Newspaper reporter Lydia is investigating the deadly sniper terrorizing her town. She hopes to find some information to help the police track down this killer. Detective Steve Mason is doing all he can to stop the murderous gunman from striking again. Meanwhile, members of Lydia’s prayer group are facing life-changing problems. Elderly George Taylor, diagnosed with terminal cancer, decides to secretly leave lasting memorials. Teenager Jim Hunt is granted the wisdom to turn away from the temptations of peer pressure and alcohol. And for Lydia, who refuses to despair in the ugly side of life that her reporting often uncovers, there is true love to bring laughter and joy to all her days.

Read an Excerpt

Lydia sought Detective Steve Mason out at the Above and Beyond Police Fund-raiser for injured officers to apologize for the headline her boss had used in the newspaper that day. As they were sitting at a table with another couple, the other woman, Marcie, asked, “Steve, why don’t you bring Lydia with you to the barbecue in two weeks?” She’d noticed how they seemed interested in each other.

Steve looked at Lydia. “Would you like to go?”

“It sounds like fun.”

“We’ll see you then,” Marcie said as she and her husband stood up to leave.

“So, Steve,” Lydia said, “what do you do when you’re not working?”

He gave a derisive laugh. “It seems all I do is work.”

“Do you have a family?” She’d noticed he wasn’t wearing a wedding ring, but that didn’t mean he was single.

“I’m not married,” he answered. “What about you?”

“I’m single, too.” Lydia was amazed by how anxious she’d been to hear his answer. “What do you do for fun?”

“When I do manage to get time off, I like to ride my Harley.”

“That’s awesome.”

“You like motorcycles?”

“Oh, yeah.”

“I’ll take you for a ride sometime.”

“You’re on.”

“What do you like to do?”

“I read a lot.”

“We’ve got to liven you up a bit.” He paused and looked around. His tone was conspiratorial when he asked, “You want to do something wild and crazy?”

“You aren’t going to get me arrested, are you?”

“Now, there’s a thought.” He slanted her a knowing, almost wicked grin before saying, “No, I wasn’t going to get you arrested. I was going to ask you to dance.”

  1. The story line was not what I was expecting given the cover.

  2. Good Morning! I hope everyone enjoys Miracles.

  3. Hi Bobbi! What sets this book apart from your other ones??

    1. A lot. :) This is contemporary. That was a big change for me after writing all my historical romances, and it has a faith-based feel to the story that I had only done once before in Haven. It was fun writing something different and having heroes ride Harleys instead of horses. :) Let me know what you think. best, bobbi

  4. Very pretty cover. The blurb sounds good. Thanks for the chance.

  5. One of the most beautiful covers I've seen this year
