It's been an incredible journey for Jill and I'm so glad that I've been alongside her for the last few years.  

Let's all settle in and have a major virtual party.

Chocolate. M&Ms. Champagne. Coffee. Yummy McDonald's french fries! What's your poison? Grab it and check out a sneak peek at Jill's debut! And don't forget to go buy it! Then we're going to play a round of Would You Rather! 

Buy the book! 

When Reed Hamilton arrives in Lake Endwell for a family wedding, he expects to do his part as best man then head back to the big city. But when a a tornado postpones the wedding, the town is in shambles and Reed is injured. Thankfully maid of honor Claire Sheffield offers him one of her cottages to recuperate in. Dedicated to her family and her dream job at the zoo, Claire is all about roots. She's this city slicker's opposite, yet as they help the town rebuild, Reed is captivated by her stunning looks and caring ways. He can't ask Claire to leave the life she loves for him, but he also can't imagine ever leaving her behind…

Ah! Doesn't that sound great? Okay, let the games begin! 

Would You Rather…

…be stuck alone in a tornado or with someone you love in a hurricane?

Jill: With someone I love in a hurricane! I’m a big baby. I don’t want to be in a disaster all by myself!

Reed: Alone. In both.

Claire: I would want to be with all of my loved ones in the hurricane, and I’d take my baby otters with me.

…work really hard at an interesting job or slack off at a boring job?

Jill: I have the most interesting job, and it’s a pleasure to work hard at it. A boring job is NOT for me!

Reed: Slacking off isn’t in my vocabulary.

Claire: I worked one summer at my dad’s car dealership. Talk about boring! Never again. I don’t mind hard work when it’s interesting.

…be in constant pain or have a constant itch?

Jill: What kind of question is this, Jessica?? I don’t like pain, and I don’t like itching. I’m adding a third. A constant massage. J

Reed: My recent experience with a broken leg left me with both. I’d rather be in pain.

Claire: Neither? I guess the itch. But that’s like asking if I want to eat moldy cheese or a rancid meatball. Both are pretty bad!

…go through life unable to ask any questions or unable to answer any questions?

Jill: I have a big mouth. I like to answer questions. But I ask a lot of questions too… Let’s go with being unable to answer questions. I’m a mom. Asking questions is what I do.

Reed: As a project manager for a construction company, I have to be able to ask questions. The answers show up in the end result.

Claire: Oh, this is hard! If I had to choose one, I’d say I’d rather be unable to ask questions. I love being a sounding board for my friends and family.

Love these answers! It was a good question! Ha! Jill, tell us what you’re working on next?

Jill: My second book, Unexpected Family, will be in stores in September, so I’ve been preparing for that! Unexpected Family is also set in Lake Endwell and features Claire’s oldest brother Tom, who gets a life-altering surprise. I’m also polishing my third Lake Endwell book, which is about Claire’s brother Bryan and his outdoor adventures with the new girl in town. Thank you so much for having me today, Jessica!

I’m stoked to have you here. So proud of you, Jill!
