Overview

A Hollywood film crew upends life in an idyllic California village in this prequel to the Carson Springs trilogy
In the late 1950s, filmmakers descended on Carson Springs to shoot the movie that made this sleepy Spanish mission town famous. A plaque commemorates the filming of Stranger in Paradise, but nowhere does it mention Cora Delarosa, whose life changed forever when Hollywood arrived. Barely thirty, but married for over a decade, she does not realize that her marriage is falling apart until she meets the handsome and charming film director Hank Montgomery. In this novella, Eileen Goudge sets the stage for her Carson Springs trilogy, showing that in this small town, passion, heartache, and long-buried secrets have always been a way of life. This ebook features excerpts from two of the Carson Springs novels, favorite recipes from Eileen Goudge’s own kitchen, and an illustrated biography of Goudge including rare photos from her personal collection.

    Teaser for Carson Spring Series

    Eileen is one of my longtime favorite author, having read all her books; however, I still purchased this short E-Nook Book “Welcome to Carson Springs-Heaven on Earth”, a prequel about Sam’s parents and life in Carson springs back in the 50s - A short summary to the Carson Springs Trilogy (Stranger in Paradise #1) and (Taste of Honey #2), which I read years ago, as well as a bonus -some of Eileen’s recipes. (Be sure and read #3 Wish Come True ). It was fun hearing from these characters again as this was 2001-2003, and urge you if you have not read these, to do so – you will enjoy!
