Brianna Murphy’s surprise visit to McNally Bay had backfired in a big way. Instead of closing the gap between her and Jake McNally, the gulf between them had widened. She’s anxious to fly home to Ireland, but when Jemma injures her wrist and can’t cook for the B&B, Bree agrees to stay and help. When Jake decides to stick around, and asks for a second chance, she reluctantly agrees, despite knowing they both want different things out of life.
Jake had avoided McNally Bay for twelve years, returning only to escort his younger sister, Jemma down the aisle for her wedding. Everyone loved the quaint small town, but he knew McNally Bay had a dark underbelly and couldn’t wait to leave, until a surprise visit from his former girlfriend, Brianna Murphy derails his plans. Jake soon realizes the secrets he’d avoided for all these years, have shot to the present. And worse, they threatened his family—including Bree. Jake begins to understand the only way to move forward with his life is to solve the mysteries of his past. Will the footloose McNally find the place he belongs, with Bree?

I’m often asked when I started writing and I have to be honest, I can’t remember when I wasn’t writing. I loved books as a kid and like many authors I ran out of stories that I liked to read so I began to make up my own. I wrote my first teen novel when I was thirteen and my first romance when I was seventeen. Of course neither manuscript was very good, but I never gave up and after I finished Graduate school I decided to take some time for myself and get back to my writing. I’m so glad I did! I grew up reading faith based books by Grace Livingston Hill so writing for Love Inspired Suspense is a dream come true. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. I currently live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my husband of thirty-three years. My daughter Nicole is married to a wonderful man named Mike and my son Jonathan is a Registered Nurse at the same hospital where I work. I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I’m a dog lover and had to put my Westie named Mac down a year or so ago. I still miss him but now have a chance to dog sit for my sisters and brother. I try to incorporate pets in my my stories as much as possible In May of 2017 I was the humble recipient of the Wisconsin Romance Writers Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m blessed to be a member of such an amazing group!
