Welcome to the blog tour and announcement and giveaway launch pad all rolled into one post! I’ve been “out of the office,” per se, but I had to pop on to make this post … and let you know what’s going on.
This isn’t your average blog tour, but it’s still gonna be a fun one. I’m so excited to see The Lady of the Vineyard, Flowers in Her Heart, and soon From Now ‘Til Forever released the world … and then the Kees & Colliers series will be launched (for now).
But I won’t keep you from the news any longer. Let’s talk books!
The Kees & Colliers Series
(Book 3 is coming in early August of this year!)
The Lady of the Vineyard (Book 1)
Is it too late for Adele to return to her daughter’s life?
When her ex-husband reappears in her life determined to spend more time with their child, Adele Collier allows him to take Judy to France for the summer. As the summer goes by, an internal battle rages in Adele’s heart. Can she give up her glamorous lifestyle to win her daughter’s heart?
Six-year-old Judy is more than happy to trade Adele’s neglect for her father’s adoring care. She loves his vineyard and wishes she could stay there forever, but someday she must return to England. Can Judy trust her mother again?
Flowers in Her Heart (Book 2)
Can Adele change her entire lifestyle to be a mother to her babies?
When her husband goes off to war, Adele feels lost and confused. In a new, less-than-ideal place in a frightening, less-than-ideal time, she flees to the garden with her daughters, determined to make their new house a home, even if it is from the outside in.
Battered by her own inner turmoil and scoffed at by those close to her, Adele seeks to make something beautiful amidst chaos. But can even the most beautiful flowers cover the years of scars?
Souls Astray (Prequel Novel)
Adele has been lost for a long time now …
Adele Collier has sought a carefree lifestyle ever since her tragic childhood. Determined to never allow anyone or anything to control her life or emotions again, she consistently seeks distraction in gaiety. But shaking her ghosts isn’t as easy as she’d like.
Troy Kee has been alone in the world since the Great War took his parents and left him in care of his younger sister. When she marries, he’s left to seek after his goal of a healthy, complete family. But how can he focus on his dream when trouble plagues his family vineyard?
When Adele and Troy meet, a whirlwind romance begins—but can two lost souls have a healthy relationship?

Annddd … my favorite part! The posts!
Blog Tour Stops
Aww, this interview is good for me heart! It’s very sweet. And Ang’s little “history lesson” is super sweet, too. LOVE THIS GIRL!
Also, I forgive you everything but only because of the GIF.
This review is one of my favorites! As always, Andrea gives me a concise, professional review while also managing to make me grin. Favorite quote:
That parent’s love he displayed and the lessons he taught his daughter were worth reading this book. These characters were messy with raw hearts and feelings, yet they learned so much about life and love and hope. Somehow they wriggled their way into my happy place and left me wanting more of their story.
Awww, she called it emotional! Favorite quote:
Tension, war worries, and family issues enhanced this and, at times, made me want to weep. The further into the plot I got, the quicker I wanted to read—not to be done faster, but rather to see how things would turn out for the dear characters who had secured places in my reader heart.
THIS REVIEW IS LITERALLY THE BEST! I love how organized and neat it is while also giving me those fun little comments and whatnot that we all love.
(I don’t know what all the GIFs were about … except unconditional love for that movie.)
Stay tuned for more amazing posts for the Kees & Colliers blog tour some time in the next couple weeks!
ARE YOU AS EXCITED AS I AM? Did you miss me? Did you enter the giveaway? Isn’t that necklace is pretty? (Roses are important to the story, sort of, in vase you didn’t know!) By the way, I’m working harder on keeping my WIP page updated, so that’s something to watch!
