Hello, reader friends!!! It has been a super crazy week and I haven’t been here nearly as much as I planned. Come visit me on Seekerville today, we’re chatting about reviews and I brought donuts!!!

A Heart Reclaimed by Elizabeth Maddrey

A Heart Reclaimed by Elizabeth Maddrey

goodreads | amazon


Anna Hamilton parked her car under one of the shaggy cedars near the front of Peacock Hill and rubbed her hands together. Finally, a chance to be a part of a project that mattered.


I am LOVING this series!!! Readers who enjoy home improvement shows, renovations, or diy projects really MUST read these stories!

Anna Hamilton is a sweet gal but painfully insecure. Duncan McInyre is a super talented landscape architect (with the muscle and work ethic to back up his plans) on the brink of being fed-up with his current supervisor. Both characters and the supporting cast are genuine and authentic while the storyline is a delightful HGTV meets Hallmark mashup!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading later this month, The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan.

    There are good anniversaries, and bad anniversaries . This was a bad one and Suzanne chose to mark the moment with a nightmare.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!????????????


  2. “Thank you, Hope Early, for joining us and sharing all of your tips for spring cleaning. I’m sure you’ve inspired our listeners to get busy and start cleaning out their homes,” Morning Pete of WPTX radio said.

  3. Elizabeth Maddrey is a great writer, and this sounds like a great series! Thank you so much for sharing, Beth Erin!


  4. On my blog today, I am featuring a book by Georgette Heyer, “A Civil Contract.” Here, I will share the first line of chapter 10 in that same novel. “Few invitations conferred so great a distinction on the social aspirant as one to Nassington House.” Enjoy your weekend!


  5. The book I’m sharing on my blog is Unblemished by Sara Ella but I’m currently reading called The Road Home by Beverly Lewis. I shared the first line last week so I’ll share the first line of chapter 22 where I am right now: ” The next morning, after the four o’clock milking and a nice hot breakfast, Mimi suggested Harley take a lemon pound cake over to Abram Mast’s for his birthday.” Cake anyone? 😛 (I actually don’t like lemon pound cake though lol).


  6. Good evening Beth!
    My first line Friday is from a book I have not read yet, it is setting on my TBR table by my reading chair.

    Land of my Dreams by Norma Gail.
    Bonny Bryant knew it was crazy to even think about a man when she was headed for Scotland.

    blessings, Tina


  7. Important question: Amazon tells me this is #2 in a series. Do I need to read #1 first? Because this sounds good!

    I’m sharing the very long first line from A Defense of Honor from the new Haven Manor series by Kristi Ann Hunter on my blog today. It was one of those read-in-a-day books 🙂

    I’m currently reading Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh, a romance about a woman wanting to reconnect with the mother who abandoned her years ago. But the first line is from the viewpoint of the hero:

    He shouldn’t be here.
    A diner in some little tourist town in Michigan was no place for Grady Benson, but here he was.

    Have a great weekend!
