The Trail to You by Lindsay Detwiler Sale & Giveaway


Title: The Trail to You
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 16, 2019
Publisher: Hot Tree Publishing
Cover Designer: Claire Smith

On sale for half price!
An independent blonde seeking a fresh start.

Orphaned and unhappy, Ally Hunter makes a life-changing decision to move across the country to a small town that once felt like home. As she reinvents herself, she realizes there’s one part of the equation missing—love. However, a tragedy from the past makes her hesitate when it comes to giving up her heart.

A betrayed man looking for a sense of pride.

Abandoned by his first love and family, Ronan has one friend he can truly count on—his two-hundred-pound mastiff, Henry. When he returns home from service in the National Guard, though, he finds his entire life catapulted in a different direction with the disappearance of his beloved dog.

A loyal four-legged friend who will unexpectedly bring them together.

When Henry, Ronan’s brindle mastiff, finds himself far from home, Ronan sets out on a journey to bring him back. However, as the trail to Henry leads Ronan to Ridgewood, Virginia, and an interior designer with a big heart, he’ll realize some hardships lead to beautiful discoveries.

The Trail to You is a sweet stand-alone romantic novel.


On sale for half price!

A high school English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay's the English teacher cliché; she loves cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay's goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she's done her job.

Lindsay's hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

BUILDERS AND BLOCKERS OF LIFE: OVERCOMING OBSTACLES FOR A BETTER YOU BY RANDAL SMALLS Review

ABOUT THE BOOK (192 pages):
What Will It Look Like When Your Dreams Come True?
“You have the limitless expanse of your God-given imagination—a personal power tool to immediately start dismantling old barriers and begin framing new pictures of what you want so see in your future.”
—Randal Smalls
From “The Better Life Coach,” Randal Smalls, comes a collection of encouraging stories, useful ideas, and profound inspiration for making tomorrow better than today. Builders & Blockers of Life vividly illustrates how to loosen your grip from the weight of the world so you’re able to reach out and embrace the better life you were created to live.
Step-by-step, Randal takes you through the process of releasing those “blockers” of the past, allowing you to replace them with “builders”—habits and attitudes that will create a better future.
When you believe in yourself and ask God for help, anything can happen. It all begins with making peace with the past so we can enjoy the present and design a preferred future.
The better life you’ve dreamed of can become a reality.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

My Review:
This was an insightful book. The chapter that I learned the most from was Part 2: Background Check. How often do we try to change the future without changing our habits? It made sense to me to first see what lessons I learned and to change for the better. The four I's ( Indifference, Inheritance, Ignorance and Innocence) really made me think of my past in different ways. There are sections of questions to answer and there is also a lot of scripture in the book. I liked that the book tells you where in the Bible it was, so you can read the whole passage. I recommend this book to anyone that wants to change, but doesn't know where to start. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy from Bookfun.org. All opinions are my own

My Review:
What a fun way to have kids read about exploring! I enjoyed that the reader got to travel around the world and see all the different trees, but that all kids are the same. The book also includes great latin names for the trees so you can do more research if you wanted to. There is more information included about the trees in the back of the book as well. What a fun way to learn! I am giving this book a 5/5. All opinions are my own.
