The Blessed Beyond Measure book was the second installment in the Brides of Blessings series, by Kari Trumbo. The Blessed Beyond Measure book was an entertaining story filled with hardship, compassion, temptation, friendship, love, and healing.

Victor Abernathy cannot hide his secret desire for Lenora.
He’s tasked with protecting her on the long voyage to the Gold-rush town of Blessings, California. She dodges him, hates his advances at every turn. It’s his gambler’s nature to win, to never gi

Kari Trumbo has written another amazing book, with more wonderful characters. This is the second book in the new Brides of Blessings series, and it is a lovely addition. I love seeing the town grow around me as I watch these characters live their lives, endure hardships, find their footing, and fall in love. Truly, this book made me smile so much my cheeks hurt. Who knew that sweet books would be such a draw for me--but I am loving this series so far, and I cannot wait to see what the other auth ...more

This one will keep you guessing and wondering. I loved the back and forth between them and wondering when they would end up together. They were meant to be together and just needed Atherton Winslet to work his magic. I felt so bad for her mother because she just couldn't take it. When Victor received that letter I held my breath because I had no clue what it would say. I cheered at the end.

Lenora was not going to be held back and wasn't going to let anything stop her. I loved her right away beca

This story had all the elements of a great romance: a charming heroine, lovable-but-flawed hero, and a sweet romance with plenty of romantic moments to keep me interested. I was absorbed into the story from the very first page. This is the first full length novel I've read by Kari, and I will definitely be reading more from her!

This is a wonderful tale. It covers subjects like your worth before man and God, faithfulness to your family, the evils of rumors, the value of a hard days labor, and through it all is a beautiful redemption story of love and healing! I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of this sweet historical romance series!

A sweet story of love, healing and overcoming hardships!

Blessed Beyond Measure is another sweet western romance in the Brides of Blessings Series. This is a story that shows a person can change their ways for love, especially when the right person comes along. You learn so many different lessons in this story – honesty, forgiveness, love, respect, healing and even how to overcome the hardships that we all face in life.

A delightfully written story with romance, new beginnings and a happy-ending

I liked this second story in the Brides of Blessings. I have never read anything by Kari Trumbo before and I was impressed with her writing style. The heroine, Lenora Farnsworth, has trouble deciding weather to believe the hero, Victor Abernathy, has true feelings for her and is willing to put aside his past behavior of gambling and womanizing. They traveled from Boston to Blessings, California via boat to make a new life for themselves and Lenora's family. Victor was hired to protect Lenora on ...more

I love this new series. The town of Blessings is healing for those who come here. Leonora Farnsworth comes with her family when they move here to start a business. Victor Abernathy travels with the Farnsworths as protection for Leonora and her Mother. He wants to return to England. This town is just the balm they both need to fulfill their dreams.
Victor is used to having what he wants and needs from women. He has never met the likes of Leonora. She is strong, has grit and has made a huge impact

Vincent lost his way when he gambled away his family’s fortune back in England and he thought he wouldn’t ever be able to go back until he could earn enough to restore it. I wanted to shake him at times in his treatment of Lenora. He assumed it was only a matter of time before she fell into his arms and went with him to England once he restored his family’s fortune. Lenora had to deal with her mentally ill mother, feed her family, and help her father with his law business all without thanks and ...more

Little love story

I enjoyed the book. The main characters’ back and forth was entertaining. However, the secondary characters seemed to do ‘out of character’ things in order to make the story more dramatic, and that annoyed me.

Although Christian, it wasn’t in your face, preachy. I would recommend for a relaxing evening read
Rosa Cline
Very nice ending

3 1/2 star
Beginning was slow and just about put the book down. But I really enjoy this author and her books so I kept reading. Was very glad I did.

Storyline became interesting and didn’t want to put down. And I can feel comfortable with recommend it to my preteen advanced reading friends

Back in time

I really enjoyed the story and the characters.I WOULD have liked a bit more backstory,but I need to read book 1. Couldn't put it down. I am writer too. Ghost wrote one. Love your writing style. When you gave the men emotions,you put the story back in th frame of history it belonged. Very authentic!
