Paperback of INN BY THE LAKE now on sale

Inn by the Lake is now available as a paperback from Champagne Books. You can find it at Amazon, too.

I have now held my new modern love story in my hands. The paperback edition went in to production last Monday and I quickly ordered mine.

But I wasn’t as quick as my daughter who already has received hers. She rushed over to my house with a copy for me to see. And to sign. I’ll never get over the thrill of adding my signature to a book I wrote.

Champagne Books has produced a beautiful book. I love the cover’s color palette with the images of my wonderful Luke and Amanda with a hint of Deep Creek Lake in the background.

Inn By The Lake tells the story of two hard-working people who just might fall in love at a mountainside inn—until they discover she’s working for a developer who wants to buy the inn and he’s the son of the innkeepers who don’t want to sell. Can the inn’s past promise Amanda and Luke a future?

There’s a fun bit of true history in the book, the honeymoon of a president and his first lady, a lot of movie references and the innkeepers who I hope you’ll fall in love with. They are an homage to a real couple I met while I was writing Frommer’s guides. Hospitable, fun, and sweet.

I’m so proud of this, my first contemporary romance. I hope you’ll love it the way I do.

Inn by the Lake is now available as a paperback from Champagne Books. You can find it at Amazon, too. It’s my third novel, a contemporary romance coming after my historical Divided Loyalties, a Civil War story with a hint of romance, and Love Letters and Gingerbread, a Jane Austen-inspired Christmas novella set in Annapolis.
