns and Lace (Texas Legacy, Book 2) (Truly Yours Romance Club #3)?
A book to inspire and encourage you in your faith Oct 27, 2008
The title of this book did not prepare me for lay inside. This book was such an encouragement to me. It was hard to put it down so it sit by my computer and while pages loaded, I would read a page or two. It was fasinating to find a young lady traveling across country to learn of her neice and instead finding faith and hope herself. Little did she know she was being followed and that her life could be in danger. One thing I liked about this book was how God leads in ways one does not expect to protect and bring about his will. Also I like how Jenny and Grant cannot figure out they are in love - this is so real about how people feel themselves. So unsure at first. I recommend everyone read this book.
Good Follow-up Nov 9, 2007
LANTERNS AND LACE picks up several years after LEATHER AND LACE and centers around Grant Andrews, brother of Morgan Andrews. After getting his medical degree, Grant settles back home in Kahlerville and becomes the town doctor. His life turns out a little different than he had planned when he promises a prostitute, who is not going to make it through childbirth, that he will adopt her little girl. Everything is fine until the woman's sister comes to town determined to take the child back to Cleveland with her. Though Grant is livid that Jenny feels she can just rip his little girl away from him, he decides to handle the situation with a generous amount of understanding and diplomacy, hoping to convince Jenny that Rebecca belongs with him. A strange man follows Jenny to Kahlerville as soon makes trouble for the people who befriended Jessica before her death.
I enjoyed LANTERNS AND LACE, but it was a bit slower than LEATHER AND LACE. The story line was well thought out and kept you interested but didn't seem to carry the same punch as LEATHER AND LACE. An enjoyable story overall. I liked the way DiAnn Mills built on the characters she introduced in LEATHER AND LACE.
Great adventure with realistic characters May 4, 2007
Diann has written another western adventure that gives us great characters, deep feelings, along with authenticity to the period in which the story takes place. Romance, family support and Christian values are all a part of the story. There are unexpected twists and turns that keep you reading until the last page. If you enjoy western adventure and suspense, this is another great book for you.
Good read but I liked the first in the series much better... Apr 11, 2007
Laterns and Lace is the second in a three book series by Diann Mills (my new favorite Christian fiction author). I had high hopes for this book since I absolutely loved Leather and Lace (first in the series). And when I say "loved" I mean, "stayed up all night long to finish it and kept thinking about it long after I was through." Obviously the sequal had some big shoes to fill. I honestly enjoyed this book. It is an interesting read and I did read it in a fairly short amount of time, but it just wasn't as good as its predecessor. I cared very much about the main character, Jenny, and the chemistry between her and Grant was definitely there but I just couldn't love her like I loved Casey (the heroine from the first book). Jenny is in every way Casey's opposite. She is spoiled, naive, and a bit wimpy. Not at all the strong female character that I prefer to read about.
I'm still giving it 4 stars, though, because I did enjoy the book. And my own problems with it are probably just a matter of personal preference, anyway, and not a result of poor writing on Diann's part. I don't regret taking the time to it and you won't either.
Jenny's search for Jessica and Rebecca Apr 11, 2007
Jenny Martin has gone to Kahlerville to investigate the death of her sister Jessica and to take home her sister's child Rebecca. However, when she finds the child has been adopted by the town's doctor, she is confused as to why. A strange man, Aubrey Turner has followed her all the way from Cleveland, Ohio, and seems to know entirely too much personal information about Jenny, Jessica and the child.
When a lovely elderly widow woman drops dead, her home is ransacked, the town's brothel burns and then a former soiled dove is beaten senseless, the town knows there is someone bent on destroying people and the sheriff sets off to find the guilty person or persons.
Jenny is determined to take Jessica away from the only family she has ever known. She believes the child belongs to her blood family. However, when a letter of estrangement arrives from her parents, she realizes they will not be the best caregivers for lovely little Rebecca.
It takes Jenny and the doctor a long long time to sort through everything, and when they do, a diary provides some much needed information. This book is a page burner, and book three promises to be just as good. Thank you DiAnn Mills, for another "Texas Legacy" volume.
