A Reason to Run (The Camdyn Series Book 1) by Christina Coryell

People are talking about C.W. Oliver, the mysterious author with a book sitting atop the bestseller list. They are also talking about Camdyn Taylor, the pretty blonde from an embarrassing proposal rejection video that has recently gone viral.
What would happen if people knew that those two individuals were one and the same?

Camdyn Taylor doesn’t like chaos, but it always seems to find her. When it inevitably appears, she does what comes naturally: She runs.
That is one of the reasons she finds herself drawn to her ancestor, Willa Lawrence. A young widow with a new baby in the early 1800’s, her future and inheritance looked steady. Then, unexpectedly, she ran. With only the most basic necessities, she set off on a journey with her child toward an uncertain future.
Camdyn is determined to keep her pen name a secret, and she’s almost as determined to discover the reason for Willa’s impulsive departure. When she finds herself suddenly thrust into the spotlight after a suitor’s ill-advised proposal, she resorts to following Willa’s footsteps to Tennessee in order to finish her latest book.
Finding herself lost and in need of a little hope, she crosses paths with Cole Parker at just the right moment. She quickly becomes aware that things might never be the same, and while she’s focused on unearthing Willa’s reason to run…she just might discover her own.

Raspberries and Vinegar (A Farm Fresh Romance Book 1) by Valerie Comer

Farm Living at its Fictional Best!

Currently available in the LOVE BRINGS US HOME box set!

Sweet like Raspberries. Tart like Vinegar.

Josephine Shaw: complex, yet singleminded. A tiny woman with big ideas and, some would say, a mouth to match. But what does she really know about sustainable living as it relates to the real world? After all, she and her two friends are new to farming.

Zachary Nemesek is back only until his dad recovers enough to work his own land again. When Zach discovers three helpless females have taken up residence at the old farm next door, he expects trouble. But a mouse invasion proves Jo has everything under control. Is there anything she can’t handle? And surely there’s something sweet beneath all that tart.

About The Farm Fresh Romance Series

Raspberries and Vinegar is the first novel in the Farm Fresh Romance series and is followed by Wild Mint Tea and Sweetened with Honey. These inspirational romance tales follow the adventures, romantic and otherwise, of a group of young women who purchase an old farm together in northern Idaho to grow their own organic food and prove to those around them that they can make a difference. These Christian romance novels are stories of living sustainably on the land with a focus on local food. The Farm Fresh Romance series doesn’t pad the issues nor preach about them, but allows the characters the freedom to grapple with environmentalism and sustainability as believers.

A contemporary Christian romance novel, Raspberries and Vinegar crosses genres into farm lit. Readers consistently comment on the uniqueness and creativity of the blend.

EXCERPT

Jo straightened her back, pasted on a smile, and consulted her clipboard. Ellie, at the desk, had informed her the resident of Room 224 lived in the present, at least some days. She tapped the door lightly and nudged it open. “Hello, Mrs. Humbert?”

An old woman, white hair floating around her face like a halo, sat in her wheelchair by a small table. A man swiveled at the intrusion from his seat facing the window.

Jo caught her breath. Zach?

“Please come in, my dear.” The old lady peered at her through rheumy eyes. “Do I know you?”

Jo closed the space. She could block Zach from her thoughts. This was her job. She took the soft white hand in hers. “I’m Josephine Shaw, the facility’s new nutritionist, and I’m here to talk to you about food.”

Zach chuckled. “Be careful, Grandma. She’ll toss your stash of candies in the garbage.”

Thanks a lot, buster. Jo shot a glare at Zach. Just her luck he felt the need to interfere on his grandmother’s behalf.

Jo turned her back on him and tried for a light tone. “Unless you have any fair-trade organic dark chocolate in there. That stuff is hard for me to resist.”

Mrs. Humbert’s poufy hair shimmered as she shook her head. “Now that’s something I don’t have, but John can pick some up for us if you like.” She patted Jo’s hand. “Then I can bribe you to be nice to me.”

John? Jo shot a questioning look at Zach, but he just lifted a shoulder and shook his head. She squeezed the old lady’s hand. “I don’t need bribing.” Not with anyone who needed help, and the fact that this was Zach’s grandmother clinched the deal. “It’s my job to make sure you’re getting the best possible nutrition, though, so let’s keep those empty calorie snacks at a minimum, shall we?”

Zach laughed.

If it hadn’t been directed at her, Jo might have enjoyed the deep, full sound. But no. It was at her expense. She gritted her teeth and swiveled to face him. “May I ask what’s so funny?”

He waved a hand. “Really, does it matter? Why make big changes? Let these folks enjoy the remainder of their days and eat what they like. It’s not like a diet change is going to make that much of a difference.”

INFECtIOUS: Revised Second Edition by Elizabeth Forkey

“It’s all about blood, Ivy. It always has been.”

I’ve known something was wrong. I’ve sensed but avoided the truth that I was slipping. You’d think if you recognized that you were dying that you’d hurry to stop it, to heal whatever is sick. It’s innately human to struggle for life. But for some reason, though it makes no sense, it’s also innately human to lean away from eternal life.

Six years ago, when millions of people disappeared from the face of the earth in a silent instant, all hell broke loose. People did what you’d expect: they panicked. We’ve been programmed with the will to survive—to care for our loved ones at any cost. Husbands became murderers. Children became thieves. The world turned upside-down and survival was all anyone could think about. That was before we knew about the disease.

INFECtIOUS, the first novel in The INFECtIOUS Series is a post-apocalyptic love story with a zombie twist. Young Ivy has a killer sense of humor, wit and a personal relationship with the Curse Giver. Ivy longs for freedom from her overbearing spinster Aunt and from Toccoa’s protective fences. A trip outside the compound brings confusion, danger, romance and death into her already troubled life. Two different guys–polar-opposites–are vying for her heart. Ivy is desperate to hold onto The Cure in the midst of the chaos and heartache. INFECtIOUS is a love story that will ravage your heart and leave you hungry for more.
