Need Feedback on Another Cover Model for New Book

Hi I need feedback so I can choose another cover model for a new book. I hope to have 4 new books out this year–a new 3 book romantic suspense series and another historical novel. So let’s get started. Please view the 3 models below and tell me which on evokes a response in you–a positive one of course.

My heroine is a young single mom–the kind of young woman you’d like to have as a neighbor so you could “mother her.” But she’s starting a new business, a coffee and sweets shop, in a tourist town so she’s not a “needy” heroine. I will choose a few commenters to give free ebooks to so leave a comment. I really need to know your reactions.

Here’s #1


Here’s #2


Here’s #3

So leave a comment–which one do you think I should use? THANKS IN ADVANCE!–Lyn

Lyn Reviews Pat Simmons’ Lean On Me

Lean on Me (Family Is Forever, #1)Lean on Me by Pat Simmons
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Romantic, romantic, romantic–the chemistry between Tabitha and Marcus was real. Loved it. Also loved Aunt Tweet–the lovable woman whose memories are slipping away but whose imagination keeps spinning. When Marcus and Tabitha first meet sparks fly but not the romantic kind. But their true characters shine as God puts them to the test. Great read, romance and story of family.

Lyn Reviews Charlotte MacLeod’s Rest You Merry

Rest You Merry (Peter Shandy, #1)Rest You Merry by Charlotte MacLeod
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first Peter Shandy book I’ve read. WHAT A HOOT! I loved this book and so did my dh. I bought it because it said that it was a combination of Agatha Christie and P G Wodehouse–two of my favorite authors. And it was. A great mystery ala Christie tradition. And both erudite and slapstick humor ala Wodehouse (remember Bertie Wooster and Jeeves?–Well if you don’t, get to the library and check one out.)

The setting is New England, a small agricultural college. Since my dh pointed out that no one mentioned cell phones and the phones all had dials, that this was a pre-1990’s era book. I’d say around the 1960-70’s but it fits the characters. AND WHAT CHARACTERS THEY ARE! Somehow realistic and over the top at the same time. And I loved the dawning romance between Peter and the librarian Helen Marsh. If you want a mystery that is hard to solve and a fun holiday read, this book is for you! (Note: there is a very little profanity in the dialogue-I chose to overlook it.)

First Time on Sale for 99 Cents, The Heart Hopes

The Heart Hopes

What could unite a disgruntled DA and the pretty teacher, responsible for his hung jury? 

Perhaps a little boy in need of love 

Young and eager, Patience begins her first year of teaching. One first grader, Jackson, sparks her concern. Can she help him start off his school years on the right foot?. A stint of jury duty takes her away from Jackson, and into conflict with Jackson’s dad, by-the-book DA Gil Montgomery. Her “not guilty” vote means he’ll have to try the case again. And she’s upset that her absence had badly affected Jackson, now branded the “class troublemaker,” just what she was trying to prevent.

Gil and his ex-wife’s conflicting parenting styles continue to jeopardize Jackson’s emotional well-being. As irritated as Gil is with Patience, he soon realizes she is the key to helping his son. Patience is willing to help. But is Gil willing to “hear” her as she uncovers evidence for the re-trial that could change his mind about who assaulted Bertha Perkins and stole her valuable antiques?

Share Your Christmas Blessing

I’l like to share my Christmas blessing.

My husband and I moved to the northwoods of WI in the early 2000’s. On the first Christmas morning I witnessed something called sublimation. Not psychologically but in chemistry. Here’s what I mean.

I was standing at the kitchen window and looked out and I saw what looked like snow but special snow I’d never seen before. And the sun was shining brightly–not a cloud in the clear blue sky. Where could snow come from without clouds?  And it was the most beautiful snow I’d ever seen–like cascades of crushed diamonds–veils of them coming down in shimmering waves. I was transfixed. And when the blessing finally ended, the snowy ground glittered like a field of diamonds. I was uplifted, filled with joy. And this happened again on another Christmas morning. Twice–I was amazed.

My husband explained sublimation. Here’s the dictionary definition.

Chemistry.–to convert (a solid substance) by heat into a vapor, which on cooling condenses again to solid form, without apparent liquefaction.

He explained to me that the vapor was being translated into solid form–snow–without becoming liquid first.

Since it happened twice and both times on Christmas morning, i took it as a special gift from God–for all of us who witnessed it. Have you ever experienced a special blessing like this at Christmas? It doesn’t have to be from nature but from another person. Please share here. I will love hearing your special blessings. And will be giving a free ebook to a few randomly chosen commenters. And here’s a Christmas special for you. Loving Winter is on sale for 99 cents till November 26th!


Happily single, Winter Woodard is looking forward to a busy, fun fall and holiday season.  Clay Dixon, the very successful football coach at the local high school, has rebuffed all offers of “home-cooked meals,” keeping the female population at bay.  

Then bad things begin to happen. And unexpectedly Clay Dixon stands by her through a holiday season fraught with unnerving and destructive setbacks. Welcome to Steadfast, a small town whose people and mysteries you may never forget~
