Start your review of Remembered (Fountain Creek Chronicles, #3)
After struggling through Rekindled and skipping Revealed, I picked this one up since I had won it through a GR giveaway, and felt bad at having left it on my shelf for so long. It was a very poignant, moving and beautiful story, and I am so glad I finally read it.

Set in beautiful Willow Springs, Colorado, this novel is more than just a romance. It's principally the wonderful story of a courageous woman's journey to self-discovery while searching for her missing father.

Definitely my favorite from this trilogy!

The audio version for this one is highly recommended, I was laughing a lot while listening to it and a lot of that had to do with the story line, but a big part was also the way the narrator read it. Her accent for Véronique was perfect and she gave life to all the characters. I truly didn't even feel like I was reading, it was like a performance!

The story was also somehow the best of the trilogy for me. Maybe that's because I really liked the main char

Again, a forgotten review. I really enjoyed the story, partly because characters from other books make reappearances, and partly because the premise is very engaging, with two sparring individuals forced to travel together because of joint rights to an essential wagon.
But book one is still my favorite, and the one I compulsively reread on a regular basis...

Jack Brennan and Veronique Girard's relationship is a mesmerizing love waltz; beautiful, steady and elegant; even in the midst of coarse, dangerous, and humiliating circumstances. Their clever and brilliant repartee is some of the finest ever written, with scene after scene worthy of repeat performances, which one reason that this story will be remembered, long after the covers are closed. ...more
What a fun book. The two main characters were so likable. I loved the way Véronique had no clue how spoiled she was until she became friends with people who had little but had a joy beyond what she’d ever known.

Véronique's father left Paris for America when she was just a small girl. His intent was to make enough money to send for them. But somehow that day never came. On her deathbed Véronique's mother had her promise to find her beloved papa last known to have lived in the mining town of Willo

A cute book to end the series Fountain Creek Chronicles. I do think that the first book in this series is by far the best one. Book 2 and 3 are good, but not great the way I found book 1.
The interesting thing about this series is how well Tamera links prior couples from books 1 and 2 throughout all the books. Occasionally their paths cross, they help one another, and such, which gives the readers a really fun glance back at characters that are missed from prior books.

This book hovers between three and fours stars. I really liked it. One of the things I have come to adore about Alexander is that she has guys noticing girls and girls noticing guys, yet she doesn't put her characters into compromising situations for the shock value. She is one of those rare authors who truly writes as if intimacy is a sacred thing. She doesn't avoid it, but she doesn' treat it like a flippant thing that even many christian authors do.

This book isn't one for younger readers, bu

This book was the best of the trilogy. Really in this series, each book was better and better. A companion whose only thing she has ever lacked was a father goes in a forced search to find him when it seems all else is lost to her. She finds everything that she was meant to find, even when she did not realize that is what she was looking for. This story tells of patience, learning God's will and His timing, love, loss, friendship, fears, and the gift of giving. It is all around a great read. ...more

4.4 -- I didn't think I would like this as much as the first two books in the series, since the main male character was only a very minor character in the second book, and he wasn't a character I was hoping for a book about. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed the first two. ...more

This was the third novel of Tamera Alexander's Fountain Creek Chronicles series. As was the case with the first two books of this series, Rekindled and Revealed, this book was solidly and overtly Christian, and the themes of identity and family were essential pieces of the plot. I loved the development of the characters and the humor alongside hard lessons of this story; however, it wasn't as amazing as the first novel of the series was. ...more

So this is the third of the Fountain Creek series and I must say my favorite of the three. I think that what happened is Alexander's writing skill evolved as she wrote the series. I loved the characters and felt like the plot was more straight forward. While this is part of a series I think all three could pass for stand alone - although it was kind of fun to get brief glances into the characters of past books and how they are faring.

This is the first book of Tamera Alexanders that I have read. I plan on acquiring #1 and #2 of Fountain Creek Chronicles. I enjoyed all the descriptive places and scenes of Paris painted throughout the story. I also enjoyed the author's weaving in all the details of the mining towns and surrounding area in the Rocky Mountains. But, what brought the whole story together was the dance back and forth between Veronique and Jack as they spent time traveling to different mining towns. As the story unf ...more

The story itself was good, but I didn't like this book as much as the previous two. The whole thing about the main character being French and using French words... usually I am into that kind of thing but for what ever reason it was more annoying than endearing to me this time. It was nice to have a connection with some of the character from previous books and have them brought up again like familiar friends, though somewhat different now that perspective has changed and a short time has passed. ...more
This was a sweet story, but I think I am a little tired of this author and her writing style. I should never read 6 books in a row by the same person. She does do a very good job of making each story unique and the love story's are so sweet. I like this one a lot. But the preaching got to me even tho this is not over the top. I liked Jack a lot but Veronique had to grow on me, but as she changed and grew I liked her better, good job by the author:} These are adult romance books, that are clean. ...more

Liked it.

Just goes to show, that sometimes, when you think something is impossible, God will show you that NOTHING is impossible for him.

Also that God has someone special intended for everyone, even if you're not looking for that person.

Though it’s been a while since I’ve read this one, I do remember it was my favorite of the series. I particularly remember some interesting freight wagon rides. My favorite part of this story was Véronique because of her determination and unique immigration perspective.

There was something special about this final book in the series. The characters really spoke to my heart. They were very realistic yet certainly had their flaws.

I was satisfied with the whole story and especially the ending. There were some really great lines that will stay with me. My favorite is this quote.

Of the books in the Fountain Creek Chronicles, I enjoyed Remembered the most. It was mostly because there was no automatic negative and vile assumption about the female lead by the male lead. Therefore, we didn't have to go down a path of overcoming their incorrect accusations and listening to their boorish inner monologue. Veronique and Jack are both wonderful characters to follow around. There is a lot of fun French culture and language incorporated into the story. We get to hear more of the i ...more

A satisfying conclusion to the Fountain Creek Chronicles. Got a little glimpse at characters from the first two books.
After the death of her beloved mother, Veronique reluctantly leaves France to search for her father who came to America to be a miner when she was very small. She has a general area to start her search, and the letters her dad had sent her mother. So she comes to Willow Springs to begin her search and goes to the livery looking for transportation.

I must confess that the blurb for this book really didn’t pique my interest at first. Having read the first two books in the series already (and loving them), I wanted to finish it on a good note. A French women in a young Colorado Territory seemed like an oxymoron from the beginning, but I vowed to myself that I would give it a try.

Oh, how glad was I?! This book was beautifully written, and the French aspects – the style, the language, the reflections on the country itself, even the heroine’s n

Ending to rushed......

This storyline does deserve five-star rating as I had tears more than once and I was also laughing out loud. The hero and heroine definitely had chemistry between them, the problem was the rushed ending..... I didn't rate the second book because I didn't know what happened in the end due to the rushed ending in that book, I found out they definitely did marry which wasn't clear too me until this issue. I would have loved too have read more of the reunion with papa and for s

Remembered is a great ending to the Fountain Creek series. I really enjoyed reading Veronique and Jack’s story. It is intricate and moving. I love how you meet Jack in the other books and feel like you “know” him before reading. I can’t believe it took me this long to read these books since Tamera is one of my favorite authors! Her books never disappoint!

Third/final book in Fountain Creek Cronicles series. I think this may have been my favorite of the three. They were all great stories. I enjoyed the setting and getting to know the characters - and the way the earlier stories from the series were touched upon. I will be reading other books by this author.

Remembered is unforgettable!

A sweet romance with a strong message of trust and faith, Remembered tells the story of people who lost everything in order to find God’s truth in their lives. From beginning to end, this book is filled with beautiful imagery and a strong portrayal of hope. We are never left alone. God always has a plan.
