An Unexpected Partnership 

Arriving in Texas, cowboy Jared Ivy discovers the grandfather he hardly remembers has passed away…and an unknown woman has claimed ownership of his family’s newspaper. Jared has the will that proves he’s the owner—but the sheriff refuses to enforce it. Instead, Jared must work with Mary Lou Ellison until a judge comes to town and rules in favor of the rightful heir.

Intrepid reporter Mary Lou has already lost her father figure. And she won’t lose the Pine Haven Record—the legacy he left her—without a fight. But when she and Jared stop sparring long enough to investigate a story together, they become a force to be reckoned with. Will they let their battle over the Record get in the way of something even more newsworthy: true love?

Fun Question for Angel…

I saw on Facebook that you recently checked out the new Hobby Lobby store near you. That must have been fun, especially since you enjoy making baby blankets. I find I frequent the same stores and realized they say a lot about me. If we were to run into a store you visit often, aside from grocery stores, which one(s) might that be and what would you be looking for there?

Angel says: “I’m a big TJ Maxx fan. You’ll find me in the clearance section first, then shoes, and then the aisle with all the cards and paper goods. I don’t shop often, but I love a deal. I like quality shoes, but I keep a tight rein on the money. I often tell people that I’m cheap, but frugal is probably more accurate. I also don’t buy things I won’t use or don’t need. Not even for my grands. I don’t like clutter or dusting, so I’m not a knickknack person. I admire them, but leave them in the store. I like to meander through all the aisles, except clothes. I don’t want to miss anything. On my way out, I might just pick up a piece of Godiva chocolate if they have it near the checkout. Now you have me wanting to go shopping!”

Your Turn…

Are you a shopper or a get-in-and-get-out-of-the-store-quickly type of person?

Which stores would we be most likely to find you in, and why?

    Tj Maxx is fun!

  • Marsha Bernabe says:

    I’m not much of a shopper, I work in retail.

  • Melody says:

    I love, love, love, shopping! If I am short on funds I have to stay away from any stores and I can’t open my emails because I have a hard time saying no to cute stuff! You’ll find me at Ross, or Target or at the mall!! 🙂 OR online, that’s where I shop the most! I have to stay away from because I really don’t need any more shoes! Haha

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Melody, it’s so easy to find cute things, isn’t it? The ads are everywhere. And these days, they’re even targeted for us.

      My daughter has a shoe addiction. I’ve lost count of how many pairs she has.

  • Merry S. says:

    I am a get in and out quick type shopper. You would probably find me shopping at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Burlington Coat Factory. I also hit the dollar stores hard for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and decorations for Vacation Bible School.

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Merry, sounds like you’re a bargain hunter–and a generous person. I used to scour Dollar Tree for Sunday School supplies when I was teaching classes.

  • Abigail Mitchell says:

    Guess it kinda depends on what time it is, and where it is that I’m shopping, cause it can be a little of both with me. Since i just recently got married then we moved to a small town where they don’t have a Walmart so we do the majority of our shopping at a Foodlion, i find myself really missing Walmart, which i never imagined happening. Haha. So now when i go to Walmart i just wanna spend my time browsing. Crazy i know. Also if I’m in a Lifeway…I’ll probably be in there awhile, as well as a lot of other book or movie store. 😀

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Abigail, moving away from what you’re used to can be hard. So can going into a bookstore and trying to get out in a hurry. 🙂 I hope your adjustments to married life and your new town are going well.

  • jane naccarato says:

    I am a get in and get out type of shopper. I can and have spent hours in Barnes & Noble. You can never have to many books.

  • Brenda W says:

    I shop and compare. For groceries–prices, sodium content, ingredients that I can’t pronounce. And for other items I compare features, warranty, name brand. You would find me in Kroger, Walmart because they carry necessities. And junk stores because they are fun. lol

  • Angel Moore says:

    Thanks for sharing The Rightful Heir, Keli. It was such a fun story to write.

    I see a mixed bag of shopping styles here. I love a bookstore, too. And if we had Burlington nearby, I’d go there, too. I do love Hobby Lobby, I must confess.

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Angel, it’s my pleasure to shine the spotlight on you and your latest release.

      It’s fun to see who enjoys shopping, who doesn’t and where those who like to shop prefer to go.

  • I go shopping once a month with a friend. We always go into Ross. I have found some great bargains in there on clothing. It is really the only place I actually like to shop. Otherwise I’m a “get in and get out” kind of gal. I love Hobby Lobby, and I always hit up the yarn aisle 🙂

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Julie, shopping with a friend is fun, isn’t it? I can see why you, with your love of yarn crafts, consider the yarn aisle at Hobby Lobby a must.

      I was in Ross just yesterday. I got a metal bookshelf that is now sitting in the corner of our bedroom holding copies of each of my books proudly sitting in book stands. It’s fun to see those pretty covers nearby when I’m snuggled under my covers.

  • Dianna says:

    I’m a shopper if I have time and/or money to spend. If I’m in a hurry (or the kids are anxious to get home) then I can sometimes be a get-in-and-get-out-of-the-store-quickly type of person.

    The store where you would be most likely to find me in is TJ Maxx. I love the great deals!

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Dianna, shopping with young children can be a challenge, can’t it? I remember those days. Many trips into stores ended up being grab-it-and-go experiences.

      TJ Maxx is one of my favorite places to browse. There’s new merchandise regularly, and the prices are good.

  • Trixi says:

    I am with Angel in the fact that I am not a knick-knack person so I admire them by simply looking at them. I would also call myself frugal when it comes to shopping, I don’t like to buy what I don’t need & hate clutter too! I think we’d get along famously 🙂 I’m a get-in-and-out shopper (I hate shopping in the first place). The less time I spend in a store, the happier I am, lol!

    Our small town just opened a TJ Maxx this year but I’ve never even been in it…is that terrible or what?? I’ve only been in one years ago and didn’t really find anything or if I did, it was rather pricey. I, too, look for the clearance section in a store since I don’t often buy new clothes.I buy with the idea to replace whatever is in my closet. 🙂

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Trixi, I admire your contentment and how you don’t buy things you don’t need. I could take lessons from you. 🙂

      • Trixi says:

        You got me curious about TJ Maxx, maybe I need to peek in there next time I’m up that way just to see what they have. I could always use new church clothes…lol!

  • Lorraine Tilson says:

    I like to shop deals at “New to You” or second choice shops. I’m from Canada and visit TJ Maxx when travelling through US. We have found great deals there. The closest type of store in Canada is called Winners.

    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Lorraine, thrift stores can yield great bargains. We just got a new Goodwill store in town, and I had to check it out. Lots of nice things at reasonable prices.
