My New Romantic Suspense Give-Away! A Special Kind of Double

She’s not equipped to search for her sister alone. She’s even less prepared for what she finds.

Before we look at this week's book, I want to announce that the winner of the free copy of Beneath a Camperdown Elm, by Janet Chester Bly, is:


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 I'd like to tell you about a book I just released, a copy of which I'll give away next week. A Special Kind of Double (Winged Publications, April 2019) is a romantic suspense story.

Here's the book's teaser:

Franny and Grace Otterbridge were always the closest of sisters. But after their father’s death, Grace veered off in a different direction. Now Franny feels she’s lost her. Literally—Grace has gone missing. Franny assumes she’s taken off on another wild hair, but signs soon suggest otherwise.

Franny accepts amateur sleuthing help from new flame Nevan Burns, a young fine artist (who’s also a fine young artist). He proves himself more than good company, and Franny finds herself swinging from one emotion to another, from joy to fear, from anticipation to dread. She’s not equipped to search for Grace alone. She’s even less prepared for what she finds.

Because I usually ask authors to tell us why readers will care about the protagonist...

Franny is bouncing back from a recent, crushing betrayal by her boyfriend and her best friend. She might not have fully forgiven either of them just yet, but she's working on forgetting them. She cherishes the support her mother and her sister, Grace, have given her. The three have always held a tight bond with each other.

But recently Grace has been wilder in her life choices and, in that respect, she's distanced herself from Franny and their mother. When Grace goes missing, Franny's sense of responsibility for her younger sister returns, and her initial annoyance turns into a bit of shame, a lot of concern, and downright fear.

Like all of us, Franny would like to be a better, more unconditionally loving Christian.

This book sounds AMAZING! I did have a time that I misjudged one of my clients due to information given by another client. All of the information appeared to be accurate...at first.......until the informer turned out to be a felon who was running from the law (you can't make these things up!!!!!!). I actually was the one who figured out the informer was not who she said she was and ended up being able to help the police capture her...but pain was done to the one lied about. That was a regret I had a hard time letting go of.......thankfully God forgives and we have to forgive ourselves.

When I first became a supervisor, I listened to a rumor about a new employee. Turned out the gossip was trying to hide their own misdeeds!

I don't have a time I misjudged anyone. jrs0350@yahoo.com

Wow, csthankful, that really does sound like a thriller plot! That's a high bar for the rest of us to match. I know what you mean about the pain the misjudged person might feel. None of us wants to cause that pain.

I think the times I've misjudged people, I've been guilty of deciding who they were before I really knew them. Some people simply take awhile before their personalities are clear. I once worked with a young man who irked me to no end with his know-it-all attitude and hyper behavior. After I knew him longer, I learned he really was quite brilliant (and helpful), and he was both ADD and a total sweetheart. I was very glad I never vocalized any of my early opinions to anyone at work.

As you mention, Neesie, workplace gossip can lead to unfair attitudes and impressions. I'm glad you figured out what was up with the gossiping employee.
