Ev Bishop is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author, who believes in the power of fiction to transform lives. We both lose ourselves—and find ourselves!—in good stories. The best of them entertain, making us laugh, cry, rage, and/or happy sigh, but also reflect something emotionally true and provide insight into human experience. Best known for her contemporary small-town romance series, River’s Sigh B & B, Ev is also a long-time columnist with the Terrace Standard newspaper and a prolific scribbler of . . . other things. Her articles, essays, short stories, and poems appear in a variety of publications, and she also writes under the pen name Toni Sheridan.
When Ev’s nose isn’t in a book or her fingers aren’t on her keyboard, you’ll find her with her family and dogs, or playing outside with friends, usually at the lake or in some garden somewhere. . . .
Envisioning herself a lone cowboy, she avoids any relationships that might risk her heart or cause pain. There’s wonderful fun to be had if you don’t fall prey to the ludicrous notion of true love!
Lately, however, Sam is niggled by doubts. She’s not as content as she was. Plus her daughter Aisha has tracked her down—seventeen-years-old and pregnant. Despite misgivings, Sam checks into River’s Sigh Bed-and-Breakfast to meet her.
Then widower Charles Bailey, Aisha’s adoptive father, shows up, and Sam can’t control her outrage. What was her sacrifice for? She could’ve raised the kid to follow her stupid footsteps all on her own. And topping it off? Charlie’s a neurotic, stodgy jerk—even if he is ridiculously hot.
The longer Sam stays at River’s Sigh, exploring the wild outdoors—and her own inner desires—the more her terror grows. Maybe Charlie isn’t so terrible after all. Maybe his approach to life is actually refreshing. Maybe all this family stuff is something she could get hooked on.
Yet they’re opposites in every way, and worse: he’s her biological child’s adoptive dad. A romance between them would be too weird, wouldn’t it? Every part of Sam screams play it safe, run.
But what if, in spurning Charlie and Aisha, she’s turning her back on everything she never knew she wanted?
Dragged there for a reunion with Cade’s screwed up family, Noelle is confused, resentful—and considering divorce.
Noelle never would’ve predicted she’d be trapped in a loveless marriage, but Cade’s more distant and aloof than ever, plus she’s sure he had an affair. What other choice does she have? Husbands who cheat don’t become faithful, and wives who put up with it become bitter and lonely. She won’t have that for herself, and she won’t model that for her children.
Cade has always clung tightly to Noelle, his beloved daughters, and their life together. He’s not good at expressing himself, but he’s been confident, even cocky, that if he’s strong enough, works hard enough, provides well enough, Noelle will know how he feels. But now one moment of stupidity that wasn’t what it appeared has wrecked everything. He wants her to believe in him the way his parents and brothers never have, with no explanations necessary—but maybe that’s unfair.
He’ll swallow his pride. He’ll find the words. He’ll do anything to fix their relationship. But what if it’s too late? Can shattered love ever be restored?
Staying with his lovebird brother and sister-in-law at River’s Sigh B & B proves unbearable, only rubbing in his deep loneliness. As does getting to know one of the other guests, a damsel determined to get herself out of distress, without any help from him. What is it about sweet, troubled Katelyn that makes Brian want to go all knight-in-shining-armor? And why is he suddenly longing for things he doesn’t even believe in, like true love, marriage . . . ?
Single mom and wannabe entrepreneur Katelyn Kellerman needs to escape from Greenridge. Her safety, and that of her children, relies on it. Plus, she knows the hazards of trusting someone all too well. So why, after meeting Brian Archer, does she wish she could just stay put and build a home? With him.
No matter how they fight their feelings, Brian and Katelyn fall for each other hook, line and sinker—but life isn’t a fairy tale. Brian can’t live in limbo forever, Katelyn’s ex is increasingly threatening, and she needs to secure a future for her and her kids. Can they beat the odds, salvage the ashes of their pasts, and risk everything for love, or are they just fishing for trouble?
Christmas, wonderful as it is, can also be a time when losses, failures, and secret hurts hit extra close to home. It certainly is for Bryn Hale and Sean Carson, two strangers traveling a lonely stretch of highway in a brutal snowstorm.
Divorced by her husband because of her inability to have children, and devalued by her family who sympathize with her ex, Bryn believes all the negative things she’s been told about herself. She decided long ago that love and marriage are permanently off the table.
Special event organizer Sean Carson is mourning the loss of a dream. Officially separated for six months, he finally knows beyond doubt that the woman he was with for ten years doesn’t love him and maybe never has. All he wants is to love fully, totally and forever—and to have someone love him the same way. But does that kind of relationship even exist?
When a car accident forces their introduction and lands Bryn and Sean together at magical River’s Sigh B & B, Sean finds himself smitten. Bryn feels the attraction too, but her desire for self-protection runs deep. Plus, Sean has tipped his hand. He wants kids. It only makes sense for them to go their separate ways, but matters of the heart don’t always follow logic. Bryn musters her courage and lets herself fall for Sean.
Then Sean gets terrible-wonderful news from his ex: he’s going to be a dad. What will he do? Be the loyal, stand-by-your-woman man he’s always thought he was and go back to her—or keep his promise to Bryn?
Their love was an unexpected gift. Can it last?
The disfiguring scars on Gray Robertson’s body are nothing compared to those marring his damaged heart and psyche. A loner by nature, the brutal murder of his young wife and son made him a hermit. He lives off-grid in the wilderness of northern Canada with only his dog for company, finding isolation far easier to survive than loving people and having them torn away.
When his closest neighbor, Jo at River’s Sigh B & B, ropes him into giving self-defense lessons to some washed up musician, Gray figures it’s a safe way to make a bit of cash to see him through winter.
As Mia and Gray get to know each other, neither are prepared for the tumultuous, conflicting emotions that leave them reeling. In him, a convoluted mix of desire, protectiveness, and misplaced fury. In her, a complex stew of appreciation, longing, and apprehension.
Then a foolish decision puts Mia's life in peril and forces questions she and Gray are both scared to answer. Can love heal old wounds, or are they too damaged to risk further hurt?
