Inventions of the Heart by Mary Connealy

Series: The Lumber Baron’s Daughters #2

Release Date: July 5, 2022

Genre: Christian, Historical/Western Romance

My Review

I’m not one to be a fan of westerns, but aside from all the horses and outlaws I wouldn’t really think of this as a western. This book is just a very entertaining story of good families that work together to make all their lives better. It’s also the story of some terrible families and people who only care about themselves and will commit any offense in order to get what they want.

It’s the second book of a series, and I’ll be eager to read the other books in this series. The writing is great and I was sold on the first page. This book has a lot of characters, but the main two are Michelle and Zane. Zane owns the Two Harts Ranch, which is mainly a cattle ranch. He has plenty of workers and also others that live on the vast property, who were part of a missionary group.

He has recently had two new guests, Michelle and Zilly Stiles, who are the sisters of the lumber magnate. They’re in hiding from their wicked step-father who desires to marry them off to horrible old men so that he can gain control of the fortune and business. These highly-educated girls were trained in engineering and building.

The story is complex, but easy enough to follow. It’s very exciting and you’ll find yourself almost holding your breath, hoping that the good guys can succeed at every turn. The bad guys are offered chances to turn from their evil ways and give their hearts to God, but they don’t. I know you’ll enjoy this rip-roaring western with enough romance for all of us.

The Epic Story of RJ and York Blog & Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Epic Story of RJ and York by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


It’s an epic adventure across Europe, from France to Italy, to Germany and even Russia in this riveting, fun, romantic, enthralling trilogy about true love, honor, and the cost of, well, saving the world.

Title: Out of the Night Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #1 Author: Susan May Warren Publisher: SDG Publishing Release Date: August 9, 2022 Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The romantic trilogy ignites in book one of the Epic Story of RJ and York! He’s not looking for trouble… All former spy and current national security agent York Newgate wants is to propose to the woman he loves, RJ Marshall. Then they can move to Shelly, Washington, and start the calm, safe life he’s been dreaming of for over a year. Too bad trouble doesn’t agree… Or maybe RJ simply attracts trouble because she’s just going out for coffee when she spots a wanted, known terrorist standing in the middle of a street in Paris. At least she thinks it’s international criminal Alan Martin, the mastermind behind a plot to kill the president. But he’s in jail, right? Wrong. Martin has escaped, and it’s up to RJ—and York—to keep him in their sights until he can be apprehended. But chasing down Martin means following him into the darkness of whatever plot he’s cooked up now. Will he ever outrun trouble to find his happy ending? So much for York’s epic proposal. Now, he just wants to escape Europe with their lives. PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble  

Title: I Will Find You Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #2 Author: Susan May Warren Publisher: SDG Publishing Release Date: August 16, 2022 Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The gripping romantic adventure continues across Europe in this second installment of the Epic Story of RJ and York! The woman he loves has vanished… When RJ Marshall said she’d be right back, York should have objected. No, he wasn’t going to let her run off to Berlin, even if it was to save a little girl. Only problem—she’d told him this while he was unconscious. So really, it doesn’t count, and it’s not his fault that she’s gone missing. And, he didn’t know why he expected RJ not to chase danger into trouble. But now he has to find her before criminal mastermind Alan Martin tracks her down. She’s in over her head… RJ didn’t mean to leave York behind, but she’s on a mission to save a little girl caught in the crossfire of Martin’s terrorist plot. Now, she’ll have to find the girl and keep her safe while leaving clues for York to follow her. But who will catch up to her first—York, or the man with a vendetta? PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble  

Title: No Matter the Cost Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #3 Author: Susan May Warren Publisher: SDG Publishing Release Date: August 23, 2022 Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The riveting conclusion to the Epic Story of RJ and York! Her worst nightmare has happened…. RJ refuses to believe it, and until she has proof, she’s going to keep searching for answers. And most of all, for the man she loves, even if it means diving into the past he always wanted to keep secret. The kind of secrets that could have set York free. It’ll take a trip back to Russia, to the sketchy and dark history of York’s life to find the clues to the sinister plans of a global terrorist. And the answers that might lead her to a happy ending. Or has it? What if her happy ending is more than a dream? If RJ hopes to save her country—and find out the truth about York—she’ll have to become the high-action, Sydney Bristow spy that she always dreamed of being. But really, does RJ really have what it takes—with, or without the man she loves—to save the world? And if she does…what will be the cost? PURCHASE LINKS*: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Author Bio –

Bella has been jotting down stories as far back as she can remember but decided that 2013 would be the year that she finished a full length novel. Since then she’s written a number of best-selling romantic comedies and book club reads and won the RNA Romantic Comedy Novel of the Year Award 2022.

Bella’s stories are about friendship, love and coping with what life throws at you. She likes to find the humour in the darker moments of life and weaves these into her stories. She lives in The Midlands, UK with her husband, daughter and a cat who thinks she’s a dog. When not writing Bella is usually eating custard creams and planning holidays.


Don’t you love a good wedding story? A Wedding At Sandy Cove has many of the elements you need when looking for a good romance. This Rom/Com certainly had man funny lines. The humor really suited me well, and I was definitely laughing out loud!

There are many good characters, but the main two are Ella and Kit. Ella works as a seamstress in a bridal shop. She’s overworked by the cruel tyrant, Wanda. Kit helps to convince her that she should open her own business and helps her with plans to remodel her garage.

The main plot is that Kit and Ella see her dad and his mom eating out and find they’re having an affair. They try to plan schemes to break them up, because they don’t want their parents to be split up. Read the book to find out what they accomplish. (I give the book a PG-13+) rating for cursing, crude language, excessive drinking, and stripping.

Her Unlikely Homecoming

Her Unlikely Homecoming banner


I was interested in reading this book because it sounded like a sweet Hallmark movie and the cover looked like the train station I used to catch my train to the east coast.

I don’t believe that I’ve read any books from this author before, but I enjoy the way she describes everything so vividly. She takes a lot of time to describe the setting of each scene so that you can picture it in your mind.

The main characters are Zoey and Noah, who were once high-school sweethearts. But, things have changed and Zoey moved away. Now, she’s returning and has vowed never to see his face again. That may be very hard to do.

Creating a setting in a small town makes the story more quaint, charming, and romantic. The characters are believable because second change love happens every day!
