I got some very exciting news today about my upcoming book release, Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon, a historical romance. Main line publishers (both secular and Christian) send their new releases to Romantic Times Review Magazine in hopes of getting a good review. It does all genres, not just romances, and they're highly respected in the industry.
The highest numerical rating a book can get is 4 1/2 stars and my new book received 4 1/2 stars. But beyond that, it also was awarded Top Pick, meaning the reviewer felt that everyone should read it. Romantic Times often gives no top pick awards during any given month, and at most might give 3, so this is considered a very high honor.
Here's what the reviewer had to say:
Summary: Turn-of-the-century schoolteacher Margaret Garvey grieves over the loss of her father and her home. But she still manages to contribute to the well-being of the community, while several young men wish to court her and win her heart. Then she risks everything by taking in two young runaways—only to learn that they may be involved in murder and sabotage of the local sawmill. Can Margaret clear her head and heart to make the most important decisions of her life?
Find it at a reduced cost on Amazon...it will ship shortly after January 3rd.
