Small Town Romances

Inspirational Boxed Set

by Mary Davis

Small Town Romances

Mary DavisThe Daughter’s Predicament—As Isabelle Atwood’s romance prospects are turning in her favor, a family scandal derails her dreams. Despite gaining the attention of a handsome rancher, her parents are pressuring her to marry a man of their choosing to rescue her sister’s reputation. While a third suitor waits silently in the wings, hoping to sweep her off her feet. Whom will Isabelle choose?

Cynthia HerronHer Hope Discovered—Is the sure thing worth risking for the possibility of maybe?

Charla Winthrop, a savvy business woman seeking a permanent lifestyle change in small-town Ruby, learns that things aren’t always what they appear when she takes up residence in a house steeped in charm and a hint of mystery.

Rumor has it that Sam Packard the town carpenter is her go-to guy for home remodeling, but can Charla convince him to help her—with no strings attached, of course? Alone far too long, Sam’s prayed that God would send him a wife and a mother for his daughters. However, the new Ruby resident is hardly what he imagined.

Christa MacDonaldAt the Crossroad—Erin Sullivan has endured the rumor mill of Sweet River, Maine for years. Being the subject of small-town judgment taught her not to hope for good things. No matter how strong her feelings were for Pastor Dan Connors, she planned to keep them buried for the sake of his reputation and the good of her own heart.

Dan became a pastor thinking it would be temporary–three years later he is struggling in a job he never wanted. When Erin sees Dan struggling alone, she reaches out to help, and he comes to rely on her quiet strength and kindness. Dan is determined to find his way, but it may have to be without the woman he’s come to love.

Barbara ScottDreams of My Heart—If plucky Irish immigrant Kate O’Brien can’t pay off the loan on her deceased brother’s homestead, she’ll be forced to marry the banker’s son. When she’s attacked by a drunken gang, salvation comes from a total stranger—Texas cattleman Buck McKean. However, his kindness threatens her reputation, and they marry to prevent impending consequences. But love has a hard time growing within two hearts scarred from past hurts. When Kate asks Buck for the unthinkable, her choice endangers both their lives. Can God mend their hearts and save their love?

Kelsey NormanUnbroken Spirit—Nina Anderson never expected to pull an unconscious man from a lake. Neither did she imagine that the unearthly man would claim he was sent to be her protector and help her with an impending future event. Nina’s mysterious new protector, Liam, brings her the respect she’s always wanted—and maybe even a chance at love. Will he have the power to save her and restore Nina’s faith in God?

CrossReads Short Takes

It All Started at the Masquerade

by Janice Cole Hopkins

It All Started at the Masquerade

When Melanie Carter’s older brother decides she’s to marry Lott Jenkins, a wealthy man who has the reputation of being harsh and unbearable, she knows her life has just started on a downward spiral. However, she’s determined to trust that God would not want her with such a man and try to make the best of the awful situation. At a masquerade ball in Edenton, she meets a rather mysterious man dressed as a knight, and she can’t forget him.

Lucas Hall can’t forget Melanie either, but he might as well. Once she sees the hideously scarred side of his face, she’d be repulsed like everyone else. That’s why he wears a mask whenever he goes out, which isn’t often. He wouldn’t have gone to the masquerade ball if his housekeeper hadn’t tricked him into going. Now he’s haunted by a scene he saw between Lott Jenkins and Melanie. No woman should ever be treated with such disregard, but what can he do? If he tried to help, they’d take one look at him, and he’d be no help at all.




It Was Not My Time

by Anna Mitchell

It Was Not My Time

It was not her time!

This is a story that will provide hope for someone fighting for their life. As a stage three breast cancer survivor, Anna Mitchell is a living testimony that God still performs miracles today. As you read, It Was Not My Time, you will be taken on a journey full of strength, faith and unbreakable trust. Through the power of prayer, a strong mindset and persistent positivity, she was physically touched and healed by God. Medical proof of her healing came three days later when she had a CT scan and the results returned negative. No sign of cancer!

Through experience, the author realizes, that when tragedy strikes, people need to cling to their faith. Struggling with the fact that God chose her, she wanted answers. She got her answers and found her mission. She was chosen to share her journey with others in hope of shedding light in the midst of dark times. Most importantly, she wants to help others wrestling through the worst days of their lives and to share with the world that He is real and He heals.

“For no word from God will ever fail.” Luke 1:37

                         Gems From Pastor Jim 1/18/2021

by Jim Hughes

CrossJonah 2:7 “When I had lost all hope, I turned my thoughts once more to the LORD. And my earnest prayer went out to you in your holy Temple.”

Sadly, we are often just like Jonah was. We keep on trying to do things our way until there is just no hope left for it to work. We run from God as far as we can. We try to fill up our lives with those things which can never satisfy or bring us peace. We try to follow the advice of the world only to discover how foolish it really is. We keep busy so that we don’t have to deal with the gnawing feeling of emptiness in our souls. We stubbornly try to live our lives without God in it, only to discover how miserable of a life we really have.

Jonah had to get down to the lowest possible level he could possibly be in before he acknowledged it wasn’t working and he turned to the Lord. He once knew what it was like to live in fellowship with God, but he ran away from Him. He got himself in a mess that he could not get out of. He was facing certain death at the bottom of the sea in the belly of a fish. He was covered with seaweed and he was in the middle of water everywhere. It was dark and there was no way out. He had a choice to make; he could die in his misery or he could cry out to the Lord for help.
