“Brush with Love” Blog Tour

Lisa McKendrick and Cedar Fort Publishing & Media are pleased to announce the “Brush with Love” blog tour, which will run from November 30-December 10 2017.

About the book:

Lana, a talented Ivy League artist, and Walt, a small-town farmer, couldn’t be more different. She arrives in Bluegill, Idaho, ready to spend the summer painting, excited to study under Walt’s grandpa, a brilliant but aging artist. The more she is thrown together with Walt though–and the more she spends time with him–the more she realizes her heart may be drawing up its own plans. As the weeks pass, Lana realizes she’ll have to choose between following her dreams or following her heart.

Excerpt:

“You have to get me his number!” she declared.
“I’m not your fairy godmother,” I said.
“Come on, Lana, it’s not like I’m asking you to turn a pumpkin into a carriage. Wait!” she cried. “That’s it!”
“That’s what?”
“The kind of wedding you want.”
Ugh. What was the use of your best friend spilling beer on a fairly handsome stranger if it didn’t make her forget your previous conversation? I scowled, telling her without words, Let’s not do this, and with a glare she shouted back, Oh, we’re doing this!
“Fine,” I said, throwing my hands up. “What kind of wedding do I want?”
“You want to be a Disney bride! Bejeweled ball gown, Cinderella’s carriage, and his and hers mouse ears for the cake topper!”
“Not even close,” I said.

Excerpts

“Camelot is ready. The operation is a go,” a voice crackled through the

transceiver in my ear. The mission was being initiated and a part of me was

annoyed. Only halfway through my fried chicken, I was still pretty hungry. I

hadn’t eaten since the night before, since the plane ride down that morning

served no breakfast. Given that I was going to meet with a drug kingpin in a

few minutes, the last thing I wanted was for my stomach to be growling.

I sat in the first floor food court of the Franklin Building, El Paso’s premier

commercial block and the headquarters of the global fast food chain Beef n’

Wings. It was just after noon and the area stirred with visitors eager for their

lunch. From my position I could see two other field agents, the only other two

in the building. Far off to my right, just outside the crowds and colorful

cacophony of restaurants, a hulking teenaged boy seemed to have the same

idea I had as he snacked on a beef hot dog from one of the stands. He wore

a blue hard hat, with matching blue overalls and heavy-looking harnesses

which clung to his body. At his side he loosely held a squeegee as well as

some napkins, presumably for his meal. After taking a big gulp, his lips began

to move. It was much too noisy in the food court to pick up any word he was

saying naturally, but on the transceiver I could hear him perfectly. Percival is

ready. Let’s get this over with.”
