You guys are amazing. If you’ve read ENTRUSTED and/or ENTANGLED and enjoyed it, would you be kind enough to leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads?
Thank you. I truly appreciate all your support.
Well, this is a first! This week’s Clash of the Titles Blog Alliance features me and my Adirondack romance, Entrusted. Isn’t that fun? I hope you enjoy the post!
If you enjoy a sweet romance in a quaint village, you’ll love Julie Arduini’s debut novel. She fills the town with delightful and insightful characters. The story has a good balance of humor, wisdom and love. Buy this book, wrap up in a warm blanket with a cup of team, and snuggle in for a great read.
About the book:
Jenna Anderson, sassy city-girl from Youngstown, Ohio, plows–literally–into Adirondack village, Speculator Falls, with a busted GPS. She gets a warning from the sheriff but has ideas for the senior center to prove she belongs in town as their director. Town councilman Ben Regan is as broken as the flower box Jenna demolished. He’s grieving and wants to shut down the center before there’s too much change and heartbreak. They work on community projects and build a slow relationship, but the council needs to vote on the senior center’s future. Can Jenna show Ben both her and the center are worth trusting?

The author shares how Entrusted came about:
My writing includes surrender issues and in Entrusted, Ben and Jenna both struggle. Jenna wants to
belong and Ben’s afraid of loss. They have to surrender those things to their Heavenly Father and trust that He’s taking care of them. Book 2 and 3 also give a clue to the surrender journey with Entangled and Engaged.
The book came about after my first visit to the real village of Speculator in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate NY. As I walked the street and drank in the mountain air, the characters came alive. I’m excited to return to Speculator June 12 as I share my writing experience at the Lake Pleasant library. Then, starting June 25th I’m participating in an Entrusted book club in Youngstown where I plan to share exclusive footage of me visiting the places I used in Entrusted.
I write this with a splint on my writing hand, bronchitis, and a sinus infection. My joke is that I have more drugs than Walgreens or Snoop Dog. I’m not at 100% and if you want to say “Bless her heart, I want to pray for her,” go for it. I’m not afraid to ask for prayer.
But I also have to be realistic and use wisdom. I’m trying to rest up. So this short.
Today I’m over at Christians Read talking about older books that have a grab on me this year.
