*collapses into the room* Oof! Hi! Goodness gracious, it’s been a busy week for me. How about you? Let’s all take a break and enjoy a new snippet from Learning to Love, my upcoming release!
Continuing from where we left off…
“Are you hurt, dear?” a voice called from above her.
Glancing up, she saw Carmen Deacon’s head poking through the tent flaps.
How could anyone think of her well-being when there were baked goods unaccounted for? Feeling around through the loose fabric that skirted the tent, her hand finally made contact with the paper bag. She pulled it free and held her breath as she nervously checked the precious cargo inside. “They’re all right!” she cried, lifting the bag high overhead in triumph.
Carmen stared at her like she’d gone mad. “Let’s get you inside and make sure you’re not hurt,” she said, ushering Rebecca into her tent. Too elated to think of the ramifications of following her, she did as she was told. But once you stood inside Carmen’s tent, she wasn’t Carmen anymore. She became Towanda, teller of fortunes, reader of palms.
***End of WWW post, but carry on to finish this sequence.***
And entering Towanda’s tent was as good as giving the woman carte blanche to predict your future.
“Come, dear. Sit.” Carmen—uh, Towanda—guided her to the table and chairs at the center of the tent. String lights and tea lights cast a warm glow over the space and made the rhinestones on the palmist’s purple cape sparkle with every movement. Pushing her into the chair furthest from the exit—the clever broad—she added, “I’ll fetch you a bottle of water.”
Here’s the blurb:
Rebecca Ledgerwood is a physical education teacher who’s ready to invest some sweat equity into a lasting romance. William Whitney is a man who’s turned his life upside down in pursuit of making a difference.
The students at Kendal High School face challenges prep school educated Will could never imagine, but his beautiful coworker Rebecca has known firsthand. Though the chemistry between them is strong, they come from vastly different backgrounds.
Rebecca is surprised to discover she and Will have more in common than she realizes. But just when she learns to trust him, Will is faced with the biggest challenge of his life. With their hearts on the line, can Will prove to Rebecca that he’s learned how to love?

I spent the entire day yesterday uploading Learning to Love on all the vendor sites, so if you’re chompin’ at the bit to grab yourself a copy, it’s now available for preorder on most sites! I forgot how exciting (and terrifying) this part of the process is. If you need me, I’ll just be over here, breathing into a paper bag. Have a fantastic week, everyone, and I’ll see you next Sunday! 🙂
