Reeling from professional failure, Andrew Harris needs a fresh start. When he moves back to Colorado to join a Denver law firm, he runs into Jamie, his childhood sweetheart. She is still the kind and faithful girl he remembers—not to mention beautiful and still single. With her by his side, Andrew is confident he can overcome the demons that he tries to keep hidden.

Jamie Carson is thrown off balance when Andy resurfaces in her life. Though her faith in God has remained solid, even through her mother’s long illness and after her death, Jamie battles loneliness. Andy fills her days, whispering significance to her heart. But his rejection of the faith she thought they’d once shared, and his alarming drinking habit keep her heart from plunging into deep, murky waters. Or do they?

Andy pursues an intimacy Jamie knows she must guard against. But as the line between loyalty and love blurs, things get complicated—until a devastating blow breaks their relationship. For Jamie, one thing becomes clear: Andy needs a miracle, and she isn’t it.

Can the hand of redemption reach past the legacy of addiction?

 

Even love did not remove the anger. Maybe she was looking for peace in the wrong place…

Left wounded by a marriage cut short, Suzanna Wilton leaves city life to take up residency in a tiny Nebraska town. Her introduction to her neighbor Paul Rustin is a disaster. Assuming he’s as underhanded as the other local cowboys she’s already met, Suzanna greets him with sharp hostility.

Though Paul is offended by Suzanna’s unfriendliness, he can’t stop thinking about her, which unsettles his peaceful life. A hard-fought friendship slowly kindles something romance, but just as Paul’s kindness begins to melt Suzanna’s frozen heart, a conflict regarding her land escalates in town. Even in the warmth of Paul’s love, resentment keeps a cold grip on her heart.

Will Suzanna ever find peace?

 

A single word can change a life…

Who am I?

Sarah Sharpe has grown up as a carpenter’s daughter, knowing only the rough and work-heavy world of her father’s blue-collar profession. Abandoned by her mother as a baby, she’s lived 21 years content to drive nails at her dad’s side. Following her father into the world of construction was a natural path, and she took it without a second thought, but a harsh comment about her “butch” appearance sends her on a search for identity.

Enter handsome and easy-going Jesse Chapman, the roofer she meets on her first foray into volunteer work for Homes For Hope. In every way, the quirky man is her opposite—confident, a people kind of guy, and most importantly, happy.  His likable qualities continue to draw her in—and for some reason he keeps coming back to her. But they can’t be more than friends; he’s made that crystal clear. Except for a handful of times… and the confusion is driving her crazy.

Sarah’s quest for self-definition becomes more tangled than she ever imagined, and she discovers that the journey will take her deeper than clothes and makeup. Filling the void in her heart becomes an obsession she cannot escape. How far is she willing to go to discover who she really is?

The dark places in life have taught her this much—some things simply cannot be forgiven.

Cheryl Thompson learned over a decade ago to guard her shattered heart with a veil of cold indifference. Life since that day has been an endless cycle of detachment and loneliness, followed by superficial relationships. Break up, rinse, and repeat. Until something in her snaps. This life…she can’t do it anymore. She returns to her childhood home in the Colorado Rockies to help her Nana, only to discover a man capable of thawing her iced-over emotions—a man she knows she doesn’t deserve, so she pushes him away. But he keeps coming back.

Brock Kelly lived high as King of the Slopes in the world of snowboard cross racing. Medals. Money. Fame. But after a visit to an orphanage in Mexico, he gave up his adrenaline-packed lifestyle to follow a calling from God he didn’t know he had—helping kids who’d been damaged emotionally. When his best friend’s baby sister returns to town, he recognizes the hollow look in her eyes and sees the pain beneath her icy armor. It seems God has issued new call on his life. One he is not prepared for.

Falling in love with a woman who keeps secrets is dangerous all on its own. But when Cheryl finally tells Brock what she’s never told anyone else…no wonder she is the way she is. It would take a miracle to heal that wound, and a love bigger than Brock had ever imagined to walk with her through the process.

“…an incredible story of God’s redemption and love that transforms not only the heroine, but everyone around her.” -Sydna Masse, President/Founder at Ramah International

“With Red Rose Bouquet, Jennifer’s adept handling of deep subjects has cemented her on my list of must-read authors. I can’t wait to see what she tackles next.” -Christina Coryell, Author of The Camdyn Series


“…exquisite; equally breathtaking and heartbreaking in intensity; a romance between two souls desperate to follow the path of the redeemed; while desperately afraid that the journey will destroy them. It’s a story of unconditional love, even when it hurts; it’s a story of forgiveness, waiting to be claimed, even by one who views her sin as unforgivable; it’s a testimony to a God who is relentless in His ability to bring beauty out of brokenness.” -Rebecca Maney, Goodreads Review

actually need help, even though I never admit it? Maybe this is the beginning of a beautiful story—a romance full of hope and second chances and love.

Maybe…

A secret Santa gift left on Kale Brennan’s front porch opens up a fresh view of her ordinary life, and perhaps of God. Maybe she does matter. Maybe God sees her—as does a new-to-town music teacher who has her seven-year-old daughter gushing and her own knees buckling with his killer smile. But as Kale embraces new possibilities, a staple in her life—a man who is kind and steady, not to mention necessary for her injured daughter’s recovery—also snatches her attention in an unexpected way. Will the one pursuing her with his secret gift and kind gestures be the one her heart longs for in the end?

    I’m so glad your mom told me on fb that you were an author – I had no idea! I am reading Blue Columbine now and LOVE IT!!! It’s one of those can’t-put-down-must-read books! I’m thrilled to see you using this wonderful gift for His glory! Love! Kim Neessen

    1. Kim! It’s so good to hear from you! Thank you so much for reading Blue Columbine. 🙂 I’m so honored that a woman I so greatly adore is now reading my book!

  2. Just finished Blue Columbine; loved it so much I came searching for more of your books! I hope to see you put out additional work soon.

    1. Wow, thank you so much for reading and for telling me about it! Reclaimed is coming out in late September, so be watching for more news about that! Thanks again!!! You have blessed me. 🙂

  3. I bought Reclaimed the minute it was available on Amazon. Loved this book too! Loved Suzanne and Paul. Thank you for your stories. Your characters have a lot of depth and complexity. I will buy any book with your name on it.

  4. I have just finished reading both of your books (Blue Columbine and Reclaimed), both being the best Christian romance books I have read out of many. Can’t wait for more…hurry!

    1. Oh wow, Deb, thank you! I’m so glad you stopped by, and delighted that you enjoyed the books. The Carpenter’s Daughter releases in April…so it’s getting close! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Linda! I hope you found the books page on this website. There are links to the other two novels I have out currently. 🙂

  5. Jen, I just finished Blue Columbine, and loved it. Can’t wait to start on Reclaimed. The presence of our Lord and Father was so “active” the whole way through…I was praying along with the characters! An awe inspiring story of trust and caring that drew me into the cast, and left me wanting more. Thank you!

  7. I have read all five of your books in the last month or so. I loved them all! I was sad when I checked on Amazon that there isn’t a 6th book yet. Can’t wait to read what’s next. Hope the wait isn’t too long!

    1. Jen! Thank you so much for reading!!! 🙂 Right now, I am working on getting ready to launch my young adult trilogy, The Uncloaked. I’m really nervous about that! It’s very different from my Women’s Fiction work, so that should be interesting to see how it plays out. But, don’t lose heart, I’m hoping to have book three of the Grace Revealed series (Blue Columbine and Red Rose Bouquet) out late 2017.

      Thank you so much for this encouragement today. Gives my heart a smile!

  8. Hi Jen,
    I was wondering if Uncloaked will be suitable reading for my 13year old? I have read all of your books except this one and was wondering if I should by in hardcopy (so my daughter and I can share) or just my regular kindle version if it is not suitable reading for her?
    thanks. Seyi

    1. Seyi, thanks for asking! That really depends on you. I let both my 15 and 13 y o girls read The Uncloaked, and they both liked it. The older daughter tends to be a legalist and will set aside anything that she believes she should not be into (she wouldn’t finish John Greene’s novels, and set aside Rainbow Rowels within five minutes). Her thoughts on The Uncloaked were that the dark parts made her stomach turn a bit, but they weren’t graphic, and it wasn’t because she felt what she was the story was glorifying or normalizing sin. It was that sin can just be really ugly, especially when it is allowed to go on unchecked. So, in this situation, with the Uncloaked, if you know any details about how some of the Jewish girls were treated by Nazi soldiers during WWII, that would give you an idea of what I mean when I say that some of it is dark. Again, not graphic, but implied. Does that help?

  9. Hi Jen,

    Yes it does help. I will give it a try with her and encourage her to speak to me if she doesn’t feel like it’s for her or to come back to me with questions:)

    Thanks for getting back to me. I totally love all of your books.

  10. Hi Jen,

    I’ve just finished reading Blue Columbine in the middle of a few books, the next book on my list looked so sugary sweet that I came to find out what else you’d written. I just needed Andrew and Jamie’s story to sit with me a while before I started a new one…. and I wanted more of your work. Thank you, I found your story so believable, it didn’t feel rushed and unrealistic, you covered the journey with an authenticity I found refreshing. Jamie and Andrew live on in my head and heart so I’ll sit with them a while before I pick up the next book.

    I was excited to come and find that another book that lives on in my head and heart is also yours. The Carpenter’s Daughter is another favourite, so with the 2 books of yours that I’ve read being favourites I’ll be selecting another of yours for the list soon. Thank you so much for all you do for us!

    Katharyn
