From The Vault by Laurie Alice Eakes -- Better Than Gold

Heartsong Presents

Better Than Gold

H S #791

ISBN: 9781602600485

Lily is tired of her one-horse town. Lily Reese can't wait to escape Browning City, Iowa. She's sure she'll be happier in the big city, if only she can save enough money to get there. But then Ben Purcell rides into town, threatening not only Lily's place of residence and growing sense of family, but her safety and peace of mind, as well. And Ben has every intention of sticking around and becoming a small-town guy. How can Lily even consider the feelings he evokes in her? Rumors of a long-lost cache of gold bring danger swirling around them, but Lily and Ben find themselves on a quest for something more. Will releasing their plans and desires bring heartache or a reward they had never imagined?

Do you consider yourself a 'small town girl or guy' or a big city person--not based on where you live but what your heart longs for?


  1. Gotta go with small town living. The big cities are for visiting, if you have a really good reason.

  2. Linda pegged it. I love small town living. Big cities...I go there to visit the museums. :)

  3. I've always lived in small towns but worked in a bigger city and in my heart, I'm a city girl!

    Now I don't know if I'd actually want to live there but I love all the activities a city has to offer, theater, concerts, museums...

  4. I consider myself a small town girl....but...if you'd asked me this question a gazillion years ago, I would have longed for the big city because, well, I didn't know any better! I'd assumed glitz and glamour big-city life was what I needed to spice up my boring existence! I enjoyed this book and I reveiewed it on my blog a long time ago! The young heroine reminded me of myself - based on her desire to move away to a different environment, leaving her home!

  5. Definitely a small-town girl (although I don't live too far from Atlanta!). ~ Blessings, Patti Jo :)
