ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Words from the author:

Hi, I’m Amber, but my friends call me Tiff, short for Tiffany, my first name. I am in my mid-30’s, married to the love of my life since July 2007, have a daughter and a son, and live in Colorado. Here, I am content to do what I love—write, speak, and offer virtual assistance.

Thanks to the gentle nudging of a fellow author — Tracie Peterson — in 2002, I joined the American Christian Fiction Writers and wouldn’t be published today without them. For those of you who are also fiction writers looking for a wonderful support group, check them out! My very first book, Promises, Promises, sold in December 2006 and released in February 2008. I’ve been going steady ever since.

ABOUT THE BOOK

When Alyssa Denham, a single career woman, wins a fun getaway for two on Mackinac Island where her grandmother lives, she gives her carefree best friend a call. Together, they tour the old shops and hidden treasures of the quaint island while helping Alyssa’s grandmother piece together an heirloom quilt. Their quest gains them entrance into the homes of many longtime residents of the island, parts of the city that are otherwise off limits to tourists.
As the quilt’s story takes shape, Alyssa gains amazing insight into her grandmother’s life . . . and attracts the attention of the handsome Scott Whitman, an island resident in charge of hotel transportation. Will memories of her past keep Alyssa from letting go? Or will the quest to piece together the heirloom quilt restore Alyssa’s fractured heart—and bring healing to her entire family?

My thoughts:  I’ve spoken of the Quilts of Love book series a lot lately.  I really do love them.  They combine a love of quilting or maybe merely a quilt into each book and weave a story that makes it central.  In this particular one we follow Alyssa as she heads on a free cruise that comes with extra baggage.  Her past must be faced as the destination of the cruise is an island her family has lived on for years but that she hasn’t seen in at least 15.  There are memories that haunt her and then her past shows up in her present.  Can the handsome Scott help her work through her troubles and convince her she does have a future?

About the book:   A Grand Design
 
A getaway on a charming island may be just what Alyssa needs—if only she can let go of her past.

My thoughts:  I loved this book just as I have loved all of the previous Quilts of Love series.  I fell in love with Alyssa and her grandmother(schemer that she is) and really enjoyed watched her come to love her island again.  The growing attraction between her and Scott can only be allowed after she comes to terms with the past that haunts her.  The past that suddenly has arrived again in her present.  Can Scott banish the past and find love with Alyssa?  Guess you’ll just have to read and see.  Trust me when I say you won’t want to put the book down!  I can’t recommend A Grand Design enough.

This week, the

is introducing
Rival Hearts
Abingdon Press (June 17, 2014)
by
Tara Randel
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Tara Randel has enjoyed a lifelong love of books, especially romance and mystery genres, so it didn’t come as a surprise when she began writing with the dream of becoming published. After finding Romantic Times magazine in a bookstore many years ago, she found information about writing organizations. Soon after, she joined Romance Writers of America. She located the local RWA chapter and immediately attended her first meeting. There was no stopping her after that!

Through Tampa Area Romance Authors, Tara learned all about the business of publishing, starting with the craft of writing to behind the scenes of publishing. She served as contest coordinator for four years and served as President for one year, enjoying the organization and the lasting friendships made there.

When not writing, Tara owns a business with her husband and stays busy with her two daughters. She lives on the West Coast of Florida, where gorgeous sunsets inspire the creation of heartwarming stories, filled with love, laughter and the occasional mystery. Enjoy!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Molly Henderson and Ben Weaver have been rival magazine writers for the same publishing group for years. When both come up for the same promotion, they find themselves in an unexpected competition to win the spot. Molly, editor of Quilter’s Heart, and Ben, editor of Outdoor Adventures, must switch roles, each working for the other for one month, then submit an article at the end of their quests.

Can girly-girl Molly survive the outdoor adventures that Ben has planned? Can Ben navigate the perils of the social dynamics of quilting events without destroying a valuable quilt in one short month? More importantly, in this he-said, she-said situation, will Molly and Ben give in to their attraction and fall in love, no matter who wins?

If you would like to read the first chapter of Rival Hearts, go HERE.

My thoughts:  It is with sadness that I say I have not received this new book in the Quilts of Love series as of yet. It is supposed to be on the way to me.  I enjoy the series and can’t wait to check this one out!
