Finch's Crossing Book One: Autumn
This cozy holiday-themed sweet romance features a Halloween pet parade, a fall harvest festival, and a Christmas widows' and orphans’ dinner. What could possibly go wrong? Everything!
Artist Autumn Hamilton is stuck in a creative block so strong she wonders if she will ever emerge. Inwardly determined to find her way back to painting, she puts on a brave face and pretends all is well, even fooling her best friend, Meg. But then a distraction—in the form of hard-hearted Ethan Rasmussen—pulls her into a complex family saga. Autumn must stop Ethan from making a huge mistake, regardless of his good intentions, and no matter how handsome he is.
Meanwhile, online shopping and big box stores have taken their toll on the once vibrant shops and restaurants in downtown Finch’s Crossing. Major Peggy Brightwell has hired entrepreneur Kyle Oswald to bring the merchants into the world of internet marketing and social media, in time to entice Black Friday shoppers to Finch’s Crossing. The eccentric and loveable merchants fall instantly in love with Kyle, but it’s Meg he wishes would notice him. But Meg is hiding a fierce loneliness from everyone, including herself. Kyle is determined to find a chink in her armor, no matter how grumpy and resistant she is.
Autumn and Meg must work through their own problems before romance even stands a chance. And to further complicate matters, Ethan and Kyle have the kind of baggage that just might be a little too heavy for Autumn and Meg to carry. Read an Excerpt
