Date 2020 by Rosewood Press

 

The USA Today bestselling author of the Oyster Bay series invites readers to return to Evening Island for a heartwarming, stand-alone story about three sisters at very different crossroads in their lives who reunite for one unforgettable summer at their family’s lake house.
The Taylor sisters spent every summer at their family’s lake house, but as they grew up, they also grew apart. Now, in honor of their late mother’s wishes, they reunite on Evening Island, each hoping to find the best part of themselves they’d left behind.
Kim is just weeks away from what should be her dream wedding, but as the big day draws closer, her doubts only grow stronger. Some time away may be just the thing she needs to help clear her head…or change her heart.
Heather has always been the reliable sister, but a recent divorce has made everything feel uncertain. When a second chance with an old flame comes along, she must decide if a summer love can last a lifetime.
Andrea’s career is her top priority, even if her heart is no longer in it. When her boss suggests a vacation, a couple of weeks on the island leads to the inspiration she was searching for, and not just for work…
Thanks to the beauty of the island and the memories they share, the sisters come together, search their hearts, and discover what the future holds for each of them at summer’s end.

Excerpt

Andrea darted her eyes to the retracting figure once more. Was it? It couldn’t be. But it must.
She stood up from the wooden bench and hurried along the boat deck, grabbing her sister’s elbow as she approached. “Was that Billy Davidson?”
Heather’s cheeks were flushed, and her eyes looked a little wild, but she nodded her head calmly and said, “Yep.”
Well, this was certainly an interesting twist. Heather had never been shy about her feelings toward Billy—except to maybe Billy himself. 
“What’s that look for?” 
“I didn’t say a word,” Andrea said, but she knew she was giving Heather the same coy smile she always used to give her when Billy first showed up each summer, usually on his old ten-speed, his hair windblown, his gaze always landing on the middle Taylor sister. “You and Billy always had a special friendship, that’s all.”
“We did,” Heather said. “And a friendship is what it still is.”
It was true, Andrea supposed. The summer people kept in touch over the year—but not by much. Still, they knew enough about everyone’s whereabouts—like that the Morgan sisters whose family lake house was right beside theirs had also all ended up in Chicago, at least briefly. Years back, when they’d all been younger and newer to the city, they’d met up, but it felt strange and awkward and out of place. The island was what drew them all together, what kept their relationships special. 
Besides, up until recently, Heather had been a happily married woman. Or so Andrea had thought.

Meet Me at Sunset

(Evening Island #1)

By Olivia Miles

Women’s Fiction/Romance

Paperback & ebook, 324 Pages

February 25, 2020 by Rosewood Press

 

From USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Miles comes the first in a collection of stand-alone novels set on the fictional shores of Evening Island—just a ferry ride across the lake from Blue Harbor, home to the newest heartwarming series!

The Morgan sisters spent many blissful summers at their family’s lake house growing up, but as they grew older, their lives took very different paths.
Hope adores her twin girls, but she doesn’t love being a stay-at-home mom. When her workaholic husband doesn’t support her career aspirations, she packs up the kids and goes to Sunset Cottage, thinking that some time apart will help her decide what she really wants-but when the life she dreamed of becomes a possibility, she is more torn than ever.
Gemma was supposed to be planning her wedding, not trying to get back deposits. And she was supposed to be finished writing her latest romance novel, not staring at a blank screen. Lost and down on her luck, she heads north to Evening Island, hoping to find the inspiration she needs to fill the page, and maybe, her heart.
Ellie is almost perfectly content living in the house that once belonged to her grandmother, even if it does get a little lonely sometimes. Still, work is steady at her art studio and the island continues to serve as a muse, especially when her first love makes a surprise return.
In the course of a month, the Morgan sisters learn that despite their differences and their personal struggles, they might just have more in common than the old summer cottage that they inherited.
