About this ebook

She’s determined to avoid romance and happily ever after. Life has other plans…

Veterinarian Tina Archer is grumpy and proud. Being widowed young from a terrible marriage can do that to a person. But she’s been living life to the fullest and isn’t a bit sorry.

Until a routine medical exam reveals the toll her freedom-loving lifestyle—and the stress that comes with being a single mom—has taken on her health. 

She knows it’s time for a life makeover and she’ll do what needs to be done.

But when her son’s Big Brother program matches him with the annoyingly charming Clark, everything gets really complicated. Because how is she supposed to handle a man who seems so eager to knock down all the walls she’s built around her heart?

All Tina knows for sure is that it’ll take a lot of soul searching—and help from her friends—to figure out if a second chance at love is worth the potential cost.

She can only hope Clark will still be around when she sorts it (and herself) out…

Shelter at Sugar Beach is an angsty but wholesome and delightful Contemporary Women’s Fiction novel. Readers of all ages and backgrounds will love the empowering message at its heart.

This women’s friendship fiction book will bring you all the feels. If you love women’s fiction with a side of clean romance, this is a great fit for you.

I found this novel rather sad as it portrayed the effects of a disastrous marriage on Tina Archer. Fortunately, Tina has good friends that not only stand by her, and is also blessed in that her son is incredibly mature for a boy of his age. I found it hard to relate to Tina as I have never known bitterness and anger to the level that she experienced it and it takes a special person to break through the barriers she has erected. Clark is exactly the man that she needs.

I loved this book! It's a sweet clean romance that holds your attention from the first page until the last. Tina and Clark's story is full of emotions, and you can feel every one of them. It's a wonderful story about learning to trust again and rebuilding self-esteem. This is a book you don't want to miss. I received a complimentary copy and was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

About the author

I learned to read when I was four or five, listening to my mother read to me when I was lonely after my brother started school. Ever since, I’ve had my head buried in books. I love words – historical plaques, signs, the cereal box – but my first love has always been novels.

A little over ten years ago my husband dared me to write a book instead of always reading them. I didn’t think I’d be able to do it, but to my surprise I love writing. Those early efforts eventually became my first published book – Tempting the Earl (published by Avalon Books in 2010). It has been a thrilling adventure as I learned to navigate the world of publishing.

I believe firmly that everyone deserves a happily ever after. I want my readers to be able to escape from the everyday for a little while and feel upbeat and refreshed when they get to the end of my books.

When not reading or writing, I can be found traipsing around my neighborhood or travelling the world with my favorite companion.
