When You Look at Me Cover Reveal

Welcome to the official COVER REVEAL blitz for When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! When You Look At Me is the 2nd book in the Pleasant Gap Romance series and releases October 25, 2018.

An unexpected mother-to-be

A romance-leery composer

And a forgotten melody from the past that holds the keys to their futures.

When Julia Jenkins’ great aunt dies and leaves her a Victorian mansion with decades of secrets, Julia never expects to unearth a World War 2 espionage mystery. Struggling with her own past since an assault left her pregnant, her future as a solo parent leaves her dreams uncertain. The inheritance from her great aunt gives Julia the ability to take a step back into her future, but also sends her into the discovery of a love story she’d never anticipated. Following her aunt’s cryptic journal, Julia uncovers some oddly written piano music with a musical code she can’t decipher on her own. Not to worry, introverted Englishman and composer, Henry Wright, is thrust on the scene by a pair of homespun matchmakers who know the ‘right’ man for Julia’s wounded heart.

Henry arrives in Pleasant Gap with the task of composing the soundtrack for his best mate’s newest film. The Jenkins’ family’s southern welcome and gregarious personalities set his reticent nature on edge, but he’s inexplicably drawn to his gentle and music-loving hostess, Julia. Uncertain how to build a friendship with the wounded woman, and rather hopeless in communicating well through words, the bond of music becomes a bridge between her uncertainty and his awkwardness.

But her broken past and his families’ expectations build a wall much greater than the cultures that separate them. As they work together to solve a musical mystery from the grave, will an unlikely romance from the past inspire their hearts to trust in a God who’s written the perfect melody for their lives?

    Love the cover! I haven’t read any of Pepper Basham’s books before, but I’ve heard such great things!

      So excited to share this cover with you guys today and celebrate with the amazing team at Just Read! I’m going to be stopping in throughout the day so if you guys have any questions about this story or any of my other ones, or just the crazy writing life, I’ll be happy to try and answer them 🙂

    The cover is great! This is a new author to me, her books sound great and I’ll have to check into them.

  5. So excited for this new story! Can’t wait to go back to Pleasant Gap and revisit my favorite couple AND meet a new favorite! I’m also extremely intrigued by the mystery and the musical element. This one is sure to be another “weekend wrecker.” (Pepper, you know what I mean!)

    • Pepper D Basham

      HAHA! Hope!!! Well, it has some good humor – maybe not as ‘out there’ as JTWYA, but I’ve had such fun getting to know these two musical introverts. AND there may be a Princess Bride reference or two among these pages also 😉
