“I stared out at the majestic vista before me and thought, if God lived anywhere, it’d be here. And then I looked down at the dead body at my feet.”
There’s something strange about Twizel. Maggie Blackmore didn’t come to this sleepy hollow for a mystery, but she sure as heck found one. Being an Aucklander in the South Island doesn’t help either. If they’re not calling her a JAFA (Just Another F**king Aucklander) then they’re telling her to slow down. Twizel Time is real and Maggie has to learn to roll with it.
As if that’s not enough, then there’s the farmers.
Got a thing for pony tails?
Just what the hell Luke Drake is up to is anyone’s guess. But when the station manager of Red Tussock takes an interest in the new girl in town, there’s no stopping him. And Maggie’s not sure that she wants to. But rules are rules and murder complicates matters. Being the only cop in town who can investigate the growing number of crimes puts Maggie in an even deeper quagmire.
And that’s not even considering the past that comes back to haunt her.
This sleepy hollow has just woken up and Twizel doesn’t care if you were born here or born to live here. Sooner or later your secrets will come out.

She wants a man with a good heart and a big dream. A man who will treat her as a true partner in marriage.

A MAN WITH A SISTER IN DANGER
Kansas rancher Garrett Richards is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t—his sister Elise married the bank’s loan officer so Garrett wouldn’t lose the family ranch. But Garrett suspects that Elise’s husband abuses her, even though Elise denies it.
Having failed to convince Elise to leave her husband, Garrett is struggling to make his late parents’ ranch profitable so he can pay off the mortgage. He believes that once Elise’s childhood home is safe, she’ll leave her miserable excuse for a husband.
A VILLAIN WHO HOLDS ALL THE CARDS
When Garrett misses a payment, Elise’s husband gives him an ultimatum: pay up in three days or I’ll evict you and your new bride.
Garrett’s between a rock and a hard place, but now he’s got Ruth in his corner, and she’s about to come out swinging.
Can Ruth find a way to keep the ranch afloat and rescue her new sister-in-law from the biggest bully in town?
His family and friends referred to him as a “rounder” because when it came to the ladies, Jayce (rhymes with Chase) Weathers, definitely gets around. He’s the hot bad boy who knows how to give a woman a night of wild pleasure, some laughs and leaves them wanting more and chasing after him.
Not that they’re likely to catch him. Jayce isn’t opposed to settling down, he just hasn’t met the right woman — if she even exists. He’s starting to wonder.
And then Billy Sweet shows up at the Honky Tonk Angels bar where Jayce is finishing the remodel on the top floor, and he has with him a woman and her two year old daughter. Callie and Lily Williams. Callie brings out something in Jayce. Something besides passion and lust. He wants to be her hero.
When Callie’s car ran out of gas just outside of Cotton Creek, she never expected to be rescued. Or to be offered a job and a place for her and Lily to stay. And she sure didn’t except to meet a man that made her dream of things she couldn’t have – love everylasting, a family and a home. But Jayce Weathers makes her dream of those thigns and a whole lot more.
They might both be dreaming the same thing. The problem is, there’s someone who doesn’t want that dream to come true for Callie, someone who just might be willing to do anything to make sure her dreams don’t come true.
Yep, things are heating up again in Cotton Creek.
Don’t believe what they tell you in movies and on TV; ghosts don’t haunt people. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying there’s no such thing as ghosts, I’m just saying they don’t haunt living people – because basically they don’t know we’re here.
How do I know that? Because I can see them. I have since I was a little kid. But I didn’t have a grandmother who taught me how to help people move on, or Bruce Willis as my ghost shrink. Nope, I just got to stand around like a zombie staring at people nobody else could see, wondering if it was me or the rest of the world who was crazy.
Then, just when I’d worked out what my version of ‘normal’ was, and was content with it, Jake came along – the anomaly – the Grey who didn’t play by the rules. What was worse, he couldn’t be just any old Grey, could he? Oh no, he had to be the most gorgeous guy I’d ever laid eyes on, living or dead. And he was set on rocking my world, whether I liked it or no
The lone survivor of a terrible night, where fate was so unkind, Ben Carpenter has resolved himself to a life of loneliness. After all, love has made him aware of only one thing – overwhelming misery – and he’d never go down that road again.
Submersing himself into running Fairfax and his side gig as a volunteer firefighter, he is shocked when envy suddenly takes hold as his best friend marries the love of his life. But before he can deal with the idea of reopening his heart to love, tragedy strikes again… just not for him.
As secrets of his wife’s betrayal come to light, Ben is faced with a new reality; and an opportunity to heal stares him straight in the face, in the form of Hannah.
Bonded by their similar losses, he begins to wonder…
Is there really such a thing as second chances?
When Laura Langston, a nurse from Oklahoma City, went to Siena, Italy, to celebrate her 60th birthday, she was not looking for a man. But, there he was – 62-year-old Raffaele Balducci, a talented potter, jazz guitarist, father, and grandfather. His face was pleasantly wrinkled from many years under the Tuscan sun. He had lively brown eyes and dark wavy hair sprinkled with gray. Their attraction was swift and strong. Laura and Raffaele were old enough to know how love works and brave enough to search for their own way forward.
