The final Chapel Springs novel releases June 9, 2015, and I can't wait to share Ryan's story with you! Here's a little sneak peak about what awaits for the oldest McKinley sibling:

Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive 2-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight into his lap.

Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.

Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Summer Harbor, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. It’s just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

Newest Release!

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."
