Novel Preview and Contest Info! Trouble in Store by Carol Cox

Carol Cox  is a talented new historical author with Bethany House publishers. 

Did you read her first book?  I have a feeling this one would be just as fun and unique, plus the cover has got a sassy heroine on the cover that looks as though she might be in more than just a spot of trouble. ;-) 

To celebrate the release of her novel, Carol is holding a smashing contest!

So while I lay out the party things, check out what her latest novel is all about...

More about the novel...

Fired from her most recent governess position, Melanie Ross must embrace her last resort: the Arizona
mercantile she inherited from her cousin. But Caleb Nelson is positive he inherited the mercantile, and he’s not about to let some obstinate woman with newfangled ideas mess up all he’s worked for. He’s determined to get Melanie married off as soon as possible, and luckily there are plenty of single men in town quite interested in taking her off his hands.

The problem is, Caleb soon realizes he doesn’t want her to marry up with any of them. He’s drawn to Melanie more every day, and he has to admit some of her ideas for the store unexpectedly offer positive results.

But someone doesn’t want the store to succeed, and what used to be just threatening words has escalated into deliberate destruction and lurkers in the night. When a body shows up on the mercantile steps–and the man obviously didn’t die from natural causes–things really get dangerous. Can Melanie and Caleb’s business–and romance–survive the trouble that’s about to come their way?
