Each week we're visiting the characters from my newest release, "Awakening Avery," and designing a give-away around that character.
This week, meet lovable "rodeo-ers turned real estate moguls" Teddie and Rider Davis. On first glance, this bigger-then-life, nouveau-riche Texas duo intimidates floundering author Avery Elkins Thompson. But after a few minutes in Teddie's tender company, Avery discovers that the Davis's shoveled, struggled and rode their way to success, scratching to keep their little family together and fed along the way.
Their pockets seem lined with gold, but their real wealth is their character and experience. Despite hardship, they've maintained a childlike hope about life. They have a few lessons to teach Avery about not just surviving, but thriving through the angst of life, and in return, Avery discovers that she can add something of even greater value to their already good lives.
One of my favorite chapters in the entire book centers around an awkward breakfast scene where Teddie and Rider serve carryout quesadillas from the Cheesecake Factory. In honor of that scene, this week's prize is winner's choice--a personalized copy of "Awakening Avery" or a $25 gift certificate to the Cheesecake Factory.
