Moving into Fall brings expectations and refreshes memories of changing leaves, chrysanthemums, cooler weather, family gatherings, and certain foods—what folks call “comfort” foods. I’ll include a couple of recipes later in this newsletter.

Have you ever thrown a coin into a fountain or wishing well and made a wish? If so, did your wish come true? When I was writing this blog, I discovered there are dozens of sites online that sell special wishing well coins (most of them plastic). You can even rent a wishing well for a party. 

Sometimes our wishes come true, but with unexpected complications. That’s what happened to Serena Winter in WINTER’S WISH, now on sale for only 99¢ through Thanksgiving Day.


Here’s the description for WINTER’S WISH:

None of the eligible men in the town of Hopeful, Colorado appeals to Serena Winter. Working at the mercantile owned by her aunt and uncle, she meets everyone in town. Her aunt warns her against falling for a prospector as they always leave town in the spring. One full moon, Serena quietly leaves her aunt’s home and drops a coin into the town wishing well. Her wish was she would attract an interesting man. She should have been more careful about wording her wish.

Brent Adams has filed on his claim and brought gold ore with him to the assay office in Hopeful. He fears taking it to an assayer closer to his mine will attract claim jumpers and robbers. He’s immediately charmed by Serena. Now he has a new fear—incurring her anger when she learns the secrets he’s withholding.

When Serena is lost in freezing weather, Brent frantically searches for her. If he can find her in time, can they reconcile their differences and find lasting love?

WINTER’S WISH is a sweet western historical romance available from Amazon in e-boo and print, and is free in Kindle Unlimited. 


Thank you for encouraging me and for reading my books. Your friendship means the world to me. As Lester Holt says at the end of the evening news, "Stay safe and be kind to each other.” Kindness is powerful!
