Merry Christmas Give-Aways!

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and I want to warm someone up for the holidays by giving them the brand new e-version of my romantic beach comedy, Sunset Beach.

But first, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of The Plum Blooms in Winter, by Linda Thompson, is subscriber:

caseym.writer@...

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.



Here's a bit of information about the plot of Sunset Beach:

Sonny Miller, a recent college graduate with plans to get her master’s degree in psychology, intends to resolve some family drama and put her academic interests to the test. She cleverly invites her mother, Teresa, and her mother’s estranged twin, Aunt Melanie, to a quiet and quirky San Diego beach house. They both show up...and with surprises of their own. Teresa, a successful classical singer, brings her latest protégé, Irina, and Melanie brings along secrets about Teresa and the identity of Sonny’s long-gone father.

The strong personalities cause some big waves, and Sonny is in over her head. Soon she is drawn to Irina and Irina’s charming brother, Grigori. Her faith is strengthened by their story of being adopted as children from a Russian orphanage by a Christian couple from America.

Readers will love being a guest alongside these characters. Between each sunrise and sunset is another day for healing, laughter, rediscovering the importance of family, and embracing the hope of God’s care.

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

My question? What is one thing that stresses you about the Christmas holidays, and one of the things you most look forward to? (For me, the frigid winter weather used to be the one nerve-wracking thing. But moving to California took care of that! And the thing I most look forward to is gathering with family, which my move to California kind of messed up--now we'll be celebrating after the holidays so everyone can come back from traveling to the east coast. You take the good with the bad!) What about you?

Linda Thompson and Free Books!

A gripping novel inspired by a true story from World War II’s daring Doolittle Raid.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of Stagecoach to Liberty, by Janalyn Voigt, is:

jdmfirefly@...

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 Linda Thompson, author of the historical novel, The Plum Blooms in Winter (Mountain Brook Ink, December 2018).

Linda Thompson stepped back from a corporate career that spanned continents to write what she loves--stories of unstoppable faith. Her debut novel, The Plum Blooms in Winter, is an ACFW Genesis award winner.

Linda writes from the sun-drenched Arizona desert, where she lives with her husband, a third-generation airline pilot who doubles as her Chief Military Research Officer, two mostly-grown-up kids, and a small platoon of housecats. When Linda isn't writing, you'll find her rollerblading--yes, that does make her a throwback--taking in a majestic desert moonrise, or dreaming of an upcoming trip. She and her husband recently returned from a tour of Israel and Jordan and a visit to Wales.

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

Our son Josh met a young Welsh woman when we were on a mission trip in the U.K., and fell in love. They carried on a long-distance relationship for a couple of years, then married. However, due to the U.S. immigration process, the relationship is still long-distance! She will finally be able to join her husband permanently here in Arizona in January--with our first grandchild, who is now two months old and a dual U.S. / U.K. citizen! We are very excited to see them finally begin their life together for good. (I am already plotting how I can work a Welsh character into a future novel!)

It actually sounds like their story could be the plot for a future novel!

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of The Plum Blooms in Winter.

A Prostitute Seeks Her Revenge--In 1942, Miyako Matsuura cradled her little brother as he died on the sidewalk, a victim of the first U.S. bombing raid on Japan. By 1948, the war has reduced her to a street-hardened prostitute consumed by her shame.

A WWII Hero Finds His True Mission--Dave Delham makes military aviation history piloting a B-25 in the audacious Doolittle Raid. Forced to bail out over occupied China, he and his crew are captured by the Japanese and survive a harrowing POW ordeal. In 1948, he returns to Japan as a Christian missionary, determined to showcase Christ's forgiveness.

Convinced that Delham was responsible for the bomb that snuffed out her brother's life, Miyako resolves to restore her honor by avenging him--even if it costs her own life. But the huntress soon becomes hunted in Osaka's treacherous underworld. And then confronts a decision that will change everything.

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

Miyako is deeply wounded, but courageous, determined and self-sacrificing. She will pay any price to fulfill what she sees as her duty.

What’s one of your favorite Christmas books or films?

Okay, promise not to laugh… The Muppet Christmas Carol. I enjoy the music and the corny jokes, and I appreciate the message of this classic redemption story. And Miss Piggy’s star turn as Mrs. Cratchit? Perfect.

Oh, that does bring back memories!

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

I loved Melanie Dobson’s Catching the Wind. I find the craft behind time-slip stories fascinating, and I especially enjoyed the well-researched World War II timeline that ended with a heart-rending and very memorable separation. But yes, there was healing on the other side of that.

Yes, Melanie is great at time-slip stories. I featured her Hidden Among the Stars not too long ago.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on Book Two in the Brands From the Burning series, The Mulberry Leaf Whispers. It continues the World War II story from The Plum Blooms in Winter, but also introduces a new plotline from samurai-era Japan.

Where else can readers find you online?

I love to connect with readers! My website: lthompsonbooks.com Author Page. Or follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, or Bookbub.

The book can be purchased online via the following button:



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

Certain eras are very popular in historical Christian fiction, while others are largely unexplored. Does the idea of reading a story that explores the challenges of Christians in Japan’s samurai era intrigue you, or not? Can you expand on why you feel that way?

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.

Janalyn Voigt and Free Books!

Can a desperate young woman trust the handsome Irish stranger who wants to free her from her captors?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of the cozy mystery novel, Where There's a Will, by Amy Rognlie, is:

vherlock@...

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 Janalyn Voigt, author of the sweeping western historical romance, Stagecoach to Liberty (Mountain Brook Ink, 12 2018).

Janalyn Voigt fell in love with literature at an early age when her father read classics to her as bedtime stories. When Janalyn grew older, she put herself to sleep with her own made-up tales. Her sixth-grade teacher noticed her love of storytelling and encouraged her to become a writer. Today Janalyn is a multi-genre author.

Janalyn writes the kind of novels she likes to read – epic adventures brimming with romance, mystery, history, and whimsy. She is praised for her unpredictable plots and the lyrical, descriptive prose that transports readers into breathtaking storyworlds.

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

I once lived at a remote communications station in the Australian Outback, two-hundred miles from the nearest small town. My husband was a sailor who worked at a naval base jointly run by the American and Australian military.

During the three years we lived in Western Australia, we went through Severe Tropical Cyclone Karen. We sheltered in the utility closet in our home, which was just big enough to hold our daughter’s crib. I’ll never forget the sound of the storm, which reminded me of a freight train passing near our house.

The stuff of nightmares! 

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Stagecoach to Liberty.

Elsa Meier, a talented young Hessian girl who plays the hurdy-gurdy and dances, signs a contract to entertain miners in the Wild West. Elsa travels to America in the company of Miles and Alicia Peabody, the brother and sister who persuaded her mother to allow her to go. Elsa hopes for freedom and the chance to send money home to help her family. Instead, she comes to the attention of a wealthy and unscrupulous man. On a stagecoach traveling into Montana Territory, Elsa conveys her peril to a handsome stranger with an Irish accent.

Con Walsh, on a quest to find out the truth about himself, stumbles into a dangerous situation involving a frightened young woman in need of rescue. Despite his own pressing troubles, he finds that her safety matters to him more than his own.

Set in Montana during its gold rush -- a time troubled by outlaws, corruption and vigilante violence -- Stagecoach to Liberty explores faith, love, and courage in the wild west. This story can stand alone or continue the saga that began with Hills of Nevermore and Cheyenne Sunrise.

What a great series!

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

Elsa has the best of intentions. She leaves her family in Germany for America to help her widowed mother support her younger siblings. When others let her down, her strong mind and moral fiber sustain her.

What’s one of your favorite Christmas books or films?

I’m a big fan of Charles Dickens. His ability to create larger-than-life characters that live outside the written page is awe-inspiring. I’ve adopted my husband’s long-standing tradition of watching A Christmas Carol each Christmas. Each year, I see something new in the story.

And there are several excellent film versions of the story, so it's possible to keep that experience fresh. 

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

So far, no one has topped Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier for vivid descriptions, deep characterizations, and intriguing plotting. She shares a similar gift for inventing compelling characters as Charles Dickens. You may notice a theme. I love classic, timeless stories.

I thought I had read that one, but I see I haven't. That will be next on my TBR list to listen to as I walk! The plot sounds exciting.

What are you working on now?

The Forever Sky is the final installment in the Montana Gold series. Maisey Wilcox, the heroine, appeared as a supporting character in the first three books. It’s nice to delve more deeply into the story of a heroine who is in every way admirable. After suffering devastating losses that would crush a weaker soul, Maisey reaches out to help others. I can only aspire to show such love. Rob, the hero, struggles to prove himself. That Con, his successful older brother, overshadows him doesn’t help.

Amy Rognlie and Free Books!

Callie, Todd and friends have their hearts set on building Hope House, a home for sex-trafficking victims, but their plan is in jeopardy when Callie is confronted with the mysterious death of someone much closer to her than she’d like.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of the women's fiction/romance novel, The Shenandoah Road, by Lynne Tagawa, is:

momrain@...

and the winner of the free copy of the contemporary romance collection, In Love and War, by Miralee Ferrell, Kimberly Rose Johnson, Debby Mayne, and myself, is:

chassan2@...

and the winner of the free copy of the romantic suspense novel, No Turning Back, by H.L. Wegley, is:

Congratulations! We'll get your books 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 Amy Rognlie, author of the cozy mystery, Where There's a Will (Mountain Brook Ink, November 2018).

Amy Rognlie writes inspirational fiction, including cozy mysteries and historical novels. She is also known for her insightful devotional pieces and engaging presentations.

When not writing or speaking, she is teaching middle school language arts or leading a Bible study at the local jail.

Amy lives in Central Texas with her husband, granddaughter, dogs, and a plethora of plants, yarn, and books.

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

I'd love to learn to play the guitar.

Oh, you and me, both. I tried to learn bass years ago, and my fingers just fought me every step of the way. I have so much respect for musicians!

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Where There's a Will.

A mysterious postcard, a decades-old mystery, and a cranky realtor have suddenly thrown Callie Erickson’s plans for Hope House into a tailspin. Who knew that her shop, C. Williker's, used to belong to a family who disappeared years earlier, without a trace? And why are new clues to the mystery showing up now? And was the recent death of Callie's elderly friend truly from natural causes...or not? And why is her will missing?

Callie, her friends and her indomitable Great-Aunt Dot are on the case, but things are complicated by Aunt Dot and Harry's flourishing romance and Mona's health issues, not to mention a troubling connection between the long-missing family and the plans for Hope House. As Callie delves deeper into the mystery, her faith is tested like never before.

Follow her as she not only ferrets out the truth about the missing will, but also learns some lasting truths about life, love and faith.

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

My readers care about Callie, my main character, because she is an ordinary person like the rest of us. She has real-world problems that she struggles through with the help of her friends and her faith.

If your book was developed into a film, what’s one song you’d love to have in it?

"Love Has a Name" by Jesus Culture.

I didn't know that group before looking for that song. Nice.

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

I would recommend The Bird in the Tree by Elizabeth Goudge. It's an old book, but I love the deep insight into human character as well as the spiritual truths woven into the story.

What are you working on now?

I am writing the third Short Creek Mystery, To Err is Human.

Harry Wegley and Free Books!

Beth Sanchez is brilliant, introverted, beautiful, and a survivor of a great tragedy that left her in the crosshairs of a drug lord, but Drew West thinks she has a heart worth winning, and he's willing to die trying.

Today I'm featuring novelist (Harry) H.L. Wegley, author of the high-action, romantic suspense novel, No Turning Back (Trinity Press International, October 2018).

Harry served in the USAF as an Intelligence Analyst and a Weather Officer. In civilian life, he served as a Research Scientist in Atmospheric Physics. After earning an MS in Computer Science, Harry jumped ship to build computer systems for Boeing for 20 years before retiring near Seattle, where he and his wife small-group ministry, their grandchildren, and hiking on Olympic National Park beaches.

Harry is an award-winning author of 12 inspirational thrillers and romantic-suspense novels and has more on the way.

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

By age 12, I already had NFL wide-receiver speed. But at 15, my sprinting dreams were dashed when I tore my quads severely while competing in the long jump on a cold, windy day.

I feel your pain! I've never been much of an athlete, but I have a black belt in TaeKwonDo, and six months after earning my belt, I had to retest (it's part of the process). That was on a cold, windy day as well, and the dojo was so cold that I tore my hamstring while testing. I felt like my leg might fall off. 

I'm sure you were disappointed that your injury side railed you. I guess we never know our future with 100 percent certainty!

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of No Turning Back.

Elizabeth (Beth) Sanchez, daughter of the man who formed a militia and drove out the Del Rio Cartel, was the lone survivor after drug lord, Hector Suarez, retaliated, massacring the people in her town. Seven years later, Beth has an MBA, American citizenship, and is ready to chase her dreams. While on a Big Bend hiking excursion, Beth encounters Suarez who is bent on killing the one remaining symbol of resistance to his power, Beth Sanchez.

After once being called a coward, Drew West has a mile-high chip on his shoulder and an impressive resume of fighting skills. He’s ready to fight anybody, anywhere, especially if someone needs protection.

When Suarez tries to kill Beth in Big Bend, Drew humiliates the drug lord and captures Suarez’s little brother, Ricardo. Hector Suarez places Beth and Drew at the top of his hit list. When a federal prosecutor offers Beth and Drew protection for their testimony against Ricardo, Beth fears a safe house cannot stop another massacre. But Drew offers her a different option, his protection on a horse ranch half a continent away. But if Beth accepts Drew’s offer, there will be no marshal protection and no turning back.

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

Beth Sanchez survived major tragedy in her life and has a lot of guilt to overcome. That will certainly draw readers’ sympathy. But the mystery and intrigue surrounding her rare personality type, the female INTJ—the most searched personality type on the Internet—will draw a lot of interest. Experiencing the mental and emotional journey of this highly intelligent, yet introverted, young woman as she faces extreme danger and many life-changing decisions will draw a lot of readers to Beth. And, as mentioned in the author’s notes, much of her backstory is based on true events.

If your book was developed into a film, what’s one song you’d love to have in it?

About 25 years ago, Al Denson recorded an upbeat song that could be describing our love relationship with God or a deep love between two people. The song, "Living in the Light of Your Love," is one that Drew, an author in my story, might write for Beth. Here’s a YouTube link for those who want to hear a great song: https://bit.ly/2Fs7xp8

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

Long Way Gone by Charles Martin is a modern-day retelling of the prodigal son story. If you like music and acoustic guitars, you’ll love the story. But it also illustrates that, even if there’s an eventual good ending to the prodigal’s story, the events during his journey make the prodigal’s path a heart-rending choice that we should avoid.

What are you working on now?

Two weeks ago, I released a techno-thriller with romance, Virtuality, a warning about technology that will almost assuredly go bad in our society. And I’m editing an espionage thriller with a strong romance thread, The Janus Journals, that should release around Feb 1, 2019.

The Ever-Changing Shape of Christmas

I’ve been around for quite a few Christmases, and while my family has held on to a few traditional foods and practices, circumstances often remind us to remain flexible each year.

When I was five years old, my nine-year-old sister, Noreen, was in the hospital, having undergone very serious surgery. The doctors let her come home for Christmas day, and the rest of us (we were five kids, total) stayed in our pajamas and celebrated the day around her bed. It was one of the sweetest Christmas celebrations we’ve ever had.

Financial flexibility was often important, as well. During a few very lean years for me, as a single mother, my daughter and I handmade our gifts for each family member. One year we made each person a doll version of themselves, focusing on something characterizing them in some way.















In this picture the doll version of my literature professor brother holds serious novels, my cosmetics rep mother holds a bag full of perfume and makeup, my dad is dressed ready for a day on the links, and my film-loving brother holds a videotape and the glasses he couldn't forego when watching films. I know, I know. They all look thrilled to death, right?

Another year my daughter and I simply made goodies for everyone's gifts--their own personal batch of classic Chocolate Mint Brownie Bars. I would love to share my mother’s recipe with you here. But everything I own--including my cookbooks--is in storage, as I’ve only recently moved across the country to be closer to my kids and grandkids. So, I’ll encourage you to visit the following site and use the recipe that looks very close to what my mom used to make, at Sally's Baking Addiction.com/classic-mint-chocolate-brownies/ (a Pinterest-worthy site if ever there was one).

Along with those yummy bars, my daughter and I interviewed each family member, asking them to give us one sentence encapsulating why they loved each family member. Then in very shaky calligraphy, I put those comments together and framed the list for each family member. One for Dad, telling him what each family member said about him. One for Mom, etc. That Christmas turned out to be Noreen’s last with us. Not only was she brought to tears when she read the list of reasons we loved her, but we displayed that list as a succinct, physical testimony of our love for her at her memorial service several months later.

So Christmas has evolved into an occasion to remember loved ones who always made the day special but have moved on to join the Lord, like Mom, Dad, and Noreen.

It's a time to cherish my siblings, now spread all across the country, but dear to my heart. We may have to be flexible enough to celebrate Christmas during a different time of the year!



And it has become a time to revel in the joy of kids and grandkids who invigorate the festivities with their lust for life. Like my son, my daughter, my son-in-law, and my grandkids.

Family is family all year long, but the memories we make at Christmas emerge each year as lovely pieces in a lifelong puzzle. A puzzle that changes shape each year, held together by our love for one another, our appreciation of the precious nature of life, and our love for the One who makes this day truly worth celebrating.

How about you? Are there particular memories that become stronger for you at Christmas? Are there family members you especially miss?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in the time of the Great Awakening?

First things first: I must apologize for the delay of this post, readers. We had to evacuate for the California fires, which threw everything off schedule. I'm back home now, thanking God for preserving us and our belongings and praying for so many people who fared far worse. And I commend the fire and rescue teams here in California. Amazing, efficient, brave people!

As a consequence of my delay, you'll see three posts this weekend, each of which will feature a separate book and give-away. (And tomorrow's post will feature a number of give-aways--stay tuned!) I hope you'll enjoy each post and will comment and/or subscribe to win!

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of my contemporary romance, A Midnight Clear, is:

lorigeorge@...

And the winner of the free e-copy of my contemporary romance, Together by Design, is:

rivera0327@...

And the winner of the free e-copy of my contemporary romance, Local Girl, is:

Congratulations! I'll get your books 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 Lynne Tagawa, author of the historical novel (with a strong romantic streak), The Shenandoah Road: A Novel of the Great Awakening (Blue Rock Press, July 2018).

Lynne Tagawa is married with four grown sons and three marvelous grandbabies.

A biology teacher by trade, she teaches part-time, writes, and edits. She’s written a Texas history curriculum in narrative form, Sam Houston’s Republic, and two novels, A Twisted Strand and The Shenandoah Road.

Lynne lives with her husband in South Texas.

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

I play the flute. I’ve played a couple of times for weddings. Otherwise just with the pianist for church preludes. I’m one of those band people who never quite gave it up.

That's to be admired, Lynne. It's wonderful you've kept up your ability to play.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of The Shenandoah Road.

Both of my characters have spiritual struggles, and that is a core theme.

But another fascinating thing about the time period of the 1740s is that there was no single colonial “culture.” There were the New Englanders, there were the Quakers, the Virginians, and then the Scots-Irish. So when a Scots-Irish frontiersman courts a lass born in Boston...? You can guess what fun I had with that.

But the plot itself involves a physical journey as well, involving some typical hazards of travel in that time period. And, of course, a villain.

What is it about your lead characters that will make your readers care about them?

My frontiersman has a lot of strengths. He is godly and honorable. But he lost his first wife, and he’s in the graveyard in the first scene, and you feel for him. There are things he needs to learn, and we watch him struggle through these lessons. The heroine is a bit younger, and you see her grappling with new things and ideas in a sweet way. But she’s really challenged both spiritually and emotionally, and on top of that, has to adapt to a strange culture. All this supplies the pathos of the story.

And the conflict, which is great!

If your book were developed into a film, what’s one song you’d love to have in it?

I quote a bit from Isaac Watts, as my character purchased his hymnbook from Ben Franklin. In our church we sing his hymn “How Sweet and Awful is the Place” to the old Celtic tune “St. Columba,” which the Shenandoah Valley settlers would have known. No, it’s not romantic, but incredibly sweet and timeless.

I don't know that hymn, but I sought it out. I think the version I found might be a more "contemporary" melody. I can imagine it sung by a group of frontiersmen, maybe accompanied by a plaintive fiddle.

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

I recently finished Leisha Kelly’s Depression-era trilogy (Julia's Hope is the first book). She is great at bringing out the real struggles of the time period while remaining encouraging. She brings light to the darkness instead of wallowing there.

What are you working on now?

A sequel! I fell in love with my characters, the Shenandoah Valley, and historical fiction in general. Lord willing, I’d like to complete a trilogy, with the last installment covering the Revolutionary War period.

Sneak preview to the second one: John Russell will join the Virginia militia, headed by a very young man by the name of George Washington. And his daughter grows up.

It's always a good idea to have a sequel/series idea ready!

Trish Perry E-Book Give-Away!

Christmas is coming a bit early this year. The season factors into my latest release, A Midnight Clear, and I'm going to give away a copy to one of my commenters or subscribers. 

And while I'm at it, I'll give away a copy of my previous two releases, Together by Design and Local Girl.

But first I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of the issue-driven romance novel, A Kite on the Wind, by Patricia Lee, 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 here's just a short blurb about each of the books I'm going to give away next week.


A Midnight Clear: When she attends a Washington, D.C. dinner party thrown by friends far wealthier than she, writer Maddie Travers is distracted by internal debates. Should she move back to D.C.? Should she seek work she might find more fulfilling? She meets the appealing “regular guy,” Dom Sebastiani, at the party and consequently wonders whether she’s ready to seek romance again. So many decisions! At the stroke of midnight, a shocking turn of events sets Maddie on a path that holds at least as many questions for her as it does answers.

This book is available for purchase here: A Midnight Clear




Together by Design: Elena Tafani is in control of almost every aspect of her life. But getting arrested is only the first in a number of experiences that throw her summer completely off kilter. She may know how to stage a home to show it at its best, but her life isn’t showing quite as well. There’s her runaway niece, her hard-bitten sister, her over-indulgent parents, and her judgmental clients. Then there’s Chaz, the best friend for whom she’s developing very confusing feelings. What’s a good rule follower supposed to do?

This book is available for purchase here: Together by Design




Local Girl: Entrepreneur Edie Keegan achieves ever-growing acclaim for her popular Local Girl perfume. Her romantic life hasn’t been quite as successful, but that’s fine with her. As she insists to her matchmaking friend, Sara-Penny Butler, she’s not in the market for love. But Sara-Penny knows better, and she understands Edie and her painful past more than Edie realizes.

When Ben Walsh, the town veterinarian, turns Edie’s head, she questions whether love is worth the risk of getting hurt, whether Ben is the man for her (despite her cat allergies), and whether Sara-Penny is ever going to mind her own business.

This book is available for purchase here: Local Girl



I'll give one copy of each book away next week to a subscriber or a commenter who answers the following question: 

Thanksgiving is only a little more than two weeks away. My family is doing Thanksgiving out, at a restaurant, this year. I'm thankful I'm not cooking or cleaning up afterward, but I'm especially thankful to be geographically close to my kids and grandkids, if not my siblings. What are you thankful for, this year in particular?

Patricia Lee and Free Books!

Betrayed by love the first time around, can Claire Simpson trust her heart to find love again?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of the women's fiction/romance novel, Dancing in the Rain, by Jennifer Slattery, is:

duhpaynes@...

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 Patricia Lee, author of the issue-driven romance, A Kite on the Wind (Mountain Brook Ink, October 2018).

Patricia Lee is a published author, having written since she first learned what words could do at the age of six. She holds a BA in journalism from the University of Oregon. Articles to her credit have appeared in Moody Monthly, Power for Living, Expecting and Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse as well as in two anthologies— Cup of Comfort Bible Promises and In the Company of Angels.

Her first three-book series, Mended Hearts, includes An Anchor on Her Heart (July 2017) Love Calls Her Home (March 2018) and A Kite on the Wind (October 2018), published by Mountain Brook Ink. Patricia is a member of the Oregon Christian Writers and of American Christian Fiction Writers.

She and her husband have two adult children and live in the Pacific Northwest with one sleepy cat.

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

I enjoy growing dahlias. My husband and I share a mutual interest in the flowers. He does the heavy lifting and I care for the blooms. One summer we had more than thirty varieties and colors in our garden.

Oh, I can't imagine how lovely that must have been!

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of A Kite on the Wind.

Left waiting at the altar, Claire Simpson has buried her past and moved on, carving out a life for herself as a teacher on the Oregon coast. When her former fiancé appears, he threatens to unravel the peaceful independence she has worked so hard to achieve after their relationship failed. While she believes she has forgiven him, she finds forgetting what he did to be a much more difficult task.

Montgomery Chandler has moved to NOAA headquarters in Newport, Oregon to make new, happier memories for his children after his wife died of a lingering illness. Their home in Seattle held nothing but the whispers of their earlier lives. Starting over will help all of them heal, but Monty is resolved not to risk love again.

When the handsome widower enrolls his hurting children at the school where Claire teaches, her determination to remain uninvolved vanishes at the whim of a snowstorm. This family needs her expertise. Can she help them without losing her heart?

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

Claire’s heart has been broken by a man she trusted to love her. Finding the ability to love again will take time and an understanding love interest.

Write one sentence for us that tells us something about Claire and Montgomery as a children.

Claire and her sister Angela developed a close relationship growing up—playing together and taking their dolls to town, imagining themselves as future mothers.

Montgomery Chandler grew up on the waterways of Seattle, learning to sail and developing a fondness for the ocean and all it has to offer.

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

I read Christina Suzann Nelson’s new release, If We Make It Home. This story will keep readers at the edge of their seats as they follow the three female characters on their journey through the Oregon Cascades.

What are you working on now?

I’ve always wanted to tell the story of my great-great grandfather’s journey crossing the plains on horseback and settling on a 640 acre donation land claim in 1847. I grew up on part of that original land claim and I heard stories of him throughout my childhood. The real story was that of his betrothed waiting four years for him to return to Athens, Iowa and take her to Oregon with him. I’ve chosen to write the story as a time slip novel with a protagonist in this century uncovering the history left in an abandoned house. My imagination has had fun picturing my great-great grandmother and the challenges she faced waiting for her fiancé to return.

That could be a truly exciting story!

Jennifer Slattery and Free Books!

Two lives collide at a close-knit North Carolina camp—a woman trying to regain the independence her loss of sight stole and the man responsible for her blindness. Together they must learn that love and forgiveness truly can conquer all.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of the cozy crime novel, Murder by Suggestion, by Veronica Heley, is:

von1janet@...

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 revisit with novelist Jennifer Slattery, author of the women's fiction/romance novel, Dancing in the Rain (Independent, June 2018).

Jennifer Slattery is a writer and international speaker who’s addressed women’s groups, church groups, Bible studies, and other writers across the nation. She’s the author of six contemporary novels, maintains two devotional blogs, on at JenniferSlatteryLivesOutLoud and the other on Crosswalk.

She has a passion for helping women discover, embrace, and live out who they are in Christ. As the founder of Wholly Loved Ministries, she and her team partner with churches to facilitate events designed to help women rest in their true worth and live with maximum impact.

When not writing, reading, or editing, Jennifer loves going on mall dates with her adult daughter and coffee dates with her hilariously fun husband.

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

I can be overly, unrealistically empathetic and as such have a need to rescue every worm I see while on walks with my husband or our adult daughter. She teases me about this and reminds me worms don’t have brains and therefore can’t feel pain. I know this intellectually, but I still need to save the poor wiggling creatures before they shrivel up and die.

Your empathy probably comes in very handy in your role as an author! But maybe refrain from  using worms as characters...

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Dancing in the Rain.

Loni Parker, blind since aged fifteen, struggles to find employment. To reduce her stress and frustration, she joins her college roommate for a week at Camp Hope in the gorgeous North Carolina mountains.

She doesn’t realize, Michael Ackerman, the director, is an ex-con responsible for the accident that caused her blindness.

He recognizes Loni instantly and wants to avoid her at all costs. Yet, despite the guilt pushing him from her, a growing attraction draws him to the determined woman. She sees more with her heart than the average person does with his eyes. But her presence also dredges up a long-buried anger toward his alcoholic father that he’d just as soon keep hidden.

When circumstances spin out of control, Michael is forced to face a past that may destroy his present, and Loni is forced to wrestle with emotions she thought she’d long since overcome.

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

Michael’s rough past stirs him to help at risk kids and helps him see past other people’s behavior to their hearts beneath. His life is drastically changed when, while incarcerated, a now-friend tells him about the hope of Jesus. He has passion and love for His Savior, for kids, and for others.

Write one sentence for us that tells us something about Michael and Loni as children.

Michael grew up feeling unloved and unsafe whereas Loni only knew love and safety. Both of their pasts drastically affect their adult motivation and desires.

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

Can I share one I edited? I just edited Lindsey Bracket’s sophomore novel. I’m not sure the title’s been set yet, but it follows her debut, Still Waters. It’s a powerful story of forgiveness, restoration, and second chances. It’s truly one of the better books I’ve read in some time. Other than that, I’ve been reading a lot of nonfiction.

What are you working on now?

I haven’t officially signed on the dotted line yet, but by the time this goes live, I will have turned in revisions for … a hero romance novel. I’ll make sure to share more details once everything’s written in ink. I’m also working on a 7-week Bible study based on the life of Sarai/Sarah (Abraham’s wife) and learning to rest deeply in our identity in Christ. The study will have 7 video recorded segments, group discussion guides, and personal study lessons.

Where else can readers find you online?

You can find me on my website, on Crosswalk, at Wholly Loved Ministries, on Facebook, Twitter, or … pretty much everywhere cyber-space related it seems. Haha! I love connected with other book addicts, so please feel free to friend me or contact me through my website.

The book can be purchased online via the following button:



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

Have you ever gone to a church or family camp? What about camping period? If so, what did you enjoy most? Any funny stories to share? If you haven’t gone camping, what is the one camping-related activity you’ve always found appealing?

Thank you, Jennifer, for visiting and telling us about yourself and your book. Readers, Jennifer has offered to give away free e-copy of her novel.

Veronica Heley and Free Books!

Some bored wives play a game of Murder, leading to a husband dying in the way one of the women had suggested . . . and in consequence they’re all thrown out of house and home!

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of the spec-fiction novel, The Awakened, by Richard Spillman, is:

psalm103and138@...

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 revisit with novelist Veronica Heley, author of Murder by Suggestion (Severn House, June 2018), a story of "crime in the community – with a light touch."

Veronica Heley celebrated the publication of this, her 81st book, in June 2018. She is currently writing two gentle crime series, the Ellie Quicke Mysteries and the Abbot Agency stories, and every now and then contributes a short story about some retired friends to the Methodist Recorder.

She tries but doesn’t always succeed in keeping up with the newest technology, even with help from her friends. She is active in her local church and community affairs, likes to break off work for coffee with friends, and gardens when she can.

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

I play Patience with real cards whenever I get stuck in my stories.

Despite having had a British mum, I had to look up that card game, Veronica! It looks like Patience is the same as our Solitaire. I've become somewhat addicted to the electronic version of the game on my phone. I play a few hands every night before I go to bed.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Murder by Suggestion.

Ellie Quicke is shocked when her daughter, Diana, turns up at her door with suitcases in tow. Bunny Brewster has died of an overdose and Diana’s husband, Evan, is convinced that she is responsible for his friend’s death. It seems that Diana and four other neglected, bored wives of Evan’s friends recently joked about ways to kill their husbands. Diana’s suggested method of murder involved muddling up pills – could this be how Bunny died, or was it just a tragic accident?

Chaos rules when the rest of the wives descend on Ellie, but a further distressing development confirms Ellie’s instinct that there’s more to this than meets the eye. With the safety of her nearest and dearest at risk, can Ellie work out who is responsible, and why?

I know we've featured Ellie here many times, but what would you say it is about Ellie that makes your readers care about her?

Ellie cares about people. She has no great opinion of herself, but has the knack of drawing others out.

Write one sentence for us that tells us something about Ellie as a child. 

She was taught as a child that a woman’s place was in the home and her job in life was to look after her family.

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

I love Anne Tyler’s books, and the latest, Clock Dance, is no exception. It is beautifully written. It is not about anyone globally important, it thumps no tubs, but it enters into the life of a woman who has been given a second chance at having a useful life . . . and may or may not be able to take it. We understand the heroine completely, and identify with her. It is delightful, and sad, and glad . . . and I look forward to Tyler’s next book.

I couldn't agree more with you about Tyler's writing in general, Veronica. I've loved every book of hers that I've read. They're never about anyone who is, as you say, globally important, but they're always so realistic and intriguing, which is the reason I think many of us identify with her heroines.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on another Ellie Quicke story, called Murder for Good. Also I have to think up another short story about my retired friends for Christmas.

Where else can readers find you online?

My website is www.veronicaheley.com

What question would you like to ask my readers?

The story I’m working on now is the twentieth featuring Ellie Quicke. Should she not be thinking of retirement?
