Look Who Dropped by Today: Christy Newton

Christy has been a guest on a previous occasion. Today, she’s here as part of her first blog tour  for her new novel, Trust Again, part of the Love Again Collection,which will be released 2-2-14 just in time for Valentine’s Day! This is the second book in the series, which started with Begin Again, released last August. I have had the  privilege  of reading both books and recommend them. They are wonderful, feel-good romances with a HEA that’ll leave you feeling great. I encourage you to read them. 

 Good morning, Christy. 

Tell us about Trust Again.

 Once broken, can the heart really trust again?

 Dreams of escaping her small town brought Ellie Oliver to New York only to find that life there wasn’t all she’d hoped. Seven years later, she is returning to Pleasant Valley, Indiana with new hopes and secrets. She wants nothing more than to fade into the slow pace of small town life and forget about the demons of her past.

 Jacob Jones is at loose ends. At twenty-six, a man shouldn’t be starting his life over from scratch. Finding himself out of work, Jacob looks for a new home in Pleasant Valley. He is ready for the single life just enjoying the company of close friends. All that changes when he takes a job remodeling the town’s toy shop and comes head to head with its new owner. Ellie turns out to be sweeter than the candy she sells in her store.

 Ellie and Jacob bring out feelings in each other neither were looking for, but both can’t deny. Can they truly trust again or will their shattered hearts refuse to mend?

Excerpt from Trust Again

Ellie nodded and clasped her hands together. “Want to help me fill the containers?”

“Depends.” Jacob eyed her for a second. “Do I get free samples?”

“Of course! Go wash your hands and you can have all the candy you want.” She got a box cutter and opened the first box marked jelly beans. Her favorite.

While Jacob was sanitizing his hands, Ellie opened box after box of sweets. He walked back into the room with eyes wide. “That’s a lot of candy.”

“I know, isn’t it pretty!” She scooped a large amount of colorful gum drops and poured them into the bin.

He grabbed a piece of red licorice and ate it in two bites. Ellie filled another bin with fruity lollipops while Jacob helped himself to a chocolate turtle.

As he reached for a piece of saltwater taffy, she put up her hand. “Hey, you have to help, then you can eat.”

About mhsusannematthews

Finally retired after more than 30 years as a teacher! Now, I get to spend my time gardening, enjoying my grandchildren, and writing. I finally completed the number one item in my bucket list and Crimson Romance published my first novel, Fire Angel, in April 2013. Since then I have sold 24 other manuscripts to date and don't plan to quit writing for a long time yet.
