This Everheart Books series officially started with Summer at the Shore Leave Cafe, but if you’ve read all of Abbie Williams’ books, namely Forbidden, you quickly realized how she incorporated her characters into each of her books. You’ll also notice a new look to her books, one that ties them all together. Abbie’s a prolific writer, so expect more great stuff soon from this wonderful storyteller.

Also, you can win a copy of all of Abbie’s books and a $10 Amazon Gift Card! Enter the giveaway here.

Twelve years ago, Jillian Henriksen cut off all her hair and placed it in her young husband’s hands as he was buried. After his tragic accident, she clung to the only remaining stability she had: her young son, her family of women, and her job at their restaurant, The Shore Leave Café. Now it is summer again, and change is in the hot and humid air, including the arrival of Jillian’s older sister Joelle, home now to stay. And then there is Justin Miller, a long time family friend, sexy but damaged after a terrible accident five years earlier. Will Jillian and Justin dare to risk their broken hearts and take a chance on love?

Abbie Williams has been addicted to love stories ever since first sneaking her mother’s copy of The Flame and the Flower; and since then, she’s been jotting down her own in a notebook. A school teacher who spends her days with her own true love, their three daughters, and a very busy schedule, she is most happy when she gets a few hours to indulge in visiting the characters in her stories. When she’s not writing, teaching or spending time with her family, you’ll find her either camping, making a grand mess in her kitchen at various cooking attempts, or listening to a good bluegrass banjo.

It would appear that October is bringing more good news as we just received word that Dean Mayes’ GIFTS OF THE PERAMANGK has been named a finalist in the EPIC Awards for contemporary fiction.


Congratulations, Dean – just getting this far is pretty amazing and we’re all looking forward to March 2014 when the winners will be announced.
