Hi there,

I’m so excited to bring readers back to Gansett Island in less than a month! I’ve finished Kevin and Chelsea’s story, and I think you’re going to love it! One of my favorite things to write is when a character thinks he’s got it all figured out and life throws him a challenge he never saw coming. That’s what happens to Kevin McCarthy in this new installment from Gansett Island. On the eve of his divorce becoming final and being able to take the next step with his love Chelsea, Kevin is thrown a ringer that will upend his plans for the future. Also in this book, you will get:

  1. More of Mac & Maddie
  2. More of Joe & Janey
  3. A big new development for Big Mac & the McCarthy family
  4. TWO new babies
  5. More of Adam & Abby
  6. The start of Riley McCarthy’s story, which will be featured in the next full-length book in 2018

Read the first chapter of Kevin & Chelsea’s story here

And preorder NOW to read on October 24! A quick note about preorders—they help me to know that my readers are still invested in this series. If you want to see Gansett continue on its merry way, please make sure you preorder.
