All He Ever Dreamed release day!

It’s release day for Josh and Katie and we’re having a party in the Community! It’s an all-day celebration, so stop in and say hi!

All He Ever Dreamed coverJosh Kowalski is tired of holding down the fort—better known as the Northern Star Lodge—while his siblings are off living their dreams. Now that his oldest brother has returned to Whitford, Maine for good, Josh is free to chase some dreams of his own.

As the daughter of the lodge’s longtime housekeeper, Katie Davis grew up alongside the Kowalski kids. Though she’s always been “one of the guys”, her feelings for Josh are anything but sisterly. And after a hot late-night encounter in the kitchen, it’s clear Josh finally sees her as the woman she is.

Katie’s been waiting years for Josh to notice her, but now that he has, she’s afraid it’s too late. Giving her heart to a man who can’t wait to leave town is one sure way to have it broken. But Josh keeps coming up with excuses not to leave—could it be that everything he’s ever wanted is closer than he could have imagined?

    I’m hoping it will be a lot quicker. We don’t get exact release dates for Audible, but I’ll give a shout-out when it goes up! (I check every morning.)

    Soooooo glad I had today off. Loved the book!!!! I had tears in my eyes at some spots and I don’t do that often. I’ve loved all your books but Joe and Keri’s story has always been my fav. …..until now. This one has tied with being number one. Great story, can’t wait for the next one :-)
    Congratulations Again!

    I’m so glad everybody’s loving it, because this one might be favorite, too. I really loved Josh and Katie.

    And Liz is coming…soonish. I don’t have details yet, but I’ll make an announcement when everything comes to together.

    All He Ever Dreamed is up on Audible! Woohoo!

    I’m definitely writing Liz’s book. And Hailey’s, too. I’m not sure what my plans are for Max yet, but I really liked him, so I want to see him live happily ever after, too. :)

    Love Josh and Katie together. I loved it!!! Yes, now waiting for Liz and Drew? and possibly Hailey and Max. I know you can turn these around quick.

    I’m working on Liz and Drew. While I want to write happily ever afters for Hailey and Max, I’m not sure it’ll be with each other. I’ll see how it shakes out in Liz’s book. I think Max has his eye on somebody else.

    Once again, it’s a pleasure to spend time with the Kowalskis. I got more weepy in this book I think than in the others in the series, why, I’m not sure.

    (and actually I just popped in to see if anyone had already asked the question I was going to ask about Hailey. :D )

    Just finished! I loved it. Nice twist with Rose. I can’t wait for Liz to come home. Hailey and Max don’t seem to fit together but I would love to see a friend of Mitch’s find her!

    I don’t see Hailey and Max together, either. As a matter of fact, I already know who Max will live happily ever after with. Hailey’s story is still in the melting pot…

    I just finished the book it was very emotional where the others weren’t. Loved it. But i thought that Josh was alittle bit whiney. Regarding Liz. I think she’s had a crush on Drew for years. Don’t forget about the wedding!! As for Hailey and Max not to sure how they will in up. But hopefully it will be happily ever after! Can’t wait.

    So glad to hear that you’re writing Drew and Liz’s story and we still have Max and Hailey to look forward to. Look forward to getting an update on the Kowalski family and their “awesome babies!”

    really enjoyed the whole series, but this book brought out other emotions.. i related with these characters, laughed with them, and at times cried with them.. best book (so far), cant wait to read the rest!

    Loved, loved, loved this book. I’m new to the series but just finished this one tonight and found myself crying at all the good parts. I really can’t wait for Liz and Drew to get together and to hear more of what’s going on with the whole Kowalski family. I would love to get a recap of what the original group is up to now. Keep them coming.

    Just finished the book. Loved it!! I agree with the others one of my faves. Looking forward to Liz and Haileys story. Maybe Max and Jilly?

    Oh dear! As with all the others, I’ve managed to fall in love with yet another Kowalski. I, too, come from a large family, and I admire the relationship you’ve built between the brothers/cousins. Their interactions are so funny, yet so real. I find myself relating (and laughing out loud!) to much of the ribbing and teasing that goes on in the dialogue.

    Looking forward to Liz & Drew. Will Drew finally get that family he was hoping for? Am I reading too much into Liz abstaining from caffeine???

    Nancy, I never thought twice about Liz not drinking coffee….interesting theory.

    I wondered about Liz and the no caffeine thing too…
