Welcome to the Blog Blitz & Giveaway for the Beauty In Flight series by Robin Patchen, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!




Title: Beauty in Flight (book #1)
Author: Robin Patchen
Publisher: JDO Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 22, 2019

Her beauty once opened doors, but the felony conviction now slams them shut. 

Harper Cloud used to love the gilded glamour of Las Vegas, but on the far side of prison, she sees the cracks in the veneer. These days, she keeps her head down and focuses on the elderly patients in her care. Even her new wealthy east-coast boyfriend, Derrick, can’t entice her away. She’s trusted men before, andlook where that got her.

She tries to brush off the feeling that she’s being watched. She won’t allow a baseless paranoia to derail her life. But when she’s followed home one night, her pursuer gets within a hair’s breadth of grabbing her. She knows it’s time to get away from Las Vegas.

Maybe Derrick can be trusted. Maybe his job offer—to care for his aging grandfather in Maryland—will be the second chance she needs.

But Derrick has secrets of his own, secrets that could take him down–and take Harper with him.

Can there be a second chance for someone like her? 


What about Derrick? He’d sworn he didn’t have expectations for their relationship, but she’d never met a man who didn’t give without expecting something in return. What would he expect from her?

Right now, he acted as if she were his lifeline. He called her every night before bed and again on his way to work every morning. Flew to Vegas to visit her every chance he got.

“You’re my anchor,” he’d told her. “My salvation.”

The words worried her. She could barely take care of herself. How could she be another person’s salvation?

And what did he need to be saved from?

Aside from her family and her Savior, Robin Patchen has two loves—writing and traveling. If she could combine them, she’d spend a lot of time sitting in front of her laptop at sidewalk cafes and ski lodges and beachside burger joints. She’d visit every place in the entire world—twice, if possible—and craft stories and tell people about her Savior. Alas, time is too short and money is too scarce for Patchen to traipse all over the globe, even if her husband and kids wanted to go with her. So she stays in Oklahoma, shares the Good News when she can, and writes to illustrate the unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.

Joshua’s Mission is a new standalone novel in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.

Joshua Kline travels from his farm in Oklahoma to offer aid to an Englisch town on the gulf coast of Texas after a category 4 hurricane has ravaged the area. He brings his brother with him, who needs a change of environment. The last thing he wants for Alton is another brush with the law. He is pleasantly surprised when he hears that Becca Troyer, the bishop’s granddaughter, plans on joining their team.
What will Joshua find when he arrives in Texas? A lack of electricity, certainly, which poses little problem for the Amish volunteers as they help restore order from destruction. But a budding romance? A call from God? And a possible healing of his relationship with Alton?
Joshua’s Mission is a story of love, forgiveness, and the grace of God that carries us through even the worst situations.


Vannetta Chapman writes another amazing Amish story that is so heartwarming, I really wanted to be a part of this book. When Joshua decides to go to Texas to help out with the Englischers who lost so much in the destruction of a horrible hurricane, he never expected all that would happen on this trip. Having his younger brother with him will be a challenge, since he has been getting in to so much trouble at home.

I love the way Ms. Chapman weaves together Amish and Englisch, clearly showing that there is not a lot of difference in the troubles and hardships between the two. Of course the Amish don’t drive, or have electricity in their homes, but that really made the stay in Texas much better with the Amish than those Englishcher were dealing with it. It was fun and interesting reading about them all working together as one group.

And I notice several people mentioning the fact that we shouldn’t be so quick to judge. I’m getting much better at not judging a person by the way they look. Sometimes we miss out on getting to know some wonderful people just because we kinda shun them because they don’t look and act like

we do. I appreciate Ms. Chapman for sending this strong message.

I can go on and on about this book, but you need to read it for yourself and find out what an amazing story this is. Joshua’s Mission is one book that is a keeper for me, so I can read the entire series together. I highly recommend this book for you to read.

I received this book from Harvest House to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
