This one is a crockpot cookbook, and I will tackle the societal love of witchcraft and wizardry. It’s going to be named: Hallee Crockpotter and the ________________
That said, the other night, my husband and I watched Safe Haven. I didn’t recognize the lead guy (Josh Duhamel), so when I saw him, I was kind of surprised. He looks EXACTLY like my character in Burn (an unpublished novel), Ian MacDermott. EXACTLY. The entire movie, I couldn’t get over how much he talked like him, moved like him, looked like him — it was almost eerie.
Here is the prologue from the Virtues and Valor Series, Book 1, Temperance’s Trial, due out in September. This will be a serialized set of seven novellas that take place during WWII. Each book will follow a different female heroine throughout the planning and execution of a mission in occupied France. Every character will be based on a real life heroine from that war. In the back of each novella, I will tell you about the heroine who inspired that book’s character.
Temperance’s Trial follows Marie Gilbert, codenamed Temperance.
Sapphire Ice has been nominated for the July Fiction book of the month at The Book Club Network.
This is what the person who nominated Sapphire Ice said:
I recently read Sapphire Ice by Hallee Bridgeman and I think it would be a great book for the July book of the month in fiction. I’ve often read books where a wealthy man falls for an unwealthy woman, but often they really didn’t seem plausible. However, I think Hallee did a great job with this theme in the book. The characters are very realistic and the more you read, the more you realize the depth of the characters when you begin to learn their backgrounds and how they came to be where they are today. There’s humor, romance, and also some excellent lessons the reader can learn about growing in a relationship with Christ and how that fits into everyday life. I liked this book so much, I was thrilled to learn that it was the first book in The Jewel Trilogy and I didn’t have to wait for the other two books to be published!! Read them ALL! They are all so good!
What an amazing nomination!
Melody and James lead separate lives of discord until an unexpected meeting brings them to a sinister realization. Unbeknownst to them, dark forces have directed their lives from the shadows, orchestrating movements that keep them in disharmony. Fire, loss, and bloodshed can’t shake their faith in God to see them through as they face a percussive climax that will leave lives forever changed.
A Melody for James officially publishes today! (And, since it published yesterday at Amazon, it is currently ranked #28 in Christian Suspense on Amazon!)Pin It
The day we return is the publication date for A Melody for James (stay tuned for purchase links!), and the garden will need some serious care after a week’s absence. Everything will get crazy busy again. For today, though, while I’m insanely trying to prepare my house for our house sitter, catch up on laundry so that I can pack, and seriously weed my garden so that nothing dies in our absence, I’m just imagining how wonderful it will be to kick back at the pool in our resort or sip coffee at Cafe Dumond.
The next post you get from me will be the announcement of the book sale!
Have a WONDERFUL week — and don’t forget to plan to spoil your husbands and dads for Father’s Day!
