Release Party - Sweet Mountain Music by Suzie Johnson

 
 You never know who you are going to see in the wilds of the great Cascade Mountains!  Do you believe in the Great North American Ape?  Might one of them be lurking on the edge of the forest hoping to catch sight of Suzie Johnson at our release party?

 Congratulations Suzie!  Don't you all love this cover from WhiteFire Publishing

SWEET MOUNTAIN MUSIC




Chloe Williston isn't going to let a chance like this pass her by. Will the legend of the man-like, hairy beast of the great northwest be the story that seals her place as a journalist?  



Chloe longs to be like her hero, journalist Nellie Bly!
Sweet Mountain Music is set in the incredible Cascade Mountains
 The year is 1896 - Pull up your coach or wagon and join us inside the meeting hall for some mighty fine grub. There'll be some singing too, if we can get a certain gentleman to favor us with his voice!

We think we hear a lovely male voice amid all those lady songbirds!
Chloe Williston has a newshound's ear for the biggest story to come her way in a long time.  With her brother Caleb tagging along, it's going to be difficult to keep her cover. No serious naturalist wants a journalist around when he's about to become famous! I don't think Ben Kearny has a chance!

Ben Kearny has a voice like an angel, but his efforts to keep the nosey Chloe Williston from accompanying his expedition are decidedly sour.
BLURB for SWEET MOUNTAIN MUSIC!
Chloe Williston will make a name for herself... no matter what beast she must track to achieve it.

Chloe Williston has two goals in life: to make her father proud, and to do it by making a name for herself as a journalist. It seems she has been waiting for years for the perfect opportunity...and when it arrives in her Washington State town in the form of a handsome naturalist in search of the legendary Great North American Ape, she isn’t about to let him go off on an adventure without her.
Ben Kearny has to admit he’s intrigued by the undauntable Miss Chloe Williston...until he learns she’s a journalist. The last thing he needs is a reporter sticking her nose however pretty it may be in his expedition. He has to find the Sasquatch. It’s his only chance at restoring his reputation, and he can’t let anything, even Chloe, get in his way.
But as the expedition sets off with Chloe and her brother in tow, Ben find the obstacles stacked against him. He not only has to find the illusive beast, he also has to keep Chloe out of the trouble she seems determined to find...all while protecting his heart.

Come in and say hello and help us celebrate the release of Sweet Mountain Music.

Chloe's brother Caleb just went out for some ice, but while you wait, grab a plate of our best potluck fixings!

  6. Deb! Ladies! Thank you for this lovely party. I am so embarrassed that I didn't get here sooner. Today has been an adventure for sure. Not on the same scale as Chloe's, by any means. But still interesting. Thank you all, ladies.

  12. Congratulations, Suzie. I'm a little late to the party. Has anyone spotted a Great North American Ape yet? All I've seen is the cute hero. (But maybe, ahem, I didn't keep looking after that?)

    1. Hi CJ! Thank you for coming by. That hero, Ben, he's something else, isn't he? I've been late, too, so don't worry. I'm in Nashville, my phone died, and my tablet is almost out of battery power. I'm celebrating my book release on a paddle wheel river boat going down the Cumberland River. There will be a dinner theater! Awesome.

  15. apologies for being late to the party, I do so love the release parties here at the Inkwell. Suzie, this book sure piques my interest. I've discovered my wish list getting longer and longer. So many books... so little time/money *sigh*. Sweet Mountain Music is on my wish list now, maybe I can throw a hint my hubby's way the next time he asks for gift ideas.
