Hello Readers –
In the upcoming months, I want to share a few of the books that come out from some of the authors I follow.
Here is an image I made to possibly use for some of these “Book Share” posts.
Today’s Book Share post has two parts: A) Jill’s Book and B) Current Resources for Authors.
Jill Weatherholt’s book
Jill Weatherholt’s (here) new book is called A Mother for His Twins.
I had the chance to do a mini interview with Jill.
Question from Priorhouse:
What are three reasons someone would want to read this book?
Answer from Jill Weatherholt:
Since I started writing for Harlequin Love Inspired, I’ve never been asked why someone should read my books, so thanks for asking.
The first reason I’d recommend A Mother for His Twins, or any of my books, is they are a fast read. Since we have a limited word count, typically 55k words, the story starts right away and pulls you in for a swift ride.
Second, I’d recommend my books because the stories are clean and non-violent. When I read, I want to escape to another world. If I wanted violence, I’d turn on the evening news.
Third reason is that if you like happy endings, you’d enjoy my books. In A Mother for His Twins there is a faith thread throughout the book, but I wouldn’t call it “preachy” or over the top. It delivers a message of hope – that all things are possible. Personally, I think we could all use more hope and uplifting stories these days.
So if you are in the mood to read, escape, and feel uplifted – why not check out Jill’s book?
Here is a snippet from one of the first reviewers for this book:
“I enjoyed the characters in this story, especially the darling little twins who have such different personalities. The romance, with such a self-sacrificing hero trying to learn from his mistakes, is tender as the former sweethearts must work through the issues keeping them apart. The emotional pain Joy carries is difficult to admit, but she works hard to overcome her past. The last line of the story is one of the best I’ve read, followed by a perfect epilogue. I loved A Mother for His Twins! Favorite quote: “You can’t change the past, but moving forward, you can do things differently.”
