Great Historical Fiction

If you enjoy sweet, clean well-written historical fiction, then you will enjoy a Meredith Kennon novel!

I recently read The Gown Shop on Regent Street.


My review:

I greatly enjoyed this novel about a group of friends struggling through life together after facing the horrors of war. It was well written and flowed beautifully. I can't begin to imagine what it would be like to pick up the pieces of your life after war--but this story gives you a glimpse into the hard realities people faced. I found myself feeling thankful for the simple things in life that I take for granted on a daily basis.
While I loved the story of the gown shop, my favorite parts included Frank and Melany. I especially enjoyed Frank's sleuthing and Melany's articles.
This book works as a stand alone. It is the first book in the series that I've read and I understood everything that was going on. I'd love to go back and read the earlier stories that were occasionally referenced in the novel--as a matter of fact, I'm looking forward to reading more! Great work, Meredith Kennon!

Check out all of Meredith's novels here.

MONDAY MUSINGS

I'm back!

It's been a wonderful and crazy two weeks!

We packed so much into the last two weeks that we are all exhausted.

But the memories will stay with us for a long time to come!


I spent most of my time like this:


But . . . we also . . .

Went to the zoo:


(As far as the kids were concerned, the slide was the main attraction!)

We visited the Discovery Center:




Let the kids swim in the backyard:
(Not a tunnel!)


We went on several outings to the park/playground, had picnics, and fed the ducks:



We took the kids to the movies, Chuck E. Cheese, etc, etc--
and overall, just had some great family time.

My daughters:



My grandsons:



(Do you know how hard it was to get this picture? You should see some of the other attempts. Hilarious!)

So sad that everyone is gone. Gonna spend some time crying and then move on with life.

Sigh.

Book news:

I offered Lancaster House for FREE over the weekend. It spent two days as #1 on Amazon's Top Free 100 list under Paranormal Ghost Romance and Paranormal Vampire Romance.
So exciting!!

AND I now have new covers for every single one of my books!
I've already revealed the new covers for I Have People and Joshua's Folly. 
Here are the new covers for For Nick and I'm With You:
(Please note: It will take some time before these covers are up and available for purchase.)






Have a great Monday, everyone!!

Thank you Ms. Dean for Sierra. A wonderful read. An edge-of-your-seat kinda book. I recommend it highly. Oh, and thank you for keeping it "clean". There was romance and tenderness but all done tastefully.

When a reader says they read my book in one day and could NOT put it down:
