Blurb for Love Finds You in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin by Pam Meyers:

Will she lose her heart to the man who stole her job?

A young woman wants to work in a man’s world. It’s 1933, the height of the Big-Band era, and beautiful Lake Geneva is already well established as a summertime playground for Chicago’s elite. Local girl Meg Alden works at the town newspaper, but she aspires to be a reporter—a job given only to men. When a position opens up, Meg spies an opportunity to break into the business. That is, until Jack Wallace, the son of a big-city newspaper magnate, is hired instead. Jack is drawn to Meg and suggests they combine forces to uncover a local scandal. But how will Meg be able to work with the man who stole her job…and makes her pulse race?

Blurb for When the Morning Glory Blooms by Cynthia Ruchti:
 
Becky rocks a baby that rocked her world. Sixty years earlier, with her fiancé Drew in the middle of the Korean Conflict, Ivy throws herself into her work at a nursing home to keep her sanity and provide for the child Drew doesn’t know is coming. Ivy cares for Anna, an elderly patient who taxes Ivy’s listening ear until the day she suspects Anna’s tall tales are not the ramblings of dementia. They’re fragments of Anna’s disjointed memories of a remarkable life. Finding a faint thread of hope she can’t resist tugging, Ivy records Anna’s memoir, scribbling furiously after hours to keep up with the woman’s emotion-packed, grace-hemmed stories. Is Ivy’s answer buried in Anna’s past? Becky, Ivy, Anna–three women fight a tangled vine of deception in search of the blossoming simplicity of truth.
 
9781434765963_p0_v1_s260x420Bio for Ginger Garrett:

Blurb for Reign by Ginger Garrett:

REIGN is faithful to the biblical account, with startling evidence uncovered by archeologists woven into the story. From her marriage to Ahab until her death, Jezebel’s heart is unveiled—a heart capable of passion and pain, love and hate. Captivating storytelling reveals another side to a familiar story as Jezebel maneuvers through heated palace politics,pitting the goddess Asherah against Obadiah’s God, Yahweh. And it may cost her everything. 

Part Three of The Lost Loves of the Bible fiction series it’s ideally suited for historical fiction fans and anyone fascinated by the lives of biblical women. It’s as haunting as it is relevant—the story of a woman forced to choose between love and vengeance.
