And Thank You, Readers, for joining me in this celebration! I’m serving up chocolate cake with fudge frosting, and ice cream with all the trimmings. And no, the cake and ice cream are not calorie-free. Callie Beaumont, my heroine in CAPTURING BEAUTY, insists that my readers have the good stuff, after all, she does tell Haven Carlysle, my hero, that “True love is eating ice cream together.” Wouldn’t you agree?

Capturing BeautyAbout CAPTURING BEAUTY ~

He’s a nature photographer returning to make amends. She’s a camera-shy naturalist seeking privacy. Their love for a boy brings them together, but the camera could drive them apart.

Photographer Haven Carlysle is a changed man. Six years earlier, he had run from his tragedy-filled life in Duluth. Now he’s back in town to capture the North Shore’s beauty … and to recapture the love of his son. But that means making amends with his ex-girlfriend too. When camera-leery Callie Beaumont steps in to bridge the relationship between Haven and his former family, he’s wary, but she’s his only hope.

Callie Beaumont is surrounded by beauty. Her parents are local news celebrities. Her sister is a model. And Callie is … Ordinary. All her life, Callie has longed to work outdoors soaking up God-breathed beauty, and the opportunity is finally on the horizon. But being the liaison between the handsome photographer and his son has thrown her dreams, and her heart, into chaos.

Can Haven capture her heart when she won’t let him capture her image? And will his poor choices cost Callie her dream job and him the love of his son?

  1. Thank you for offering this delightful giveaway!!! A good old-fashioned hot fudge sundae with thick rich hot fudge, walnut syrup, whipped cream, and a cherry on top is my favorite ice cream treat!

  2. My favorite ice cream (or gelato, in this case) treat is Italian Affogato – a small scoop of vanilla gelato with 1 or 2 (I prefer 2) shots of espresso poured over the top.

  3. Affagato al caffe – I personally drizzle caramel sauce on mine after the espresso is poured. And I do make a fine lime rum ice cream along with many other flavors.

    Fantastic giveaway BTW that has me yearning and a bit of drooling for the truffles.

    Thanks & HVD to all!

    1. Coffee- and espresso-flavored ice cream seems to be very popular. πŸ™‚ And those Lindt truffles? I’m always drooling for them!

      Thank you for dropping by the celebration, Amber! And Happy Valentine’s Day to you, too!


    1. Post

      Yep, I completely agree that all ice cream is great. πŸ™‚ That’s the second mention of death by chocolate–will definitely be giving that one a try!

      Thank you for joining in the party, Martha!

  5. I love hot fudge sundaes! I also like mint chocolate chip. I am looking forward to reading your new book. I have read others and had to sign up to find out about more. Thanks for doing what you do so well.

  6. Hot fudge – with or without the ice cream! LOL!! If you’re ever in Brooklyn, NY, go to Ample Hills Creamery. It has the most amazing ice cream ever! For Super Bowl fans, they always have “team flavors.” This year, for the Patriots, it was Boston Cream Pie Ice Cream, and for the Falcons, it was Brown-Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream with Pecan Pie bits. Oh. My. Goodness!! I’ve only been once, and I want to go again!

    1. LOL! Yes, with or without the ice cream, I agree!

      I’ll have to keep the Ample Hills Creamery in mind. Hubby and I may be going to NY for our 30th Anniversary, so it would be fun to stop at non-touristy spots. I wonder what they’d do for the Minnesota Vikings should a miracle occur and they make the Super Bowl …

      Thank you, Regina, for celebrating with me!

  7. My favorite ice cream treat is a Butterfinger blizzard. I love eating those. In the fall, I like the pumpkin flavored ice creams and blizzards.

    1. You can never go wrong with a question about ice cream, right?! A mix of chocolate & vanilla sounds perfectly delicious. πŸ™‚ And vanilla fudge??? I would have loved to try that!

      Thank you for joining the celebration, Annie! πŸ™‚

  8. I love Maple nut and Mint Chocolate Chip My mom and I were great fans of Ice cream and I think of her every time I eat one of her favorites!

  9. I love Hot Fudge Banana Parfaits!
    I also love the beautiful writings of my favorite Minnesota Christian Author and friend!
    Can’t wait to read this new book!

    1. Hi Tory – I looked up the Cookie Casanova and drooled! Everything I love all in on sundae! When I visit Branson in March, we might have to make a little detour to Andy’s …

      Thanks for celebrating with me!

  10. I love a hot fudge sundae with peanuts. I also love malted milk ice cream because it reminds me of special times with my grandfather. πŸ™‚ All this talk of ice cream is making me hungry! Congratulations on Capturing Beauty’s debut.

    1. Thank you, Michelle! I love it that ice cream reminds you of special times with your grandfather! (And the ice cream talk is making me want to use that Cold Stone Creamery gift card …)

      Thanks for sharing in the celebration!

  11. I love a flavor they have out that has cherry ice cream with real cherries an chunks of chocolate in it – so delicious

  12. My favorite is probably just a bowl full of ice cream, my favorite flavor is called White Chocolate Raspberry Yum. I also love vanilla ice cream with caramel or fresh strawberries over it. One neat packaged treat that I’ve enjoyed was an ice cream sandwich with soft M&M cookies as the outside part.

  13. My favorite would be homemade vanilla ice cream with my homemade chocolate sauce! Either that or the chocolate frozen custard at Sydney’s in Grand Marais. It’s the best chocolate frozen custard around!

    1. I’m surprised you’re the first person to mention homemade ice cream! And topped with homemade chocolate sauce? Sounds yummy!

      If I’m ever in Grand Marais, I’ll have to check out Sydney’s. Looks like a place with a ton of character, along with being right by the lake.

      Thank you for celebrating with me, Kristine!
