ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Recently, Lisa’s Blue Sky Hill Series, set in Dallas, received national attention with back-to-back nominations for American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year Award for A Month of Summer (2009) and The Summer Kitchen (2010). Pithy, emotional, and inspirational, her stories bring to life characters so real that readers often write to ask what is happening to them after the book ends.
Lisa is one of a select group of authors to find success in both the Christian and mainstream markets, writing for both Bethany House, a Christian publisher, and NAL Penguin Putnam, a general market publisher. Her bestselling books have become a hallmark of inspirational fiction. Her works have been featured by the National Reader's Club of America, AOL Book Picks, Doubleday Book Club, the Literary Guild, Crossings Book Club, American Profiles and have been chosen for numerous awards.
When not busy dreaming up stories, Lisa spends time on the road as a motivational speaker. Via internet, she shares with readers as far away as India, where her book, Tending Roses, has been used to promote women's literacy, and as close to home as Tulsa, Oklahoma, where the county library system has used Tending Roses to help volunteer mentors teach adults to read. Recently, the group Americans for More Civility, a kindness watchdog organization, selected Lisa along with Bill Ford, Camille Cosby, and six others as recipients of the National Civies Award, which celebrates public figures who work to promote greater kindness and civility in American life.
ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of Larkspur Cove, go HERE.
So, this book is great. In my opinion anyway. I love stories about new adventures and new places. That's really what i'm about, is new things. so this book was really relatable. Plus small sleepy towns are the best stories. This story of a mother and son and past of a tragic stricken man is one I didn't want to keep turning the page to in fear of reaching the last one. The imagery in this book is so real that when Lisa Wingate gives you a scene you feel as though you are actually there and you can feel what the characters are feeling. It's a great story and one I recommend for anyone ready for a mystery, and a book you will take your precious time reading ;) I didn't want to put it down, but I also didn't want it to end!
thank you guys!
