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.

Back Cover Copy--Something to Squeal About

What an emotional weekend! Back to school here at home, but we also moved our oldest into her dorm to start her freshman year at college.

I'm proud of her, but miss her. Last night was our first family dinner with that empty spot at the table. I held it together, but I would be lying if I didn't say I was sad.

Parenting is a lifelong grieving process, according to one person I spoke to. I think he's got a point. Letting our kids go as they grow is a series of goodbyes (to different stages) and much as it is hellos (to new ones). I'm celebrating my kids' growth and achievements, but I think it's ok to be a little sad at a time like this, too.

So it was a nice treat to look up the link for my upcoming Love Inspired Historical, The Reluctant Guardian, and see that the back-cover copy has been written. WOW! The team did an amazing job capturing the story:

Under the Spy's Protection 

When Gemma Lyfield inadvertently interrupts a dangerous smuggling operation in her English village, she's rescued by a mysterious Scottish spy. Now with criminals after her and her hopes for an expected marriage proposal recently dashed, she will make her society debut in London. But not without the man tasked with protecting her…

Covert government agent Tavin Knox must keep Gemma safe from the criminals who think she can identify them—a mission he never wanted. But as he escorts her and her rascally nephews around London, the lovely English lass proves braver than he ever imagined. Suddenly, the spy who works alone has one Season to become the family man he never dreamed he'd be.

No cover to share yet, but when I have it I will pop it up here! I can't wait!

The Reluctant Guardian releases Feb 2017!
