      How-to Tips for Aspiring Writers:

This is a hard business and it’s getting harder. Don’t be fooled by the lure of easy or fast. Putting out a bad book is worse than not putting one out at all. My main advice is to learn the craft. Dissect books you love to see how the author evokes emotions in the characters and in the reader. Study the pacing of the story. Where and how does it rush you along and where and how does it make you dwell in the moment. A new writer must embrace constructive criticism, too.. It’ a hard lesson but it’s a valuable one. Every story can be improved. Finally, never ever give up believing that you will achieve your dream.

Fannie Erb isn’t looking for a husband – especially if it means she has to leave behind her beloved horses to go find one. What she needs is a way to assure her parents that she’s not hopeless when it comes to love. And her family friend, Noah Bowman, might just be her solution.

A fake relationship would free them both from unwanted matchmaking plans, but how could Fannie predict that pretending to date the handsome boy next door would awaken genuine emotions? By summer’s end, they’ll be free to go their separate ways, but Fannie’s growing feelings are transforming her neighbor into the only man who might ever reign in her adventurous heart.

  1. The number one thing I like about this book is that it is by one of my favorite authors. I have read many books by Patricia Davids over the years and have gone as far as requesting them from the library to finish series of hers I've been reading. I haven't found a bad one in the batch!
