New Release! Tara: Beach Brides ~ by Ginny Baird

Grab your beach hat and a towel and prepare for a brand new series brought to you by twelve New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors…


Beach Brides! Fun in the summer sun!
Twelve heartwarming, sweet novellas linked by a unifying theme.
You’ll want to read each one!





Twelve friends from the online group, Romantic Hearts Book Club, decide to finally meet in person during a destination Caribbean vacation to beautiful Enchanted Island. While of different ages and stages in life, these ladies have two things in common: 1) they are diehard romantics, and 2) they’ve been let down by love. As a wildly silly dare during her last night on the island, each heroine decides to stuff a note in a bottle addressed to her “dream hero” and cast it out to sea!

Four months later, a bottle washes up on a beach near Savannah, Georgia, where billionaire banker, Heath Wellington, is primed to propose to his socialite girlfriend. Pragmatic Heath has never believed much in signs, but the timing of this mysterious missive’s arrival is too uncanny to ignore. Can Heath disregard the compelling “message in a bottle” from a sassy bookstore owner in Beaumont, Maine? Or will her heartfelt plea change the course of his life forever?

Once Upon a Time in Serendipity

So happy to pop in and let you know that Taylor Kincaid's story is now available for pre-order. It will release on June 8th.

Once Upon A Time - Serendipity, Indiana Book Eight


Taylor Kincaid has big plans for her post-college life. Falling in love with the mysterious new shop owner in the small town she grew up in isn't one of them. 


You may have met Taylor (and her twin, Hannah) in Serendipity, Indiana book #2, EMILY'S DREAMS. Now the twins have graduated college and are ready to leave Serendipity forever... The only problem is an absence of jobs in their fields.

They decide to move back home temporarily, living with their parents again, and taking a little sabbatical from all the hard work (and partying) of college.

But Marcus Kincaid has different expectations of his daughters. The free ride is at an end, and they have to get jobs in Serendipity if they expect to live at home.

Hannah accidentally volunteers to work at the Standish Family Christmas Tree Farm with their sister Emily (Kincaid) Standish. But Taylor will float resumes in the little town, and find a job that will pad her bank account, and be easy to leave when the right employment opportunity comes along.

It's a great plan, until she steps into the antiques shop on the town square, and meets its handsome, enigmatic new owner. Now leaving may be more complicated than staying.

Sweet romance, "coincidences" that might be more than that, and a love that survives the unthinkable come together in this new Serendipity, Indiana tale.

My story in the series is KIM

Jon Whitfield was engaged when he “landed” the message in a bottle on a fishing trip, and it disappeared before he could decide whether to respond. Now unattached, he's on a road trip with Kim Rose, whose gratitude in spite of a painful past reminds him of the touching note he wishes he’d kept. 

Pssst--Serendipity readers, Kim was the nurse aid in Emily's Dreams! 



The Beach Brides Reader Group on Facebook will have lots going on all summer. And this Thursday, May 25th, is the Launch Party on Facebook. Click here to join!
