Let's learn a little bit more about Cecelia and her books ...

Author Bio:

Cecelia Dowdy has been an avid reader of romance novels since she was a teenager. 

She’s an accountant by day and a romance novelist by night. She also loves to watch romance movies, especially movies on the Hallmark Channel. 

Baking is another one of her passions. She loves to create mouthwatering desserts in her spare time. She also loves visiting new places and listening to old tunes with her husband. 

Currently, she resides with her spouse and teenaged son in Maryland.


Back Cover Blurb for Chocolate Dreams:

Overnight, Monica Crawford finds her neatly organized world turned upside down. 

Her sister abandons her blind son, Scotty, leaving him on Monica's doorstep. Caring for a child was not in Monica's carefully-laid plans, after all, she's working on her MBA while pursuing a marketing director position. However, caring for a handicapped child brings unexpected conflict-but unexpected joy as well. 

When John French volunteers to tutor Scotty, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to Monica. But John and Monica are very different. She is a strong believer, determined to live her life for Christ. John is an agnostic who wants nothing to do with God. 

Will John see the light? Will Monica realize that sometimes letting go of a dream is the way to achieve it? 

Only in full surrender will either of them be happy- whether they end up together or alone.

  3. Cindy and Pt, thanks so much for visiting today! I really enjoyed writing Chocolate Dreams. Cindy, I studied Finance in college. I'm currently working on my Masters in Accounting and Finance at the University of Maryland Global Campus. I've been working in the accounting field for over thirty years, so, I just had to make my hero an accountant! Plus, I love homemade candy!

    1. I wish you well with your Masters studies, Cecelia. Anyone who goes back to college after several years in the workforce has my admiration!

  5. Chocolate is always a good idea. I will never pass up a chance for some good chocolate and getting some for my daughters. This book seems to explore some very important issues. One daughter only reads christian fiction, so it is nice to find a book she will enjoy.

    1. Thanks for commenting, Patricia! If your daughter reads Chocolate Dreams, I hope she enjoys it!

  6. I am not a chocolate person but I would have ordered tea and orange and cranberry scones.

    1. Hi, Sonnetta! I've had orange and cranberry scones! Delicious!

  7. Sounds like a very good read! I can't wait to find out what happens with Monica and John. I love a good romance.
