Blog Tour Launch | The Bluebird Bet

A themed tour through Prism Book Tours.

We're Launching the BOOK TOUR for
The Bluebird Bet
By Cheryl Harper

A sweet romance from Harlequin Heartwarming 
about two people on opposite sides of what to do with the Bluebird Bed-and-Breakfast.


More about The Bluebird Bet and Author Cheryl Harper

1. What is your motivation behind this book? Why did you want to write it? 
After I created the town of Tall Pines for A Minute on the Lips, I wasn't quite ready to leave it behind. This theme about coming home and finding the home and family you were meant for is one I like to work with. Other things I like: a strong, ambitious heroine, a brave hero, fun and funny secondary characters, and a chance to catch up with the hero and heroine of the first book. Add to that the chance to imagine the perfect spot for a bed-and-breakfast on a beautiful lake, and I enjoyed this story a lot.

2. What do you hope readers take with them when they read your book? 
I always want to give readers a chance to laugh along with my characters and to have a happy smile after they finish the story.

3. Do you have a favorite scene? 
There are a few I really enjoyed: the first renovation scene where Elaine has to be saved by the grumpy hero, their jogging session that turned into a race, and when Elaine fails miserably at learning to knit, I could sympathize wholeheartedly.

4. Share something about you that is unique - maybe about how/where you write... or favorite snack foods? 
Oh, man, my best writing is powered by Cheetos. ALL my writing depends on Diet Coke. Lots and lots of Diet Coke!

And I love small towns. Are you a city, town, or suburbs kind of person?

Excerpt

"How about a real bet?" His father paused. "I'll hit the road. You'll both have time to make plans, figure out the money and talk to the bank. I'll listen to both proposals and decide based on what's best for the Bluebird. A month? How's that?"

Elaine looked as if she was about to argue. He could almost see the dueling urges on her face. She wanted the Bluebird, but she needed to do the right thing. He waited to see which would win.

And he braced himself when she stepped up next to him.

"It's a bet." She held out her hand.

"I love a challenge," Dean said as he gripped her hand, surprised again at the warmth that spread from her to him. "This could be what I was looking for."

"I guess we'll see." The smile was back. A simple curve of her lips that gave her eyes a sparkle. The way Dean's world shifted in that second worried him. He'd started the game. He had no choice but to win.

Unless the Bluebird worked its magic, he was lost.

Winning isn't everything...

To other people Dr. Elaine Watson never loses. Period. So she won't miss out on a chance to restore the Bluebird Bed-and-Breakfast. The owner's son, Dean Collins, seems just as determined as she is. A famous photojournalist, he hasn't been home in years, so why does he want to turn the Bluebird, a charming old B and B, into a fishing camp?

With just a few weeks to create the winning plan, Elaine has no choice but to spend time with the guy. She's drawn to the handsome, wounded man, but being with Dean would mean giving up the future she's been dreaming of... And Dr. Elaine Watson never gives up.

  1. This sounds cute! I was first attracted to the bluebird connection, as I love them! I have wondered about life at a bed & breakfast, what it is like behind the scenes - and a book that has funny episodes about it would be great!

    1. I agree that life at a B&B sounds interesting. I'm sure you would meet a ton of fascinating people, which of course lends itself to a great book.
