Announcing My New Book: Finding Love in Friday Harbor, Washington

Coming September 1, 2017:

FLI Friday Harbor, Washington
I love lounging at the pool or the beach with a summertime read, don't you? I wrote this book out of a hunger, as a reader, for just such an experience. Finding Love in Friday Harbor, Washington is a contemporary Christian romance set at the Salish Sea in Washington State. Here's more information: 

Will keeping his promise lead to another broken heart—or help them find love again?

Professor Mikaela Rhoades has a plan: she’ll encourage her students’ marine biology research through an exclusive program while helping an old family friend’s whale touring business stay afloat. The challenge is the tour captain is her first love and ex-fiancĂ©. Mikaela longs to help his family in the wake of his father’s death, but she’s keeping secrets. She’ll have to face her past and overcome her concerns about the future to make it through the summer.

Captain Hunter Cahill has taken over the family touring business after his father’s death. Unfortunately, he’s drowning in grief and accumulated debt. He’s hoping the incoming stodgy professor will help resurrect the failing business, but he’s not prepared when that professor turns out to be Mikaela, his former fiancĂ©e. To make matters more difficult, he’d promised his father to pursue her if she ever returned to the island single. The more time they spend together, the easier it is to keep that promise, though she still plans to leave at the end of the season. How much will it cost him to spend the summer romancing Mikaela?

The pre-order link in this post is for the e-book format. But the print format will have its own link closer to release date. 

Some of my themes in this book are: hoping in God, even when it's hard; grieving the loss of a parent; healing from past hurts. My characters are flawed, real, and at times hurting while trying to carry out their commitments. They're also noble and heroic and learning to trust God with their lives. 

I hope you'll read and enjoy this first book in my new Washington Island Romance series. Books two and three will be out in 2018 and 2019. If you enjoy the book, please leave a review on Amazon. You don't have to write a lot, but any kind review is greatly appreciated! 

Happy reading, friends!
