About the Book

Summer at the Highland Coral Beach

Escape to the Highland Coral Beach – where broken hearts can be healed

Beatrice Halliday needs a break from life. Booking a trip to the Highlands on a whim, Beatrice hopes learning Gaelic in a beautiful Scottish village might help her heal her grief after losing her baby, her husband and her much loved job in a space of months.

But Port Willow Bay isn’t exactly as the website promised. Instead of learning a new language, she’s booked in to learn the ancient skill of willow weaving, her hotel room is Princess and the Pea themed (with a stack of mattresses for her bed!) and worse still, her tutor is Atholl Fergusson, grumpy landlord of the hotel where Beatrice is staying – and she’s the only one doing the course.

But as Beatrice finds herself falling in love with Port Willow Bay and its people, and as she discovers the kind heart beneath Atholl’s stony exterior, can she really leave?

Escape to the beautiful Scottish Highlands with this utterly romantic, feelgood book; one visit to Port Willow Bay and you’ll want to come back! Fans of Sarah Morgan, Carole Matthews and Holly Martin will be captivated.

Christie’s Review


Escape to the Highland Coral Beach is a charming, and uplifting little read! It was truly a pleasurable escape!

Beatrice Halliday has had a rough, rough several months. She lost her job. Her heart is breaking since she lost her baby as well in a miscarriage. To add insult to injury, her husband took off, not able to handle the loss either. Now, she is left to mourn alone. One night after too many glasses of alcohol, trying to drown her sorrows, she gets spontaneous and books herself a trip to Port Willow Bay in Scotland to learn Gaelic. 

Upon arrival, she discovers that she has been scheduled to learn willow weaving. The inn isn’t what it was supposed to be either. She does get herself a tutor who will teach her Gaelic. His name is Atholl Fergusson. However, he isn’t pleasant at all. He is quite the opposite, distant and grumpy. Nothing is going how she planned.

As she begins spending more time in this lovely setting, she discovers that she is quite coming to love this little town, and it might just be what she needs to help heal her broken heart. She begins seeing a different side to Atholl as well. They both might just heal each other. 

I love books about hope and second chances. This one definitely fits those categories! I loved the story, the characters, and the setting. Looking forward to reading more from this author!

New Release and Review: Bachelor Boss (The Bachelors Club Book 2) by Sara Ney

Release Date: April 7 

What is The Bachelors Club?
It’s a gentleman’s club—like the dignified men of the past used to have. Except, we’re not gentleman, and we’re not dignified.
We’re ineligible bachelors, bored, jaded and not looking for relationships. Quite the opposite actually. So committed to being single, we’ve created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest…
Four days co-habitating in a shared work space shouldn’t be a big deal. It shouldn’t be distracting. But Spencer Standish saw me puking in a company trash can, and won’t let me live it down. Cheerful, aggravating Spencer, who wants me to fetch her coffee.
As if she’s the boss of me.

And now I’m stuck sharing her office.
Let’s face facts: I can’t be in a relationship; not when there’s a bet to win—not with Spencer, who loves my uncontrollable basset hound, lazy Sundays, and grilled cheese as much as I do. I refuse to fall for her.


will be the last Bachelor standing.

Christie’s Review


If you are looking for a sweet, charming, read filled with quirky characters, fun banter, and dialogue, you can’t go wrong with Bachelor Boss by Sara Ney!

Phillip is one of two single guys left in their club of three. He has no intention of losing their bet and every intention of being the last bachelor standing. Too bad, he didn’t see Spencer coming! She is about to turn his life upside down!

The two work on opposite sides of the same company. They have never met, but oh what a first meeting they have, imagine expired cream cheese and barfing in a wastebasket. To add insult to injury, they now have to share the same office space while renovations are being done on Phillip’s side of the company. Each of them know how to get under each other’s skin, and it becomes their favorite past time, each trying to annoy the other one! What begins as aggravation and mild dislike of one another turns to friendship and more. All this happens within the span of a week. Some would think that the book would be too rushed, but not in Sara Ney’s talented hands. It works, and it works well. 

This romance is different from others I have read, but I really liked it. Phillip isn’t the sexy alpha male. He’s sexy, but more in a nerdy way! He was a sweetheart!!!! Spencer is sassy, but she is also sweet and takes care of our hero. The two are perfectly matched. Much of the book is dialogue driven as the setting takes place mostly in their shared office. It was refreshing and fun to read something a bit different. 

I have saved the best for last, Humphrey, Phillip’s precocious basset hound. I’m a dog lover, and I have two labs that are quite similar to Humphrey, so I LOVED this addition. AND….he got his own chapters!!!! It couldn’t be more perfect!!!!!

I LOVED this addition to the series, and I loved that I had a smile throughout most of the book. It was a nice distraction from the real world!!!!!

Release Blitz & Review: One Moment Please by Amy Daws with Giveaway



the doctor is in

That awkward moment when an ER doctor has to inform you that you’re pregnant…with his baby. Download Now



One Moment Please-front-size down

That awkward moment when an ER doctor has to inform you that you’re pregnant…with his baby.

Three things Lynsey Jones knows about the hot doctor: he’s grouchy, an arrogant jerk, and strangely obsessed with pie.

Three things Dr. Josh Richardson knows: he doesn’t talk about his past, he doesn’t do relationships, and the crazy girl in the hospital cafeteria who ate a fistful of French silk pie…is annoyingly irresistible.

After a chance meetup at a bar and a heated cab ride together, things come to a head and now instead of hating each other, they’re horizontal in a bed.

Three months later, the weird cafeteria stalker who crept out of Josh’s house like a thief in the night, winds up as his patient in the ER after her Tinder date from hell.

The doctor is prepared to keep it cool and professional. That is until her bloodwork reveals she’s pregnant.

What really throws him for a loop…is the surprise baby…is his.

What happens when the seriously hot and growly ER doctor who kicked you out of a hospital cafeteria turns into an epic one-night-stand? Well, for starters, a surprise pregnancy. Dr. Josh Richardson never wanted a family, but Lynsey’s about to give him one. And if they have any hope of co-parenting, they need to learn how to co-habituate…and try not to kill or kiss each other in the process.

Christie’s Review


All-Time Favorite Read

Top Romantic Comedy of 2020

Oh my goodness, Amy Daws does it yet again!!!! One Moment Please is my favorite romantic comedy of the year!!!! It is laugh-out-loud at times, but yet Amy Daws pulls at your heartstrings too!!!!

Lynsey Jones has just finished her thesis, in of all places a hospital cafeteria where they serve killer French Silk Pie. On this particular day, the grumpy doctor, Dr. Josh Richardson, she has noticed glaring at her every time he sees her finally comes over. Nothing good comes from it!!!! However, a completely unexpected meeting later at a bar results in an unforgettable night in more ways than one. Weeks later, she realizes how unforgettable when he informs her that she is pregnant….and it’s his baby!!!

I was literally up almost all night following Lynsey and Josh’s bumpy and oftentimes, funny, road to happiness. Never have two people been so opposite of one another. She is quirky and funny, but so loving and patient with him. He is grumpy, distant, and sometimes, cold. Yet, he is incredibly protective of her and the “Peanut.” It isn’t like he wants to be this way. He yearns to be like Lynsey and live in color and light, instead of the darkness that envelops him. She longs to see him really smile, but she isn’t sure what to do to help him let go of the past. She sees tiny glimpses of the man he once was, but they always disappear almost as soon as she sees them. 

Despite the heat and steam in the bedroom, she wants all of him, but will he ever let her in? This my fellow readers is where all the emotions come roaring in. Daws had my heart in her hands…Josh broke my heart at times. She let me see his vulnerable and heart-broken side in the chapters that were told from his POV. I just fell harder for him. I mean his grumpy side could be cute, but this look into his soul, just pulled me in further!

The story was told with Daws’s trademark humor and quirkiness, but she also packed an emotional punch. It’s what makes her writing so special and keeps me coming back for more. My only regret was having to tell the characters that I have come to love good-bye. Hopefully, it won’t be too long when I can return to their world with Dean’s story….fingers crossed!!!
