Ok and now the other tag! (if you're still reading...)
The Rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.

The closest book is A Soldier's Family by Cheryl Wyatt (which I'll be reviewing next week)

This is a Love Inspired book!

"She fought to keep her voice from quavering. "Obviously you have some idea of how this should go." She licked her lips, dry from anxiety of how she was going to pay for the fence and that scooter."

Doesn't that make you want to read the book immediately?

The end!
