Wishing on Buttercups--Miralee Ferrell GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!

 

 
 
 
 


Can Love Survive When Secrets Collide? She’d kept her secrets safely hidden—those from her past, and those in the present. Some things, Beth Roberts knows, a lady simply doesn’t share, even in the 1880’s West. The townspeople would never understand. No one ever has. Jeffery Tucker, a handsome young writer, has kept his own secrets. He doesn’t have a right to pry into Beth’s affairs but finds himself strangely drawn to her and intrigued by the whiff of mystery surrounding her. Beth knows that one day someone will unravel the threads of her past. And when two men from her past arrive, the truth might just hurt . . . Beth’s future and her heart. As shadowy memories surface, Beth sketches the scenes she sees and is shocked by what—and who—her illustrations reveal. Dare she risk her heart again?

My Review:

This was a very well written book that kept me entertained.  I liked reading Beth and Jeffery's story.  This was the first book that I have read by Miralee, but I will surely read more of her work.  This was heartfelt story.  Beth doesn't know about her past, but when she learns about it, it is a little heartwrenching.  Great job Miralee

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.

    1. Hi Danie, I'm sorry for taking so long to get back to you, as I was out of town and away from my computer all day yesterday. My favorite flowers are roses, with Day Lilies and Delphinium running a close second. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Melanie, I'm so glad you stopped in! I think I'd have to say Christy Grey from Love Finds You in Tombstone, AZ, but I really loved Angel from Sundance, WY, as well. Both were extremely strong western women dealing with very difficult circumstances....but then, so was Katherine in Blowing on Dandelions, and she handed it with such grace. I get very connected to my characters and have a hard time letting them go and moving on to another book, so you asked me a hard one, LOL! As you can see, it's hard to pick just one! Thanks!

  6. I love going along the tour and seeing all the posts and questions! What a great tour, Miralee!
    Are there questions you have not been asked yet?
    I saw the picture of you and your grandchild on FB today! How many grandchildren do you have? martha(at)lclink(dot)com

    1. Hi Martha, great to see you here! You asked two that I haven't been asked yet, LOL! There are still lots of unanswered questions people haven't asked. Yes, I have one grandchild, the little girl you saw, Kate...she's 10 months old now. Then my husband has 3 grandchildren from the daughter we didn't know he had until she was 18 (her story is what gave me the idea for the book The Other Daughter). Thanks for the great question!

  7. I want to read Dandelion and Buttercups! Miralee, do you have a favorite line in either one?

    1. Hi Caryl, yes, I have several lines that really resounded with me, but I'm sorry to say I don't have them memorized or in a place where I can easily find them. I need to do that, don't I? Put my fav lines from each book in a file. What a great idea! But I can tell you they were things Aunt Wilma said to Beth about how God looks at her that had to do with accepting herself. Thank you so much for the excellent question, and forgive me for not being more specific.

  10. Hey Miralee and Melina . Miralee out of all the books you have written which one would you say is your favorite ?

    1. Hi Liz, it's so hard to choose because different ones have different meaning to me. I KNOW the Lord instructed me to write The Other Daughter and Blowing on Dandelions, so those hold a very special place in my heart. I love the old west/western themes/action/adventure and the heroines in LFY in Tombstone and LFY in Sundance, WY, so those are my favorite Love Finds You books....see my quandary, LOL! Thanks!

  11. Hi, again, Miralee! You do get around, virtually, without having to pack your bags. I am curious to know about when you interview someone for your research, how do you record the interview?
    Thank you for your abundance of answers.
    Blessings, Janice jsmithg(at)hotmail(dot)com

    1. Hi Janice, since I'm not writing medical or sci-fi or detective/suspense type novels, I really don't do the kind of research when I need to interview a live person. The type I do is visiting museums, historical societies, old landmarks, cemeteries, reading historical archives, etc. I did interview one historian but mostly I took tons of notes, and I was very fortunate in that he'd compiled a lot of historical facts in a book about the town where my story was set. Thanks for the great question!
