“Dinny’s Challenge” becomes a #1 Best Seller!

As a Christian author, I thank God for each gift of success.

“Dinny’s Challenge” became a #1 Best Seller for a glorious while and I knew took screen shots of its exalted status immediately!

Creating the book was an interesting exercise in humility, as you can see from my post, “Dinny’s Challenge:” A Fresh Start. It taught me not to take criticism personally, but to see it as a helpful aid to improvement.

My critiquing circle’s good judgment made the book successful, and I am eternally grateful to them.

Readers tell me my books bring back happy horse memories from their childhood, and one was even encouraged to get on a horse again, after reading about the equine adventures of my heroes and heroines!

Such feedback is enormously rewarding and encourages me to continue writing.

I’m now working on “Friday’s Folly,” Book 3 in The Sinclair Island Romance series.

P.S. If you would like to join my Launch Team and receive Advance Review Copies (ARCs) of my new books, please comment below. I’d love to welcome you aboard!

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT?

Running into her former fiancé forces Dinny to face her cowardice towards him decades earlier.

Dinny gave Grant back his ring and married the man who was accusing him of fraud.

Now widowed, she attends a wedding on Sinclair Island and unexpectedly runs into her ex-fiancé – three decades after he moved away.

Dinny’s beloved mare is about to go blind and Grant meets with her to suggest an unorthodox solution for saving the horse’s sight. But his girlfriend becomes determined to keep the once engaged couple apart and extracts a promise from Dinny not to interfere in her relationship with him.

Dinny realizes she’s falling in love with Grant again. Problem is, he’s a crook and her deceased husband’s arch-enemy. And she’s given her word to stay away from him.

Grant never stopped loving her, and a nearly fatal incident with a horse gives him the unexpected opportunity to clear his name.

When Dinny discovers the real criminal’s identity, she is faced with the sordid truth that her marriage was based on a lie.

Can Grant forgive her for believing the wrong man? Can she forgive herself – or her late husband?

Under pressure from Grant, she admits her true feelings, she then tells him that she mustn’t give into them. Angry and disappointed, he walks out on her.

Soon afterwards, he risks his life to save his girlfriend and Dinny knows she’s truly lost him.

Her life will be unbearable without him and she has to get him back.
