Up and Coming Fiction! A Bride Shop Opens in El Dorado, California by Keli Gwyn

Determined widow Elenora Watkins escapes her controlling father and heads west with her nine-year-old daughter to accept a partnership in a successful mercantile. Upon her arrival, the surprised proprietor, Miles Rutledge, withdraws his offer because she's a woman, a fact his well-meaning but meddlesome mother had kept from him. Although Miles comes to regret his hasty decision, Elenora informs him she has no intention of being his partner after all and will open a mercantile of her own across the street instead. The two fight for the town's businessand against their growing attraction.

  7. Debra, wfnren, Renee, and LoRee, thanks for the support. It means so much to me to know that you're looking forward to reading the story. I hope you enjoy it.

    Yes LoRee, the waiting can be tough at times, but it adds to the anticipation. I've plenty to keep me busy, though, and have a feeling the seven months will fly.

    The January Bride book is out now, A Bride's Flight from Virginia City, Montana. My copy arrived yesterday. The Bride books in Barbour's new Destination Romances line, which are the historicals, come out in odd months. The Wedding books, which are the contempories, come out in even months.

  8. Woohoo! I cannot wait to read your book, Keli!

  9. I definitely want to read this book. It sounds like a great read! Way to go, Keli!

    Merry Christmas Everyone! :-)

  10. KELI, oh my goodness, yes I have to spotlight it!! July will be a wonderful month, dear Keli. :D

    RENEE, from what I've seen, yes ma'am I think you're right!!

    LOREE, can you imagine? It must feel so close and yet so far away. Much like it is for us. ;-)

    KELI, who wrote the Jan. title? That one sounds great!

    KATIE, *rubbing hands in anticipation!*

    RHONDA, there are many new books coming out, I can't wait for!

  11. Just seeing this now (Christmas Eve is doubly-busy as it's my youngest's birthday!)
    So fun to glimpse Keli's book cover. I love it!
    And I can't wait to read her debut novel. Keli is one of the nicest people I've met in the writing world.

  12. Wow, what a book cover, Keli! I'm putting on my to-read list. :-) Thanks for sharing, Casey! Merry Christmas!

  13. It is so hard to wait ... it feels like Christmas. But July is so far away. :(
