Welcome to weekend sneak peek! 😀
I hope your weekend is going well. Things are in a bit of a hustle as I work on the rollout for Harvest Dance and polish up book #3 in the Bluestar Island series.

I’m working on it just as fast as I can. 😉 And today I’m sharing an excerpt from Harvest Dance…available October 5th.

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 2

Thanks to her college friend, Darla Evans, she had a roof over her head. And Darla’s cousin happened to be the new mayor of Bluestar. Based on her prior experience, Mayor Banks had given her a job as his temporary assistant. It didn’t pay much but she got by on it. And if she did a good job—no, an impressive job—she might gain a permanent position at city hall.
Still, she knew her future on the island, as idyllic as it was, was iffy at best. If her past caught up with her, it’d be all over. She’d once again have to move on and start over.
Aster shoved aside the disturbing thoughts. She centered her attention on the here and now. Today was her first day on the job, and she desperately wanted to make a good impression.
She navigated the mayor’s blue golf cart slowly down Main Street. The wide roadway was lined on either side by green trees and black lamp posts. People smiled and waved at her. She returned the gesture, even though she couldn’t remember all their names. If she stayed on the island long enough, she promised herself she’d learn all of their names sooner rather than later.
She came to a stop as people crossed the street. Most people were dressed in shorts and colorful T-shirts along with sunglasses and flip-flops. Tourists. It was as evident as if they’d had the word tattooed on their foreheads. She wondered if the locals thought the same of her.
The light ocean breeze rushed past her. She automatically moved her hand to her hair to smooth it, but her fingers touched her pixie cut. Her long brown curls were gone. They’d been replaced by bleach-blond locks cut short and bangs—something she’d never had before. The hairstyle had been a shock at first, but its easy management was growing on her.
