Tiny Blessings Tale Book 5: Giving Thanks for Baby
Re: Soul mates
You and Kelly share something special. I'd like to find my soul mate, too. Starting over in Chestnut Grove with an infant was such a major life change. At first, I wasn't sure if I was ready to move on, but it was time to stop dwelling on the past, so I took Kelly's advice and registered with a singles' Web site. I met the nicest e-mail buddy, but I also like your new assistant pastor, Scott Crosby. So, big brother, maybe this Thanksgiving we can all give thanks for our blessings---large and small.
**There are actually two series of six books each but they are all in the same town with the same people. If you enjoy series the twelve books read together were really good!

Faith at the Crossroads Book 5: Strictly Confidential
From the desk of Colleen Montgomery:
Alessandro Donato--there's more to Lidia Vance's nephew than meets the eye.
*Says he's an accountant for the European Union (but spends a lot of time here in Colorado Springs).
*Pops up whenever anything bad happens...and then mysteriously disappears. Wonder if he knows anything about the troubles plaguing the Vance and Montgomery families, and/or if it's connected to the dismantled drug cartel?
I'll have to stick close to the handsome Italian to find out what secrets he's keeping. It'll be tough, but this reporter is willing to do whatever it takes to uncover the truth.
**This is also part of a the Faith on the Line series and I highly recommend reading all twelve books together for the full and exciting picture.
The Secrets of Stoneley Book 3: Beloved Enemy
From the desk of Juliet Blanchard:
I thought working in our family firm would finally make my father show some interest in me. He's always been distant toward me--possibly because I might not be his child? (I found an incriminating photo of my long-presumed-dead mother with a man I resemble).
Then I found he gave Brandon De Witte my job! I know this handsome newcomer is keeping secrets hopefully not dangerous ones. Because not only is my faith shaken right now, but someone seems to want me out of the picture, permanently!
