Candice studied at the Institute of Children’s Literature at age sixteen. She lives in Indiana with her husband and three sons in a restored farmhouse overtaken by books. When she’s not tending to her chickens, snuggling with her Great Pyrenees, or sharing her passion for reading with students as an elementary school librarian, she’s working on a new story. Candice writes both contemporary and historical romance—where the past and present collide with faith.

Full of intrigue and historical detail, Patterson brings to life the little known women’s SPARs who deserve to have their own story told as part of the Greatest Generation. Drama and faith seamlessly blend together with just the right amount of romance to delight WWII fans.

In Saving Mrs. Roosevelt, Candice Sue Patterson has crafted a homefront story of WWII that will satisfy readers of Lynn Austin and Amy Lynn Green. Filled with intrigue and drama, the hero and heroine must work together to infiltrate a spy ring that is determined to harm Mrs. Roosevelt. Along the way you’ll enjoy the setting and supporting characters. This is an engaging story with a layer of romance that I enjoyed.
