Amazon best-selling author Cathy Bryant writes Christian fiction set in the heart of Texas. Her popular romance and romantic suspense novels take place in the fictional town of Miller's Creek, where folks are friendly, the iced tea is sweet, and Mama Beth's front porch beckons. Her debut novel, TEXAS ROADS, was a 2009 ACFW Genesis finalist and has been on the Amazon Best-Seller list. Since then four other stand-alone novels have been added to the series, one of which was a reader-nominated 2013 Grace Award nominee (PILGRIMAGE OF PROMISE). Readers have compared her work to that of Karen Kingsbury and Nicholas Sparks.
A native Texan, Cathy currently resides in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains of northern New Mexico with her minister husband of over thirty years. She's written devotions for The Upper Room devotional magazine, two devotional books, and for online sites. She also recently released her first Bible study booklet, THE FRAGRANCE OF CRUSHED VIOLETS. In addition to her writing, she enjoys thrift store shopping and romping in the great outdoors. To learn more about Cathy and her books, visit her website at www.CatBryant.com.

My review for The Fragrance of Crushed Violets
As a young mother and wife of a naval aviator in sunny Pensacola, Florida, Liv Tulley eagerly anticipates the first Christmas in several years with her husband, daughter, and extended family. Then her husband is unexpectedly deployed for an undetermined amount of time, smashing her white Christmas dreams. She's also shouldering a secret and battling anxiety. Can she find God's peace in the midst of life's pieces?
I thought this story was a delightful; to teach a child about the stories of the bible. While Liv was teaching her daughter, she learned some lessons herself.
Did you ever watch those after school specials? This story would have made a great candidate for one of those wholesome movies. They were often fun to watch, while learning valuable life lessons.
The only gripe I have is a mistake in the book.
At the end of chapter 15, the story is actually repeated. It's weird, but you realize it's probably an honest oversight, and move on.
It was a lovely story about a family worth knowing. I loved how it played out, and especially thought the ending was the best. I love when all prayers are answered and all they're all happy. Makes me feel warm. With an accompanying Christmas theme, the plot was a wonderful treat.
Both print and ecopies have since been corrected on Amazon, and the little glitch in Chapter 15 is no more!
