Historical Blog Hop

One of my publishers is hosting a historical blog hop this weekend and I’m diving into the fray. I like to write 20th Century historicals and I have one with Sweet Cravings Publishing, an arm of Secret Cravings. Check out the other blog posts here for a chance to win some prizes.


My story is called Carver’s Fall and it is set in the fall in the 1920s. It’s a mystery/romance and showcases my favorite holiday, Halloween. Here’s the blurb:

In 1924, Carver Fowler, a young man raised on his family’s farm in North Alabama, has long been in love with one of the girls who lives in town. Her name is Mallie Phillips. Mallie has always treated Carver as beneath her notice since in her opinion he’s nothing but a country yokel. The county’s fall festival is soon and, as a joke, Mallie is dared by a friend to ask Carver to be her date to the party. Mallie takes her up on the dare and visits Carver to invite him to accompany her to the festivities. In the midst of all the intrigue about whether Carver will be her date or not, a young man is killed and another is attacked. Carver becomes a suspect and Mallie begins to understand that Carver may not merely be the backwoods boy she thought he was.


In honor of the hop, I’m giving away an e-copy of the story. There’s a Model-T in this story. Leave me a comment telling me your favorite antique or collectible car. I also have a Carver’s Fall t-shirt up for grabs! Winners will be drawn on Monday, the 29th.


  1. Good Morning,
    This story has me hooked. Is there something different about Carver?

    • Thanks Morgan. Mallie learns a lot about Carver as she gets to know him.

  2. Sounds great must buy this book….

    • Thanks Tabs! Hope you like it if you read it.

  3. Sounds interesting. My favorite car-’57 Chevy Bel Aire

  4. Wow! A historical romance set in the 20s! Cool~

    I’m not really a car person but I like the look of the Mini Cooper.

    Thank you for the great giveaway!

  5. Collectible car would be the car my dad drove before he died. An Austin Cambridge, cracked leather seats and all (able to use a pair of mums tights as the fan belt) hugs manda

    • Sounds like an awesome car, Manda. And I love the tights as fan belt!

  6. This sounds like a complex and interesting story.

  7. I already bought this book. It’s on my TBR pile and I can’t wait to get at it after reading this blurb!! My favorite car is probably the original Corvette two-seater. Now that’s a sexy car!

    • Thanks for the support, Jean. And yeah, that corvette is sex in a car, for sure! Great choice.

  8. Sounds like a good story. I like the 1920’s – not often found in romance.
    BTW – my email is For some reason I have to use my old email with wordpress.

    • Thanks Jeanine. I have two 1920s era stories. I love it.

  9. This book sounds awesome! My car would be a ’62 Rambler – Brian owned one when we started dating.

    • Thanks Tricia!! AND I love a Rambler. My folks had one when I was a kid and we camped in that thing a lot. the seats laid down and made a cool bed.

  10. This sounds like a really good romantic suspense with a little mind changing going on.My favorite antique car would be a ’65 mustang. They were fast and stylish. Boys liked them because they were girl magnets, but I liked mine because it attracted the boys… really fun to drive.

    • Shirley, I love that you had a 65 mustang. That’s super! And thanks for saying that the story sounds good. It was a fun one to write
