What do people notice when they meet me? I hope it’s a warm and friendly smile and a genuine caring for others. For some reason, I’m also often told I have twin somewhere. The twin ranges from a former principal to an actress. LOL!

A Harvest Heart
#16 in The Georgia Peaches Series
Hope Richardson is good at just that—hoping. Problem is, she’s often disappointed—by fathers who die, boyfriends who ghost her, and lack of promotion at her event planning firm. It’s her twin sister, Faith, for whom things work out. When Faith’s fiancé lands an out-of-town job, Hope is called home to plan a wedding in the Georgia foothills … and jumpstart the tea room Faith was supposed to run with their mother.
Of all the people to make the first reservation for his family farm’s new event barn, Tucker Bradshaw least expects Hope Richardson. She might’ve rebound-dated him their senior year of high school, but she was all too eager to run back to the star football player in college. Always wanting something bigger and better than their hometown of Clarkesville. Than him.
Her sister’s wedding plans land Hope in the midst of the opening season for Tucker’s corn maze. When a harvest romance reignites, Hope searches for the faith to finally live up to her name.
Share one thing that you found difficult or challenging about writing this book.
Honestly, this was one of the easiest novellas I’ve written, probably because it’s not a full-length book, it’s set where I lived for ten years, and I absolutely adore fall. The biggest thing I struggled with was hoping the plot had enough depth. Many of my books have spiritual themes like healing or lots of action and conflict in my historicals, so convincing myself that people sometimes just need a sweet, uplifting romance took some doing. I’m usually in my head too much. J
Ask the blog reader a quirky question or two. I encourage comments!
Sweetest fall memories? Mine include taking pictures of my girls in the pumpkin patch or pumpkin carving, helping with living history tours in the fall, hayrides with friends, and last year, a train ride on the Blue Ridge Railway with family.
