Happy Release Day for Hanging On!

This one has been a long time coming and I'm particularly excited to share it with you.

Hanging On is the second in my Sisters in a Small Town series that began with Coming Home, almost two years ago. I didn't know I was going to write a sequel, let alone plan for at least a third book, but I had too many requests for a sequel to ignore.

Especially from my own family, so Hanging On is dedicated to my aunts as well as the lady cousins from Cheryl's. Thanks for all your support!

So here it is!! Hanging On, aka Maggie's story!

Sisters are there when you need them.

It’s been eight months since Maggie’s husband died. She’s wrapped up her weekly chats with his ghost, and focusing on her five daughters. She has her sisters offering support, potato chips, and wine. As much as she loved Mike, she can’t go on grieving forever because her family needs her.

Maggie thinks she’s fine.

Then comes the week where everything turns upside down—her pregnant daughter leaves her husband and moves home. Another one comes home from university with a much-older boyfriend in tow. Sister Dory arrives, looking for trouble. And an altercation with a customer at FoodMart brings a visit from the police and some really big changes.

Perfect timing for someone from Maggie’s past to show up. Ben has moved back into town and hopes to rekindle his friendship with Maggie—or something more? Can Maggie handle moving on?

Maggie may not be fine but she’s hanging on as best she can.

And for those of you who like to start at the beginning, Coming Home is only 99 cents today!!

Cat and Brenna have never gotten along.

After her cheating husband destroys her career, Brenna has nowhere to go but home. Home is her four sisters in the tiny town, with no Starbucks and well-meaning townsfolk who know her every move. Every mistake.

And Brenna is making more than a few mistakes. From falling asleep in the local bar, to her morning tryst with a much younger man, Brenna’s giving the town a lot to talk about.

Her sister Cat wants nothing to do with her. Content with living in the family home with the ghost of their mother, Cat’s given the town enough to talk about with her string of failed marriages leading to Brenna’s ex-boyfriend.

Sibling rivalries, old grudges, and at least one knock-out, drag-down kitchen fight ensues as Brenna and Cat are forced under the same roof.

Loving your sisters is easy. Liking them is the hard part.
