In Love with Audio Books

The June audio book promo is ending soon on Suzanne Whitfield Vince’s Blog, In love, all things are possible, at http://suzannevince.com/audiobooks/.  A number of my books are available in audio book including Marked in Mexico, Shrouded in Secrets, and A Dose of Danger. I had to pick just one to include in this exciting promo, so I chose A Dose of Danger since it’s my newest audio book and the first story in my Risky Research Series. The second novel in the series is A Taste of Tragedy, and I’ve recently signed a contract for the third novel, A Foundation of Fear. Anyway, back to the audio books. Here’s a little more on A Dose of Danger

When researcher Grace Talbot and her team discover a possible solution for weight loss they are targeted by a group dedicated to controlling the multi-billion-dollar a year diet product industry. Her unsanctioned testing methods bring tragedy to the family ranch and the attention of the local sheriff’s deputy. With her colleagues either dead, missing, or on the run she soon realizes she must trust the deputy with her life, but can she trust him with her heart?

Fabulous Final Four



Here’s the last of my blog posts featuring the fabulous final four of Gay N. Lewis’s Sarah series. I hope you found a respite from the madness in these delightful happily-ever-after tales of romance and mischief.

Available in eBook
A double wedding? Was it possible? 
The Superiors want Jessica and Robert to marry, but they throw in a twist--while seeing to their wedding, Sarah, Heaven’s Little Love Angel, must also find a mate for Bonnie, Jessica’s mom. Her orders are to bring about the two weddings simultaneously. 
Can Sarah pull it off? Or will her clumsiness destroy two romances in one shot?


Available in print. 
This book takes the two novellas, Date for Mackenzie and Family Affair and combines them. Again, these two books contain the same characters but they are both stand alone.





Available in eBook  
Sarah, the haphazard angel, returns to Texas. Her mission this time is to bring comfort to a young woman who is about to receive devastating news. Sarah brings comfort, gets caught in a freak snowstorm, and introduces Emily to a wealthy Texas cowboy. In this episode, Sarah gets the job done, but not without plenty of mishap that make the humans laugh as she bumbles her way through Texas.


Available in eBook on Amazon
Sarah is thrilled beyond words when she receives an assignment to return to Central Texas—the birth place of the first mission of love. On this trip, she is to find a companion for Tom’s mother, Allison. Will sweet Allison survive Sarah’s attempts at matchmaking? Can a widowed pastor’s wife find happiness again? Even though she’s more experienced now, Sarah continues to cause mishaps—and this time they aren’t all by accident! Allison is in for a ride of a lifetime.

Divine Treats

As promised, here are blurbs from four more of Gay N. Lewis’s Sarah series. I hope your enjoying these divine treats.

Available in eBook
Sarah is given a new mission—to link Robert Johnson and Brittany Lee—two people she encountered while trying to bring a couple together on that irksome computer Internet dating service. Oh sure, she’d done it. Not without trial and a lot of error, but with this fresh assignment, trouble would come…she was positive.

If she hadn’t grumbled about the computer, perhaps the Lieutenant wouldn’t have ordered her to ride the Galveston Ferris wheel. She’d seen the huge rotation device built over the Gulf of Mexico, and the very thought of a ride on that monster made her nauseous. 

What if she threw up on the humans? 

Oh merciful heavens! Why did the Superiors give such tasks to bumbling angels anyway?


Available in eBook
The Superiors left Sarah, “Heaven’s Little Love Angel,” on Earth to complete the third 
consecutive and interrelated mission. With simple instructions to find a mate for Galena Maddox and a dad for six-year-old Mandy, Sarah should have no problem, right? Well, except that dyslexic Sarah—known for bungles and goof-ups—creates more mayhem than she ever imagined possible. Pesky human disguises cause her trouble—again. In mortal form, she either injures people or embarrasses herself. Now the earthlings think she’s a fugitive from a mental hospital.

With Galena’s shady past, will Matt Austin, a minister, even consider her as a wife? And 
will Matt’s hoity-toity church accept Galena if Sarah successfully brings them together? Angels shouldn’t worry, but the task is daunting.

A wedding featuring the love interests from Sarah and the Internet Dating Service just 
might provide the magical atmosphere necessarily to bring Galena and Matt together.


Available in eBook and print
This book combines three into one story. Dating Service, Ferris Wheel, and Mandy all contain the same three couples.  Each novella in Three Times a Charm completes the story of the friends, but each one stands alone.


Available in eBook and print
Dyslexic and bumbling love angel, Sarah, comes to earth to unite Carolyn with a mate. Her orders from the Superiors specify she must make this happen while Carolyn cruises to Catalina Island. Sarah fears she’ll fall into the ocean and drown under the pull of her soggy wings. Facing a cruise might just be worse than facing a scary ferris wheel, but on this visit to earth, there’s more to fear than ocean waves... Talen is an evil spirit is assigned to thwart Sarah’s efforts by any means possible. The two destined lovers must not unite. Will Talen complete his task? Can Tomas, the Warrior Angel, successfully protect Sarah? Or will she goof up the battle between the holy and unholy spirits? Poopty doopty... Mayhem is bound to happen.


Available in eBook

Merciful heavens! Getting acquainted with adult teachers in a high school is one challenge, but hang with the kids too? Sarah, heaven’s little love angel who is known for bungles, has dealt with children and enjoyed them, but teenagers? My stars! They are a different ballgame. She doesn’t understand their jargon, clothes or hairdos. And mood swings? Forget it. She knew nothing about them—nada —zippo. She’d seen and heard them from above—even wondered at times why they existed on the same planet as adults. They were unique and interesting, but to mingle with them? Not a chance would she choose to do so—well, not until her latest assignment. Why would the Superiors send a bumbling angel like her to help a shy teenager find a date for a high school prom? Poopty doopty! A nightmare is about to happen.

Angelic Inspiration


There is one thing I imagine we can all agree on right now no matter what our political views are or what our religious, cultural, and other differences might be. There is too much sadness, tragedy, anger, and hate dominating our country and the news. I hope this is a temporary condition that will soon see a correction, but in the mean time we all need more smiles and pleasant escapes.
With this conclusion in mind I contacted a writer friend of mine, Gay N. Lewis, and asked her if I could showcase her Sarah series on my blog. The series is about a dyslexic Angel, Sarah, who gets into all sorts of amusing predicaments while playing matchmaker. She’ll stop at nothing in her attempts to bring romance into the lives of her charges.
I’ve read a number of books in the series and just downloaded, Sarah Does It Again, which I’m anxious to start reading. Gay’s books are feel-good stories without the tears, and you just can’t help but smile. I have to confess that I lost track of just how many novels in the series she’s written, so I’ve decided to make this a multi-part blog series where I’ll introduce four or five novels each post.
If, like me, you’re in the market for an uplifting adventure and could use a little angelic inspiration, pick up one of Gay’s Sarah novels and be prepared to smile. To buy on Amazon just click on any of the titles below.

Available in eBook, print, audio
Handsome, single, and wealthy, Houstonian Tom Shoemaker must decide if he should give up his successful business to assume a country pastorate. When a blonde, blue-eyed, dyslexic angel arrives from The Heavenlies to locate a mate for Tom by Valentine’s Day, she’s havoc in outlandish red stilettos. But despite numerous goofs in her efforts—many caused by her passion for eccentric footwear the other angels would never dare adorn—love is indeed in the air.

After Marcy Montgomery’s husband was killed in Afghanistan, she relocated to a small, central Texas town with Hope, her five-year-old daughter. When Sarah accidentally introduces Tom to Marcy, she sets about discovering if the two would make suitable mates. The Superiors certainly wouldn’t approve of a romantic link between the wrong people. But Hope wants a father, and when the five-year-old meets Tom, she immediately decides he is the perfect candidate.

Is Tom the right one for Marcy? Or has Sarah made her biggest blunder of all? Oh merciful heavens! What’s an angel to do?

Available in eBook, print, audio
Beautiful, talented, and stubborn, architect Laney Taylor battles her attraction to the handsome and wealthy—but mulish—homebuilder, Cannon Carlson. After all, he is her employer, and business and pleasure don’t mix, do they? 

Sarah, a klutzy, perpetually direction-challenged angel who craves cheeseburgers and fancies red stilettos, is sent to Houston on assignment. She’s to bring these obstinate people together, but she faces major challenges, especially since Laney is threatened by a mysterious stalker who plans to kill her.

To protect Laney, the Commander of Heaven dispatches a second, more seasoned warrior angel, Tomas, to Earth with divine instructions to protect Laney. But will hit-or-miss Sarah get in his way? Can Sarah unite Cannon and Laney romantically together?

Oh merciful heavens! What will Sarah do this time?


Available in eBook, print, audio
Widow Beth Marsh is not only beautiful, but wealthy enough to buy a third-world country. When she enters the dating arena to find companionship, two men profess an interest in her…but is it Beth they want, or are they out to get her money?

Watching from the Heavenlies, the Superiors dispatch Heaven’s Little Love Angel to Houston during the Christmas holidays. Sarah’s mission is to help the lady determine which of her suitors is the genuine article. Is black-haired Bryan Wingate the real deal? Or is good-looking Charles Chadwick the more earnest suitor?

When Beth invites human-disguised Sarah to attend a wedding, the delighted angel looks forward to an opportunity to wear a beautiful formal gown, and maybe—at long last—red stilettos! But Sarah’s mission becomes deadly serious when she discovers Beth’s life is in danger. If Sarah fails in her mission, Tomas, the Warrior Angel, will intercede. Determined to keep her human charge safe from gold diggers and save Tomas the trouble, the little love angel steps up her efforts.

But Sarah wouldn’t be Sarah without a few bungles along the way...


Available in eBook

For her next mission to earth, The Superiors assign Sarah a challenging assignment. She is to spur a romantic relationship between Karen Newton and Jeremy Spencer…through the Internet! The dyslexic angel has managed to unite couples previously, but computers perplex her. Since the couple knows each other through their work at a Houston oil company, why must she use those irksome gadgets to trigger a romance? After all, she is known in The Heavenlies as “Little Miss Goof Up.” But an order is an order…

When Karen faces danger, Sarah must send a believable email message to Jeremy. But how? She’s already created multiple fiascoes with her Internet attempts. Perhaps she should ignore orders and find other means to alert Jeremy. Poopty doopty—it would mean a reprimand on Cloud Five. Should she risk it?

Uh-oh. Do angels get headaches? It looks as though Sarah is headed for one.

Meteorological Start to Summer


The Summer Solstice is the meteorological start to summer, and it’s the longest day of the year. As a sun-lover this is something I appreciate very much. So, get out and enjoy, and if you’re at the North Pole on this day the sun does not set at all.

Pollinator Week June 19-25

According to the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service about 35 percent of the world’s food crops rely on animal pollinators like bees, butterflies, birds, bats, and beetles and other insects to reproduce. Without these animal pollinators our food supply would be in jeopardy. National Pollinator Week runs from June 19-25. If you want to learn more about pollinators visit http://pollinator.org/pollinatorweek/ or https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/main/national/plantsanimals/pollinate/
