I’m thrilled to introduce you to the beautiful cover of my newest PG-rated love story, coming in early August from Champagne Books. Champagne also published Inn by the Lake, and The Last Gift.
Fearless Summer, Return to Chincoteague, is set in the summer resort town of Chincoteague, within view of the wild ponies made famous by Marguerite Henry’s Misty of Chincoteague, which this year marks the 75th anniversary of publication. But, much as I have always loved Henry’s books, this is no pony book.
My second-chance romance brings together two young people who grew up on this island, always certain they would be together forever. When her dreams came crashing down their senior year in college, Charlotte ran away from college, her career goals, and even her hometown. Now she returns to help her sisters open a new candy shop but is already planning on leaving after Labor Day. She still sees no future here. Henry, now the single father of a lively seven-year-old daughter Daphne, never hoped they could be together again. Until now.
The e-book is now available for pre-order. The paperback will be available for 2023 summer reading.
