Although I loved my job as an elementary school teacher, I am now very blessed to be mommy to three adorable little boys and living my dream of being an author.
I have a vivid imagination and have always been easily entertained by the stories in my head. Fortunately, I also love to paint those pictures with words. I like writing a wide variety of genres, and my current book list includes everything from a Christian time travel / romance series, to an action-packed suspense, to a romance involving a woman who likes to anonymously play matchmaker.
Although I enjoy historical, Christian, paranormal, suspense, and everything in between, my books all have one thing in common–I love to surprise my readers with the unexpected. I currently have 7 books available for kindle, nook, and paperback.
My family and I live in a small Idaho town where the number of cows outnumbers the number of people.

Chapter 2

“Come on, Abby, that isn’t funny! I was Superwoman last night and rescued a family who’d had an accident in the snowstorm. A helicopter came to the lodge and took them to the hospital. No one told you about the helicopter?”
Abby stared at me like I’d lost my mind. “Hannah, maybe you should sit down. Are you not feeling well?”
“I’m fine! But I want to know what’s going on! Where’s Seth? He’ll explain it to you.”
“Hannah, there isn’t anyone here at Silver Springs named Seth. There was no injured family or a helicopter here last night. And . . .” She walked over and lifted the window blind to reveal a sunshiny day with only a moderate amount of snow. “We haven’t had any new snow in at least two weeks!”

Five feet away, he glanced up. Instant recognition and shock flooded his handsome face. He stopped, staring at me.
“Hannah,” he choked out in a strangled voice.
My eyes met his blue-green. “Seth,” I whispered.
Before I could collect my thoughts and form an explanation, Seth crossed the distance and enfolded me in his arms. For a long moment he just held me, as if afraid I would disappear.
Finally drawing back, he studied me.
“Hannah, I can’t believe it’s really you. You’re exactly the same. Where have you been? It’s been five years! I’ve tried everything to find you.”
As I stood looking into Seth's handsome face and feeling his arms around me, all the confusion and uncertainty faded. My world finally felt right.
I smiled into those beautiful blue-green eyes and laughed lightly. “Would you believe me if I told you that to me it was only yesterday?”
Seth looked confused, but then his eyes traced the contours of my face and he murmured, “It’s been so long, Hannah, so long.” His gaze focused on my lips. I knew he was going to kiss me. I leaned forward.
At the sound of his name, Seth jerked. A guilty, pained expression crossed his face. He quickly smoothed his features and turned with a smile to the approaching woman. She was the same rude nurse I had encountered upstairs.
“Seth,” she repeated, “who’s this?”
“Katherine,” he replied, “I’d like you to meet Hannah. Remember? This is the girl who saved the Lawson family five years ago.”
Turning to me, pain again flitted through Seth’s expression. “Hannah, this is Katherine Colson, . . . my fiancĂ©."

My Review   Have I ever told you how much I love Time Travel novels?   Well, let's just say that I have read more than I can count. These 2 novels were right up there with some of my favorites. The  author has made you believe that the characters are real and this could really happen to someone. Will she ever solve the mystery and find out why this is happening to her?  I loved this storyline and I loved the way that the author has given us some things to think about. One of which is if God has a plan that God has a reason for this that she has yet to learn? I give both of these a 5/5, they are fantastic books. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are 100% my own.
