SERENDIPITY, INDIANA
See the magical power of Love that's often dismissed as "coincidence."


Small Town Christmas
Serendipity, Indiana - Book One


Melissa is moving back to Serendipity, Indiana to raise her young son and run her new business—in spite of a painful past and the fact that the man who broke her heart years ago still lives in their hometown.

With his dad’s death, the work of the family Christmas tree farm has fallen to Jim Standish. But how can he hold everything together for the sake of his family, when his past is pulling him apart? Nobody can do it all, and there’s an obvious solution for the Standish family. But in Serendipity, there’s often more going on than a casual observer will ever know.

A new tragedy puts Melissa and her son in closer contact with the Standish family. Ignoring the past, and Jim Standish’s part in it, is no longer an option.

This is a story about second chances: facing difficulties of the past and not only moving on, but becoming stronger because of them. It’s also a story about “coincidences” in life that may be more than that.

A delightful touch of Christmas magic makes Small Town Christmas a story that ends on a sigh!

Emily's Dreams
Serendipity, Indiana - Book Two

Emily Kincaid's car wreck in Small Town Christmas changed lives. One of those lives was mine, because I hadn't even planned for Emily to have her own book. Wow, what a journey it has been, and I think when you read the story you'll get a sense of why. Our Emily is a complicated young woman, but so very worth getting to know.

I hope you'll cheer her on as she heals from her injuries and leaves her selfish ways behind, to become more than she could have imagined. I hope you'll also enjoy the ripple effect Emily's life is creating in Serendipity--in this book, and continuing through the next four stories!

Return to Serendipity and meet Emily's "Gran," Reba Markland, parents Jennifer and Marcus Kincaid, and needy teenage twin sisters Taylor and Hannah. Revisit Lillian and the rest of the Standish family--and along with Emily, get to know David Standish much better.

This book is romantic women's fiction, and includes the magical surprise ending you can expect with all my Serendipity titles.

The Ring 
Serendipity, Indiana - Book Five

Happily-ever-after is out of the question. But in Serendipity, the Magic of Love does amazing things.

Carla Standish makes wishes come true, for everyone but herself. She is the go-to person for whatever her friends and family need, and is world-renowned for creating one-of-a-kind, swoon worthy dresses. She’s even surprising herself and the folks in town by dating a decent guy these days. If one missing piece would fall into the jigsaw puzzle of her life, everything would be perfect. But she ruined that possibility long ago, didn’t she?

It’s been a couple of years since widower Jared Barnett and his kids moved to Serendipity for a much-needed new start. They were settling in, but now he’s getting some confusing signals from the vivacious shop owner he’s dating, and the small town “good old boy” network seems determined to treat the Barnetts as outsiders. An offer he shouldn’t refuse would mean pulling up stakes again, but Jared will do whatever is required to take care of his family, and to protect his own heart.

A Piece of Her Soul 
Serendipity, Indiana - Book Seven

Sweet romance meets light paranormal. Don't miss Autumn in Serendipity!


Nick Marshall has a hole in his soul, and Jacqueline must help him find the missing piece. Their teenage history in the gossipy town of Serendipity compounds the situation, as Jacqueline’s visit to help her injured mother (Reba Markland, EMILY'S DREAMS) turns into something more.

The little town hasn’t changed much--the gossip tree still has branches and roots everywhere, most folks remember the town’s past better than they can imagine its future, and the autumn colors are more beautiful than anywhere she’s traveled in the years since she left.

Jacqueline's gift is needed here, but she won’t risk her heart, or put her family in the spotlight, by staying.
