Starfish Moon_MM_MM[1] copy

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…

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!!
