 She can’t remember who she’s running from.
Is she safe with the Amish?

Someone wants Becca Troyer dead, but who or why is a mystery to her. Seeking refuge at the home of Amish farmer Zeke Hochstetler is her only hope to stay one step ahead of the killer. With every clue she finds about her past leading to more confusion, Becca and Zeke must untangle the truth before her pursuer discovers where she’s been hiding.

  1. Oh my goodness, I wish I could go on the Girlfriend Getaway with y'all!!

  2. Oh, Missy, I do too. Amish Country and fellow AUTHORS! It's almost worth learning to write Amish for.
    Thank you all for all your support yesterday. This is going to be a blast.
    Looks like a good week ahead.Melanie Dobson is a huge favorite of mine, I still love what she did with the "River" trilogy. I admire anyone who can do time-slip, maybe someday.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Your Kaybee

    1. Kathy, I'm so sorry I missed your release yesterday. I accidentally locked myself out of Seekerville by trying to so something from my phone. I just went and read your blog post. I'm so excited for your story.

      I'm also really excited to be hosting Melanie on Wednesday because Time Slip has been my favorite sub-genre from before it even had a name!

    2. KB, I read your post on Carrie's site late last night on my phone and then couldn't leave a comment for some reason. I stopped by again today and left you some hugs and love. So proud of you! Hope our paths cross in real time one of these days!

  3. I am SO looking forward to the Girlfriend Getaway, and I'm thrilled to have been asked to be one of the participating authors! I can't wait for next August!

    But meanwhile, my deadline is only eleven days away. Heading back into my writing cave. Have a great weekend, everyone!

    1. Jan, I'm looking forward to sharing the PA experience with you! We'll have a great weekend. I made my hotel reservations yesterday.

      For anyone interested, more info will be released in early OCT!

  4. Melanie Dobson! Woot! I'm thrilled she can be with us in Seekerville. I loved her HIDDEN AMONG THE STARS...Yes, a time slip! Just bought MEMORIES OF GLASS. It's sitting next to my bed on my TBR pile!

    Thanks, Cate, for hosting her!

  5. Hi all:

    I'm delighted to see I won a Winnie Griggs book. I think this may be my first win this year. I hope I can select a Thanksgiving theme book from Winnie's backlist as they are my favorite theme romances.

    I'm a bit confused, however, since Love Inspired has two books with the same title and with the same cover art but at two different prices and published at different times. I'm not even sure who all the authors are or who wrote which story. Quite interesting as I've never seen anything like this before. I think both these books are well worth check out.

    In any event, I'm very happy and hope a Thanksgiving book is available.
