Turkey Trot Blog Hop

By Kristy McCaffrey

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday season here in the U.S., my thoughts always turn to one thing. Okay, yes, it's pumpkin pie but the other thought is how much I look forward to sneaking away from the crowd of family and friends and losing myself in a book.

I did this as a child and I admit the impulse is still there as an adult. Back in my youth, I would clutch my latest Nancy Drew book close, but these days I'm fortunate to have my kindle handy. It's always filled with an exciting adventure, whether it be a romance or a sci-fi yarn or a thrilling young adult dystopian fantasy.

I remember going to my grandmother's house with a book in hand, just in case I found a bit of down time, and I usually did.

So what are you reading this holiday? Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming, so it only makes sense to stock up on some great reads.

Nothing makes it easier to tune out your family than a good book. :-)

ALICE is on sale for only 99 cents!!


Alice: Bride of Rhode Island is thirteenth in the unprecedented 50-book American Mail-Order Brides series.

Fleeing her stepfather and an arranged marriage in Newport, Alice Endicott finds work as a seamstress at the Brown Textile Mill near Boston. When a devastating fire destroys the factory, she and all the girls face dire unemployment circumstances. But hope arrives when their manager, Roberta McDaniel, shares the Grooms’ Gazette with them. Each woman will choose a husband and become a mail-order bride. As Alice’s friends—Lottie, Leora, Judith, Beth, Lessie and Josie—embrace the idea, she too becomes caught up in the excitement of a grand new adventure.

When fisherman Frank Martel contacts her, Alice can’t pass up the opportunity to return to Rhode Island despite her stepfather’s presence. Upon arriving at the train station in Tiverton, however, Frank neglects to meet her.

James Martel is shocked to find a woman at the rail depot claiming to be his brother’s fiancée. Even more surprising is her connection to a man who ruined James’ father years before. When Frank confesses that he can no longer wed Alice, James steps forward to fill the role since the beautiful young woman holds the key to avenging the Martel name.

Can Alice convince her new husband that their marriage is worth saving once she discovers his subterfuge? And will James learn that love is more important than revenge?

A sweet romance set in 1890 America.

And I love talking to others about books that we have in common :-)
