Welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by.

Today is the release of the fourth book in the Bluestar Island series…



Back Cover Blurb:

When Bluestar’s hometown celebrity unexpectedly returns to the island, there’s a heartbreaking scandal following her…

Country singer Emma Bell is finally making headlines—just not the right ones. Before she has time to heal her broken heart, her assistance is desperately needed. Bluestar’s Concert on the Beach Summer Spectacular is in trouble, and her soon-to-be sister-in-law’s job is on the line.

Financial investor turned carpenter, Noah Sullivan, has retired from his high-stress job due to health issues. He’s moved to Bluestar Island for a quiet, healthy life, but when Emma blows into town, his days are anything but serene.

Everyone in the small town counting on them, Noah and Emma must work past their conflicts to keep a promise to someone special to both of them. Will the summer’s sun soothe their tension and the sea breeze lull them into a peaceful surrender of their hearts?

Includes a recipe for Emma’s Heavenly Angel Food Cake!

EXCERPT / Part 6

Meghan Saunders, their tour manager, sat down next to her. “Are you okay?”

Emma turned to her. Meghan’s brown bob always looked sleek. Her face was perfectly made up, as though she hadn’t gotten to bed late or up early. Meghan was always poised and handled any situation with grace.

Though she was twelve years older than Emma, they still hit it off. It didn’t hurt that they were the only two women on this particular tour. Meghan kept a close eye on Emma, and though at times it felt like she was being a mother hen, Emma appreciated the support.

“Do I look that bad?” Emma resisted the urge to pull the cap lower on her forehead.

“Let’s just say I saw the photo this morning.”

“Did everyone see it?” She glanced around to see if anyone on the shuttle was staring at her.

Meghan sighed. “Yes. I’m so sorry. Do you know the woman in the photo?”

Emma shook her head. “I’ve never seen her before.”

“Is there anything I can do?”

Emma once more shook her head. “This is my problem.”

“Just keep in mind that I’m here if you need anything.”

“Thank you. I really appreciate it.”

“By the way, the tour ended on a great note. You sounded awesome.”

“If only I hadn’t woken up to a photo of my fiancé kissing another woman splattered all over the gossip sites. Even some legitimate news sites are picking up the story.” She just wanted to find a dark hole and climb into it until this nightmare ended.

“I know it hurts. And I’m so sorry. But you know what they say.”

“What’s that?”

“No publicity is bad publicity.”

She frowned at Meghan. Surely she wasn’t serious. “I definitely could have lived without this publicity.”

“Have you talked to JT?”

She shook her head as her gaze settled on the five-carat diamond ring still on her finger. “No. I think the picture of him kissing someone else said everything.”

Meghan briefly squeezed her arm. “Pizza and a gallon of ice cream work wonders for me.”

“I’ll keep that in mind.” At the moment, she had no appetite whatsoever. In fact, she was feeling a bit nauseous. She just wanted to get to her apartment, curl up on the couch, and hide from the world.

Luckily, she didn’t have any other obligations in the immediate future because she wasn’t sure she could muster up that energy. As addictive as it was to perform, this revelation had leached away her enthusiasm.

She’d trusted JT. How could he do this to her? She’d been such a total fool.

    I love being able to get out my warmer weather clothing and packing away most of my colder weather clothes.
