GOOD GRACIE - BANISHES THE PAST AND WELCOMES ROMANCE!


GOOD
GRACIE

Pub.
Date: 4/11/2017
Genre:
Contemporary Romance

Spinning
Hills, Ohio, home of the third most haunted street in the state, is
the perfect place for three sisters to banish the unhappy specters of
their pasts—and to let romance cast its spell . . .

Gracie
Piper is good at being invisible, and she likes it that way. At just
seventeen, she took a very public stand against the boy who passed a
revealing video of her all over school. Ever since, she’s staked
her life on staying out of the limelight. But when she moves back to
Spinning Hills, she comes face to face with her painful past. In the
same historic building Gracie’s boss has assigned her to supervise
renovating works the man who helped her find justice nine years ago,
and nearly lost his own career in the process. A man who suddenly
arouses feelings that make Gracie weak in the knees . . .

Josh
Goodwin is sure he’s seeing a ghost when he spots Gracie in the
halls of his office building. Taking her case was a professional risk
that became all too personal when a bitter ex accused him of getting
involved with teenage Gracie. Seeing her again is opening old wounds,
and threatening brand-new ones—his campaign for County Prosecutor
won’t withstand a brand-new scandal. But there’s something about
sweet, gorgeous Gracie that brings out the crusader in him—and the
thing he’ll fight hardest for is her love . . .





DIY Romance
Guest Post by Ines Saint, Author

A few years into our marriage, my husband and I discovered we really enjoy working on small projects together. Neither of us is handy or crafty, but we always have a lot of fun figuring things out. In fact, I think it’s because neither one of us is great at what we’re doing that we enjoy the process. He’s a research scientist, I’m a writer, and our approach to projects is completely different. But somehow we get things done. It’s so easy to get caught up in routines and to stop thinking about the teamwork that goes into making our lives work... But when we work on something new together, we’re once again humbled, appreciative, and amused by the other’s thought process.

It makes our relationship feel like our projects; something old made new again. Here are before and after pics of a small project we completed a few years ago. The previous owners of our house left a rotted, rusty bench behind. We used some wood that was also left behind and then cut, sanded, painted, and put it all together. Our recycled bench was far from perfect, but we had a lot of fun working on it. For the few years it lasted, whenever we sat on it together, we felt close in more ways than one. When it fell apart right under us last spring, we got another good laugh out of it.

The project was worth the memories. In my new book, PERFECT PAIGE, the hero and heroine are also complete opposites. At first, they can’t stand each other. But when they find they have no choice but to work together to keep Paige’s ex-husband out of jail, they learn they make a great team in more ways than one. And because giving new life to old things is a favorite theme of mine, in the end, the answers they’re looking for will be found with the help of ghosts from the pasts and inside something old made new again.

Ines, my husband and I were out yesterday and saw a bench just like the one you show. I thought of your post. GOOD GRACIE sounds intriguing and I like the cover. Best wishes for continued success in your publishing career.
