If anyone can save him, she’s the one

Jerrod Walters hopes relocating to the coastal town of Two Moon Bay can be the fresh start he and his young daughter need. But the single dad is caught off guard when a beautiful PR professional offers to promote his diving excursions to legendary shipwreck sites. There’s so much he admires about Dawn Larson, starting with the woman’s upbeat, can-do personality. Dawn’s boundless capacity for joy might be the only thing capable of bringing him back to life after his tragic loss…

The Treasures of Two Moon Bay

 What makes Two Moon Bay such a treasure of a small town? It’s got some great people, for sure, but it’s also filled with colorful places that make life good for the people who live there. I had fun revisiting the town with each book. As I wrote the three stories in the series (Something to Treasure is Book 2), the many characters pointed out new sights and events.

Dawn Larsen, a PR consultant and enthusiastic networker, is Jerrod Walter’s guide as he establishes his adventure diving business. Jerrod chose Two Moon Bay in part because it’s on the Wisconsin shore of Lake Michigan and has a marina, a fully stocked marine supply store, and a yacht club that’s a favorite place for parties and gatherings—and it becomes special to Dawn and Jerrod.

Within a day or two of moving to Two Moon Bay, Jerrod discovers his new home features much more than its postcard-perfect waterfront. What would any community be without a treasured coffeehouse? Two Moon Bay has the Bean Grinder, which serves mouthwatering muffins, cookies, and scones. Jerrod’s crew, Wyatt and Rob, enjoy “the Grinder,” as locals call it, too, and his little girl, Carrie, soon chooses her own favorite treats.

You won’t need to walk too far from the Bean Grinder to pay a visit another Two Moon Bay treasure, the Silver Moon Winery. When you’ve had your tour and tasting, maybe you’ll want to stop for dinner at another town favorite, the Half Moon Café.

Dawn knows the owners of the Book Shelf, Two Moon Bay’s bookstore on Bay Street, which is conveniently located down the street from the ice cream shop. Every year Dawn helps promote a major town event, Stroll & Shop, the annual downtown sidewalk sale that draws locals and tourists alike. In Something to Treasure, the sidewalk sale is especially memorable because a thunderstorm leads to a major crisis.

3

As you wander the streets of Two Moon Bay, you’ll also come across a war memorial in a small park near the library. And it’s just one indication that the citizens of Two Moon Bay are civic minded and honor—and treasure—their people, past and present. (The memorial also is featured in Book 3, Love, Unexpected.)

Of course, a town is only as appealing as the people in it, and you’ll meet quite a few men and women who are as enchanted with Two Moon Bay as I am. Plus, you’ll meet some old friends from Book 1 of the series, Girl in the Spotlight.

So, join Dawn as she introduces Jerrod to his new town and watch them create magic of their own.

The daughter they never knew

When Miles Jenkins sees the graceful young figure skater on TV, he can’t believe how much she resembles Lark McGee, the girl he dated briefly in college. Could this aspiring star be the child Lark gave up for adoption eighteen years ago? He has to find out.

Locating Lark ignites conflicting emotions in Miles—including regrets for what might have been and romantic feelings that take the two single parents by surprise. As they prepare to meet their daughter, this deeper connection between the two just might be the chance at love they never got.
