The Beach House

 

As waves lash the rocky coastline of a Maine fishing village, two people find new hope in each other.

Jess Pelletier’s life has spun out of control. Her ex-fiance has broken the bank—or at least her account—and she’s just been laid off. So she takes a bold step. The Maine fishing village of Applecross Cove looks like the perfect place to retreat to and reset her life.

When Mark Breton’s realtor aunt sends him to Jess with the lease and the key to Jess’s house, the key to her heart isn’t part of the deal. But the guy’s pretty hard to ignore. With a heart that’s gone rogue, Jess desperately clings to her plan to build a new life and a business.

Fate hasn’t given Mark very much reason to trust, but he’s come to terms with the accident that derailed his dreams years ago. When feelings for Jess bring his heart back to life, the past comes along with it and looms between them. Now they’ll both have to confront it or miss out on their one chance at love.

Writing Process

Every thousand words, I take a break and watch something. Today, I’m watching You’ve Got Mail. (The first time I saw it was in the theater where Meg Ryan and Greg Kinnear go to the movies in the film.) I did not remember how sad this movie is! Even the happy ending is sad! I need to go back to watching Escape to the Country—despite the possibility that my books might all wind up being set in character cottages with thatched roofs, wood burners, and heroes that bear a striking resemblance to Alistair Appleton (not a bad thing, mind you).
