#TuesdayBookBlog #Coverreveal SON OF A PREACHER MAN by Karen M. Cox (@karenmcox1932). Another winner!

Hi all:

I recently read a book by Karen M. Cox (check here my review of I Could Write a Book) and when Rosie Amber told me the author was looking for ARC readers for her new book, I had to join in. I’ve read the book and I’ll tell you more about it early in July (it’s worth waiting for, but my lips are sealed!) but here I bring you the cover reveal so you can make some room for it on your list.

Here I leave you in Karen’s safe hands:

Thank you so much for letting me visit with you and your readers today! I’m really excited about the upcoming summer release of Son of a Preacher Man. It’s a special book for me, an original story inspired by Pride and Prejudice, that was originally published as At the Edge of the Sea in 2013. For its five-year birthday, I’ve re-edited it, given back its original title, Son of a Preacher Man, and with the help of Shari Ryan, of Madhat Covers, and Joshua Hollis, who created the image, I’ve given it a new cover too.

Description:

“I forget that you’re a fella sometimes.”

“Gee, thanks.”

I never forgot that she was a girl. Not for one second…

  1. 1959. The long, hot Southern summer bakes the sleepy town of Orchard Hill. Billy Ray Davenport, an aspiring physician and only son of an indomitable traveling minister, is a young man with a plan that starts with working in a small-town doctor’s office before he begins medical school in the fall. Handsome, principled, and keenly observant, he arrives in town to lodge with the Millers, the local doctor’s family. He never bargained for Lizzie Quinlan—a complex, kindred spirit who is beautiful and compassionate, yet scorned by the townsfolk. Could a girl with a reputation be different than she seems? With her quirky wisdom and a spine of steel hidden beneath an effortless sensuality, Lizzie is about to change Billy Ray’s life—and his heart—forever.

A realistic look at first love, told by an idealistic young man, Son of a Preacher Man is a heartwarming coming of age tale set in a simpler time.

Author Bio:

Award-winning author, Karen M Cox, writes fiction brushed with history and romance. She specializes in 20th century Austenesque tales in small-town settings: 1932, Find Wonder in All Things, Undeceived, and I Could Write a Book. She has also dabbled in Regency tales: Her Frank Churchill story, “An Honest Man,” appears in the anthology, Dangerous to Know: Jane Austen’s Rakes and Gentlemen Rogues, and she has a short story in the upcoming collection, Rational Creatures.

Although born in Washington state, Karen has enough Southerner in her—due to family history and a long residence in Kentucky—to ask young people in her small town, “Do I know your mama?” with a straight face. She lives there with her husband, encourages her children (who, thankfully, aren’t too far away), and spoils her granddaughter.

Ooh, looks like another book to add to my TBR. Love the colors in the cover. And I see you changed the theme of your website Olga? 🙂

Thanks, Debby. I’ve been lucky to have read it already and I’ll share the review closer to the time of release (it’s great, but my lips are sealed!) I agree about the cover. It is gorgeous, I agree, and it fits the concept of the book very well. I haven’t actually changed the theme but I seem to have added my log (card) at the top, I’m not exactly sure how! Oh well, I’ll leave it here for a while. See if it brings me luck.

Lol. Yes, I noticed when I landed on your page this time I wasn’t taken directly to the post but a page with a few of your recent posts. Not sure if you know that? But it is fine, just commenting it looked different. 🙂 x

Thanks, Debby. I think I change the setting for reading to recent posts rather than a fixed page. I’ll probably change again in a while, but I thought people might get bored if they always end up on the same page. Have a great week.

I can’t wait for you tomread this one, Olga! Can’t eait to hear what you think. I loved it.

Thanks, Christina. I’ve read it already and I agree with you. I loved it too. Very atmospheric and really compelling characters, although I’ll share the review when it’s released to make sure people can get hold of it quickly. Thanks for the introduction to such group of talented writers. 🙂

Thanks, Sally. I’ll share the review later in the summer, as it is due for release in July. It is a pretty special book. Have a great Tuesday!

Thanks, Robbie. It was a while back and I still have some other books by writers I met through one of the story collections. I must try and catch up during my next holidays. Take care!
