Reading A Family for Luke

I picked up the latest Love Inspired novels on the weekend. One of my favourite authors, who also happens to be Canadian, has a new one out this month. I love reading Carolyne Aarsen's stories. Not just because they are often set in familiar land, but because Carolyne's writing doesn't jump from one head to another like I've been having to deal with a lot lately in the LI's I've picked up. Seems to be a new trend in their line. One that's taking some getting used to--reluctantly.

Anyway, A Family for Luke by Carolyne Aarsen is about:

"Wanted: Family (Must Love Dogs)

Luke Harris grew up without family. Now, it's all he wants. More so when he and his friendly dog move next door to widowed mom Janie Corbett and her three kids. For the first time, he can imagine hearing the pitter-patter of little feet in his own home. Listening to their bedtime prayers. Having a wife and children to call his own. But once-burned/twice-shy Janie won't say yes--unless Luke acknowledges his troubled past. With the help of one stubborn woman, three smart kids and a cherished Labrador retriever, there might be a family for Luke, after all."

I'm enjoying this story, hope you'll pick up a copy and try it out, too.

Awww, head hopping. I used to do it like a pro. LOL
I have a whole pile of LIs to get through but haven't read her yet. Thanks for the review. :-)
