Join Mary Kay on Thursday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. to learn how she got started writing and how a story becomes a book. There will be time for a Q&A period and book signing, and random drawings will be held for several of her books.
Something about Sophie - Answering a call that summons her to a stranger's deathbed, a reluctant Sophie Shepard is too late to hear what he was so anxious to tell her. What was so important that a dying man would think of her in his final moments? With the help of Dr. Drew McCarren, Sophie begins to dig into her past, setting off a chain of events that chills the quiet town of Clearfield, Virginia to its roots.With part of her wanting nothing more than to put Clearfield behind her and run back home, Sophie knows she won't rest until she discovers the truth. But growing closer to the residents also means uncovering their dark secrets: about the woman who gave her up for adoption, the mysterious part these strangers played, and the life she never knew she nearly had.
Passing through Midnight - Dr. Dorie Devries needs a place to hide and recover, mentally and physically, after a shocking attack – and the small town of Colby, Kansas looks like the perfect place to be invisible. But she doesn’t stay invisible to farmer Gil Howett and his two sons who live a mile across the way. Dorie wants to be alone, but finds herself drawn time and again to the Howett men. Their care, understanding, and faith in her is exactly the medicine she needs to rediscover her personal strength, and the woman she once was.
The Trouble with Magic - Harriet Wheaton is out of options. Her manor house on Jovette Island is in foreclosure and, in a desperate attempt to save it, she invites Payton Dunsmore to view her home. She feels sure that once he sees how important it is to her, he will stop pressing for the foreclosure and compromise with her. But when Payton arrives, it’s not the house that captures his attention. He’s undeniably drawn to stubborn, passionate Harriet, but still has no intention of saving the manor. Past the point of an amicable resolution, Harriet plays her last card, marooning them on the island and turning to the old Jovette legend that those who arrive as enemies will leave as lovers. But will the legend really work its magic and save her family legacy? And will Harriet be able to hold onto Payton’s heart without knowing if his passion is part of a spell or the real magic of love?
