Thanks to all who entered the Tea With Rosemary Consolation Contest!

The scavenger hunt phrase was "Can Cassie cook?"

Can she? That phrase is a clue to the next book in the Sisters at Heart series. Release date is early 2014. In the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed Rosemary's story in When the Heart Heals.

Congratulations to LINDA, CINDY, and BONNIE! Your teas will be on the way to you soon!

A Consolation Contest Just for You!

So many of you participated in the wonderful TEA WITH ROSEMARY giveaway sponsored by my publisher, Revell.  We just announced the winners last Friday.  I wish every one of you could have won a prize, but since that's not possible, I decided a consolation contest was in order.

What is a consolation contest?  Well, when you were young, did you ever attend a birthday party where the hostess gave out little consolation gifts to all the partygoers--even those not celebrating a birthday--to make the whole event more of a celebration?

That's my intention with this contest. :)

To make this even more fun, I'm turning this contest into a word puzzle scavenger hunt.  The words you'll discover will give you the chance to win one of three consolation prizes, and they'll also reveal a key plot point in the next book in my Sisters at Heart series!

Here's what you'll need to do:

1.)  Go to the Look Inside This Book section for my latest novel, When the Heart Heals, on Amazon.

2.)  Follow the prompts below, to locate the three keywords for the puzzle.

3.)  Post a comment here, with the keywords you find.

4.)  I'll select three winners by random number generator from all the correct guesses. Be sure to leave your email address with your comment!

Here's what you could win:

Three winners will receive consolation prizes.  Each prize includes a 1 oz. package of Day Dreamer Blended tea (a blend of spearmint, lemongrass, elderberries, rose buds, linden flowers, chamomile, orange peel, and red raspberry leaves), a tea brewing infuser, and a When the Heart Heals bookmark.

Ready?  Solve this word puzzle:
