A Look At Genie Gabriel & 'Legacy Reborn' ( @GoddessFish #mystery )

Today we have author Genie Gabriel visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* I'm an optimist whose rose-colored glasses have bent frames and cracked lenses. When life kicks me in the teeth, I find miracles and lessons I refused to learn an easier way. In fact, I live with a small herd of miracles in the furry forms of dogs, who are constantly trying to teach me to forgive, to play more, and to love without limits. I write about people who find courage and integrity in the darkest times of their lives, who rescue stray dogs and kittens, who find a person they would willingly give their lives for, and who make their little corners of the world a better place. People have remarked my stories "aren't what they expected." With rose-colored glasses firmly in place, I take that as a compliment. I invite you to share a piece of my world in the pages of a book, and hope you find some surprises, some tears, some laughter, and always a happy ending.

What book are you going to tell us about today? Is it part of a series? If so, what's the order the books should be read in?
* Legacy Reborn. It's part of a series. Please see the info below.

A look into the story
~ Blurb ~
* An attorney devoted to social causes and a burned out women's advocate help save their home town while struggling not to fall in love. However, an unintended pregnancy and a gift from the heart lead them on a journey to new possibilities and love.
NOTE: All nine books in the Halo Legacy Series will be $0.99 the day of the tour!
~ Excerpt ~
* As the sun stretched its morning rays gently over the farm, Phoenix rose quietly and walked onto the newly constructed deck. Tears misted her eyes once again.
* "Do you like it?" CJ asked quietly.
* Phoenix turned to stare at the man standing several feet away from her. The man she was going to marry today.
* She couldn't speak, but simply nodded and held out her hand to him.
* CJ took her hand and led her to stand in front of the sliding glass doors that enclosed the deck, making it a cozy retreat with a fire burning in the outdoor fireplace.
* "You have blisters on your hands." Phoenix turned CJ's hands up and looked at the palms.
* "Love blisters."
* Phoenix laughed as she shook her head. "I'm sure I have some ointment I've used for the llamas that will help those."
* "I don't want to upset Romeo by using all his ointment."
* CJ and Phoenix laughed together, then lapsed into silence. After a moment, CJ asked, "Are you okay with getting married?"
* Slowly, Phoenix nodded. "I still can't quite believe something so beautiful has come into my life. Then all the old fears and doubts start crowding into my head. But my 'sisters' helped me see love is a gift we should treasure and not a regret we passed up."
* Turning his palms up, Phoenix kissed the blisters on CJ's hands. One by one.

I'm also an optimist and I agree with you about miracles and lessons. I'm always telling my husband to look on the bright side.

So good to see you again, Andra!

Hi, "Ingeborg"! I've found it interesting that people seem to have a default setting as an optimist or pessimist. I do have some gloomy times, but tire of that very quickly and look for the positive. Yet I see others who see doom and gloom no matter the circumstances. One of those mysteries I've yet to figure out. LOL!

CONGRATULATIONS to all and many, many thanks to all the hosts, the commenters and everyone else who helped my Super Book Blast a very special day!
