To me, spring is strawberry season and vice versa. I’ve always felt more alive with the awakening of the world from a long winter’s nap. I love God’s creative glory in nature, flowers, animals, and strawberries. I smell the sweet smell and relish a bowl of berries with sugar and a good old-fashioned homemade strawberry shortcake. A few weeks ago, we attended the Plant City Strawberry Festival because I love the arts, crafts, and berries. I came home with a flat of the fresh fruit, and I literally ate a half of flat for breakfast each morning that week. The other half is in my freezer, and I’m thinking of making the type of shortcake I used to make when my children were young. They all loved it.
I had such fun writing Last Resort and using berry season and a strawberry field as partial settings for a stalker. Readers loved the villain, but it turned out to be a love/hate relationship, and they wanted him to get his just dessert. The hero ends up getting shortcake first, but the stalker gets his without the sweetness and whipped cream in the end. Need a good read to take you back to spring, flowers blooming, and the smell of fresh, ripe, berries while keeping you turning the pages? Don’t miss this one.
Christian romantic suspense. Best seller. Pursued by an ex-fiancé, shattered dreams, an awesome God, and a cowboy farmer. There’s only one place she can turn . . . There’s only one last resort.
Set in Bridal Wreath, Florida, a fictional town, Key West, the Panhandle, and Plant City, Florida. Faith is stalked and forced to search her conflicted heart. In a battle of love, loss, and raging jealousy, she strives to build a new life with peace and contentment.
After a disastrous engagement, Faith flees the city to return to the country home where she grew up, looking for peace and solitude. She’s not looking for love. That is, until she meets Matt Allen, a neighboring cowboy farmer. Faith’s reaction to Matt stuns her, and plans to insulate herself are forgotten. She gets as lost in Matt’s eyes as she would in unknown woods.
Complicating matters, a series of incidents too strange to be coincidence begin happening, convincing Faith that someone wants her gone. When she doesn’t budge, the incidents escalate, forcing her to decide whom she can trust. If she puts her faith and heart in Matt’s hands, will it be enough? Or will she have to go against her stance on guns and pick one up before it’s too late?
What early Readers Had to Say…
“B. J. Robinson’s Last Resort is an inspirational romantic suspense story that keeps you hanging on the edge of your seat — both to see if the villain is overcome and to see if Matt and Faith end up together. You don’t want to miss this one with its twists; it’s a great read!”
Deb Haggerty, Author and Speaker
“The warm, sweet romance, yet insightful story, will touch your heart with its simplicity and charm.”

Just when you think it’s another church supper, the hero makes his entrance…and what an entrance it is. He crashes in and winds up with strawberry shortcake all over him. Then there’s the guy with the gun. Creepy. He turns out to be a stalker who relishes the hunt. Scary.
This is a novel where the reader connects with the heroine and hero, as would be expected, but there’s also connection with the villain. This is a unique take on how to present a villain and an inventive one.
