Paper Hearts {And a FREEBIE print for you!}

Years ago I met Courtney Walsh via the internet and we've texted and emailed and poured out hearts out to one another through moves and life changes during that time.  She is a precious woman and when she contacted me with a list of quotes and meaningful passages from her newest novel and asked me to create a custom watercolor for it's release, I jumped at the chance! So... I'm here today to share the new release of her novel, Paper Hearts.

About the book: Abigail Pressman would never have guessed that love notes penned on paper hearts by an anonymous couple could restore her belief in love. As a business owner in a quaint town at the base of the Rockies, she’s poured everything into dreams of expansion . . . and resisting the matchmaking efforts of the Valentine Volunteers, who gather in her store to continue Loves Park’s tradition of stamping mail with the city’s romantic postmark.

When Abigail is unwillingly drafted into the Volunteers, she encounters the paper hearts, a distraction that couldn’t come at a worse time. A hard-to-read doctor has become Abigail’s new landlord, and he’s threatening to end her lease to expand his practice.

As she fights a growing attraction to this handsome man crushing her dreams, Abigail is inspired to string the hearts in her store, sparking a citywide infatuation with the artsy trend. But when a new batch of hearts reaches the Volunteers, it appears something tragic has happened to the couple. Will uncovering their story confirm Abigail’s doubts about love, or could it rescue her dreams . . . and her heart?

Don't you love cozy-sounding books like this, that you can cuddle up with during the winter weekends?  You can get your copy here, here or here.

AND... that watercolor that I made so you can download & print out for FREE... can be found over on Courney's blog, here!  I loved the verse and when I saw it in her list of book-related quotes/verses, it was the one that grabbed me.  In thinking about relationships, it is always the promise that someone will never leave that makes all the difference.  We have all probably experienced loss of a loved one whether through death, divorce, or even relational issues and knowing that God Himself will never leave and will love us steadfastly gives us the ultimate hope to keep going.  It felt fitting as a Valentine's focus to remember that His love endures forever so I chose this verse from Courney's list and I hope you love it too!
