Too Good to Be True Book Give-Away!

Could he really be as perfect as he seems?

Today I want to celebrate the recent release of the e-book version of my romantic comedy novel, Too Good to Be True, by giving away a copy. But first, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of Mending Fences, by Suzanne Fisher, is:

proudmama315@...

Congratulations! I'll email you for your snail mail address, and (assuming you're a U.S. resident) we'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let me share with you the write-up on this week's feature, Too Good to Be True:

Trish Perry, author of the charming novel The Guy I’m Not Dating, follows up with a contemporary, humorous tale of how love and life unfold in surprising ways.

Rennie Young, heroine of Too Good to Be True, meets the gallant Truman Sayers after she faints in the boys’ department of the local super store. Despite this unromantic introduction, Tru Sayers, a handsome young labor–and–delivery nurse, seems like a gift from God. But a recent divorce and other life disappointments cause Ren to question whether she can trust her heart and God.

This clever novel encourages readers to lean on God’s leading and to be open to life after the hurt—even when it seems too good to be true.

The e-book can be purchased online via the following link:



Soon I'll be releasing the e-book version of the book that follows Too Good to Be True, titled Beach Dreams. I'll do a give-away of that book, as well, so do watch for that! The book focuses on the romantic relationship that develops between two of the characters who were pivotal in the stories of The Guy I'm Not Dating and Too Good to Be True, Tiffany LeBoeuf (former bad girl) and Jeremy Beckett (funny, romantic Brit). The write-up:

Tiffany LeBoeuf recently lost her mother to cancer. Still grieving, Tiffany seeks rest for her body and soul at a cozy beach house in San Diego. A scheduling mix–up causes a double booking, and Tiffany ends up sharing the house with a woman named Eve. When Eve’s boyfriend, Jeremy, arrives to surprise Eve, he’s surprised to see Tiffany as well. He settles in at the beach house next door, and what happens after that surprises them all.

A fun, contemporary romance about how God uses even our mistakes to bring about His divine purposes. Beach Dreams is the perfect get–away read.

If you'd like to be entered in the drawing for Too Good to Be True, answer the following question. What are you thoughts these days about romantic comedy novels? Do you enjoy the break from more serious reads, or do you find yourself only choosing novels that are completely serious in nature?

Suzanne Fisher and Free Books!

In Mending Fences, Luke Schrock is back in Stoney Ridge from a stint in rehab (or two or three), hoping for a quick fix with those he hurt…until he discovers that making true amends is much more than a quick fix.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of The Other Neighbor, by Gail Sattler, is:

adlcap16@...

Congratulations! We'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's meet novelist Suzanne Fisher, author of the contemporary romance novel, Mending Fences, Revell Books, releasing February 5, 2019.

Carol award winner Suzanne Woods Fisher writes stories that take you to places you’ve never visited—with characters that seem like old friends. But most of all, her books give you something to think about long after you’ve finished reading them.

With over one million copies of her books sold worldwide, Suzanne is the best-selling author of more than thirty books, ranging from non-fiction books, to children’s books, to novels.

She lives with her very big family in northern California.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I play tennis. A lot! I just love the game—for exercise, for sport, mostly for fun. A much elderly woman (who beat me, as I recall) gave me this advice about tennis: “Never stop.”

My daughter and son-in-law are addicted to playing. It keeps them in great shape.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Mending Fences.

In the last year, Luke Schrock has been in and out of rehab three times, but now he’s back to stay. He’s returning to the Amish community of Stoney Ridge to seek forgiveness, one by one, from those he’s hurt through his behavior. In a way, for the Amish, that’s the easy part. The Amish community forgives him, but they don’t trust him. Especially Izzy Miller, a girl who’s savvy to a guy like Luke Schrock.

But Deacon Amos Lapp and Bishop David Stoltzfus insist that Luke not stop there. He must also ask each person how his harmful behavior affected them. That’s where things get sticky. Not a comfortable assignment! And yet it has remarkable, life changing consequences—for Luke and for others.

What is it about Luke that will make your readers care about him?

Luke Schrock is the most exasperating, impossible person in the little Amish church in Stoney Ridge. Handsome, charming, irascible, clueless. All that, but even more frustrating…he’s hard to stay mad at.

Who is one of your favorite fictional characters?

Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird. Such a noble man!

Oh, yes. Loved him in the book, and loved how Gregory Peck portrayed him in the film.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. It’s a curious tale of healing, with many moments of redemption.

What are you working on now?

On a Summer Tide, book 1 in the ‘Three Sisters Island’ series—releasing in mid April. You might be surprised to learn that it’s neither Quaker nor Amish. But it is a charming community, set on a remote island in Maine. The town is in great decline and a retired dad has bought it, named it for his three daughters, with hopes to bring his scattered family back together.

Sounds great. We'll have to have you back after it releases.

Where else can readers find you online?

I love to hear from readers and try to respond within 24 hours. Here’s my website: www.suzannewoodsfisher.com. Facebook and Instagram are good, too. My handle on instagram: suzannewoodsfisher

The book can be purchased online via the following button:



Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

Think of the last library book you put on hold. Why did you want to check it out? What drew you to it that made it worth the wait?

And thank you, readers of Trish Perry, for taking the time to learn about an author who might be new to you! I appreciate it more than you might think.

Thank you, Suzanne, for visiting and telling us about yourself and your book. Readers, Suzanne has offered to give away free copy of her novel. To enter, leave a comment and your email below in answer to Suzanne's question, above. "Please enter me" won't get you entered.

Gail Sattler and Free Books!

FBI agent Steve Gableman needs to get information from his neighbor Cheryl Richardson that she doesn't really know so he can prevent a bombing.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of In Apple Pie Order, by Joi Copeland, is:

perrianne.as@...

Congratulations! We'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's meet novelist Gail Sattler, author of the romantic suspense novel, The Other Neighbor (Mantle Rock Publishing, November 2018).

Gail Sattler lives in Vancouver BC Canada, where you don't have to shovel rain. When she's not madly writing (Gail Sattler has over 40 published novels and novellas, plus a few works of non-fiction), she plays bass for an Elton John tribute band as well as a community jazz band. She also plays piano for a smaller private jazz band.

When she's not writing or making music (or at her day job) Gail likes to sit back and read a book written by someone else, along with a good cup of hot coffee.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I am a trekkie. My favorite movie is Star Trek IV (the one with the whales).

The Voyage Home. That was my favorite with the original crew too. Lots of humor.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of The Other Neighbor.

FBI agent Steve Gableman moves next door to Cheryl Richardson so he can find out what she knows about her neighbor, who intel says is building a bomb. Cheryl doesn't realize what she can find out, but Steve does, and the FBI needs to know before people are killed or a target, so far unknown, is destroyed.

What is it about Cheryl that will make your readers care about her?

Cheryl doesn't know what her landlord/neighbor is plotting, but when she finds out, she does her best to help.

What do you hope to accomplish in 2019, either with your writing or some other facet of your life?

I want to e-publish a 5 book series that I have in the works right now. (see below)

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

I'm so far behind in my reading I don't know which way is up. I'm catching up on novels I have in my Kindle, and right now I'm reading Lucky by Staci Stallings. I recommend it because the hero has come from a long way down, and even though he struggles, he knows God is there despite struggles and uncertainties.

What are you working on now?

A five book series on the Kozlowski family. With his hectic job as a store manager, Zac Kozlowski treasures his home for its peace and quiet. But then his sister Terina and her yappy dog move in when her home burns down. Then their cousin Matt is evicted when his roomie steals the rent money. Another cousin, Wesley, needs a place to stay with an unexpected urgent job transfer. If that wasn't enough under one roof, everyone nearly forgot about eccentric Aunt Nettie, who sublet her condo for six months so she could come for a visit… \with her cat. And the fun begins.

Joi Copeland and Free Books!

She’s hiding from love, he’s hiding from God.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of Hosea's Heart, by Linda Rondeau, is:

robingail0159@...

Congratulations! We'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's meet novelist Joi Copeland, author of In Apple Pie Order (Forget Me Not Romance, January 2019), women's fiction with a touch of romance.

Joi Copeland is married to a wonderful man, Chris, and has three amazing boys. She is living the dream in beautiful Denver, Colorado. Joi loves being a wife and mom and also enjoys spending time with friends over a good cup of coffee or tea.

She's been a Christian for over twenty years. God has called her and her family overseas, and she hopes to make her home in Ireland by 2019.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

My family and I are missionaries, working toward moving to Ireland in less than a year.

I would imagine you get plenty of inspiration for novels with a life like that.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of In Apple Pie Order.

Still grieving the loss of the love of her life in a freak accident, Rose Wallace is determined not to admit she needs help on the apple farm, but God knows the truth. Still, she refuses to open her heart and risk getting it broken again.

Sterling Bertram leaves his hometown in search of a new way of life. He hopes to make a quick side trip to his childhood friend's home, but his world is forever changed by what he finds.

What is it about Sterling that will make your readers care about him?

I base most of my lead men off of the characteristics of my husband. My editor absolutely fell in love with Sterling. She said he made her swoon!

Well, that's romantic!

What do you hope to accomplish in 2019, either with your writing or some other facet of your life?

I hope to be in Ireland, working with the team there to share the good news of Christ with those living in Ireland.

You'll have to touch base with us later, to let us know when you've been so blessed!

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

In Time for Christmas, by Heather Blanton. The plot intrigued me as I’ve never read time travel in a romantic Christian fiction novel.

Yes, I like the premise of that book.

What are you working on now?

I am working on Faith to Dance.

Linda Rondeau and Free Books!

How long should a husband search for a runaway, drug-addicted wife?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of Moments with Billy Graham, by Yvonne Lehman, is:

vherlock@...

Congratulations! I'll email you to get your snail mail address, and then we'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's meet novelist Linda Rondeau, author of the Contemporary Women’s Fiction novel, Hosea’s Heart (Elk Lake Publishing Inc/August 2018).

Multi-published and award winning author, Linda Wood Rondeau is a veteran social worker. Her published novels examine the complexities of human relationships. Most of Linda’s work is contemporary fiction. However, she has published both speculative and non-fiction.

Her blog, Snark and Sensibility, hosts writers of various genres. She manages a Facebook page, Having the Prime of My Life, a positive look at aging issues.

Linda resides in Hagerstown with her husband of forty years.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Hosea's Heart.

A minister’s search for his runaway, drug-addicted wife has brought him into the underworld of the nation’s capital. When he is finally reunited with her, he discovers she is terminally ill. While he can forgive her addiction, he learns of her ultimate betrayal … a liaison with Washington DC’s most notorious drug czar.

After years of drug abuse, Joanna has given her life to the Lord. Now in terminal stages of lung cancer, she prays for Aubrey’s forgiveness and to find some purpose in her life before she leaves this world for the next.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I once played a cigar smoking, elderly mystery writer in a murder/mystery dinner theater.

Oh, how fun! 

What is it about Aubrey Beaumont that will make your readers care about him?

Aubrey Beaumont, a conservative suburban pastor, struggles with a passion to serve the wasteland of Washington DC’s underworld, drug addicts and prostitutes. Got to love a man who has dedicated the past fifteen years in search of a drug-addicted, runaway wife who has made it clear she does not want to be found.

You do, indeed. Thus the reference to Hosea, obviously. 

What do you hope to accomplish in 2019, either with your writing or some other facet of your life?

I am embarking on a new direction in life … a motivational speaker. While I’ve been involved with Toastmasters, I have felt a tug in my heart to minister to senior women and families. I have registered for Christian Communicators Conference in March. After I receive certification, I will actively pursue this venue in addition to a myriad of writing projects for 2019.

That's a noble goal, Linda. Just getting past the typical fear of speaking in public is hard enough, but to focus on an area, an audience, that seems somewhat neglected, is wonderful.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

Lael Harrelson’s Tremors of Doubt. Through the main character’s struggle, the author demonstrates the difference between traditionalism and true spirituality.

What are you working on now?

A non-fiction book, I Prayed for Patience God Gave Me Children. Through our labors with children, God demonstrates what it means to be his child. This book is contracted by Elk Lake Publishing with a projected release of early May 2019. It is a revised version of a previously published book now off the market.

Where else can readers find you online?

I’d like to invite readers to my blog: Snark and Sensibility. Each week I offer three varying posts: Mondays are dedicated to senior living (Having the Prime of My Life), Wednesdays … Devotionals, and Flash Fiction Fridays. I feature guest spots. lindarondeau.com/snarksensibility

Readers may visit me and sign up for my newsletter at www.lindarondeau.com. Contact me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

The book can be purchased on Amazon via the following button:



Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

If you were counseling Aubrey Beaumont, what advice would you give him?

Excellent question. I think it's a good idea to put ourselves in the shoes of others who are challenged as Christians.

Thank you, Linda, for visiting and telling us about yourself and your book. Readers, Linda has offered to give away free e-copy of her novel. To enter, leave a comment and your email below in answer to Linda's question, above. "Please enter me" won't get you entered.
