The Red Door Inn

Twenty-two years ago my mom introduced me to a TV miniseries about a red-headed orphan from the Canadian maritimes.

Fifteen years ago I read Anne of Green Gables (and the following books by L.M. Montgomery) for the first time.

Five years ago I made my first trip to Prince Edward Island.

Now I’ve written a series set on my favorite place on earth–the red shores of PEI. And I’m so excited to share the cover of book 1, The Red Door Inn, with you!

 Red Door Inn Cover

A bit about The Red Door Inn (available March 1, 2016, which is really only like 9 months away):

Marie Carrington is running from a host of bad memories. Broke and desperate, she’s hoping to find safety and sanctuary on Prince Edward Island, where she reluctantly agrees to help decorate a renovated bed-and-breakfast before it opens for prime tourist season.

Seth Sloane didn’t move three thousand miles to work on his uncle’s B&B so he could babysit a woman with a taste for expensive antiques and a bewildering habit of jumping every time he brushes past her. He came to help restore the old Victorian–and to forget about the fiancée who broke his heart.

The only thing Marie and Seth agree on is that getting the Red Door Inn ready to open in just a couple months will take everything they’ve got. Can these two wounded souls find hope, healing, and perhaps a bit of romance on this beautiful island?

Step into the Red Door Inn, a lovely home away from home tucked along the fabled north shore of Prince Edward Island. It’s a place where the wounded come to heal, the broken find forgiveness, and the lonely find a family. Won’t you stay for the season?

 

I can’t wait! And I hope you’ll share my glee! Feel free to add to your wishlist, tell a friend, or even pre-order. 🙂

Friday Favorite – Watching dreams become reality

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to visit Prince Edward Island. Not familiar with PEI?

It’s a little island on the Atlantic shore of Canada, which holds some of the most beautiful shores in the world.

And it’s where one of my favorite books/movies is set. Anne of Green Gables may be the most famous export from the island, and it’s the reason that I’ve always wanted to visit.

And now I am!!!

Years ago I promised my mom that I’d take her to Prince Edward Island when I sold my first book. Well, it turns out that I didn’t make much on my first book. So then my promise turned into “after the second book.” Well, guess what’s coming out this August? My second book!

This spring we both renewed are passports, and this week, I bought us tickets! We’re going to PEI!!!! I even reserved us a suite at a beautiful Victorian bed and breakfast, and we’re going to have a ball! I can’t wait!

I mean, I have to. We’re not going for several months, but still … I’m so excited! I promise there will be pictures and general joyous celebrations. Watch out, Anne! Here we come!
