Thank you for inviting me to sit a spell at your blog site and talk about my upcoming book, The Wedding Pearls, which hits the shelves in only three more days. Excitement is bouncing around southern Oklahoma like marbles in a tin can.
A couple of weeks ago the author copies arrived and I’m sure my squeals were heard all the way to both coasts. The cover is truly beautiful and I can’t wait for the book to reach all my awesome reader’s hands.
Tessa never minded being adopted. She was so secure with her family that she didn’t even think about her biological family until one day the sexiest cowboy from the state of Texas swaggered into her Louisiana travel agency. She thought he was there to book a vacation but boy was she wrong. He was a lawyer who’d come at her biological mother and grandmother’s bidding. They were going on a road trip around the great state of Texas and they wanted her to go along so they could get to know her.
She took Branch Thomas’s card but she had no intentions of going on such a fool hardy trip. But then her adopted mother told her that she really should go and get to know her blood kin. And just before she left her mother gave her a journal to record her feelings. It wasn’t to keep track of the chronological dates and things that she saw but it was to be used only for her feelings and emotions on the trip.
So there she was stuck for a whole month in the front seat of a 1959 Cadillac convertible. Seated between her biological mother and Branch, who was the driver for the five women, she figured she might last three days before she threw the journal in the trash and flew back home from the nearest airport. But as the journey went on and she began to wonder if fate had put her in that car to fall in love.
