ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Her latest series is the acclaimed, award-winning Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, Downfall). Other reader favorites include her books Predator and Double Minds, as well as the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re not alone, and that their trials have a purpose.

Think "Grey's Anatomy finds its soul"!

While novellas are generally too short for me to enjoy reading, bundle them together--especially when they are written by a group of authors I adore--and I'm hooked! Chance of Loving You is a delightful anthology by three very talented authors. I love the culinary twist of these novellas. And while they are a bit different from each author's usual offerings, their settings match perfectly, with Blackstock's taking place in the city, Calvert's occurring in and around a hospital, and Warren's set in Deep Haven. Charming characters, enjoyable stories, and a recipe at the end of each story make this a perfect spring read. Don't miss Chance of Loving You!
