Blurb for Murder in Plain Sight by Marta Perry, HQN Books, December, 2010:

Did a sweet-faced Amish teenager brutally murder a young woman? To save her career, big-city lawyer Jessica Langdon is determined to defend him—against the community’s bitter and even violent outrage. Yet without an understanding of Amish culture, Jessica must rely on arrogant businessman Trey Morgan, who has ties to the Amish community…but believes in the boy’s guilt.

Jessica has threats coming from all sides: a local fanatic, stirred up by the biased publicity of the case; the dead girl’s boyfriend; even from the person she’s learned to trust the most, Trey Morgan. But just when Jessica fears she’s placed her trust in the wrong man, Trey saves her life. And now they must both reach into a dangerous past to protect everyone’s future—including their own.

Blurb for Just for the Moment:

Just for the Moment: The Remarkable Gift of the Therapy Dog by Deanna Klingel is a poignant, yet sweetly humorous spiritual journey into the therapy dog ministry of Lily and Jessie, two Golden Retrievers who visit health care facilities. Learn how ordinary pets become therapy dogs, and how they weave their small miracles every day. The dogs show us that uncomfortable moments in awkward situations exist only for humans. In a unique compilation of vignettes, in places where frustration and loneliness reside, the therapy dogs show us that the greatest gift is to listen quietly, and spend just a moment, paying quiet attention. A soft nuzzle, a head in the lap, a friendly look into the eyes may be all that was needed in that moment, and is often not remembered beyond that moment. This is a book for every family member and friend, dog lovers of all ages, people in search of a ministry, or anyone who enjoys a pleasant read.

  6. Hi Juanita, I'm not sure you intended this blog for me since my book isn't suspense. But, I hope it's on your list, too. Blessed holidays. Thanks for blogging. Deanna

  7. Hello, Cindy, and good luck winning one of the books. Blessed holiday season to you, and thanks for blogging. Deanna

  8. Hi Appleblossom, Thanks for your blog. Good luck in the drawing. Deanna

  9. It's only Thursday and you have two more days to blog with me. However, I have to say goodbye early as I'm leaving for Dallas, TX for a booksigning and I haven't got a laptop! It's been great fun, thanks for blogging with me. Margaret, thanks for inviting me to check in with readers, I've enjoyed it. I'll send out the winning book and look forward to hearing from you all again. After Sunday, if you want to catch up to me it's Thanks again, all of you, and Christmas Joy and Blessings. Deanna

  10. Sounds like a great read. We have a yellow lab who my hubby wanted to train as a service dog for him but she would make a much better therapy dog and that is what we plan on doing.


  11. My mom and I have been waiting for Marta's book! YAY! So glad it's release time for it!
