I'm so excited to share with you my new book cover for Perfectly Matched-book 3 in The Blue Willow Brides series. The model looks exactly how I envisioned Anna, the youngest of the three sisters, would look like. As usual, Revell creates beautiful covers and I'm glad to be able to share my ideas for what the cover should look like.

Here's a brief description:

Anna Olsen knows it's time to leave her sister's increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following her sisters' examples, she becomes a mail-order bride, and after a short correspondence with clock maker and jeweler Edward Parker, she moves to Denver to become his wife. Almost immediately it's painfully apparent that Anna and Edward are very different. Anna is a free spirit who would rather be painting and enjoying the company of friends than cleaning house. Edward is a consummate perfectionist who, on their wedding day, hands Anna a list of chores that need to be done around the house daily.

Can this mismatched couple see past their differences to a harmonious future? Or will their disparate passions create obstacles neither is willing to surmount?

Maggie Brendan closes her Blue Willow Brides series with a heartwarming tale of true love despite misunderstanding, showing readers that God's timing is always perfect.

It's available for  preorder on CBD, Amazon, B&N or your nearest Christian Book store.

I enjoyed writing Anna's story and all her escapes and I hope you will too. Closer to the release, I'll be having a giveaway.

I'm currently working on The Arrangement, my 1st novel in my new series, Virtues and Vices of the Old West.

I hope you'll sign up for my newsletter or follow my blog. Spring is just around the corner. Yay! Now back to writing. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I have loved reading the first two books of The Blue Willow series and am looking forward to the last one. When will this one be released?

It releases in October, but is usually on shelves by mid to late September. Thank you for reading my books and I'm so glad you enjoyed them. :)

I've love your Blue Willow series. I've read both so far and I would very much like to read the new one when it comes out.
