Good morning, bloggers!!
Today is another great day in the world of blogging!! I have an awesomely talented author visiting with us today. And who doesn’t enjoy an author visit??
Please help me welcome Author Beth Hale!! Beth is enjoying a full week in the spotlight with 4WillsPublishing. It is my pleasure to share my blog with her today. I sincerely hope you enjoy her visit today… I know you will!! 🙂
Small Town Living
I grew up on a farm, and I have lived in small towns all my life. I honestly don’t know if I could live in a place that is so big you can’t see it all in one day. I enjoy the openness of the country and the close feeling of small towns. I enjoy visiting new places but after a few days, I just want to go back home.
Small towns can be a wonderful place to live and raise a family. Everyone knows you, and most are willing to help out if something bad happens. Crime—usually—is low.
Either that, or it’s pretty well hidden.
There are drawbacks, too. Again, everyone knows everyone else, and that can backfire.
There is little chance that your activities go unnoticed. Small towns are rife with gossip, and someone will invent it if there is none to be heard. People whisper. If they sense something is wrong, they will whisper but won’t interfere.
That plays a part in Magnolia Secrets.
It’s Quote Time!
As an avid reader—and writer—I love words. I love the way they flow, the way they can transport you to another time and place, the emotions they can evoke.
So I decided I would take this time to share with you some of my favorite quotes.
—Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. (Emily Bronte)
—There is no instinct like that of a heart. (Lord Byron)
—You fail only if you stop writing. (Ray Bradbury)
—If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write. (Stephen King)
—We all have our secrets. We all have our vulnerabilities. (Brett Dalton)
—I will reveal the secrets behind these doors. (Zahi Hawass)
These last two quotes played a part in Magnolia Secrets. Everyone has secrets. Some of those secrets can come back to haunt us, and some of them can end up being our saving grace.
Beth Hale writes about what she knows: strong, Southern women and the men who love them. She twines believable characters, realistic circumstances, and heart-felt emotions together to create sassy, sexy contemporary romances. She draws inspiration from the everyday life problems we all face and expands them into vivid, interesting, hard-to-put-down stories.
She learned the joys of reading from her mother, and her love affair with books has only grown stronger. If she isn’t breathing life into a new character, she is trying to make a dent in her large to-be-read pile.
Beth lives in a small town in Mississippi with her own real-life hero and two children. They share the house with a variety of pets. When she is not working her “day job” as an E-911 dispatcher, you can find her curled up on her couch, with a blanket, a cup of coffee, and a notebook.
Walker and Lainey share one explosive night together, and he awakens to find her gone. Shrugging it off as just a glorious one-night stand, he accepts a new job in a new town, New Hope, Mississippi. That’s where he finds Lainey again. She just happens to be married to the Chief of Police—and Walker’s new boss.
Lainey is terrified that Walker will divulge their secret. If he does, Lainey is a dead woman. But despite the danger, she can’t forget the one passionate night she spent in Walker’s arms.
Walker demands answers from Lainey: What secret is she hiding? Why is she so afraid? And when people begin dying, he wants to get to the bottom of it. Why is the police chief trying to brush off the deaths? Why doesn’t he want Walker to work the cases? What kind of secrets is he hiding?
Drawn together, unable to deny their passion, they risk their lives. Lainey is trapped. Walker is determined to save her and uncover the truth. Can they expose the secrets before a ruthless man destroys any hope for a brighter future?
