Only a month until HOLDING ON releases and it's a little bittersweet as this will be the last book in the Nugget series for a long a while. This was my first series and I've become really attached to my small fictional town in California's gorgeous Sierra Nevada, just a spot on the map, helping the lost and lonely find love. But other projects call and 12 books, plus a novella (whew, it's been a beautiful journey) seems like a good number to tell the saga of this little railroad and ranching town.

HOLDING ON is available for pre-order and is the story of two people trying to reckon with their pasts and rebuild their futures. Joey Nix has lost everything, including a husband to divorce, a child to a bitter custody battle, and a career to substance abuse. Ryder Knight is still grieving a life that was snatched from him in the blink of an eye. Though the last thing they're looking for is relationship, they're unusual friendship has them questioning everything they ever thought about love.

HOLDING ON can absolutely be read alone. But if you want a good spring/summer binge read, the whole series is available.

Return to Sullivan's Crossing with #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr in THE COUNTRY GUESTHOUSE. Now available in mass market paperback, THE COUNTRY GUESTHOUSE (Sullivan's Crossing book #5) is an emotional and triumphant novel about new beginnings and the fierce power of a mother's love.

When Hannah Russell suddenly becomes guardian to a five-year-old, she's terrified she's not up to the challenge. She and Noah need to get to know each other, so she rents a country house on a lake in rural Colorado.

When they arrive at the house, they are greeted by the owner, a handsome man who promises to stay out of their way. But his clumsy Great Dane, Romeo, has other ideas. Noah immediately bonds with the lovable dog, and Owen Abrams can't help but be drawn out of his solitude by his guests.

As life throws challenges at this unlikely trio, they are tested in ways they never thought possible. All three will discover their strengths and, despite their differences, they will fight to become a family.
