Saturday Spotlight - Karen Cogen

It's that time again....time for another Saturday Spotlight!
This week's guest is Karen Cogan and her book, Love Never Lies.
Karen Cogan has a background in elementary education and has written children’s books, (one of which recently won the Moonbeam Award for best multicultural story), as well as many articles and stories. She has novels published in the writes inspirational, contemporary and historical romance genres. Karen lives in the Southwest, where she enjoys the opportunity for outdoor activities with her husband, children, and enough assorted pets to fill a small zoo.

Julie had trust issues from a previous romance. Therefore, when she met the new church counselor, romance was the last thing on her mind. Yet, something about him captivated her. He was gentle and fun loving, patient, and had a good sense of humor. And, he was a widower with a young daughter who tugged at Julie’s maternal instincts. He seemed to be a good father and a devoted believer. In spite of herself, Julie was falling in love. She never imagined that a crisis would arise and that all the traits she loved might drive a wedge between them. Could he be trusted or would he break her heart?

Excerpt: “Mr. Riley, I don’t think you’ve met my sister-in-law, Julie Price. Can you believe she teaches four-year-olds every Sunday even though she’s single and doesn’t have any kids of her own?”

Julie fought the urge to elbow Gina for her un-requested offering of information. Yet, as the counselor engulfed her hand in his warm grip, she had to fight the urge to like him.

She didn’t want to like him. She didn’t even want to talk to him. And yet, when he released her hand, she felt an odd twinge of disappointment.

Love Never Lies is available now from White Rose Publishing.

That's all folks....join me next week when Amber Leigh Williams returns!

Until later....take care, BE BLESSED and remember...when the going gets tough, the tough get on their knees.
