As Easy As Riding A Bike

Emma Holland is almost finished with the renovation of The Brown Bear Lodge nestled just off the Pacific Coast 101 Highway in picturesque Justin Harbor, Oregon. Being a business owner in a small town isn’t easy, but Emma’s got more than enough determination—not to mention an excellent eye for interior design. There’s only one problem. One of her first guests of the season is someone she hoped she’d never see again. 


As a famous landscape photographer, Connor Pearson has traveled far and wide following his dreams at the cost of losing his first love. Now, back in Justin Harbor, Connor is looking for more than just a place to stay. He’s looking for himself.


As Emma and Connor rediscover their lost friendship and seek to find common ground in the present, Connor feels the tug of his small town roots. Is it possible that a man who’s traveled the world could find his home where his dreams began? Can Emma come to terms with the fact that self-reliance isn’t all it’s cracked up to be? Will their bonds from the past weather the storms of the present?


As Easy as Riding a Bike will introduce you to the salty air and calming waters of Justin Harbor, the first novella in a series featuring small town women business owners.

As Easy As Cherry Pie

Maggie Petten has perfected the perfect pie—at least that’s what everyone who tastes her confections says. But when the size of her shop interferes with the possibility of a dream-job, she’s resigned to turn down the opportunity. 


Fletcher Knight finds it difficult to say no to those who need help. When his father died leaving him in charge of the family’s contracting business, as well as his younger brother, he thought he was ready for the challenge, but his kindness has turned into his weakness. After a few financial hits, he’s not sure he can survive. Still, when he overhears Maggie’s predicament, he immediately volunteers to help before knowing the scope of the job. 


Maggie isn’t in a position to be picky, but is she ready to work with Fletcher? After all, he was her worst (and best) first date experience a year ago, but his silence since then speaks volumes. But as a business woman, she understands the benefits outweigh the discomfort—or so she hopes. 


When the project begins, things turn from awkward to disastrous leaving Maggie and Fletcher to question their working relationship and more. As they work to overcome the difficulties and challenges life and business throws at them, they start to see they may have more in common than they realize. And that together their success may cross from professional to personal. 


Journey back to the small, coastal town of Justin Harbor, Oregon and let the warm, salty air surround you as this couple trips and stumbles into love.
