I would like to order some Christian romance books for my mother-in-law who loves Vickie McDonough.  I have never read any Christian romance books myself so am somewhat clueless as to how I go about finding some good authors.  She particularly likes prairie romance.  I was wondering if anyone could make recommendations.   Any suggestions would be apppreciated.

Thanks,

Nancy

I love prairie romances!

Janette Oke's Love Comes Softly series is a good one. As well as her Women of the West series (they are all stand alones that are included under the same series title).

Lori Wick's series: A Place Called Home, Big Sky Dreams, and Tucker Mills. I haven't read them but she has two other series that I think deal with the west Californians and Rocky Mountain Memories.

Lauraine Snelling's Red River books and the subsequent series from those are about Norwegians (right? Or is it Swedish? I've only read a couple so far so I'm blanking on it right now) living on the Dakota frontier.

Catherine Palmer has a series called A Town Called Hope that I loved.

Other authors whose books are set in the west on the prairie: Cathy Marie Hake, Kelly Eileen Hake, Mary Connealy, etc.

I hope this helps! smiley

Amee,

Thanks so much for all your recommendations.  I am going to see if they have any of these available through PBS.  I ordered the only 2 Vickie McDonough's that she hasn't read last night and was now out of ideas!

No problem! I'm glad to help. I love those books so much, so I'm glad to recommend them for someone else to read and enjoy. laugh
