Love Starts With Elle by Rachel Hauck

is introducing

Love Starts With Elle

(Thomas Nelson - July 8, 2008)


Rachel Hauck is a forty-something, a child of the '60's, '70's, '80's, '90's and '00's, who roller skated through the '70's into the '80's with Farrah Fawcet hair and a three-speed orange Camero. She graduated from Ohio State University (Go Buckeyes!) with a degree in Journalism.

After graduation, she hired on at Harris Publishing as a software trainer, determined to see the world. But, she's traveled to Ireland, Spain, Venezuela, Mexico, Australia, Canada and the U.S. from California to Maine.

Rachel met Tony, her husband, in '87, at church, of all places. They married in '92. They don't have any children of their own, just lots of kids-in-the-Lord and they love them all. However, they do have two very spoiled dogs, and a very demanding cat.

With a little help from my friends, my first book was published in ' 04, Lambert's Pride, a romance novel. My current release is Sweet Caroline from Thomas Nelson. Romantic Times Book Club gave both books their highest rank of 4.5 stars, with Love Starts With Elle being honored as Top Pick!


Elle's living the dream-but is it her dream or his?

Elle loves life in Beaufort, South Carolina-lazy summer days on the sand bar, coastal bonfires, and dinners with friends sharing a lifetime of memories. And she's found her niche as the owner of a successful art gallery too. Life is good.

Then the dynamic pastor of her small town church sweeps her off her feet. She's never known a man like Jeremiah-one who breathes in confidence and exhales all doubt. When he proposes in the setting sunlight, Elle hands him her heart on a silver platter.

But Jeremiah's just accepted a large pastorate in a different state. If she's serious about their relationship, Elle will take "the call," too, leaving behind the people and place she loves so dearly. Elle's friendship with her new tenant, widower Heath McCord, and his young daughter make things even more complicated.

Is love transferable across the miles? And can you take it with you when you go?

Amy here: I've just begun reading and am glad to be back in Beaufort, South Carolina! Elle is a great character and I'm enjoying meeting new folks in Beaufort and revisiting some old friends.

This may sound weird, but I hopped over from the CAN loop to welcome you to CAN. I saw you are a homeschool mom (I'm a 20-year homeschool veteran). Have you ever heard of Homeschoolblogger? That's where I hang out. You can get there by going to my (boring) blogspot blog and clicking a link (or two. or three). I have more than one blog over there. LOL
Anyway, welcome, welcome! And if you want to say "howdy" back, HSB is a better place to comment, as I never go to my blogspot blog. It's only there so I can do what I am doing write now. Commenting on Blogspot. :-)
