Monday Morning Coffee and Chat 11/4/19 – Book Releases and Thanksgiving, oh my!

Hello! Welcome to Monday morning coffee and chat!

Monday Morning Coffee and Chat! Today I’m talking about releasing VALERIE’S VERDICT, my BLIZZARD IN THE BLUEGRASS being part of the WHEN SNOWFLAKES NEVER CEASE collection and how writing a child with autism was very emotional for me, and about doing a series of whole food/real food cooking videos the week before Thanksgiving.

Blizzard in the Bluegrass!

I am thrilled to be a part of the latest Crossroads Collections book. Each collection has a shared theme or event and the final book ties them all together. The theme for the When Snowflakes Never Cease collection is a record-breaking snowstorm that hits the United States at Christmastime.

My book, Blizzard in the Bluegrass, is the story of Gloria Sutton, a divorced mom of an 8-year-old boy with autism, and widower Jeff Brock, Charula, Kentucky’s newest family practice doctor. When the storm of the century blankets Kentucky under several feet of snow and whiteout conditions on Christmas day, Gloria and Jeff batten down at her father’s house, counting their blessings and basking in the warmth of their love. Until they discover that eight-year-old Noah is missing. Will they find him before he succumbs to the elements, or will this day forever mark a tragedy in their lives?

That’s the first book in the collection. Then we also have these amazing books:

Buried Secrets by Alana Terry
Cosette travels to a remote Alaskan wilderness to finally meet the love of her life, only to discover the man she fell in love with may be a murderer. Is she his next target?

Wrong About Mr. Wright by Chautona Havig
Ronni is convinced that her early retirement plan just got buried under the snowdrifts of Juniper Springs. Stranded, she teams up with local resident, Hank, and helps “make Christmas” for the rest of her fellow passengers. Now, if he’d just stop messing with her idea of the perfect man.

More Than Enough by Jaycee Weaver
For single mom Ada, there’s never enough: time, money, patience, joy. She’s not enough, though compassionate Kent disagrees. When a freak snowstorm traps the couple and her three kids in a theater on Christmas, she’ll either discover her worth in Christ or crumble under the pressure.

When Snowflakes Never Cease by Amanda Tru
When her young patient needs the best care to save her life, Dr. Geneva Hutchins turns to top cancer specialist and the man who broke her heart, Dr. Carter Solomon. Together, they embark on a journey to save Allie and grant her wish to see her daddy by Christmas.

The Second Yes is Now Available!

First they said yes to their guys, but now it’s time for the second yes–the dress!

Five of today’s Best-selling Christian Authors weave five unique, connected stories where wedding dresses come with unique adventures and touching “I do’s.”

Season of Surprises by Alexa Verde:
The maid-of-honor and best-man embark on a journey to recover an heirloom wedding dress that was mistakenly sold. Along the way, the former high school sweethearts unexpectedly encounter danger, surprises, and a second chance at love.

Something Borrowed, Someone Blue by Chautona Havig:
A borrowed dress, half-completed marriage counseling, and a last-minute theft lead up to the big day. Face it. Weddings equal stress for the families involved. Preachers, however, have it easy. Or so everyone thinks.

Black Belt, White Dress by Hallee Bridgeman:
Deputy Sheriff and full time tomboy Traci Winston agrees to marry Taekwondo Master Travis Seaver, provided they exchange vows at 2000 feet while skydiving over the Grand Canyon. However, Traci’s mother has more conventional plans, and she finds herself trying on dresses and planning an elaborate ceremony in their hometown church complete with butterflies and cummerbunds. Can Traci manage to smile while walking down the aisle? Or will she collapse under the weight of girly ribbons and bows?

Sewn Together by Alana Terry:
A family torn apart. A pregnancy that’s expected to end in heartache instead of joy. Despite hardship and trial, hope abounds in this heartwarming and inspirational novella full of love, faith, and miracles.

The Second Yes by Amanda Tru:
For top fashion designer London Hutchins, life so far sums up in her closet full of wedding dresses—one for each guy she’s ever dated. Moving back home to Crossroads seems so right, especially when she finds her high school sweetheart waiting there. London soon discovers that local bridal shop owner, Rhonda Snow, isn’t as nice as everyone says. A little harmless meddling to help a few of Rhonda’s clients couldn’t possibly hurt anything, right?

THE BLURB:

Six clean-read New Adult contemporary romance novels by Amazon best-selling Christian authors (including USA Today best-selling author, Staci Stallings) in one collection. Prepare to go on a journey to the crossroads, where pasts fall away and new lives begin. There will be romance, suspense, and real issues facing women today. Novels include …

ONE NIGHT WITH A ROCK STAR, by Chana Keefer
It’s Anne of Green Gables Meets Rattle & Hum. Worlds collide.
When Esther was a young teen with frizzy hair and too-skinny legs, Sky’s music soothed her through awkwardness and pain. During the Glam-Rock 80s, Esther is a College Journalism student and fledgling Print Model. One chance meeting with her Superstar crush rocks both their worlds.
Will Esther’s deep roots in Family and Faith keep her feet on the ground when a tornado named Sky blows her world apart?

christmas star sapphire smallCHRISTMAS STAR SAPPHIRE, by Hallee Bridgeman
Madeline Viscolli meets Joe Westcott during a campus ministry meeting as she begins graduate school in Alabama. Joe’s personal rule of not dating students starts to fade until he discovers Madeline’s destiny lay in running her father’s massive corporation. After rejecting wealth and all its trappings, Joe struggles against the attraction he feels for Madeline. Madeline knows she loves Joe but is not willing to throw away her destiny of taking over the helm of Viscolli Enterprises. A Christmas Eve funeral washes all Joe’s plans away. Will their love succumb to the rising tide caused by their differences in lifestyles, or will raging seas calm and allow them to sail off into the sunset?”

ONE AMONG MEN, by Connie Almony
Samantha Hart’s job requires she live with 500 hard-partying college guys. She can handle the 499, but it only takes one to lead her to danger.
Though Samantha wants to find godly purpose in her life, she is forced to take a position as a resident director of an all-male party dorm at Maryland State University, essentially babysitting pampered party boys rather than changing lives. What she doesn’t expect is to fall for the engaging undergrad who seems to be helping her on the sly. That is when he isn’t hanging out with the resident drug dealer.

PRINCESS, by Staci Stallings (USA Today Best-selling author)
When Heather Nolan learns she will no longer be able to pursue her college degree unless she finds a job, she is so desperate for funds, she takes a job tutoring the college’s all-star basketball player, Anthony Russell. She hates him. He hates English. But all is not as it seems as both of them will soon come to understand…

HARD TO FIND, by Traci Tyne Hilton
Isaac Daniels screwed up his romance with Jane Adler, and then a few more. Starting over at a Bible School in Sweden probably wasn’t the best idea. Especially when he manages to lose the pretty girl with the big green eyes, her crazy sister, and his boss’s diabetic nephew.
If he can find the missing students, he can probably keep his job, but the real risk in this hunt is losing his heart.

SHATTERED ROSE, by Tammy L. Gray
Avery Nichols knows how to wear the mask. Perfect student, perfect daughter and perfect friend. Nobody would ever guess that inside Avery is a prisoner to her own self-loathing. Then she meets him…and everything changes. Handsome, charming and self-assured, Jake Matthew sweeps Avery off her feet in an effortless fashion. Avery knows that Jake is everything she needs and all she has ever wanted. She would destroy herself to be loved by him…until he walks away. Broken and lost, Avery meets Parker. His genuine, caring nature reaches past the mask and the shattered pieces of her heart slowly begin to heal. But just when Avery starts to feel whole again, she faces the impossible truth. Jake never really left.
