So excited to announce that my first novel is up on Amazon.com for download or in paperback! One Sweet Development has been a life-long dream of mine. Here’s what it’s about:
Hope Springs is one of those quaint historic towns about an hour outside the big city where everyone knows everyone and most people like to keep it that way. It is also in the midst of a contentious revitalization project, much too many locals’ dismay.
Chandler Bradford owns the town bakery, Sweet Stuff Bakery. She is also a member of the Advice Quilting Bee, run by local matriarch Rosie Macintire of Rosie’s Quilt Emporium. Chandler has lived in Hope Springs all her life, and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else
Peter Frederick, Rosie’s grandson, grew up in the city and has worked hard to build his development business.
When Peter comes to town to bid on the revitalization project, he meets Chandler. She is tasked by the ladies of the Advice Quilting Bee to give him a tour of the town, not knowing his real intention is to demolish most of the historic buildings, including Chandler’s bakery.
As their relationship grows, Peter realizes the historic structures his company is looking to destroy are the heart and soul of the town. He sets out to come up with an alternative plan.
Unfortunately, his employee Cassia Collins has another idea, especially when she figures out Peter has his sights set on Chandler and not her.
Can Chandler trust an outsider used to tearing down the old to make way for the new? Can Peter give up the city for life in the country? And what’s with all the ghost stories?!?
I had so much fun creating this wonderful, and sometimes wacky, characters for this series. Yes, that’s right! This is the first in the Hope Springs Romance series I’ve created in my mind!
