Idelle's Inheritance (not yet available)
Love this novella! I'm a sucker for time travel and this is romantic Scottish time travel - so what's not to love! The house in Edinburgh is fascinating as is the whole set-up. I like the concept of needing to wear contemporary clothes to nip through the time-slip. The historical background is interesting and is important in establishing aspects of Moira's personality. I love Brody and I am hoping that is not the last we hear of him as I gather this is a teaser for a longer novel - and then there's Graeme, of course - plenty of intrigue there… Idelle and Moira seem to share a sense of fun. I am hoping that they continue to have more adventures together. Can’t wait to read more about them! ~Jenny Warren, 2018
Caterina's Renaissance is a delight. I find myself thinking about it when I'm somewhere else. Time travel, a dragon, true love... all set oddly believably in today's world.

You know an author has created some great characters when I miss them after I finish the book. I was just wondering this morning what Massimo and Catherine were up to next, then I got a little sad when I remembered I was finished with the book. I want to thank her for making a strong female character! I love it.

The Celtic Coast ConnectionThoroughly enjoyableSit up and take note, romance readers. Christa Bedwin has written a delightful, warm, engrossing and escapist book in 'The Celtic Coast Connection'.
Set between the Canadian east c
oast of Nova Scotia and the expansive prairies of Alberta, for Jane and Rory a chance meeting as teenagers remains a poignant shadowy memory for them both. Bedwin draws the reader into an indulgently romantic story, which keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next. Will they get it together, or won’t they? You can’t but help love the gorgeous Rory with his black curls and magical eyes. And Jane, too, with her waist-length hair; she is a captivating and vulnerably winsome heroine.
'The Celtic Connection' has all the ingredients of a fine romance. You’ll enjoy it.
of the LandHeartwarming story!I really enjoyed this read.
The setting is beautiful and is deeply woven into Lanette's journey to love. She is a strong, very appealing heroine and Rob is her passionate match in every way. Each has misconceptions about the other as they are from seemingly opposite ways of life. They struggle through trust and vulnerability issues on their way to love and it's a sweet, passionate ride. The land, animals and Lanette's way of life are written with appeal and make you long to join her in "her neck of the woods". I also loved her mother, Melba, and extended family. They are salt of the earth and after spending time with them on Lanette's land, I could identify with her struggle of not wanting to risk losing the most valuable and meaningful parts of her life. Love is always a risk and Lanette was brave enough to grow, let go, and take a chance.
It's a very feel good read!
Two Secrets & a ChaseAn Australian Odyssey!Two Secrets and a Chase was my favorite book in The Canadian Girls series. One of the reasons was the Australian setting. Another was the interactions that the heroine had with other characters as she struggled to get over her love. I had to laugh at the Australian tour guide who was so typical of guides whom one often encounters on bus tours. I was sorry when this novel ended.
