At First Glance | Spotlight & Excerpt

Welcome to the blog tour & giveaway for At First Glance by Susan L. Tuttle, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


When it comes to love and matters of the heart, she’s got a lot to learn.

​Estate planner Penny Thornton loves dusting off items others gloss over, especially since she relates to feeling tossed aside for the “bright and shiny”. When her younger sister’s approaching wedding launches Penny back into the throes of her dysfunctional family, she decides to use the festivities to close the gap in their relationships—even if it means appeasing them and finally losing the few pounds they’ve hounded her about for years.

But she doesn’t expect to meet two very different men in the process. East Fisher, the personal trainer who personifies everything she believes she could never attain, and Jonah Black, a man who reminds her so much of herself. Both men are more than they appear at first glance, and both seem interested in her romantically.

As Penny uncovers their hidden layers, she discovers when it comes to love and matters of the heart, she’s got a lot to learn about estimating value.

Jonah took over the questions. “Do you hold auctions?”

“Depends on what I find when I go through the houses. Some people have everyday items that sell well with a standard estate sale. Other people have incredibly valuable collections. Those I tend to put up online. I rarely do auctions.” She sipped her water. Waited to see if he’d maneuver for her help. But the question didn’t come, so she continued. “My goal is to keep doing estate sales, only less of them and eventually have my own antique store. A place where I can refurbish pieces and sell them, among other things.”

Gavin swirled his soda into a vortex with his straw. “You like old stuff then?”

“I like finding value in things where others don’t see it.”

Jonah tipped his head. “People often overlook priceless objects.”

The steel in his eyes cut at the protective layer around her heart. If she let him, he’d find a way in. That wasn’t going to happen.


Susan L. Tuttle lives in the Mitten State where she’s a homeschooling mom of three and happily married to her best friend. Between raising her teens and leading the women’s ministry at church, she finds time to write. She’s firmly convinced that letters were meant for words, not math, and loves stringing them together into stories that inspire and encourage. Romance, laughter, and cookies are three of her favorite things, though not always in that order.
