Book Description:

He’s never forgotten their first—and last—kiss. But is it too late for a second chance?

Poppy Cavanaugh’s life is a dumpster fire thanks to her two-timing fiancé, whose unexpected death left her not only heartbroken but homeless and unemployed to boot.

Landing the open teaching job at the high school might just be the chance she needs to finally get her life back on track—even if she has to coach the girls’ softball team to do it.

Too bad she still has nightmares about the last time she caught a fly ball…with her nose.

MLB pitcher Damon Santos is having a career crisis of his own. With his contract up for renegotiation, the last thing he needed was a shoulder injury benching him for the remainder of the season—if not his entire career. Rest, training, and a new perspective are just what the doctor—and his mother—ordered, and are why he finds himself back in the hometown that had once felt too small for his big dreams.

Only returning to Blue Haven hasn’t been the nightmare he expected. Not with Poppy Cavanaugh around, a woman who, despite her propensity for diving into bushes upon seeing him, still has him thinking back to their first—and last—kiss all those years ago.

However, Poppy’s been burned one too many times by charmers like Damon Santos and will take whatever evasive moves are necessary to keep her heart safe.

But when the softball season goes from bad to worse, and the girls start talking mutiny, Poppy’s desperation has her calling on the only expert who might help her turn things around…

Book Description:

I lived through her murder when I touched her bones

I am NOT a freak, although many people call me that. The night my father was murdered and I was left for dead, I awoke with the ability to “sense” things. Touching things can give me visions, sometimes horrifying, murderous ones. That doesn’t make me a freak, but it gets me into trouble.

The bones of a murdered woman are unearthed and our safe small town is shaken to its core. Her killer was good at hiding the truth and after decades in the ground, any clues are gone – her murder a complete mystery. The only clues are the ones I can see.

My brother was recently promoted to head detective. With no other clues, you think he’d be thrilled to have my help, but he’d rather pretend I don’t exist than use my gifts. Thank heavens, his handsome partner doesn’t agree and calls me in.

Although I’m terrified to touch her, the mysterious skeleton has a story that needs told. When I grip the bones, I live through her murder. The message I see changes me – changes everything.

Instead of a helpful hero, I become even more of an outcast in my small town. The only person who believes me is the one man who knows the truth of my visions – the killer. He’s desperate to keep his secrets buried. Now he hunts a new prey – me. I don’t need psychic powers to know he’s right behind me – closing in – about to strike.

Book Description:

Dear Reader: Please be aware that this is not a children’s book.

Slipper’s Last Breath

For most people Christmas is a time for reflection, a time to share and celebrate with family and friends, but for some it is a time of sadness and quiet desperation. What if your soul mate, best friend and lover is no longer around to share in the season of joy and you are about to lose the last remaining link to a life you once knew and loved. Would you find the strength to survive?
Slipper’s Last Breath is a story about love, companionship and triumph over tragedy.

Some might call it a Christmas miracle, but I call it the power of unconditional love.

The Unwrapped Gift

Sometimes the best gifts are the unexpected ones. After enduring the heartbreak of a bad marriage, Beth is in no mood to celebrate the Christmas season. It’s sad enough spending the holidays alone, but watching Spice, her five-year-old Labrador retriever, mope around the house was more than she could bear. A visit to Miller’s tree farm to cheer up her canine companion leads to an unexpected find and the possibility of a new found relationship.

When she least expects it, Beth rediscovers love and the magic of Christmas.

A Charcoal Christmas

She was born under the loading dock behind Johnson’s Market and lost her mother when she was only five weeks old. One of a litter of six, she and her siblings had to learn to fend for themselves at a young age. The life expectancy of a feral cat is short, but thanks to the generosity of a compassionate store owner, the kittens were well fed and enjoying their lives. Then one day a stranger appears and takes her away from the safety of her kin. Confused and frightened, she is forced to endure an uncaring human and ultimately the forces of nature, in hopes of returning to the ones she loves.

A Charcoal Christmas is a bittersweet tale of survival, hope and loving companionship.

Christmas Mourning

A troubled priest struggling with doubts about his faith and vocation has an unexpected encounter with a stray, weather-beaten black cat. When Father Pedro decides to provide warmth and shelter for the lost creature, he has no idea how this simple act of kindness will impact his life forever.
