A Perfect Fit (2020), is a spinoff from A Christmas Kind of Perfect set in Buffalo, New York. It exposes the painful process of letting go of a toxic relationship in order to fall in love with the man God intended. It is one of eight eBooks in the Ponder This series published by Pelican Book Group under the Prism Lux Imprint.
Presently, Christine is finishing A Perfect Ending where love blooms unexpectedly between two very different people after realizing that all experiences in life work together in God's perfect plan for our lives. The book is set once again in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin, and is another spinoff from the author's A Christmas Kind of Perfect.
Christine lives on five acres in the country with her husband and golden retriever and is now fortunate to devote most of her time to writing. She always has a work-in-progress, but in her spare time, she enjoys golf, tennis, kayaking and simply being outdoors where she finds the inspiration to write.
Her advice to those wanting to take the leap into writing is to join a writing/critique group, read every genre you have time for, and study the craft to the very best of your ability.
Christine is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers Association and the Romance Writers of America.

Years after its release, the author continues to hear from readers that the story strikes a familiar chord with their own personal histories and entry into America.
