LOVE Inspired Books are a great series of books and I really like them as 
they are short books, but very intense story-lines. 

Grace Porter is a Veterinarian who goes back to her Small Town life that 
she grew up, Blackberry Falls, Colorado, to help run the Vet Clinic that
her father left to her. She is also there to support her sister Chloe who 
is going through a recent divorce. Grace plans to be in town temporarily. 
Chloe and Grace are threatened, Chloe is attacked and is in the hospital
 and are now fearful that someone is out to kill them. The only one who 
can help them is Police Chief Evan Bradshaw, who happens to be Grace's 
ex-boyfriend. Evan Bradshaw is a widow and Single Father, who is raising 
his son. Grace really has to put the past behind her and be trusting of Evan
to help solve the case of death threats to Grace and Chloe. Will Grace really
put the past behind her or does she start falling for Evan again? Will Evan be 
able to find the potential killer and keep Grace and Chloe safe? Will there be
a renewal of relationship between Grace and Evan? Does Grace make her 
stay in Blackberry Falls go from Temporary to forever? 

Rocky Mountain Revenge is the debut Novel by Rhonda Starnes and it did 
not disappoint. I was captivated by this book within the first 4 paragraphs. 
The twists and turns in this book kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't 
put it down until I finished it and I was glad I picked it up on a day 
that I had no other plans, as it allowed me the time to finish it in one sitting. 
Rocky Mountain Revenge is a book of Second Chances, trusting friends, 
and being there for family situations. GREAT BOOK!!

Probably the number one question any author receives is “How did you come up with the idea for the story?”


When the Love Inspired editors announced, in February 2019, they were hosting The Great Love Inspired Author Search, I knew I had to enter. After all I’d spent the last six years targeting the Harlequin Love Inspired lines. This would be my fourth time entering one of their pitch contests, my third pitching to Love Inspired Suspense. The only problem was I didn’t have anything new to enter. They’d already seen all of my manuscripts.


I follow the Love Inspired editors on social media, so I had read several posts on themes and settings they’d like to see. One editor had even mentioned Colorado as a setting she’d like to see in a book. This started my wheels turning because my husband and I lived in Colorado for a few months when we were first married. We loved our time there and have often talked about going back one day. I started researching parts of the state that we didn’t get to visit when we lived there, and then I created the fictional small town of Blackberry Falls.


I’d had an idea in the back of my head for while about a story that involved a heroine who wasn’t in law enforcement but who witnessed a crime while on video chat. That’s how I came up with Grace Porter, a veterinarian who had run away from her small-town roots. And what’s a homecoming story without a reunion romance? Enter, Police Chief Evan Bradshaw, the man Grace had left behind. Once I had the opening scene, main character, and setting in place, everything else just kind of evolved from there.
