Welcome Spring & A New Cover

by | Mar 20, 2014 | My Books | 33 comments

Hi Friends,

I hope you are enjoying the first day of Spring. It’s a bit cool and gray here in NJ, but I know brighter days are ahead. Keep reading all the way to the end of this post for a fun giveaway.

Today I’m excited to reveal the cover of my next book, Where Two Hearts Meet! Release day is April 15th. These two novellas that were originally published in 2005 and 2006, and I’ve revised and updated them for you.

There’s no better place for romance, forgiveness, and new beginnings than the Sweet Something Teashop.

Where Two Hearts MeetTea For Two

Allison Bennett, co-owner of a financially strapped teashop in Princeton, New Jersey, receives a large anonymous check that saves her business. But she has no idea who sent it. Could it be from Peter Hillinger, the wealthy businessman who owns the shop next door and wants to win Allison’s heart? Or is it from Tyler Lawrence, Allison’s old boyfriend, who returns to town claiming a renewed faith and a changed life. Allison doesn’t know who she should trust. Should she follow her head or heart, or is there Someone else who can guide her toward the best path for her future?

Wherever Love Takes Us

After twenty-five years of marriage, Matt and Tessa Malone are struggling to recover financially and rebuild trust following a business failure. Then Matt inherits property in Oregon, and he wants to move the family there to make a fresh start. But Tessa can’t imagine giving up the cozy teashop she co-owns with her sister, or leaving her friends and family in Princeton. Whose dream will they follow, and how much will it cost their family? Can they resolve their differences and rebuild a love that seems lost?

Would you help me spread the word? I will be giving away two copies of the ebook. Just share the cover photo and a link to this blog post on Pinterest or Facebook, and then leave a comment below with a link to your pin or post.

Blessings and Happy Reading!

    Carrie, I LOVE that cover! (And I think I might have critiqued one of these stories back when we first met! Is that possible? It sounds sweetly familiar!) Congrats!!

    • Carrie Turansky

      Hi Deb, Yes! You critiqued Tea for Two way back in 2004 or so. I still remember the encouraging comments you gave me! Thanks for the compliment on the cover. My friend, graphic designer Ellen Cranstoun, created this cover for me, and she is also doing the page layout for the trade paper book. She did the cover for Surrendered Hearts too. It really captures the feeling of the story. I think it will grab readers’ attention. Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, Carrie
