I can’t tell you how much the reviews from readers and critics alike have meant to me.  Here’s a lovely “5 Ribbon” review from Diana Smith at Romance Junkies:

Since I entered Blueberry Cove in the Bachelors of Blueberry Cove series, I have loved this small town. Now returning with the Brides series, I am so glad to be back. I can feel the love as soon as I open the book.

Hannah McCrae is coming home for her big brother Police Chief Logan McCrae’s wedding. In truth, she has come home to stay but no one needs to know about her troubles until after the wedding. Hannah left the Cove to be a big time lawyer in D.C., but things have gone south and she has come home to heal. When Hannah runs a stop sign that wasn’t there the last time she was home and misses broadsiding a pickup, then goes in the ditch and hits a sign, she meets Calder Blue who was driving the truck, and the man who comes to her rescue.

Calder Blue is from the St. Croix River Blues so he has never been to the Cove, where the other side of the family live. They have been feuding with his side of the family for decades. Calder is a contractor and was asked to come to the Cove to talk to the man who wants to build a Yacht Club there. Calder finds himself drawn to Hannah and when things start happening that implicate Calder in arson, he decides to enlist Hannah’s help as his lawyer.

Hannah has sworn off men until she can get her life back in order but there is something about Calder that excites her. They are working together to find the arsonist so they can clear Calder’s name and they get to know each other better.

I am happy to be back in Blueberry Cove where the community pulls together to help each other and the atmosphere is just slow and easy in this lovely little town. I started reading Donna Kauffman’s books with her first series in Blueberry Cove and I am glad to be back for this series. Having lived in a tiny town in the Midwest, originally, I can relate to the nosy townsfolk and laugh at all the antics that occur. Small town America is somewhere I want to go to as often as possible, even if just in a book. I give 5 Blue Ribbons on Romance Junkies’ website because of all the love and the feeling of returning home SEA GLASS SUNRISE portrays. I recommend this novel to anyone who likes feel good books set in a coastal setting and in a small town. You will feel the love as soon as you read the first page.”

Wedding Cake Bookmark #1 copy

The reviews are coming in and they have been truly gratifying and inspiring.  I can’t tell you how much it means that readers are enjoying my work.  Here’s what The Library Journal had to say about Sea Glass Sunrise: 

“Back in Maine for her brother’s wedding and to rebuild her life quietly after a humiliating end to a disastrous relationship, brilliant DC attorney Hannah ­McCrae finds herself drawn into a 100-year-old blood feud while also attracted to a rugged contractor she knows is not her type and may be on the wrong end of a development project. Calder Blue has his own agenda, and when his great-uncle’s dock goes up in flames and Calder is the chief suspect, he needs Hannah on his side—and not just as his lawyer. Sexual tension crackles between the pair as they work against time to track down a villain and finally give into their feelings and let go of the past. VERDICT Sweet, sexy, and sigh-worthy, this small-town charmer takes readers back to tiny Blueberry Cove and launches a linked miniseries that promises to be as entertaining, character-rich, and emotionally engaging as its predecessor, The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove. Kauffman (Sandpiper Island) lives in Virginia near DC.”

SEA GLASS SUNRISE is now On Sale!

It’s Big Happy Release Day here!

SEA GLASS SUNRISE , the first book in my Brides of Blueberry Cove miniseries is finally on the shelves.  Here’s a peek at the cover and book blurb:

seaglass_300

In seaside Blueberry Cove, Maine, friends are just another word for family, and big-city politics take a backseat to local pride. But the real treasure on these shores is always love…

 

When D.C. lawyer Hannah McRae heads home for her brother’s wedding, she’s dragging a lot of baggage along with her—and she doesn’t mean suitcases. Betrayed personally, and humiliated professionally, the last thing she wants is a new man. That’s fine with square-jawed, rugged contractor Calder Blue. He and Hannah may be wildly attracted to each other, but all he wants is to complete the town’s hotly contested new yacht club and keep his firm afloat. Yet thanks to old resentments and new feuds, day after day, the pair wind up tangled in each other’s business—and maybe soon in each other’s arms.

 

Every bride needs something “blue”…
