Guest Post w/ Brenda Novak + giveaway!

Morning chickies! We've got Brenda Novak chatting with us today! Check our her guest post and her new release and leave her some comment love. She's got a tour wide giveaway game going on too so check that out :) ~Anna
Sometimes home is the refuge you need—and sometimes it isn't....

Adelaide Davies, who's been living in Sacramento, returns to Whiskey Creek, the place she once called home. She's there to take care of her aging grandmother and to help with Gran's restaurant, Just Like Mom's. But Adelaide isn't happy to be back. There are too many people here she'd rather avoid, people who were involved in that terrible June night fifteen years ago.

Ever since the graduation party that changed her life, she's wanted to go to the police and make sure the boys responsible—men now—are punished. But she can't, not without revealing an even darker secret. So it's better to pretend….

Noah Rackham, popular, attractive, successful, is shocked when Adelaide won't have anything to do with him. He has no idea that his very presence reminds her of something she'd rather forget. He only knows that he's finally met a woman he could love.

Welcome to Day 3 of my blog tour!

I hope you’ve managed to find your two gold mining items as well as your two character names from the blogs I’ve visited so far, because we’re moving on! (If you’re new, it’s not too late to join the fun. Just visit to get directions, a scorecard and a description of the Whiskey Creek package* I’m giving away as a prize to all who follow me on this adventure.)

Whenever I create a series, I have several people ask me which story is my favorite. In this case, it’s too hard to pick—too much like asking me to name a favorite among my five children. But I do have at least one favorite thing about each. I love the redemption theme of WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES, the deep emotional underpinnings of WHEN SNOW FALLS and the triumph—for both the hero and the heroine—in WHEN SUMMER COMES. Although these books are a divergence from the romantic suspense novels I’ve been writing, and will continue to write, I find that there’s plenty of drama and interesting characters to forgo, for the moment, any appearance by a serial killer. In WHEN SNOW FALLS, which won RT Book Review Magazine’s Best Contemporary of 2012 and was nominated for Book of the Year, there is a good mystery, however.  

After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She's grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she's troubled by some of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn't her mother. Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren't talking. Cheyenne is set on finding answers, but without so much as a birth certificate, it won't be easy. Things get even more complicated when her closest friend is attracted to the man Cheyenne has secretly loved for years. For Eve's sake, she decides to step aside—which lands her right in the arms of Dylan Amos, oldest and baddest of the hell-raising Amos brothers. He's the kind of guy she's sworn to avoid. She can't afford to make a mistake, not when she finally has a chance to learn who she really is and change her life for the better. But…maybe there's more to Dylan than she thought. Maybe letting him go would be a bigger mistake.

If you’d like to read Cheyenne’s story and how she figures out what happened to her when she was little, WHEN SNOW FALLS can be ordered from any bookstores or online at:
