I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

Diamond in the Rough Giveaway!

This week on the Inkwell, we're celebrating the release of Diamond in the Rough, first in the Charm & Deceit series, co-authored by Jennifer AlLee and Lisa Karon Richardson.

I'm hosting the party today--which means it's a bit goofy. Somehow, Hugh Jackman is involved in a 3-legged race and-- well, just visit and see what's up.

As for the book we're celebrating, well, I love this book. It's funny but also has some pointed comments about hate and redemption. Run over to the Inkwell and enter to win the copy! (Or to Amazon to pick it up!)

Here's more info:

Grant Diamond is a professional gambler on the run from his past. When he comes across a wagon wreck, the chance to escape his pursuers is too good a gamble to pass up, and he assumes the identity of the dead wagon driver. His plan takes an unexpected turn when local heiress Lily Rose mistakes him for the missionary she had asked to come work with the Wiyot Indians. Seeing Eureka as a promising place to lay low, Grant plays along. Before he knows it, he's bluffing his way through sermons and building an Indian school. But with a Pinkerton on his trail and a rancher rousing fresh hatred against the Indians, Grant fears the new life he's built may soon crumple like a house of cards.
