by Author Beth Troy

Modern Faith series #2

What happens after salvation—when you’ve changed but others don’t see it? 

Author Beth Troy addresses this question from the first page, which finds Lu Sokolowski—the engaging and relatable heroine from Troy’s redemptive debut novel, 'Lu'—back in her hometown with her expectations of a new life dashed.

Lu has returned to Dunlap’s Creek with a hope to stay, but she struggles to right the wrongs she left behind, build a career outside of writing, and move on from the man who has moved on from her.

'Louisa' is a modern faith story of life after salvation that openly explores:

• The disconnect between who we are and how others perceive us;

• The struggle in speaking up for our beliefs;

• The question of when to let go and when to fight; and

• The journey in claiming a new identity.

In turns, captivating and pointed, 'Louisa' is a novel of a woman coming into the fullness of life God has for her. It’s for women who have experienced this for themselves and for women who doubt whether such a life exists. It’s for women who understand that a life of faith isn’t without struggle or mistakes. Louisa is about restoration—in its grit and glory.

The Secret Sisters Club JustRead Blog Tour 
Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for The Secret Sisters Club by Monique Bucheger, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!



The Secret Sisters Club TitleThe Secret Sisters Club
Series:  Ginnie West Adventure #1
Author:  Monique Bucheger
Publisher:  True West Publishing 
Release Date:  March 18, 2020
Genre:  Middle-Grade Contemporary Fiction

Twelve-year-old BFF's Ginnie and Tillie, want to be sisters. Tillie's divorced mom plus Ginnie's widowed dad could equal a lifetime of round-the-clock girl talk and slumber parties. Too bad Dad vowed to never marry again. Ginnie and Tillie form a secret club. They come up with the perfect mission to change his mind: 'Operation Secret Sisters'.

Before long, Tillie seems happier about gaining a dad than a sister. Ginnie suspects that Tillie has turned 'Operation Secret Sisters' into a scam called 'Operation Steal My Dad.' Things get more complicated when Ginnie stumbles across her real mom's hidden journals. Ginnie can finally get to know the mother she doesn't remember and Dad doesn't talk about.

When Dad discovers she has the journals, he takes them away. Ginnie needs to figure out what the big mystery is before her relationship with her father and her best friend are ruined forever.



This is a scene between Tillie and her mom--that tells what Tillie REALLY wants:

Matilda Grace, I know you don’t like people to fuss over you, but it’s your birthday. I want to celebrate you with your friends.”


Tillie groaned. “Mom, I don’t want a big party. Just take Ginnie and me shopping. Please? That’s good enough.”


She shook her head. “What twelve year-old doesn’t want a real party?”


The kind of twelve-year-old who likes being invisible so people don’t ask you questions you don’t want to answer. Tillie smiled. “Mom, it’s my birthday. I like being with the Four Musketeers. I think that would be fun.”


I want you to marry Ginnie’s dad–that’s what I really wish for my birthday, Ginnie and I have talked about being sisters a million times. That’s what I want … to be sisters, only for real.

Trick or Thief: A Humorous Culinary Cozy Mystery Short Read (Death by Cupcake) by D.E. Haggerty


About Trick or Thief


Cozy Mystery 6th in Series 
Independently Published Digital - 120 pages  
ASIN: B0878QF5V9 


A little haunting sounds like innocent fun until a ghost plunders your stockroom.

Kristie is convinced ghosts don’t exist until food starts disappearing without a trace from the Youth Center storage. There are zero clues as to who’s been inside the building. The security guard hasn’t seen a thing, and the security tapes are mysteriously blank. When the ghost widens his hocus-pocus to include Kristie’s office, the gals of Callie’s Cakes jump in to find the culprit before Kristie can get in a whole mess of spooky trouble.
Will the gals of Callie’s Cakes expose the ghost before Kristie’s facility is destroyed?

Cupcakes not included, although recipes for all the delicious cupcakes Anna bakes are.


About D.E. Haggerty


D.E. Haggerty is actually just plain old Dena, but she thinks using initials makes her sound sophisticated and maybe even grown up. She was born and raised in the U.S. but considers herself a Dutchie and not only because it sounds way cooler. After a stint in the U.S. Army, she escaped the US to join her husband in Holland. She fled Holland over ten years ago when she couldn’t stand the idea of being a lawyer for one single second more. Turns out Bed & Breakfast owner in Germany didn’t do it for her either. When the hubby got a job in Istanbul, she jumped ship and decided to give this whole writer thing a go. She’s now back in Holland, which she considers home. Sorry, Mom.
