My timeline has been greatly adjusted, but I finally have the final cover to share with you for my next novella, A Side of Hope that will be releasing next month! (Final release date to come in the next few weeks…as well as a potential teaser chapter!!)

birthday presents come in strange packages…
Davis was meeting her forties head on. Happy and healthy, she didn’t need a man
to complete her. But as she blew out her candles, she made a halfhearted wish
for maybe just a little excitement to spice up her life.
must have misunderstood her wish, though, because moments later, He brought her the
one person she never wanted to see again.

I’m SO excited to share this next book about HOPE and SECOND CHANCES and give you a glimpse into Tilly’s life! 



  1. I am excited to read the new novella!

    1. Thanks!! I'm excited for you to BE able to read it! 🙂

  2. Very cool. Love it! Congrats, Krista!

  3. I love this cover and look forward to reading this novella! Thank you for writing about people who find love at a later age. There aren't very many CBA books like that.

    1. I'll be honest, it was out of my normal comfort zone since most of my characters have been the opposite, on the young age range. (I myself married at 18… so that's what I know, LOL!)

      Have you read any of Kaye Dacus' books? Her contemporaries featured 40-ish aged characters finding love. She's not publishing currently, but Stand-in Groom is a great one to start with if you haven't read them already!

    2. Oh, yes, I've read and own all of Kaye's books! They are really good. I'm not forty, but will be thirty-four this year and have never been married. It kind of helps to read about older people, as well as, the younger ones finding love.

  4. Looks and sounds incredible, Krista girl!!

  5. Can't wait to dig into this "side"!

    1. I'm hoping you'll find it YUMMY!

  6. I am so looking forward to it!

  7. Are your novellas related in some way? The similar but different covers are cool. Looking forward to it. 🙂

    1. Yes, in a way! They are all based in Sandwich, IL, just like my novel, Sandwich, with a Side of Romance. You'll see major characters from previous books now minor characters. The heroine, Tilly, was the waitress (and is now manager) of the Sandwich location of The Sandwich Emporium, so she was seen in both of the previous two books but only had a very minor roll.

      The last novella will be A Side of Love, then I will finish our time in Sandwich with a final full-length novel, The Greatest is Love.

      Great question! THANK YOU!!

  8. Another great cover and I look forward to reading the new book! Congrats!
