This is a leisurely stroll through the development of a sweet romance between a terrified, fragile, very recently divorced devout Christian woman and the handsome, commitment-phobic detective who is trying to find the stalker who has shaken up her world. While the editing is not all it should be, the story itself is an emotional roller-coaster ride and has a lot to recommend it if this is your style of read.
I am SO EXCITED to share that my friend Melissa Bennett‘s debut novel, Hidden Thorns, is coming out later this month. It’s a genre-bending mash-up of suspense and inspirational romance! Here’s an interview with Melissa with some tantalizing secrets…check it out!
Through RWA I recently found a marvelous workshop by Kristen Painter and Roxanne St. Claire called Midlist to Mad Money. It talks about a way to indie publish your stories that helps readers stay interested once they find you. It’s chock full of great information from two successful romance authors. If you get a chance, I recommend taking the time to go through it.
I haven’t read any Roxanne St. Claire, and I’ve only read a couple of Kristen Painter’s stories from her traditional publishing days, but their books are now on my very long To Be Read list. Here are a couple of their most recent covers!
