Carrie Turansky's "A Man To Trust"
Title: A Man To Trust
Publisher: It’s published by Love Inspired
Cover blurb: After years spent helping run her family’s Christian bookstore, it’s time for Adrie Chandler to give her own dream a chance. But can she trust the beloved shop to new manager Ross Peterson? The man is too handsome, too charming…too much a reminder of another dream Adrie had to let go of – marriage. Yet Ross surprises her by knowing a thing or two about making sacrifices. Suddenly, Adrie is questioning what she really wants. And whether the dreams she once thought unlikely are within reach after all.
1) How did this story come to you?
This story is the second in the Bayside Treasure Series. I wanted to tell Ross Peterson’s story. He was the best friend of the hero in the Seeking His Love. I also love music and thought the heroine’s dream of playing her flute professionally would be interesting to readers.
2) Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
A Man To Trust was contracted over a year ago as part of the series and it’s the third book I’ve written for Love Inspired.
3) Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
I have a pet rabbit named Mercy who is a very cuddly and an ideal pet. I lived in Hawaii for eight years after we were first married and learned to do praise Hula and make flower leis. I wrote my first book when I was twelve, titled Passport to Paris.
4) What are you working on now and what's next for you?
I just turned in my fourth Love Inspired novel, Snowflake Sweethearts. It comes out in late November 2012. I am working on some historical ideas now…just starting out with those.
5) Parting comments?
Thanks very much for this chance to connect with readers and friends!
