Blurb for Georgia Sweethearts by Missy Tippens: 
A Pattern for Love…
After inheriting her great-aunt’s failing yarn shop, Lilly Barnes is determined to make it a success. All she wants is stability, something she doesn’t think possible in the small town of Corinthia, Georgia. Then Pastor Daniel Foreman rents space in her store to hold meetings for his growing congregation, and this proves to be her lifeline. At first Lilly wants nothing to do with Daniel’s big dreams, but she soon finds herself starting to share his goals. Yet trouble between her customers and his congregation make them both doubt the path they’re on. That is, until practical Lilly shows him that love is a risk worth taking.

invisibleBio for Ginny Yttrup:

Ginny L. Yttrup’s debut novel, Words, won the Christy Award for best first novel, and her latest book,Invisible, released to rave reviews. Ginny is an author and speaker who enjoys spending time with her young adult sons and loves butter just as much as her protagonist from Invisible, Ellyn.
Blurb for Invisible by Ginny Yttrup:
Ellyn–chef, cafe’ owner, and lover of butter–is hiding something behind her extra weight. Sabina–tall, slender, and exotic–left her husband, young adult daughters, and a thriving counseling practice to hide in Mendocino Village. Twila has come out of hiding and is working to gain back the pounds she lost when her only goal was to disappear. As these women’s lives intertwine, their eyes will open to the glory within each of them as they begin to recognize themselves as being created in the image of God.

Book blurb for Always the Baker, Finally the Bride by Sandra Bricker:

In Always the Baker, Never the Bride, readers fell in love with Emma Rae and Jackson, and they’ve gotten more acquainted with them in the two books that followed. But now it’s time for the diamond to meet the road in Book #4 (the final book of the Another Emma Rae Creation series) as Jackson fields an offer to sell The Tanglewood Inn, a move that could uproot this high-flying family act once and for all. Get reacquainted with all of the lovable and quirky characters from the first three books as your favorite diabetic baker figures out if she’ll achieve her greatest goal of all: Will Emma, at last, become FINALLY the Bride?
