Sometimes, doing the right thing backfires…

Bella Amaud is desperate when she learns her business and the home she lives in with her two boys are about to be whisked out from under her. As she scrambles to maintain her fragile financial security and independence, she fears she may lose more than just The Shop on Main and her home.

Nothing is working out like Bella planned—she finds out the man she is falling for, Owen Campbell, is the businessman at the center of all her problems.

Owen has secretly longed to belong—somewhere—anywhere—his whole life. When he decides to give his long-lost brother, Jake, back his birthright, he unknowingly thwarts his briefly held hope of a place where he can put down roots and a family he longs for.

Nothing is working out like Owen planned—neither Bella nor Jake wants anything to do with him.

How can a man who is used to being in control and a woman determined to make it all on her own find a way to happiness? 

The Shop on Main is Book One of the Comfort Crossing series. Bella and her best friends, Jenny and Becky Lee, navigate the heartaches and triumphs of love and life in the small southern town of Comfort Crossing, Mississippi.

About the author

Kay Correll writes stories that are a cross between contemporary romance and women's fiction. She likes her women's fiction with a healthy dose of happily-ever-after. Her stories are set in the fictional small southern town of Comfort Crossing, Mississippi. While her books are a series, each one can be read as a stand-alone story.

Kay lives in Missouri and can often be found out and about with her camera, taking a myriad of photographs, often incorporating them into her book covers. When not lost in her writing or photography, she can be found spending time with her ever-supportive husband, playing with her puppies, or working in her garden. Their rowdy gaggle of five boys are all grown now, not that Kay believes that males ever truly grow up, but she's fine with that.

But Clay has a secret of his own…

Sometimes life offers second chances

Madeline Stuart has made one too many careless mistakes at her high-powered job and is asked to take a highly suggested vacation. 

But who could blame her scattered thinking? She’s reeling from a breakup with her long-term boyfriend and her mother’s recent death. While trying to fill the endless hours of free time, Madeline’s curiosity is piqued when she finds an old letter hidden in her grandmother’s antique writing desk addressed to Josephine Amaud in Comfort Crossing.

It seems like a perfect time for a road trip to deliver the long-lost letter. What better way to keep busy?

Deserted by his big-city girlfriend because he’s a “country bumpkin," Gil Amaud, a business owner in Comfort Crossing, Mississippi, has sworn off women…

… then he meets Madeline who needs his help. How could he refuse her? 

They soon discover the love letter was written many years ago by Josephine’s first beau, Paul, but she never received it. While they try to unravel the mystery of how the letter ended up in the desk and work together to locate Paul, both Gil and Madeline try to deny the attraction developing between them.

Can a big-city woman and a small-town businessman help reunite the star-crossed lovers? And can they find a way to put aside their differences to build a future together in this sweet, heartwarming tale of love and forgiveness?

Maybe, just maybe, a second chance is all they really need.

The star-crossed lovers from the past, Josephine and Paul, continue their romance in The Wedding in the Grove — a crossover short story between the Comfort Crossing series and the Lighthouse Point series. Read more of their story and visit with other characters from Comfort Crossing in the new Lighthouse Point series.

Sometimes, the past isn’t quite what it seems…

Reluctant restauranteur, Keely Granger, wants nothing more than to escape the small town she’s lived in her whole life, but her guilt and family responsibilities keep her firmly entrenched in Comfort Crossing, Mississippi.

Lonely photojournalist, Hunt Robichaux, takes a break from his life-is-short, chase-after-your-dreams lifestyle and returns home to help his recently widowed sister and his nephews. But every responsibility he’s ever taken on ends in disaster, so he’s determined to leave before anyone starts to depend on him and gets hurt.

As Keely and Hunt’s relationship cook up to a more-than-childhood-friends level, Hunt has to decide if he's been chasing his dreams in the wrong part of the world. But as secrets from their past begin to unravel, Keely reels from the knowledge that everything she’s believed to be true is all a lie. A disaster — and the truth — threaten to tear them apart forever.

Sometimes, you do unexpected things to protect the ones you love…

Becky Lee is strong, independent, and lives on her own. She’s happy with that, really she is, but she’s always secretly longed for a family of her own. She just didn’t expect to get one quite like this—by marrying a man she barely knows to keep her nephew safe. Becky Lee owes her sister that much.

Cal would do anything to keep his nephew from a life of being raised by his grandfather, the same ruthless, do-anything-to-win man Cal has been running from for years. He’s all in on Becky Lee’s absurd marriage proposal because it just might be the only way to protect the boy. Cal owes his brother that much.

Neither is prepared for the danger that surrounds them or the attraction that builds between them after their Unexpected Wedding.

The climb up the hill takes her past sweet-smelling pink roses in full bloom and leads her to an utterly breathtaking view. Megan is happy to be home at last, but will her relationship have survived the journey?

 

It has been a difficult few years for thirty-year-old Megan Forrester, completing her apprenticeship and trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with her gorgeous boyfriend, Liam.

 

She’s returned home to compete in a local craft competition. The prize is the chance to design beautiful new gates for the estate at the bottom of the hill, a job which could secure her future in the village forever.

 

As the contest gets underway, Megan is devastated when a rival design turns out to be almost identical to hers. Someone in the close-knit community must have leaked her sketches, but who? Is it the same person spreading heartbreaking rumours about Liam?

 

Down to the last few left in the competition, Megan throws her heart and soul into a show-stopping final piece… but will winning even matter when the truth about Liam is finally revealed?

Sometimes the right person enters your life at exactly the wrong time...


For the first time in her life, struggling bakery owner Julie Farmington has something that is all hers.


She’s not interested in any entanglements or anything that takes her mind off her goal—including the handsome stranger who is only in town for a month.


Forced to take time off work, Reed Newman makes a spur-of-the-moment decision and books a trip to Belle Island, Florida. A surprising choice that goes against everything in the rigid, well-planned life he fills with constant activity to keep from dealing with his pain and guilt.


As he struggles to make peace with his past—and learn to relax—he finds himself falling for the charming owner of The Sweet Shoppe. But Julie tells herself she isn’t interested in a man who is just going to leave when he returns home. She’s not interested in adding yet one more name to the list of people who have walked out of her life.

 

She’s not interested. Really.


But emotions heat up. Reed's past and Julie's present collide and history threatens to repeat itself. 


And neither one saw it coming...


Get this heartwarming first book in the Lighthouse Point series. Three friends—Tally, Susan, and Julie—support each other through triumphs and failures, love and loss. Fall in love with Belle Island and the friendly—or not so friendly—townsfolk on this small southern island.
