Spring Fever Giveaway – Meet Lindsey Brackett!
(to enter giveaway, fill in Rafflecopter form below)
Today’s Spring Fever author is Lindsey Brackett. I’m in the middle of reading Lindsey’s debut novel, Still Waters, and am loving it! She’s a gifted author–I know you’re all going to want to rush out and purchase her book.
Cora Anne Halloway has a history degree and a plan: avoid her own past—despite being wait-listed for graduate school. Then her beloved grandmother requests—and her dispassionate mother insists—that she spend the summer at Still Waters, the family cottage on Edisto Beach, South Carolina.
Despite its picturesque setting, Still Waters haunts Cora Anne with loss. At Still Waters her grandfather died, her parents’ marriage disintegrated, and as a child, she caused a tragic drowning. But lingering among the oak canopies and gentle tides, this place also tempts her with forgiveness—especially since Nan hired Tennessee Watson to oversee cottage repairs. A local contractor, but dedicated to the island’s preservation from development, Tennessee offers her friendship and more, if she can move beyond her guilt.
When a family reunion reveals Nan’s failing health, Cora Anne discovers how far Tennessee will go to protect her—and Edisto—from more desolation. Will Cora Anne choose between a life driven by guilt, or one washed clean by the tides of grace?
Edisto Beach is our family place—My mother grew up spending summers there, I grew up spending summers there, and now my children experience it. For more about Edisto and its history visit ExploreEdisto.com.
I’m currently working on the next book and a novella for release later this year.
This is fun—Currently I’m a community “star” in Dancing with the Stars for Hope, our annual fundraiser for Circle of Hope, a domestic violence shelter. You can vote for my team, Plot Twist, at www.dancingwiththestarsforhope.com/vote –every $1 vote goes to charity and helps us win the People’s Choice award. My partner is my friend Jeremy and we’re using our theater backgrounds to create an epic number sure to please. The performance will be showcased on March 17!
