EXCERPT


“How was your date?” Levi plopped down in a chair on the opposite side of the table.
Daniel’s gut tightened. “What date?”
“You and Blythe. I saw you two drive in last night. Kind of late, if you ask me.”
“It was barely ten o’clock. And it was not a date. She needed some hiking shoes, so I ran her into Ouray.”
“It took you four hours to pick out shoes?”
Actually, it was more like five, but how did Levi know that? “Look, I know you’re fishin’, Levi, but I ain’t biting.”
“Fine, go ahead and deny it, but I know you have feelings for her.” His smug grin grated on Daniel.
“And how would you know that?”
“Uh, because I’ve known you since kindergarten.” He twisted his Camp Sneffels ball cap backward. “You don’t go crazy for the chicks. But the way you look at Blythe…that’s the kind of stuff you’d find in one of them romance novels.”
“Oh, so you’ve taken up reading?” Daniel may have appeared calm, but inside he was tap-dancing around landmines.
“No, but my mom has, like, hundreds of those things lying around her house.”
“Maybe you should borrow one. Might help you get a date instead of spying on other people.”
“Hey, I wasn’t spying.” His friend looked almost indignant. “I just happened to be outside, that’s all. And why are you treating me like the enemy? I think it’d be great if you and Blythe got together.”
Yeah, if the future of Camp Sneffels didn’t rest in her hands.
Grabbing his now-empty coffee cup, Daniel stood just as Blythe walked inside, her tablet tucked under her arm. And for some reason, Daniel couldn’t help but stare. Her hair was down for once, the soft waves skimming her shoulders. And the slight smile that played at her lips when she saw him tangled his insides like a bowl full of spaghetti.
A strong hand clapped against his shoulder, interrupting his reverie.
“Well, lookie there,” said Levi. “It appears you’re not the only one who’s mastered that smitten look.” He gave Daniel a final squeeze. “Have fun. I’m off to inspect the zip line.”

EXCERPT


This wasn’t the first time he’d forced her to take a good, hard look at herself or her ideas. Much the way her father used to. Only one of the many reasons she adored her dad. Hugh Brennan had always believed in her.
             
She surreptitiously watched the man beside her. Jude believed in her, too.
             
The realization sent an unexpected wave of awareness shivering through her. But she quickly shook it off. Jude was her friend. And she was pregnant with another man’s child. Meaning any and all romantic notions were off-limits. For the sake of her baby, she couldn’t afford to make another mistake.

INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR MINDY OBENHAUS

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I was born and raised in Michigan, but now live on a ranch in Texas with my husband, the youngest of my five children, two dogs, numerous cattle and deer, along with the occasional coyote, wild hog, mountain lion and snake. Yet despite those latter characters, rural life is a pleasant change from the suburbs of Dallas-Ft. Worth. If only there was a Hobby Lobby nearby. 😉

What do you do besides writing?
I love to cook, watch countless hours of The Food Network and Hallmark Channel, shop and play with my grandbabies.
Do you have images you can share that come close to how you picture your characters? Do you like to find visual inspiration for your characters before or during your writing process?

Yes, I’m a very visual person, so I need that visual inspiration as I’m writing. Most times I have a “prototype” in mind, but sometimes it’s not until I’m writing and get a better feel for the character that I have a particular person in mind. 

 
What are some songs that you listened to or inspired you while writing your book?
While I love music, I prefer to write in silence. Probably because I’m too easily distracted. I do find inspiration in songs, though. Some books actually have a theme song, unfortunately that wasn’t the case for Her Colorado Cowboy.
What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book?

I want them to know that we serve a God of second chances. Even when we say NEVER, God has a plan. It may not be what we envisioned, but it‘s always better than anything we could have come up with on our own.

What can we look forward to coming from you in the future?

Book four in my Rocky Mountain Heroes series, Reunited in the Rockies, is scheduled to release in September, with the fifth, and final, book on shelves early next year.
