“Halloweens in Moonbright continue to be an excellent time to start love affairs for both characters and readers in this latest collection…”
~ Kellie Tilton, Library Journal


“Three blended stories warm with romance celebrate the Halloween season in Moonbright, Maine. On the hottest day yet in Cincy, I felt a crisp breeze enwrap me as I raced through the pages, inhaled the scent of spiced lattes, savored the anise-sugar cookies from the Italian bakery, swooned as three couples fell deeply in love. I was transported to this small town rich with All Hallows’ Eve cheer, sexy coupling and laughter aplenty. A delightful read I did not want to end!” 5/5
~ Char Jones, Amazon & Goodreads Top Reviewer

The recipe for love always includes a dash of magic . . .

Every autumn, Moonbright, Maine, is the picture of charm with its piles of crisp leaves, flickering jack-o’-lanterns. . . and a touch of the sweetest kind of enchantment.

Witches, goblins, the occasional ghost—they’re all sure to be spotted at the annual Halloween parade, where adults and children alike dress in costume to celebrate Moonbright’s favorite holiday. And no place has more seasonal spirit than Bellaluna’s Bakeshop, a family business steeped in traditional recipes, welcoming warmth—and, legend has it, truly spellbinding, heart-melting treats. . .

Between good-natured Halloween tricks, frothy pumpkin lattes, and some very special baked goods, for three Moonbright residents looking for love—whether they know it or not—the spookiest thing will be how magical romance can suddenly be. . .

A Blue Hollow Falls Christmas Novella
This Christmas, small-town Blue Hollow Falls will work big holiday magic for two people who have researched everything but love . . .Avery Kent needs a project. The busy brain that earned her two PhDs before the age of eighteen is fascinated by the home she’s created with her three friends in Blue Hollow Falls, but the farm and the tearoom are running like clockwork now. As the holiday season approaches, it’s time for Avery to dive into one of her last uncharted research topics: love. Not for herself, of course; for her friend, Chey! But a closer look at the handsome young veterinarian Avery has chosen for this romantic equation has her wishing for gifts she never thought she wanted . . .

Another former child prodigy, Ben Chandler is more like Avery than she ever imagined. His intellect is a perfect match for hers—and everything else about him attracts her in ways that send delicious tingles down her spine. But a relationship? That’s something Avery will need to analyze—unless her friends can help Ben convince her that romance is more magic than science, and that a good old-fashioned kiss under the mistletoe is the perfect way to open her heart to the possibility of the greatest gift of all . . .

Featuring A Wedding in Swan Harbor

USA Today  Bestseller!

Reviews for A WEDDING IN SWAN HARBOR . . .

“I love Donna Kauffman’s writing whether it be a full-length book or a short ‘n’ sweet novella she nails it pretty much every time, and A Wedding in Swan Harbour highlights all the positives of her writing.

– Great couple
– Gorgeous setting
– Emotional depth
– Great backstories
– Likeable secondary character
– You’re always left wanting more

This may have been a short novella but it in no way lacked the emotional depth you would expect characters with these back stories to have. There is always going to be a small amount of shared grief and a level of guilt associated with moving on after a death of a life partner, especially when the person you are looking to move on with is someone who knew them almost as well as you did. Sam was stoic, patient, easy-going and just fitted with Lily, it was quite simply a perfect couple of hours reading escapism. 5 Stars!”
~ Claire’s Reviews, Claire Robinson

“The chemistry burns bright between Sam and Lily but their path is, in their minds, filled with landmines. Oh how I loved their journey! The banter between them sometimes made me laugh out loud but to me, their road to an HEA was honest and true. Yes, let’s say I loved these characters! What a refresh for my reading list. 5 stars!”
~ Gale, Bookbub

and for the collection . . .

“These were wonderful, sweet, and entertaining stories that are not to be missed. They provided a tale rich with chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters a chance at love, happiness, and a future none expected. I highly recommend the Once Upon a Wedding anthology collection to other readers. 5 stars!”
~ Eileen, Bookbub

“Donna Kauffman does not disappoint! This series has stolen my heart. 5 stars.”
~ Dena Tyndall, Bookbub reader

In the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains lies a small town with a big heart—and a chance to begin again . . .

When Hannah Montgomery buys a lavender farm in Blue Hollow Falls with three friends, she’s creating a life she never imagined—one she hopes will honor the memory of the sweet young son she tragically lost years ago. Standing on the porch of the sprawling farmhouse, looking out on row upon row of those lush purple plumes, Hannah is ready to embrace this fresh, new start . . .

Then she meets Wilson McCall. The stonemason hired to fix their crumbling chimneys and leaky roof is quieter than most folks in the Falls. Hannah’s not surprised to learn the widower struggles with his own grief. Who could blame her if she finds joy in making Will laugh again, or if she feels a poignant kinship when she sees him with his teenaged son? But her deepening friendship with Will reminds Hannah that there’s a part of her that still needs to heal—awakening a tender yearning to have a life that isn’t just good enough, but lived fully—even if that means taking risks once more . . .
