Book reveal (and a giveaway!)

August 19th, 2014 | 332 comments »

**Please note: the giveaway is now closed.

So. . . want to know more about my next book?

First things first, the question I’m most frequently asked about my next book is whether it will be part of the FBI/U.S. Attorney series. So I think it’s best if I just rip off the band-aid and tell you straight-out that no, my next book is not part of that series.

Now, I know what some of you might be thinking.

But I promise you that we will all get through this. In fact, I think a lot of you are going to be quite pleased.

The reason Book 8 is not part of the FBI/U.S. Attorney series is that neither the heroine nor hero is an FBI agent or Assistant U.S. Attorney. And no part of the plot relates to the FBI or federal prosecutors office. So, calling it an FBI/U.S. Attorney book would be, well, weird.


That doesn’t mean there won’t be some familiar faces. . .

Remember Love Irresistibly, how the heroine (Brooke) had a guy best friend? Judging from your emails, tweets, and comments, he’s someone that many of you wanted to know a lot more about. Well, here’s your chance.


Available May 2015


Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn’t mean she’s opposed to casual dating—just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister’s case, she’s as determined to win as ever—even if that means teaming up with Ford.


Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He’s willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there’s no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for. . .

* * *

Ford’s book! Yay! His story had been percolating in the back of my mind for two years, and I’m super-excited about the way the book has come together. And I have to say, this might be my favorite heroine yet. (Don’t tell the others.) Victoria Slade is definitely a force to be reckoned with, and Ford is just the guy to take her on. Oh, and did I mention that this is how I envision Ford?



So, those are the details. Title is SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER, and the book will be out next May.  The Berkley art department is working on the cover now, so I’ll share that as soon as I have it, and an excerpt, too. (But first I need to finish the book–ha.)

And now for the giveaway! To celebrate the “official announcement” of SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER, I’m giving away five copies of LOVE IRRESISTIBLY, the book in which we first met our intrepid investigative journalist hero, Ford Dixon. Winners can choose either a signed paperback or a Kindle/Nook e-book. To enter, simply leave a comment below. The giveaway is international, and will remain open until 9pm CST on Thursday, August 21. Please comment only once.

Good luck!

  3. Alice Powell

    Oh no—-no FBI continuation? But then I read further and was really happy to read what the next book will be about and I Loved Ford Dixon. The only thing is I am so upset I have to wait so long for the new book. Rereading your last one for the 3rd time. You are my favorite writer…. But I guess it is my excuse to re read about Ford in Brooke’s book again…..even though I have read all your books about 5 times each. You made my day once again. Thank you!

    How about changing the name ‘FBI/U.S. Attorney series’ to ‘Chicago Justice series’ or something similar?
    Anyway, this is great news – finally I no longer have to bug you on twitter :)
    A hero that looks like Henry Cavill? Heck yeah! I’ll just re-read your books whilst waiting for Suddenly One Summer. And maybe I’ll win one physical book from this giveaway so that I can meet Ford on paper.
    Already looking forward to reading an excerpt once you’re allowed to share one!

  12. Margil

    I literally jumped up and down for a solid minute to get the excitement out of me (which really didn’t take any of the excitement out) and calm me down because aaaaaaaagggh A STANDALONE BOOK AFTER HOW MANY YEARS THIS IS MAKING ME SO EXCITED THANK YOU JESUS FOR JULIE JAMES AND HER BOOKS!!

  13. Suzi

    My favorite books still remain to date JTSMA and PMP – the ones which aren’t part of the FBI/US Attorney series – which is not to say I don’t like them heck they are better than most books out there…I think that I just preferred them a lot more for some reason – possibly the characters…


  14. Rebe

    oooo, a brother looking out for his sister! I can’t wait!

  15. Leslie

    Perfect! I’m unpacking after a move and I can’t find Love Irresistibly. Winning a new copy will be the best way to make the lost one reappear. Then I’ll give the old one away to create more interest in the new book.

  40. Alice Powell

    Darn, I was so hoping for a continuation on the FBI series but then when I read on I was really happy – the downside is—I have to wait months for this book. I am just rereading your last book for the 3rd time. I love your books and I am looking forward to Ford’s story. As usual, before your new one comes out I will be reading Love Irresistibly again to refresh my memory. You are by far my favorite author.

    Yeah! Ford definitely caught my attention in LI. I loved his take on the causal dating rules (and to Brooke publishing the article on her FB page). I just wish we didn’t have to wait until May 2015 for it to come out. Can’t you write a little faster? ;)

  54. Alison Blatman

  57. Jessica Hughes

    Awesome! I’m also happy we now know Ford’s profession. That he was successful was made clear in “Love Irresistibly” but there was nothing about what he did. Also, hoping to learn more about Ford’s mysterious family. Good luck with the ending.

  184. Sandy

    Ford Ford Ford!! I cannot wait!! SQUEEEEE!!

  185. Melanie S.

    Seriously, when I read it wasn’t part of the FBI /U.S. Attorney series, I was a wee bit bummed until I read who the hero was. Ford! YAY!!!! And also, who you picture the hero to look like. Henry Cavill. I approve. Whole. Heartedly.
    So…May 2015. That is just too long of a wait. I don’t know how I can possibly wait that long.

  186. Divya

    Like all of your novels, I know I won’t be able to put this down until I read the end. And I will most likely reread it again and again. Your novels are all on my keeper shelf.

  230. Sharlene Wegner

    I love your inspiration picture! Henry makes a great hero! LOL!

  231. library addict

    I appreciate your reasons for saying it won’t be part of the FBI/US Attorney series, but since the hero is someone we met in that series I think I will still code it as such when I buy the book. Looking forward to reading it.

  232. Yvonne Valenzuela

    Ford. Dixon. *thud*
    So excited for this story!

  233. Alex

    Not panicking (that would only happen if there wasn’t going to be a book). Love Irresistibly is my favorite of the FBI/US Attorneys and I’m so happy to have Ford’s story. Neighbors? I love it! Do I get a cookie for being the first to add it to Goodreads? SO excited!

  234. Kerri Fowler

    I can’t wait for it to come out, I love all of your books!!! Keep up the good work :-D

  235. Jastine

    OMG! I cannot wait anymore, I’ve been dying to read your next book and it would be a plus that the hero would be coming from my favorite book in the series! :)

  236. dina

  237. Des

    I wholeheartedly approve of your Henry visual. This shall help me get through these next few months. I’m excited that Ford gets his own story! He’s been waiting very patiently. Is it May yet?

    Nine months until we get Ford’s story! I feel like a newly pregnant woman anxiously awaiting the arrival of the baby… minus the growing a water melon in my body part. Thanks for all of the laughs and swoons with your books. Can’t wait for the next one. From a happy reader living in Kenya.

  272. Anna Rhodes
