Tess Thompson Romance...hometowns and heartstrings.

Tess Thompson is the USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author of contemporary and historical Romantic Women’s Fiction with nearly 40 published titles. When asked to describe her books, she could never figure out what to say that would perfectly sum them up until she landed on, Hometowns and Heartstrings.

She’s married to her prince, Best Husband Ever, and is the mother of their blended family of four kids and five cats.

Thanks for your sweet note. Right now I'm working on the fifth Blue Mountain book, Blue Twilight. It's a bit of a spinoff of the first four books - a new set of characters but with Moonstone around to help solve the mystery. After that, I'll be writing several more Emerson Pass books to release 2021. I'm hoping to get at least another three of those out this year. I'm so happy to hear from you and humbled that my books have helped during these hard days! Love, Tess(less)

Excerpt from The Problem Child

Viktor slowly turned from the window, wearing an expression I’d never seen before. His features twisted into various shapes as if something pained him. What was this? Fear? Wide-shouldered, tall Viktor Olofsson afraid? The man who had bravely saved my sister from her captor without a second thought? Yes. And it was me he feared.

“I’ve never known you to be afraid of anything, Viktor Olofsson.”

Delicious and sweet page turner!

The tale of spoiled Sophie taking on the world when she doesn’t want to is a wonderful treat. I laughed out loud several times. Loved all the ‘boys’! A great read for a day when you might be feeling a little blue or ho

“She'd not known grief would come in waves, brought on by the smallest of things. Nor had she realized that ordinary acts of living would continue even after the loss of a love and that it would remain possible to get caught up in the moment of a simple pleasure before remembering.”
Tess Hardwick
tags: grief

“She didn't belong here, amidst all the laughter, abandonment, the war cries of freedom. These other kids were alive and vibrant. She was chained and invisible.”
Tess Hardwick, Riversong

“life isn't understandable. Only God understands and we have to wait until the end, where I imagine I'll see my questions answered, spread out across the heavens in waves of clarity.”
Tess Thompson, The River Valley Collection
