My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs, Colorado (Millie’s Resolve)


Title:  My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs, Colorado (Millie’s Resolve)

Author:  Rebecca Jepson

Pages:  256

Year:  2018

Publisher:  Barbour Books

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

Each novel in the “My Heart Belongs” series is a stand-alone with unique tales, characters, faith and romance.  The books in the series are as follows:  My Heart Belongs in Fort Bliss, Texas; My heart Belongs in the Superstition Mountains; My Heart Belongs in Ruby City, Idaho; My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island; My Heart Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley; My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah; My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls, New York; My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California, with the latest being My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Each book is published by Barbour and written by various talented authors.  Therefore, readers can pick any of the above titles and delve right into a wonderfully captivating story.  I should tell you that two more books will be added to the series this summer and winter.

In the tale I just finished, set in the year 1888, a young lady named Millie is learning how to be a nurse.  Millie believes she has left her past on the East Coast and has come to start afresh in Colorado.  She hopes the pain of the past doesn’t rear its ugly head, but alas it isn’t meant to be or is it?  John Drexler moved his mother from a smoky town to the mountains in hopes she will be more comfortable and less sickly with her asthma.

What neither character sees is that Millie and John might be meant to have a future together.  If Millie can care for his mother without the belittling the woman spews on Millie or if John can keep his brother taking care of his responsibilities without running off and leaving others in a mess.  Here is another book that I thoroughly enjoyed and easily got lost in while pulling for what I hoped would be a perfect ending.

If you are looking for a book with just the right flavor of faith and romance, not too long and not too short, and at the end you sigh with satisfaction, then look no further.  These are books to read, share with others and then grab the next one when it is released.  I hope you can catch up before the last two books are published, but even if not, read and thoroughly enjoy this one!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
