Whether you’re new to the town of Angel River, or have been visiting for years, let me take you on a quick tour of the books – those published, and those yet to come!
Homesong – For twenty years, Kate Doyle has been haunted by the night when she was forced to flee from her tiny Virginia hometown and abandon her childhood sweetheart, Reed Fitzgerald. So when Kate, now in her mid-30s, escapes her unhappy life in Washington, DC and takes a much-needed vacation, the last thing she expects is to be reunited with Reed. There, under the warm clear Caribbean sun, amid ancient churches and pink flamingos, Kate and Reed seek to revive the love that they thought was gone forever. But will small-town secrets ruin their last chance for happiness?
The House on the Hill – Drawn by the irresistible lure of the past, Kate and Reed return to their hometown of Angel River, where the seemingly-idyllic landscape is dominated by the old house on the hill. When a shocking death leads back to a long-ago disappearance, everything that they know will be challenged. As answers to forgotten questions are brought into the light, walls will crumble and foundations will shift. And every soul who has loved and lived in the house on the hill will be eternally altered.
The Book of Forgotten Angels – (Soon to be re-released with extra content!) The search for a rare and mysterious book takes a solitary woman and a desperate man on an unexpected journey. Through secretive hearts and secret compartments, to hidden cottages in the woods, and hidden places within themselves. And when the last page is turned, they will have to decide: do they close the book on their own desires, or write the next chapter?
Sweet Music – (Coming this spring!) “Play the Beaufort flute, and you will see the future.” That’s what they say in Angel River. But is it a blessing, or a curse? Josie Sullivan has become the custodian of her family’s music store after her mother’s untimely passing. Faced with the loss of everything she holds dear, Josie decides to leverage the only valuable thing she owns: the fabled Beaufort flute. As she digs into the flute’s peculiar past, Josie discovers new love, unearths a family secret, and learns truths about herself that change her life forever.
Still Waters – (Re-release coming in March!) In 1950s Virginia, Jenna Appleton seems to have found the life she’s always wanted. But underneath the shallow gleam of her bright suburban world, murky truths are waiting to surface. On the morning that her husband dies in a tragic accident, Jenna finds a shocking photo of him in the arms of a beautiful woman. And before she can ask him about it, he’s gone forever. The deeper she dives for answers, the colder the water gets. How will she find happiness for herself and her family, when every step she takes towards the strange and awful truth seems to lead her right back to her own home shores?
A Bend in the River – (coming this summer!) When Chris Appleton journeys to Angel River in search of a missing piece of his past, he finds more than just memories. Mystery and magic, tragedy and new love – all of this and more is waiting around a bend in the river.
