2 Time Christy Award Finalist /Lifetime Achievement Award-Winner

Melody Carlson Complete Selection

Honored with Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, bestselling author Melody Carlson has been writing (professionally) for more than twenty years, with more than 200 books published and more than five million books sold. She attributes her success to her changing environment whether it’s staying in her beach cottage or enjoying her home near the Cascade Mountains; she reflects on the diverse scenery and easily gathers plenty of writing ideas. In addition to the two writing retreats Melody and her husband take RV ever exploring the country and area for new story ideas and they enjoy skiing, hiking, gardening, camping and biking.

Favorite Verse: John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

It’s the “whosoever” part that gets me. That’s who I write for – “whosoever” and to me that means everyone and anyone.

But she makes up her mind to face the music--and that's where the fun really begins.

When she gets home to Chicago, she finds her mother is healing but will need a lot of time to recover. Worse, without being able to run their family-owned salon, her mother could lose the business. Determined to help, Rita realizes what the struggling salon really needs is a complete make-over.

Rita is determined to get the salon back to its former glory by Valentine's Day, which happens to coincide with the reopening of the nearby skating rink that she loved as a child.

But she also has the help of old friends, including Johnny, a former classmate who now works for Jolly Janitors, the company that cleans the salon. Rita is surprised at how well they connect and how much he is willing to do to help her. Though Rita believes Johnny is only being kind, with romance in the air their friendship may just fall into something more.
