Stranded on Sparrow Release Week Fun

Stranded on Sparrow by Rachel Skatvold: Release Week Party!

Stranded on Sparrow by Rachel Skatvold

If His eye is on the sparrow, where does that leave her?

Lia Diaz’s life has become an illusion. Fired from her perfect job, she’s living a lie to avoid censure from her critical family. So when Lia gets a call about her nana’s recent fall, she heads to Nana’s house to help out and regroup.

Things are looking up until she discovers that her childhood refuge, Nana’s home on Sparrow Island, has been condemned in the wake of Hurricane Arley. Time to regroup—again.

Getting stranded on Sparrow Island while visiting the house was not in those revised plans.

After “rescuing” his niece and a motley crew of animals, some might say Zachary Nolan has a hero complex. Zachary never thought that he would live life as a single dad. However, as a web designer he is able to spend lots of time with Violet, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. A call for help when Lia gets stranded there sends him rushing to the rescue. That hero complex thing again.

A hero and his niece offer new hope to Lia—maybe God’s eye is on Sparrow Island after all.

Read the next Sparrow Island novel in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

Party Fun:

Today we’re talking dates. Unconventional dates.

The question we were asked is: What is your perfect unconventional date?

I have the perfect answer for this one. Perfect for us, anyway. My husband and I have fairly similar tastes when it comes to dates. We like simple. Dinner and a movie used to be our favorite thing. We both like food and we enjoy movies. Win-win, right?

Then again, we have different tastes when it comes to movies and it was rare that there was a movie in the theater that we were both REALLY excited to go see.

So we changed things up.

We now do book/card shopping and dinner.

Notice how we kept the dinner part…Hey, we like our food.

Our new date idea is an all-day thing since we have to drive 2 hours each way to our favorite shopping places. What’s this? A man who enjoys shopping?

When it comes to the cards he collects, yes.

And he doesn’t mind following me around the book store for two hours because I’m willing to return the favor while he’s at the card store.
