Love Catches Us in the Most Inopportune Times
Best-selling author Colton McCreed flies into remote but charming Eden Falls for the summer to study small town life for his next horrific murder mystery. As his research pulls him into the community, his life becomes entwined with Mayor Alex Blackwood and her exuberant son. Colton's bitter past left him believing he's immune to love, but he soon finds himself drawn to Alex and her happy-go-lucky kid.
Alex Blackwood is not only the mayor of Eden Falls, she's a business owner, the mother of six-year-old Charlie, and a widow. While love for her son fills her soul, the crushing reality of the death of her husband, who was killed while serving his country, is always near. As she struggles to find balance between her busy life and the challenge of raising a young son on her own, dating someone who's leaving at the end of summer runs dead last on her to-do list.
Charlie's impromptu invitations to dinner throw Colton and Alex into a world of discovery, shattering her image of Mr. Right and his belief forever happiness is out of reach.
Colton must move past his fear of attachment or risk losing his opportunity at love.
About the Author
I acquired my love of reading from my parents. My mother was a librarian and stacks of books were always close at hand. I wrote my first (more than three page) story in fourth grade. Tobie, my heroine, bravely solved The Mystery Behind the Iron Door. I took writing classes in college and stories began to develop.
I write happily-ever-after stories about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life.
I love my job, from blank page to the “ah-ha!” moments when a story comes together.
I live in Northern Colorado with my husband five of our eight children, and one of three grandchildren.
