Excerpt

“How long before you install the new cabinets?”

He turned on the ladder. His dark brown eyes captured her, engulfing her in an encompassing warmth. She melted under his heated gaze, which ran from the top of her head to the white socks on her feet. He lifted a brow at her attire, but he didn’t comment on her pink sweat suit.

“With the old cabinets out of the way, I need to knock down this wall and tear up the flooring. The electrical work is next on the agenda.” He climbed off the ladder, yanked off his gloves, and slid a hand through his thick, wavy hair.

“It might be awhile before we install the new cabinets. Right now, we’re simply working to remove the old stuff so we can start fresh.” He smiled, which didn’t hide the dark circles under his eyes or the fatigue in the slump of his shoulders.

“There’s no hurry. If you’re busy with something else, this can wait until your Dad and Mattie come home next week.”

“No, Dad doesn’t want her dealing with this mess.” Carter unbuckled his tool belt and placed it on a workbench. “I promised him I’d have it done.”

“Is Grant helping?” Amber stepped around several pieces of sheetrock and stray bits of wood, to the bottom of the stairs.

He walked to the backdoor. “Friday, his classes are over at noon.”

With his hand resting on the doorknob, he appeared anxious to leave. “I’m headed to lunch, and then I need to drop by the office for a while. Are you sure you’re okay here by yourself?”

Amber toyed with the idea of saying no. She missed the taste of his lips and the strength of his arms, but she nodded instead. “Yes, I’m fine.”

After opening the door, he paused. “I guess I’ll see you later.”

She waved and turned to head to her room, satisfied she’d at least gotten him to talk. Her leaden feet trudged up the steps. Unexcited, she contemplated her latest assignment from the family council. How could she achieve such an impossible task of convincing her great grandmother’s ghost to cross over?

Interview with Holly Hewson

HH: Tina, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Fallen Leaves. What can you tell us about this haunting romance?

TG: This is the second book in the Family Tree series. The first one “Summer Growth” showed Mattie Winston giving up her job as the keeper of the Winston family spirits. The family council of spirits discovered a new girl to take over the position and assigned Amber Harrison the task of solving an old family mystery.

Now, Amber is back with a new assignment. She has to convince her grandmother’s ghost to cross over. The task forces her to risk everything…her job, the man she loves, her life.

HH:  What do you like best about Amber and why will readers identify with her?

TG: Amber is struggling to find herself. She wants what we all want…to have people care and respect her for who she is. In Fallen Leaves, she is force to make decisions that not only affect her life but the lives of others.

HH:  What do you like best about Carter and why will readers love him?

TG: Carter wants to be there for his family and successfully run the family business. What he has to discover is that he has to decide where to draw the line. Sometimes, what is important to them may not be what’s important to him.

HH: How is this story different than your other works?

TG: This is more of a family saga. There are multiple people in this story and each has their story to tell. Mattie’s life didn’t stop at the end of Summer’s Growth. In Fallen Leaves, she faces new challenges too that need to be shared.

HH: What do you think readers will love about this story?

TG: I hope it’s the same thing I love about this story, the character.  Each one is trying their best to make the right decision and overcome the mistakes of their past.

HH: What else do you have come up for lucky readers?

TG: I’m working on writing the last book in the Executive Wives Club series – The Widow’s Dilemma. Then I plan to start working on the next book in the Family Tree series-Winter’s Wonders.

HH:  What is your writing schedule like?

TG: I try to write every day between one to two thousand words. Then once, I finish a book I spend a few weeks editing and rewriting the manuscript.

HH:  Where do you mostly draw inspiration for your writing?

TG: I can’t say exactly. I’ve gotten a few from other books, some from news articles, television programs, movies and life in general.

HH: What do you enjoy reading personally?

TG: I love romantic suspense and mysteries.

HH: Where can readers find you online?
