Izzy Delaney is sharp-tongued and quick-witted, with an unapologetic style of her very own. She is certain that she is destined for great things; if only she could hold down a job for more than a couple of weeks. Whether it’s her blue hair or her inability to conform to polite convention, Izzy can’t seem to find her niche.
Jay Archer is moody and introspective, and most definitely not a member of the Izzy Delaney fan club. In fact, Izzy can’t remember hearing him utter a complete sentence to her in… well, forever. He prefers to fade into the background and observe life from a safe distance.
Despite living in the same apartment and sharing a best friend, these polar opposites barely tolerate one another.
Until a chance encounter on stage changes everything.
A song written but never meant to be heard, a video accidentally gone viral, and an unthinkable tragedy.
How can a bond so fragile be expected to stand up against the domino effect of The Duet?

The Long Growing Season
What was it about Travis Tucker that set my teeth on edge and made my heartbeat trip over itself? It had been fifteen years since he left me standing on my porch in that absurd pink prom dress; peering down the street, anxiously waiting for his car, which would never appear. Surely I was over that humiliation and school-girl heart break. Surely I had moved on. I was married to his best friend, Jack, after all…
In the town of Fenton Hills, Connecticut, Jack and Sophia Lennox are close to royalty. He’s the clear choice for the next mayor, and she’s the girl next door. He’s charming and handsome, and she’s kind and graceful. The only thing that rivals their passion for their hometown is their devotion to each other.
But don’t believe everything you read.
When an old school friend suddenly returns to town, the cracks in the Lennox foundation begin to appear. In fact, Jack is behaving very oddly and Sophia is coming completely unglued.
Will Fenton Hills’s perfect couple be able to hold it together long enough to get through the election? And what is it about this one man’s presence that has everybody unraveling?

Olivia is a world class daydreamer who has never backed away from a challenge. Having grown up under the shadow of back to back tragedies in her hometown of Bear Cove, she has somehow emerged as the bright spot in a town that has all but given up. Eternally optimistic, she has big plans to save her beloved lake town - and save it in grand fashion.
As summer makes one final curtain call over Bear Cove, and the locals warily eye the ever increasing empty storefronts with a collective sigh of defeat, three men arrive in town and turn Olivia’s world upside down.
There’s Levi, the lost wandering soul, convinced he is not worthy of happiness; Ace, on the run from some very determined men who want him silenced forever; and Sam, the ornery, reluctant shop owner who pushes all her buttons.
Three troubled men. One struggling town. Even Olivia’s vast imagination never prepared her for this.
