Wishing on the Starts, Book 2

Can wishing on a star make Christmas wishes come true?

Chloe Sweet, a small town bakery owner and single mom to Sophie, has one wish on her Christmas list this year: to win the local Christmas tree contest so she can purchase a new oven for the bakery. Her business depends on it. Chloe loves this time of year, despite the fact that the man she loved and thought she’d marry, left her alone and pregnant on Christmas Eve. He never said why. Never contacted her. Then again, she had never told him about Sophie. So, she lived her life and created a business for herself. Now, after all these years, Tyler has returned to Misty River. She decides it’s best to avoid him and focus on providing a nice Christmas for her daughter. But, things don’t go as planned. Sophie has asked for the impossible: a daddy for Christmas! The only way Chloe can accomplish making her daughter’s wish come true is to tell Tyler her secret and hope he’ll want to stay.

Tyler Anderson, a talent photojournalist and world traveller, has returned to Misty River to find a facility for his ailing grandfather, the only family he has left in the world. For six years, Tyler has avoided Christmas and the small town because it held too many painful memories. The woman he had loved and planned on marrying betrayed him and he did the only thing a man with a broken heart would do: leave town. He figures it shouldn’t be too difficult. He was only in town for a few weeks and once he had his grandfather settled in a new home, he’d leave. But, his heart has other plans. He’s falling in love again with the woman who shattered his heart. It doesn’t help that Sophie has him tied around her little finger. He doesn’t understand why he has such strong feelings for this sprite of a girl. The more time he spends with them, makes it harder for him to leave Misty River.

Dreaming of Sunsets, Book 3

What happens when two best friends fall in love? Combustion!

Jamie Sommers, manager of Jamie’s Jukebox Diner, feels lost and abandoned now that her two besties have found love, one of whom is getting married in a couple of weeks! Jamie’s love-life is tragic and the little town of Misty River has a tremendous lack of eligible bachelors. Stressed to the limit, she takes a well-deserved vacation before her friend’s wedding and rents a cabin along Misty River. All she wants is to read, drink some wine, and sleep. Sounds like heaven!

Brett Thompson, a dedicated firefighter, has come home for his sister, Bree’s, wedding. Although his family expects him to stay at the farm, he’s decided to enjoy his vacation in a cabin along the river. After a stressful few months at the firehouse, all he wants is some quiet time to do some fishing, kayaking and sleeping. Sounds like heaven!

Neither one expects to bump into the other at the cabin. When they realize a mistake has been made with their reservations, and they have no choice but to go home or stay in the same cabin, they do what friends do best—hang out together.

Jamie and Brett have always considered themselves off-limits from one another when it came to dating. They are friends first and foremost but, as they spend more time together, neither one can deny what’s happening and neither one knows how to tell the other how they truly feel.
