Please tell me you haven’t put your beach bag away yet. I want you to join me in Pass-a-Grille for the holidays with CHRISTMAS AT THE BEACH, A Ten Beach Road Novella. It’s my first novella and my first e-original, and I had a great time reuniting Madeline, Avery and Nicole, to say nothing of Kyra (whose story this is), Dustin (he’s a one year old, now!), and Chase, and Deirdre, and, of course, Bella Flora in all her grandeur. I hope you’ll join the whole Do Over gang as they celebrate the holidays and each other in this return to the house and the beach where it all began.
The story is a look at what everyone’s been up to and–I couldn’t resist–teases a bit about where they and Do Over are headed in THE HOUSE ON MERMAID POINT, out next summer. The story encompasses 24-hours at Bella Flora, where everyone’s gathered for their first and last Christmas at the recently sold property. There’s plenty to celebrate. In addition to being back together, Do Over is going into a second season, family rifts are healing, and it’s Dustin’s first Christmas.
Dustin, who made his first appearance in OCEAN BEACH, is the child of Madeline’s single daughter Kyra and married superstar actor Daniel Deranian. Kyra’s hope that the visit will include respite from the paparazzi that hound them is quickly dashed, but Bella Flora nonetheless provides a haven. It’s going to be a wonderful holiday. Or it would be if a string of bad news hadn’t begun trickling in and if they hadn’t learned that their beloved Bella Flora’s buyer is the absolutely last person who should ever own her.
I hope you’ll join me at Bella Flora for the holidays. In the meantime, please visit my website to enjoy an excerpt and for more info about CHRISTMAS AT THE BEACH and my other titles.
