  • 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. 🙂

    The Cover of A Promise to Protect

    I’m beyond excited to share with y’all the cover of my December book release–A PROMISE TO PROTECT.

    A bit about the book:
    Ashley Sawyer has been the director of a battered women’s shelter for three years, so she’s no stranger to dealing with threats. But when she helps a young woman disappear, the threats become more intense than she’s ever experienced. Navy SEAL Matt Waterstone is happy to check on his best friend’s little sister, certain he can take care of the threat. But as Matt and Ashley search for the source of the threats, they uncover a plot more sinister than they ever imagined . . . and a love they never expected.

    If the cover–or awesome author *nudge, nudge*–has you interested in preordering it, here are links to some stores where you can do just that.

    Teaser Tuesdays – The Disappearance of Devin Keating

    teaser_tuesdays1MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event

    Here are the rules:
    * Grab your current read
    * Let the book fall open to a random page
    * Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12
    *You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
    * Please avoid spoilers!

    This week’s teaser is:
    “His feet pounded the ground, but it seemed to take forever for him to reach the entrance. Breaths coming quickly and shoulders rising and falling heavily, he yanked open the door and darted down the hallway passing one, two, three doors.”
    – Okay, so I’m totally cheating here! This is a couple lines from my new work in progress, tentatively titled The Disappearance of Devin Keating. It’s about all I have time to read this week, as I’m busy working on my first round of edits.
