Pop Quiz: Which Heroine Are You?

The Misty Willow Series

Three different stories.

Three very different heroines.

Shelby wants to raise her young daughters where she was happiest as a child–her grandparents’ home and farm. Family traditions are important to her, and she loves Cary Grant movies.

Dani dances to her own beat which means she sometimes puts her size six foot in her mouth. She’s imaginative, creative, and a talented photographer–though even that can get her into trouble.

Amy gets things done. Poised, intelligent, and stylish, she knows how to negotiate deals and plan elite events. She loves the city, but enjoys country life, too, especially since she can spend more time with her only nephew.

Which of these amazing ladies is most like you?

Take the Misty Willow Heroine Quiz to find out and share your result in the comments. (I’m Shelby!)

Prize Packages: Misty Willow Novels & Cary Grant Classics

A Merry Christmas Giveaway!

Christmas is the time for giving and winter is the time for curling up with a good story–a contemporary romance or a classic movie. Here’s your opportunity to win one of two fun prize packages.

Where She Belongs Giveaway

Shelby and AJ quote lines from Cary Grant movies to each other. One of their favorites is An Affair to Remember with Deborah Kerr. But as Shelby says, you can’t watch this classic without watching Sleepless in Seattle, too.

This giveaway includes an autographed copy of Where She Belongs, the first novel in the Misty Willow Series, and DVD copies of An Affair to Remember (25th Anniversary Edition) plus Sleepless in Seattle (10th Anniversary Edition).

When Love Arrives Giveaway

Dani doesn’t want Brett to know she was secretly photographing him. So when they unexpectedly meet, she says her name is Regina Lampert–the name of Audrey Hepburn’s character in the Cary Grant classic Charade.

This giveaway includes an autographed copy of When Love Arrives, the second novel in the Misty Willow Series, and a DVD copy of Charade.

Thanks for entering!

Bottle House Museum & Giveaways

Exploring Prince Edward Island: #Write31Days

Today’s Post: Exploring the PEI Bottle House Museum and Giveaway Links for When Love Arrives

I had no idea what to expect when my sister said, “Let’s go see the Bottle House.”

It’s not a historic or literary attraction–I’ll be sharing Anne of Green Gables photos later in the month!–but it is a monument to one man’s labor of love. Here’s the story:


This is Mr. Arsenault’s first project, a six-gabled house.


Here’s a peek inside. This niche houses Mr. Arsenault’s organ . . . and his photo!


Join me on Monday for photos of the Bottle Chapel and the Bottle Tavern. (Even though it’s a #Write31Day Challenge, no posts will appear on the weekends.)

Exploring Prince Edward Island: North Point


Today’s Post: Exploring Prince Edward Island and A Giveaway for When Love Arrives

#Write31Days Challenge

For October’s #Write31Days Challenge, I’m Exploring Prince Edward Island by sharing memories and photos from my recent trip. (Today is the last day to link up with the challenge, so sign up quick if you want to share your own 31 Days. Visit the Write 31 Days website for ideas and inspiration.)


The Wind & Reef Restaurant at North Point, PEI

On the recommendation of a “local,” my sister and I drove as far north as possible without driving into the sea to eat lunch at the Wind & Reef Restaurant. It’s located on the second floor of the rounded section of the building which also houses the Wind Energy Interpretive Center and a gift shop.

We were seated by one of the many windows and enjoyed the panoramic view of wind-blown clouds across an amazing blue sky and the choppy greens and grays of white-crested waves.

My sister selected clam chowder and a lobster roll while I went with the almond-crusted sole. We may not be locals (and I’m not even much of a foodie), but we definitely recommend the Wind & Reef. I hope to go back again someday.

Since I’m getting a late start on the month-long #Write31Days challenge, here are a few extra photos from our trip to North Point.

Come back tomorrow for photos of the historic West Point Lighthouse and seashore.

Your Turn

I’ve wanted to visit Prince Edward Island ever since I fell in love with Anne of Green Gables over thirty years ago. Where’s your dream vacation destination and why do you love it?
