Do You Like Perfect Women? Plus Giveaway...

Book cover small town nanny
They’re imperfect… but perfect for each other.

EDIT:  BRENDA W, YOU’RE A WINNER! Please contact me via FB or this site’s contact page to let me know your street address, and I will send along your autographed copies. 

Do you like perfect women? You know, the ones who bring those fancily decorated cupcakes to the first-grade party, are patient with all the little kids, and say exactly the right things to the teachers… all while wearing a size four outfit in the latest style?

Yeah, me either.

I’m not bragging about my attitude, mind you. Obviously, my discomfort has more to do with my own insecurities than with any, well, flaws in those intimidating, seemingly perfect people.

I have to admit, though, that I had a lot of fun writing Small-Town Nanny… that is, after I ditched the perfect heroine I kept trying to put into the book and found a perfectly-imperfect heroine to battle with Sam Hinton, the bossy, millionaire hero of the novel. 

Susan is a blurter. The very first scene of the novel has her getting fired for her direct, outspoken ways (even though she’s protecting a younger waitress from a groping jerk). She also manages to question Sam’s parenting skills–at her job interview–and to insult her young charge’s country-club grandparents..

Comment below for a chance to win these autographed copies. Check back after entries close June 12.

And how about housewifely skills? Susan doesn’t have ’em. I think you’ll enjoy reading about her disastrous effort to prepare dinner for one of Sam’s important clients, as well as the totally unimpressive picnic she prepares for a day at the lake. 

The good thing about Susan is that she’s aware of her faults. She’s quick to admit wrongdoing and apologize. And her friends know that beneath her impulsive exterior lies a heart that’s loving and caring, especially toward the special-needs kids she works with. 

But how does Sam, the appearance-conscious, conservative businessman, come to fall in love with such an imperfect heroine? For that, my friends, you’ll have to read the novel. And if you do, I hope you’ll let me know how you like it.

To get things started, I’m giving away a little bundle: autographed copies of the first two novels in the Rescue River series. I hope that’ll get you excited about reading Book 3, Small-Town Nanny. To be entered in the drawing, share YOUR views of perfect people, or perfect characters in books, in the comments below. Contest ends midnight, June 12th. Leave your email or check back so I can get a street address and mail the books to the winner. The more comments, the more winners… so don’t hesitate to click and share!

Oh my goodness! This sounds like such a great book! I have loved all of the Sacred Bond and Sacred Bond Guardian books and I know I would love these LI books of yours as well. Have a wonderful day!


I hope I win! Thank you for the opportunity!

I’m still waiting for a heroine with stretch marks and a muffin top and a handsome hero with a dad bod. I love the perfectly imperfect and have always loved Anne Shirley for just those reasons. So bring on the flawed heroine and we will bask in her glory.


have not read any of your books a new author to me !
