Welcome to the Blog, Clare Revell!!

Today I'm delighted to introduce you to a wonderful White Rose Author with a brand new release that incorporates so much of what I love: Romance, suspense, and a royal wedding!

To get you started, here's some information about author Clare Revell:

Clare lives in a small town in England with her husband of 17 years and her three children. Writing from a early childhood and encouraged by her teachers, she graduated from rewriting fairy stories through fanfiction to using her own original characters and enjoys writing an eclectic mix of romance, crime fiction and children's stories. When she's not writing, reading, sewing or keeping house or doing the many piles of laundry her children manage to make, she's working part time in the breakfast club at one of the local schools.

She has been a Christian for more than half her life. She goes to Carey Baptist where she is one of three registrars.

Her latest book is Cassie's Wedding Dress - here's a peek!


Steeplechase jockey Cassie Hinton's dream was to walk down the aisle in her medieval wedding gown to become Mrs. Jack Chambers. Injured in the Grand National, she returns home...only to find Jack is now the Pastor of her parent's church. Jack Chambers, now a widower and single parent, still has feelings for Cassie, but she sees him as nothing more than a Pastor. Even if he could change her mind, there is still his position to consider. With the Royal Wedding fast approaching, Cassie makes her dress, little dreaming of the consequences of doing so.


“Everyone else has photos of the royal couple and ribbons, silver bells, hearts and balloons. I wanted something more sophisticated but this…” she gestured at the window, “…isn’t it.”

“Maybe tie it in with what Danny sells. After all, the bakers did a wedding cake and the printers did invitations.”

Cassie nodded, her mind whirling. “Yeah…thank you.”

Jack glanced at his watch. “I’d best be off and get Lara from school. She complains if I’m late. I hope you find a solution to your problem.”

“Thank you. Bye.” Cassie smiled and turned back to her display, watching Jack’s reflection in the glass as he walked away. He’d always been a Godly man, even as a teenager, and despite everything that happened he kept his faith—unlike her. Her life and her faith lay in ruins.

She used to hope he’d ask her out one day, but it never happened. And now it never would. She was down and out before anything even got started.

He was a pastor, and she was his parishioner. A fallen- without- hope- of- redemption parishioner, at that. Strike one.

He was a widower with a small daughter. Strike two.

Her leg—her disability. No man would ever want a one-legged ex-jockey. Strike three.




A royal romance. Second chances at life—and love. Overcoming the odds. These intriguing elements come together, kissed by a touch of suspense as well, in the pages of Cassie’s Wedding Dress by Clare Revell.

Cassie Hinton is a former jockey finding a new life and career for herself following a tragic set of circumstances that form the backbone of the story. Pastor Jack Chambers is a childhood friend of Cassie and her brother Danny. Jack’s life has been tumultuous as well. He’s a widower with a precious little girl when their lives reconnect.

A shop window design project in centers around an upcoming royal wedding and prompts Cassie’s foray into dress design and an incredible set of circumstances that will leave readers flying through the pages to see what happens next.

I greatly enjoy Clare Revell’s direct, charming and engaging style of writing. Her previous offerings, and now Cassie’s Wedding Dress, are topnotch reads that live on long after the last pages are turned.

Kudos, Ms. Revell. I eagerly await your next release!
