Claire’s visit to a luxury hotel in Maine awakens repressed memories, threatening all she holds dear.

In 1989, Claire Dellamare disappeared from her own fourth birthday party at the Hotel Tourmaline on the island of Folly Shoals, Maine. She showed up a year later at the same hotel, with a note pinned to her dress but no explanation. Nobody knows where Claire spent that year—and until now, Claire didn’t even know she had ever been missing.

But when Claire returns to the Hotel Tourmaline for a business meeting with her CEO father, disturbing memories begin to surface . . . despite her parents’ best efforts to keep them forgotten.

Luke Rocco lost his mother under equally mysterious circumstances—at the same time Claire disappeared. After a chance encounter reveals the unlikely link between them, Claire and Luke set out together to uncover the truth about what happened that fateful year.

With flashbacks swimming just beneath her consciousness and a murderer threatening her safety, Claire’s very life depends on unscrambling her past . . . even if her family refuses to acknowledge it. Someone-maybe everyone-is hiding something from Claire Dellamare, and it will cost her everything to drag the truth out into the light.

God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea, BY: Rose Chandler Johnson

There are so many wonderful things that are in this book. This is a devotional that is wonderful written and designed. I have to say that one of my favorite things about the book was the sweet tea moments. I love the fact that is has places though out it that you can journal your own notes or thoughts. It takes things that can happen in your everyday life and turns them into a learning experience for you. It is very easy to understand, which I love. A devotional that can be read over and over again and applied to things happening in your own life. I think that would make an excellent book for group discussions.

Do you worry about orphans? Anne Garboczi Evans

Do You Worry About Orphans?: 1 Practical Thing You Can Do

Did you know there are 400,000 children in foster care in America at this very moment? And this year over 20,000 of them will age out without ever being able to reunite with parents or be adopted. I’ve met kids who entered the system as young as three years old and went on to spend their entire childhood in foster care; never to be adopted.
I remember a lecture about foster care that I went to once. Two late teens/early-twenty something kids spoke. They had entered the system in early elementary school. They had never re-unified with their bio-families and were never adopted.
“Did you want to be adopted?” one of the prospective foster parents asked.
I thought the kids would hesitate, maybe say “no.” Perhaps they were too attached to their bio-families to have room in their heart for another family. Thus the county decided it would be best for them to be in long-term foster care instead. Surely if they had wanted to be adopted, some family could have been found for these beautiful, intelligent, very young kids.
“Heck yeah, I wanted to be adopted,” the young man and woman both said without a pause. “But nobody wanted us.”
Nobody. . .
They were sweet kids. They weren’t in trouble. But because they aged out of foster care without any family, their chances of getting a college degree, a good job, a nice house, etc. just became infinitesimally lower.
I think of myself at 18. What if my intro to adulthood was to be dropped off at a homeless shelter with a suitcase? How good would I have done? How good would you have done?
There’s such a huge need for families for these kids, it can feel insurmountable. But here’s a small step you can take right now in honor of National Foster Care month to move these kids a little closer to forever family. Would you join me in my thunderclap for foster kids? Just follow the link below and click “support through Facebook” or “support through twitter” and then “authorize ap.”
This thunderclap talks about both my “Circling Orphans with Love 2015” campaign that encourages people to share waiting children’s public heart gallery bios through social media and promotes my new children’s book, What’s a Foster Family? *
The picture book is about a young boy named Alex whose family starts fostering. Alex’s an only child who’s used to having Mommy and Daddy all to himself. So when his parents start doing foster care and little Malik joins their home, Alex’s not so sure he’s happy about sharing. What’s a Foster Family? is a great way to introduce your 3-7 year old to the idea of foster care and help him or her have empathy for the foster children he’s sure to meet at school or neighborhood groups.
*Thunderclap is a spam-free ap that allows you to donate one pre-written Facebook status (or tweet) to a cause. All the statuses will be posted on April 28th for a thunderclap of support! I’ve used thunderclap hundreds of times and it has never spammed me.

Please help out Anne with this worthy cause.

Nancy Mehl, Interview


Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’ve been writing for sixteen years. I started out writing mainstream mystery. Then I went to cozy mystery and now I’m writing romantic suspense.

I grew up in Kansas, but my husband and I moved to Missouri about a year and a half ago so we could be near our son and his family. We have a grandson who is two years old, and we wanted to be involved in his life. We’re very happy here!

What do you do when you are not writing?

I don’t really have any hobbies although I used to do some embroidery and am determined to get back to it. Most of my time is spent writing, reading, and spending time with my family. I do enjoy television at night when my working day is over.

When did you first start writing and when did…
