Sure, it's romantic, up amidst the snow-capped peaks of Wyoming's Grand Teton Mountains, but Hanna Alexander has only one thing on her mind: trying to save the family lodge. That is, until she hires mountain guide Micah Gallagher to help raise revenues---and loses her heart in the process! Will this mysterious man return her love? 272 pages, softcover from Howard.
When mountain guide Micah Gallagher is hired by the spirited Hanna Alexander to help raise revenues for her failing family lodge, a high-country adventure filled with love, intrigue, and romance ensues. Almost immediately, Hanna betrays her own professional reservations and finds herself enamored by the mystery of Micah's carefully guarded past. When the two unexpectedly fall in love, Micah is forced to face the hidden places that haunt him, and Hanna must address her fears and determine if forgiveness can make way for love. Teeming with suspicion and intrigue, this Grand Teton adventure leaves the reader struggling with the Christian response of forgiveness in the midst of emotional entanglements, fears of the heart, and the inevitable agony of love.
Has fate brought the two together, or will circumstances tear them apart? What are the secrets that Micah guards so closely? Will love and forgiveness conquer the entanglements of their past and make way for a future together?

Tell us a little about yourself. Besides than writing books, I'm a stay-at-home mom of three boys ages 5, 8 and 11. I did insist on a female dog, though. My husband claims he provides me with all my romantic material, but a good imagination helps too!
What was your motivation behind this project? I have a heart for women who've been wounded, whether by abuse, rape, adultery or something else. Mending Places tackles some of these topics head-on and deals with the aftermath of being hurt by someone else: How can I forgive this person? It's a story about forgiving the unforgivable.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers find that Mending Places is a book of hope. Forgiveness isn't about letting someone off the hook. It's about freeing yourself of the weight you're carrying. It's not always easy, and sometimes it's a long process, but I hope readers see that God can help them do it.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I'm an avid reader of Christian fiction, so I have a lot of favorite authors. For women's fiction I love Karen Kingsbury and Kristen Heitzman. For romantic suspense I pick up Dee Henderson or Colleen Coble. And when I need a laugh, I turn to Kristin Billerbeck.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Mending Places is a story that perked in my mind for a full year before I sat down to write it. I was afraid the topic was too intense, too edgy for the Christian market. But the story wouldn't let me go, so I gave in and wrote it.
