Happy Tuesday Teaser! 😀
I’ve got something special to share with you…the second book in the Bluestar Island series. I must admit that when I started this book I wasn’t sure exactly where things were going to go in this small town. I was pleasantly surprised. ☺️ And wait until you meet Dash. That little goat is quite the handful. 😉

Back Cover Blurb:

A single dad, who’s in over his head, and an event planner running from her past, are drawn together on charming Bluestar Island by a determined six-year-old and her escape-artist goat.

Event planner, Charlotte “Aster” Smith, has fled the only life she has ever known. The situation has left her questioning her own judgment as she cautiously tries to create a new life for herself on Bluestar Island. Taking the job of event coordinator for the small town is a step in the right direction. The only problem is it’s currently a part-time position, but the mayor suggests with additional funding the position could transform into a full-time job. In the meantime, she needs a second job in order to stay financially afloat.

Farmer and single father, Sam Bell, is struggling to keep his aging farm from going bankrupt while raising his young daughter. And now that his daughter’s babysitter is heading off to college, he needs help. So when he finds Aster is in need of work, he thinks his problems are solved. But things aren’t always what they seem. And he can’t help wondering what Aster is keeping from him.
In the lingering rays of a Bluestar Island sunset, Sam and Aster find themselves dancing upon the sand. As they help each other heal, the possibility of a future together becomes tangible. But will the ghosts from their pasts extinguish this budding romance?
Includes a delicious recipe for Aster’s Amazing Apple Cobbler!

EXCERPT / Part 1

Bluestar Island, MA


The sun shone bright in the cloudless sky.
The birds sang out their sweet tune.
Charlotte “Aster” Smith couldn’t believe this was her first visit to Bluestar Island. Okay, maybe it wasn’t exactly a visit. Perhaps it was more like an extended stay. For how long? Well, that she wasn’t sure about. There were just too many variables at this point to make such a determination.
But while she was on the small New England island, settled just off the Massachusetts shoreline, she intended to soak up every bit of sea breeze and summer’s lingering rays. It was almost Labor Day weekend—the official end to the tourist season on Bluestar Island. She wondered what the island would be like once all of the tourists returned to their lives on the mainland. Something told her it would be even more magical.
Within a week of being on Bluestar, she had not only a roof over her head but also a part-time job and invitations to visit people and places. She honestly hadn’t had a moment to sit still. There was always something going on—including evening strolls on the beach.
Now that her cuts, bruises and fractures had healed, she was starting her life over. Everything was different now, including wearing heavy makeup to cover the angry red scar trailing down her jaw. Not even her name was the same. Not exactly. In an effort to hide from Oz, she now went by her middle name, Aster. It was one of the many things about herself that she’d never shared with him.
And what did she want this new life to look like? She wasn’t quite sure. She pondered the idea as she climbed in a golf cart and proceeded to make her way down Main Street.
