Treasures of Her Heart by Gail Gaymer Martin

TreasuresofherHeart LD This book has been a long time coming.  I wrote the book years ago, but writing for two  category romance line Love Inspired and Barbour’s Heartsong Presents, the book did not fit the typical formula for that genre.

First it was too long. The book presently it about 86,000.  Next the hero and heroine didn’t begin the process of falling in love in the first couple of pages. Instead they are platonic best friends who are there for each other always, but romance hasn’t been considered. Third, another man enters the picture to add a complexity to the story, and finally the book is not just a romance but also has a mystery woven through the plot.

But today with Independent publishing an opportunity for traditional novelist to publish books they love without anyone to stop them, I have done what is necessary to bring this book to life—edited, revised,  tossed out scenes and rewrote others, professoinal edits and a great cover designer.  I am thrilled that after my hours of research and creating real life characters, the story is now alive and available asn trade book form or an eBook.

Treasures of Her Heart
Gail Gaymer Martin
May, 2014

What’s the story about?

Nikki Townley a fashion-buyer, looking for a life with deeper meaning, leaves her career and moves to a small, tourist town in northern Michigan to assist her ailing great-aunt Winnie in running her floundering antique business. There she finds herself caught in a mystery searching for her aunt’s missing fortune, facing an investment company in pursuit of her aunt’s property, and hoping to save long-distance romance with her faithful male friend Rob Moore, while struggling to escape her attraction to an exciting, smooth-talking womanizer. Can she overcome temptation, locate the missing fortune and find the truth to the treasures of her heart? Will Rob wait for Nikki to make up her mind?

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the wayy of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got ann awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
