It’s release day!

I am thrilled to announce the Release Day for Henry and Evaline! (Ebook releases today; paperback releases later this week).

And just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Release Day is always an exciting day for authors. It’s the day our characters finally come alive through hours of writing—many times long hours far into the night when we should be sleeping.

Readying a book to send off into the masses is not for the faint of heart. It involves hours of pounding on the keyboard, back-and-forth chat sessions with our editor, and reading the manuscript over a thousand times until we have it memorized. But it is so worth it to see the finished product and to share it with our readers.

Henry and Evaline is available in ebook format on Amazon by clicking here.

Below is the official blurb and some fun quotables. I hope you enjoy reading Henry and Evaline as much as I enjoyed writing it!


What happens when an entire town becomes involved in a matchmaking scheme?

Evaline doesn’t know what to think when her mother volunteers her for the Bible club helper position. What she does know, however, is that she is most unimpressed when Henry Gregory, the Bible club leader, mistakes her for one of the participants. Who knew a quiet man of faith could have such an ornery streak?

Henry never met anyone quite like Evaline Browning. The petite librarian volunteering as a Bible club helper is a lot of spunk in a small package. But the more he’s around her, the more he fears he’ll lose his heart. Could this be the woman God has planned for him?

Soon, Evaline and Henry find themselves caught in a matchmaking endeavor. Polls, well-meaning gossips, and more shenanigans ensue as the residents of Chokecherry Heights do their best to convince Evaline and Henry they’d make the perfect couple.

Travel back in time for a peek into the life of one of Chokecherry Heights’ most beloved characters.

Readers of sweet Christian romance will enjoy this faith-based novella with heartwarming and memorable characters. Can be read as a stand-alone or in conjunction with Love Under Construction.
