This collection includes the first three books in the Candle Beach series: Sweet Beginnings, Sweet Success and Sweet Promises.
A failing bookstore. A crumbling house.
This inheritance was the not-so-promising reason for Dahlia's return to the small town of Candle Beach, Washington. With a nasty trustee who is determined to keep her from succeeding and Garrett, a handsome neighbor who challenges her at every step, she doesn’t expect to have a future there.
However, the town grows on her and she sees transformations in herself that she didn't expect. With her childhood friends wanting her to stay and a developing attraction to Garrett, could Aunt Ruth's bequest be the key to Dahlia's happily ever after?
An instant connection that can weather any storm...until their dreams collide.
When Gretchen Roberts graduated from college, she planned a brief stay in her hometown of Candle Beach. Ten years later, she’s still working for her parents and wondering how her life got so off track. Luckily, she's got a plan for the future, which hinges on being hired for the lead sales job at a luxury housing development south of town. With a referral from her best friend Maggie, she's a shoo-in for the job.
But there's one little snag...
Parker Gray grew up knowing he’d work for his parents’ real estate firm in nearby Haven Shores. What he didn’t expect was that he'd be in constant competition with his older brother. He’s got to get out of there before he loses his mind, and the sales position at Oceanview Estates seems like a perfect way of reaching that goal.
Gretchen and Parker meet by chance and are instantly attracted to each other -- until they find out they're both after the same job. Who will win the coveted position? And when the dust settles, will they still want each other?
A promise between brothers. A secret that threatens to tear a budding romance apart.
Maggie Price is resilient. After her husband died, leaving her a young widow with an infant son, she returned home to Candle Beach to create a new future for them by purchasing the Bluebonnet Cafe.
She loves her life, but something feels like it’s missing...
Jake Price promised his younger brother he’d take of his wife and child if something happened to him while deployed overseas. Now, five years after his brother’s death, Jake vows to fulfill that promise and take care of Maggie and her son Alex.
Maggie tries to fight her attraction to Jake, but he knocks down her resistance and they fall in love. Will she still feel the same if she knows the real reason he’s in Candle Beach?
