About the Book

Book:  Rocky Mountain Redemption
Author: Lisa J. Flickinger
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release Date: May 5, 2020

A Rocky Mountain logging camp may be just the place to find herself.
To escape the devastation caused by the breaking of her wedding engagement, Isabelle Franklin joins her aunt in the Rocky Mountains to feed a camp of lumberjacks cutting on the slopes of Cougar Ridge. If only she could out run the lingering nightmares.
Charles Bailey, camp foreman and Stony Creek’s itinerant pastor, develops a reputation to match his new nickname — Preach.  However, an inner battle ensues when the details of his rough history threaten to overcome the beliefs of his young faith.
Amid the hazards of camp life, the unlikely friendship growing between the two surprises Isabelle. She’s drawn to Preach’s brute strength and gentle nature as he leads the ragtag crew toiling for Pollitt’s Lumber. But when the ghosts from her past return to haunt her, the choices she will make change the course of her life forever—and that of the man she’s come to love.

 I really liked "Rocky Mountain Redemption"  by Lisa J. Flickinger. It deals with a subject that is really not pleasant but the book is definitely a clean read with no swearing or bedrooms scenes in detail.

I like that the preacher has a not so clean background because it shows that God can and does use anyone that allows Him to use them. I also appreciate that the preacher still shows that he is human and not perfect because he is a preacher.

I have a few questions about the fate of a few characters and hoping book 2 answers them.

This book clearly points out that just because we sometimes make a wrong choice, other's actions are their responsibilities and not our blame.

I really recommend this book, I think readers who don't usually like the Christian genre would enjoy this novel. Yes, it is Christian but they is only a short couple of pages that actually shares the gospel, by using Romans 8:23.

I received a contemporary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

More from Lisa

I have a confession to make. I’m a square dancer, a real live square dancer who do-si-dos and allemande-lefts my way around a square every Thursday night. And lest you think it’s a room full of eighty year olds, our youngest dancer is a mere twenty-four.
It was on the dance floor I first met Larry. Logger Larry, the Paul Bunyan like soul who regaled me with tales of chopping trees in the Rocky Mountains. He told stories about grizzlies who hunted men for their next meal, brawls in the bunkhouse only the hardy could survive, and life threatening axe injuries when they had to carry the wounded through the forest for miles.
Larry’s stories provided a great background for a romantic novel and sent me on a mission to research late 1800’s logging camps. It’s at Pollitt’s Lumber, in 1898, where we meet our hero and heroine, Preach and Isabelle, and join their cautious journey toward love. It’s also where we meet a ragtag bunch of lumberjacks whose antics would get on anyone’s last nerve.
I fell in love with the characters of Rocky Mountain Redemption as they tromped onto the pages, and I’m thrilled to introduce them to you in Book One of the Rocky Mountain Revival Series.
Dear reader, enjoy!
