Booksigning in Boonsboro!

What are you doing this weekend? I have an idea! Come see me in Boonsboro, MD!


I’ll be signing copies of the first two books in my Brides of Blueberry Cove series this Saturday, December 5th, at Turn the Page Bookstore in the beautiful little Civil War town of Boonsboro, Md along with Nora Roberts, Sonali Dev, Tiffany Snow, and a host of other authors!


The whole town gets into the holiday spirit that day, with lots of other special events happening all up and down Main Street.  Come and enjoy this warmer-than-usual winter weather and have a happening small town kind of day!

Too long of a road trip? Hop on over to their website and take part in they Virtual Booksigning!  Simply shop online for the books being signed that day. Purchase and tell them how you want the books signed, we’ll take care of it that day, then the shop will ship them out to you right after the event is over. I know! Fabulous and easy way to stuff a number of stockings all in one click!

I really hope to see some of you there!

Happy Thanksgiving!



Happy Thanksgiving, from my table to yours! (Yes, it’s all about the homemade pie here.)

I’m so very grateful for your support, your kindness, and the warm and friendly community you’ve brought to my life! Without you, I wouldn’t be able to work at something I love so much.

Thank you, each and every one!  Group hug!!

There’s no place like seaside Blueberry Cove, Maine, at Christmas—and there’s nothing like a wedding, the warmth of the holidays, and an old crush, to create the perfect new start…

Interior designer Fiona McCrae has left fast-paced Manhattan to move back home to peaceful Blueberry Cove. But she’s barely arrived before she’s hooked into planning her big sister Hannah’s Christmas wedding—in less than seven weeks. The last thing she needs is for her first love, Ben Campbell, to return to neighboring Snowflake Bay…

As kids, Fiona was the bratty little sister Ben mercilessly teased—while pining after Hannah. But Fi never once thought of Ben like a brother. And that hasn’t changed. Except Fi is all grown up. Will Ben notice her now?  More importantly, with her life in a jumble, should he? Or might the romance of the occasion, the spirit of the season, and the gifts of time ignite a long-held flame for many Christmases to come…

Something old might just become something new… 

Includes a DIY wedding cake recipe!

“Kauffman’s stories show that the bravery to reach for a connection is all we need to discover joy.”  –Publishers Weekly on Sandpiper Island

“Charming characters, emotion galore, a small town—you’re going to love Donna Kauffman!” —Lori Foster

I’m celebrating over at USA Today with a fun “6 Questions With…” Interview.  Check it out! (You’ll make my parrot very  happy if you do.  He’s such a celebrity now. :)

Happy reading!
