I write contemporary sweet romances and cozy mysteries. I live in a small town in Washington State, near Seattle. I love to write about small coastal towns, although those that I write about are figments of my imagination. 

I used to be a tax accountant, but realized that writing romantic stories about people falling in love or making my amateur sleuths discover secrets about their suspects was way more fun than depreciating assets. 

There's never a dull moment in my household, with a tech geek husband, two small boys that keep me on my toes, two cranky cats, and a mischievous house rabbit. Tidbits of my everyday life have a tendency to find their way into my fiction, so watch out! :)

When Gretchen Roberts graduated from college, she planned a brief stay in her hometown of Candle Beach. Ten years later, she’s still working for her parents and wondering how her life got so off track.

With a referral from her best friend Maggie, she's a shoo-in for the job.

But there's one little snag... 

Parker Gray grew up knowing he’d work for his parents’ real estate firm in nearby Haven Shores. What he didn’t expect was that he'd be in constant competition with his older brother. He’s got to get out of there before he loses his mind, and the sales position at Oceanview Estates seems like a perfect way of reaching that goal. 

Gretchen and Parker meet by chance and are instantly attracted to each other -- until they find out they're both after the same job. Who will win the coveted position? And when the dust settles, will they still want each other?
