Giveaway and Guest Post for A Genesis of Seven

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

The Genesis of Seven (The Empyrean Trilogy, #1) By Sara M. Schaller YA Fantasy, Paranormal Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 348 Pages July 7, 2020 by Designs by Seraphim

Eighteen-year-old Jordan Conway has always wanted to help people, but helping seven archangels to achieve their divine duty was never quite what he had in mind…

When Jordan is entrusted by the head nun of his orphanage to deliver a mysterious backpack to a New York City address, he comes unexpectedly face-to-face with Archangel Gabriel. Their acquaintance fast uncovers a labyrinth of secrets that connect Jordan’s once-normal life to an ancient heavenly prophecy. Now, he must help Gabriel to reunite the archangels before evil forces grow too strong.

Soon, Jordan and Gabriel find themselves on a divine quest across the globe, while deep in the pits of Hell, Satan plots his return to earth. To gain control, however, Satan needs the powerful prophetic objects locked safe inside Jordan’s backpack—and the devil will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

With that notion threatening his only family and the safety of his newfound friends, Jordan must do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves and help the archangels succeed. If that means sacrificing all he thought he knew to go to war with the devil himself? Bring it on.

Guest Post for this book!

Jordan’s Tips in Working with an Archangel

Listen when they tell you to do something
The angels have far more experience dealing with the fallen then I do, so I would advise to listen to them. I notice whenever I don’t listen to them, or whenever I am left to decide the outcome of a situation on my own, it usually ends up badly. Mainly with me getting hurt.

Expect the unexpected…at all times
Seriously. When I think I know everything there is to know about angels, they always surprise me with a new detail. Usually that’s really important, like how you’re not supposed to touch celestial objects.

Get used to their constant vigilance and protection
Angels don’t sleep. And they don’t eat. So, they constantly nurture me to make sure I’m taking care of myself. They also never leave my side. I typically have at least one angel with me wherever I go for protection. It’s better to get used to it than fight it. The angels are set in their ways.

Never forget they have a divine duty
Even though they’ve been on Earth for centuries, the angels are here for a reason. They have a divine purpose to defeat evil. It’s easy to forget because they are fun to be around, but when Satan shows up ready for a fight, the reality of who they are becomes all the more serious. Remembering this at all times helps to never underestimate the enemy.

Take the time to get to know them
Each of the angels are unique, and they all have different interests. Trying to understand them goes a long way in actually helping them save the world. It also just makes for good times since I’ve been able to learn so many new things from them.

Grand Finale for Seven Ways to Kill a King By Melissa Wright 

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops you’ll find snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below:

Launch – Note from the Author

Princess Myrina is done hiding. Determined to remove each of the seven kings who stole her mother’s throne, she has every intention of setting things to right, king by murderous king. Her final mark waits in the castle of Stormskeep where her captive sister–the rightful queen and heir to the kingdom–is held by the worst of the kings. . .

Hallie Reads – Excerpt

“What are you playing at, Miri? You know we’ll never get past the guards. We can’t just waltz into the nearest castle and—” He made a vague gesture Miri supposed meant kill a king then shrugged a shoulder. “We should return to Smithsport. You should get on that ship and sail to somewhere safe.”

Any grace he’d earned the night before was forgotten. Miri leaned close. “My sister is captive to those murderous kings. If you think, for one moment, I prize my safety over hers—” Her words cut off at his look, because Miri knew all too well the sacrifice Cass was willing to make. He’d only wanted to save her and make her see that the path she was taking would be the death of them all. “I release you from your duty,” she said.

DEEKAY | Daily Dose of Reading – Review

“I had so much fun reading this book and following the journey of Miri and Cass in this wonderfully-written fantasy story. As a standalone fantasy book, it was done excellently and no wonder it wasn’t a series or part of a series. The way the author wrote this amazing story proved that this book is good without having to have any continuation. I highly recommend this to those who love reading fantasy books with strong protagonists, plenty of good actions, and memorable story that will always stay with you.”

Locks, Hooks and Books – Review

Seven Ways to Kill a King is the first book I have read by Melissa Wright. It will not be the last. I found the writing and plot to be unique and refreshing. I really enjoyed Cass and Miri’s story. I admired the bravery and courage of Miri. The whole book was non stop action and adventure.”

Andi’s Young Adult Books – Excerpt

Cass leaned down to blow on the flame, and when the light flared, it caught his expression. Miri had thought him angry, and certainly, he was, but something else simmered beneath his displeasure. Terric was a queensguard and had been his friend. Miri hadn’t just risked cost to herself. If Terric didn’t make it, it would cost them both.

Wishful Endings – Review

“I seriously loved reading this! I loved that it was a standalone, which is still rare these days (especially in fantasy). Great characters, an intriguing plot with all the feels, plenty of danger and action, and a sweet romance made for an excellent read. I’m excited to see what comes next from this author!”

Getting Your Read On – Review

“This was definitely a plot driven book. . . . The best bits of the book for me were the sneaking, assassin attempts and the fighting. They author did a great job of creating tension with those. I was definitely interested in how the events would play out and the last third of the book was great as far as a climax of events.”

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Excerpt

“Chickens. Maybe a doe.” He met her stare. “It’s not the same.”

“It’s not different.” It was. Killing to eat was not killing to kill. Wild game was no man. It was only a meal.

Cass was trying to scare her because of what she’d done and because they were getting closer to Pirn and the nearness of executing her plan. But there was no turning back. She had no other choice.

Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review

“This is a great action filled story. Miri and Cass are on the move throughout the entire story. I liked all the characters who were backup help to them. I liked the ending because it wasn’t at all how I was predicting it to be. . . . I highly recommend this book to others who like a good adventure.”

Bookishlifetime – Review

“I highly enjoyed this book! It was well-written, and highly entertaining. The story is awesome and it has an interesting plot! I also very much enjoyed the characters.”

Rincón de Joss – Review

“After getting to the end, I was so satisfied with the story and with the ending, something I liked a lot on this book was the detailed descriptions on it, you could actually imagine every place and every situation, so that made you get very immerse in the story from very early on.

It was an awesome fantasy with lots of drama and a little romance along the way.”

Splashes of Joy – Excerpt

Miri had never killed a man. Of course, she’d imagined it. Countless times, she’d envisioned holding each of those kings by the scruff of his neck, tugging his head back, and holding a blade at his throat as she whispered, “The Lion Queen sends her regards.”

She deserved to be scared. But she would not be turned away.

Caffeine Addled Ramblings – Excerpt

“They’ll do it at the festival,” Miri whispered to the air above her bed. “They’ll drag her into the square dressed in Lion silks. They’ll draw her braid behind her shoulder and wrap her wrists in leather and chains.”

She felt the stillness of Cass and that he did not seem to even draw breath. She wished she’d never spoken, but she couldn’t seem to stop. The kings were only holding Lettie hostage to use as leverage against the sorcerers who were tied to queen’s blood. Once she rose into her full power as heir, Lettie would have to be removed from their game.

Library Lady’s Kid Lit – Review

“There is much to like in Melissa Wright’s latest book Seven Ways to Kill a King. You have mythical lands, evil kings, and a princess who wants to make it all right again. There is also fighting, mystery, and romance. Melissa Wright has crafted a well-written fantasy that will draw in many readers. It is action-packed and will keep readers reading.”

Teatime and Books – Excerpt

“In a few days, they would pass near Stormhold, named for the first queen of the realm. Miri couldn’t recall the first time she’d seen the gate, but she’d been in awe without exception since. A massive structure stretched so high that one could barely make out the guards at the top, and carved into the stone of the archway was a relief of the Storm Queen herself.”

The Reading Corner for All – Review

“The author had a great capability to convey the intricacies of Miri’s plot and how she would execute them along with Cass, a bloodsworn soldier whose devotion to Miri suggests a more amorous bond. I loved the premise of the story and the foundation that centered on a young woman who took command of her own story, sought justice for the death of her mother, and strove to reclaim her birthright.”

Seven Ways to Kill a King By Melissa Wright YA Fantasy Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 264 Pages August 10, 2020

She was born a princess. They made her an assassin.

One was an accident. Two a coincidence. By three, they would know. It would be harder, but I would avenge my mother’s death. These kings would pay that price.

Seven cities make up the Storm Queen’s Realm, each of their self-crowned, murderous kings are one of Princess Myrina’s marks. The treasonous curs may have banded together to share a stolen throne, but soon they will fall.

They thought her dead, killed in the massacre. They thought their rule secure, but Myrina of Stormskeep has awoken. With the help of her loyal bloodsworn, the shadow princess of will have her revenge.

For fans of The Witcher and Game of Thrones—a new princess set on vengeance is here to steal your heart.

The Crownless King By Kara Linaburg #CKPrism

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

The Crownless King (The Broken Prince #2) By Kara Linaburg YA Fantasy Paperback & ebook, 275 Pages September 1, 2020

She won’t meet her worst enemy on the battlefield…

War is brewing and the kingdom of Sindaleer is torn as the Knights of Norcir draw the folk to their side. When Sabriel, a specially Gifted, pledges her blood to their cause, she is ready to give all to bring the peace her leader promises. She understands Tirich’s deep hatred toward the king, and has prepared for this moment all her life.But when her identity as a knight is discovered by the childhood friend who betrayed her years ago, Sabriel’s plans for justice come toppling down. Now distracted by what once was, Sabriel fights to hold onto what she’s believed to be true for so long.

Nick never forgot the red-headed lass of years past, but she’s not the friend he remembers. As enemies connected by their past take opposing sides on their country’s freedom, Nick refuses to believe what she’s become.

Voices warning Sabriel she’ll never succeed, and loyalties torn, she begins to realize that all is not as it seems. Tirich’s power is growing stronger, and she fears she was wrong about the good she once saw in him.

The concluding book following The Broken Prince, reminds us of the inner war we all face, and what it means to rise from the ashes when all hope feels lost.

Interview for Splashes of Joy

1. A day in the life of Kara Linaburg?

It depends on the day haha. When I’m not working at my job at Panera Bread, I get up around six, drink my coffee and write for a few hours. Afterwards I try and do some kind of workout, which normally means walking or running for a couple miles. I hang out with my family, read random books, write some more (by this time, outside and barefoot if the weather is nice). I lead a pretty boring life honestly, but it’s mine and I love it.


2. Where is your favorite place to write?

On my back porch. I am a nature child at heart, and I don’t remember a time where I wasn’t happiest outside. We have this glider and I sit there with my laptop until it gets too hot. In the winter though, you can normally find me hanging out at the kitchen table super early before my fam is all up.


3. Do you write with or without music playing?

Both. When a scene is really intense, I’ll turn off the music or if I’m plotting I need lots of quiet. But with editing or just scenes I already have plotted out, I’ll be jamming to lots of music (preferably a nice mixture of alternative rock, indie, and hard rock).


4. What book from your childhood has shaped you most as a writer?

Ohh good question! The Chronicles of Narnia, because that was when I knew I wanted to write the kind of books that showed people the light in themselves as well as the darkness. C.S Lewis did an amazing job at reaching all ages with his in depth yet simple storyworld, and I wanted to create my own.


5. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

I am a mess. 😉 Honestly though, it’s the truth. I didn’t realize how terrible at getting a schedule I was. I’m a very schedule oriented person in other things but NOT writing. I realized how I needed to get myself together and figure out a system instead of just running with it.   


6. If I write a review of your book, what do you want to hear?

That even if you hated my book to death and threw it across the room, that I displayed broken characters in a broken world who showed readers how to rise. That’s the goal of any of my books or characters. It’s why I began writing and it inspires me to keep going when I hear that people got that message from what I wrote.

In all the fairy tales the maiden falls in love with the prince…but she has to remember that this isn’t a fairy tale…

Born into a kingdom where those of magical Gifts are rejected, feared, and even killed, Serena has spent her life striving to hide her ability and keep her younger brother safe.

The bastard son of the hated king and father he hardly knows, Prince Milosh is considered an outcast. He never expects to feel anything but contempt for the peasant girl who unexpectedly shows up in his life, forcing him to answer questions he never wished to ask.

When two very different worlds are thrown together under less than desirable circumstances, both hold deep judgement towards the other. But will they learn to see beyond their stations and birth so that they may defeat the coming darkness, or will labels given to them at birth continue to define them?

A heart-stopping tale about the power of human love, and how each of us are never truly alone.

Silver Moon by Jenny Knipfer

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Silver Moon (By the Light of the Moon #3) By Jenny Knipfer Christian Historical Fiction Paperback & ebook, 411 Pages June 30, 2020

A tale of courage and hope in the darkest of times…

Silver Moon, the third book in the series: By the Light of the Moon, paints a stunning and poignant picture of life on the home front in Webaashi Bay, Ontario, and of three men who are a part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during WWI.

Shamed into joining the war, the tide turns for Luis Wilson when he is steered into the depths of espionage. Injured and presumed missing, will he lose his heart to the very woman who presented him with a white feather?

Oshki and Jimmy offer a grim perspective on life in the trenches. They despair of ever returning home to the women who hold their hearts.

Meanwhile, Lily fights for the cause in her own way and rallies the female troops at home as prejudices run high and the local cafe owner is accused of being a spy.

Will the women of Webaashi Bay receive their men back unscathed? Can the power of love win out over insurmountable odds? All this drama and more plays out under the light of a silver moon.

Fans of WWI historical fiction, Christian historical fiction, and literary fiction will find Silver Moon a moving, powerful read!

Praise for the Book

Taking an original angle on a tumultuous time in history, Silver Moon by Jenny Knipfer is a sparkling slice of historical fiction. Ambitiously detailing a diverse collection of characters, this World War I story bounces across space and time, delicately filled with vivid descriptions, nuanced moral dilemmas, and authentic relationships…” —Self-publishing Review

Silver Moon is a highly recommended read for fans of historical wartime fiction, powerful emotive drama, and excellent atmospheric writing.” —Readers’ Favorite

“I am stunned by the amount of detail the author gave in this single story. On one hand, we have powerful characters… and on the other, we have a plot that demands all our attention. Jenny Knipfer pulls no punches and holds nothing back.” —Readers’ Favorite

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Silver Moon is the third book in By the Light of the Moon series by Jenny Knipfer. Being set in WWI, the story is a bit heart wrenching at times because the men are off at war while the women and family staying behind find themselves struggling at to survive as they await news from those at war.

I enjoyed a visit with the characters from the first two books, as well as the new characters we are introduced to. There are lot of characters and a lot going on in this story and it was hard when I had to put this book down because I wanted to keep reading! I enjoyed the way this author weaves together everything in this story, the characters, history, plot, and gives an ending that we were waiting for. I also enjoyed how faith had a vital part in this story. Patients and forgiveness is sure a big part of this story.

Though this is part of a series, it can be read oo as a standalone. But reading the books together gives you a better outlook on the series, as well as helps with all of the characters in this book, Silver Moon. There are lots of characters, but each has their own unique part in the story and they all play their parts so well. This is a very well written book. Jenny Knipfer is a new author for me, one I will definitely keep contact with. And I can’t wait for the fourth book in this series, Harvest Moon! If you enjoy historical stories, war stories or both, you are covered here. Ms. Knipfer does her research well and it shows on every page of this book. And I have to say, throughout reading this book, I kept singing By the Ligjt of the Silvery Moon! The song is still in my head!

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

About the Author

Born and raised in Chicago, Virginia McCullough has been lucky enough to develop her writing career in many locations, including the coast of Maine, the mountains of North Carolina, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and currently, Northeast Wisconsin. She started her career in nonfiction, first writing articles and then books as a ghostwriter and coauthor. She’s written more than 100 books for physicians, business owners, professional speakers and many others with information to share or a story to tell.

Virginia’s books feature characters who could be your neighbors and friends. They come in all ages and struggle with everyday life issues in small-town environments that almost always include water—oceans, lakes, or rivers. The mother of two grown children, you’ll find Virginia with her nose a book, walking on trails or her neighborhood street, or she may be packing her bag to take off for her next adventure. And she’s always working on another story about hope, healing, and second chances.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

High School Principal, Eric Wells couldn’t believe it when his high school crush Amy Morgan moved back to Bluestone River, with her daughter. And having their first meeting to be one that her daughter was in trouble at school was not the way he wanted them to met, but here she was.

I liked this story from the sstart. But sometimes Amy was annoying because she couldn’t make up her mind when it came to Eric. She kept leading him on. And because he was crazy about her, he just let her. They both needed some adjustments. I like Eric. He was a good principle because of his life growing up. He had a mentor to help him so he passed this on to the school kids, and to Cassie. And he also passed this on to Amy’s grandparents, always seeming to think of their feelings.

This small town was special in the way they pulled together to save their heritage. A town I would love to live in. There were many disagreements, and they seemed to come to decisions to please most. There is so much more going on in this story and author Virginia McCullough does an amazing job of weaving it all together to make A Bridge Home the Heartwarming story it is.

Grand Finale for Falling for the Innkeeper by Meghann Whistler


On Tour with Prism Book Tours

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops

Launch – Author Interview

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I hope this book reminds readers that our pasts don’t have to define us. No matter how badly we’ve been hurt, no matter how long we’ve clung to false beliefs, we can choose to move forward and embrace love and light from this moment forward.

Among the Reads – Review

“While it would have been easy for the author to fall into the trap of giving easy answers and wiping away all the problems perfectly as they rode off into the sunset at the end, she didn’t. The resolution required compromise and while the conclusion was satisfactory, it did not end with everything perfect – making it more realistic and in my opinion, more enjoyable.

This sweet romance was just the right length and moved at just the right pace. . . . If you enjoy sweet romance, be sure to read Falling for the Innkeeper.”

Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review

“I love this story. It has situations good and bad that we all have to deal with in this life. I love the Inn and their little town on the cape. . . . I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a good love story.”

Labor Not in Vain – Review

“This is a heartwarming read, Jonathan and Laura are characters to cheer for throughout. I enjoyed the beautiful setting, and how well they worked together as their friendship grew. There’s a lot to love about this book, with strong themes of faith and family, great character growth and interaction, as well as an absolutely adorable little girl. You won’t want to miss it!”

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review

Falling for the Innkeeper is an adorable story about finding love when you least expect it. It’s also about learning to compromise and give up what you thought you wanted for something even better. . . . I definitely think readers who enjoy inspirational love stories will be fans of Falling for the Innkeeper!”

I’m All About Books – Excerpt

Jonathan adjusted his tie and cuff links, the expensive ones he wore when he wanted to impress. Not that he expected a single mother to even notice his wardrobe. But it was like his battle armor. Look the part, play the part. Get. It. Done.

There were lights on inside the inn, which was a good sign. He left his suitcase in the car, took a deep breath, walked up the brick-lined path to the front door and knocked.

reviewingbooksplusmore – Review

“This book my first book by the Author. It will not be my last. The Author has such great descriptions, and I could visualize the scenes well. I love reading Love Inspired books. I recommend reading this book.”

JoJo’s Corner – Review

“This is such a sweet story! I am a big fan of inspy romance and this book has all the ingredients for a perfectly heartwarming story that will be at the top of your own favorite list.”

Britt Reads Fiction – Review

Falling for the Innkeeper was such a good story! Laura and Jonathan felt like real people making their way through life, carrying burdens from their childhood that colored the way they viewed themselves and others. . . their journey was a joy to read about.

Hearts & Scribbles – Excerpt

Jonathan had always had this idea that if he could just reach that brass ring, if he could just grab it and hold on, that would be the thing that would make everything in his life work the way it was supposed to, the thing that would make everything okay.

But would it? Would it really?

Making partner at the law firm wouldn’t magically fix his father’s illness. Making partner wouldn’t change the fact that he’d been a scared, bullied kid. Making partner wouldn’t mean that his father, who’d gone missing when Jonathan was just seventeen, would ever come home.

@wildflowerbookshelf – Review

“I really enjoyed this book! It honestly was like reading a Hallmark movie! 🥰 I enjoyed the sweetness of it all. I loved the charming town and characters. And the inspiring message throughout.”

Hallie Reads – Review

“As the pair does so, it is easy to fall in love with their story—and them as characters. I enjoyed getting to know Laura and Jonathan, their personalities and backstories, through Falling for the Innkeeper and seeing how they could move from enemies to something else. It is a delightful, fun story, and I now look forward to reading more from Meghann Whistler in the future.”

Tell Tale Book Reviews – Review

Falling For The Innkeeper is a sweet Love Inspired romance. It has a charming setting, great characters, especially the adorable Yankee Doodle singing Emma, and a storyline that manages to be both convicting and entertaining. Meghann Whistler skillfully gets her readers thinking introspectively while delivering a sweetly romantic escape. . .”

Book Lover in Florida – Excerpt

Jonathan tried to go back to his own work, but he couldn’t focus. “Your ex. He’s not very involved?”

“More like he’s not involved at all. He hasn’t even met Emma in person, you know.”

“What?” He felt something hot and fierce tear through him, outraged on her behalf. “How is that even possible?”

Splashes of Joy – Review

“As the story unfolds, so do these characters, and Ms. Whistler weaves together a beautiful story with a wonderful ending. I enjoy this.book for what it is, very sweet romance! And if you like a good clean Romance, this is one you need on your to read list! You won’t put it down until you finish the last page!”

Reading Excursions – Excerpt

She was fleet-footed, practically skipping from rock to rock. Jonathan followed, a little less certain of the path but determined not to fall behind. The boulders were damp and sandy, dried barnacles peppering the sides. She stopped and looked at him over her shoulder. “And Carberry Hotels is one of your clients?”

She was beautiful. She was so beautiful. And underneath the teasing, sometimes tough-girl demeanor, she was sweet, too. Everyone they’d run into during their excursion into town last night had loved her. He couldn’t understand why men weren’t lining up around the block to sweep her off her feet. If he had time for a girlfriend, he’d absolutely be the first person in line.

“Connor Carberry is my friend,” he said. “This deal is like a test case. If it goes through, the whole hotel chain could become a client.”

Because I said so — and other adventures in Parenting – Review

“This book took my heart on so many twists and turns – but it was a wonderful ending. I am super excited to see more from this author. She has written amazing characters, a beautiful setting, and has crafted a flowing storyline.”

What inspired you to write Under the Shade of the Banyan Tree?

Under the Shade of the Banyan Tree is a compilation of poems and short stories. The poems were written over several years. A friend recommended I publish them. Subsequently, I was advised that a book of poems is not necessarily palatable to a lot of people. Hence the idea of adding the short stories to reach more readers.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Laura Lessoway and her mom are at odds because the selling if Laura’s grandmothers house. But her mom is selling it anyway. But when the attorney shows up to put in an offer, it just may change Laura’s mind a bit.

Love Inspired books are so sweet and entertaining. And yes they are like a Hallmark movie, you know what the ending is going to be, you just don’t know what all it takes to get there. And that’s the fun part! Right ladies?

I loved Jonathan from the start and was hoping for so attraction between he and Laura, but you can’t make that happen just reading a book!

Under the Shade of the Banyan Tree

Mundane

We run around everyday

busying ourselves in a mundane routine

Getting the kids off to school

soccer practice, summer camp

Going to work, returning home, working again

making dinner, walking the dog, feeding the cat

Worrying about the future, finances

And the cycle repeats

We dread to stop and think

beyond the mundaneness

We continue like busy little ants until

someone steps on us with a giant shoe

and life is over as we know it

If we survive, we become philosophers

to dispense mundane wisdom

that no one cares to heed

as they are busy, too, living their own mundane lives.

Bookstagram Tour
(With its own giveaway through July 27th.)

Launch – Author Interview

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

First, I hope readers will find a sweet romance at the center of the story. I enjoy writing about two people who don’t want to fall in love but who fall in love anyway. Second and most important, I pray that readers will take one step closer to God because of something they find in How Sweet It Is.

All-of-kind Mom – Review

“Another story about some broken people finding their way.

A story about trusting, forgiveness, and love. . . . Robin Lee Hatcher writes sweet romances that show us God’s love. This book is an excellent [example] of this.”

Simply Susan – Review

“Robin Lee Hatcher’s books have always been an automatic read for me. Her Legacy of Faith series has certainly been very heartwarming and poignant, this book pouring many blessings into my heart. . . . So many precious nuggets were found in this book. Highly recommended.”

Red Headed Book Lady – Review

“When you pick up a Robin Lee Hatcher book you know it’s going to be good! . . . Hatcher has done a nice job in tying the past with the present together once again. . . . I highly recommend this book because you’ll not want to put it down until you finish. This book will leave you feeling full and satisfied after a good read. Kind of like a wonderful dessert.”

Hearts & Scribbles – Excerpt

“Thanks. You too. How are the wedding plans?”

“That’s why I’m here. Holly and I were going over wedding-cake ideas and looking at all the bride magazines I could find.”

Jed took a half step back. “Sounds like I’m intruding after all.”

“No, you’re not. We’re done. I was about to head home.” Trixie tipped her head slightly to one side.

Jed had the sudden feeling that he was being measured, studied, put under a microscope. Not a comfortable sensation.

Britt Reads Fiction – Review

“This novel was a nice way to round out the Legacy of Faith series. I believe that it can be read and understood without reading the first two books in the series. However, I feel that I had a greater appreciation for the historical portion of the novel because I have read the entire series.

I thought that Jed and Holly’s relationship growth throughout the story felt realistic.”

ReviewsByErin – Review

“There was a beautiful layer of faith presented, and hope for those facing family conflicts. I can imagine a lot of people will enjoy this as a light read. I would highly recommend reading the whole series to get the full impact of Andrew’s story.”

fierymermaidbooks – Review

“I loved this book! It made me want to bake a million things! . . . The family aspect was also super interesting! If you are looking for a great contemporary, then I suggest this one!”

Ponderings from the Inglenook – Review

“The story is one of healing and love and family and belonging. You go on the journey with Holly and Jed, two people who are dealing with their own set of struggles of trust, hurt and wanting something more. Along with their story, is the story of Jed’s grandfather, Andrew. Popping back and forth from present day to Grandpa Andrew’s day, the story of family and legacy is told. It was a heartwarming story that slowly took you from one place to the next with each chapter.”

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review

How Sweet It Is is just as sweet as its title suggests! It’s a clean, inspirational romance that will challenge you to trust that God has your future in His hands. . . . The characters and the love that develops between them are very believable. But I think that the best part of the book is watching God’s plan unfold. . . . I have always loved Robin Lee Hatcher’s books, and How Sweet It Is is no exception.”

reviewingbooksplusmore – Review

How Sweet It Is was a book that had me hooked from the very first word. I love reading books that connect with two time periods.

I loved Andrew and Helen’s story that was set in 1969 to 1970. They had such a fantastic love story. . . . The characters were so real to me. I could visualize what they were doing.”

Daysong Reflections – Review

“As can be expected, How Sweet It Is uses Andrew’s bible to once again bring a family member back to their walk of faith. . . . It was encouraging to read about how seeming coincidences actually became evident as the obvious leading of the Lord.

A sweet romance, How Sweet It Is was easy to read and enjoyable. Although filled with scripture references, the faith element was not intrusive and did not detract from the story.”

Two Points of Interest – Spotlight

Pause for Tales – Review

“There was many beautiful lessons and truths in this story that pulled at my heartstrings. I enjoyed watching each of the people grow into better versions of themselves as they took away lessons from their ancestor Andrew Henning. This was a beautiful story of family and their legacy of faith and what that can mean for generations.”

Splashes of Joy – Review

“I have read many of Robin Lee Hatcher’s books and love them all, and was excited to read and review this one. There is so much in this story, twists and turns that surprise you, making it a wonderful and entertaining read. If you enjoy a good clean Christian fiction, you don’t want to miss How Sweet It Is. Because Jed and Holly’s story truly is a really sweet story.”

Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review

“This is a really nice love story, within a love story. . . . The characters were all portrayed well and very endearing. Although this [drama] was very predictable, it was very well written and inspiring.”

Read Review Rejoice – Excerpt

“Holly, you may be older than me, but you don’t know much about men. Have you noticed the way he looks at you?”

It frightened her, thinking Trixie might be right. It frightened her even more, thinking she wanted her sister to be right. “Don’t.”

“Don’t what?”

“Don’t read too much into it. I . . . I’m not ready.”

Adventurous Bookworm – Review

“I was elated when I found that I’d get to read the third book of this series. I had read book two at its release last year and was eagerly waiting to read this one. I am happy to say that it lived up to my expectations. . . . All in all, I enjoyed this last book and it was definitely the uplifting read that I had been craving.”

Locks, Hooks and Books – Review

“I loved this sweet and delightful read. I adored Jed and Holly. They had perfect chemistry, making the book fun and entertaining. There was a little twist and turn I did not expect which made the story quite unpredictable. . . . I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean and inspiring romance.”

Labor Not in Vain – Review

“I loved returning to the Hennings family as this book continues to follow Andrew and Helen decades previous, while also catching up with their descendants in the present. The dual timelines are well written and compliment each other well. I loved the themes of faith and commitment, as Jed takes time to consider things he hasn’t had time for the in the past. A heartwarming and enjoyable read about family, faith, new opportunities and lasting love.”

Loraine D Nunley, Author – Review

“This was a sweet romance. I liked the chemistry between Holly and Jed. . . . I would recommend this as a quick clean inspirational romance. This is the third book in the series. It reads well as a stand alone.”

Uplifting Reads – Excerpt

His smile made a shiver run down her spine. A pleasurable kind of shiver. One of anticipation. Something flickered in his eyes. Understanding, perhaps. With it, his smile faded. His eyes seemed to darken as he gazed intently into hers. His right hand rose to cup her cheek, the flat of his hand gentle against her skin. She couldn’t help but press into it. She was tempted to close her eyes, but she didn’t want to break the look passing between them. His face drew closer. Was this happening?

“Holly.” He whispered her name, as soft as a caress.

She feared her knees would buckle. Breathe, she reminded herself. Just breathe.

Hallie Reads – Review

How Sweet It Is is a sweet story from Robin Lee Hatcher indeed . . . As romance and understanding grow, the present timeline complements Andrew’s one in the past to deliver a valuable message about trusting God through the good and the bad. Readers who have enjoyed the Legacy of Faith thus far are sure to enjoy this book; it is a satisfying conclusion.”

Remembrancy – Review

How Sweet It Is has some light-hearted moments that made me smile and some tougher moments that had me reaching for the tissues. Throughout the book, the message of the power, importance, and comfort of spending time digging into God’s word and building a strong relationship with Him rings through. This is an excellent end to the series, and like the author, I am sad to say goodbye to Andrew and his descendants.”

Jorie Loves A Story – Review

“I love authors who can hook us into the emotional framework of a character immediately after we’ve started to read their story. With Hatcher, you don’t have to wait long, as even within the Prologue of How Sweet It Is – you are rooted into the emotional heartache and anguish of Jed. . . . What I enjoyed the most though – is seeing how two ordinary people who weren’t expecting anything extraordinary to happen to them suddenly find themselves in the middle of their own romance story! And that dear hearts, is why I kept turning the pages. . .”

Among the Reads – Review

“Lovers of more serious stories with the light of faith shining through will want to be sure to read How Sweet It Is. And while it easily stands alone, it builds on the events of the previous books of the Legacy of Faith series, so you’ll want to be sure to read them as well.”

Tell Tale Book Reviews – Review

“As with the previous books in the Legacy Of Faith series Robin Lee Hatcher presents a sweet romance combined with the reality of the messiness of family. . . . As much as I enjoyed the romance between Holly and Jed . . . it was still the sections with Andrew that I most looked forward to. Across three books he’s gone through tragedy and triumph from young manhood to retirement age. He has faced each struggle with love and a faith that is to be admired. . . . It was just as wonderful, and bittersweet, as its predecessors. It is very much a book that you shouldn’t miss.”

Beauty in the Binding – Excerpt

Inside, Pumpkin welcomed her home with a loud meow. After setting aside her purse, Holly picked up the cat and buried her face in the feline’s long hair.

“Sweetheart, what am I going to do?”

Pumpkin answered with a purr.

“You never lie to me, do you? You’re just who you say you are.”

She carried the cat with her into the living room, stopping long enough to turn on the lamp before settling onto the sofa.

“I’m at the end. I don’t know what to do. God, I need Your help. There’s no hope without You.”

Reading Excursions – Review

“This is the first book I’ve read by author Robin Lee Hatcher. And, it is a wonderful, sweet, darling, inspirational, and beautifully written story for the most part. The short chapters make it an extremely quick read. . .

The biggest message I loved from this book was in practicing grace when dealing with family and friends when it comes to conflicts and reconciliation.

Readers of the previous books in the series as well as fans of the author will more than likely enjoy this story.”

I’m Into Books – Spotlight

Peaceful Pastime – Review

How Sweet It Is the third book in the Legacy of Faith Series by Ms. Hatcher and I will say that it truly is a sweet, endearing novel. I absolutely adore a dual timeline and the author certainly had me engaged in the family saga from start to finish. . . . I thought this book was beautifully crafted with charming characters and one that will make you cry at times and one that will stay with you after you have finished reading it.”

How Sweet It Is
(Lagacy of Faith, #3)
By Robin Lee Hatcher
Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 304 Pages
July 14th 2020 by Thomas Nelson

He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.

Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.

Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.

Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.

Grand Finale for Healing their Hearts

Launch – Author Interview

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

My main hope for my readers is that they will feel whole and refreshed after reading Healing Their Hearts. It isn’t just a fluffy story because it does deal with fostering a child, possibly past secrets, and family struggles, but it is a light read because I love including humor, faith, and fun into my novels.

 

With his back pressed snug up against the wall in the narrow hallway, Mark knocked on the door. “Lainee? I need you to respond to me. I won’t hurt you, I promise. My name is Mark. Remember me? Can you say something for me?”

The three-year-old remained silent. Mark tipped his head back against the ramshackle wall and sent up a silent prayer. So far, he wasn’t getting anywhere, and they’d arrived on the scene well over an hour ago.

A neighbor had reported that Steve was being belligerent, and Brenda had been spotted with a fresh purchase of booze. Though both had denied it, the last straw had been drawn, and that was the end of it.

 
Remembrancy – Review
 

“…at its heart, this book is about family—the family you’re born with and the one who surrounds you when you marry and the ones you work and live the day in and day out with.

Overall, this sweet read is one that left me feeling happy and hopeful and there’s plenty of potential for more to come with the residents of Believe.”

 
Britt Reads Fiction – Excerpt
 

“Believe’s biggest weekend is upon us, ya’ll,” Noah declared, gesturing to the normal amount of traffic on Main Street. “As you can see by all this traffic.”


Liam paused with his paint roller dangling off the ground, squinting into the early morning sun. “You do realize it’s just you and me listening, right? Also, quit yakking and start brushing. This needs to dry sooner than later.”

“Maybe you should’ve painted the giant red BerryPepper smack dab in the middle of Main Street a little sooner than the Friday of BerryPepper days.”

Hallie Reads – Excerpt
 

“I’d like to be able to talk to all five of you, but this will do for now. First of all, as your father, I’m proud of all of you. Liam, you impress me every single day with your bravery and loyalty to both your family and your job. You work hard to support your wife and children, and I’m proud of you for it. To my youngest sons, I’m impressed by your drive and devotion to this ranch. It’s not a small undertaking. Luke, I’ve seen you come a long way in the past year, and I have no doubt that you’ll be a wonderful father come September. I can see how happy you make your wife, and that’s all the indication I need to know how loved your daughter will be. Noah, you’ve had a lot thrown at you these past months—a little bad with a lot of good. You’re a hardworking young man, and you’re going to be a fine husband. All I’m saying is that I’m proud of you. All of you.”

“Aw, Dad.” Noah offered a goofy grin. “Who knew Allen McKay was such a softie?”

“Your mother,” Dad teased. “Why do you think she married me?”

 


It was evenings like this that made Emma wish Liam had a different career of choice. Yes, he was safe at home and they were safe up here at the river, but she longed for her husband to be here enjoying the weekend at the river. Playing cards, sitting around the campfire, going for a family pontoon ride at sunset.

But then her thoughts would rationalize because she knew how much he loved his police work. And even with lonely hours, she would never truly wish for him to work elsewhere.

Emma quietly eased out of the bed she was sharing with Ava, grabbed her phone and a blanket, and slipped out of the trailer into the cool evening air. The breeze had died down to nothing and locusts and crickets created an ambience of night sounds as Emma tiptoed down to the pontoon, the flood light illuminating her way.

 

“If you’re looking for a sweet story that makes you smile, and brings hope, then this is the book for you. All the characters are relatable, and I felt as if I could become friends with any of them. Even the town itself was one I could find myself either visiting, or possibly even living there!”

 


Eva didn’t reply, her gaze falling to her coffee mug. She couldn’t really talk, because it was rare that she let people in. Even simply talking to Mark was way outside of her comfort zone.

“I’m sorry if I—”

“What? No.” She bit her lip. “I just don’t really—I’m not accustomed to people, um, caring about me. Not that you, you know, care about me. I mean—that doesn’t…” She finally stammered to a stop, her cheeks hot.

A hand on hers made her look up. “I do care about you, Eva, contrary to what you might think,” he said softly. “So does everybody in this town, whether you’ve been here forever or not. And to prove just how much, may I ask you out for supper Saturday night?”

 
Splashes of Joy – Review

“I really did enjoy this sweet family story. And I love and appreciate the [way] this author weaves the Christian life and faith into her characters. The wedding scene was so sweet it brought tears, and it was just a joy to read a book like this about family. If you love a sweet family story set in a neat little town, this is one you need to read.”

Heidi Reads… – Excerpt

“You like her.” Sam pointed her spoon at him. “You like Evangeline!”

He let his shirt fall into place and crossed to the freezer. “You’re off duty and it’s past your bedtime. Stop throwing accusations around.”

“Mark Bryant MacLaughlin, you’re in denial.” Sam shut the freezer door before he could grab his ice cream. “Admit it. You. Like. Evangeline. Taylor!”

“Could you not yell in my face?” Using his height to his advantage, he blocked her with his shoulders, then grabbed the butter pecan gelato. “I didn’t say I like her, and I haven’t given you cause to think that. Now, if you could excuse me, I’d like to enjoy my ice cream before work.”

 
 

Healing Their Hearts is a light, gentle read that follows 4 main characters through the ups and downs of daily life in a small Nebraska town. . . . The theme of family – the circle you’re born into & the circle you intentionally gather around you – is sweetly presented, with a maturity beyond the author’s years. This is the kind of book that leaves you with hope in humanity and confidence in the grace of God, as well as a smile on your face and in your heart.”

 

Healing their Hearts is a story full of friendships, family, and more. Liam and Emma was an amazing couple. . . . I loved all the children in the book. . . also a lot of surprises with Eva’s family.”

“Good.” Mark set his things down and took the bait from Lainee. “Okay, Lainee, can you wait for a second while I help Eva bait her hook?”

“That be ’kay.” Lainee pointed to a white butterfly. “Fly!”

“Pretty butterfly, huh?” Eva asked. “Just as pretty as Lainee.”

Lainee giggled and squatted down to examine a rock several feet back from the creekbank. Mark kept his eye on her as he tied a hook onto Eva’s fishing line, then opened the container of bait from the gas station.

“Under normal circumstances, I would require you to bait your own hook,” he told Eva. “That was Dad’s rule growing up—for boys and girls. But because of your wrist, I’ll make an exception.”

 

“Miss Taylor.”

Eva spun around, swallowing when she looked up into the face of Mark MacLaughlin. “Hey.”

Really? That’s all you can say?

The corners of his gray-blue eyes crinkled, and he slipped his capable hands into the pockets of his slacks. “I was hoping I’d see you here today.”

“You were?” she squeaked. This time she didn’t even bother to chastise herself. She was working hard enough trying to keep the flush out of her face.

 
 

“I enjoyed reading this story with all the friendships and love. I like the town of Believe. The community is close and I love the way they have faith.

The characters are many and each on is well-developed and easy to love. It is also easy to feel their emotions. . . . I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy good romance and friendships.”

 

I don’t know how I’m going to do it, bro.” Luke dropped his forehead against the window. “Katie is going to be a tiny little human and I’m supposed to, well, basically prevent her from dying?”

Liam’s brow furrowed and he leaned around the cab of his truck. “Where did that come from?”

“Liam, it’s, what? June eleventh? That means we’re about three and a half months from Rae’s due date. What if I fail?” His face paled. “Would you charge me with murder?”

“Nope. I’d have Cam do it.”

Luke threw a sponge at him. “That’s not funny!”

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

This is my first story by Cleopatra Margot and I enjoyed this young author’s story. Being the 6th book in this series, it was a little confusing at first trying to get to know and figure out all of the characters. Though after a while I was ok with the characters, I think reading the other books in this series in order would help, as well as you would enjoy the full stories. I could stay in the little town of Believe, Nebraska for a good while. This is where Liam and Emma live with their children, living their everyday life. But they we not without struggles. Being a police officer, and being married to an officer has it’s own difficulties. I will say it was nice reading a book with a police officer as a character and seeing the respect everyone has for Liam.

I really did enjoy this sweet family story. And I love and appreciate the was this author weaves the Christian life and faith into her characters. The wedding scene was so sweet it brought tears, and it was just a joy to read a book like this about family. If you love a sweet family story set in a neat little town, this is one you need to read.

How Sweet It Is by Robin Lee Hatcher

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

How Sweet It Is (Lagacy of Faith, #3) By Robin Lee Hatcher Christian Contemporary Romance Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 304 Pages July 14th 2020 by Thomas Nelson

He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.

Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.

Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.

Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

How Sweet It Is is a very sweet story! I loved getting to know Holly and Jed and watching their characters develop as the plot progressed. Both characters had complicating issues in their life and we definitely not looking for a relationship. My heart went out to Jed as he tried contacting his brother, but the way Ms. Hatcher weaves their difficult lives into the story shows us a lot about ourselves and how issues like this can happen in families. It also shows Redemption through is only through our God, but again, the writing talents of Ms. Hatcher adds this in a subtle way that just fits so well with the story.

I have read many of Robin Lee Hatcher’s books and love them all, and was excited to read and review this one. There is so much in this story, twists and turns that surprise you, making it a wonderful and entertaining read. If you enjoy a good clean Christian fiction, you don’t want to miss How Sweet It Is. Because Jed and Holly’s story truly is a really sweet story.

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

Christmas in Bayberry by Jennifer Faye Grand Finale

 


On Tour with Prism Book Tours

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops
you’ll find snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below:

Launch – Note from the Author

Thank you for joining me for the Christmas in Bayberry blog tour!

I know it’s hot here in the northern hemisphere and not exactly Christmastime but… maybe that’s the best time to visit a small town in snowy Vermont. So grab a nice cold drink and curl up to take an armchair vacation in a warm, cozy town. . .

Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review

“This is truly a Christmas reading delight! . . . This tale is such a relaxing drama, enclosed within a small town full of “Christmas Spirit”. although quite predictable, it is endearing and the characters and scenes”draws one in”.”

Pause for Tales – Review

“If you are looking for a little Christmas in July, look no further than Christmas in Bayberry. And if you adore Hallmark movies, you will enjoy this story from Hallmark Publishing. . . . As Wes and Kate navigate business and their attraction to each other grows, both of their dreams become at risk. Finding out what is most important to each other made this heartwarming story a welcome read.”

Books with Bethany – Review

“This is truly the sweetest Christmas book I’ve read in quite sometime . . . Jennifer’s writing and detailed descriptions have you feeling as if you are in this small town Vermont. . . . I highly recommend this beauty to get you in the holiday spirit!”

Remembrancy – Review

“The temperature outside may be in the 90s right now, but Christmas in Bayberry put me right in the holiday mood. Though a bit predictable (but Hallmark wouldn’t be Hallmark without their signature happy endings, now would they?), it is a sweet and fun escape.”

Angel’s Guilty Pleasures – Excerpt

Wes stepped up to his boss’s very large oak desk. “Here’s the file you requested. Everything should be in there.”

“Thank you.” Mr. Summers took the folder, then gestured to the two charcoal gray chairs in front of his desk. “Take a seat.”

Wes was torn between doing what the president of the company wanted or speaking up about his pending meeting. After all, Mr. Summers had the final say on who got the promotion. Wes had to stay on the man’s good side, but he also had to get his work done.

Wes’s mouth grew dry. He swallowed hard. “Sir, I’m expected in the conference room on the twelfth floor right now.”

Mr. Summers leaned forward, resting his elbows on the large oak desk. “They can wait.” His gray brows drew together in a formidable line. “This is important.”

Splashes of Joy – Review

“This is my favorite book that I have read by Jennifer Faye. It is a Hallmark Christmas Story, so if you are a fan of Hallmark movies, you will love this one! . . . If you love sweet, cozy, snowy, small town Christmas stories, Christmas in Bayberry is a must for you! I [thoroughly] enjoyed this Christmas in July read, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, whether you read it in July, or closer to Christmas!”

I’m Into Books – Spotlight

Jorie Loves A Story – Review

“In true Hallmark Channel fashion, this is a story which has an HEA and a homey afterglow – where you know that for the towne of Bayberry, nothing is ever impossible until you reach the point where you cannot believe in the small miracles which evoke the most change in your life.”

Cover Lover Book Review – Review

“In the classic Hallmark style, Christmas in Bayberry is a swoony, feel-good, cozy read. And Bayberry, Vermont is the pinnacle setting to tug me into the Christmas (in July) mood. . . . If you enjoy a rosy-clean slow-burn romance and second chances in a magical holiday atmosphere, you’ll surely sink into Christmas in Bayberry (and you may not want to leave.)”

Peaceful Pastime – Review

“I have read several books penned by Jennifer Faye and this was my favorite so far, The idyllic setting of Bayberry, Vermont, the close knit community and their Christmas festivities brought the story to life before my eyes. . . . I thought this was a fantastic book that is suitable for all ages and would make a perfect Christmas gift for the reader in your life. It flows at a great pace, it held my interest throughout . . .”

Reviewingbooksplusmore – Review

“I enjoyed this book so much. I can definitely see it as a Hallmark Christmas Movie. . . . A story I enjoyed reading as a Christmas in July book. I definitely recommend reading this book.”

E-Romance News – Excerpt

“Bayberry Candle Company” was printed across the top of each sheet. The breath caught in her throat. This was it—the evaluation of the company.

Kate knew she shouldn’t look, but it was like watching a train accident: You just couldn’t turn away. As she assembled the pages in numeric order, she noticed on the next-to-last sheet a header that read: “Conclusions.”

Her heart clenched. She stared at the words.

Please let it be a vote to keep the business operating.

Please. Please. Please.

Her gaze skimmed down the page. And then it stopped.

Reading Is My SuperPower – Review

“Jennifer Faye captures the small town charm of a Hallmark movie and weaves it into a sweet romance with a nod to Christmas miracles. Well-written & entertaining, the story also balances Hallmark’s comforting predictability with a couple twists & turns that may still surprise you. The characters are warm & likable and you’ll want to book a trip of your own to the quaint town of Bayberry!”

Reading Excursions – Review

“It’s beautiful, moving, and so heartwarming. . . . It was an absolutely delightful read. The small town “every one works there or knows someone who does” plot line was perfection. . . . I highly recommend this sweet book for those who LOVE clean, feel good, small-town Christmas romances. Fans of Hallmark movies will more than likely love this story. And, I’m pretty certain fans of the author will be delighted as well.”

Ponderings from the Inglenook – Review

“Immediately upon opening the pages of this book, I was transported to snowy, small towns, twinkling fairy lights and hot chocolate curled up by the fireplace. This is my first book by Jennifer Faye, but it won’t be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed this cozy Christmasy read.”

Harlie’s Books – Review

“. . . I was totally invested in the town, Kate and Wes but also in the story. Ms. Faye is an excellent storyteller and takes her time here. It’s in-depth, romantic, heartwarming, and just overall a great book to read now in the heat of the summer. . . Do yourself a favor and start reading Ms. Faye. Especially this book. It will warm your heart. And yes, I could see it as a Hallmark Movie. Psst…I’d watch it, too.”

Katherinelovesbooks – Review

“I absolutely fell in love with this book. It has such great festivity vibe with all the happy, jolly moments. Bayberry, as a place not only sounds amazing but at the same time it seems magical. Our protagonists Kate and Wes were beautifully written. The plot is engaging right from the beginning. A heartwarming story for everyone who believes in unexpected miracles.”

Musings of a Sassy Bookish Mama – Review

“Jennifer Faye is a new to me author and it was very enjoyable to read her style of writing. She had me engaged throughout the whole book. . . . If you are looking for a good-feel story and something to get you in the holiday spirit then you should definitely grab this book. It definitely made me wish for Christmas decorations, warm cozy socks, sitting by the fire with a Christmas music in the background!”

Hallie Reads – Review

“Jennifer Faye’s Christmas in Bayberry is exactly what I expect from a Hallmark Christmas story: predictable, but also fun, cozy, and heartwarming. For me, it was a much-needed reprieve from the summer heat . . . So, it is easy to say that I enjoyed Christmas in Bayberry. I think it makes a delightful read; make space for it in your holiday-reading stack—or pick it up for a seasonal escape today.”

Locks, Hooks and Books – Review

“I am giving Christmas in Bayberry a very well deserved five plus stars. I would love to read more like this one by Miss Faye in the future. I recommend this one to readers who are Hallmark fans and those who like to read clean Christmas books.”

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review

Her Surprise Engagement by Cari Lynn Webb Grand Finale

 

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

 

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops
you’ll find snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below:

Launch – Note from the Author


Welcome to my blog tour with Prism!

I’m thrilled to be celebrating the release of my new book, Her Surprise Engagement, in my series City by the Bay Stories with Harlequin Heartwarming. Her Surprise Engagement is a sweet contemporary romance that brings together single mom, Nichole Moore and football star, Chase Jacobs. . .

Hallie Reads – Review
 

Her Surprise Engagement is just such a delight to read. A sports romance with a fake relationship and friends-to-more… It all works so well together, especially with Nichole and Chase as the lovable couple at the center of it. Their personalities may be opposite in several ways, but their chemistry is undeniable. I easily enjoyed this romance.”

Remembrancy – Review
 

“I was drawn into this story from the get-go because it was both fun and heartwarming. . . . Add in both Nicole’s and Chase’s families and Cari Lynn Webb has delivered a sweet, sometimes humorous, and all-around enjoyable story.”

Hearts & Scribbles – Excerpt
 

He held out his hand. “Do we have a deal then?”

She set her hand in his. “We’re in a business arrangement.”

“We’ve been friends too long to ink our fake marriage with a handshake.” And because he’d always been a risk-taker, he stood and pulled her toward him. “Let’s seal the deal correctly?”


 

“Webb places you into her storyline rather immediately – you instantly know what is mot important to the lives of her characters simply by observing where we’re meeting them in the text. Nichole and Chase have rather immediate needs at the start of this novel which allows the story to unfold at a quicker pace than others. I enjoyed seeing how Webb was going to heal the distance between them but also, tuck closer to whom they’ve become whilst they’ve been apart. . . this is a story that is anchoured by a resolve of unquestioning trust between two best friends who understand each other better than they understand themselves.”

Pause for Tales – Review
 

“What a super cute and romantic read this one was. Marriage of convenience stories are my favorite trope, and this one was pretty close. . . . I really enjoyed this sweet little story that left me smiling all the way to the end.”

Wishful Endings – Excerpt
 

“I like Nichole.” Nonna adjusted the colander in the sink and nodded at Chase to empty the pot. “I like her a lot.”

“I like Nichole too.” And he did. More than he wanted to admit.

“You can’t treat her like the others, Chase.” Nonna picked up the potato ricer and handed it to Chase. “Her heart is good. She’s not used to your lifestyle.”

“What others?” Chase grabbed another mixing bowl and the potato ricer. He’d dated other women. Nothing serious. Nothing lasting. He wouldn’t have asked any of his past girlfriends to act as his pretend wife. One would’ve misinterpreted the pretend part. Two would’ve reminded him that marriage wasn’t part of their five-or ten-year career plans.

“Oh my goodness. I immediately sighed internally after reading the last few pages of this book and I think my eyes literally turned into hearts. These two are beyond words! This book was such a sweet, adorable mix of fake relationship and friends to lovers, which are two of my favorite romance tropes. It was a match made in heaven. The chemistry between Chase and Nichole was off the charts and crazy cute!”

“This friends-to-more / fake marriage story has some super swoony kisses, sweet moments & great characters. The author draws you into the story right away & keeps your attention until the end – and you’ll be rooting for Chase & Nicole’s fake relationship to become real. A cute weekend read you’ll enjoy!”

 

“Nichole has a son that makes the book enjoyable. I love how they do things together with her son. . . . Her Surprise Engagement has a lot of family and friends. I loved all the different relationships.”

 
Splashes of Joy – Review
 

“Chase and Nicole are wonderful characters. I love the way their lives intertwine and I really loved following their journey of their fake marriage. . . . There is a lot going on in this story, twists and turns weaved throughout that make the story well worth your read.

I have read a number of Cari Lynn Webb’s books and have enjoyed them all, and this one is no different. I love reading the sweet Heartwarming romances from Harlequin . . .”

 

He stepped closer to her. “Let’s make a deal.”

Deal? Nichole moved toward him and tipped her head to lock her gaze on his. The last deal she’d made with Chase had her married to him. How much worse could it get? “What do you have in mind?”

“You make your food.” He grimaced and recovered. His gaze warmed and searched her face. “I’ll make my version and we see which one everyone prefers.”

“What are you making exactly?” Nichole eyed him. He reached forward, brushed her hair off her shoulder. His touch light and swift. But the effect left her restless and wishful. She cleared her throat. “It has to be healthy, no ice cream or brownies to sway the vote.” No more tugs on her heart to sway her resolve.

 

“This story had a lot of fun tropes within it: friends to more, second chance romance, fake marriage, and one of the characters was a famous sports figure. . . . It was enjoyable to watch as their fake relationship turned to more.”

Peaceful Pastime – Review
 

Her Surprise Engagement is a fun and super cute read that kept me entertained throughout the entire novel. . . . I got to know the characters and felt like I was part of everything that was going on in their lives.  This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. If any reader is looking for a truly heartwarming novel than I recommend this one.”

 
Harlie’s Books – Excerpt & Review

Nichole gathered the extra clothing they hadn’t used for their snowmen.

Chase picked up a scarf, shook off the snow and set it gently on the pile she held. He asked, “Want some help with lunch?”

She wanted help remembering their kiss had been a mistake. She wanted help putting a wedge between him and her son. She wanted help reminding herself this was all pretend. “We’ve got it. Don’t you want to go explore with the boys?”

He tugged her hat over her forehead. “We never talked about that kiss. Or our options.”

“I’ve read every book in the series and this is my favorite.  I don’t try to play favorites but I just loved Chase and Nichole.  For me, the book had a great storyline, perfect pacing, the situations that they went through, and let’s not forget that this one is hilarious.  Ms. Webb has really written a well-thought-out, pitch-perfect story about two people that were childhood friends that reconnect in the most hilarious situation.”

 

“Oh how I love friends-to-more sweet romances. And this one fits the bill perfectly. I was drawn in from the first lines, because it let me know, right off, what kind of story I was getting into. Good, clean romance. . . . this story is enjoyable, flows well,  and has excellent character development. . . . This is a charming friends-to-more romance that gives you sighs and smiles throughout.”

 
 

“The novel is a perfect read for readers who like a cozy romantic read. I thought the characters were well developed and likable. I felt that Nichole shouldn’t have lied to her son about her relationship with Chase. Thankfully, since this a heartwarming romance novels, things have a way of working out for the best.”


“I want to protect him.” From Chase. From getting hurt. From suffering. And she wanted to protect herself. But she worried she might already be too late.

Her grandmother shuffled back to the stove. “Sometimes the best we can do is love them with all we’ve got.”

“And when they get hurt?” Nichole picked up the salad bowl.

“We love them that much harder.”

Nichole clutched the stainless steel bowl against her stomach. “Is that enough?”

“Love is always enough.” Her grandmother smiled and tipped her head toward the wide windows.

 
Reading Excursions – Review
 

“I loved the message of seeing beyond appearances, as well as loving harder, and love is always enough in this sweet, feel-good read. Webb clearly knows how to write a story that touches on what we all want from life – whether it be a career or family, even a second chance.”

 
Teatime and Books – Excerpt
 

He sat on the couch beside his grandmother and checked his phone again.


“Something more important on your phone than your family?” Nonna dabbed a napkin against her cheek.

“I’m waiting to hear from Nichole.” Chase flipped his phone over in his hands. Had Nichole changed her mind about car pool pickup? About their deal? “This wasn’t the way it was supposed to go.”

Nonna placed her hand on his arm, drawing his gaze to her wisdom-aged whiskey-brown eyes. “We can plan all we want, but love has its own mind and its own agenda.”

 
 

“Her Surprise Engagement was another great read by Cari Lynn Webb. I have read and enjoyed her books in the past and this one is probably among one of my favorites by her. I loved the chemistry between Nichole and Chase. . . . I am giving Her Surprise Engagement a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend this for readers who enjoy sports romance.”

Happy 50th Book Release to Regina Scott

Happy 50th Book Release to Regina Scott with THE ARTIST’S HEALER! #Regina50


On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Regina Scott On Her 50th Release
When my first book, The Unflappable Miss Fairchild, was published, I never dreamed I’d have the chance to publish 49 more books. It was enough to know a publisher had taken a chance on me, that the story in my head and my heart would reach readers. I have loved the Regency period for years, so it’s not surprising that many more stories set in that time period would urge me to tell them, culminating in the publication of The Artist’s Healer, the third book in my Grace-by-the-Sea series. Over the years, I’ve been blessed to be able to delve into other eras and locations as well: pioneer Seattle, turn-of-the-century Texas, the old West. Many, many thanks to all my readers for allowing me to be a part of their lives. 50 books! Who knew? Here’s to many more adventures ahead!

Grace-by-the-Sea: Where romance and adventure come home.

Spunky artist and entrepreneur Abigail Archer is determined to see her friend, Jesslyn Denby, restored as director of the spa at Grace-by-the-Sea, even if that means ousting the news physician who took her place. A shame she was recently injured and requires him to dance attendance on her. But if he thinks she’ll meekly accept his orders, he’d better think again!

Doctor Linus Bennett came to the little coastal village with his young son to escape a troubled past. He’s not about to lose his post to some crusader, but the pretty painter awakens feelings he’d thought long buried. When it appears the French are about to invade, Abigail and Linus must work together to save the village. In doing so, the doctor may just find that falling in love with the outspoken Abigail is the best prescription to heal his wounded heart.

This sweet, clean Regency is the sequel to The Heiress’s Convenient Husband.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Nicole and Chase have an interesting and fun past. One where they got to know and trust each other pretty good. So Nichole had no problem asking Chase for the help she needed. And Chase was caught off guard at what his friend ask of him.

Chase and Nicole are wonderful characters. I love the way their lives intertwine and I really loved following their journey of their fake marriage. Did this really help each of them at where their careers are at now? And they are both wonderful together but they are also both strong individual people, which brought several smiles as I read their daily lives. And Sweet Wesley, can I say he is just adorable and his personality adds much to the story. Each character develops well throughout the story, and this is enough info on them. There is a lot going on in this story, twists and turns weaved throughout that make the story well worth your read.

I have read a number of Cari Lynn Webb’s books and have enjoyed them all, and this one is no different. I love reading the sweet Heartwarming romances from Harlequin, because this is their clean reads line of books, for the most part.

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

Christmas in Bayberry by Jennifer Faye

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Christmas in Bayberry: A Small-Town Christmas Romance from Hallmark Publishing By Jennifer Faye Contemporary Romance Paperback & ebook, 238 Pages July 7th 2020 by Hallmark Publishing

She’s trying to save the family candle company. He’s trying not to fall for Bayberry—and her—again.

Kate Taylor knows what she wants in life: to one day run her family’s candle business, which is at the heart of the close-knit community of Bayberry, Vermont. But the company isn’t doing well.

Wesley Adams is on the fast track to be an assistant vice president at his financial firm in Manhattan. Before the promotion is announced, he’s sent to this small town from his past to do an analysis of the candle company.

He doesn’t expect to bump into his childhood crush, Kate, and when he does, sparks fly. As he spends time in Bayberry, he falls for the town’s Christmas traditions—and for her. But he has a responsibility to submit an honest report. Will it extinguish Kate’s dreams…along with any chance they have for a future together?

This heart-warming romance contains a free Hallmark original recipe for Cast Iron Beef Stew.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

This is my favorite book that I have read by Jennifer Faye. It is a Hallmark Christmas Story, so if you are a fan of Hallmark movies, you will love this one!

Raised my her aunt, Kate Taylor wants nothing more than to take over the candle business that has been in her family for decades. But her aunt is not ready to hand over the reins, and besides, Bayberry Candles is in trouble. And business consultant Wesley Adams is sent to the candle company to help, hoping this assignment will finally land him Assistant Vice President of the NY firm where he works.

Imagine Wes’s surprise when he ends up in the favorite place he has ever lived, working with his high school crush! But does she remember him? It doesn’t matter because he isn’t in Bayberry for long. But this little town has a way of pulling you in. As in all Hallmark movies, which I hope this book will be one day, a lot of the story is predictable, but there are a lot of setbacks, twists and turns that will keep you reading because you have to find out what happens, and how it happens. This story had no trouble keeping my attention, and when I finished the last page, I love the ending, and it has me hoping for more from this small town in Vermont.

If you love sweet, cozy, snowy, small town Christmas stories, Christmas in Bayberry is a must for you! I throughly enjoyed this Christmas in July read, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, whether you read it in July, or closer to Christmas!
