One Caribbean summer in Atlanta, love comes walking in…


Pray for Me is the fifth novel in USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Vacation Sweethearts series of standalone Christian travel romances. We first met Gus in Smile for Me (Vacation Sweethearts Book 1). At that time, he had left the corporate world and was a landscape gardener in the Bahamas. Pray for Me is his story.


Unwanted time off…

After losing Veronique to another man, Augustus “Gus” Moss III needs a distraction and a change of scenery. He takes a leave of absence from his landscaping job in Nassau and flies to Atlanta, Georgia, to visit his cousin, Byron Moss. When Byron’s whole family catches a cold, Gus ends up staying at Pastor Fitzpatrick’s house, and finds himself drafted into serving in some of Midtown Chapel’s summer ministries. He agrees to help because he is a friend of the pastor’s eldest daughter, who seems to believe strongly in charity work.


Unexpected moments…

Women’s Ministry Director Tallulah “Tally” Fitzpatrick is busy ministering to women at conferences, and building a village of tiny homes for single mothers. Pulled in multiple directions, she is grateful to have Gus nearby—a steady friend who is around at just the right place and time. Although she has made up her mind to only marry an ordained pastor, she can’t help being drawn to Gus, the landscaper with an accounting background and an MBA in finance.


Unavoidable crossroads…

Are Gus and Tallulah just flirting with each other for the summer, or will the romance last into the winter of their lives? When the man of her dreams arrives in town, Tallulah has to choose between the two. Who will she let go? For sure, both Tallulah and Gus need a lot of prayer.


Note to Readers: Pray for Me is the prelude to a new series, Lakeside Chapel. In Pray for Me, we meet the Fitzpatrick family. Pastor Daniel “Fizz” Fitzpatrick’s nonagenarian mother lives in the small town of Lakeside, Florida, where she runs Lakeside Resort, about ten minutes away from Lakeside Chapel, the namesake of the 6-novel series coming soon.
