I’m happy to announce the release of my 3rd Love Inspired book. Book birthdays are just so much fun. By my calculations A Perfect Match is my 31st release, and I’m just as thrilled and grateful as I was when I released my first book in 2010.
This is a fun story about a confirmed bachelor. Know anyone like that? It’s such a funny term, but you know what I mean. The guy who is convinced that he’s completely happy ordering pizza and streaming videos. I know a few of those guys, and they were my inspiration for A Perfect Amish Match (available in stores now, ebook releases 5-1). I had a lot of fun writing this book and putting it in an Amish setting, because at the very core of things? People are people, and we all deal with many of the same problems. I hope you enjoy the story.

Amish, Mystery and Suspense Novels
From the Back Porch
Anyone else remember bookstores? I’ll bet you do. When I was a child, it was one of my favorite places to go (second to the library), and when I was an adult it was my favorite date place. Yup. Lots of people went on dates at bookstores. Right?
As we all know, there are fewer bookstores every day. I try to tell myself that it’s the same thing as the disappearance of movie stores. Who needs a movie store? We can stream movies! Who needs a bookstore? We can download books! I get it, but you know…it still makes me a little sad.
One of the few stores that continues to carry books is Walmart, and I’m so thankful that many Walmart stores carry a full display of Harlequin and Love Inspired books. (Unfortunately my Walmart doesn’t, but let’s save that for another post.) One of the reasons I decided to publish with Love Inspired is that they have a good price point ($4.48) and they distribute through Walmart. Next time you stop by your local Walmart store, take a look. Even if you read on an e-reader, a book is a nice gift to give to a friend and it costs less than my favorite cup of coffee and scone.
A Perfect Amish Match is now available in bookstores everywhere as well as on-line, and it will be available in ebook on May 1.
