There’s nothing like the feeling of holding a newborn in your arms. The wonder and awe of gazing down at this new life.
Writers feel pretty much the same about their book babies, and I’ve just added another to the fold, again to the Chapel Cove Romances.
Having started writing Accept Me back in August 2019, when release day finally came last Monday, I was more than ready for this “pregnancy” to be over. Goodness, I did a cover reveal here on Inspy Romance for this story way back in October. In my defense, Accept Me was supposed to be a Christmas release. For several reasons, it wasn’t. But now Accept Me is here, and oh how beautiful she is (yes, it’s a girl!). I can only look on in wonder at yet another beautiful story God has given me.
My readers think so too. Whew! Here’s what they’re saying…
- Ms Ueckermann has knocked this out of the park! Wow! Words cannot express how their story affects your heart. It’s powerful, it’s intriguing, it’s emotional, it’s God’s love for His children wrapped in one so eloquently written story! This, my friend, is a book not to miss!
- Accept Me is another wonderful addition to this charming and delightful series! The author infuses this story with little pearls of wisdom and nuggets of truth.
- While reading this book, my emotions were taken on a wild ride. It was well written and flowed smoothly, so smooth that in the end, my heart was tumbling all over the place. I loved how this ended up being a story of hope. Hope in a God who loves us and wants our best even when things look like they are falling apart around us.
- Accept Me includes my favorite things: books, pancakes, pink fluffy peonies, carrot cake and the Mitten State. As always, Marion Ueckermann weaves a page turning story with modern topics.
- Beautiful story, with great characters and another hard to put down addition to the wonderful series.
- Accept Me is a warm Christian romance with lessons on faith and trust. This book will tug on your heartstrings!
- I absolutely love this story. It is one of the sweetest love stories that I have read.
- Accept Me is a very well-written romance that deals with tough subjects, but leaves the reader feeling good at the end.
- Accept Me is such a beautiful story of acceptance. This book really spoke to my heart!
She came seeking her mother. She found so much more.
On her deathbed, Haddie Hayes’s mother whispers a secret into Haddie’s ear—one that she and Haddie’s father had kept for twenty-eight years. The truth that Haddie wasn’t born a Hayes sends this shy Kentucky girl far from the bluegrass of home to a small coastal town in Oregon in search of her birth mother. Hopefully in Chapel Cove she’ll find the answers to all her questions.
EMT Riley Jordan can’t help himself—he’s a fixer, a helper, sometimes to his own detriment. A 911 call to Ivy’s on Spruce has Riley attending to Haddie Hayes, the new girl in town. After Riley learns of Haddie’s quest, he promises to help her find her birth family.
When Haddie makes the wrong assumptions, she vows to give up on her foolish crusade and go back to the only place she called home, a place she’d always felt safe and loved. But a freak accident hinders her plans of bolting from Chapel Cove.
And running from Riley…who has a secret of his own.
THANKSGIVING WOULDN’T be the same this year. Deep in her aching heart, Haddie Hayes knew it.
Tears blurring her vision, she leaned forward, raising her body slightly from the saddle, and urged her Appaloosa into a gallop across the bluegrass field toward home, something she wouldn’t normally do because of the horse’s age. The temperature barely over thirty today, cold air stung her face. But when she’d mounted the nineteen-year-old mare an hour earlier, she hadn’t cared that the weather wasn’t suitable for an afternoon ride. She’d had to get out of the house for a while, away from the smell of death pervading its walls.
Her precious mom was dying. But neither Haddie nor her parents spoke about it. Foolish—as if not speaking would make the horror of what faced them go away.
This had been the longest year of her life, and she’d spent many hours over the past few months curled up on the hay in one of the empty stables, striving to lose herself between the pages of a book to blot out her mother’s illness. Just as she’d done throughout her childhood. Except then, the loneliness of being an only child and having no friends had driven her into story worlds of handsome princes and pretty damsels in distress. As she’d grown older, romantic tales of blossoming love formed her view of the world.
Worlds that would always remain but a fantasy.
Her eyes stung, and Haddie quickly brushed away the moisture that welled.
Being an awkward, sickly, and frail child, she had shied away from people, all of which had served to feed her unpopularity at school with no one seeking to befriend her. So it was that at a very young age, she’d found solace in the silence of the school library. And she’d found friends in the stories she read.
In the world of make-believe, her love of books was born.
