Hearts Awakening (Hearts Along The River #1)Hearts Awakening by Delia Parr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love books with people who are real. People who aren't the smartest, the prettiest, the richest, the perfect. This is one of those stories.

Ellie Kilmer didn't have much choice - or chance - in life. She chose to spend her life caring for her elderly parents. Tall and plain, it wasn't like she had many offers anyway. Upon their deaths, she was shuffled between her cousins, neither of whom wanted her, until she accepted a business-like proposal.

Jackson Smith had survived losing the love of his life and his unfaithful wife. With two young boys to raise, he needed help. Living on an island away from town, his only good option was to marry again. But he had no use for another woman other than to raise his boys. What better woman to pick than one who lacked any appeal?

Will being a stepmother fulfill Ellie's inner desire for a family of her own? Can Jackson trust another woman when two others have let him down?

A good story with characters the reader can get behind and root for. Engaging little boys who act like little boys, not little angels, and even a stray dog to round the story out. Worth the read!

Code of Honor (Australian Destiny #1)Code of Honor by Sandy Dengler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first in a series, this book caught my interest in the first few pages. Samantha Connolly was born and raised in Ireland, but there's nothing for her there anymore. Doomed to finish life as a spinster, she gambles on an advertisement asking for indentured servants in Australia.

Cole Sloan had a lot of Australian land and little money. The laws had changed and no longer allowed him to use the native black people for slave labor. Enticing Irish lasses to his shores was the perfect solution. Or so he thought.

Sam's sisters, Meg and Linnet, sell themselves into indenture along with her. They arrive in Australia hoping for a better life and husbands. What they find is hard work, a steamy tropical jungle, crocodiles, and a master who drives a hard bargain.

This is the type of book that doesn't wrap up many loose ends at the finish. It more or less pauses at a logical point, to be picked up again in book 2. If you enjoy long historical sagas, this is a good one.
