Season of Hope by Sara Jane Jacobs – Promo, Giveaway

When Amanda Jarvis prays that a special friend will move into the vacant house near her isolated mountain home, she isn’t upset when God sends a boy instead of a girl. But Amanda’s not the only one receiving unexpected answers to her prayers. After fleeing with his mother from an abusive father, Tyler Armstrong finds much-needed love and acceptance with Amanda’s family over the next ten years.

As high school graduation nears, Tyler is shocked when one carefree afternoon with Amanda churns up an inner turmoil he would have never imagined; he’s crushing on his best friend. And for the first time in his life he’s hiding a secret from Amanda. Convinced the timing is all wrong, Tyler pushes his feelings aside as he and Amanda prepare for the future. He will soon begin training to pursue his dream of becoming a Navy Seal, while Amanda makes plans to spend the summer in Manhattan with her aunt and then return home to the community college.

When Amanda’s summer job catapults her into a modeling career, she readily accepts the much-needed distraction. Tyler’s impending deployment is turning her world upside down. Along with the fact that she’s falling for her best friend. And, for the first time in her relationship with Tyler, she’s hiding a secret, too.

Phoebe Garrison, Amanda’s controlling aunt, is thrilled when she is given the power to act on behalf of her underage niece. Bored with her Fortune 500 advertising agency, becoming Amanda’s manager is just what she’s been looking for to rekindle her aspirations. But as Tyler becomes aware of Phoebe’s obsession to push Amanda into supermodel status, tensions rise. As the three of them become entangled in a mass of concealed ambition and desire, each will make decisions that will send ripples of turbulence across their futures.

Sarah Jane Jacobs – I began writing as a hobby while raising my two children. In 2015, I dusted off my stories and my dreams to see if I could turn my hobby into a career. My first story, Season of Hope, was inspired by summer vacations which always included a trip to Franklin, North Carolina, to visit family and explore The Smoky Mountains. When I’m not writing, I enjoy spending time with family and most anything that involves being outdoors, especially camping and hiking. I currently live along the Emerald Coast of Florida and never complain about the hot, humid summers, because that’s exactly how I like them!

  1. The cover of Season of Hope is beautiful, love the daffodils! I really like the blurb too, it’s a wonderful come on to read, a friends to possibly something more. I’m looking forward to reading this one just to see what happens! Thanks for a great review 🙂

    1. Hi Margaret! I’m so glad you like the cover. The cover artist chose daffodils because they are one of the first flowers of spring and they mean hope! I’m calling book two, Season of Deception. I’m wondering what kind of flower she will come up with for that! Haha, I’m glad you like the blurb, too. I’m about to write the blurb for book two in this series. I find blurb writing a challenge. I’m so glad you’re looking forward to reading it. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. I like the premise and look forward to seeing what decisions the three of them make and how it turns out.

  3. Hi Rhianona! I’m glad that you found the blurb intriguing! (blurbs are my big challenge) And I totally get the cup of tea thing! We all gravitate toward the stories that appeal to us! So many books, so little time, so we have to go for our cup of tea 🙂 I like that Amazon gives us a peek inside the books so we can give them a bit of a “test drive.” Thanks for commenting. I love getting the feedback!

  4. Lovely cover. Sounds like an enthralling read. Oddly enough, My son and I vacationed once in Franklin, North Carolina.
