  1. I own all her books! Keep hoping a new one would be out soon! I have my friends loving her books. I like to re-read them! She is the best!!!

  2. I’ve only read the Claybornes’ Brides (Rose Hill) series and I absolutely loved them. I re-read from time to time, even though I rarely reach for books over 300 pages. They’re that good! I’m anticipating other works by Julie Garwood are just as good but I don’t know where to start. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    1. You need to read all of them. They are all fantastic. Just begin with the next series. I can’t put any of them down. I wish she had more books coming.
