Cover Reveal: Where Trains Collide By Amber Stokes {And A Giveaway!}

I am so, so pleased to be able to share this wonderful cover from my dear friend Amber's upcoming novella. Amber is a fabulous writer and I always get so excited when she tells me she's got something new coming up. And this next book sounds perfectly delightful! But first, the cover...




Isn't it adorable?! I am always a fan of cute couple covers (is that a great alliteration or what? ;) and this one is too cute! But all the little details just make it more fun as well. The train tracks, the bouquet of leaves, the colors in the sky, it's all so pretty! Wouldn't you agree? And as I have always had a little bit of a fascination with trains, that aspect of the book most certainly intrigues me. There's just something about getting onboard and traveling surrounded by so many other people going to any number of destinations. (Kind of like air travel that way!) I love that the tracks on the cover just seemingly go on forever. This one sounds like a keeper for sure and I, for one, cannot wait to read it!


About the Book

Two hearts racing in different directions will meet where trains collide.

Burned out and disillusioned with her chosen career path, Trisha Knolane gives in to impulse and hops on a train bound for Oregon, eager to escape the stress of college for a few days. But what begins as a fun little adventure suddenly collapses into a nightmare when she discovers that her ex-boyfriend is also on board.

All her hopes and dreams had once centered on Paul Benson. Now, when Trisha doesn't know where her current track will lead, Paul’s questions only complicate matters and spark a few of her own.

Questions that could change the course of her life.

A heartfelt and thought-provoking contemporary romance novella, Where Trains Collide faces the uncertain season of new adulthood head-on and shows that sometimes a path of broken dreams can lead to life's best destination.

  2. Love all your thoughts, Kara, and I'm so touched by your sweet words! :) I, too, am a huge fan of train (and air!) travel. Love the the way you describe it, how we're "surrounded by so many other people going to any number of destinations." It's so interesting to think of all the stories going on around you!

    Thank you again for this kind post! And yay for couple covers, am I right?? ;)

    P.S. This is totally random, but can I just say how very much I love the title of your blog and that line it's based on? It just struck me anew today how inspiring it is.

    1. You are so entirely welcome, Amber! And that's it exactly, there are SO many stories going on around us as we travel, whether by plane or train. That makes people watching even more fun, imagining who they are, where their going, where they've been, etc. :)

      Aw, thank you! I just love that quote so much. Inspiring is definitely the word for it. I'm very happy that I chose a blog name that I still love! While trying to come up with it, that was one of my concerns.

  3. Usually I'm on the fence about couple covers. But as soon as I saw this one (before I started reading), I thought, "Well, that's just adorable!" I love it! Seriously, the description is fun, but the cover is what really sold me on this--I'll be reading it!
