Editorial Reviews


"This book touched me in so many ways....Even though this is part of a series, you can totally read it as a stand-alone. The other characters mentioned don't take away from this story at all and just add more depth to it." -Janine's Cool Cats and Reviews

 "This is a sweet, clean romance which clearly shows the determination it takes for a recovering alcoholic to learn to stay sober. I compliment the author for her insight and compassion expressed for alcoholics in this book. Very well written." -Amazon Reviewer

 "Loved this sweet romance of finding love when least expected." - Goodreads Reviewer

 "This is such a wonderful sweet and tender romance with characters so relatable you feel like you know them and share their emotions as the story unfolds." -Amazon Reviewer

From the Author

The books in the Indigo Bay Sweet Romance series share a similar world but were written so readers can jump in where they want without having to had read the other stories. 

As I was writing JENNY, part of the Beach Brides series, I couldn't stop thinking about Josh Cooper, a secondary character who had a really bad first date with Jenny. Although that's only mentioned briefly, I wanted to know more about Josh and his struggles.

When I was given the opportunity to write for the Indigo Bay Sweet Romance series, Josh popped back into my head. I wanted to tell his story and knew Indigo Bay was the perfect world to do that. I decided to write SWEET HOLIDAY WISHES, a short read, that features another couple but gives readers a peek at what Jenny and her hero, Dare, are up to, and then follow that up with SWEET BEGINNINGS which would not only tell Josh's story, but also bring back Jenny and Dare and Lizzy and Mitch from the other two stories.

All three can be read on their own. Characters reappear and similar settings are used, but each story features a different couple. If you would like to read my three in order:

Book #1: JENNY (Jenny and Dare)
Book #2: SWEET HOLIDAY WISHES (Lizzy and Mitch)
Book #3: SWEET BEGINNINGS (Hope and Josh)
