Seeds of Summer by Deborah Vogts ~ 5 stars

About the book:
SHE MUST ABANDON HER DREAMS. Former rodeo queen Natalie Adams has big troubles. When her father dies unexpectedly, she's saddled with the family ranch and two half-siblings, whose mother abandoned them years ago and is long believed dead. A handsome young pastor, Jared Logan, repeatedly comes to her rescue. But Natalie's strong independent nature wants nothing to do with his help.

HE MUST FULFILL HIS. Jared, a city boy do-gooder, has dreams of his own. He's ready to solve Natalie's problems, as well as any problems in his church. But his congregation resists change, and the more deeply involved he becomes with Natalie's family, the more he questions his life as a clergyman. Jared's enthusiasm turns to fear as he contemplates failure.

WILL THEY FACE THEIR FEARS . . . AND FIND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE? When Natalie's stepmother unexpectedly shows up with plans of her own, Natalie must choose between the responsibilities of caring for a family or following her own desires. Love, forgiveness, and faith mingle together in the breathtaking world of the Kansas Flint Hills prairie.

My review:
This is going to be a short review, but that in no way reflects my opinion about this book.

I'll just say that I really enjoyed this book. The characters were realistic, the storyline was engaging, and in the end I was very pleased with how everything turned out. :) I would definitely recommend this book and the first one in this series.

I can't wait to read this one! I've always been tomboyish, so it will be fun to learn more about the Rodeo Queen world. :)

I have read several great reviews on Seeds of Summer and can't wait to read the book. I discovered Christian fiction about 3 mos ago and love it. No skipping or skimming has to be done while reading.
Thanks for the great review.
