Newest Releases!

Next up in the Chapel Springs series is The Wishing Season (Dec 9, 2014), PJ McKinley's story! Many adventures await the spirited, recently-graduated culinary student. Here's a peek at what's in store for PJ:

When an eccentric resident puts her ancestral home up for grabs, PJ McKinley realizes that her dream of opening a Bed and Breakfast may become a reality. But a swoonworthy contractor with a heart of gold soon stands in the way of her dream.

I've been dancing the happy dance as reviews have trickled in!

Publisher's Weekly said The Wishing Season is a "...sparkling contemporary tale of competing ambitions, wounded personalities, and powerful attraction."

NYT bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne said The Wishing Season is "a beautiful story – poignant and heartwarming, filled with delightful characters and intense emotion."

Winter Brides (Nov 25, 2014) includes three wedding novellas. I teamed up with the talented Deborah Raney and Betsy St. Amant for this bridal-themed compilation. My novella, "A December Bride," is part of the Chapel Springs series, so you don't want to miss it! 

What started as a whim turned into an accidental—and very public—engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season—for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?


Two of my previously out of print novellas are available on ebook--and bargain priced! 

A foolish stunt in high school left Brianna VanAllen questioning her self worth for the past five years. She didn't expect to dig up those painful memories when she returned home for her high school reunion. But, paired with Jake Volez on a project at her parents' ranch, Brianna must face the issue of forgiveness. Will she have the courage to put her heart at risk again?


Callie Andersen never expected to be taking a solo honeymoon in Maui. But she just wants to lick her wounds after being jilted at the altar. Alex Harrigan, activities director for Harrigan's Cove, knows the best bandage for a broken heart is activity. And when Callie notes the lack of children's activities, he's happy to put her work gathering ideas. But when he starts to lose his heart, he wonders if he will soon be nursing his own wounds.
