AVAILABLE DECEMBER 10TH 2019 / GALLERY BOOKS
Charlotte Bishop is out of options in New York City. Fired, broke, and blacklisted by her former boss, she’s forced to return to her hometown of Hope Lake, PA to lick her wounds. Although she’s expecting to find a miserable place with nothing to do, she is pleasantly surprised to discover it is bustling and thriving.
She’s only supposed to be in Hope Lake temporarily until she can earn enough money to move back to New York. She’s not supposed to reconnect with her childhood friends or her beloved grandmother. She’s not supposed to find her dream job running the local florist shop. And she’s definitely not supposed to fall for not one but two of Hope Lake’s golden boys: one the beloved high school English teacher, the other the charming town doctor.
With a heart torn between two men and two cities, what’s a girl to do?

Hallmark Movies & The Romance World
I wasn’t going to write about these, and their magic, but I was sitting down to write something else and there was a new Hallmark original on TV.
So, of course I got sucked in. The best part was that I had seen it already and I still had to watch the entire thing.
What is it about these movies? They’re predictable, sure. You can usually figure out the entire plot within the first 5-10 minutes BUT SO WHAT? The world is a bit of a dumpster fire at the moment so if watching one of these beauties brings you two hours’ worth of joy, go for it.
It all leads back to love, and romance.
I saw another wildly awful post from a mainstream fiction source that was berating the romance world and its authors again. Here’s the thing, Hallmark is celebrating 10 years of Christmas movies bringing an abundance of joy to the world. The romance novel industry is a multi-billion-dollar genre that empowers women.
We are clearly doing something right, right? So, let’s go into this holiday season championing our fellow women. Support small businesses, leave a little bit of love on author’s and blogger’s posts and maybe buy a book from a new-to-you author.
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones
