Unlock the secrets in Reunion Gap

When the son of the man who lost everything falls in love with the daughter of the man who stole it all, there can only be heartache ahead.

Readers who loved Mary Campisi’s bestselling Truth in Lies series, also known as the “A Family Affair” books, won’t want to miss Strangers Like Us, Book One in Mary’s new Reunion Gap series. It’s a tale of deception, secrets, forgiveness and redemption set in a small town.

Rogan Donovan gave up the glamour of big city life and returned home to help his family rebuild their lives after a smooth-talking stranger swindled his parents out of their life savings. But some things—like reputation and trust—can’t be rebuilt, and small towns never forget past offenses.

When Elizabeth Hayes arrives in Reunion Gap, bent on helping the people her father cheated, Rogan opens his heart to her, unaware she’s the daughter of the man who destroyed his father’s life. Despite her good intentions, Elizabeth’s secret will be exposed creating heartache, resentment, and bitterness.

Will forgiveness and redemption follow?

512bT3K-p6L._SY346_LOTTIE LOSER

It’s been twelve years since Lottie Luce ran away to Indiana, three weeks before her classes were to begin at IU, to avoid a confrontation with her best friend, and secret love, Nick Greyson. On the night she’d believed he was going to tell her he wanted her for more than a friend, Lottie caught Nick in a compromising position with her long-time nemesis, Ashley Marshall. The hurt and humiliation were more than she could bear.

Now a product of personal reinvention, Charlotte Luce is the youngest, and first female market president of Olde Florida Bank, and her life is nearly perfect. That is until Nick comes home to Anna Maria Island, hoping to save his father from financial ruin, and Charlotte’s carefully created world stands still.

Lottie Loser vacillates between the present, and the memories of the young girl who thought she had found love, lost it, and is now forced to examine the decisions she made, as well as the chemistry she and Nick still share.

He’s been too busy trying to keep his players alive, while also avoiding the Davies Brothers marriage trap set by half the town, to pay attention and to the fiery redhead who has swept into his small town.

DEA Agent Annie Blake was undercover to bust a drug ring that preys on high school athletes in the adorable, small town of Keeneston. She had thought to keep her head down and listen to the local gossip to find the maker of this deadly drug. What Annie didn’t count on was becoming the local gossip.

What she didn’t intend on was becoming the next target.

One day away from living on the streets, former pro football player Jake Hudgins has sunk to an all-time low. When he’s offered a job in a fledgling program to transition athletes at the end of their playing careers, he jumps on it, even though the offer was made to the financially sound man he once was, not the broke one he is now. Taxed with being a good example for young athletes, Jake is a fraud, and his coworker is suspicious.

Aggie Hermann has come to terms with never being a size six or even a size twelve. She’s made peace with her body and avoids men who see women as objects instead of looking deeper. Her new coworker, Jake, appears to be the superficial variety, and he has a secret. Aggie’s certain of that, even as she struggles with the irresistible attraction between them.

Working closely together to get the job done ignites Jake and Aggie’s passion until the resulting fire is sure to burn them both. Can their love survive the fallout when Jake’s secret is revealed, or will it be reduced to ashes?

51M5b7M8m6L._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_FOUR WISHES

Welcome to Book Two of The Liberty Series, where love, friendship and family life arrive with a second chance in the most heartwarming circumstances.

Petty thief Birdie Kaminsky has arrived in Liberty, Ohio to steal a treasure hidden since the Civil War. She’s in possession of a charming clue passed down in her family for generations: Liberty safeguards the cherished heart.

The beautiful thief wants to go straight. She secretly admires the clue’s author, freedwoman Justice Postell, who rose above the horrors of slavery to build a new life in Ohio. According to family lore, Justice left South Carolina at the dawn of the Civil War. Heavy with child, she carried untold riches on her journey north. As Birdie searches for the treasure, she begins to believe a questionable part of the story: a tale of love between Justice and Lucas Postell, the French plantation owner who was Birdie’s ancestor.

If the stories are true, Justice bore a child with Lucas. Some of those black relatives might still live in town. Birdie can’t help but wonder if she’s found one—Liberty’s feisty matriarch, Theodora Hendricks, who packs a pistol and heartwarming stories about Justice. Birdie doesn’t know that an investigative reporter who has arrived in town will trip her up—as will her conscience when she begins to wonder if it’s possible to start a new life with stolen riches. Yet with each new clue she unearths, Birdie begins to discover a family history more precious than gems, a tradition of love richer than she could imagine.

The books of The Liberty Series work as stand-alone novels you may enjoy in any order. Look for the other books in the series: Second Chance Grill, The Impossible Wish, Four Wishes and The Tree of Everlasting Knowledge.

#BARGAIN 

Home of memories long buried, steamy nights, and one regrettable summer…

Grace Romano had been seventeen, impressionable, innocent to the power of attraction and desire.
Max Ruhland taught her about both. He loved Grace and thought they had a future together, until she crushed his heart and told him he wasn’t part of her life plan.

Twenty-two years later, Grace Romano Clarke is a widow with two children and a pile of broken dreams. When her aunt dies, she must return to Magdalena, the town she’d rather forget, to honor the woman’s last wishes: stay in her house for thirty days, and complete a list that, according to her aunt, will reveal a bit about life and maybe reveal something about herself, too. What Grace doesn’t know but will find out soon enough is that Max Ruhland must stay in the house with her and help complete the list!

Max Ruhland isn’t the same lovesick puppy from the wrong side of the tracks who had his heart broken all those years ago. He’s a wealthy, successful businessman who owes his good fortune to Grace’s aunt, the woman who never gave up on him. Max can have any woman he wants, but he’s never forgotten Grace, or how she hurt him. Now he’ll have to spend the next thirty days with her—in close quarters—to honor her aunt’s last wishes, and he’s not looking forward to it.

It’s going to get very interesting as the town watches and wonders what’s going on between those two. Of course, Pop Benito understands exactly what’s happening in the house on Bayberry Street, even if Max and Grace don’t. He’s the one who helped Grace’s aunt create the thirty-day list, which he insists will finally get this couple their happily-ever-after!

Are you wondering how Pete Finnegan and Elissa Cerdi’s Christmas wedding plans are progressing? Well, they aren’t progressing. Seems some people in town can’t forgive Elissa for partnering with Gloria Blacksworth, and they’re determined to shred her reputation. Plus, Elissa is suffering from a case of mistrust every time a woman talks to her fiancé, and that’s driving Pete crazy. They better figure things out quick, or Elissa won’t be walking down the aisle…

See you in Magdalena!
