Vacation: Beach or Mountains?   I live in the mountains, so I’d have to say beach

Spring, summer, winter, or fall? winter

Please tell us a little about your novel, Firestorm.
Bridget Behr and her family migrate from the bustling Amish community where she grew up in Ohio to the mostly unpopulated Upper Peninsula of Michigan after a stalker breaks into their home. While her father and brother try to find work in the area, the family is forced to reside in a borrowed RV until the house and barn are rebuilt. While Bridget is hoping for a fresh start, she’s afraid to trust anyone—even Gabriel, the overly-friendly Amish man who lives nearby. Bridget thinks he’s a flirt who serial dates and doesn’t even remember the girls’ names.

Due to not enough construction work in his Florida community to keep him out of trouble, Gabriel Lapp has been sent to Michigan to work. His father is desperate for his son to settle down. When the family walks into Gabe’s home in the middle of a thunderstorm and he discovers their circumstances, he offers to help with construction. For Gabe, the beautiful girl he teasingly calls “the recluse” once he discovers she doesn’t attend youth events, confuses him like none other.

As Gabriel and Bridget grow closer, they realize there is more to a person than meets the eye. Just as Bridget is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding love, tragedy strikes. Now Bridget and her family must decide if they should move to another Amish community, or dare to fight for the future they’d hoped for in Mackinac County.

  1. Hi, Jo and Laura! Thanks so much for the questions to get to know authors better. It's so much fun to read their answers. My favorite summer vacation is the beach. I love to float in the ocean. Firestorm seems like a great story. Thanks for the chance to win a copy! I am a follower of this blog as well. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for the review. I love the different slant on this story and the fact that they moved to ward off a stalker. How different for an Amish family! My favorite summer vacation would be in the mountains simply because it’s just so very hot here in Texas in the summer. I am a follower.

  4. I really don't have a favorite vacation spot. When we lived in Florida, for 18 years, my favorite was coming 'home' for a visit with family, but now we have moved back home so I guess you could say I'm on a permanent vacation, lol.

    Thank you for the chance to win a copy of "Fire Storm". This is on my wish list and I love Laura's books.

  5. am not sure I have a favorite vacation spot, but I loved my visit to Mackinac Island and would thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to return and stay on the island for awhile. I think that might be an ideal vacation :). Thanks for the giveaway and I am a follower.

  7. We don't travel a lot in summer since that's the busy season for my husband at work and he can't take time off. Our favorite destination is wherever we can get away too :-)

    Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  11. My favorite vacation spot is visiting family up North. We had a family get-together with our children and grandchildren in Ithaca, NY last summer. I love walking among the tall trees.
