Check out The Ride of Her Life!!

Get ready for a thrill ride, romantic curves and turns and cute children, all in one book!

She's planted firmly on solid ground.
He's ready to sweep her off her feet.

The only man pragmatic Lilly Hart needs in her life is a six-year-old. Widowed for three years, Lilly has decided to leave the home of her intrusive in-laws to stand on her own. However, her in-laws find her new life as a cook at Lake Manawa utterly unsuitable for their grandson. When an argument ensues, a handsome stranger--who designs roller coasters, of all things--intercedes on her behalf. But Lilly is not about to get involved with any man, especially this cocky gentleman. Little does she know she is about to begin the ride of her life.

Filled with the sweet romance of summer, The Ride of Her Life will have you laughing out loud and sighing contentedly as you spend the summer of 1906 at Lake Manawa.

MY REVIEW-Okay, talk about a fun, romantic read! This is the third and last book in the Lake Manawa Summers Series by Lorna Seilstad. And I felt let down! Not by the book but that this is the end of the series:( At the end of this book I feel like I am leaving friends who I have come to know over the last year or so. Because not only is this book about Lilly and Nick, but it also includes Marguerite and Emily from the past books.

This is a book that really brings a good ending to the series. Lilly is such a stubborn lady that wants to stand on her own and do things by herself but she finds out that it isn't wrong to accept help from others. I know from my own personal experience that sometimes a little help is just what you need to get through the day. Just that other person being there for you. Nick Perrin is a roller coaster designer and he is quite a manly hero. Always ready to be there for Lilly but as Sean points out, you can't always be there and you can't change everything. The Lord is the one we have to rely on. And let me tell you, Levi is just the most adorable little boy! He has that fun love of bugs and snakes and other creepy crawlers:)

If you love a good historical book, this is one to pick up. Mystery, romance, thrills and excitement are all mixed together in one book. Can't wait to see what Lorna has in store for her readers next!

Available May 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
