    Unruly schoolchildren, three suitors, and too many things to do 
    It is Ruth Brookings’ first year teaching school. She wants to instill a love of learning into them, but between the unruly children and persistence of an unwanted suitor, she is overwhelmed. 
    To make matters worse, when Ruth prays for guidance, she’s answered with a challenge instead: To encourage her friend, Sheriff Micah Carson to find a wife—whether he wants one or not. When she does, he starts to avoid her and the shy teacher wonders if she just lost one of her only friends. 
    Will Micah start talking to her again? Can God teach her to trudge through the valley and still trust Him when things get tough? 
    Although this is the fourth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. Most of the characters were introduced in the first three books of the series, so some character development will be missing in this book, but not so much you can't enjoy the book itself.

    Excerpt: 
    Ruth rested her books precariously on her left arm as she put the key in the lock. The lock snapped and she gripped the doorknob. As she turned the knob, a boot thumped on the bottom step behind her. Ruth spun around and her books crashed to the porch as she faced the intruder. 
    “I’m sorry. Did I startle you?” Micah asked. 
    Ruth put a hand to her heart as if making sure it hadn’t left her chest. “Yes, you did.” She laughed nervously. “You need to stop practicing your Indian walking.” 
    Micah grinned sheepishly. “Sorry about that. I thought you saw me. You must’ve been lost in thought under that big hat of yours.” 
    Ruth huffed. “I’ll have you know this hat was specially made for me by Joshua. He knew I didn’t like bonnets because they shade the sides of my face too much.” 
    Micah smiled as he bent down and helped Ruth pick up her books and papers. “I know. I just like teasing you about it. How’d the first day of school go?” 
    “After a minor problem at the beginning, the day went very well.” 
    “A minor problem?” Micah asked as he picked up the last book and straightened. “This wouldn’t involve my son, would it?” 
    Ruth cleared her throat. “Um, yes, it would.” 
    Micah frowned. “What did he do this time?” 
    “Nothing needing discipline, just a little correction. And it wasn’t just him; John Jenkins, and Clem and Chancy Lancaster were also to blame. I took care of it and hopefully most of their classroom antics will be avoided by splitting them all up during class.” 
    Micah raised his right eyebrow. “I hope so. Let me know if Jeremiah causes too much trouble.” 
    Ruth looked up at him with a smile. “I plan to. Just like I plan to tell any of the parents if their child gets to be too much trouble.” 
    Micah chuckled. “Thank you, Miss Brookings. I’d better get back to the office to make sure Obadiah isn’t getting into trouble.” He handed her the stack of books and papers. 
    “Your deputy is causing trouble?” 
    “Nah. He just likes to think he’s the sheriff and do some of the paperwork. Then he messes it up so much I end up spending twice as long fixing it than I would if I’d done it to begin with.” 
    Ruth laughed and shook her head. “Then you’d better get back fast. I have school assignments to figure out anyway, so I have plenty to work on tonight as well.” 
    Micah tipped his hat at her. “Talk to you again soon, Miss Brookings.” 
    “Same to you, Mr. Carson.”

    USA TODAY Bestseller! 
    “Incredible storytelling and intricately drawn characters. You won’t want to miss Twilight at Blueberry Barrens.” —Brenda Novak, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author 
    “I need you to keep these girls safe . . .” 
    Kate Mason has devoted herself to caring for her family’s blueberry barrens. But after her fields stop producing fruit, she’s forced to come up with alternative ways to make a living. 
    Renting out the small cottage on her property seems an obvious choice, but it won’t be enough. When entrepreneur Drake Newham shows up looking not only for a place to rent but also for a nanny for his two nieces, it’s almost too good to be true. And maybe it is—because Drake brings with him dangerous questions about who might be out to kill his family. 
    The more time Kate spends with Drake and the girls, the more difficult it becomes to hide her attraction to him. But a family crisis isn’t exactly the ideal time to pursue a romance. 
    Meanwhile, Kate learns that her uncle—in prison for murder—has escaped. Add to that a local stalker who won’t leave her alone, and Kate is looking over her shoulder at every turn. With threats swirling from multiple directions, she wonders if her blueberry fields will ever flourish again . . . or if this twilight is her last. 
    Set on the beautiful coast of Maine, Twilight at Blueberry Barrens brings together suspense, romance, and the hope that one day new life will come again. 
    “The tension, both suspenseful and romantic, is gripping, reflecting Coble’s prowess with the genre.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

    Religion among the lively and imaginative Greeks took a different form from that of the Aryan race in India or Persia. However the ideas of their divinities originated in their relations to the thought and life of the people, their gods were neither abstractions nor symbols. They were simply men and women, immortal, yet having a beginning, with passions and appetites like ordinary mortals. They love, they hate, they eat, they drink, they have adventures and misfortunes like men,--only differing from men in the superiority of their gifts, in their miraculous endowments, in their stupendous feats, in their more than gigantic size, in their supernal beauty, in their intensified pleasures. It was not their aim "to raise mortals to the skies," but to enjoy themselves in feasting and love-making; not even to govern the world, but to protect their particular worshippers,--taking part and interest in human quarrels, without reference to justice or right, and without communicating any great truths for the guidance of mankind.
    The religion of Greece consisted of a series of myths,--creations for the most part of the poets,--and therefore properly called a mythology. Yet in some respects the gods of Greece resembled those of Phoenicia and Egypt, being the powers of Nature, and named after the sun, moon, and planets. Their priests did not form a sacerdotal caste, as in India and Egypt; they were more like officers of the state, to perform certain functions or duties pertaining to rites, ceremonies, and sacrifices. They taught no moral or spiritual truths to the people, nor were they held in extraordinary reverence. They were not ascetics or enthusiasts; among them were no great reformers or prophets, as among the sacerdotal class of the Jews or the Hindus. They had even no sacred books, and claimed no esoteric knowledge. Nor was their office hereditary. They were appointed by the rulers of the state, or elected by the people themselves; they imposed no restraints on the conscience, and apparently cared little for morals, leaving the people to an unbounded freedom to act and think for themselves, so far as they did not interfere with prescribed usages and laws. The real objects of Greek worship were beauty, grace, and heroic strength. The people worshipped no supreme creator, no providential governor, no ultimate judge of human actions. They had no aspirations for heaven and no fear of hell. They did not feel accountable for their deeds or thoughts or words to an irresistible Power working for righteousness or truth. They had no religious sense, apart from wonder or admiration of the glories of Nature, or the good or evil which might result from the favor or hatred of the divinities they accepted...

    “Hunter is a master romance storyteller. Falling Like Snowflakes is charming and fun with a twist of mystery and intrigue. A story that’s sure to endure as a classic reader favorite.” —Rachel Hauck, New York Times bestselling authorThe first book in the Summer Harbor series from bestselling author Denise Hunter! 
    Speeding north through rural Maine, Eden Martelli wonders how her life came to this—on the run with her mute five-year-old son dozing fitfully in the passenger seat. When a breakdown leaves them stranded in Summer Harbor, Eden has no choice but to stay put through Christmas . . . even though they have no place to lay their heads. 
    Beau Callahan is a habitual problem solver—for other people anyway. He left the sheriff’s department to take over his family’s Christmas tree farm, but he’s still haunted by the loss of his parents and struggling to handle his first Christmas alone. 
    When Eden shows up looking for work just as Beau’s feisty aunt gets out of the hospital, Beau thinks he’s finally caught a break. Eden is competent and dedicated—if a little guarded—and a knockout to boot. But, as he soon finds out, she also comes with a boatload of secrets. 
    Eden has been through too much to trust her heart to another man, but Beau is impossible to resist, and the feeling seems to be mutual. As Christmas Eve approaches, Eden’s past catches up to her. 
    Beau will go to the ends of the earth to keep her safe. But who’s going to protect his heart from a woman who can’t seem to trust again?
