Summer Beach Welcome Kit

Hello there! It’s so lovely to meet you. Thank you for visiting Summer Beach, my fictional village on the coast of Southern California. Welcome to this sunny small town, where challenges keep everyone pulling together.

summer beach welcome kit with beach reads, beach bag, and summer hatThis is a friendly community full of interesting people. It’s a wonderful spot to land if you’re looking for a warm welcome, and you’re sure to meet folks you’ll soon think of as friends. Read on and find out why readers say, “Life is better in Summer Beach.” Download the Summer Beach Welcome Kit now from me. Or get it from your favorite retailer.

Meet the Families & Friends: Family Trees

As a good neighbor does, I would like to welcome you with some background on the village and the families who live here. Meeting so many people at once can be a little daunting, so I’ve created family trees to introduce you to the Bay family in Summer Beach, the Moore-Delavie family at the Coral Cottage on the other side of town, and the Raines family on nearby Crown Island.

Reading Order

Readers often ask about reading order. While you can start at the beginning of any of my series, you might enjoy beginning with Seabreeze Inn, the first book I wrote in the series.

Starting with Seabreeze Inn, you’ll meet sisters Ivy and Shelly Bay. If you begin with Coral Cottage, you’ll meet Marina Moore and Jack Ventana.

Ivy and Marina are old friends, so you’ll see them make brief appearances in each other’s series, just as if you were in Summer Beach and happened to see them around town.

You’ll soon meet everyone in Summer Beach. And while each series can stand on its own, it’s fun when you spot characters from another series (readers often call these Easter eggs). Java Beach is gossip central in Summer Beach, so imagine stopping by for one of Mitch’s special coffees or a refreshing cooler to hear all the news.

My latest summer series is Crown Island. While you can read this on its own, starting with Beach View Lane, if you read Seabreeze Reunion before it, you’ll discover how this tiny island is tied to Summer Beach. But don’t worry, you’ll figure it all out. Folks in Summer Beach and Crown Island are friendly, and they’re happy to show you around.
