I had a wonderful 'surprise' in my in-box Friday. Although I've been waiting with bated breath for the cover of An Unexpected Blessing, I never expected it would show up at 8:20 on a Friday night. What a great way to start the weekend!
So...here it is...ta da!
And just for fun, here's the blurb, too.
Single Mom Katy Roth thinks life can't get any worse. In the past six months she's been let go at work, had to move back home with her parents, and found out her ex is cutting his child support payment. As Thanksgiving approaches, she finds little to be thankful for in a life that is quickly spinning out of control.
Joe Mason is the town's bad boy. Literally. He's just returned from a four year stint in prison. He wants nothing more than to put the past behind him and get on with his life. He’s had a secret crush on Katy since grade school, but when Katy’s parents hire him to be their handyman, she’s less than thrilled to have him around. But soon, through her young son’s eyes, Katy discovers the good in Joe. As their feelings for one another deepen, small town gossip and prejudice threaten to ruin everything. Will Joe’s past come between them, or will they be able to get beyond it and hold onto a love neither expected?
Still no release date yet, but now that the cover has arrived, a date should follow shortly. I've already approved the galley.
Oh,and I love how the font of the new cover matches the font of my Christmas novella. Great for marketing and branding.
Until next time,
