If you're enjoying this gorgous picture of Paradise, Pennsylvania, you can thank talented photographer Gene Cook. The more I look at this shot, the more I could look at this shot!
I'm sure you'll recognize the town's name as soon as I remind you this is where those horrific Amish schoolgirl shootings took place several years ago. Amazing, isn't it, that even something that evil and ugly wasn't able to mar the magnificent vistas.
You can learn even more about this quaint little town in my next release, Love Finds You in Paradise, Pennsylvania. Set in and around Paradise, the novel features one fictional Amish family as very important secondary characters.
But imagine traveling to quaint cities and towns all over the U.S. ... without ever having to leave the comfort of your easy chair! That's exactly what Summerside Press accomplishes with every Love Finds You title.You'll pay visits to the nearby Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania, where you'll interact with the real residents who call these twenty-some acres home. You'll enjoy a big country breakfast at the beautiful historical bed and breakfast situated on the property, and share a rib-sticking mid-day feast atthe Gunden's kitchen table. (And thanks to little Levi, you'll hear all about how pigs are slaughtered in the family's "killing room"!)
But don't be fooled by the peaceful and serene artwork on the novel's cover... A troubled teen commits a deadly crime that has a hideous and lasting affect on every character in the story.
Though Simon and Julia aren't related to the Gundens, their love for the Plain family is as deep and as real as any forged by blood. When the brutal and atrocious murder steals one of the Gunden's children, the couple's new love is put the the ultimate test. Wolf howls and human tears will mix to test your compassion.
Love Finds You in Paradise, Pennsylvania is available online now, and will be delivered to bookstores near you this April. If you can't find it where you shop, be sure to let me know, and I'll do what I can to see to it the title shows up, soon!
