There's a little delay because I held out for Sophie Eastlake as the narrator and her schedule was super busy. But she emailed me last week to let me know the book is in production, and I hope it will be available by the end of the month. (I'll announce the official release day for audio on Facebook and in my newsletter, and of course you can always check the Audible website.)

Strong men knit.
Really, what else do you need?

A feel-good romance between a player hero and a warm hearted heroine. Loved the bantering brothers and the emphasis on family and community.

Sisters books are always good. They're not always *this* good.
Rich description, twisty secrets, and a steal-your-heart romance make this story about memories, perception, and forgiveness really special.

“If you never asked, you were never disappointed.
If you didn't rely on someone, they could never let you down.
If you never admitted how desperately you wanted something, it didn't hurt so much when it was taken away.”

“We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.”
Ursula K. LeGuinn

“E.L. Doctorow said once said that 'Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.' You don't have to see where you're going, you don't have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you. This is right up there with the best advice on writing, or life, I have ever heard.”
