Today sees the release of ‘Wind Chime Café’.
When single mother, Annie Malone, purchases a quirky Main Street café on Heron Island, she thinks she’s finally turned her dream of opening her own restaurant into a reality. Hearing rumors that a developer is about to build a five-star resort on the sleepy Chesapeake Bay island, she plans to transform the café into a premier upscale bistro. But Navy SEAL, Will Dozier, has no intention of selling his grandparents’ property to a developer. Back on Heron Island for the first time in ten years and secretly struggling with PTSD, Will decides that a fling with the new girl is the perfect way to help him “get his head straight.” The last thing Will expects is to fall in love…with his hometown and with Annie. But Will’s life and career are in San Diego with the SEALs. Can Annie’s love and the healing magic of the island be enough to convince him to stay?

I was lucky enough to be given an ARC copy of ‘Wind Chime Café’ which I devoured as soon as I could! This is my review:
‘A beautiful story which hooked me immediately with an opening that pulled on my heartstrings.
We begin with Annie, a single mother, arriving on Heron Island searching for a new beginning with her daughter. The author’s beautiful words weave an intricate and believable relationship between mother and child, and hint at a damaged past as they try to renovate a local café.
Then we meet Will, a rough and ready Navy SEAL, battling his own demons.
Can Heron Island provide safety and more?
The author has a way with words that draws you deep into life on the island and connects you with her characters. Every character is well drawn and fully developed to the point that you become part of them and their dreams. Gorgeous detail and imagery bring Heron Island to life setting you right within the story, making you twirl like a butterfly as the island infuses your senses. Taste the ocean, see the colours and inhale the aroma of sweet cinnamon rolls. You’ll hear crashing waves and the story will touch you, leaving you wanting more…’
