Giveaway: Cold Case Takedown 10 print copies

Hey everyone!

Last year I didn’t have a single Love Inspired Suspense novel release because I had taken 2019 off for some other things unrelated to writing. But I gotta tell you, it was great to get back to the land of fiction in 2020–I needed the escape, as I’m sure many of you did and found it in reading or writing yourself.

And all the work in 2020 is coming to fruition in 2021 which means you’ll have 3 brand new books to scarf down in April, August, and December. This Cold Case Investigators series was one of my favorites so far (I say that about every series at the time).

The series follows the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation Cold Case Unit (MBI) and tells their stories of struggle, faith, romance, and high-impact danger!  They’ll battle things like clinical anxiety and panic disorder, gender bias, guilt, shame, feelings of uncertainty and no control. You’ll see villains who are less diabolical (though cut-throat all the same) and more motivated by feelings you and I could be motivated by if we didn’t have faith and hope but acted on greed, unhealthy desires, and desperation. 

And all books will take place in small fictional towns in Mississippi, although I admit to modeling Book 2 after where I live! 

April kicks off with Cold Case Takedown which is unit chief Colt McCoy and podcaster Georgia Maxwell. It’s a story about battling fear and clinical anxiety. It’s about faith and prayer and even medication–because some anxiety needs treated as much as high cholesterol! And it’s about giving grace to those who suffer with anxiety/panic that aren’t spiritual in nature but medical. It’s also about small town corruption in regards to football. Everybody down south knows football is king! Friday Night Lights, baby!

So to celebrate, I’m giving away 10 signed paperback copies of Cold Case Takedown to 10 people! EEEK! And just a little ahem…authors truly do love reviews because it helps push the book out into the big book world to be seen by others. Even if it’s “I really liked this book and these characters!” Early reviews can be posted on Goodreads too! But Amazon makes ya wait until Release Day, just saying.

Now, feel free to enter for a chance to win 1 out of 10 copies and share this post so your friends can enter too! Share the love, y’all. 

U.S. Only;  18+

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each one of you!

Warmly,

Just a Little Honey…

Hey friends!

This year has been wonky to say to the least, but I’ve been busy writing like crazy. I guess I was making up for the year sabbatical I took. 

I’m so excited that I’ve been contracted for another 3-book series with Love Inspired Suspense. Cold Case Investigators will be kicking off with Cold Case  Takedown in April 2021. But I’ve also been working on a sweet romance series: The Honeyhaven series!

Hometown Honey released back in the summer and Honey for the Holidays is up for preorder right now and releases on October 20th! I love this town. It’s quirky and unique and full of southern flavor–think Hart of Dixie tv show. It’s been a joy to bring these characters to life on the page. Each story comes with challenges, of course, but at the end of the day it’s a pleasure. I laugh often at their banter and actions. If you’ve kept up with the series, I hope you feel like part of the Honeyhaven community and that with each new story, you step right into the story world like a friend on the page with them.

If you haven’t preordered Honey for the Holidays, now is a great opportunity since it’s at a special price of only $.99 cents. It will go up to $2.99 on Release Day.

PREORDER HONEY FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

If you haven’t read any books in the series, while you don’t HAVE to read them in order, I’d recommend it. But then, I’m an in-order-of-written kind of girl! 

You can browse all of the Honeyhaven stories on my website.

If you have read the Honeyhaven series, which book is your favorite so far? I’d love to hear from you!

Warmly, 

Jessica
