    1. About this book:“Journey now to San Francisco, California, of 1853 whereAn English socialite finds more treasure than expected on her trip to the American West. When Abby Effingham becomes stranded in the middle of the California gold rush, her money depletes quickly even while her prospects for marriage increase daily. But Abby is on a mission to find her mother—not romance. Will a ridiculous scandal keep her from traveling on, or will it wake up an aloof innkeeper to the treasure right und [...]


    2. Rating: 4.5This is a typical romance series written by a variety of Christian authors. I usually rate them a 3 or a 4 and consider them an easy read without a lot of depth. Janice Thompson rose above the standard in this book. The outstanding faith thread that was woven seamlessly into the story definitely made this an above average read. Her historical research regarding the Gold Rush period in California was excellent and made both the time period and the setting come alive. There were so many [...]

    4. I really wanted to love this book. San Francisco just after the major gold rush, a little bit of mystery, a treasure, a sweet love story. It was an ok read for me. I think there will be several who really connect and enjoy it. As for me, I had a hard time connecting to the characters. At first I liked them. I thought it was going to be witty and fun. Some healing for Abby, the main female character, and her family. And a sweet romance for her. But the further I read, I just wasn't connecting wit [...]


    5. "Never underestimate the power of coffee, Neville." I was hooked with this opening line. My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California is the story of Abby and her ever faithful servant/butler Neville and their trek across the country to bring her mother home to her father. Things don't go as planned and the two end up in the rowdy town of San Francisco where they learn a lot about themselves and others. As I mentioned above I was hooked from the beginning. Abby and Neville are more like friends [...]


    6. I found this book to be full of humor with several nuggets of wisdom sprinkled throughout the pages. I had expected a lighthearted,easy read but was delightfully surprised with the amount of insight, the biblical wisdom that gave substance to a pleasant story. Abby Effingham, unexpectedly finds herself in San Francisco during the 1850's gold rush. This unexpected detour from her mission of finding her mother sets Abby on a course of self-discovery. Ms. Thompson provides the reader with a delight [...]



    7. This was an okay book. A little on the preachy side. The main characters don't seem to like San Francisco much until almost the end when they are starting to get attached to people, not the place. A lot of the problems still exist at the end of the book that were at the beginning. And everyone kissing in the kitchen? That would have never happened in that era, they would have been way more discrete.I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


    8. Title: My Heart Belongs in San Francisco California (Abby’s Prospects)Author: Janice ThompsonPages: 256Year: 2018Publisher: Barbour BooksMy rating is 5 out of 5 stars.Abby is traveling with her butler to Oregon to bring her mother back home to Philadelphia. However, there is no current route there due to the road being washed out so Abby and Neville, the butler, end up in a boisterous and rowdy town. Within moments of their arrival, shots are fired in the air as men gallop down the street cele [...]


    9. When socialite Abby Effingham left the comforts of Philadelphia in late April 1853 to trek across the country to the Oregon territory to find her mother, she didn't even begin to imagine that she'd end up in the rough and tumble gold mining town of San Fransisco. As Abby is learning to stand on her own two feet, will she remember to always lean on, and trust her heavenly Father?I struggled a few times with trying to like the heroine of this story. Abby is somewhat tempestuous and tends to run ah [...]


    10. Abigail Effingham likes to fix things. In 1853 she is was headed to Oregon escorted by the family butler, Neville, in an effort to bring her mother back home so that she could fix her parents marriage and they could all live happily ever after back home in Philadelphia. Due to heavy rains the road headed to Oregon is impassable so Abby conjures up another scheme to go to San Francisco and lure both of her parents to follow her there. San Francisco isn’t at all what proper Abby or Neville envis [...]


    11. I have really enjoyed this "My Heart Belongs" series, but I just couldn't convince myself that this book measured up to the others. I wanted to like the characters, but they seemed a bit flat as if each one represented a category, rather than a real person. Cookie came the closest to really interesting me. I liked her Biblical faith and her willingness to serve and challenge others. Her conversation with Abby about being "fixers" was probably the best part of this story! On the other hand, I oft [...]


    12. Inspirational author Janice Thompson's contribution to the My Heart Belongs series does not disappoint. My Heart Belongs in San Francisco is a fun, light-hearted book and yet it brings a message of what it means to be true to oneself and of having faith in a God who is at work in our lives even before we recognize it. I loved the eclectic and engaging mix of characters--a British butler and a Chinese handyman, a lady in dungarees and a young belle with a servant's heart, a mother with wanderlust [...]


    13.

How about a trip back in time?

    14. Abby's mother has what Abby calls, 'Wanderlust.' They moved from Nottingham to Pennsylvania in Abby's father's hope that his wife would be happy there, only to have to take off for Oregon. Abby and their butler, Neville, head to Oregon to bring Abby's mother back home. The trail is washed out, so they take another route and end up in San Francisco. It is after the big gold rush and the town is rough, to say the least. A waiter on the train had talked to Abby about San Francisco and mentioned an [...]


    15. Abby a young woman has traveled across the States from Philadelphia to San Francisco, along with her trusted butler Neville. Abby had wanted to go to Oregon, but the roads were all washed out, when they were traveling, so they had to take a fork in the road to California instead. She was trying to reach her absentee mother, who spends more time away from her family, than with them. While they were traveling by train a young man who was a porter, recommended the Gold Rush Inn as a place to stay a [...]


    16. When her pursuit of her wandering mother is blocked, Abby Effingham makes the decision to take herself and her chaperone, the family butler, to San Francisco. Sam Harris rescues the impetuous beauty from herself and the two drift closer and closer to love.While I did like the detailed description of the time period and era -the mucky streets, the attitude of those who had caused the city to explode in size-, I did not much care for the main characters. I found Abby to be an immature, selfish wom [...]


    17. This book is part of a series entitled “My Heart Belongs in” and each book in the series is written by a different author. I’ve loved Janice Hanna Thompson’s books for many years now, and was delighted to receive an advanced copy of this book for review.This book is much what you expect from a series like this: Light, fun reading with a similar “finding my place in the world” storyline that also includes a sweet romance. What sparkles the most in this particular book are the characte [...]


    18. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to these characters. They made a fun and lasting impression on me, and I fell in love with several secondary characters as well. Thompson kept my interest the entire time, and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. It was fun seeing a crazy mining town through different points of view, varying from residents to a first time visitor. I enjoyed watching Abby and her butler Neville adapt to their surroundings, and eventually come to love them. It was unique [...]


    19. English socialite (not by today's definitions) Abigail (Abby) Effingham will do anything to keep her parents together including travelling across the country to find her mother, to convince her to come back home. Escorted by her chaperone and long time confidant Neville, she makes a train journey but makes a detour in San Francisco due to unfavourable weather that blocks the railroad tracks. In the growing town, she makes unlikely friendships with a hotel owner, Sam Harris and his cook and mothe [...]


    20. I loved this story, a privileged young woman, gets down and dirty, and doesn’t seem to mind at all.The story shows beginnings of San Francisco, actually its steamy side, and our girl ends up there on a quest to find her mother. The Lord took her in hand and she ends up in the right place at the right time. I felt God put Cookie and Sam in Abby’s path, and what a delight to watch her change.I also would love to see Nigel as he became a different person, the sideburns?What a great movie this s [...]


    21. Truly a fun, yet real life type story filled with unexpected twists with Scripture used throughout in a very unique way. I loved some of the main characters: Abby, Samuel, Cookie, Neville, and Les. Each had their own challenges and struggles, yet the adventure that was intertwined throughout was such a blast to read! I not only loved the story, but was encouraged by God's Word and able to apply some of the same things that the characters faced to my every day life. I highly recommend this book b [...]


    22. My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California was a great read. This is the first time I’ve had the privilege of reading this author and enjoyed the story, the characters and the history surrounding the storyline. I like that it’s part of a series. I enjoyed how it portrayed real life situations; yet brought God into the circumstances and learned how to fully trust Him. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was not obligated to write a review. The opinions in th [...]


    23. A lighthearted story of the raucous 49ers in San Francisco in the 1849 time period. Various personalities show up as main characters; domineering types, egotisticals, kind & caring souls, steady Eddys, hard workers, adventurers and lovers of God. It's a good story but has many overused phrases relating to God & life, which diminishes their meaning for me. In the end, everyone wins and all problems are solved. If you're looking for a quick, light read, you'll enjoy this novel. I was given [...]


    24. I enjoyed reading this book. I was happy when the heroine finally opened her eyes to some things. The hero was cool. I was surprised at the solutions for many problems before the end of the book.



    25. An enjoyable read by Janice Thompson. When Abby and her butler are detoured to San Francisco on a journey to unite with her mother they learn many new skills. As their money runs short they both have to find employment. Sam hires them at his hotel/restaurant. The many proposals begin because there are not many women around. The romance begins for more than just the young couple.I received the book from NetGalley with no expectations for a positive review. All expressed opinions are my own.
