About the Book

A meddling horse, paper bag floors and a flying saucer on the town square. The little town of Mars has it all---including a brand new resident who might spell heartache for one of its own.
Twenty-something Penn Davenport yearns for an exciting life in the big city and wants to shed the label of orphan that she's worn for years. To achieve that dream, she must pass the CPA exam then move away from the two aunts who reared her after her parents died in a plane crash.
When John Townsend---full of life and the joy of living---moves to town, he rattles Penn's view of herself, her life, and her dreams…which isn't such a bad thing until she falls for him…and discovers he's a pilot.
Mars...With Venus Rising offers its readers a cute but straightforward contemporary Christian romance. Set in a quirky little town with plenty of personality, it follows longtime resident Penn Davenport and handsome newcomer John Townsend through many humorous scenarios (a few specifically engineered by her matchmaking aunts to encourage love) and personal growth. It’s entertaining and encouraging (and mouth-watering, with its delicious references to sweet treats - Hope Toler Dougherty thankfully provides several recipes at the end), and I enjoyed it. Readers in need of a delightfully heartwarming read this summer should consider Mars...With Venus Rising.
