  1. Hi Ashley, thanks for the book suggestion! I haven’t read a western romance before. I will have to give this one a try!

    • You’re so welcome, Casey. Western romance was a bit of stretch–very far from my beloved Highlands. But Jodi is such a great writer that I loved her story. Hope you do, too. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Thanks for the heads-up on this book. It seems as though westerns are making a comeback.

    • You’re so welcome, Donna. Westerns may be cycling back into fashion, along with country music. Although, I don’t think westerns went completely out of fashion this last cycle–probably due to the e-book revolution. Cheers, Ashley

  3. I won Jodi’s book WELCOME TO HARMONY (a 2011 Rita Winner) this summer after commenting on her blog. I feel so lucky to have read this book by a talented writer. I’m excited about reading more in the series. She knows how to write small town life and make those seamless POV changes.

    Thanks for the additional title to check out during this cold winter, Ashley.

    • Congratulations, Jolyse. And I’m so glad you liked “Welcome to Harmony.” I hope you enjoy this new story just as much. Cheers, Ashley
