A bit of romantic inspiration

by Paul Mastin
October 25, 2013

I'm not usually one to pick up a romance novel, but Timothy Lewis's Forever Friday was offered through Waterbrook/Multnomah's Blogging for Books program, so it had the magic word "free." Plus, the author is a Texan and the novel is set in Texas,... [Read on]
