For me, the best books have always been the ones that are both mirrors and windows. Mirrors to show me a part of myself, and windows that afford a glimpse into another time and place. I hope my books will be mirrors and windows for you.
Coming Fall 2012. Sophie Robillard Caldwell has spent a lifetime guarding her heart.... and a life changing secret. Hoping to follow in the footsteps of the newspaperwomen she has come to admire, she returns to Hickory Ridge from Texas to revive the local paper, the Gazette. Ethan Heyward, son of a Georgia planter has come to town to build and manage Blue Smoke, a luxury resort soon to open at the top of Hickory Ridge. He, too, is harboring a secret too painful to share with anyone...even Sophie.
Available now. She’s a beautiful young widow. He’s a charming Charlestonian with a taste for adventure. Both need a place to call home.
In bookstores now. Alone and penniless following her father's death and a broken engagement, Bostonian Ada Wentworth journeys to Hickory Ridge to take a position as as lady's companion to the elderly Lillian Willis. Using the millinery skills handed down from her mother, Ada hopes to earn enough money to establish her own hat shop back east. But then she meets Wyatt Caldwell, Lillian's Texas-born nephew, and suddenly her plan seems far less simple.
