Start of a new series releases today....

Jenna Mindel here, super excited to kick off my September release!  Falling for the Mom to Be is the first book in my Maple Springs series that is set in Northern Michigan.
One of the fun things about this book is the hero's occupation.  Matthew Zelinsky is a first mate on a Great Lakes freighter.   I love seeing these huge ships on the big lakes or traveling through the Straits of Mackinac or in the Soo Locks.  I love lurking the Boat Nerd website too, so I knew I'd have to have a seafaring hero on a Laker.

Another fun thing is Matthew's family.  A big Polish family with a maple syrup sugar shack on the family homestead.  I grew up in Upstate NY and Vermont maple syrup is touted as the best around, but personally, I think Michigan maple syrup is the bomb.  So, I'll tie in the syrup operation over the course of the series.  It's Maple Springs after all, where love runs sweet.

So - are there character occupations that lure you into reading a book?  If so, which ones are your fav's?

Feel free to join me along with other Love Inspired authors with September books tonight from 8-10pm on Facebook.
 It'll be a fun time!   Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you all later too! 
God bless,  Jenna.

Congratulations, Jenna! It sounds like a great series! I plan to be at the FB party...if I can stay awake. :) I'm at work at 6:00 a.m., so bedtime comes early.

Hi Jenns! Glad to see you have another book out! So exciting! No matter the occupation what draws me is some good banter among the main characters or humor that is scattered throughout. I have to admit that cowboys or first responders draw me most but I'm open for just about anything judging by the amount of books that I have. Jenny

Morning Jill!

Hey Jennifer,
Gotta love a cowboy! I sure love to read about them too. :) Not many in Michigan, though. LOL. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

Doesn't matter although I'm drawn to firefighters, cowboys

Oh yeah! Good choices. Love the firemen characters too. One of my fav's is Linda Goodnight's "The Baby Bond" - great story, great Hero! :)

Thanks for posting!
