Volume 2 – Stay at Celebration House

celebrationhouse_book2Beth Kozera promised her best friend, Carrie Hansen, she would stay and manage Celebration House in Carrie’s absence. How she regrets that promise!
Because Beth has no idea how to manage an event venue. Since when did brides become so demanding and grooms so lecherous? Plus, Beth can’t boil water, let alone supervise a sit-down dinner for 200 guests every weekend.
Thank goodness for Joshua. Or, at least, she thinks. But when Beth offers his mom a job managing the kitchen, Josh shows his patriarchal colors. So much for tall, dark and haughty.
Could Beth’s life get more complicated? Apparently so. Her former fiance, Charles Mercer IV, visits from Seattle and wants Beth to let him back into her life. Charlie is convinced if he can restart his romance with her, he can somehow mend his life.
All Beth wants to do is keep her promise to Carrie, but can every promise be kept?


Volume 3 – Return to Celebration House

celebrationhouse_book3Melanie Hansen loved her younger sister, Carrie. But when Carrie moved to Lexington, Missouri, to restore an antebellum house, Melanie was pretty sure Baby Sister had lost her mind.
Then Melanie’s worst fear comes true: Carrie dies. When a letter arrives asking Melanie to return to Celebration House – Carrie’s house – Melanie has no choice but to leave all that she knows in Seattle and travel to Missouri.
All Melanie wants to do is find a buyer and get the hell back to Seattle. But selling the property isn’t easy with all of the restrictions her sister and the grumpy local historian, Zachary Oakes, have put on the sale of the house. Plus, local residents are convinced the place is haunted. The few-and-far-between offers made would destroy all of Carrie’s restorations. Melanie cannot allow that.
Homesick and drowning in grief, Melanie finds Zachary’s shoulders just right for leaning on. But when tragedy strikes, Melanie must ask: is Celebration House her new home?
