September is usually the month we start back to school and turn our attention toward fall. Here in East Tennessee we actually started school back at the first of August, so we’ve been through close to two months of school already. And this member of the school staff is already looking forward to Fall Break.
Fall is my favorite season. I love just about everything about it. The weather is perfect since it’s not too hot and not too cold. The leaves paint a most beautiful landscape across our mountains here. My husband likes to make a fire in the fire pit. We sit around roasting marshmallows or just staring into the glowing embers, relaxing for a moment.
Fall is also my favorite season because my wedding was in this season. I guess I can’t help but get some romantical (official word at my house) feelings. Some of my favorite anniversaries have been when hubby and I have rented a cabin in the mountains. Since it’s always cooler there, we get to light a fire in the fireplace and soak in the hot tub and enjoy the plethora of colors from all of the surrounding trees.
There’s this little picnic area up in the mountains we have gone to several times. We pack in supplies so we can roast a hotdog and eat at our favorite table near a stream. Makes me sigh right now just thinking about it.
In case you haven’t caught on yet, these small things are very romantic for me. I am a hopeless romantic. I still swoon when my hubby does little thoughtful things for me. And I still love to read romance stories that make me say, “Ahh.”
My latest release, Lamp Unto Her Feet, includes some of these thoughtful romantic things. The hero, Trevor, takes Kenzie, the heroine, to that little picnic spot by the stream in the mountains. I’m hoping readers will settle down with a roasted marshmallow and possibly emit an “Ahh” while reading this story, and maybe, just maybe readers will be coaxed into some of those romantical feelings I have at this time of year.
About Lamp Unto Her Feet
Kenzie Murrah has lost the guiding voice of her Nana Nita just when she needs it most. She’s graduating mid-year with her early childhood degree, but her parents expect her to join the family chiropractic business. In her Bible, Nana explains how God’s Word can guide Kenzie, but there’s doubt on Kenzie’s part, until the highlighted verses begin to follow her life much too closely.
Trevor Wallen escaped an embarrassing and reputation smearing incident to become a police officer in the small Tennessee town. He strives to do his best to follow Christian principles but longs for God to bring someone into his life with those same morals and values.
Kenzie and Trevor share an attraction for one another that grows into more until a tragedy threatens to end everything. Kenzie begins to shy away from reading the next scripture passage, for fear of what may happen.
Will Kenzie learn she can trust God’s Word? Will Kenzie and Trevor get the chance for a happily ever after despite the dangers of his occupation?
