Book Giveaway: High Desert Haven by Lynette Bonner

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. A winner has been emailed! Congrats!

Today on the blog, I’m welcoming Lynnette Bonner. Though a busy mom of four and pastor’s wife, Lynnette somehow finds the time to write, self-publish, and promote her inspirational fiction novels. Actually, we’re going to give you a chance to win one of her books right here! But before we do, let me introduce you.

About Lynnette, in her own words: “I was born and raised in Malawi, Africa, and spent the first years of my life reveling in warm equatorial sunshine and the late evening duets of cicadas and hyenas. The year I turned eight, I was off to Rift Valley Academy, a boarding school in Kenya, where I spent many joy-filled years. I graduated in 1990.

That fall, I traded for a new duet—one of traffic and rain—when I moved to Kirkland, Washington, to attend Northwest University. It was there that I met my husband Marty. A few years later we moved to the small town of Pierce, Idaho.

During the time we lived in Idaho, I enjoyed studying the history of our little town. That’s what inspired me to begin the Shepherd’s Heart Series with my first book, Rocky Mountain Oasis.

Over the years, God blessed us with four wonderful children. We currently live in Washington, where Marty pastors a church.”

You can connect with Lynnette at her website and her Facebook Author Page.

Now let’s talk about Lynnette’s most recent novel. What’s it about?

Oregon, 1887,
A day when outlaws ran free,
The land was wild,
Guns blazed at the drop of a hat,
And two people caught up in an uneasy alliance just might fall in love.

Is Jason Jordan really who he says he is? Everything in Nicki Trent’s life depends on the answer.

When her husband dies in a mysterious riding accident, Nicki Trent is left with a toddler and a rundown ranch. Determined to bring her ranch back from the brink of death, Nicki hires handsome Jason Jordan to help. Things seem to begin well. But then William, her neighbor, starts pressing for her hand in marriage, the bank calls in a loan she didn’t even know about, bullets start flying, and a burlap dummy with a knife in its chest shows up on her doorstep. Nicki wonders if this ranch is worth all the trouble.

To make matters worse, terrible things keep happening to her neighbors. When her friend’s homestead is burned to the ground and William lays the blame at Jason’s feet, Nicki wonders how well she knows her new ranch hand . . . and her own heart.

What the readers are saying:

“I really enjoyed this story about Nicki and Jason, their struggles, their triumphs and their desire to serve God.”

“This book kept me reading. I bought it and read it all in the same day.”

“Lynnette Bonner did an outstanding job describing the dry conditions of the California landscape. I could feel the heat, the dust, the misery. Move on to Oregon and the characters became my friends . . . or my enemies!”

“This is my first book by Lynnette Bonner and wow!–can this woman write!”
