"The Ninth Inning" is a very cute novella about the town's boutique owner and the local cowboy. Andy wasn't looking for love, had actually broken off one of the best relationships she had ever had, but Lawrence knew deep down that their love was meant to last. Through a little engineering and a few smooth moves, can this love be reunited?

"Ten Days in Town" was a different short of novella, it is not the "typical" Three Rivers story. We find Sandy, the pancake house owner wishing one moment she

Fun clean romance. I love the author's writing. Always a nice mix of work, romance, and the setting is described so well. Always a magical read for me. Characters in need of healing, trust, and friendship, along with the romance. Hardworking, honest characters with great chemistry makes for a great read for me personally. Thanks for another great read!

This book contains 4 short stories that are all very good and each deserve their own review.

The Ninth Inning: This is the story of Andrea and Lawrence. This story is sometimes humorous and sometimes its a little hard on the heart. It's going to take humility to make this relationship work. I've been waiting for Andrea's story, ever since I've started reading the Three River series.

Ten Days in Town: This is Sandi's and Tad's story. Sandi is the owner of the cafe and Tad is her brother's friend. T

I love this book of romance stories! It was so much fun to read four different novellas set in the same wonderful place, Three Rivers Ranch. I enjoyed all four stories and would be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. The first one highlights a lonely young woman who owns a clothes boutique. When she gets her first online order, it's from the ranch her former beau works at. She is afraid to see him after her previous behavior of falsely accusing him of cheating on her, and breaking up with him. It's ...more

Great collection of stories. As you experience Three Rivers Ranch and Courage Reins journey through following Gods will and their hearts.

The 9th Inning

Learning about another horseman, Lawrence, works for Courage Reines. After a year the girl and owner of the boutique in town apologized to him. Can Lawrence and Andy (Andrea) rekindle their romance with the help of the Three Rivers Ranch ladies?

I'm always a little conflicted about novellas because there isn't much time to develop the story but these did pretty well. It helped that in some of them the love interests knew each other previously so it wasn't insta-love and in the other, the story is over the course of more than a year so it wasn't a "we just met-let's get married" story either. But I thought it was a little weird that there was a public proposal knowing how mortified she was by the first one. I suppose the author meant to ...more

I need to preface this by saying that I am not a big fan of novella's as I find the stories too short to really get into, but when they are part of a series I do enjoy them more as I have already got to the know the town or characters. These four stories were sweet Christmas stories that help you get in the Christmas spirit. I really enjoyed the first two the most, probably because I had already met the main females in previous books. The other two stories I just didn't enjoy as much as I found ...more

This was very easy read. My only issue isn't really an issue with the book and the writing so much as with logistics.
It's sort of exciting to read about places I know. So, needless to say, I was excited to read stories about the small town of Three Rivers, Texas, which is about an hour away from me. However, it was hard to wrap my head around the fact the book put Three Rivers, Tx in the panhandle, which then hurt the references to "Texas summers" versus those of Oklahoma, 'cause there's not a

Liz Isaacson is without a doubt one of the best authors. This set of four stories takes place at Three River's Ranch which must have special powers of some kind because lost souls show up there and God works through the other people on the ranch to help set the lost person in the right direction. Everything is not smooth sailing all the time but with their faith in God, difficult situations are handled. Each story tells a different character's trials as they fall in love. Wonderful feel-good boo ...more

I love this writer. This book is a collection of four novellas. If you have read any of Liz's Three Rivers Range or Courage Reines series, some of the characters may be familiar. I love the way she will add a new staring character to the plot, put you still get to see what is going on with the old friends. I did not give this book a five, due to the novellas. I enjoyed them, but felt they were rushed in some places. Great read, would definitely recommend it.

I really enjoyed these 4 short stories with couples from the Three Rivers Ranch. This is the first book I've read in the series but I enjoyed them so much I plan to go back and read the others. With not having read the series, it sometimes got confusing on who people were when it would switch so quickly to another couple that hadn't been mentioned yet in this book but I worked through it and enjoyed it. Definitely recommend.

Works of Grace

Taryn & Kenny are great addition to the Three Rivers families. Kenny is a marine who still has battle scars. But then who doesn't. Taryn escapes to this town running from the big city. I love all the characters and how they reach out with outreached arms to show hope to the hopeless and rest to the weary. Still picking up the pieces these two discover patience and hope for a brighter future. Will it be with each other? Gotta read this!

Christmas in Three Rivers

This was a collection of short romance stories with a great cast of characters at Three Rivers, Texas. I really enjoyed reading about new romances that also included how people from previous romances and part of Three Rivers were doing. It was like going home to the family you love.

Just when you are not expecting it, love slips right in.

Loved the way the author showed how each woman had given up trying to find her "true one", but how God can bring that "one" to find you when the time is right. Each story shows a lesson in how necessary it is to rely on His wisdom in the timing of when it is right.

I liked the main story and then the short samples of books to read I just got into the 10 Days in Town story and really wanted to finish it and it is not in Liz's list. Drat.... The stories are good that all revolve around various ones that live in a small town called Three Rivers. Each one are good that I read in the back of the main story. They are good clean goodreads

Enjoyed updates

The first two syyories come together two quick and not as smooth. The last two are more sweet and believable and they also provide such fun updates of almost everyone from The previous books. I loved getting to see how each of those stories had progressed. I liked the slower timeline of Taryn and Kenny very nice.

This is a collection of the next 4 books in this series (9-12). Wonderful additions to this series. This is a western/country themed romance series with a nice clean content. Each book is about a different resident of the town of Three Rivers and they all blend together nicely. I would recommend this entire series for all.

I Love this series! I don't think I will ever get enough of this loving and giving family. Liz Isaacson has completely embraced God and shares with her readers all the ways He is here for us.

Thank you for bringing endless smiles and the warmth God fills our souls with ~

Christmas, a magical time, rings in love with these four stories. These charming tales of young love, second chance love, and more, show that love is not just a starry-eyed state for teens but something worth longing for, praying for, and working for.

This novella collection is of four short reads. They are very sweet and heartwarming. Love how the author builds on the three rivers series and you get a peak at all of the previous stories in each new one. Good clean Christian romance book highly recommend for anyone who's looking for a good book.

There's the perfect pull of emotions in these novellas. Christmas, a small town, cowboys, and love -- these really hit the right cord for me and I enjoyed them. I'll be reading more from Ms Isaacson!

Three Rivers Christmas

It was fun to read four different stories of couples brought together by Three Rivers! A nice way to keep involved in the original characters and introduce the others that make up this big “family.” A worthwhile read for my holiday break!

I got bored with this book right away. I couldn't finish the story. It wasn't my kind of book. I would recommend this book to those who like country romance stories.

Four short stories were easy to fit into my busy retail holiday life this year. I loved being able to start and finish them in my limited reading time. They were fun to read and easy to love the characters.

Four enjoyable stories

These four stories are linked to a ranch outside the fictional town of Three Rivers in the Texas Panhandle. All are romances and while the characters are generally the same, they're also standalone tales. Thoroughly enjoyable.
