ISLAND DREAMS - Kimberly Rose Johnson - One Free Ebook

Welcome back, Kimberly. What are some of the spiritual themes you like to write about?
I don’t set out to write spiritual themes into my stories, but two keep popping up. Fear and forgiveness.

What other books of yours are coming out soon?
I had a fun anthology release in July called Love in Mistletoe Springs. Island Christmas, The final book in the Wildflower B and B Romance series releases in October.

If you could spend an evening with one contemporary person (not a family member of yours), who would it be and why?
Debbie Macomber because I admire her career and all that she has accomplished.

What historical person would you like to meet (besides Jesus) and why?
I would love to ask Adam and Eve a bunch of questions. Hmm, there would probably be a language barrier.

How can you encourage authors who have been receiving only rejections from publishers?
Continue to improve your writing and remember that God’s timing is perfect even though it’s rarely the timing we’d like. I know this from personal experience. J

Tell us about the featured book.
Island Dreams is the second book in the Wildflower B and B Romance series. It takes place on a small Island in the Puget Sound. Here is the back cover blurb. Piper Hunt arrives on Wildflower Island to develop family property into an upscale resort knowing this may be her last chance to prove her worth to her father. With grandiose ideas, she soon finds herself at odds with adjoining property owner, Chase Grayson. As she begins to appreciate the simplicity of the island, she struggles to maintain balance between her father's wishes, preserving the natural beauty of the island, and her attraction for Chase.

Chase Grayson values the peace and quiet of Wildflower Island. That serenity is threatened when Piper Hunt discloses her plans to develop an upscale resort that not only butts up to his property, but will turn the island into a busy tourist destination. In fighting her plans, he also finds himself fighting his attraction to her. If he doesn't stop her plans for the resort, his life will be altered forever. If he succeeds, it means he will never see her again. Can he live with either choice?

Please give us the first page of the book.
PIPER HUNT HATED TO BE LATE but this time it couldn’t be helped. She rushed into the general store where the smell of coffee permeated the air. She’d give anything for a good cup right now. She hoped this place had a decent brew but was doubtful. She already missed the Starbucks in her Tacoma office building.

She stopped abruptly as her surroundings registered in her brain. “Whoa.” She’d stepped back in time at least fifty years. Her dad had warned her about Wildflower Island, but this was the kind of place one had to see to believe.

The general store looked like something out of Little House on the Prairie only somewhat modernized. She looked around the expansive space. It really wasn’t bad. On one side groceries and sundries were lined up neatly on old-fashioned wood shelves reminiscent of a simpler time in history, on the other side a small café.

She squared her shoulders and strode to the right toward the café. Now to find Chase Grayson. She looked around the room and didn’t spot anyone that could be described as six foot tall and in his early thirties. She glanced at her watch. The ferry to the island had been a little late this morning thanks to a stalled vehicle. The man was supposed to meet her here ten minutes ago. Had he given up and left? She’d sent him a text, but he hadn’t replied. Maybe he never saw it.

A guy who looked to be in his late teens stood at the café’s register. “May I help you?”

“I hope so. I’m looking for Chase Grayson. I was supposed to meet him here.”

“You missed him. He left a few minutes ago. Are you Piper?”


He held out a piece of paper. “He asked me to give this to you.”
