Guideposts (August 2012)
Courtney Walsh


Courtney Walsh is a published author, scrapbooking expert, theatre director and playwright. Her debut novel, A Sweethaven Summer, was released in February, 2012 by Guideposts Books, and will be followed by two additional novels in the series. She has also written two papercrafting books, Scrapbooking Your Faith and The Busy Scrapper and is currently working on her third, The Scrapcrafter’s Idea Book (F&W Publications, February, 2013.)

Courtney has been a contributing editor for Memory Makers Magazine and Children’s Ministry Magazine and is a frequent contributor to Group Publishing curriculum, newsletters and other publications.

Courtney is a member of ACFW and is the current PR Manager for Webster’s Pages, a scrapbooking manufacturer. She lives in Colorado with her ultra creative husband and three children.


Suzanne's daughter, Campbell, journeys there in search of answers to her questions about her mother's history.

Suzanne's three friends-Lila, Jane, and Meghan-were torn apart by long-buried secrets and heartbreak. Though they haven't spoken in years, each has pieces of a scrapbook they made together in Sweethaven.Suzanne's letters have lured them all back to the idyllic lakeside town, where they meet Campbell and begin to remember what was so special about their long Sweethaven summers.

As the scrapbook reveals secrets one by one, old wounds are mended, lives are changed, and friendships are restored-just as Suzanne intended.

My Thoughts:
I loved Sweethaven Summer it made my top list last year, you can read my review here. http://frommipov.blogspot.com/2012/02/sweethaven-summer-reviewed.html  I was so glad to see Courtney write a sequel to it. Reading Sweethaven Homecoming was like getting together with your best girlfriends for dinner.
With all of the friends coming back to Sweethaven and Suzanne's daughter Campbell returning they have a lot to work through. Working on the scrapbook pages seems to be the catalyst to bring the healing.

If you enjoy women's fiction you don't want to miss these books!

The Winner of my giveaway is Campbell!
