Does anyone know if these books have to be read in order? Or can I just read them as I get them?

Hi Stephanie,

I have a few of them and I'm pretty sure you can read them in whatever order you want. All the books have different characters, so I don't think that should be an issue.

Merry Christmas!

They aren't a series in the sense that they are connected. It's sort of like Heartsong or Love Inspired series. They're all by different authors and entirely independent of each other. :)

Thanks, I wasn't sure. I hate reading a book or two and later finding out they were in the midle of the series or something like that.

And interstingly, some of them are current (meaning in the 2000's) and some of them are historical fiction.  It's really a great "series" in the sense that they are independent of each other, but are several popular authors working toward the same goal:  solid Christian fiction with good story-lines, yet are easy to read books.

I've seen them at Walmart.  Are these books good?

probably hit and miss since they're by different authors. I've only read one so far but plan to read more - north pole alaska is the one I read and I'm mixed on it..was fairly light except for what I thought was an unnecessary tear jerker scene involving someone else.still kinda ticked she did that but oh well. I have some others reserved at the library.

I thought Love Finds You in Liberty Indiana by Melanie Dobson was good. It's a historical novel, set during the Civil War. The story is about a Quaker family helping out with the Underground Railroad.

I've only read Love Finds You in Poetry Texas by Janice Hanna and I loved it! I have several more to read and a couple on my wish list.
