Fire the glitter cannons! Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl is out in the world! I do have some fun new tidbits to share about the book. NPR featured it in “3 Romances to Keep You on the Path to Happily Ever After”, saying it is “Not to be missed.” Also, Tantor Media has acquired the audiobook rights, with a release date of December 12. If you didn’t have a chance to preorder and would like to nab the book, you can find links to all retailers on the Sunny Girl page.
As for what’s next, well, believe it or not, Christmas is coming, as is A Christmas Temptation, which will be out November 1 in eBook and November 6 for mass market paperback. This is Book One in the Eden Empire series, about the Eden sisters, who are heiresses trying to make a go of it running their grandmother’s Manhattan department store. This series is so fun and shows the best of female relationships. Plus, who doesn’t love a good Christmas romance? I hope you’ll check it out!
When a book is first scheduled for release, it always feels SO far off. Then you realize how much work you need to do for a proper launch and it feels like you’ll never have enough time. I’m feeling both of those things with Secrets of a (Somewhat) Sunny Girl, which is out October 16. That’s what happens when you pour your heart into a book. More than anything, I’m excited for readers to get their hands on this story about sisters, families, and reclaiming lost love.
So what do you need to know? The preorder is live on all platforms. If you want to take a peek at the book, HEA USA Today ran an exclusive excerpt. I have also posted Chapter One. If you want a reminder to buy on release day, sign up for my newsletter. If you’re a Goodreads user, it would be awesome if you add it to your TBR. And lastly, if you want to know what some of the early reviews are saying, read on. I hope you decide to check it out in October. As always, please let me know what you think!

It’s time for a Fall 2018 book preview! August is usually miserably hot in North Carolina, but we got a reprieve this year because it’s only been miserably humid. Seriously…it’s been raining for weeks and my skin is impossibly dewy (read: sweaty). The good news is that Fall is on the way. I know this because Thursday Night Football was on this week. The universe only torments me this way when crisp days, falling leaves, and apple cider season is on the horizon.
This fall I have two new releases, both of which I’m unbelievably excited about! The first is SECRETS OF A (SOMEWHAT) SUNNY GIRL, out October 16, in all eBook formats and paperback. The cover will be revealed Tuesday, August 21 on HEA USA Today. In the meantime, here’s a teaser! Secrets was a true labor of love for me and it has everything I love to write about–family dynamics, secrets, and a hero you will fall hard for. If you liked BRING ME BACK, you’ll love this one! It’s available to preorder now!
Hot on the heels of Sunny Girl comes A CHRISTMAS TEMPTATION, Book One in the Eden Empire, a series featuring three headstrong heiresses and three heartthrob heroes, all set against the backdrop of the largest department store in Manhattan, Eden’s. This first installment stars Sophie, whose greatest aspiration has always been to run Eden’s with her grandmother. But Gram has passed away, Christmas is coming, and Jake, the guy she could never forget, is desperate to buy Eden’s and turn it into something else. There’s a mountain of money on the table, but temptation makes it so much more complicated. Sophie’s book will be out November 1 in all eBook formats and November 6 in paperback. It’s available to preorder now!
