Boots and Bedlam

‘Tis the season for chaos.

Wedding bells will soon be ringing in the Lowcountry. All Sam Sweeney wants is to marry her man on Christmas Eve surrounded by family and friends. But emerging complications, some humorous and some not so humorous, threaten to converge and derail the best-laid plans during the busy stretch between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Amidst the chaos—dealing with real estate, planning a wedding, running a seafood market, honoring traditions, and contending with teenagers—even the weather rears its head when the weatherman forecasts a white Christmas. Never has family support been more needed, but will it be enough to restore order and save the day?

Escape to the Lowcountry this Christmas where romance, intrigue, and holiday merrymaking await you.

Boots and Bedlam"This is one busy family and they may not always see eye to eye but the love between them all is so evident. I love the constant twists and turns in these books and the cliffhanger endings always keep me looking forward to the next book!"

Boots and Bedlam"A quick, entertaining, and eventful read. I just adore this series and the Sweeney sisters. I don't think I will ever tire of them."
D J Sakata
Boots and Bedlam"There is plenty of bedlam in this story as the author is not afraid to deal with real world situations and paints an accurate picture of consequences from bad choices. There is a beautiful multilevel love story that plays out on these pages as well."

If you enjoyed the Sweeney Sisters series, you're gonna love Palmetto Island!

Birdie Fuller’s new year is off to a bad start. Her husband has mysteriously disappeared, leaving Birdie to cope with their unmarried daughter’s unplanned pregnancy. Birdie and Hannah disagree about the baby. Birdie urges her daughter to consider abortion, but Hannah is determined to see the pregnancy to term. When Hannah returns for her last semester in college, Birdie must face her demons, the problems in her marriage that drove her husband to clean out their bank accounts and run off with another woman.

While struggling to hide her pregnancy from her roommates and ex-boyfriend, Hannah interviews for jobs that will take her and her baby far away from her mother. After graduation, with months to kill before the start of her new job, she returns to Palmetto Island for the summer to await the birth of her baby. Tension mounts between Hannah and Birdie when they move from their waterfront home to a two-bedroom apartment above a bakery. Can mother and daughter mend their relationship? Or will they be lost to each other forever?

While this one may have been shorter than a traditional novel, it packed a lot of punch and set the stage in so many ways for the rest of the series.⁣
I love that her books are filled with so many realistic characters and situations. It makes the reader feel even closer to everything that unfolds. Also, she doesn't shy away from taboo topics like alcoholism, unplanned / single parent pregnancy, abortion, bullying, infidelity, etc. The best part is that she writes characters that you cannot help but fight for and these topics are discussed with tact and heart which can be difficult to pull off.
