MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR Liz Johnson…

Liz Johnson is the author of more than a dozen novels, including A Sparkle of Silver, A Glitter of Gold, The Red Door Inn, Where Two Hearts Meet, and On Love’s Gentle Shore, as well as a New York Times bestselling novella and a handful of short stories. She works in marketing and makes her home in Phoenix, Arizona.

Her latest book is entitled, A Dazzle of Diamonds

Description:
Penelope Hunter loves her job as the events manager at one of Savannah’s premier historic venues–until her ex-fiancé walks into her office with his new bride-to-be. To make matters worse, a scheming social matriarch is intent on seeing Penelope fired, especially if she insists on being seen with Tucker Westbrook.

Since returning from serving two tours in the Middle East, Tucker has built a thriving security company. His work is nearly as stabilizing as his friendship with Penelope, who has been by his side since childhood. But when the lone candidate for county sheriff goads him, Tucker loses his cool and ends up on the ballot–and on the receiving end of a smear campaign claiming the Westbrooks were traitors to the South.

To clear his name, Tucker and Penelope must join forces to find the truth behind a 150-year-old lost treasure. But the more time they spend together, the closer she comes to losing her job–and falling helplessly in love.

But Zane is not at Daughtry House for a vacation. He’s tracking a killer and collecting two key witnesses to a federal judge’s murder.

When the reporter who blew his cover on an important investigation inserts herself back into his life, he’s less than thrilled.

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.

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.

JANINE MICK WILLS RETURNS TO TALK ABOUT JUANITA AND THE OUTLAW: BOOK 2 OF HER TEXAS TREASURES SERIES!

MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR JANINE MICK WILLS…

As far back as she can remember, Janine Mick Wills, a native of Columbus, Ohio, has loved the Lord and the written word. A former pastor’s wife, she now resides in South Carolina with her retired Air Force husband, where she heads the ladies’ ministry at her church and fills every spare minute writing for the glory of God. Janine considers a Child of the King to be her most important title, but she also enjoys being called a wife, a mom, and a mamaw to seven grandchildren.

Her featured book is entitled: Juanita and the Outlaw: Texas treasures, Book 2

Book description:

Juanita López loves God and her family and only wants to make them happy.
Sent to Boston to become a lady and find a suitable husband, Juanita López quickly tires of parties, fancy ball gowns, and dandies vying for her attention. When racial prejudice attacks from an unexpected source, she longs to return to Texas and her beloved home, the Triple P Ranch.

Pete Murphy is hiding from everyone, including God.
Pete, a cowboy with a facial scar and a wounded spirit, arrives at the Triple P, wanting nothing more than a fresh start. He accompanies his boss to Boston, where he meets the lovely Juanita López. At first, he can’t believe that she could find him anything but hideous, but eventually he accepts she can see beyond his physical scar and past sins.

But Pete’s former life catches up with him, putting Juanita in harm’s way and threatening to destroy their budding relationship. Can Pete save Juanita before it’s too late, and will their love survive this obstacle of their faith?

Excerpt:
“Do you think we could start over?” She held out her hand. “My name is Carmen Juanita López, but I am called Juanita. I am most delighted to meet you.”
Pete enveloped her hand in his large one. Juanita could feel the warmth of it through her glove.
“My name’s Peter Daniel Murphy, and it is I who am honored to meet you.”
“Peter? May I ask why you go by the name of Pete?”
His back straightened, as though her question had upset him. She was quick with her apology. “I am sorry. I can see that is a personal question. I will call you Pete if you like.”
“Juanita, where are you?” Reginald’s voice carried over the distance to where Pete and Juanita stood. “Are you out here?”
Juanita ducked into the grape arbor. “Oh, no. It is Reginald.”
“I thought you were to marry Mr. Davenport.”
“That was—” Juanita was about to say, until I met you, but caught the words before they escaped her lips. Pete Murphy probably thought her brazen enough already.
“You don’t want his company?” Pete asked.
“No. I do not.”
He grabbed her hand. “Then come with me.” He pulled her farther into the night and in the direction of the stables.
