Hi Everyone! I’m writing today about vacation planning. Yep, vacation planning.
Oh, I know, we’re supposed to stay at home, but you know as well as I do that readers like us can go anywhere we want, any time. All we need is a good book!
To start my post today, I’ve got a list of book suggestions based on vacation settings so that you can pick the location you’d like to “visit” with the help of the Inspy Romance Travel Agency. These books were specially selected by the authors as ones that give a real feel of the setting.
Then, I’d like you to think about where you’d choose to take a real-life vacation after the coronavirus is behind us. I recognize that this is a very serious illness, but I also believe that together we ARE going to get through this! For my part, I’ve been praying for those affected and trying hard to keep a positive attitude by reading my Bible, especially the Psalms, reading uplifting fiction, like Christian romance, and reminding myself that this lockdown lifestyle won’t last forever. With that in mind, I’ve got a giveaway of my new release today and the question is–where would you like to take a real-life vacation one day in the future?
First, though, here are today’s special packages from the Inspy Romance Travel Agency for…
Your Vacation between the Pages!
Always a favorite with our clients here at the InspyRomance Travel Agency, a beach vacation brings the sound of crashing waves, the warmth of the sun on your shoulders, and the feel of sand beneath your toes! We’re booking trips right now to Pawleys Island, South Carolina, with Roadtrip to Redemption and Caribbean getaways to the Bahamas with Smile for Me.
Interested in a vacation that will remind you of God’s majesty? In my opinion, a mountain getaway is just the ticket! No need to worry about reservations or packing a bag, you can visit the breath-taking Adirondacks today just by opening a copy of Entrusted! (Note: this link takes you to Amazon, but it is also a free download via BookFunnel.)
You know, I still remember the first time I went out west as a child. I think I was about eight. I saw these big dark blobs ahead on the landscape as we drove. When I asked what they were, my dad explained that those were the shadows of the clouds! Wow! Now those are wide, open spaces! I’d never seen such a thing, growing up in the Missouri Ozarks. Are wide, open spaces calling to you? Then get ready for an all-inclusive vacation to big, beautiful Montana with A Match to Call Ours!
A Sweet Small Town
Has life got you a little (or more than a little) stressed these days? You’re not alone. For clients like you, the Inspy Romance Travel Agency recommends a restful visit to a sweet small town! We’re booking deluxe packages right now to Wisconsin with Not Until Forever, to Virginia with Buying Love, or to Missouri with my book Love at Sunset Lake!
Are you tired of sitting at home? Feeling like the only exercise and excitement in your life has been walking around your block? How about a vacation spent canoeing in the Canadian West, experiencing wildlife and the northern lights? (Personally, I’ve always wanted to see those!) If this sounds like the trip for you, Sweet Serenade is your perfect vacation between the pages!
Now talk about a vacation destination that is magical! I mean, I know leprechauns aren’t real, but just picture how gorgeous and green it will be if you vacation in Ireland! We’ve got two separate Irish vacation packages available here at the Inspy Romance Travel Agency. Personally, I recommend that you book the double package with both Star Rising and Kinsale Kisses!
You know, as a travel agent, I hear about great vacations all the time. I have to say, though, that after looking at all the covers of these books–I mean travel packages–I might just need to plan an extensive vacation with lots and lots of stops!
Seriously, I hope you, too, will be able to find a book (or, like me, two or three or four) that will brighten your days during these challenging times! May God watch over you and your family, strengthen and protect our healthcare workers, and be with us all.
And now, a giveaway!
I’m giving away a free copy (one Kindle copy, available worldwide) of my new release, Love Once More.
One way or another, freelance editor Kristen Hamlin will keep her word. She promised to raise her best friend’s baby girls, should the need ever arise, and she meant it. Obviously, the twins should never be given to their workaholic uncle. After all, he’s the same man who broke his engagement to Kristen so he could spend more time with his real love—computers. But when tragedy strikes, leaving the twins as orphans, Kristen discovers that the paperwork was never done. He’s the legal guardian.
Entrepreneur Clay Norris has his hands full, taking care of his twin nine-month-old nieces, not to mention running his computer-gaming company. To make matters worse, his former fiancée claims she should have been given custody of the twins—not him—and has now suddenly moved in next door. Coincidence? He thinks not.
Once the demands of looking after two infants require a team effort, Clay and Kristen are inevitably drawn together. Old feelings rekindle, but the couple struggles to move beyond painful mistakes from the past. As circumstances conspire against them, can they learn to forgive one another, accept God’s limitless grace, and find the courage to take a chance on love once more?
Love Once More is a stand-alone contemporary Christian romance novel and is part of the Abundance Series by Sally Bayless. If you like a sweet, small-town romance, you’ll love this uplifting novel about a couple given a second chance at love.
Love Once More is available in Kindle, paperback, and Kindle Unlimited!
To enter, just let me know in the comments where you would one day like to take a real vacation. I’ll start us off by saying that I have never been to any of the New England states and I would love to visit there in the fall. Fall is the busiest time of year for my husband’s job, so this may well be a retirement vacation, but it is the top of my list. What about you?
