On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Looking Through the Lens Tour Grand Finale for
Fear of Falling
By Catherine Lanigan

Did you enjoy look through Olivia's and Rafe's lens with snapshots of these characters, their lives, and living in Indian Lake? If you missed any of the posts, go back and check them out now (and enjoy the scrapbook of snapshots)...

Launch: Introduction

Welcome to my world of Indian Lake as seen through the eyes of talented, but cowardly photographer, Olivia Melton. Yeah, she’s been obsessed with cameras all her life; snaps majestic pix of horses and animal life. Though she sees the world through a different filter than most of us---commonly known as “creativity”, she’s terrified of failing.

Zerina Blossom's Books - Snapshot: In Love with a Picture

I chose photography as Olivia’s creative talent because it was dream of my sister’s...
Though Nancy was a fair artist, her photographs weren’t prize-winning.   I think that’s why my sister never tried.  Therefore, for Olivia that constant fear of “would she be good enough” is the same fear that holds most of us back from trying our wings.

Becky on Books  - Excerpt:

“Good. Great. Then you’ll control your urge to try to make yourself seem special to your girlfriends by using my horse.”
That was it. Olivia put her hands on her hips and marched around the bakery case and up to Rafe. Tilting her head back she glared at him. “Look, you, bonehead..."

Getting Your Read On  - Review:
Olivia's thing is photography and I love how that was incorporated into the book.  Rafe is all about horses and not just horses, but racing horses and that is something that scares Olivia.  Olivia and Rafe have their share of misunderstandings- back and forth throughout the book. 
Singing Librarian Books  - Review:
Catherine has creating an intriguing story of horse racing and conquering fears, as well as realistic characters that readers will love from page one and throughout the entire story.

Wishful Endings - Character Snapshots
Rafe Barzonni has spent his life trying to live up to his father’s high standards...
Olivia Melton’s father was a gambling addict and lost the family savings at the race track...

EskieMama Reads - Snapshot of Thoroughbred Racing
I have to confess that this idea came from my life. Actually, my mother’s life. 
Horses were in her blood. I still have the newspaper articles from those first horse races.
Guest Post 3 - Pict 4

Colorimetry - Snapshot of the Indian Lake Deli

Olivia and her mother, Julia, have worked hard to keep the deli open and improving on their menu and catering business. 

Mel's Shelves - Review:
They are likable characters yet each have their flaws. Family and friends are important to them and are a big part of their story. It's a great read for those who enjoy clean contemporary romance!

deal sharing aunt -  Snapshot of Horses and Training Track
Rafe’s track to train his horse... is a place of tranquility, beauty and where dreams are spun. Olivia is drawn to it nearly as much as she is to Rafe...

Reading Is My SuperPower - Review:
Rowan the horse completely stole the show for me. His intuition and personality gave the book an added depth and placed Rowan among the ranks of my favorite animal characters in fiction.

Thoughts of a Blonde - Review:
Olivia Melton works hard with her Mom at Indian Lake Deli and on catering jobs and enjoys her life filled with her close relationship with her Mom and friends around town. She’s not looking for anything more, but can’t believe the attraction she feels for Rafe Barzonni when she runs into him.

I Am A Reader - Snapshot of Indian Lake Series
Indian Lake is a town of loving, sometimes eccentric, characters who are all struggling to find their way in life and love, as all of us do, but they come together as a group, helping, hugging, praying and encouraging each other. 

Any one can see how easy it would be to fall in love in a romantic town like this.

Her best bet is to stay away

Was Olivia hearing this right? The one man in Indian Lake she'd found truly intriguing since, well, forever—the hopelessly handsome heir to the region's most successful farming operation, Rafe Barzonni—was involved in horse racing? That made him, and her sudden attraction, downright dangerous. He wasn't just out of her league. He was a gambler. Like her father. With the shame of her father's racetrack betting addiction still haunting her, Olivia can't be part of that world. Rafe's world. She can't trust him, or his magnetism. But there's something deep in his incredible blue eyes that keeps drawing her closer…
