Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: A Season at the Grand by Sheri Wilson Johnson

Book: A Season at the Grand

Author: Sherri Wilson Johnson

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: May 9, 2023

Can the perfect picture reveal the truth before it’s too late?

Photographer Amelia Harris has had enough of her aunts’ meddling matchmaking. So when The Photographic Times commissions her to spend the summer on Mobile Bay taking portraits of the elite and capturing nature for penny postcards, Amelia happily accepts. But this job is not as simple as it appears, and Amelia must defend against naysayers if she’s to ever gain respect in a man’s world. And that doesn’t leave any room for romance.

Point Clear Resort General Manager Titus Overton never wanted the position he inherited when his cousin passed away. If it were up to him, he would be traveling with the Audubon Society to far-off places, enjoying the solitude of nature instead of providing relaxation for his guests. And now he has to deal with the big-city photographer stomping her way through sand dunes that house the migratory birds nesting there. But when she reveals an admiration for his feathered friends, it reawakens a longing in his heart he’d buried after the death of his fiancé.

When threats arise against Amelia and the other resort guests, Titus knows he must step in to help. But she insists they trust God for deliverance. How can he turn to a God who took away his first beloved?

As the danger closes in, he must find the courage to overcome his past before someone gets hurt—especially the woman he’s come to love.

I truly enjoy Christian Historical Romance Books and I also like reading books that are part of a series. A Season at the Grand by Sherri Wilson Johnson is Book 3 in the Romance at the Gilded Age Resorts series. The series is written by Various Authors and I have read the first 2 books in this series.

The setting is Point Clear, Alabama in 1905. Amelia Harris is a Photographer and is excited when she is offered a Summer Position at Mobile Bay taking pictures of the Visitors and more on behalf of The Photographic Times. She is happy that she will be able to spend the Summer away from her "Matchmaking" Aunt. She realizes this is a tough job, but she is ready to defend herself and make a name for herself. Titus Overton is the General Manager of Point Clear Resort, the resort where Amelia is staying for the Summer. Titus is a fan of the Audubon and would rather be traveling, but he inherited the General Manager position when his cousin passed away. He is at first annoyed by Amelia and how she is all over the place taking pictures. He has a change of heart when he discovers how much she loves Birds, as he is a Bird lover also. Titus has to really step it up when Amelia and other guests at the Resort begin receiving threats. He is ready to protect everyone and Amelia tells him they need to trust God in this situation. He wonders if he can trust God, as God took away his fiance a few years ago. Will Titus keep the Resort Guests safe? Will Titus be able to open his heart to God? Will his heart be opened to LOVE again, as he begins to have feelings for Amelia? 

WOW, I am truly loving this series. The Era of the book, the early 1900s is a favorite of mine. Amelia is an independent woman who has a wonderful Photography career. I LOVE her excitement and work ethic as she arrives for her Summer Job. Titus is a strong person but also is struggling with grief from losing his first love. I really LOVE how he is able to face that grief and open his heart to so much. The book is filled with Faith, Mystery, and Romance. I believe the author has done a GREAT job of connecting the characters and the book flows smoothly. WONDERFUL BOOK!

She dreams of a second home on some beach somewhere some day, where she can plot and write romantically suspenseful novels.


More from Sherri

A Season at the Grand is set in Point Clear, Alabama on Mobile Bay, because it is one of my favorite vacation spots. I adore sitting on the dock and watching dolphins while birds of all types fly overhead. I am always inspired by the ocean, and many stories have come out of my time in the Mobile Bay area.

Point Clear is also the setting of my novella, Bayside Betrayal, which also involves the Grand Hotel but under a fictitious name. Bayside Betrayal is the launching story of my Jeopardized Reunions series, which is a series filled with contemporary reunion romantic suspense stories. Why am I telling you about this series? Well, book five, which I am writing now, holds a special attachment to A Season at the Grand because one of the characters is a descendent of the couple in the story. I’m so attached to this setting that I think I may have to keep writing stories set there for years to come. I hope you’ll check out A Season at the Grand and my other books too.

I’d love it if you’d follow me on social media and join my subscriber list. I’m always excited to hear from readers!
