What New Beginnings Are Made Of
by Debra Clopton

On a whim of her aching heart, widow Alice McIntyre buys the Star Gazer Inn and is looking for a fresh start…something to put a spark back into her life.

Jackson McIntyre is guilt-ridden in the aftermath of his father’s death and determined to do whatever it takes to help his mother find her way to move forward. But when she buys the Star Gazer Inn and moves off of the huge South Texas ranch he’s stunned.

Artist Nina Hanson lives next door to the inn and is living a quiet life, keeping a low profile. She has her reasons. Will the opening of the inn and her new neighbors, especially the oldest son of the new innkeeper, tempt her to step back into the light and out of the shadows of her troubled past?

Lisa, Alice’s best friend and recent divorcee, has been traveling the world since the breakup. A brilliant cook with a flair for entertaining is excited to help her friend open the inn. But Lisa has her own secrets.

Can these two friends, and their new neighbor Nina, find fresh starts as they ready the Star Gazer Inn for its new beginning?

Will Nina find the courage to take one more chance on love with Jackson? Can she trust him with her past? With her heart?

Three women find friendship and courage on the shores of Corpus Christi Bay. Come visit the Star Gazer Inn, with a side trip to the McIntyre Ranch, as Alice finds her way between two worlds.

This new series follows Alice, her sons, and her friends—and new loves—on the South Texas coast with its sparkling topaz water.

You’ll want to dip your toes in and stay awhile.
