4–Count Them–4 Chances to Win & Lyn Reviews Author Janet Tronstad’s Latest

First of all, I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving and recall how the Pilgrims sacrificed to gain religious freedom. I remember visiting my son’s kindergarten class years ago. The teacher talked about Thanksgiving but never mentioned who the Pilgrims were thanking. So I told the children who it was. (I don’t need to tell you, do I?)

I find the politically correct expurgated version of history trying at times. But often just laughable. How ridiculous to stay that the Pilgrims were thankful but not to whom. {Shaking my head!}

Last Friday I posted a blog about my Thanksgiving feast and prep. Plus I included my Slow Cooker Stuffing recipe. Here’s the link


In addition, I’d like to invite you to http://community.harlequin.com/content/harlequin-community-thanksgiving-wall

Now for my book review!
Sleigh Bells for Dry Creek (Love Inspired (Large Print))Sleigh Bells for Dry Creek (Love Inspired by Janet Tronstad

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all, I must admit that I count Janet Tronstad as a friend. But I can in all honesty say that I truly enjoyed this book. The theme is forgiving ourselves and others, one that many of us must learn over and over. I love the town of Dry Creek, Montana, (Janet’s trademark)and it’s colorful, genuine and sometimes amusing inhabitants. And Janet KNOWS how to write a rugged cowboy hero. A sweet hometown girl, a cowboy, and Christmas–what more could a reader ask for? Don’t miss a heart-warming holiday story.

    We already had our Thanksgiving meal, and it was very quiet this year, just my Mom and brother(only sibling) and his wife. Different from last year when we had neighbors in, and my sister-in-law’s uncle and aunt stopped in unexpectedly (they live 5 hours away). And then we usually look forward to being in Arizona and enjoying Thanksgiving again (we have Thanksgiving every day) but for the past couple of years health issues have kept us away until December. Thanks Lyn and Janet

    Me too, Melody! Sage, nutmeg, cinnamon!

    Happy Holidays!

  4. StrongWomen says:

    I figured you wouldn’t be celebrating down under. And Janet was very generous with her books. And in general I think!
    Have a good day-I’ll eat some pumpkin pie in your honor (teasing)!

  5. ausjenny says:

    Dont enter me for Janets book as I have it and have read it.
    we dont have Thanksgiving here so will not be eating the meal.
    I agree political correctness is very much a crock.

  6. StrongWomen says:

    Great to hear from you too. Hope your turkey’s come out golden and juicy!!

  7. Tiffany says:

    I will be feeding ten this year. My family of five and my brother and his family are coming! They are a family of five. I am really excited as I have not seen them in over four years. I have much to be thankful for. I hope you have a super Thanksgiving.

  8. Paula Osborne says:

    Happy Thanksgiving Lyn, wonderful that you spoke up and told the children whom the Pilgrims were thanking. I wonder how they teach nowadays, I am sure it much different then when I went to school in the 50’s. I did not get this book of Janets yet but love all of her “Dry Creek series”. thanks for sharing.
