Her problems bring them together, but only a miracle can erase their differences—
Wounded in a nasty divorce, Lark Couldray is determined to carve out a new life. Inheriting Moana Point from her grandparents—the only place where she’s ever truly felt at home—offers the new start she craves.
Transforming the Katherine Bay homestead into a bed and breakfast comes with unforeseen problems, like falling for her much younger neighbour, Zach Callahan. It’s almost cradle snatching!
But when a series of mysterious events threatens her plans, Lark has to rely on Zach’s strength and determination as they work to uncover what and who lies behind the sabotage.
The past can cast a very long shadow, and the past here threatens their future and their very lives.
About the Author
I have lived in New Zealand’s beautiful farming country all my life. After growing up in rural South Auckland I married Martin, and together we’ve farmed sheep, cattle, dairy cows and run a kiwifruit orchard. This rural lifestyle provides a rich source of settings and inspiration for my stories.
For many years we’ve been based in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region – an area famed for productive land, generous rainfall, beautiful beaches, abundant seafood and lush verdant growth.
The Bay, stretching from East Cape to the tip of the Coromandel Peninsular, was named by Captain James Cook in the 1700′s when local Maori tribes provided his crew with food and hospitality, a trait that persists among its inhabitants to this day.
An ardent fan of romance, I love exploring human hopes and frailties, aspirations, love and laughter. Why Romance? To me, first and last, family matters. And Romance is all about reaffirming and celebrating family values.
I enjoy reading and writing about people who overcome adversity and commit to a relationship. I firmly believe there are romance heroes because I have one at home.
As a mother of five, sister to six siblings, and aunt to twenty (and that’s only on my side of the family) I know that the best things in life never come easy. Intimate experience of grief and anguish of life’s trials and the joy of overcoming tragedy shine through in my emotionally gripping novels.
Writing has always been a major part of my life. For years I wrote a Country Comment column for The New Zealand Herald and freelanced on local and regional newspapers in the Bay. Years living in small towns with all their joys, trials and tribulations add an extra dimension to stories.
