Allison bats another homerun ;)

I LOVED this book!

I'm partial to Allison Pittman, because this special lady is who got me hooked on historicals years ago with her Crossroads of Grace series. Christian fiction prostitutes? You gotta read it to believe it! :)

I've always loved her stories and writing but Allison continues to grow and explore with each new novel. LILLIES IN MOONLIGHT is no exception, and wraps up the third in Allison's "baseball" books. (the stories are stand alone, not a connected series except for the random appearances of a fun side character)

Now, you might care nothing about baseball and I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of the sport. Its fun and all but I don't follow it. That said, I guarantee you that reading about baseball in a historical time period is - pun intended - "a whole 'nother ball game" ;)

LILLIES IN MOONLIGHT didn't focus on the ballgame thread as much as the threads of love, redemption, forgiveness, second chances, and finding the definiton of home. You'll fall in love with Cullen and Lilly just as the ex-baseball player/scarred war hero and Scarlet Lettered Flapper fall in love with each other!

Here's the back cover:

He’d lost his zest for life. She was just lost. Will they find the healing and love they long for?

After a roaring night on the town, fun-loving flapper Lilly Margolis, dazed and disoriented, twists her ankle and falls into the backyard of a wealthy family where the effects of the Great War—over for more than half a decade—are still endured. Inside the walls of the Burnside mansion, Cullen Burnside, a disillusioned and disfigured veteran, and his widowed mother, Betty Ruth, who daily slips a little further into dementia, lead a lonely existence … until Lilly.

Whimsical, lighthearted, and beautiful, she rejuvenates their sad, disconnected lives and blossoms in the light of their attention. But Lilly, like Cullen, is hiding from a painful past. And when Cullen insists on returning her to her faraway home, their budding attraction seems destined to die on the vine. The resulting road trip becomes a journey of self-discovery—but what will Cullen and Lilly find at journey’s end?

Sounds good doesn't it??

Don't miss your copy of this fantastic read releasing April 5th! Or better yet, hop on over to Amazon and pre-order!
