BOOK TOUR & Giveaway - The Scent of Roses by Charlene Raddon


Rosalyn Delaney’s husband, Josiah, had vanished six years ago. Following a private detective’s lead, Rosalyn leaves Salt Lake City and boards a train heading to the mining town of Whiskey Ridge, Arizona. She arrives at Rose House, an old mansion reputed to be haunted, only to discover her missing husband has been killed, and his business partner, Whip Kincade, is wanted for his murder. Determined to uncover the secrets surrounding Josiah and his death, Rosalyn decides to stay-even when she begins to receive nightly visits from a charming “ghost”…


Escaping a troubled past, Whip Kincade had hoped he could make a fresh start by coming to Whiskey Ridge and opening a saloon with his friend, Josiah. Now as a murder suspect hiding in his own house, Whip’s future looks bleak indeed…unless he can find the real culprit. But the unexpected intrusion of Rosalyn ruins his plans of sneaking out at night to investigate. Scaring her away is the first step in clearing his name, but Rosalyn doesn’t rattle easily. And Whip isn’t sure he wants the lovely widow to walk out of his life—especially when she would take his heart with her…

This was a great story! It was full of mystery, lust and a growing romance that was full of surprises and suspense. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. The story draws you in and has you on the edge of your seat, with tissues by your side. The writing was so real you could "feel" the longing and aching of her heart, but you could also "feel" the love.  A must read for any mystery romance lover. Great read! - review from

I will long remember this book. Charlene Raddons books are keepers. Her characters are full , vibrant real people. Ms. Raddons writing style is very descriptive and flows nicely. Anyone who likes western fiction and warm characters will love her books. they are well paced and a joy to read. The Coyotes howling with joy and the wonder they bring to the humans is so very descriptive. loved this book.......try it, you won't be disappointed. - review from

This was a great book. I love a really good well written western and Ms Raddon delivers. her characters are fully developed and very down to earth , real. I enjoyed this read and you will also. fantastic writer ! look for all of her books. - review from Goodreads

About the Author
Charlene began her writing life at an early age, often penning stories where she cast herself as the heroine. It was after college when she dug out her old college typewriter and started her first novel, which came from a spirited dream she'd had the pervious night.

While that book never sold, her second novel did. Tender Touch became a Golden Heart finalist and earned her an agent who signed the book, and two others, in a three book contract with Kensington Publishing. Kensington went onto publish five of Charlene's western historical romances: Taming Jenna (1994); Tender Touch (1994 Golden Heart Finalist); Forever Mine (1996 Romantic Times Magazine Reviewer's Choice Award Nominee and Affaire de Coeur Reader/Writer Poll finalist); To Have and To Hold (1997); and as Rachel Summers, The Scent of Roses (1999).

Charlene took a break from publishing, but not from writing. A Kiss and A Dare is Charlene's first paranormal romance.

Divine Gamble is Charlene's latest work and won first place in the western historical category of the 2010 Romance Through The Ages contest.

When Charlene isn't writing, she loves to travel, do genealogy, digital scrapbooking and dyes eggs in the Ukrainian style. And she enjoys camping and fishing with her husband in the Utah wilderness.

    BTW, several of the FB likes gave a message "You can't post this because it has a blocked link: The content you're trying to share includes a link that our" and won't let me 'like' the page. You might want to get that fixed. Just an FYI.
