Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt Stop #15 (Purple Team)
If you’re just joining us, there are two loops—purple and pink—and they begin at Lisa Bergren’s site and Robin Lee Hatcher’s site for stop #1 for either stream respectively. If you complete either the pink loop or purple loop, you can enter for a Kindle paperwhite and the 17 autographed books from that loop. If you complete BOTH loops, you can enter for the Grand Prize of a Kindle Fire HDX and ALL 34 autographed books.
The Hunt begins at NOON Mountain time on April 16 and ends at midnight Mountain on April 19, 2015, so you have a long weekend to complete all 32 stops and maximize your chances at prizes!
BE SURE to keep track of the clues at the bottom of every post in the loop and the favorite number mentioned. You’ll need those clues to enter for the loop prize and every number mentioned in order to enter for the grand prize. ALSO, please don’t use Internet Explorer to navigate through the loops. Some web sites won’t show up using IE. Please use Chrome or Firefox—they’re better anyway!

About Missy’s Latest Book: The Doctor’s Second Chance:
Jake West’s troubled cousin leaves him with a most unusual parting gift—her newborn baby girl! And now the small-town contractor is forced to seek help from the very woman he resents—the new big-city pediatrician who practically stole his uncle’s practice, Violet Crenshaw. Violet knows she shouldn’t be consorting with the enemy. But she can’t resist the adorable baby and her handsome new caretaker. Violet traded her chance at motherhood for her career years ago. But raising a family with Jake could be everything she’s ever wanted.

And now here is Missy’s EXCLUSIVE content that you’ll find only on this hunt!
I love reading and writing stories with heroes and heroines who are opposites. I’ve been drawn to this naturally as one of my frequent themes. And I’ve think I figured out why. My parents’ romance is one of opposites attracting. And in some ways, my husband and I are opposites as well.
My parents came from totally different socioeconomic backgrounds. One grew up in a small town with successful parents, business people who worked hard and did well for themselves. The other grew up in poverty, moving around, and even had a baby brother die of malnutrition. Yet they caught each other’s eye, and their first date was my mother’s high school prom. But then they headed off in different directions for college. Of course, after one semester, they missed each other, so my mom transferred. And the rest is history…
My husband and I are opposites in some ways as well. I run more on intuition and emotion. He runs on logic (although, I have a good bit of that in me as well). We’ve also had to deal with the fact that I’m a “piler” and he’s a “filer.” He’s very organized and I’m…not. 🙂 His side of the closet is evenly spaced and practically color-coded. Mine looks as if something exploded. Yes, we manage. And after almost 30 years of marriage, he’s learned that I really DO know what’s in each of my piles, and I know where to look for things.
In my most recent book from Love Inspired, The Doctor’s Second Chance, my main characters are very different from each other. The heroine, Violet, is a detail oriented pediatrician who is driven. The hero, Jake, is a general contractor who’s more laid back, an outdoorsman who enjoys sports. He sees her as uppity. She seems him as a burly bachelor, ill-prepared to care for the baby his cousin left with him. They also have opposite views on Violet’s purchase of his aunt and uncle’s pediatric practice. Lots of conflict between them! Of course, there’s attraction, too. But enough for them to overcome their differences?
I had so much fun writing this book! I hope you’ll check it out. Feel free to read an excerpt by clicking here.
