LDStorymakers this week! My daughter and I are headed to Provo, Utah this week for the LDStorymakers Writer's Conference.

To pass the time while traveling, I picked up Shanna Hatfield's series Grass Valley Cowboys. Living in Oregon, I love that she sets her stories nearby and references places I'm familiar with. Although Ms. Hatfield is a master of head-hopping, I still love her romances and enjoy getting to know what seems like an entire community. Every book has a theme: plan, romance, love, falling, etc. and each chapter begins with a quote based on the theme. The first book in the series: The Cowboy's Christmas Plan starts the reader off introducing the Thompson brothers. They are all fun reads. Here's the first lines of the first book:
