Posted by Julie on April 6, 2015 in About Me, Guest blogger, Julie Arduini |
What a wonderful debut! It’s a story of redemption and forgiveness and
love. The author, Jessica R Patch, sucked me in on the first page. I
couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait for her next book to be released.
Wonderful writer. Highly recommended read, especially around Christmas
time, but could be read anytime. It’s that good.~fan review

About the book:

A rowdy bar owner. A widowed pastor’s wife. And Christmas hope that brings
them together.

After widower Eden Snow’s church almost burns to the ground, she’s
compelled to find a temporary place to hold services and Christmas cantata

Has-been hockey player, Knox Everhart, has a reputation for being fast on
the ice and with women. Except Eden. She’s always been a fascinating
mystery to him, which is why he agrees to let her use the back room of his
bar—with one rule: No converting his customers.

But when Eden brings the church to the bar, it offers something the bottle
can’t. Hope. And he finds himself falling in love with a woman and a Savior
he feels unworthy to pursue.

About the free novella, Just the Way You Are:

When Pastor Gabe asks Audrey Gilbraith to use her mad florist skills
to help him design a prayer garden, she’s all in, especially since it helps
take her mind off the fact she’s about to lose her job and her apartment.
But working closely with Gabe and not falling for him is complicated. She’s
not pastor’s wife material, and she has the past to prove it.

Gabriel Brookson wants out of Audrey’s friend-zone, but when he pursues
her romantically, he ruffles more than a few feathers in his congregation.
How much is he willing to give up for this wonderful, quirky woman, and
will Audrey accept him if he risks it all?
