By now, most of you know that we are a puzzling house.
I don’t mean our home is confusing or perplexing. Of course, when I’m on a deadline, Derek might disagree.
We work jigsaw puzzles—a lot of them.
Working on a puzzle is my go-to activity when I struggle with my writing, or with life in general.
It’s a way for me to process things swirling in my head.
In between the rush of the holiday season, I had a lot going on.
My main goal was to complete a three-book proposal and promote my latest book released on December 28th.
When the stress began to build, I retreated to my puzzle.
I had a lot of fun with this puzzle.
Until the end….
Despite the missing piece, the puzzle had served its purpose.
I submitted my proposal.
Will it be purchased?
That remains to be seen, but you’ll be the first to know.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share an upcoming contest.

Will a simple summer song bring them back together for a second chance at love…
Cole Kallen never planned to be gone so long. He'd only left Laurel Cove to escape the painful reality of seeing the woman he loved hanging onto his best friend and business partner's arm. Everyone could see that London and Denton didn't make beautiful music together. Cole had kissed her once, and that kiss had rocked his world. But how could a nerdy computer geek compete with all the jocks vying for the popular cheerleader's attention? Before she could reject him, he'd broken it off and poured himself into the company he'd founded with his college buddies.
From their very first kiss, London Carlson had been smitten with the handsome songwriter. But Cole had shattered her heart with some flimsy excuse and avoided her carefully crafted attempts to reunite. His best friend's idea of fake dating seemed like her only hope, but Cole deserted her for a country she had to look up on a map and still couldn't pronounce. After ten years, the digital nomad's back in town for their friends' wedding, his beautiful music making her heart ache for a lifetime with him. But now that his name's included in the popular magazine's most recent list of billionaires, he probably won't even remember her name, let alone that life-changing kiss.
Can London's faith carry her through yet another rejection? Will a song bring them back together for a second chance at love? Or will Cole choose to lead a solo lifestyle forever?
Thanks for reading!
