Lake of Dreams, A Fortune Bay Romance - Prequel Novella

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A ramshackle cabin on the lake—a haven for people at the crossroads of their lives.
New Cover!!!  This prequel novella, the introduction to The Fortune Bay Series, is the perfect summer read.

Since his wife’s death two years ago, Alex Potter has struggled to stay afloat. Now, losing his grandfather, always his rock in the tough times, is the last straw. The day after the funeral, Alex goes AWOL from the family firm and retreats to his grandfather’s island lake house in Fortune Bay, the only place he’s ever really felt at home.

Colleen Murphy’s maternal time bomb's not just ticking, it's ready to explode. When her live-in artist partner tells her his plans don’t include a family, Colleen heads home to Fortune Bay. Working in Seattle didn’t suit her anyway, away from the lake and forest she loves, so she’s back on Majestic Lake for the summer, living in the cabin, helping out at the marina and looking for Mr. Right.

A secretive drifter, Alex isn’t the solid family guy Colleen is looking for. But as together they spearhead a local environmental battle, he wonders if he might finally have found something worth fighting for.

Dear Readers,

The Fortune Bay series is near to my heart. I have lived in a small town in the Pacific Northwest much like Fortune Bay for a long time. Rural and small town families struggle with the same problems people everywhere do, and the books delve into themes of domestic life relevant to contemporary women.   But small town life is slower, with time for coffee—or wine—with women friends, where industrious people (like us) can start a business and follow their dreams, and where neighbors are nearby when you need help and even when you don’t.

For years I spun stories on the cabin on the lake just down the road from our house, and now I’m happy to be able to share them with you. Part romance, part family saga, I hope you grow as fond of the Murphy family, our introduction to Fortune Bay, as I have. Lake of Dreams is a fun story. Check out the first few pages here or on my website

Welcome to Fortune Bay.
