Book 2 in the Ripple Effect Series is HERE!!!

So excited to announce Silver Linings by Kaylee Baldwin!

I was lucky enough to read an earlier draft of this book--even before I'd finished writing Righting a Wrong. The story sucked me in from the get-go, and I couldn't put it down until I'd finished. The characters, the fun plot, the message--it was all so beautifully written. I laughed, I cried, and I sighed. But mostly, I smiled. I loved this book, and I couldn't have asked for a better prequel to Jace's story.  Thank you, Kaylee!!!

I hope you love it as much as I did!

Description: Drew Westfall wants nothing more than to forget what he had to do in the name of "smart" business. Cutting off all ties with his parents—including handing over the entire contents of his trust fund to a charity—he takes off for Bridger, Colorado where his best friend has an extra room for him. It doesn't take long for him to realize that his business degree won’t do him much good in a town as small as Bridger, but he's broke and has nowhere else to go.

Eden Torresi has every reason to wallow. Not only did she have to sell her house to pay for her mother’s medical expenses, but she had to drop out of school and is in a relationship with a guy unwilling to commit. But Eden isn't the wallowing type. Instead, she spends most of her time taking care of the seniors at Silver Linings Assisted Living. When she learns that her boyfriend's new roommate is down on his luck, she reaches out to offer what help she can. But the more time they spend together, the more complicated things get, especially when the seniors of Silver Linings decide to play matchmaker.

The Ripple Effect Series has BEGUN!!!!

This is such an exciting day for all of us who have been involved with this series. Last summer, Kaylee Baldwin, Karey White, and I decided to team up for a collaborative project. After batting around a few ideas, we came up with one we were all excited about and called it The Ripple Effect series. And as soon as we got Julie N. Ford, Donna K. Weaver, and Jennifer Griffith to join us, we knew it would be a great series.

Here's the concept: At some point during book 1, the main character does something that will, in some way, affect the life of the main character in book 2, and so on down the line. Although all the books are separate from each other and each story can stand alone, they are best read in order. Home Matters is now available, 

The Ripple Effect Romance Series 

"Like a pebble tossed into calm water, a simple act can ripple outward and have a far-reaching effect on those we meet, perhaps setting a life on a different course—one filled with excitement, adventure, and sometimes even love."

And now, introducing Home Matters, by Julie N. Ford:
We knew we scored big when Julie agreed to be part of this project. I'm a huge fan of her writing, and this book ranks right up there with Countdown to Love for me. It's fun, sassy, romantic, and wonderful. The perfect curl-up-with-a-handful-of-chocolate-covered-almonds type read.

Home Matters (A Ripple Effect Romance Novella, Book 1)
by Julie N. Ford

According to her mother, Olivia Pembroke was born to be a star. But how is she supposed to be famous when she can't even get a decent acting gig? Her lucky break comes when she lands an audition for a wildly popular home improvement show. Even though she has no design training and has never held a power tool, she refuses to let that stop her. She's confident that her destiny is finally within reach. 

When her affections are torn between her heartthrob co-host and the irritating, yet somehow endearing lead contractor, does she continue to reach for the stars? Or does she design a new happily ever after? One that leads not to the fading lights of fame and fortune, but to a love that will burn forever.
