The weekend has arrived. My third novel, A Kite on the Wind, will release today. The date moved up a day to correspond with another event, the free giveaway of my debut novel, An Anchor on Her Heart, on Kindle from Amazon. What a great way to get started on the series—the first book free.
A Kite on the Wind is set in Newport, Oregon, back where the series began. Readers of book one may not remember Claire Simpson, who was the first contact McKenna Nichols had with the school where her daughter, Sydney, would be enrolled. But Claire remembers her, and in the opening chapter reflects on that as she watches a freak snowstorm and recalls other events in her life.
Left waiting at the altar five years before, Claire has moved on, carving out a peaceful existence in her role as teacher here in this coastal town. When her fiancé makes his reappearance, his presence threatens to unravel all Claire has worked to achieve. She believes she has forgiven him, but forgetting him proves an entirely different matter.
Montgomery Chandler has moved to Newport to work at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration headquarters there, hoping to make happier memories for his children after his wife died of a lingering illness. Their home in Seattle held nothing but the whispers of their earlier lives. Starting over will help all of them heal, but Monty is resolved not to risk love again.
When the handsome widower enrolls his hurting children at the school where Claire teaches, her determination to remain uninvolved vanishes at the whims of the snowstorm. This family needs her expertise. Can she help them without losing her heart? Can love break down the walls they both hide behind?
Readers have been extremely kind to all of my stories. Five star reviews are the norm, with a four-star here and there to keep me humble. I trust you will enjoy the stories, too. Be sure to take advantage of this weekend opportunity for book one. Nothing better than free!
