FREE ENGAGED eBook August 18 & 19

Posted by Julie on August 17, 2017 in About Me, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, Writing |

I know towards the end of summer, many people still have travel plans and a need for a good read.

I have on my tablet a load of books I want to read for enjoyment, not for writing or review, so my thought is perhaps that is your case, too.

Let’s add a FREE eBook to your collection, okay?

On Friday, August 18 and Saturday, August 19, ENGAGED will be a free eBook on Amazon. Make sure to double check as glitches sometimes happen, but after 3am Eastern on the 18th, you should be good to go.

About ENGAGED:

Trish Maxwell’s back in Speculator Falls with egg on her face and a lot of apologies to make. She left the mountain town for her dream job in New York City, only to come back unemployed. With no prospects, she works at her family’s department store and makes amends as she finds a new passion creating window displays for Adirondack businesses. She works hard and tries to convince the people of Speculator Falls she’s changed for the better.
As Trish pitches in with community events, she meets paramedic Wayne Peterson, the one man who doesn’t seem to judge her. She even makes friends with Jenna Regan, who helps Trish when people demand to know what’s next in Trish’s life. Living in New York City has been her goal, but the more she’s around Wayne and the Adirondack area, the more she’s drawn to revising her plans. Just when Trish thinks the plan for her life’s coming together, a second chance comes her way that could give her every career goal she’s ever wanted, but threaten to tear her and Wayne apart. Can Trish surrender fears about her future and discover God’s plan for her?

 

Although this is book 3 in a series, I believe you can read it as a standalone without confusion. However, if you would like to start from the beginning, ENTRUSTED is a free eRead at juliearduini.com, and ENTANGLED is available at a low cost. All books are available for print, AND I created a devotional ebook using the characters from this series as well as my surrender stories to help you in your surrender journey.

You can locate FINDING FREEDOM THROUGH SURRENDER here.

Feel free to spread the word to other readers. If you enjoy my books, reviews on Amazon and Goodreads are the best way. The more reviews a book has, the more Amazon makes it visible. Thank you for considering Julie Arduini books for your summer!

Don’t Miss This: The Mercie Collection Spotlight by Sharon Srock

Posted by Julie on May 25, 2016 in encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender |

Yesterday I alerted you to Sharon Srock and her Women of Valley View series. Today I wanted to showcase another series: The Mercie Collection Spotlight.

Now Available!

The Mercie Collection is three novellas in one: 

For Mercie’s Sake 

A victim of rape, sixteen year old Scottlyn Rich is disowned by her family when she refuses to abort the child she carries. Determined to raise her baby, she has no idea how to handle the obstacles ahead. Widowed school teacher Diana Kensington lost everything she held dear the day her husband’s plane fell out of the sky. Can trust be built between these two lost women? Can they work together to fill the void in each other’s lives, for Mercie’ s sake? 

Begging for Mercie 

College student Scottlyn Rich has overcome tragedy—and moved on. She’s about to celebrate her daughter’s first birthday when she receives news that the young man who raped her has died in prison. Grieving mother Penny Nelson believes there is only one way to assuage her grief—take the baby and raise her. Scottlyn didn’t draw the battle lines, but she’s determined to defend what’s hers. Can God find a way to bring peace to both women, or will someone end up begging for Mercie? 

All About Mercie 

Scottlyn Rich is sixty-seven days from her wedding to Grant Weber, but she feels more orphaned and adrift than ever. Until her mother walks through the door. Grant Weber has spent two years earning Scottlyn’s trust and can’t believe how easily she’s willing to accept her mom’s excuses. There’s something off about Jocelyn Rich and he’s determined to find answers even if it costs him everything. Will Scottlyn allow deception to derail her future, or will she take hold of wisdom and realize that her life truly is all about Mercie?

Book Review: Texas K-9 Unit Series by Shirlee McCoy, Margaret Daley and Sharon Dunn

Posted by Julie on March 13, 2015 in Book Review, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender |

Book Description

81+NV9tXc-L._SL1500_Love Inspired Suspense authors Shirlee McCoy, Margaret Daley and Sharon Dunn will get your pulse racing with tales of Texas cops and their loyal K-9 dogs tracking down a crime ring. Enjoy three action-packed Texas K-9 Unit romantic suspense novels in one box set!

When a boy goes missing from his bedroom, a police detective must assure a desperate single mother that he and his trusty bloodhound will find her son.

A woman with amnesia has to rely on an officer and his border collie to stay alive when she can’t remember who tried to kill her.

An FBI agent is called in to protect a single mother when the rookie K-9 officer witnesses a murder and becomes the killer’s target.

This box set includes:
TRACKING JUSTICE BY SHIRLEE MCCOY
DETECTION MISSION BY MARGARET DALEY
GUARD DUTY BY SHARON DUNN

Look for more Texas K-9 Unit books sold separately:
EXPLOSIVE SECRETS BY VALERIE HANSEN
SCENT OF DANGER BY TERRI REED
LONESTAR PROTECTOR BY LENORA WORTH
TEXAS K-9 UNIT CHRISTMAS BY SHIRLEE MCCOY AND TERRI REED

I’m a huge fan of romantic suspense and as soon as I saw two of my favorite authors in this genre were part of the series, I knew I wanted in. I’m not as familiar with Sharon Dunn’s work but this is a perfect series for those that enjoy high stakes, romance, law enforcement and of course, K-9 dogs.

Each book has a great cover and an action packed story featuring the K-9 dogs. I found them to be quick reads with the right amount of romance against all the peril. Shirlee McCoy is my go-to for this genre and Tracking Justice was as enjoyable as I thought it would be. Margaret Daley is a talent no matter what genre she writes for so I had fun with Detection Mission, too. Guard Duty is a perfect fit for the series and gave me an author in Sharon Dunn to look for more from.

I received the Texas K-9 Unit series in exchange for an honest review.

Book Review: Hidden Falls Episode #1—Ordinary Secrets

Posted by Julie on January 13, 2014 in Book Review, encouragement, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons |

Hidden Falls – An Exciting New 13-Part Serial Novel from Shiloh Run Studios

Thirty years of small-town secrets—now the key to the mystery is gone.  The small town of Hidden Falls is abuzz. Former students, friends, and loved ones are prepping for tonight’s big event to honor Ted Quinn’s many years of compassionate service.  Quinn is reluctant about a night in the spotlight–but is tenderly prodded by Sylvia, mayor of Hidden Falls and Quinn’s dearest friend and confidante.51zJ37vEwsL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-65,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Ethan and Nicole won’t let the shadows of their pasts stop them from returning to Hidden Falls–but only for Quinn–no matter how much it hurts.  Liam, a former student, and Jack, a town newcomer, are both hoping the night works toward their own gain–or, if they’ll admit it, their chance for redemption.  Like Quinn, Dani and Lauren are mainstays in Hidden Falls. They keep close to home–and have secrets to keep close, too.

Now it’s time. The guests are seated, introductions are made, the spotlight shines on center stage…and the unthinkable leaves the entire town scrambling for the truth.

A new must-read episode releases every week starting January 24!

Ordinary Secrets is the first installment in a 13 part weekly series by Olivia Newport. It’s a short read that introduces you to the characters and sets up the conflict for future episodes. It’s a short read and there were quite a few characters to sort out, but I knew that was to set everything up. Given the new chapters come out weekly, I don’t see it being a problem for readers to remember.

I know people might be discouraged by it being a series, but if readers think of it as the reading version of NetFlix or Hulu, it makes sense, and the quality is there. This is a place filled with people I’d like to get to know better.

Ordinary Secrets is free as of this writing, so I encourage you to give the people of Hidden Falls a chance.

Find Ordinary Secrets here, FREE, as of this writing.

I downloaded a copy from Amazon per an invitation from Handlebar.
