I was introduced to Sandra Leesmith's novels last year and have thoroughly enjoyed the two I've read. So of course I was thrilled to learn that she's releasing a new book—Love's Promises! But today, I'm taking part in the cover reveal. All very exciting stuff! Without further ado, I give you the cover!
Isn't it pretty? It may seem "cliche", but I'm a fan of having both the man and woman represented on the cover. After all, the story generally isn't only about one of them! And water! Perhaps one day, I'll be able to have a house (or even a tent!) on a piece of waterfront property. I dream of having a view like this from my bedroom, but in the meantime, this cover is a pretty substitute. Finally, the colors. Orange and blue. Perhaps Sandra is an Auburn fan? Or not? Either way, I'm a fan!
I like that all three of Sandra's covers from this year have a certain continuity. Each cover definitely has its own flair, but I still know that they're Sandra's books. It's a hard choice, but I think Love's Refuge might be my favorite ... but only by a smidge. Perhaps because I too am a blond? Or used to be?! :)
About the Book
Available now in Kindle format from Amazon
For Monica Scott, building her late father’s house at Lake Tahoe isn’t an option—it’s a necessary distraction from confusing memories and an uncertain future. But a handsome planner working for the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) is keeping Monica from moving forward with the project. Never mind that he’s young and charming with a great sense of humor. No one is going to stop Monica from making her father’s dream—and her own—a reality.
All Greg Linsey wants is for his work to mean something. His job at TRPA gives him the opportunity to fight for the environment he loves and make a difference in his small corner of the world. But with the sophisticated Monica Scott’s arrival, his dedication is tested as never before, especially when Monica turns to his unscrupulous nemesis for assistance.
As Greg and Monica’s animosity turns into something far sweeter, can they learn to accept each other’s promises and avoid the growing danger to their lives and hearts?
