As a self-proclaimed foodie, autumn harvest is one of my favorite times of the year. For weeks now, our kitchen has been overflowing with fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden and local farmers' markets—corn on the cob, spinach and kale, root vegetables, carrots and peppers. Mmmmm...

On the writing front, I have a cover reveal! His Best Friend's Wife, the second book in The Finnegan Sisters series, will be a January 2017 release.
Here's the back cover blurb:
A second chance for his first love
Paul Woodward has always known Annie Finnegan was the one. But when she married his best friend, he moved away from their tiny hometown to try to forget the woman he could never have. When her husband passes away, Paul is heartbroken and wants to be there for the love of his life—but how can he, given the way he feels? As he returns to take over his ill father's medical practice, though, it's clear that Annie and her son are the family Paul longs for. As Annie heals and their connection grows, Paul will wait to find out if love really gives second chances…For Australian readers, The Christmas Secret (originally published as a Harlequin American Romance) is available in a pre-holiday Mills & Boon Western Romance anthology along with Rebecca Winters' Santa in a Stetson. This was my "secret baby with a twist" story, and it will always have a special place in my heart.
And the cover blurb:
AJ Harris needs to leave town, before he confronts his past in the form of a tool belt-wearing beauty who is also the mother of his child. Fate has other plans when AJ inadvertently hires Samantha Elliott to renovate and sell his grandmother’s old house. Now he has to hide the truth: he adopted the child Sam abandoned three years ago. No one can prevent the bond between mother and child. When AJ learns the selfless reasons behind Sam’s actions, AJ’s secret becomes a burden he can’t keep. Will Sam forgive him for having their son all along? Or will one little boy’s love bring together a family…just in time for Christmas?Happy harvest, everyone, and happy reading!
