Kimberly Rose Johnson here. I’m celebrating the release of my second book A Romance Rekindled by giving away a copy to one lucky commenter.
SUSAN HILL ISN’T READY TO FORGIVE
The small-town CPA can’t forget how Blake Mitchell jilted her and left their hometown without an explanation. But when her first love returns to Leavenworth, the ruggedly handsome writer evokes conflicting emotions, especially when Susan meets the child she assumes is his daughter.
Since his parents’ deaths six years ago, Blake’s been raising his little sister on his own. But he’s never forgotten the woman he left behind. Now, he can’t undo the past, but maybe he can change the future…if he can convince Susan to give him one more chance.
The setting of this book is special to me for more reasons than one. When my husband and I were in college and dating he took me to Leavenworth to go cross-country skiing. I think I fell in love with Leavenworth that day.
At the time I never dreamed I’d be a writer.:) But that visit inspired one of the scenes in this story.
My husband has extended family in Leavenworth and while we were there his great uncle and aunt took us on snowmobiles to their cabin up on the mountainside. This cabin has since been destroyed by a wildfire. A scene in A Romance Rekindled was inspired by that cabin.
Do you have a town or special place that has captured your heart or imagination? I’d love to hear about it.
I’m giving away one copy of A Romance Rekindled this week (to USA addresses only).

Hi Kimberly, I’d have to say Galena, Il, where my husband and I went on our honeymoon. We don’t live there but it was such a neat little town with lots of history!
I’m glad you and your husband have such a happy memory. Jenny

Hi, Jennifer Where is Galena, II? I’m terrible with geography. Small historical towns are great!
I love any town that has something to do with American history. Since I am a Texan I especially enjoy places that have to do with Texas history. San Antonio is a favorite.

Hi, Susan. Thanks for subscribing to my news letter and following me on Twitter!
I’ve only been to Texas once. I went to an American Christian Fiction writers conference in Dallas several years ago. I didn’t get to see much of the city, but I did go to the mall.J
One thing stands out in my mind about that trip. It was hot even at 5:30 in the morning when I left to catch my flight home. I went to get into the shuttle wearing a light sweater thinking it’d be cool outside and I was smacked int he face with hot air. Imagine my surprise. :)
