When Jill Goodman’s picture-perfect marriage implodes, she’s heartbroken. Still reeling from the shock, the only thing she receives in the hasty divorce settlement is the deed to her husband’s sprawling beach house on the New Jersey coastline. Jill never cared about money – only her marriage – but with Marc determined to take everything she owns, the beach house is her only lifeline left.
With no other choice, Jill travels to the shore intending to sell the house quickly—but the task is not as easy as she expects. Still, she can’t help but be charmed by the beautiful seaside town and its sweetly old-fashioned ways. Despite everything, Jill is starting to see a path back to who she was before she met her husband – not the demure, polished housewife she’d become, but the smiling young woman with the strong Jersey accent who loved her family more than anything.
Then Jill dives deeper into Marc’s secrets and she stumbles across a something in her husband’s past that changes everything. Could Jill herself have been unknowingly complicit in what Marc did and, if so, what will happen to her when the truth finally comes to light? With Marc determined to bury the evidence, can Jill find a way to save herself before her once perfect husband takes her down with him?
A gripping, emotional read that will keep you turning the pages late into the night, perfect for fans of Amanda Prowse, Elin Hilderbrand and Diane Chamberlain.

Eudora Grace Gadsden’s life has been planned for her since birth: private school, cotillion, social debut, and an engagement at the end of her Season. Generations of Gadsden women have flourished in society, with these advantages, and Eudora’s life will be no different.
But what if the life she’s expected to live is not the one she wants?
When her attempts to change her destiny goes awry, Eudora finds herself alone, without the safety net she’d taken for granted all her life. To build the life she wants, she’s forced to rely on herself and what she knows: the rich history of her city and her own hidden strength. But Eudora is still a woman bound by the rules of her class and time. To deviate from the path set for her is to risk losing everything.
How far is she willing to go to create a different future?
At least that’s what Joanna Rutledge Reed thought. At eighteen, she left her family’s ancestral home in Charleston, South Carolina, despite promising to stay. For years, she did whatever she wanted, barely giving her family back home a second thought. But a string of bad decisions results in heartbreak, forcing her to return, her life in tatters.
While her wayward sister traveled the world, Marcy remained in Charleston, caring for her aging grandmother and managing the family business. She's got problems of her own that no one seems to notice or care about. When Joanna arrives unexpectedly, Marcy bristles at the intrusion, suspicious of her sister’s motives.
As Joanna picks up the threads of her old life, she discovers things are not what they appear to be. Painful memories and hidden secrets resurface, leading Joanna to question everything she thought she knew about her family. When her life begins to crash around her again, she needs her sister more than ever.
Set against the rich tapestry of Charleston, South Carolina, three generations of strong Southern women share a history and not-quite-forgotten secrets. Will the bonds they forged years ago be strong enough to give them a second chance at being a family?
But things are not as perfect as they seem.
On the eve of the tree lighting in the town square, police find a runaway in trouble. Residents of the community gather to help, but complications arise, and unraveling the boy's past is harder than they imagine. As a blustery Pacific Northwest Christmas draws near, can they find a way to give a boy with a shattered past a chance at happiness? Can they give him a home for the holidays?
A Light in the Window is a heartwarming tale of community, family, and second chances.
When three sisters arrive to claim the oldest house in town for themselves, you can bet the residents of this tiny beach community will have something to say about it.
For the sisters, it started with a letter stating they've inherited an equal share of a dilapidated beach house from a relative they don't remember. Complications arise when each sister wants something different from their unexpected gain. But before they can do anything, they have to spend the summer together, repairing the house.
The Inheritance is filled with the quirkiness of a small town, the craziness of an imperfect family, and the hope of a second chance.
