Kindergarten teacher Joy MacKenzie trusts everyone and loves her life in Pilgrim Cove. Hidden beneath her outgoing veneer, however, Joy knows true happiness will never be hers. She is unable to have children of her own. Her dreams of marriage and a family are over.

Once a foster child, photojournalist Logan Nash is back in the states after embedding with U.S. troops. A loner by choice, he trusts no one, not even himself, as he tries to become a dad to his newly adopted war dog, Ajax.

Needing a place with privacy, Logan rents the big house on the beach. Except he wasn’t expecting an upstairs neighbor…

Logan is left with little choice but to deal with exuberant Joy who creates havoc in his carefully ordered world. Joy will do almost anything to unlock Logan’s secrets and reveal the caring person behind the solitary man.

The magic of Sea View House draws them together, but only by letting go of the past can they truly find a new beginning.

Starting Overwith more writing news!

I’m delighted to announce that I can now release my backlist books which were originally written for Harlequin Books. Of particular note—and joy—are the original four stories set in Pilgrim Cove and continued in the Sea View House trilogy. If you enjoyed the Sea View House romances, you’ll be sure to love the Pilgrim Cove series. Watch for them this fall and winter.

To celebrate good news, I’m continuing to give away a special gift to those who sign up for my newsletter. A lovely anthology of romances set around different U.S. holidays. Five great authors. Five great stories. My own contribution, Man of the House, combines Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. If you already own this story, you’ll still have a chance to read four others and discover authors you might like very much.

Finally – I’m updating Hopefully Ever After, the memoir I wrote several years ago after surviving two bouts of breast cancer. I continue to do well, thank God—just passed five years (again)—but decided to have some reconstruction. Another tale to tell!

I keep starting over because we all deserve second chances in every part of our lives.

All the best to you,
