Each year I look forward to the last book published in the year. This gives us a couple of months to catch our breath and think about the next year. This year the last books has been special to me.
Soon after we started out KenTen Writers Group, Laurean Brooks began coming. She was beginning to think about being published. Laurean is a quiet person, but a giggler. I like people who can giggle. Laurean took advantage of all of our classes and retreats. Our group began to see her writing grow. She’s like a sponge, absorbing everything we tell her. That is what made this book special to me. Not only is it a funny book, but a book Laurean can be proud of.
Not What He Ordered was released today. I couldn’t wait to see it on Amazon.com this morning. Right now the ebook and the print book is separate. It takes them a few days to squish them together. They will.
Laurean has worked hard to get pre-orders. She has a good start on her sales for her book. She’s been a pleasure to work with. So, please take a look at this book and leave a comment on Amazon.com when you’ve read it. I think you’ll enjoy it.
When Carrie Franklin struggles with a drunk, leaving him unconscious, or perhaps dead, she flees. Forgetting the promise to her deceased mother she deserts her feckless brother and takes the train to Abilene, Texas. Carrie shares a seat with Molly, who confides she’s a Mail Order Bride enroute to meet her fiancé. Molly’s friend was set to join her in this adventure. Bus suspicion made Katy Davis back out of her betrothal. Because Carrie will disembark in Abilene, Molly asks her to explain Katy’s absence to the waiting ranch owner, Josh Kramer. Due to miscommunication, interruptions, and an empty purse, Carrie, seated beside Josh, heads to the ranch under his assumption she is Katy Davis. When Josh’s aunt pulls Carrie aside to reveal a secret Carrie finds herself in a quagmire. Aunt Em will also suffer if Carrie reveals her true identity. Josh is leery of Katy Davis, never suspecting his aunt’s deception. Is Katy out to get the ranch? His attraction toward her grows, but he was once burned by a woman and swore, “Never again.” Her secret threatens to destroy any love Josh has for her. Did she kill the drunk? Is the law looking for her? Will God’s forgiveness help Carrie and Josh find true love and happiness?
