Ruth L. Snyder, an author from Glendon, Alberta, hit #1 on Amazon.ca’s Hot New Release list in the Christian romance category with her second novella, Shadows and Sunshine, which was released on July 2, 2014. The story is the entertaining conclusion to the San Francisco Wedding Planner Series. This series takes readers on many interesting twists and turns, since five authors collaborate on a single plot throughout the six volumes. All the volumes are available from Amazon.
Tracy Krauss, Canadian author, artist, and playwright says, “Author Ruth Snyder does a wonderful job of ‘wrapping it up’ in this installment to the series. There were lots of loose ends and they come together naturally and with the right amount of believability. It was romantic without being over the top.” Snyder likes a good clean love story and aims to give her readers an enjoyable read. Snyder says, “There’s a lot of negativity about love and marriage these days. I hope my writing gives people a realistic and positive picture of true love.”
In Shadows and Sunshine, Heather and her crew are determined to pull off the wedding of the year for their high profile client. The stakes have never been higher—this single event could make or break the business. The venue is set, decorations are ordered, and the menu is one-of-a kind. Two days before the event, one thing after another goes wrong. Mario knew he should have made back-up plans, but he didn’t. Bryan thought his past was behind him, but it reappears at the worst possible moment. Heather is forced to deal with personal issues while responding to the challenges of running a business. Does the wedding planner team have the resources and creativity to bounce back and pull off the perfect event?
