Coming in October

They’ll be best friends forever, and that is the problem.

Marco is the best friend a girl could ever want. Lydia just wishes he loved her, too. But it’s hopeless. So she takes charge of her life and sets out to put distance between them. Otherwise, she risks pining away for the rest of her life all alone—like her mother. Except even her mother has found someone to love. So when a guy in one of Lydia’s college classes asks her out, she sees her big chance to get over Marco.

Marco has breezed through life—or at least his love life. The rest of his life hasn’t been quite so breezy. He was orphaned at ten, and his older brother raised him. Now eighteen, Marco and his brother own the Silva Brothers’ Brewpub, where Marco works the bar and charms the ladies. But his old pain-avoidance tactics have caught up with him. He’s kept Lydia at bay. They’re best friends, but best friends can grow close. By the time he realizes he’s in over his head, she finds someone to date. He didn’t see that coming.

In the small coastal town of Pine Harbor, Lydia’s Christmas wish could come true, but she’ll never know it.

They’re meant for each other.
They just don’t know it yet.

At seventeen, Eve Parker was thrust into life as a single mother. Her heart had betrayed her, but she’d learned her lesson. Love wasn’t for her. Life had become all about raising her daughter, but now that her daughter is starting college, Eve’s world is shifting.

Dylan Vaughan can’t remember when he didn’t love Eve—but always from afar. In high school, he’d mustered the courage to tell her, but it was too late. Eve’s life had veered off course, and he’d buried his feelings.

Now fate has brought them together. The timing seems right, but the wounds of the past loom between them. Some say there’s safety in numbers, but these two feel safer alone.

A future together looks hopeless, until Eve’s loyal, somewhat quirky, and decidedly goal-oriented friends intervene. They all agree that Eve and Dylan belong together, so it’s up to them to make it happen. There’s just the slight matter of how.

In the small coastal town of Pine Harbor, Eve’s autumn has changes in store.

I’m back online after two days without power or internet. The storm took five trees and played tree-dominoes on our house. #Isaias
