Always on My Mind

AlwaysOnMyMind_3D

After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby.
Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts—and the future of the resort.
Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?

Paper Hearts 

PaperHearts_3D

Abigail Pressman would never have guessed that love notes penned on paper hearts by an anonymous couple could restore her belief in love. As a business owner in a quaint town at the base of the Rockies, she’s poured everything into dreams of expansion . . . and resisting the matchmaking efforts of the Valentine Volunteers, who gather in her store to continue Loves Park’s tradition of stamping mail with the city’s romantic postmark.
When Abigail is unwillingly drafted into the Volunteers, she encounters the paper hearts, a distraction that couldn’t come at a worse time. A hard-to-read doctor has become Abigail’s new landlord, and he’s threatening to end her lease to expand his practice.
As she fights a growing attraction to this handsome man crushing her dreams, Abigail is inspired to string the hearts in her store, sparking a citywide infatuation with the artsy trend. But when a new batch of hearts reaches the Volunteers, it appears something tragic has happened to the couple. Will uncovering their story confirm Abigail’s doubts about love, or could it rescue her dreams . . . and her heart?

What’s Happening Wednesday? Cover Reveal: The Sea Keeper’s Daughters by Lisa Wingate

Today on the blog, in celebration of What’s Happening Wednesday?, we’re very excited to reveal the cover of The Sea Keeper’s Daughters. The latest time-slip novel from Lisa Wingate, The Sea Keeper’s Daughters is about those precious moments in time that are nearly forgotten.

About the book:

From modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt’s folklore writers of the WPA Federal Writers’ Project, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny . . .

Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina’s Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs.
But things at The Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney’s estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney’s only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a Depression-era love story change everything?

 

Fun news:

If you would like to meet Lisa, don’t miss out on her book tour this September.

While some tour events are already on the schedule, she’ll also have time for speaking at luncheons, teas, book chats, and more. Because she will be traveling in the areas listed below, your church, charity, or organization can hold an event without the cost of travel fees. Here’s the preliminary tour agenda:

North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Northern Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Virginia

To find out more, go to her website.

 

Insider thoughts from Lisa Wingate:

Like many of my novels, The Sea Keeper’s Daughters began with a bit of nearly forgotten history. Until I stumbled across an Eleanor Roosevelt quote, I wasn’t aware of the Depression-era Federal Writers’ Project. In researching the program, I quickly became fascinated with the lives of the WPA’s federal writers themselves. Thousands of people participated in the project, from housewives and secretaries (like Alice in the story) to famous writers of the day. My fascination led to The Sea Keeper’s Daughters.
