From Kelly:

The most interesting thing about me lately is I’m a COVID-19 survivor. None of that asymptomatic stuff for me, I went all in and came out the other side a happier person. Some of One Hundred Glances was written while convalescing. Oh, who am I kidding? I wrote when I could, but mostly I slept. This is one of my favorite books in the Aspen Cove series because it’s about overcoming obstacles and making the best of a bad situation.

Funnily enough, during this pandemic, we’re doing out best in a bad situation. It’s important to find the humor in unpleasant things. So … in no particular order here are my top five bits pandemic of humor.

  1. Ask a 6-year-old if he understands why there is no school, and he’ll tell you it’s because they are out of toilet paper.
  2. Coronavirus has turned us all into dogs. We roam the house all day looking for food. We’re told “no” if we get too close to strangers and we get really excited about car rides.
  3. If you keep a glass of wine in each hand, you can’t accidentally touch your face.
  4. My mom always told me I wouldn’t accomplish anything by laying in the bed all day, but look at me now! I’m saving the world!
  5. I swear my fridge just said: “what the heck do you want now?”

I hope you’re staying healthy and happy. I find my joy in writing and reading books that make me laugh, cry, giggle, scream and sigh. I hope One Hundred Glances does that for you.

Live to Love

About the Book:

Book Title: One Hundred Glances

Welcome back to Aspen Cove, where seeing is believing

Artist Sosie Grant has always loved what Aspen Cove had to offer. It was a place to let her muse run wild. But when a bout with Lyme disease leaves her unable to paint, she comes back to Aspen Cove to say goodbye to the only life she’s ever known.  Abandoned by her agent in the small town, she is forced to rely on the kindness of strangers; specifically, Baxter Black the reluctant resident asked to take her in.

Construction worker Baxter Black isn’t good at caring for people. Nurturing role models were absent in his life since his own mother abandoned him and his twin at birth. With the town’s recent growth, business is booming, and taking care of Sosie Grant is the last thing he needs. But when he sees her struggling to get her life on track, he finds himself drawn to the beautiful woman with an artist’s eye and a heart of gold.

Is Baxter what Sosie needs, or will he be another disappointment along the way? Can Sosie nurture Baxter’s abandoned heart and prove that love is possible?
