The Starlight Point Stories

When I was a college student, I escaped textbooks and spent my summer days working at an amusement park. My experience four summers in a row became the inspiration for Starlight Point Stories published by Harlequin Heartwarming. The first book in the series, Under the Boardwalk, was published in January, 2016, and introduces the Hamilton family, owners of Starlight Point. The summer resort and amusement park has just been transferred to the second generation upon the sudden death of their father, and siblings Jack, June, and Evie have some surprises in store. 

In Under the Boardwalk, Jack Hamilton tackles the emotional roller coaster of running an amusement park that he discovers is deeply in debt. In addition to making sure the rides and beaches welcome summer visitors, he also negotiates a deal with the park’s food vendors. Augusta Murphy leases three bakeries at Starlight Point, but she also leads the other vendors in their opposition to the terms of the new lease. She spends the summer making tasty treats and sugar cookies while trying very hard not to let down her friends and fall in love with the new owner of Starlight Point. 

Carousel Nights follows the story of June Hamilton. She left Starlight Point seven years ago to pursue her dream of dancing on Broadway. Talented and ambitious, she also struggles with a knee injury she won’t admit to anyone. Coming home for the summer to Starlight Point gives her the chance to rest her knee while revamping the live theater shows at the amusement park. She never plans to stay past the end of summer…until she reconnects with a former love who is now the head of the maintenance department at Starlight Point. Mel Preston is as handsome and charming as ever, but he also has a young son whose heart he won’t allow to be broken by another woman who won’t stick around. As the summer passes, Mel and June have to find a way to put love first.

The third book in the series, Meet Me on the Midway, releases in December, 2016. The youngest Hamilton, Evie, has her own roller coaster love story with a fire inspector who challenges every one of her plans for expanding and improving Starlight Point. With a dark past shadowing his every move, firefighter Scott Bennett forces Evie to decide what she really wants for the future of Starlight Point…and for herself.

I hope you will love being taken along for a trip to a summer resort where the sound of carousels and roller coasters mixes with the aroma of French fries and cotton candy. Falling in love at Starlight Point has its ups and downs, but it’s always thrilling and worth the wait!

— Amie

Everyone's counting on him

With the sudden death of his father, Jack Hamilton finds himself running the family amusement park, Starlight Point. His first job? Balance the books, and that means raising the rent for vendors like baker Augusta Murphy.

Gus won't accept the new contract…not without a fight. She rallies the other vendors and sets out to negotiate with Jack. At least, she tries. How do you play hardball with a man who's charming and kind and still grieving? Gus needs to figure it out fast, because the closer she gets to Jack, the more she risks losing everything.



Amie Denman lives in Ohio with her husband, sons, cats, and dog. When she's not reading or writing, she enjoys walking and playing outside. Born with an overdeveloped sense of curiosity, she's been known to chase fire trucks on her bicycle just to see what's going on. Amie believes that everything is fun: especially roller coasters, wedding cake, and falling in love.

Passion Flowers
by Molly Charles
Adult Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 300 pages
August 10th 2016 by The Wild Rose Press, Inc.

Ambitious career woman Leigh Taylor Cole and laid-back islander Deke Kearney have nothing in common—except a sizzling chemistry that turns their lives upside down and makes Leigh question her promise to bring him home to Seattle.

But Deke's going nowhere with the uptight mainlander. Until, that is, kidnappers threaten his son's safety and send the threesome into hiding in a secluded up-island cabin.

Proximity and provocative Maui breezes work their magic, forging a passionate bond between Leigh and Deke and forcing Leigh to face her greatest fear. And eventually to unlock a secret buried so deeply in her past, she's hidden it even from herself.

It's the Grand Finale Tour for FOR LOVE OR MONEY by TARA TAYLOR QUINN!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Grand Finale for
For Love or Money
By Tara Taylor Quinn

We hope you enjoyed this tour with the fun recipes, excerpts, and reviews!
If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now...

Launch - Welcome

Welcome to a brand new ttq series!! Family Secrets is the name of a reality cooking show. Contestants compete with secret family recipes. And every single book in the series has a hero or heroine effected by a family secret. This series is ttq intense emotional fiction at its best...

Katie's Clean Book Collection - Review

"There are a few threads to the story that weave together to form a great book recipe. There is the (clean) romance thread, which has a gradual and natural progression, as well as a tight-knit family thread. There is also an extended family thread, of sorts. Janie has a very close friend and Cor and her husband, Joe, are the family that Janie never had. Add a budding friendship between two unlikely kids and a cooking show and you have a fun, new series. I recommend this book to readers who love any of these elements."

deal sharing aunt - Excerpt from the prequel novella, The Marriage Gift

It hurt too much to live with someone who treated you as though you were invisible half the time, and someone who didn't know you the rest of the time. And hurt too much to live with him knowing that you were no longer making him happy.

underneath the covers - Cooking Party Casserole

I love to cook. When I’m in the kitchen, making something, I feel creative. And yet…it’s far more of a mindless pursuit than my day job – writing. And my night job – writing. Cooking relaxes me. And yet it stimulates me, too. It allows my mind to wander – to plot – and it’s also a comfort – fulfilling a physiological need. But here’s the shadow side secret – I love to cook because when I’m cooking, I’m in control. I choose what I’m going to eat. And I choose how it’s going to be prepared. If I want onions, I add them. If I don’t want pepper, there is none. If I want to put steak in macaroni and cheese, it goes in. (A particular favorite. I know. Shudder.)

Becky on Books - Review

"A sweet romance, and first in a new series!....The concept of a reality cooking show based on family recipes is a fun one–I’m definitely looking forward to more from this series!"

EskieMama Reads - Why Romance

For Love of Money is a romance with a happy ending. It’s a clean read. A family read. It’s also a ttq novel which means it’s going to have some intense emotional fiction on those pages. I don’t choose what to write about. I write what comes to me.

Mel's Shelves - Review

"I loved the cooking show they were on and that it was family recipes--the tried and true kind. The way it played out kept me guessing until the end as to which one of them would win, or if it would even be someone else. This book is a great addition to the Heartwarming line and I enjoyed it from beginning to end! I'm definitely looking forward to reading more!"

Brooke Blogs - Excerpt from the prequel novella, The Marriage Gift

The questions and answers flew back and forth while Joe listened. Dawson did great. He didn’t like the bright lights on stage, but when Janie picked him up and stepped back out of the lights, the little guy had grinned and waved non-stop and the audience loved him. They’d been invited to a private dinner with Natasha Stevens and some of her people, to discuss the upcoming season, and she’d call whenever they were through. She told them to be sure to watch the show.

Books & Spoons - Review

"This is a story that it is easy to sink into, and forget about everything around you. I felt for the characters, I sympathized with them. I responded to their pain and worry, I felt like I was in their shoes while reading the story. It is a beautifully done, touching tale of two months in life that will change the future of two families forever, an alluring study of love with its many faces."

Beck Valley Books - Talents and Meatballs

In For Love or Money, Janie has to make meatballs one night. She does it by rote. Naturally. Instinctively. She’s dealing with threats from an ex-husband to take her son from her. With money issues. And still finding the time to give her four-year-old special needs angel every minute of the day that he needs from her. She’s feeling like, no matter how hard she tries, she’s just not enough. That she doesn’t have the ‘gifts’ to be enough.

Thoughts of a Blonde - Review

"A heartfelt book that touches on so many lessons in life. There’s not a huge amount of romance in it, but there’s a growing love and affection that stems from two families torn apart by heartache, that find their ways to happiness again … together!"

Getting Your Read On - Review

"This book is gentle, slow moving and full of emotional struggle for the characters. There are lots of real life challenges represented. This is a clean read with the Harlequin Heartwarming line..."

Love, Laughter, Friendship - Review

"Overall, I loved the book and the characters. Ms. Taylor Quinn is one of my all time favorite Harlequin authors and she never misses with me."

Book Reviews & More by Kathy - Excerpt from For Love or Money

His stomach tightened a bit. So much was at stake. He was a bit…curious, too. He’d never been in a television studio before. And while, in some ways – the intense lighting for one – it reminded him a bit of an operating room – it was also very…different. As the contestants came in one by one, each taking a solo walk across the stage for the camera footage, he got a little caught up in their excitement, too.

Maya's Musings - Character Interview

Q. What or who is the greatest love of your life?

A. Well now that’s a tough one. My daughter of course. But I’ve just met this woman and if you’d forgive me for getting a bit un-me-like (looking down briefly and then back up) I think she’s getting to me in a way that’s out of my control.

Wishful Endings - Life Has No Easy Answers

For Love or Money – there’s no ‘or’ for me. It’s always for love. But sometimes loving means needing money. Most particularly when you’re a single mother of a special needs child who needs therapy that isn’t free.

And don't forget to check out TTQ's visit tomorrow, August 13th, over at Harlequin Junkie!

She can't afford to lose this…or him

There's no way that struggling single mom Janie Young is going to lose Family Secrets. Not even to Dr. Burke Carter. The prize money and media exposure from the cooking-competition show will secure the future for her and her son, who has special needs. Sure, Burke is a talented chef with his own reasons to win, but he already has so much: wealth, a beautiful daughter, great looks…and definitely her attention. As their families become closer, Janie is beginning to care too much about him. But she can't afford to get involved. Not when everything is riding on beating him.

On tour with Prism Book Tours.

Welcome to the Cover Reveal for
Oak and Mistletoe
By J.Z.N. McCauley

Coming October 11th 2016...


A Druid Curse, A Prophesied Love, A Consuming Vengeance…

Catherine Green, along with her twin sister and older brother, travels to Ireland on a college graduation trip. Her vacation takes a permanent turn when she lands her dream job at an art and history museum on her beloved Emerald Isle. She meets a handsome stranger named Bowen, an expert of sorts on local ancient studies. Though their first meetings are turbulent at best, Catherine finds herself drawn to him.

Unaware that she is the key to breaking a hidden curse, Catherine unleashes the evil madman Conall and his druid followers, imprisoned since ancient times. Tragedy and loss ensue, sprouting within Catherine the deep seeds of rage that thrust her onto the damaging path of vengeance. Confused by the enigma that is Bowen, his mixed signals, and her own feelings, she is swept away with him on an unexpected journey surrounded by myth and long-forgotten knowledge. In order to stop the evil plans of Conall and his reunified army, Catherine must entwine her fate with peril. Her survival is trivial to her as long as Conall dies. She’ll do whatever it takes.

Advance Reader Copy Requests: For bloggers and reviewers interested in requesting an Advance Reader Copy of Oak & Mistletoe, please let the author know via her Contact Form.

It's the Grand Finale for SOPHIE'S PATH by CATHERINE LANIGAN!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Grand Finale for
Sophie's Path
By Catherine Lanigan

We hope you enjoyed coming along with us and Frenchie, as we got to know more about Sophie's and Jack's stories! If you missed any of the tour stops, go back and check them out now...

Launch - From Frenchie's Point of View



Bark! Sorry. Hi! My name is Frenchie. I’m a six and a half pound Yorkie Poo and I’m here to welcome you to “The Shores of Indian Lake” series by Catherine Lanigan. If you are returning to our small town, I’m glad to meet you, too. This is a new role for me, being a star, I mean. I’ve been a rescue dog, which wasn’t fun. I like to have a family. In fact, I have to have humans to love. Humans can be fun but they can also be pretty clueless about the essentials in life. Take Sophie Mattuchi and Jack Carter, for instance. I thought I’d never get these two together.

Katie's Clean Book Collection - Review

"I adored Frenchie, the dog, who really helped thread the story line together. The characters are multifaceted and have depth. I love the process they each developed in. This is a town that I would love to read more about.

I recommend this to readers who enjoy a clean romance with good characters and depth."



Rockin' Book Reviews - Excerpt

Still, the guy moved with the grace of a panther. He was the kind she couldn’t help being attracted to. Her nerve endings sizzled as if touched with electrodes. She couldn’t stop the pounding of blood through her veins that didn’t come from exercise. It was automatic. She was being Sophie.

Brooke Blogs - Sophie Mattuchi



Jeremy was a heroin addict. Sometimes he would pass out and forget to feed me or give me water. He loved me very much and I loved him. That’s when he decided he had to give me up. The day we met Sophie, I knew she had a heart as big as outdoors.

Hardcover Feedback - Review

"I really liked Sophie. I loved her desire to help others, how she volunteered and helped her friends, but I didn't like how she stretched herself so thinly...but thought it was nice she had people in her life that cared and tried to keep her in check."



Wishful Endings - This or That

Are you guys ready to get to know a little more about Catherine? Here we go:

Chocolate or fruity candy?
Chocolate… Always

I'm with you there 100%. :) Read a book or watch TV?
Read and read more. I seldom watch television anymore, but I do watch movies on DVD.

Nicole's Book Musings - Jack Carter



Meeting Jack for a little dog like me was pretty intimidating at first. He’s a big guy. Strong. And handsome—for a human. He looks like that movie star, Hugh Jackman. Jack’s been running for years. The first thought in my head was that if I came to live with him, he might want me to run with him. He has long legs. Mine are short and I knew this wasn’t going to work.

EskieMama Reads - Excerpt

Sophie continued drying his pants’ legs, pretending she hadn’t heard what he’d just said. She was thankful she was on the floor because being this close to Jack, in this intimate setting, had turned her bones to jelly.



deal sharing aunt - Interview

What would you like my readers to know?

I especially love to hear from readers. It is from your comments and desires that I steer my course of the next book. God willing, I hope to write 26 Shores of Indian Lake stories in all. In each of the up-coming books, I introduce new characters who will have their own stories in the future. Mrs. Beabots will always be the anchor that holds everyone together, the matchmaker who wants to see every one happy.

Colorimetry - Humans Can be So Silly



As a dog, I hear a lot of gossip and advice-giving. I heard every word of Sophie’s concern for me when she and Mrs. Beabots were making tarts for the Recovery Alliance.

Jack’s office is a hot-bed of confidential material. Of course, this is due to his clients who are buying insurance to protect their children and families. But sometimes, they don’t want insurance for errant children or grandchildren. Sometimes they have lost their jobs and have to stop their premiums. Or some have medical issues. It’s really sad what humans have to deal with sometimes. No wonder they need us dogs so desperately to love them.

Getting Your Read On - Review

". . . but the story is a good one and worth sticking with. If you love a gentle romance with slow build, you will love this book."

underneath the covers - Nurses Make Great Girlfriends



I’ve decided that if I were a human and since I’m female, I’d be a nurse like Sophie. For starters, even though she was on her “self-improvement” regime and she was eating healthy, her nursing career also taught her that we all only live once.

Falling Leaves - Review

"I definitely recommend this book to everyone, whether you're in the middle of struggle or you're just content with your life.

A story of trust, forgiveness, hope, pain, death and love that you will cherish."

Her choice. His consequences.

Nurse Sophie Mattuchi has seen a lot of angry patients in the ER, but no one's ever rattled her like Jack Carter. He has no right to blame her for his friend's death. Sophie did everything she could. Didn't she? Yet his accusations sting, and that sets off all kinds of internal alarms. She's never cared this much about any man's opinion of her. But Jack is different. He stirs up feelings. Strong feelings. Guilt. Anger. Attraction. Curiosity. Sympathy. Sophie's definitely not interested in Jack, but even if she was, he'd never forgive her for the decision she made that night in the hospital. Would he?
