First Line Friday – A Promise for Faith

Posted October 28, 2022 by thebeccafiles in First Line Friday / 8 Comments


The book I’m featuring this week is A Promise for Faith (Briar Creek Love #1) by Stacy T. Simmons


This is actually a bit of a hard post to share this week. If you are active on social media at all, you may have seen that Stacy Simmons went home to be with the Lord a few days ago. I wanted to honor her this week by featuring her debut. Y’all, she was the most cheerful, encouraging, upbeat, bubbly person I think I’ve ever met. She always had a smile on her face and her positivity was infectious. She’s a light that will be truly missed.

Stacy had a passion for writing because she loved STORY. She would get excited and giddy just thinking about her characters and the shenanigans she had cooked up for them. We were revving up for writing sprints for NaNoWriMo next month which just isn’t going to feel the same without her.

If you don’t have it yet, buy her book y’all. I know it would mean so much to her to have her book in the hands of readers. It’s available in e-book or paperback.

Secrets have the power to ruin lives. Faith and love have the power to disarm those secrets.

Failure isn't an option for Faith Fuller, She wants to prove to herself and her very successful parents she can stand on her own, even if it means accepting a job offer from someone she wanted to forget. To add to the problem, that job means facing her biggest fear.

Caleb Gaines is looking for a manager for his coffee shop. He's in over his head running his successful river outfitters business, and being a single dad to a preschooler. But the perfect candidate wants nothing to do with him. Risk-taker Caleb is up for a challenge and wants to convince Faith to help him.

If neither one relies on faith and learns to trust, any chance at love will be washed downstream.

An out-of-work chef and successful river outfitter are both hiding secret tragedies. How much faith will it take to learn to trust in each other, overcome obstacles, and find love?

    Been thinking about you a lot this week. Sending lots of hugs as I’m praying for you and for Stacy’s family.

  2. I did hear about her death this week, and while I didn’t know her, my heart broke for her family. I think it’s great you are honoring her in this way. I am sorry for your loss and the void you will feel in the next few months.

    The yellow and orange leaves swirled around in a light breeze as if they were dancing, then slowly fluttered to the ground for their finale.
