Book Blurb for The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher:

Bethany Schrock’s love life has derailed, her faith hangs by a thread, and she is spending hot summer days wading through a lifetime of accumulation at the home of five elderly Amish sisters. She’s not sure what she wants out of life, but she knows that she’s not finding it in Stoney Ridge.

Then a new guest at the Inn at Eagle Hill ropes her into volunteering in a community project for down-and-outers. Reluctant at first, Bethany starts to feel a bit of joy and satisfaction again. But not so much that Jimmy Fisher, adorable and impossible, can woo her affections with his winks and tricks. Well, maybe a little.

When a figure from her past reenters her life, Bethany must decide: What does the past mean to her future?

9780373878284_p0_v1_s600Bio for Patricia Johns:

Patricia Johns started writing seriously after she graduated from her BA in English Literature. She has a total of 13 novels published so far under different names, but this is her first Love Inspired novel. She intends to keep the Harlequin writing coming, so stay tuned to her blog or Facebook page!

She lives in Alberta, Canada, where the winters are long and cold. This suits her just fine, since she can enjoy the snow on the warm side of the window. She’s married, has a young son, and a parakeet named Frankie.





Blurb for His Unexpected Family by Patricia Johns:

When a baby is dropped into her life without warning, Emily Shaw is overjoyed. It’s a bit odd that her distant cousin named single Emily as guardian, but she’s thrilled all the same. She never thought she’d get to be a mom. Another unexpected blessing is that baby Cora arrives in the arms of police chief Greg Taylor. Despite all three of them instantly bonding, Greg has promised himself he’ll never be a father. And now Emily’s smooth-talking relative is challenging her right to raise Cora. Will Emily have to make an impossible decision between the child she already loves and the man who loves her?
