Michelle Major is kicking off a new a book giveaway

Today we are excited to have Michelle Major here to chat with us. We've done spotlight features on her Magnolia Sisters series, and now she has a new series (Carolina Girls), starting with Wildflower Season. Thanks to Kaye Publicity, we have one copy to give away!

USA Today bestselling author Michelle Major loves stories of new beginnings, second chances and always a happily ever after. An avid hiker and avoider of housework, she lives in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains with her husband, two teenagers and a menagerie of spoiled fur babies.

She always followed the path of least resistance…until it leads her to a small town where she can follow her dreams.

When Emma Cantrell’s marriage imploded, she learned a fast and painful lesson about trusting her heart. Then, on a visit to Magnolia, North Carolina, to see her brother, an elegant, if dilapidated, mansion for sale presents the opportunity to start over. Risking everything on her dream of opening the Wildflower Inn, Emma buys the house…just as the storm of the century hits, severely damaging the structure. But a chance meeting with Holly, a bride-to-be in desperate need of a new venue, gives her hope…and the name of a contractor who’ll work fast and cheap, allowing Emma to repair the inn in time to host the wedding and save her investment.

A furniture builder who hasn’t picked up a tool in the five years since his wife died, Cameron Mitchell has no intention of agreeing to help this beautiful—and, he’d guess, entitled—woman insisting that he fix her inn. Until he learns that Emma was sent by Holly, the little sister of his late wife. Grudgingly, Cameron agrees to do the work, with one condition: that he be left completely alone. But the more time they spend together, the more Emma touches a part of his heart he was sure died long ago, forcing him to try making peace with his past. (Courtesy of Amazon.)

What is a favorite compliment you have received on your writing?
That readers can see parts of themselves in my characters and the stories get them through difficult times.

How is Emma similar to or different from you?
I think we are similar because we both left behind our families and some of the things expected of us to create a new home in the world. We're different because I figured out my life a lot quicker and without a horrible cheating ex-husband—a fact for which I'm grateful!

If Wildflower Season were made into a TV series, who would you cast in the lead roles?
Emma would be played by Alexandra Daddario from the Percy Jackson movies and Cam would be played by David Gandy. I do use real life people (mostly actors) as inspiration and you can see more on Pinterest.

What is the last movie you saw that you would recommend?
My hubby and I watched I Care A Lot on Netflix—it was odd and twisty and a great escape.

What is something you learned about yourself during the pandemic?
Having a schedule saves my sanity. When my normal one got blown up by all the changes, I created one in the new reality. It helped to ground me and keep me moving forward on goals.

What is your favorite thing about summertime?
Early, early morning for getting up and puttering in the yard and having a drink on the patio as the sun sets behind the mountain.

Thanks to Michelle for visiting with us and to Kaye Publicity for sharing her book with our readers.
