All In

Meredith Hunt is content with her solo life. She owns and runs a successful Pilates studio, volunteers at the high school every week, and recently bought a house. She can take care of herself, which is good because she has a hard time relying on other people. When she’s mugged and a handsome man comes to her rescue, she doesn’t know how to accept his help-or how to stop staring into his chocolate-brown eyes.

Ace Vance moved to Bridgeport to offer his fifteen-year-old son, Finn, a better life. Here, Finn has a chance to play football for a good team and maybe even earn a college scholarship. And Ace scored a job at a top-notch garage, where he gets to fix up classic cars. Plus, they could both use some distance from Finn’s toxic mom. The last thing on his mind is falling in love, but he can’t help offering assistance to a gorgeous redhead in need.

Thrown together by a careless criminal, Meredith and Ace can’t deny their attraction. But can they open their hearts-and their lives-to make room for love?

Shelley Shepard Gray’s Bridgeport Social Club series explores how communities can come together to support each other, whether it’s around a poker table, in a Pilates studio, or anywhere in between. Get ready to fall in love with a group of men and women who, even when they feel lost, refuse to lose hope.

Welcome to

The Walnut Creek Series, which launches in February with the enovella Friends to the End, is very close to my heart. Yes, it’s an Amish series set in Holmes County, a place I know well. But beyond the bonnets and the buggies, it’s a series about how complex yet rewarding friendship can be. The central characters are a group of men and women in their mid-twenties who reunite after one of their own dies suddenly.

This group, The Eight, are a varied lot. Some are Amish, some Mennonite, and a couple are even English. They treat each other the way I know many folks in the ‘real’ Walnut Creek area do-their differences don’t keep them from connecting with one another.   

That’s why-to me at least-this series isn’t just a new Amish set of romances. The books tackle larger subjects and focus on people who are struggling with disappointments, celebrating achievements, longing for things just out of their reach…and yes, simply enjoying life. The Eight’s lives aren’t perfect and everything doesn’t always turn out the way they’d planned. However, they are there for each other and know that God is with them, too.

I hope you enjoy these stories. Some, like Friends to the End, are short e-novellas. Others, like The Patient One, (April’s release) are full length novels. My hope is that you’ll find one or two of the characters to root for. Or, maybe you’ll even find yourself cheering for the entire Eight. I know I did!  

Happy reading!
