What’s going on in my writing life? I’ve had a busy few months! See what’s in store for my readers next! WHERE PETALS FALL, and the SNOW SISTERS SERIES!
WHERE PETALS FALL
On the surface Junie Olson’s life looks idyllic, from her handsome husband and beautiful daughter to her successful business, the bakery she always dreamed of opening. But in the past few months her world has slowly unraveled. Her precocious child is withdrawing, showing unexplainable signs of emotional regression, a condition that frays the bonds of Junie’s once impenetrable marriage. When her father dies suddenly of a heart attack, Junie packs up her daughter and goes home to help her mother. Her homecoming stirs up memories of the nightmare she thought she had put behind her, the disappearance of her childhood friend, Ellen. Haunted by recurring memories of what happened on that fateful day, Junie must gather the courage to revisit her past and untangle the secrets surrounding her missing friend, and the trauma that has caused her little girl to climb back into herself. As the pieces come together on the event that shook her small town, and at the risk of losing everyone she loves, Junie will question everything she thought she could rely on and everyone she thought she knew.
WHERE PETALS FALL is a gripping and emotional novel with an undercurrent of suspense, featuring a determined mother whose world slowly comes apart around her. Where Petals Fall will appeal to fans of Lisa Scottoline’s Save Me or Jodi Picoult’s Salem Falls, who love an emotional and gripping read. They will root for Junie as they follow her transition into an indomitable heroine who must reconcile what she discovers about her husband and family’s tragic past, and find a way to put the pieces of her family back together and carry on.
“A beautiful story about love and self-growth and finding that balance to happiness. Powerfully written and riveting from beginning to end.”
National bestselling author, Jane Porter
SISTERS IN LOVE
Book #1 in the Snow Sister Series
Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.
Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best.
When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn’t the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.
SISTERS IN LOVE is a light, uplifting work of women’s fiction, and will resonate with readers who enjoy emotional journeys of the heart with strong heroines and handsome heroes. Readers of books by Jane Porter and Beth Kendrick will probably enjoy Danica and Blake’s story.
SISTERS IN BLOOM
Snow Sister Series Book #2
Kaylie Snow is excited about her pregnancy and madly in love with her fiancé, indie film festival director, Chaz Crew. As her body changes, and the singing gigs she once commanded are handed to women who fit into the sleek, sexy outfits that she once wore, Kaylie’s insecurities rise to the forefront. Watching her older sister Danica glide through a major career change and a new relationship with the grace of a ballerina, and their newly-single mother embrace the dating scene with fervor, only increases Kaylie’s discomfort.
Having always been the fun, flirty, pretty sister, Kaylie’s burgeoning belly, hormone infused emotions, and faltering career, sends her into an unexpected identity crisis. With her baby shower around the corner and her fiance’s big event just weeks away, the pressure is on for Kaylie to pull herself together—or lose those that she loves most while trying.
SISTERS IN BLOOM is a testament to the bond of sisters, the strength of women, and the pains and delights that accompany motherhood. A book for every mother, sister, and daughter, SISTERS IN BLOOM will resonate with readers who love to explore family dramas.
