Known for her warm yet sensual writing style and intriguing plots, Rochelle does a lovely job of capturing the geniality of the south in her new Cavanaugh Island series.

Reeling from her husband’s untimely death, 38-year-old Deborah Robinson is in need of a fresh start. Deciding to return to her grandmother’s ancestral home on Cavanaugh Island, Deborah packs up her home, boxes up her bookstore, and heads to Sanctuary Cove with her teenage children in tow. Full of charm and happier memories, the Cove promises the new start Deborah so desperately needs.

Also at a turning point in his life, Asa Monroe has been on a journey in search of faith and meaning since losing his family. As a member of Doctors Without Borders, he is constantly on the road, traveling from one place to the next. But when Asa catches a glimpse of the beauty with the radiant smile, he suspects he may have found a reason to stay in Sanctuary Cove a while longer.

As friendship turns to romance, Asa and Deborah aren’t prepared for the next challenge that life brings their way.
