Gone without a Trace Giveaway!

Welcome back Patricia
Bradley to the blog today. She and her characters are playing Would You Rather
and she’s giving away a copy of her newest Logan Point series book: Gone without
a Trace! Yay! You can enter to win below.
Would You Rather…  
…be shot or stabbed? (Hey it’s suspense so…)
Alex: Uh, neither? But
if I have to choose…I guess be stabbed.
Livy: I’m with Alex for
once—neither. But I’d rather be shot.
Patricia: I can’t stand
the thought of a knife slicing me, so to be shot.
…be happy because you’ve been lied to or feel emotional pain
knowing the truth?
Alex: Since I don’t like
to be lied to, I’d rather feel emotional pain knowing the truth.
Livy: Hmmm. I can’t
believe I’m going to agree with him again.
Patricia: Lie to me.
…fall in love but lose it or never fall in love?
Alex: Where do you get
these questions? I want to fall in love and keep it.
Livy: Why does he always
get to go first? He stole my answer.
Patricia: For once, I
agree with both of them.
Thanks for playing! Tell
us what you’re working on right now.
I’m working on a
Christmas anthology with several Harlequin Heartwarming authors and at the same
time I’m laying out the plot of my next series, Cold Cases set in Memphis. The
first book is due October 1.
Here is Gone
without a Trace back cover blurb:

The past is
repeating itself—and time is running out
It’s been more than two years since
homicide detective Livy Reynolds’s cousin disappeared from Logan Point. Unlike
most people in her hometown, Livy has never believed that Robyn left
voluntarily. When Dallas private investigator Alex Jennings contacts her
concerning a senator’s missing granddaughter who was last seen in Logan Point,
Livy notices eerie similarities between the two disappearances. With self-doubt
plaguing her after killing a teenager in the line of duty and an almost instant
dislike of the self-assured PI, she’s finding this investigation an uphill
battle. But with the prospect of finding her cousin on the horizon, she’ll have
to find a way to work with Alex—before it’s too late.
Patricia Bradley lives in North
Mississippi and is a former abstinence educator and co-author of RISE To
Your Dreams,

Would You Rather with Keli Gwyn! Plus, a Giveaway!

I’m excited to host one
of the sweetest women on the planet today! The kind and lovely Keli Gwyn is in
the house and we’re playing a few rounds of WYR with her and her characters in
her newest novel through Love Inspired Historical. Let’s get right to it. Also,
you can enter to win a copy of Family of Her Dreams (US residents only). See how below!

Would you rather…
…fly or read minds?
Spencer: Fly. I’d like
to get a bird’s eye view of my ranch.
Tess: I’d love to read
minds, especially Spencer’s. I’m eager to find out what goes on in his head
because very little of it comes out of his mouth.
Keli: I’m with Tess. I’d
love to read minds. Learning how different people think would make it easier to
get into my characters’ heads.
…fall in love and have your heart broken or never fall in
love?
Spencer: I did fall in
love. My heart was broken when my wife was taken from me, but I kept going. I
had to. I have two small children to care for, but now I have the help of my
headstrong housekeeper, Tess. She’s brought light and laughter back into my
life.
Tess: Having been raised
in an orphanage, I long to love and be loved. I dream of the day I have a
husband and children of my own. Even though I could get hurt in the process,
the rewards far outweigh the risks.
Keli: I’m all about love
and romance. Loss and broken relationships are an inevitable part of life, but
the pain eases over time, enabling a person to experience love anew.
…be wealthy and successful but never find love or find love
and live meagerly?
Spencer: I’d choose love
and a modest life. The pursuit of wealth robbed my father of happiness, and I
want no part of that.
Tess: Love is essential.
With it, one is rich even if she has little.
Keli: What a timely
question. Gwynly retired just last week. As a teacher’s family, we’ve lived
modestly, but we’ll be cutting down even more now. I’m up for that. My guy and
I have a wonderful marriage, and I’m dearly loved. Talk about being blessed.
That’s me.
Keli, tell us what inspired this story?
I love California’s Gold
Country where I live. There’s a wealth of history here, which fascinates me.
When I learned that the sleepy Gold Rush-era town of Shingle Springs nearby was
once home to the busiest rail station in the state, my curiosity was piqued. I
imagined what life would have been like for the stationmaster, and Spencer introduced
himself. A grieving widower, he needed help. Who better than Tess, a confident,
outspoken woman who has a heart overflowing with love she’s eager to shower on
two motherless children—and their handsome father?
What are you working on currently?
I’m writing a story set
in my historic hometown of Placerville. Once again I’m working in local
history, which I love to do. I’ve fallen hard for my hero and heroine. Flynt
and Jessie are bright, determined people eager to overcome their shameful
pasts. When they’re forced to spend time together both on and off the job,
secrets come to light. Secrets that could destroy everything.
Thanks for hosting me,
Jess. It’s great to be here. I have a question for your blog’s readers.
 Since
I’m learning to live on less, what is one money-saving tip you’d recommend?
(Jess here) I’ll chime
in with my answer. I’ve discovered that if I create the weekly menu, then go
through the pantry to see what I’ve got and only add to the grocery list what I
need, I save money. I also include a snack or two for the kids but they know
when it runs out, it’s out until I hit the grocery store the following week!
Award-winning author Keli Gwyn, a native Californian,
transports readers to the early days of the Golden State. She and her husband
live in the heart of California’s Gold Country. Her favorite places to visit
are her fictional worlds, historical museums and other Gold Rush-era towns.
Keli loves hearing from readers and invites you to visit her Victorian-style
cyber home at www.keligwyn.com, where you’ll find her contact information.

novel Family of Her Dreams

A Family to
Cherish 
Headstrong Tess Grimsby loves her new job caring for the
children of a recently widowed man. But she never imagined that she’d fall for
her handsome employer. Yet Spencer Abbott is as caring as he is attractive, and
Tess can’t help but feel for him and his family. Though, for the sake of her
job, she’ll keep any emotions about her boss to herself.
Between his stationmaster responsibilities in a gold-rush
town and trying to put his family back together, Spencer has his hands full. He
soon finds his new hire’s kind personality warming his frosty exterior. But
could he ever admit to seeing her as more than just an employee?

Things You Don’t Know About Liz Johnson and a Giveaway!

@lizjohnsonbooks
Hey
everyone, I’m so excited to have my friend and author Liz Johnson here today!
Liz and I bonded over a favorite Monday night TV show. Teen Wolf. Don’t judge!
Great cast, great writing, great romance and suspense…speaking of romantic suspense
Liz is sharing the inspiration behind her newest Love Inspired Suspense, Stolen
Memories
, sharing some fun facts about herself as well as giving away a copy of
the book! Liz, thanks so much for being here! Tell us what inspired this story.
(Liz) “Stolen Memories came about
in an entirely new way for me. A little over a year ago, I received a call from my
literary agent. The editors at Love Inspired Suspense were putting together a
continuity series featuring books from six of their authors, and I had been
invited to participate. My agent asked if I was interested. Of course, I was. I jumped at the
chance to work with the talented authors writing the other books in
the series. We were each assigned a book in the Witness Protection series and
worked together to keep the overall story arc flowing smoothly between books
about the different characters. It was a brand new writing format for me. I’d
never collaborated with other authors like this, and, while there were some
unique challenges to keeping all the story lines and secrets in place, I really
enjoyed the camaraderie and encouragement of working together.”
(Jessica) That
is so cool, Liz! Now I have to read the other ones. Now that we know how the
story came about, tell us three fun facts about yourself so readers can get to
know better.
3 fun facts about Liz:
I played
the alto saxophone from 5th to 10th grade. And there’s a
very good reason that I haven’t picked it up since then. (I wasn’t very good.) J But I
always wanted to have a musical talent.
When I was
a kid, I wanted to live during the American Civil War. Now that I know it
wasn’t as romantic as the books made it out to be, I’m glad to be alive in
modern times. But I’m still fascinated with the 1860s and love to read fiction
and nonfiction about the people and places of the era. And since I moved to
Middle Tennessee, I love visiting the historic plantations that played a part
in America’s history.
I’m a
terrible cook, but I made a commitment to get better at it this year. So far
I’ve conquered BBQ chicken in my slow cooker and tacos and frozen…just about
anything.
(Jessica)
Ha! I’m good at frozen anything too and I just made BBQ in my crock pot on
Monday. Great minds, eh?!
Thank you
so much for visiting with us today and congratulations on your new 3-book  Contemporary Romance contract with Revell. Can’t
wait to read them!
Buy the Book! 
Sneak Peek
at Stolen Memories:
IF ONLY SHE

Where is she now? With no answers and no place to go, Julie accepts Detective
Zach Jones’s offer to help her solve both mysteries. The handsome, loyal cop
makes her feel safe. But someone is trying very hard to make sure her memories
stay buried forever.
