Earlier this month I rolled out a new feature called “Don’t Miss This.” I love reading as much as writing, and I love promoting books. With that, each month I’m going to feature a book I don’t want you to miss.
This month is Catch of a Lifetime by Candee Fick. Reviews have been popping up around cyberspace and if you’re on the fence, or sideline, if you want to talk football, perhaps these links will help you decide to purchase.

Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to debut author Dawn Crandall and her new release The Hesitant Heiress. The first thing I’d like to point out is the absolutely gorgeous cover! I adore the soft pink gown, and the mysterious manor in the background.
The Everstone Chronicles from Whitaker House:
Dawn Crandall writes long inspirational historical romantic suspense. She has a BA in Christian Education from Taylor University and lives in northeast Indiana with her ever-supportive husband, her three cats [Lilly, Pumpkin and Clover] and their newest addition, a little baby boy named Rhett (March 2014).
A former bookseller at Barnes & Noble, Dawn didn’t begin writing until her husband found out about her long-buried dream of writing a book. Without a doubt about someday becoming traditionally published, he encouraged her to quit her job in 2010 in order to focus on writing The Hesitant Heiress. It didn’t take her long to realize that writing books was what she was made to do. Dawn is represented by Joyce Hart of Hartline Literary.
Dawn is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers, secretary for the Indiana ACFW Chapter (Hoosier Ink), and associate member of the Great Lakes ACFW Chapter.

While she’s stalking the truth . . . someone is stalking her.
Psychology professor and criminal profiler Taylor Martin prides herself on being able to solve any crime, except the one she wants most desperately to solve–the disappearance of her father twenty years ago. When she finally has a lead on his whereabouts, Taylor returns home to Logan Point, Mississippi, to investigate. But as she works to uncover the truth, someone else will do almost anything to keep her from it.
Nick Sinclair pens mystery novels for a living, but the biggest mystery to him is how he can ever get over the death of his wife–a tragedy he believes he could have prevented. Now that his estranged brother is the only family he has left, Nick sets out to find him. But when he crosses paths with Taylor, all he seems to find is trouble.
Join the chase as Taylor and Nick search the murky shadows of the past for the keys to unlocking the present–and moving into a future they never imagined.
Shadows of the Past is a debut novel by Patricia Bradley but doesn’t read like one. This is a solid story with old wounds, mystery, conflict, and chemistry. Taylor’s determined to find out about her Dad’s disappearance and she’s got her eye on Nick’s family. Nick knows mysteries but he’s confused by grief and family loyalties. Mix this together and it’s a powder keg of emotions, complicated by someone not wanting Taylor to find the truth.
I really enjoyed this. Like I said, it’s solid with multi layered characters and constant conflict, especially around the hero and heroine. My only surprise was that this was a debut novel. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more from Patricia Bradley, and that’s a very good thing.
