Here to Stay by Jenyfer Matthews

All Julia Sullivan wanted was a fresh start in a new place. But cutting ties with the past and starting over can be a difficult thing to do.

After leaving her husband and quitting her job, Julia was emotionally spent. She needed a quiet place to recharge and to think about what she wanted from life. She thought she had found just that when she inherited her aunt's oceanfront Victorian house in Haven, New Jersey. It wasn't going to be that simple, however. In addition to her new house being a complete shambles, her charming soon-to-be ex-husband Patrick - whom she discovers she still loves - arrives with the intention of winning her back. To complicate matters further, it seems as if her aunt's death wasn't an accident after all. And there's just something about her new house that seems to interest all sorts of people...

About the Author

Nature or nurture - one way or another Jenyfer was born with a touch of wanderlust, having moved states twice and houses four times before the age of five. The second child of two displaced Midwesterners, Jenyfer grew up in southern Louisiana and spent most of her childhood summers in northern Minnesota, further contributing to her regional identity crisis. She escaped back to the milder climes of the Midwest at the first opportunity by accepting a graduate assistantship at Kent State University, renting an apartment over the phone, and moving to Ohio sight unseen. She cemented her reputation as a daring individualist (or an impulsive flake, depending on your perspective) by eloping with her now husband after only ten months - and introducing her family later.

The move to Ohio was only the first of several long distance moves for Jenyfer. After a few years in Ohio, she and her husband moved to North Carolina for a job - and then on to the United Arab Emirates where they resided for six years and started a family. Traveling has become something of a passion for Jenyfer who has since visited Greece, Turkey, Germany, Italy, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Oman, and Qatar. Jenyfer currently resides in Cairo, Egypt.

Over the years Jenyfer has been a retail clerk, a department store model, a receptionist, a teacher, a freelance newspaper columnist, a librarian, a quilter, and a full-time mother. She's a Capricorn, a wine lover (but not a snob), and loves to people-watch. In addition to writing novels, Jenyfer writes tongue-in-cheek essays about motherhood and her adventures in living abroad and traveling which she shares on her blog. Jenyfer has published three contemporary romances which have all received outstanding reviews and is currently working on a women's fiction novel - and planning her next trip.
