Kristin Billerbeck - Welcome



Hi, thanks for stopping by the official webpage of Kristin Billerbeck.  I have to say that because it implies that there’s an unofficial webpage, and though highly unlikely, it’s  much more interesting to ponder.

New eBook

She was tired of life…
He was tired of death…
Can one miracle restore them both?

Kelsey Mitchell’s dreams of happily ever after were washed away when her emotionally-abusive husband succumbed to the pride of his religious illusions and abandoned his family. Years later, raising two kids alone in the beachside community of Santa Cruz, Kelsey’s faith is again tested when her daughter’s life is in jeopardy. Now, she must make a choice to drown under the weight of her past or resurface triumphantly in the faith and hope she left behind.

Alex Bechtel traded his successful CPA business for his first love: Pastoring a small church in a quaint seaside village. But when he discovers the church is long on rules and short on compassion, he must question his decisions and his own definition of faith.

Can two people with troubled pasts find hope and love in one another? Or is Swimming to the Surface worth the effort?

My current work in progress is a new Chick Lit.  I don’t have plans for it yet because I wanted to write unencumbered and see where my heart led.  Writing can be a treadmill and I want to remember what makes my heart sing.  Being snarky makes my heart sing, so I go there first….I’ll keep you posted.

Welcome to Smitten, Vermont.

Colleen Coble, Denise Hunter, Diann Hunt and Kristin Billerbeck

With the help of four friends, it's about to become the most romantic town in America.
The proposed closing of the lumber mill comes as unwelcome news for the citizens of Smitten. How will the town survive without its main employer? A close-knit group of women think they've got just the plan to save Smitten. They'll capitalize on its name and turn it into a tourist destination for lovers-complete with sweet shops, a high-end spa, romantic music on the square, and cabins outfitted with fireplaces and hot tubs.

But is this manly town ready for an influx of romantically-minded guests?

Country music sensation Sawyer Smitten, the town's hometown hero, wants to help by holding his own wedding there on Valentine's Day. And little Mia's lavender wreaths hang all over town as a reminder that faith can work miracles. Along the way, four women spearheading the town's transformation-energetic Natalie, sophisticated Julia, graceful Shelby, and athletic Reese-get in the spirit by reviving their own love lives.

Join best-selling inspirational romance authors (and real-life BFFs) Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter for an inspiring stay at the (soon-to-be) most romantic town on the eastern seaboard.
One visit . . . and you'll be smitten too.

Up next:  The devotional, God's grace is sufficient, decaf is not.
Work in Progress:  Love's Sweet Fragrance, a new Geek-Chic novel.  Daphne Sweeten is a professionally-trained "Nose" who knows the formula for the perfect fragrance, but when it comes to life, her chemical makeup may be a little off.

The final in the Universally Misunderstood Young Adult Series

Daisy Crispin is at a crossroads. In one direction lies the promised land--life at college, away from her embarrassing and overprotective parents. In the other direction is reality--her strapped bank account, an ailing father, and family priorities. Daisy knows the "perfect" daughter wouldn't have to think twice. But maybe Daisy was never really perfect on any level, because she does not want her life to look the way her parents think it should. She won't let that stop her, though. Now that she has been given an exciting free trip to Argentina before going to college, she's thrilled--until her parents decide to go along with her.



When deprived of her most prized sense, Daphne discovers a life she never expected, right under her nose.  
Daphne Sweeten has left Paris – and a career she loves – in order to marry a man she loves even more. But when he stands her up on their wedding day, Daphne’s left reeling. Trained as a professional “nose” or perfume creator, Daphne soon realizes that her sense of smell has somehow disappeared too.
In the days following she moves to Dayton, Ohio, to take on a job creating fragrances for household products. Without her sense of smell, she must rely on her chemistry skills, and hope her handsome new boss, Jesse Lightner, doesn’t notice before she can figure out how to get it back. 
Despite her desire to return to Paris, she can’t deny the way Jesse makes her feel. But when Daphne approaches former contacts, she learns her missing ex-fiancé has somehow snagged her old job.  
As Daphne and Jesse work on a signature scent for their new line, she feels God at work in her life as never before. And the promise of what is possible is as fresh as the scent of rain.



Billion Reasons by Kristin Billerbeck

Now Available
from Thomas Nelson Publishers:

There are a billion reasons Kate should marry her current boyfriend. Will she trade them all to be madly in love?

Katie McKenna leads a perfect life. Or so she thinks. She has a fulfilling job, a cute apartment, and a wedding to plan with her soon-to-be fiancé, Dexter.

She can think of a billion reasons why she should marry Dexter…but nowhere on that list is love.

And then in walks Luc DeForges, her bold, breathtaking ex-boyfriend. Only now he’s a millionaire. And he wants her to go home to New Orleans to sing for her childhood friend's wedding. As his date.

But Katie made up her mind about Luc eight years ago, when she fled their hometown after a very public breakup. Yet there’s a magnetism between them she can’t deny.

Katie thought her predictable relationship with Dexter would be the bedrock of a lasting, Christian marriage. But what if there’s more? What if God’s desire for her is a heart full of life? And what if that’s what Luc has offered all along?

Billerbeck's light romance is enjoyable and fun. Readers will identify with Katie's desire for stability in a relationship and will delight in her ultimate choice of a partner. ...A fantastic spiritual message makes this novel shine.       ~ Romantic Times
