From her free-spirited mother, Sunny Goodwin learned the value of peace, love, and Jerry Garcia. The inheritance from the father she never knew? That’s a little more complicated . . .

 Sunny never expected to find herself owning a centuries old silk mill in the shadow of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains . . . or becoming a half-sister to a ten-year-old named Bailey. Once the shock subsides, she plans to cash in and head back home. But the overgrown greenhouse she finds on the property calls out to the gardener in her, and she senses Bailey’s need for nurturing too . . .

And someone else is making it hard for Sunny to leave: Sawyer Hartwell, an Iraq War hero who wants to make the old mill a creative hub for the artisans of Blue Hollow Falls . . . and wants Sunny to share his vision, and his life. But sexy as this ex-soldier may be, she’s not sure she’s ready to give love a chance . . .

Hello, Savannah!

I’ve been exploring the lovely historic city of Savannah, Georgia this past week, doing research for THE SWEET LIFEa spin off series to my popular Cupcake Club books.  What a beautiful city this is!

DSCN6992

I love the Spanish moss draped live oaks that shade the residential streets, every single one of the twenty-two squares in the historic district, each with it’s own unique little park, the endless eye candy of architecture on every street, from the homes, to the churches, to the businesses.  The keyhole gardens, the River Walk, the lush green expanse of Forsythe Park, with the grand old live oak trees standing sentry on all sides. I could walk these streets for days and never get tired of the view, finding some new little treasure with each stroll.

IMG_7905

Today, I wanted to share a little about my stay at the beautifully restored Galloway House. Originally built in 1895 and located in the Victorian District, just south of Forsythe Park, the owners have done a remarkable job in restoring it to new glory.  When they purchased it, the property was boarded up, long neglected, the grounds gone to weed.  Twelve years ago, a crew of 20-25 workers began a twenty-one month odyssey to fully restore the home and carriage house.  The owners live on the premises, and have turned parts of the house and the carriage house into an inn, with four different fully detailed apartments. (And, just so ya know, no, this is not some kind of paid endorsement.  This place has gone on to win an avalanche of awards, deservedly so, and is booked up well in advance.  They definitely don’t need my endorsement.  But they’re getting it anyway. :)  I just loved the place and thought I’d share a bit of my stay with you all.

I stayed in the loft, which you can see at the top of the place in the photo above.  The dormer window there marks the front of the loft, and it runs, shotgun, all the way to the back of the house.  I wish I had before photos of the other apartments, but I do have them for my lovely little loft nest.   Check this out!

IMG_7907

This was the loft space after cleaning out the junk, in preparation for renovation.  That’s the dormer window there at the rear of the photo.

IMG_7908

Looking back the other direction, this is the door at the rear of the loft space.

Look at it today!

IMG_7732

The view as you step inside the door.  That’s the dormer window at the rear of the loft.

Looking back at the rear door.

IMG_7733

A peek behind the screen at the bedroom and the cozy dormer nook.  Isn’t that amazing!  (I love before and after pictures, don’t you?)   I took these photos, but they are identical to how the place looks on their website.  I love it when a place lives up to (or, in this case, surpasses) its advertising.

DSCN6973

Here’s a little peek at the Carriage House and potting shed, located in the keyhole garden behind the house.  The Carriage House has two apartments, one on each floor.  And check out the garden!

DSCN6974

Once nothing more than a dirt patch, now a lush, tropical little paradise.

DSCN6975

You can’t see in this photo, but there’s a little spot tucked away to the left with two garden benches, perfect for a little break.  All in all, the perfect little hideaway for this writer.

Now you know where the first chapters of the new series were written.  Fun!

If you want to learn more about Galloway House (and see photos of their sumptuous other apartments) you can check them out here.

I checked out yesterday (sob!) so I could head down to sunny Florida to see my folks for a few days (yay!)  I’ll be heading back to Savannah in a few days to continue my research adventure.

 More to come…

Nestled on the Maine coast, Blueberry Cove is a peaceful retreat compared to the excitement of exotic cities and foreign lands. But it’s also the best place in the world for one woman to find her heart’s true home… 

Kerry McCrae’s wanderlust has taken her to parts of the globe most people have only glimpsed in pictures. So why is tending bar at the family pub in Blueberry Cove after her Uncle Fergus’s heart attack an easier adjustment than she expected? And why hasn’t she left once Fergus is back on his feet? When tall, tanned Cooper Jax walks through the door, she knows the answer in a heartbeat…

Born and raised deep in Australia’s outback, Cooper never planned to leave the wild country he loves. But after almost a year of having Kerry—with her sparkling eyes and outrageous stories— on his cattle station, Cooper was stunned when she left. Suddenly home wasn’t the same without her. Making his way to Blueberry Cove to find her is a risk, but Cooper is counting on the passionate connection between them to convince her that the only place either of them need to be is together…

Let the honeymoon begin…
