How will Audrey and her fellow schoolmarms stay afloat when a flood threatens their small Texas town?

Typically, Thunder Ridge, Texas, is dry as a bone. But Audrey Pride has arrived under a storm cloud, one that is deluging the shocked community with weeks of relentless, drenching rain. With travel in and out of town rendered impossible, there is much important work for her

Eehhh. Well, I made it through. I wish the whole book had been as interesting as the part about caring for the wagon train victims...that was when the characters got really interesting. And the ending was good.
I felt like most of the faith part did not fully gel with the story. And some of the speech or thoughts of the characters were really out of character for the time period. A few of the comments would have been modern in the 20s.
And, being a history buff, an imagined route from Texas to Col

Three Times Blessed is the second novel of the Belles of Timber Creek and picks up right where the first novel, Twice Loved left off. I am looking forward to the third book in the series One True Love with much anticipation.

This book contains a love story that is tragic and common in the old west, but still just as beautiful. The particular book in the series contains a lot of death and sadness. But it also contains hope and blessings. Through the good occurrences and the bad, the characters ar
This book was a continuation of "Twiced Loved" and it was okay, but Cooper's complaints against Josh got old and Willows concussion was oddly handled. The actually accident was relayed by hearsay and her condition hovered in the background of most of the story.

We catch up with Audrey as she and Copper Wilson, her close friend and fellow schoolmarm, arrive in Thunder Ridge, Texas, in the midst of the biggest rainstorm the town has ever seen. Their arrival is a catastrophe in and of itself! It sets the pace for the rest of the book. Audrey and Copper are coming to stay with their best friend, Willow Madison, who is also a schoolmarm, until they leave in the fall to start teaching at their very own schools, in the surrounding cities. Audrey receives some ...more

I ♥ Lori Copeland but I didn't this book. This was really a disappointment to me. Its the second book in her Belles of Timber Creek trilogy and is Audrey's story, but Audrey rarely seemed to be the focus of the book. Instead we have a continuation of Willow and Tucker's romance, Copper meeting a handsome wagon train leader whom she despises and a wagon train sickness that ends up killing half the train. The book is filled with death and sickness and never ending rain plaguing the area. I didn't ...more

The first book of the series is great, then book two almost every secondary character from book one dies. The uncle has a stroke somewhere, then the niece gets kicked in the head by horse, while the town is suffering from a wagon trains, outbreak of an unknown deathly illness. Uncle does die, while niece is still unconscious, Rich man books ones hero cannot marry after all dies, before he rescues the mansion, so of course that is sold out from under them. bought by the wagon master, who is the h ...more

Being the second book in a series, I tend to compare it to the first book which I really enjoyed. I enjoyed this book slightly less because the author went from telling the story from multiple POVs in the first book to only telling the story from one person's POV. I felt that a bit odd. I like to read events form both love-interests' POVs, so I missed that in this book.

The job Audrey ends up taking bothered me a bit, as it did her. I see the profession in a totally different light now. I guess i

This was Audrey's story but includes lots about her friends Willow (book 1) and Copper (book 3). She has her heart set on Eli, one of the Gray cousins. He is still grieving over the death of his wife while he was away fighting in the Civil War. But his young son has taken a liking to Audrey and would like nothing better than to have her living with them. Lots of humor in this second of the "Belles of Timber Creek series". But also some very serious situations when an unknown illness hits a wagon ...more

Well, book number two in this series by Lori Copeland moved very quickly. I read this book in 1 day. It was an entertaining story, I liked the extra things that came into this community, such as the stranded wagon train outside of town with many members falling ill. Not that I want anyone to fall ill, I am just saying that this story line was a bit more exciting then the first book. I do have to say that book number two has ended quite abruptly and I am tahnkful that I have book number 3 in this ...more

So, it finally started to rain in Thunder Ridge at the end of Twice Loved and the rain continued for the whole entire second rained for over a month straight! The poor people went form a drought to a flood. Did I mention these books are set at the end of the Civil War, and it's about 3 women that fought in the war? Anyway, one got a job as a mortuary's assistance and a train wagon came through with an epidemic and all these people died. So sad, but again the author put in some great sc ...more

Excellent book! Three Times Blessed had so much action, the second of Belles of Timber Creek series. The main character has to go to work in a funeral home, the town that has been dry forever gets bombarded with rain for days on end, a wagon train stops during the storm with illness and people dying, so much going on that this story held my attention completely! Can't wait to read the final book!

A great continuation from the first book. The love story was a little predictable but fun. Also the amount of death and dying and sickness got a little old by the end. Overall a great book and I am ready to read the 3rd one when it comes out.

Love Lori, she's always been a favorite of mine. This series didn't fail me! Funny and so down to earth which is part of Ms. Copelands charm.
Second book of the series. Nice light read. Amusing at times.

Better than the first. By the end I was looking foward to reading the last book in the series.

I need 1/2 stars. It was okay.
I eventually got into this and enjoyed it. Not the most well-written, though, and I probably won't read any more of the series.

Great follow up to the drama and goings on in with the characters. I am looking forward to the last book in the series to answer some questions that rose up between characters.
