Guest Blog: Jodi Thomas and Betting the Rainbow

It's that time again, time for another Harmony, Texas novel from Jodi Thomas.  You have heard me gush in the past about how much I love this series so I cannot wait to get my hands on my copy of Betting the Rainbow (hopefully today) and review it for you later this week.  Until then, let Jodi tell you a little about it and make sure you pre-order it because you know it will be great!

No fooling, my next book will be out April 1, 2014.  I had such fun writing this book in the Harmony series and hope everyone will love it as much as I do.

Of course, you’ll have the usual characters walking through Harmony.  Martha Q Patterson, Tyler Wright and his Kate, Alex Matheson and her husband Hank.  You’ll also have a character coming home.  For all of you who love Ronny Logan, you’ll be happy to know her story isn’t over.
This novel plays out three great love stories on a small lake a few miles from Harmony, Texas.

One true love shines between a couple who met in high school and their building story has walked through several books.  This time Reagan and Noah are old enough to know their mind, but can love find them after they’ve grown apart?  She’s become a successful business woman and he’s a big time rodeo star.  Two people with such different lives have to figure out what is truly important.

Ronny Logan comes home looking for peace after dealing with the loss of her first love.  Thanks to the mysterious man next door, she discovers what passion is all about.  Only does passion equal a forever love?

Dusti Delaney’s  farm on the small lake off Rainbow Lane makes the third house.  She and her sister had to give up on their dreams when their mother fell ill, but Dusti is determined to try one more time.  If she can beat out a hundred cowboys in a charity poker game and get to Vegas, all she has to do is place in the money and her sister can go back to finish school.  Only problem is, she has to learn to play the game in two weeks and the only man who is good enough to teach her has flown in from Ireland to win.

In the mixed-up game of life not everything turns out as planned.  We can’t control all the ups and down or the good and bad things that come our way.  But just like poker, you’ve got to play the cards your dealt.

Take a chance on BETTING THE RAINBOW!
