MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR Bethany Turner…

Bethany Turner is the award-winning author of The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck and Wooing Cadie McCaffrey and the director of administration for Rock Springs Church in Southwest Colorado. A former bank executive and a three-time cancer survivor (all before she turned 35), Bethany knows that when God has plans for your life, it doesn’t matter what anyone else has to say. Because of that, she’s chosen to follow his call to write. She lives with her husband and their two sons in Colorado, where she writes for a new generation of readers who crave fiction that tackles the thorny issues of life with humor and insight.

Bethany’s featured book is entitled, Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish

Description:x
Get ready for a heaping helping of humor, romance, and second chances

Celebrity chef Maxwell Cavanagh is known for many things: his multiple Michelin stars, his top-rated Culinary Channel show, To the Max, and most of all his horrible temper. Hadley Beckett, host of the Culinary Channel’s other top-rated show, At Home with Hadley, is beloved for her Southern charm and for making her viewers feel like family.

When Max experiences a very public temper tantrum and is sent packing, his only chance to get back on TV and in the public’s good graces is to work alongside Hadley. As these polar-opposite celeb chefs begin to peel away the layers of public persona and reputation, they will not only discover the key ingredients for getting along but also learn the secret recipe for unexpected forgiveness . . . and maybe even love.

In the meantime, hide the knives.

MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR Patricia Bradley …

USA Today Best-selling author, Patricia Bradley is a Carol finalist and winner of an Inspirational Readers’ Choice Award in Suspense. She and her two cats call North Mississippi home–the South is also where she sets most of her books. Her romantic suspense novels include the Logan Point series and the Memphis Cold Case Novels. Standoff, the first book in the Natchez Trace Park Ranger’s series released May 5, 2020, and she’s finished the second book, Obsession and is hard at work on the third, Crosshairs.
When Patricia isn’t writing, she likes to throw mud on a wheel and see what happens.

Patricia’s new book is entitled: STANDOFF, BOOK 1, NATCHEZ TRACE PARK RANGERS

Description:

The Natchez Trace National Parkway stretches 444 miles from Nashville to Natchez, the oldest town on the Mississippi River. It’s the perfect road for a relaxed pleasure drive. Unfortunately for park ranger Luke Fereday, lately it’s being used to move drugs. Sent to Natchez to infiltrate the organization at the center of the drug ring, Luke arrives too late to a stakeout and discovers the body of his friend, park ranger John Danvers.

John’s daughter Brooke is determined to investigate her father’s murder, but things are more complicated than they first appear, and Brooke soon finds herself the target of a killer who will do anything to silence her. Luke will have his hands full keeping her safe. But who’s going to keep him safe when he realizes he’s falling–hard–for the daughter of the man he failed to save?

Award-winning author Patricia Bradley introduces you to a new series set in the sultry South that will have you wiping your brow and looking over your shoulder.

Standoff can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christian Book, or through the author’s book page.

MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR KATHY C. GUERRY…

Kathy C. Guerry’s nursing career spans over three decades in varied specialties, including geriatrics. She is active in women’s ministries as a speaker, teacher, mentor and writer. She has published devotional articles and special interest columns in various magazines and newspapers. Kathy and her husband are enjoying life in South Carolina on their small farm.

Kathy’s book is entitled Grace at the finish line: Recollections from a nursing home caregiver

Description:
In a stage of life that is usually devalued,

these stories from the nursing home remind us that all life is sacred and every moment is a gift. In Grace at the Finish Line, Kathy has found a way to keep the memories of her friends alive by sharing their stories—stories of compassion, struggle, grace, and magic in the mundane.

Excerpts:

From page 42: Ms. Gertie had no tolerance for whining and she enjoyed taunting other residents who continually complained. When she wanted something, she would yell curse words and threats. Luckily for us, the 3 nurses she aimed her fists at happened to be the fastest gals on our unit. In another stroke of good luck, we found and confiscated the knife under her pillow before she tried to use it. Overall her transition went pretty well…we soon found the way to her heart with coffee and sweet snacks. I am not above bribing folks with food when the situation warrants it.

from page 57: Then there was an obstinate elderly man who was known for being oppositional. One day he suffered a fainting episode. Sally, Dell and I rushed to his room to revive him. After a few moments, his eyes fluttered slightly but he would not respond to our questioning. Sally gently shook his arm and shouted, “Mr. Gregg, Mr. Gregg, can you hear me?” Without moving or opening his eyes, Mr. Gregg said clearly, “No!”
