Superstorm Sandy & Snowflake Sweethearts

Hi Friends, Carrie Turansky here, bringing you an update from New Jersey where we are recovering from Superstorm Sandy that blasted through our state Oct 29 - 30. We lost power for 4 days, but that was nothing compared to many who lost their homes and businesses near the shore. The rebuilding will take many months. Please pray for those who have been displaced and lost so much.

Our church, Calvary Chapel Living Hope in Robbinsville, was prepared and sent out teams to help members, neighbors, and strangers in need. We called to check on our members, then groups went out to cut fallen trees and clean up yards. We also provided meals for some who were sick and without power. It has been a busy two weeks, but I am thankful we could reach out and share to the love of Jesus with so many people.

Here's a photo of my neighbor's house and yard. Our team cut up her tree and enabled her to get out her front door. I cooked a meal for the team while they worked and served them chilli, rice, cookies and fruit from the tailgate of a truck. It felt good to help my neighbor and friends.

On a brighter note - My newest Love Inspired, Snowflake Sweethearts, released this week! I love this sweet holiday story, and I think readers will too. I am delighted with the cover design.

Bringing her daughter to the one place she feels safe, single mother Annie Romano returns to her hometown, Fairhaven, Washington. Though hoping to start a new life as a personal chef, Annie accepts a different job. Alex Jameson, the handsome man she secretly loved as a teenager, needs a live-in aregiver for his ailing grandmother. A big-city workaholic in town temporarily, Alex doesn't seem to realize how much he needs family, faith, and love. But the holiday season, his grandmother's matchmaking firends and one fiatherless little girl start pulling at both Annie's and and Alex's heartstrings . . . just in time for the best Christmas ever.

This is the final book in the Bayside Treasure Series. The first two are Seeking His Love and A Man To Trust. I hope you will pick up a copy today or order yours online here:

For all my US friends, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving next week and enjoy a relaxing time with family and friends.

Happy reading to all!
