"The Wishing Season" is a "...sparkling contemporary tale of competing ambitions, wounded personalities, and powerful attraction." Publisher's Weekly


Spirited PJ McKinley has the touch when it comes to food. Her dream of opening her own restaurant is just one building short of reality. So when a Chapel Springs resident offers her beloved ancestral home to the applicant with the best plan for the house, PJ believes it’s a contest she was meant to win.
Contractor Cole Evans is confident, professional, and swoon-worthy—but this former foster kid knows his life could have turned out very differently. When Cole discovers the contest, he believes his home for foster kids in transition has found its saving grace. All he has to do is convince the owner that an out-of-towner with a not-for-profit enterprise is good for the community.
But when the eccentric philanthropist sees PJ and Cole’s proposals, she makes an unexpected decision: the pair will share the house for a year to show what their ideas are made of. Now, with Cole and the foster kids upstairs and PJ and the restaurant below, day-to-day life has turned into out-and-out competition—with some seriously flirtatious hallway encounters on the side. Turns out in this competition, it’s not just the house on the line, it’s their hearts.

Colleen and I are both setting our next series in Maine (Our towns are just down the road apiece, in fact!) So we took a research trip together. Her good-natured husband Dave carted us all over coastal Maine.

Maine is gorgeous with thick evergreen forests, rocky coastlines, and calm harbors, dotted with lobster boats and colorful lobster buoys. Some of what we saw was expected and some was not! So here's my list of 10 random facts I learned this week:

1. Lobstering is alive and well
2. There are almost 3,000 islands off Maine's coast.
3. Blueberry barrens are often found alongside the road
4. Puffins inhabit some of Maine's islands
5. Maine's coast consists of many peninsulas with calm harbors. Crashing waves are a rare sight.
6. Only the older Mainers seem to have a Maine accent.
7. The muffled boing of a navigation buoy is my new favorite sound.
8. Weathered shaker shingle is the siding of choice.
9. Cranberry bogs are pollinated with honey bees.
10. Gifford's maple walnut ice cream is to die for.

We've been talking about Diann's upcoming Hallmark movie for almost a year, and the time is drawing near! Her movie "For Better or For Worse" premieres July 19, at 9:00. We hope you'll be watching!

Moreover, we hope you'll join us in making it a huge celebration! For years we girls said that if one of us gets a movie deal, we're going to fly to Hollywood and attend the premiere together. It was a big dream, and praise God, he made it happen for our sweet Di!

She was so excited to know she had a Hallmark movie coming out, and even though she won't be with us, we're going to celebrate. She asked us to have a party and make the night fun so her family wouldn't be sad, but we're going one further. We're having our very own premiere, complete with limos, photographers, and red carpet!

If you live in the Fort Wayne (Indiana) area, we hope you can come! If not, please considering grabbing a few friends and watching the premiere together. Have a simple get-together or go big with a wedding theme and door prizes like we are.

Either way, we hope you'll share about your evening on Facebook and Twitter to let the world know about Di's movie.

Go to the Event Page for more details!
