I’m coming to the end of my Rescue River series of inspirational romances from Love Inspired. This series is close to my heart because it’s set in Ohio, where I was born and raised; it’s a diverse and welcoming community with a history connected to the Underground Railroad; and every book features kids and dogs!
The last Rescue River book comes out in February of next year–it’s called A Family for Easter, and features a curvy heroine who suffers through the worst blind date ever during the opening scene. I’d love it if you’d go preorder it now–preorders really help authors impress our bosses at the publishing house. Or just check out the cover and rave with me… I do love pink, so this might be my favorite cover yet!
But I love each of the books in the series, all for different reasons. Indulge me by letting me tell you about that, and I’ll offer you the chance to fall in love with Rescue River as well.
Engaged to the Single Mom: My first book for Love Inspired… a dream come true! It’s a reunion romance, at a dog rescue farm, where a struggling single mom tries to give her seriously-ill son his last wish.
His Secret Child: Shy, introverted librarian gets snowed in with a macho soldier of fortune… can you say wish fulfillment???
Small-Town Nanny: Feisty teacher becomes summer nanny for a stuffy, wealthy CEO. I love how Susan Hayashi resolves her issues with her mom while becoming a sort-of mom herself. And the way Sam Hinton says a final farewell to his wife who died too young… I challenge you not to cry.
The Soldier and the Single Mom: Poor Buck was a stumbling-around drunk when we met him back in Engaged…but I really wanted to show how God can rescue us from our addictions, hurts, and heartaches. This book also features a lot of history from when the town of Rescue River harbored enslaved people escaping to freedom… and the start of a tender love story between a couple of eighty-somethings!
The Soldier’s Secret Child: What would happen to a handsome guy who got severely scarred while serving his country? And what if he’d promised his dying buddy to keep a really big secret? Vito D’Angelo is hands-down the most emotional and romantic of all my heroes, so I had to give him an amazing proposal scene.
A Family for Easter: Curvy Fiona Farmingham has body-image issues (who among us doesn’t?), but when she realizes she’s passing them down to her daughters, she has to get a grip… helped out by handsome Eduardo Delgado, who finds her gorgeous just as she is. This is a blended family story (six kids between them!) and it also gives closure to a couple of other subplots in the series. Remember those eighty-somethings….
So there you have it: the Rescue River series from Love Inspired. To help you get excited about the last book, tell me which of the first five sounds most interesting to you (you can read more about each on my website).
