Welcome to ‘Perfect for the Preacher’ blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
Did you know that the writing world is small in some ways? A perfect example is my couple degrees of separation from Megan Besing (whose first published novella is in The Mail-Order Brides Collection. I met Megan a few years ago at an ACFW conference in Dallas through one of my critique partners (who happens to be Megan’s proud mama). See, small world.
Megan’s novella in this collection was one of my favorites. You can find out why here.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Megan Besing adores reading, writing, and reviewing stories with happily-ever-afters. She’s received many awards, including being a multi-category finalist in ACFW’s Genesis and a winner of MCRW’s Melody of Love contest.

She lives in Indiana with her husband and their children, where she dreams of the beach and drinks way too many Vanilla Cokes.
Sophie touched the back of her hair. Her braids remained obedient. “Morning.”
Dusty brushed against her skirt and then sat in between them like a guard dog. Except his tail swooshed, and he panted happily. He’d have to work on his threatening demeanor.
“I was wondering…since…I mean…” Amos bent over and scratched Dusty behind his ears. “You look nice today.”
Was he talking to the dog or her?
“Not that you didn’t look nice yesterday. Because you did. Look nice that is. Both yesterday. And today.” He rocked on the balls of his feet and stole a glance at her.
Was it good that her fiancé was nervous around her? She pressed a hand to a flutter in her stomach. Apparently, the feelings were mutual.
On the road, the horse snorted, and the loaded wagon jilted forward a bit. Glass jars clanked together. Amos looked ready to run and grab ahold of the reins, whether from the movement of the horse, or from talking with her, she wasn’t sure.
“Would you like to join me on the milk deliveries?” Amos still eyed the wagon, as if asking it the question. It would be nice if he’d peek at her again. Eyes often told the truth of the heart before a person was brave enough to speak it.
