Blurb for Love Will Find a Way by Pamela S. Meyers:

When April Love opens her new eatery and catering business in an old Victorian in the village of Canoga Lake, Wisconsin, trouble is afoot. During renovations, she discovers evidence that the home had once been the hideout of a famous gangster. When several break-ins and an attempted arson fire threaten the grand opening, April and handsome fiancé Marc Thorne wonder if the gangsters still around?

Tag Line: Someone doesn’t want Lovin’ Spoonfuls from April Love to open and will go to any means to stop it – including murder.

Blurb for Thyme of Love by Pamela Meyers:

April Love has always dreamed of being a chef. But she didn’t expect a former fiancé or murder to be part of the recipe for her new job. When April Love signs on to be an in-house chef at an old lakeshore mansion in Canoga Lake, Wisconsin, she comes face to face with her long-lost love, the drop-dead gorgeous Marc Thorne. It doesn’t take long for their old magnetism to recharge, but how can she trust the guy who left her nearly at the altar eight years earlier? Her gut tells her something happened to Marc in between-something he’s reluctant to reveal. When April’s boss is murdered, Marc is accused of the crime. Unless April can find out who really killed Ramón Galvez, her chances for love will end up at the county jail. But someone else is just as determined she not solve the mystery…and will go to any length to stop her.

Blurb for Unraveled by Sharon Souza:
 
Unraveled, a contemporary women’s novel, is the story of Aria Winters, an idealistic young woman who seeks a new adventure in her very privileged life. She travels to a country she knows nothing about, meets people who change her life in uncomfortable ways, and faces a crisis that nearly undoes her. She returns home to the “family compound,” where she tries to hide from life, and most especially from God, who brings her face-to-face with the worst mistake she ever made, because he can’t fix what she won’t face. But facing her failures is not high on her list of favorite things to do.

Blurb for Taking a Risk on Love by Irene Brand:

When Vance Bolden finds a young woman washed ashore after a storm, he’s shocked but determined to help her. The task is daunting enough…then Vance discovers that Evelyn Weber is with child.  As he makes the most of a precarious situation, Vance can’t help but remember the young wife and son he lost while he served in the Confederate army.
 
Before leaving the London mission she called home for twenty-two years, Evelyn was convinced that God’s will for her life was to travel to America and work among the Cherokee in North Carolina.  And she still is, although the strange turn of events certainly makes her undertaking more difficult. Now stranded and without  knowledge of her husband’s fate, Evelyn sees a hard road ahead where trusting a stranger is her only route to survival.
    
Despite wounds from the past, can Vance and Evelyn take a risk on each other, on God, and on love?
