I recently sold a 12 book series to Pelican Book Group. The flowers of the year. So over the next three weeks I will show you the amazing covers that Nicola Martinez, graphic artist and editor in chief of Pelican Books made for the series. The whole series is planned for release in 2015
Violets in February
Carnations in January
Grace Chadwick receives a surprise inheritance from her aunt—a house and a florist shop. Not knowing the first thing about flowers, she moves in after the funeral. She sees this as the new start she needs.
Elliott Wallac lives next door. He does the neighborly thing and calls in with a casserole, only to find the house next door has problems. Damp walls and a sagging floor set his builders senses on alert.
When a huge storm drops a tree on the house, it reveals a rotten foundation. Can Elliot rebuild the house and Grace’s shattered faith, or are both condemned?
Violets in February
When uptight missionary, Lucy Boyd is injured her only ride to the hospital 200 miles away is the scary looking guy who delivers their supplies every two weeks. Not only is he scary, he's obviously quite heathen based on the heavy metal music blasting from his truck when he pulls into the compound, the earring in his ear, and his salty language.
Jed Gorman doesn't like people, especially Christians. Shuttled from foster home to foster home after the death of his parents, he's had enough "Christian Charity" to last a lifetime. The last thing he needs is that uptight missionary woman as a passenger. But when he sees that her knee is the size of a football he can't say no. It's going to be a rough ride, his truck is old, the monsoon season has hit and there are guerrillas in the jungle...
Daffodils in March
Only given a week’s notice in her current job, Eden Jameson is desperately looking for something new. Being a nanny for her best friend and sister in law, Hanna, is the ideal solution to both their problems.
David Painter has other ideas. Having a stranger in the house could ruin everything he’s worked so long to achieve. He needs to get rid of this nanny and fast.
When Hanna dies unexpectedly, the reading of the will is a shock—Eden and David have been left joint custody of the baby and joint ownership of the house. Can they overcome their differences or is it too late?
Sweet Peas in April
Adam West, a high powered lawyer gets the shock of his life when he arrives to meet a new client— she’s the wife he hasn’t seen since they separated when he left her ten years ago.
