Recently I read The Charm Bracelet by Susan Page Davis. This is a small ebook and it's well worth your time reading it. Susan is an author of over 40 books and a good friend of mine. We live about 15 miles apart. She has been a great encouragement to me in my writing.

Susan had told me about the book one day when she, Sandra Robbins, and I were brain-storming. It sounded very interesting, and we encouraged her to write it. She sent me the copy of the cover and we tweaked it a little, but there wasn't much to do. This is one book I couldn't put down. It's very easy to read and the story is a true romance. So, if you want something to read on a cold winter day, I suggest The Charm Bracelet. Here's the blurb and picture of the cover. Read to the bottom of the page, I have something more to tell all of you.

When Lisa Archer’s charm bracelet is caught in a mall escalator, she is rescued by a flippant but dashing EMT. Steve Rollins seems to understand only too well Lisa’s mixed feelings toward her escort, Dr. Bryan Cooper, who gave her the bracelet. 

When Lisa and Steve meet again, the sparks fly. Steve is sure Lisa hates him, and Lisa can’t help comparing vibrant Steve to mediocre Bryan, although Steve makes her furious every time she sees him. She tells Bryan she no longer wants to wear the charm bracelet, angering Bryan, and both are injured in an auto accident. When Steve responds to the emergency call and finds that Lisa is one of the accident victims, his guilt weighs him down. 

Will he have the chance to ask Lisa’s forgiveness and start over in his clumsy attempts to win her heart? With a lot of prayer and some manipulation from Steve’s sister, he may be able to charm his way into Lisa’s life. 

This romantic novel has elements of Christian faith. The e-book also includes a bonus short story, “Wandering Irises,” by Susan Page Davis.

Tomorrow I enter the hospital to have a long, serious procedure. I'll be honest, I'm not looking forward to it, but it has to be done. It's not cancer, but the correction of a problem that I've had for nine years when a doctor messed up during surgery. My present doctor said it should have been done two years ago when I had hernia surgery, but we didn't do it. This time it is necessary. Keep checking back. As soon as I'm up to it, I'll be back writing. One thing I want to do is get rid of some books I have. I want to make a list and put them out on this blog. The only thing I'll ask for is shipping and handling. Is anyone interested?
