Welcome to the 2016 Turkey Trot Blog Hop

Thanksgiving is about more than a big family feast featuring a perfectly roasted turkey. It is an opportunity for each of us to reflect on those things for which we are grateful. I am grateful for my family, friends and the freedoms we enjoy in this great nation.

Today I will be featuring my latest novella in the Eastern Sierra Brides 1884 series, Bridgeport Holiday Brides. Here is the book description:

With the arrival of Beth Dodd’s sister, Hazel, in California, Beth and her fiancĂ©, Val Caldwell, are now able to make wedding plans.  Thanksgiving seems to be a good time to tie the knot and bring the Caldwell family together, as well, but when Val’s older half-brother, Edwin, and his family show up for the wedding, things fall apart. Edwin’s advice to Val to wrest control of Beth’s holdings and absorb them into the Caldwell Ranch leads to bad blood and fisticuffs between the brothers. Will Beth call the wedding off to protect what she’s worked so hard to gain?

As Beth’s younger sister, Hazel, realizes she’s falling in love with Val’s younger brother, Luther, she learns the feeling is mutual. Luther has bought a ring and plans to announce their engagement at Thanksgiving, as well. But Beth has a stormy relationship with her future brother-in-law, and believes her sister is too young to marry. Headstrong and determined to control their own destinies, will happiness also be possible for these BRIDGEPORT HOLIDAY BRIDES?
