January! Definitely the time of year to curl up with a good book. Awww, you say, any time of the year is a good time for that. I couldn’t agree more! But somehow the long, cold days of this month—the holidays behind us, spring so far away—invite an escape into story land, doesn’t it?
So here’s a free read! I’m running a free promo on my latest title, The Matchmaker’s Match, starting today and running through midnight on Wednesday (January 10th through January 13th, 2016)
Here’s a peek at the story: For 1895, Mara Madison has a far too adventurous past. So when she finally discovers the faith her family always modeled, she sentences herself to perpetual spinsterhood and good works to make up for her old, selfish ways. However when her sister tries playing matchmaker between Mara and her husband’s handsome business partner, Benjamin Esherwood, Mara is determined to stay devoted to God. When she suspects her sister’s governess is already in love with the man, she decides to hone her own matchmaking skills.
If only her heart will cooperate . . .
I had so much fun writing this story, and one of the reasons is that it rattled around in my head for a couple of years before letting it out. Those are always the best, those tales filled with characters who won’t take no for an answer. Mara was inspired by a character I created in 2012, the younger sister of a secondary player from Bees In The Butterfly Garden named Evie. See how this character evolved from one to the other—not exactly a sequel, but the foundation for the story is clearly drawn.
If you didn’t get a chance to read Bees In The Butterfly Garden, it just so happens that my publisher is running a special through the end of this month. Just 99 cents for the ebook!
