Cover Reveal and Stay Tuned!

Howdy, ReaderFriends! I'll keep this short today, because Wallaby is napping and I need every second for the editing cave--mostly because when he's awake these days, he's alternating between "Whee! I can roll onto my tummy!" and "Aaahhh! I'm stuck on my tummy!" (He's working on what to do with that pesky arm that keeps getting in the way of the return trip. Presumably, it'll come.)

Anyway, without further ado … Heads up for a new Jesse Hayworth release, this week or next! Remember the vintage store where Krista found her wedding dress? Well, its owner, Della Fyne, has a story of her own!

E-only, buy links coming soon. (AKA, as soon as I stop moving commas around and hit 'publish'.)

This was intended to be a novella, but wound up about twice that length, though shorter than my print books, so I'm calling it … er … a story? Whatever you want to call it, it'll be $2.99, and will be available on Kindle (at a minimum) this week or next-ish. We can say June 15, if you like :)

Here's the blurb:

In a town that loves its Wild West past, a handsome newcomer is looking to shake things up …

When single mom Della Fyne finds herself empty nesting at age thirty-seven, she knows its time to start a new life—or at least add a few new layers to her old one. But it’s not easy for the owner of the only vintage clothing store in the quaint town of Three Ridges, Wyoming to look forward rather than back … especially when she’s determined not to repeat past mistakes.

Contractor Max Ramsay likes things new and shiny. He and his crew are in town for the two months it will take them to modernize the old library, and this is his big chance to prove he’s got what it takes to move up in the family business. He doesn’t have time for last-minute changes coming from a busybody shopkeeper who’s got the mayor’s ear … even if she has a quick wit and more curves than a mountain road.

When the two wind up helping with the library’s grand reopening gala, their big debate—which is better, old or new?—turns into a series of double-or-nothing dares. Then dates. Then more. But as the library gala approaches, the bigger question looms: can there be a future for this small-town shopkeeper and a high-tech hunk from the city?

I'm super excited to share this story with you. So … stay tuned!

  4. Love the cover!!! Will it be available on NOOK?

    1. Hi Carla, and thanks! Yes, it will be available on NOOK, but probably not for another week or so. I'm on a bit of a learning curve with the formatting stuff, and want everything to be perfect before it goes live!
