- Leaves changing color.
- Pumpkin flavored everything.
- Book Clubs starting new reads.
That’s a great sounding fall, isn’t it?
I can help you connect with a great book club because one starts Thursday. The best news? You don’t need to leave home nor worry about others coming to you. Wear your sweats, visit when you can. Most of all, enjoy a fun romance that introduces you to a great set of characters who are working through surrendering fear, loss, change, and wanting to belong.
How do I know so much about this book club? It’s the Books for Life group page on Goodreads featuring authors from Write Integrity Press and Pix-N-Pens as well as other authors and readers all over cyberspace. The book club is one aspect of the group. We have discussions covering many reading related topics. Genres, favorite heroes, and more.
The Books for Life book club kicks off with Entrusted, my Adirondack romance. Each Thursday I’ll post discussion questions that you can answer any time. I’ll be checking in often to answer and hope you do, too. Then, meet me on the page each Thursday at 8pm EST and we’ll talk about the chapters and I’ll share behind-the-scenes information. I’m really looking forward to it. Even if you haven’t read the chapters, please visit the page. I think we’ll have a good time.
Purchase links and the reading schedule are posted. Go on over, introduce yourself, and I’ll see you Thursday!
Jenna Anderson, sassy city-girl, plows—literally—into Speculator Falls with a busted GPS, arriving in town as the new senior center director. She has only one goal—that of belonging no matter how out of place she appears and how angry she makes town councilman and grocer Ben Regan.
Her new life is so rural there are no traffic lights, and when she learns her car isn’t equipped to handle the mountain terrain, Ben’s grandmother offers her late husband’s vehicle, further alienating the local businessman.
As she endears herself to the seniors at the center and creates a vision full of ideas, programs, and equipment, she ruffles Ben’s plans to keep Speculator Falls void of change, including the store his grandfather built.
The two work through community events and shared heartbreak only to face off in a town council meeting where Ben publically rejects her proposal for the senior center, causing Jenna to react out of her fears about belonging.
She returns to Ohio where she realizes she needs to surrender her plans for the center and fears about belonging and trust her Heavenly Father when facing fear, change, loss, and love.

The wait is over! Readers voted, the winning hero got their happy ending and now
No longer needed as her father’s nurse, Mercy Lacewell attempts to step into his shoes at his acquisitions firm. That means travel, engaging strangers, and making final decisions—nothing she feels equipped to do. If her best friend has her way, Mercy will simply marry one of the single, available men she meets, but they overwhelm her. So handsome and kind. And so many. Even if she felt obliged, how could she ever choose?
Should she shove all attraction aside and focus on her father’s business, or is God warming her heart with the possibility of forever?
This is Book Three in the Heart Seekers series. Book One was A Dozen Apologies and Book Two was The Love Boat Bachelor. Unlikely Merger can stand alone but don’t you want to find out how all the stories tie together? It is quite the fun ride.
I wrote Landon Gates, Chapter 3, from Watkins Glen in Unlikely Merger. My heart was to honor the area I grew up in and create a character that represents the people. I named him after my nephew, and named his sister, Kaili, as the name we would have chosen had our son been a daughter. 🙂
All the heroes are swoon worthy and we heard at one point one vote separated five characters. Well, the votes are in but we can’t tell you who won Mercy’s heart.
Why not read on and find out? And once you’re done, if you enjoyed it, leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads? Thank you!
