Terri asked:

Does anyone know what's going on with this book? I wanted it on Kindle but when I went back in to Amazon to see if it was available in anything other than paperback, it said "out of print". I'm confused and I wish there was a way to contact Lisa to ask.

Lauralmarie I just saw this and am so disappointed too. There is a preview chapter for Lightning Bay at the end of Crystal Cove and I was immediately hooked. It seems like at this point she won't be writing it at all; it was supposed to be published in September 2013, seven years ago!
Terri I sent an email to Lisa Kleypas and heard back from her assistant who sent the following message regarding the book:
I'm sorry you were expecting Lightning Bay to be published. The publisher and Lisa agreed, based on reader demand, to do a 4th book in the Travis series, rather than writing Lightning Bay. The Travis book, Brown-Eyed Girl, is scheduled for release in February 2015 according to the latest information I have. St. Martin's Press will let Lisa know if that date changes and we will post something on the website and Facebook.

In the meantime, Lisa is working a on a new historical series for Avon!

I don't know what plans, if any, there are to do another book in Friday Harbor series, and I'm sorry for the confusion.

I will let Lisa know of your interest in Lightning Bay and perhaps, if we're lucky, some day she will continue with the Friday harbor stories.
