ReRelease of Hope's Path - Carrie Carr

After twenty years with a publisher, I've gotten the rights back to my books. I plan on releasing the via Amazon Kindle and KindleUnlimited, so that I can get them out to people who can't afford $9.99 per ebook. It's a long process, but I've released the first three books in the Somerville Series (featuring Lex & Amanda), and I plan on releasing all my books this way. After that, I've got a couple of books started, including a new Lex & Amanda.  --- Carrie

Book Three in the Somerville Series
(Featuring Lex & Amanda)

Available on Amazon Kindle for $2.99, and free with KindleUnlimited!

While they try to find whoever is responsible, Lex and Amanda must also navigate through the stress of hosting their families on their first holiday together.

Publication Announcement:

The RV Ranch

Ebook available at 

$7.99 and on Kindle Unlimited 

Physically and emotionally hurt during her last tour in Afghanistan, Joelle (Jo) McCallister returned home. When neither her military accolades nor the exploits of her new Bohemian lifestyle fill the void in her life, she takes to the road in her RV in search of purpose and meaning to her life. An early blizzard leaves her stranded in the middle of Wyoming, where she meets Kate Nolan. 

After her career dreams were crushed, Kate Nolan returned home to find her grandmother (Grams) ill, and her ranch falling apart. Her plans to rebuild go up in flames when a fire destroys the newly built cabins. Matters get worse when the bank manager shows up with default papers to repossess the property, and when bullets fly because outsiders with an interest in the ranch try to take it by force. When all seems lost, Jo asks Kate for the one thing that is most difficult for her to give, her trust. Jo calls her Army buddies to help solve the mysterious circumstances happening at the ranch.

Grams thinks Jo is the person who can restore Kate’s ability to trust again, and Kate the person who can heal Jo’s hurts and bring purpose to her life. Have the forces of nature conjured a plan to bring these women together to heal their wounds, save each other, and the ranch? Was Grams’ right about Kate and Jo? Or will the appearance of an ex-girlfriend and would be lovers ruin their chance for love?
