Olivia Davenport has finally gotten her life back together. She's left her painful past behind, started over in a new town, and become Harmony Harbor's most sought-after event planner. But her past catches up to her when Olivia learns that she's now guardian of her ex's young daughter. With her world spinning, Olivia must reconcile her old life with her new one. And she doesn't have time for her new next door neighbor, no matter how handsome he is.

Olivia may act like she's got everything under control, but Dr. Finn Gallagher knows a person in over her head when he sees one. He'd really like to be the shoulder she leans on, but Olivia makes it clear she doesn't want his help. Since he's returned to town, his waiting room has been full of single women feigning illness. Yet the one woman he's interested in is avoiding him. But with a little help from some matchmaking widows and a precocious little girl, Finn might just win Olivia over.

BONUS: The eBook edition includes a complete novel from BookShots Flames, THE MCCULLAGH INN IN MAINE by Jen McLaughlin!


FBL : Do you write detailed character profiles before writing, or do you find the characters come to life as you write? 
Because I write series, my characters have typically shown up in previous books before they get their own story, so I know them pretty well and they feel real to me. Though they still manage to surprise me when I’m writing their stories.  

FBL : What do you like better: when you’ve just started writing a book or when you’ve just finished one, and why?
It’s tough to choose. I love at the very beginning of a book when I’m brainstorming the story. It’s a bright and shiny idea then without any of the hard work and angst of getting the story on the page. I also love the sense of accomplishment I feel at the moment I write the end.

FBL : Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
There may be some small things that come from real life experiences and interests, but the major events are purely fictional. 

FBL : What was the hardest thing to cut from your manuscript?
I didn’t actually cut anything, but I did completely revise the first four chapters . . . three times. 

FBL : If Primrose Lane had a theme song, what would it be?  
I actually have a theme song for every book. For Primrose Lane, it’s “Stand by You” by Rachel Platten.
I was curious of Dana's story from the beginning. As her story unravels, it is heartbreaking and she tries to put her past behind her. Funny how life is, it will follow you and have you face your worst memories. Olivia and Finn's story is about coming to turns with what life has dealt you, love, loss and recovery. Our heroine Dana, is actually a high society women named Olivia. She faced a mother's worst nightmare, then learned of her husband's other family. She came to Harmony Harbor to start again and a new life, and new town, raising her husband's child from another woman wasn't in her plan. Finn, returns to Harmony Harbor injured and trying to make sense of his future. The two cross paths over and over again, the banter is great and the chemistry is sizzling. Can each of them learn to trust and embrace the chance for love and HEA?
There is also the secondary storyline that continues from the first book in the series, Colleen and Simon are still adding humor to the storyline. I couldn't put the book down and look forward to the next book in this series.
