Hi Friends, 

Today is release day for Seeking His Love, and I’m excited to tell you about this heartwarming, contemporary romance. It’s the first of three books in the Bayside Treasures Series. Each story is set in beautiful Fairhaven, Washington, and is prefect for readers who enjoy books by Denise Hunter and Becky Wade. You’ll also meet a fun group of matchmaking, senior-age friends who are intent on helping their younger friends and family members find lasting love. You can look forward to reading A Man to Trust this summer, and Snowflake Sweethearts in the fall. That’s right, all three novels will release in 2019!


Click over to my website to learn more about Seeking His Love and read the first chapter. I also have a link to my Pinterest board with photos of the characters and setting  to help you visualize the story.  Seeking His Love was originally published in 2010 and has been revised and updated for new readers to enjoy. It’s available as an eBook for only $2.99 and in paperback for $10.95. I hope you’ll order your copy!

Join me on Friday, February 15th, 8:00pm Eastern for a fun Facebook Live Launch Party. I’ll share behind the scene info about the book, and there will be some fun games and giveaways! The party will take place on my Facebook author page. RSVP to receive a reminder the day of the party.

I’m celebrating the launch of Seeking His Love with a Cozy Winter’s Evening Giveaway, which includes: A pretty plush throw, A box of Earl Grey Tea with Lavender (my favorite), a 20 oz. Yeti Tumbler to keep your tea warm, and some delicious chocolates.  

This giveaway is open February 12 – 17. A US winner will receive the gifts pictured above. If an international winner is chosen, she will receive a $50 Amazon gift card instead. Fill out the Raffelcopter form below to enter the giveaway!

Seeking His Love is available in Paperback and eBook versions through Amazon. If you enjoy the story I hope you’ll post your review online and share your thoughts with me and on social media. Thanks very much!

Until Next Time, Happy Reading!

    My favorite place is my corner reading chair in my bedroom. I can put my feet up, snuggle under my Sherpa blanket, and read under my purple fairy lights.

    When I read I curl up on the couch with a mug of hot cocoa and one of my super cozy blankets! If I had an oversized chair I’d sit there instead, though. ?

    Hi Carrie, I have a recliner that is near our fireplace. I sit there with a throw, perhaps some hot chocolate and read, read, read.

    I like to curl up in the recliner or on the couch with warm blanket. Sometimes if I’m really cold, I’ll come out to the kitchen and read while standing in front of our woodstove. 🙂

    I’ve read the Highland Hall series and Across the Blue. I’m looking forward to reading more books by Carrie Turansky, who is my favorite author now! My local library doesn’t have any of your books so I have to send in request to borrow from another library. I plan on purchasing some of your books so one day my daughters will get to enjoy reading them. Your books are so beautifully written!❤️

    I love curling up on my couch and reading. My family is usually watching a movie or something and I can sit with them, but enjoy my own storyline.

    One day I hope to have a book nook with a super cozy chair & ottoman with a fabulous blanket. Until then, I either grab a blanket and chill out on the chaise part of our couch or I head up to the bedroom and cuddle with the cat while I’m reading.

    When the weather is nice i like to sit on our back porch swing and read there. When the weather is cold i like to sit on the couch in the living room prop up my feet and read, and of course my dog sits next to me. 🙂 Your book looks and sound very intriguing. Thank you for the chance.

    I haven’t found a place where I don’t love to read. Favorite places include the doctor’s office waiting room, in the car waiting to pick up a kid, in a hammock, in bed, on the couch, waiting in line, during my lunch break, when I can’t sleep, and so on…

    My couch or in bed would be my favorite places to read a book during winter. But I also love listening to books while soaking in a nice warm bubble bath.
