J.L. Crosswhite | Author-Reader Match: OVER HER HEAD

June 11, 2021

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match,” where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present J.L.Crosswhite!


Christian romantic suspense with her latest release, OUT OF RANGE, book 2 of the In the Shadow series. Book 3, OVER HER HEAD, will hit the shelves on June 21. Because when you grow up in the shadow of a hero as a sibling, can you find your own adventures as well?


California-native author who’s spent significant time in the Midwest seeks readers for a page-turning novel about clothing designer and sister of the groom Kim Taylor, who is planning the girls’ adventure and spa weekend before the wedding to prove to her brother she’s not the flighty flake he thinks she is. But when the bride’s sister has other ideas, a forest fire burns out their adventure, and a stalker sets his eye on Kim, can she find strength and comfort in fun guy Matthew Ellis? He blew his first chance with her but he’s desperately trying to make things right. When her life is on the line, can he come through for her?

Ideal reader match:

Must love characters who:

  • Get themselves in over their heads and have to find a way out
  • Have good intentions with not always good results
  • Are ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary situations
  • A part of a group of friends and family who support and challenge each other
  • Confront their fears and weaknesses (some of them, anyway)
  • Are often confused about love and relationships but keep trying anyway

Must be willing to:

  • Lose a little sleep and forget about the world around you for a minute (or ten!) while turning pages, sipping your favorite drink, and curling up in a comfy spot.

What to expect if we’re compatible:

  • Page-turning books with a strong romantic story.
  • Opportunities to connect with Jennifer via her website, reader’s group, social media, and updates.
  • Insider Updates with sneak peeks, short stories, and other Insider-first goodies

OFF THE MAP by J.L. Crosswhite

In the Shadow Book 1

Off the Map

She thought it was a road trip adventure…
…He figured it was the perfect opportunity.
But her stalker was on the road to retaliation, and she was his destination.

Relocation specialist Allie Ellis’s neatly ordered life is turned upside down by the reappearance of her old teen crush. And somehow he’s been recruited to join her family’s planned road trip.

Detective Steve Collins never got over the girl he let get away in high school. Now they are thrown together by mutual friends.

And he’s not about to let her go without a second chance.

But a thwarted felon has mapped out plans of his own, marking more than caution signs around each bend.

Have Allie and Collins found each other only to discover another detour? A fatal one, over a cliff?

Off the Map, the first book in the new spin-off series In the Shadow, is Christian romantic suspense at its best. If you loved the Hometown Heroes series, you will love this page-turner because this trip packs excitement to the final page.

In the Shadow Book 2

Out of Range

It’s her chance to prove she’s good enough.

It’s his chance to prove he’s more than just a fun guy.

Is it their time to find love, or does he have deadly competition?

Clothing designer and sister of the groom Kim grew up in the shadow of a perfect big brother. She’s determined to prove she can juggle the demands of launching her career’s biggest break while handling the details of her brother’s big day. The last thing she needs are distractions, like good-time Matthew or a crazy admirer who is growing creepier by the minute

Matthew fell in love with Kim on their road trip. His humor is normally an asset but backfired with Kim. He screwed up, but she’s the best thing that’s happened to him. Will his fun-guy reputation keep Kim from seeing who he really is? Will his plan to win her back be romantic or a disruption?

Can Kim find strength and comfort in Matthew? When her life is on the line, will he come through for her? Can they figure out a way to make their differences work, or will they even get a chance?

Out of Range, the second book in the In the Shadow series, is Christian romantic suspense at its best.

You will love this page-turner because when love is on the line, no one wants to be Out of Range.

OVER HER HEAD by J.L. Crosswhite

In the Shadow Book 3

Over Her Head

She’s working on a new start…
…He’s better with computers than people.
Can they build a relationship that fits their new life?

Fresh-out-of-cosmetology-school Jessica and whiz-software-engineer Austin have been thrown together by mutual friends. They even escaped a wildfire together.

But do they have something more than friendship?

Maybe a singles’ camping trip will make their future clear.

When they encounter someone who needs their help, the relaxing weekend away becomes anything but. As the danger mounts and the challenges reveal who they truly are, will it pull them together or push them apart… for good?

You will get lost in Over Her Head because the biggest adventure is falling in love.
