Lakeside Reunion: Bed-and-breakfast owner Lindsey Porter prays she won’t run into Stephen Chase when she returns to Shelby Lake. Five years ago, the cop jilted her to marry another woman, and Lindsey fled town. But no sooner does she hit city limits than Stephen pulls her over for a broken taillight. Despite the past, he’s still able to stir up Lindsey’s old feelings for him. Now a widower and single dad, Stephen recognizes a second chance when he sees one. And he’ll do anything to make Lindsey trust in God and take a risk for love—again. Read an excerpt of Lakeside Reunion
Today I'd like to welcome debut Love Inspired author Lisa Jordan! Below is a short interview with this lovely author.
Why did you choose to be a writer?
When I was 16, I read The Promise by Danielle Steele. The happily ever after ending made my heart sigh. At that moment, I knew I wanted to create the same heart-sighing promise of hope and happily ever after for my readers.
Where is the worst place you've ever been stuck waiting?
A local regional airport for 15 hours!! I was flying to Florida in February 2009 for a My Book Therapy retreat. The airport is on a hilltop, and at that elevation, it was snowing so hard the runway was too icy for planes to land. My flight kept getting delayed. Finally, via cell phone, Hubby convinced me to talk sternly to them to drive me to a larger airport and pay for my flights to Florida. I had arrived at 5:00 a.m. for my original flight and finally left at 9:00 p.m. to be driven to another airport. The small regional airport lacked vending machines or a restaurant.
What is the most common compliment people give you?
I don’t look my age. Many people can’t believe I have an 18-year-old and a 21-year-old.
What’s one thing you would rather pay someone to do than do yourself?
Grocery shop and cook my meals. I used to love to cook, but now I’d rather spend that time writing.
What do you think is the secret to a happy marriage?
Shared faith, unconditional love, an abundance of grace, communication, supporting one another, and saying “I’m sorry.”
I’m holding a scavenger hunt to promote my Lakeside Reunion release. Plus, blog commenters on my blog hop will be put in a drawing for fun prizes—breakfast basket, Love Inspired Authors basket, autographed copies of Lakeside Reunion. Visit my Lakeside Reunion Contest page for more information.
The token for this blog is a squirrel.
