The Home They Built is out now!

Happy 2021! As some of you know, I’m a planner nerd and today’s exciting because the first day of a month falling on the first day of the week (I have a Monday start calendar) is the best! I’m also excited because today’s the digital release day for The Home They Built, which means it’s all available in all formats now!

If you’re looking to kick off your February with a fun and romantic read, this book has a hot guy pretending to be a handyman to help out his beloved Gram, a woman who’s hiding why she’s really in Blackberry Bay, and the renovation of a house they’re pretending is an inn. Sparks and secrets!

There are no blueprints for this unique renovation in the latest Blackberry Bay novel from New York Times bestselling author Shannon Stacey.

Will their secrets stay hidden when the cameras start rolling?

There’s nothing Finn Weaver won’t do for his incorrigible grandmother, including pose as a live-in handyman for the TV reno show Relic Rehab. Host Anna Beckett knows good and well the Weaver house has never been a functioning inn, but taking the project got her to Blackberry Bay…the only place she’ll ever find answers about her own family. Keeping big secrets in a small town is enough of a challenge—can Finn and Anna’s romance survive the truth?

I’ve already been asked several times about whether The Home They Built is the end of the Blackberry Bay series, and the answer is…I’m not sure. It was meant to be a trilogy, along with the two Cedar Street digital-only novellas: One Summer Weekend and One Christmas Eve. (Cedar Street is a street in Blackberry Bay.) I’m working on a new series that’s similar to the Blackberry Bay books (though a little funnier, for you Kowalski fans in the crowd), but I haven’t decided if it’s actually the same town or not. I’ll definitely let you know as soon I make that decision!

Besides a fun new series, I’ve been working on a couple of novellas I’ll be releasing this year. The first I’ll be telling you about in a couple of weeks, but I can say that it’s a marriage-in-jeopardy story about two people trapped in their summer cabin together by a spring storm. And the second is a Christmas novella I didn’t get done in time to release in 2020 because…well, 2020. I’ll include more info about it in my next email, but I think those of you who’ve asked for a happy ending for Nola (a secondary character in Falling For Max are going to be excited!

More news soon, and happy reading!

    My print copy order was cancelled (but I called Harlequin today and got it re-ordered). But I bought the digital edition this morning. Can’t wait to dive in (but I have to finish adulting first).
