Fireworks and Frenemies is out todayJun 28, 2022

It's finally here! Check out the latest Holiday Beach romance, and read about Mac and Lori's romance - from their shocking beginnings to their explosive end! (Yes, those are some hints. Nobody ever accused me of being subtle.)

Bob “Mac” Mackenzie has finally started construction on the house of his dreams. The lakeside paradise is everything he imagined, with the exception of the nightmare next door. The pretty project manager apologizes for the inconveniences her own build is causing, but the accidents keep happening.

The Holiday Beach mansion she designed was supposed to be the diamond in architect Lori Baker’s crown, but instead she’s wearing dirt on her face. Impossible clients are driving her to the brink, and a few initial misunderstandings with the handsome neighbor have turned every interaction into all-out war.

When Lori is fired after she tries to fix some of the damage the owners cause to Mac’s property, she finds herself stranded and jobless. With nothing to go home to, Holiday Beach could be the perfect place to start over on her own Independence Day. All she needs is a chance to showcase her skills—but her best shot is with her worst enemy.

A Million Love Notes hits e-readers todayApr 26, 2022

I'm thrilled to introduce you to Hopewell's newest power couple - country music sensation Tyler Lawson and award-winning songwriter Scarlet St. James.

Of course, readers already know them as a former waitress and a ranch hand turned millionaires. Let me tell you, their transformations from rags to riches was had to share because Scarlett is unbelievably shy. It took me over a year to convince her to let me tell you their love story.

But I think it's more than worth the wait.

** 

Scarlett St. James grew up poor and learned to dream small. After hitting the jackpot, her quiet secret identity as the songwriter behind Tyler Lawson’s country songs has been exposed. She’s happy to share her music, but when her first public appearance ends in disaster, she decides small town life is good enough.

Winning the lottery means Tyler Lawson can bail out his family’s ranch and pursue his country music dreams with a clear conscious. But the closer he gets to stardom in Nashville, the further he finds himself from Hopewell and Scarlett. She deserves to stand with him in the spotlight—but to get her there, he must prove that he means every word of the love songs he sings to her on stage.

It's available everywhere! (And if you don't have an e-reader, you can ask your library to buy a copy.)

Don't forget to add it to your Goodreads To-Read list!

Happy EasterApr 17, 2022

Spring is a wonderful time of new growth and rebirth. And chocolate and bunnies and beautiful bonnets. I hope today is a breath of fresh air in your life!

 

Get lucky!Mar 17, 2022

My mom was a stickler about wearing green on St. Patrick's Day. She also had a small shamrock plant, and every March 17th, she had us bring a small cutting to our teacher in elementary school. Even funnier - we don't have a drop of Irish blood on either side of the family!

But have some fun today and try something green. A spinach or kale smoothie, a zucchini fritter, some pistachio cake! I personally don't recommend a green beer, but that's just me. May today be a lucky one for you - in business, at home, and in love! (And in reading.)

Happy St. Valentine's DayFeb 14, 2022

Treat yourself and your loved one to something special today. A meal, a foot rub, a funny text. Spread the love, my friends!

Happy Groundhog Day!Feb 2, 2022

Happy Groundhog Day! (Yes, I know I'm repeating myself. That's part of what makes it funny.)

While some people celebrate this as a day to get news of a potentially early spring, we in Winnipeg know we're never going to get it six weeks early. But we can have some fun with it. For me, this day is not complete without Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell and the hilarious film "Groundhog Day." If you haven't seen it yet, you're only 29 years behind the times, and I still recommend it.
