Featured Book: Close to Home by Carolyne Aarsen

Jace Scholte used to be the town bad boy, a rebel who thought he had a cause. But when Jace fell for Dodie Westerveld, he changed and became a Christian. Instead of marrying him, though, Dodie ran away without a word, taking his heart with her. Now they're both back in town. But Dodie still won't talk about the past. When they're paired together on a fundraiser for a new crisis center, Jace is reminded of how much she meant to him. Helping Dodie trust him—and herself—will take all the faith she once helped him find.


  1. This book sounds great, and I love that cover! I also enjoyed the cute video you and those other authors did, Carolyne. Gave me a chuckle!! :) Blessings from Georgia, Patti Jo

  2. I agree Catmom...looking forward to this one!

    What video, if you don't mind my asking?

  3. Sorry I'm just now reading your question, Hannah! Carolyne and several other well-known Christian authors made a cute video and it's posted on Youtube (I actually viewed it on FaceBook--another author posted it there). They use the Beatles' song "Paperback Writer" and it's really cute! :)
