Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Rocky Mountain Restoration by Lisa J. Flickinger

Book:  Rocky Mountain Restoration

Author: Lisa J. Flickinger

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: June 29, 2021


Josephine Thorebourne doesn’t deserve happiness. Not after the mess she’s made.

Mid-voyage, on the steamship Jameson, she learns of the tragic loss of her family’s money. Money she stole with the hopes of turning a profit. What should be a delightful voyage up the Canadian coast turns into a journey of regret. Josephine seeks the solace of the man she loves, only to find out he’s an imposter. Left with no other choice, she must return to her home town of Stony Creek and face the anger of those she’s betrayed.

Owen Kelly was given the opportunity of a lifetime to steward on the SS Jameson. The work meant he could escape his difficult upbringing along the wharves of Chicago. When his heart falls for the woman in cabin eight, Owen must decide if he will continue his work on the ship or follow the love of his life to her Rocky Mountain home.

As Josephine faces the repercussions of her decisions, the future becomes uncertain. Owen is the one person who knows everything and yet still sees the good in her. Will their love survive the challenges the Rocky Mountain town throws in their path?

I really enjoy reading books that are a part of a series. Rocky Mountain Restoration is the third book in the Rocky Mountain Revival series by Lisa J. Flickinger. I have read the first 2 books in the series and was excited to read this newest book. 

Josephine Thorebourne is on a Voyage up the Canadian East Coast when she learns of a HUGE loss of Family Money. Josephine had taken the family's money in hopes of making a profit from it, but it turns into a LOSS. She seeks comfort from someone who she feels she can trust fully, only to find out he is an impostor. She realizes she must return home and face the consequences of her actions. Owen Kelly is a Steward on the SS Jameson, the same Steamship that Josephine is on for her voyage. Owen finds himself attracted to Josephine and they begin a friendship. Owen has dreamed of working on a Steamship since his childhood on the streets of Chicago. Josephine and Owen have a growing relationship. Will Josephine return home to "face the music and will her family forgive her?" Will Owen give up his lifelong dream and go with her? 

I must admit, it took me a bit to really get into the storyline. Once the story "clicked" with me I REALLY enjoyed reading about Josephine and Owen and all the mystery of their voyage and Josephine's Troubles. Josephine is filled with regret for her betrayal to her family. Owen is a great comforter and he really enjoys being in the company of Josephine. GREAT BOOK! 

Lisa J. Flickinger lives and writes from the cliff of a river along the majestic Rocky Mountains. When not writing or reading, you will find her scouring antique shops or sipping a maple latte with friends and family. To learn more about her other books, visit


More from Lisa

Have you ever smelled a whale’s breath? I have. The experience sparked the idea of taking the characters in Rocky Mountain Restoration on a pleasure cruise up the Canadian coast.

My husband and I vacationed in Ucluelet one summer, a quaint fishing village on the west coast of Vancouver Island. While there, we boarded a cabin cruiser with other adventure seekers to go whale watching.

Not long after leaving the rocky shore, our experienced captain spotted the flick of a tale in the rolling waves, and guided the boat to a position hundreds of yards away.  Within moments, to our delight and awe, a massive humpback breached mere feet from the boat. Its knobbed head rose before us, mouth wide open, hundreds of baleen plates dripping a murky red. The smell was one of the worst in my memory, a vulgar mixture of rotten fish, old road kill, and something indescribable. But what a privilege to encounter one of God’s magnificent creatures up close!

A logging camp, high in the Rockies, is a long way from the pacific coast. That’s the very reason our nefarious antagonists from book one of the Rocky Mountain Revival Series, Josephine and Snoop, have chosen to board the SS Jameson under assumed names.

While I can’t promise you whale’s breath in the novel, I can promise you gorgeous scenery and other wildlife encounters as a backdrop for betrayal, thievery, and—of course—romance. Hop aboard!
