Hart of Dixie Meets Hallmark Channel


Just a city girl, living in a lonely world


Displaced Steel Magnolia Norah Burke has always been an overachiever. The word "failure" was never a part of her vocabulary. So it comes as quite a shock when she gets canned from the marketing firm where she's built her career after threatening to blow the whistle on some shady business practices. Licking her wounds, she heads to her best friend in Mississippi for a little home-grown Southern comfort.


Just a small town boy


With his iron-clad Mississippi roots, Councilman Cam Crawford is a man who values tradition, preservation, and the love of a good woman. When a big box warehouse store tries to capitalize on his hometown's economic downturn, he's not about to let anyone's ambition destroy what he holds dear. He'll raise hell if he has to in order to stop them.


Don't stop believin'


This unlikely pair just might be the perfect allies--in war and out. But as the battle to stop GrandGoods heats up and sparks of attraction turn to something more, will this city girl's bigger-picture perspective go with this small-town boy's "keep it as it is" attitude? And even if they can send the suits packing and get the town on its feet again, can she really give up her corner office and power lunches for the corner booth at the local diner? What's a nice executive like her going to do in a place like this?

 A madcap, modern, marriage-of-convenience tale sure to leave fans begging for more
Maybe there hasn't been actual blood, other than a few paper cuts, but Myles has put plenty of sweat into his independent, local newspaper, and he's even willing to admit to a few manly tears. Certainly, the paper has been his mistress since he moved to the small town of Wishful, Mississippi, and he doesn't feel it's hyperbolic in the least to say it owns a piece of his soul. He's building his dream, independent of the life laid out for him by his family, and that means everything. There's nothing he wouldn't do to ensure its success.
Piper fell hard for Myles when they co-stared in the production of White Christmas that saved Wishful's historic Madrigal Theater. Not in love, she's careful to remind herself, but into very serious like, and certainly outrageous, chemistry-fueled attraction. But Piper knows that the bright lights of the stage can wreak havoc with perspective. She's been burnt by them before, when an on-stage passion fizzled into disappointment and heartache. That's why she put on the brakes with Myles, and she admits to herself that the fact that he played by her rules and waited only adds to his appeal.
When Myles tells her that a major investor is pulling out of the paper, leaving him with a huge loan to repay or lose his control over what he's built, Piper is devastated for him. But when he jokingly admits that the best option he's come up with is to marry a showgirl to gain access to a trust fund, well, that just sounds like a plan to Piper. After all, why not take this great guy on marriage test drive?  He's worth having just for this moment, however long it lasts.  But as their fake marriage turns alarmingly real, they'll have to decide if they're in it for the moment or forever.  
It was a terrible idea. But that doesn’t stop Sarah Meadows from saying yes to covering for her identical twin sister at staff orientation week at Camp Firefly Falls.  It’s just a few days and she'll be back to finishing her master's thesis, right?  But when her sexy, ex-park ranger partner figures out her secret, she’s got her work cut out convincing him not to turn her in.
Beckett Hayes knows he should report Sarah to the boss, but instead, he finds himself agreeing to train her.  There’s just something about those big, doe eyes and all that sass.  But when Sarah starts to matter more than he planned, the pressure's on.  Can he convince her to take the road less traveled or will this one week have to be enough?
A novelette of approximately 16k words.  This story is a crossover introduction to the Camp Firefly Falls series.  Check out my full novel in the series, Second Chance Summer.
