NY Times, USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

When actress Elyse McKenna fell in love with Lord John Waldegrave, she was prepared to keep their liaison secret. What she wasn’t ready for was how her newfound love would rock her relationship with her dearest friend, Doctor Kai Murray.

With the 1814 London Frost Fair in full swing, Elyse and her troupe at the Ice House Theatre find themselves at the heart of the excitement on the frozen Thames. But when an exotic ship captain, whose vessel is trapped in the ice, turns her attention to Kai, everything Elyse thought she knew about her feelings for her old friend gets flipped upside down.

While the Ice House Theatre’s production of A Midwinter Night’s Dream thrills the London crowd, Elyse’s life begins to take on a distinctly Shakespearean turn.
Elyse must find a way to discover the truth about the captain, Kai, John, and her own feelings if she hopes to escape the Thames with her heart intact.

Ice and Embers is a retelling of the classic Snow Queen fairy tale set in Regency London.

“The Golden Bowl Series by Maeve Christopher is a GOLDEN GEM! Do not miss the opportunity to read a beautifully, well written, inspirational, clean story.” -Tracey Q.

Amazon Bestselling Author

“Almighty” Buck Wynn of Brooke, Lewis & Wynn, with offices in New York and London, premiere consultants to the restaurant and food service industry, prides himself on his problem-solving skills that have taken him to the pinnacle of success. But Buck has a problem he can’t solve.

His relationship with Annie Brewster, owner of The Golden Bowl restaurant, is in jeopardy. More importantly, he realizes he’s in love with her, a new experience for the man who has never loved anything but money. It occurs to him that falling in love is an answer to the first and only prayer he took from the golden bowl months ago: God is doing a new thing.

Buck needs to change if he is to win the woman he loves. But can he reveal his sordid truth to Annie?

Annie is preoccupied with family visiting for the summer and her growing business and charities. Her precocious six-year-old niece invites Buck, Annie, and others to join her Supernatural Diet Club, which she explains is a simple, nourishing way of life. Annie’s friend and benefactor, Cat Clemente, a rock star philanthropist with the gift of prophecy, is appointed to lead the group.

Well aware this journey could be fraught with trouble, Buck hesitantly agrees. Winning Annie and impressing the billionaire philanthropist who can make or break Buck’s consulting business are his goals. But Buck soon realizes he has no idea how to resolve a potentially scandalous situation by himself. Sarcastically, he turns to God, and Almighty Buck quickly learns God’s ways are not his.

The Golden Bowl . . .

Nutritionist Annie Brewster knows one small prayer can change everything. As a teenager, she revealed her dream to open a restaurant to her grandmother. In minutes Grammy painted her prayer for The Golden Bowl on the scenic coast of Marberry, Maine. Years later Annie discovered that property and opened her business to feed people—body, soul, and spirit. A large gold bowl on the restaurant’s front porch gives the establishment its name and invites patrons to leave a prayer and take a prayer. When they do: lives change.

“What makes this book particularly valuable is its vivid depiction of the abhorrent consequences of legalized segregation. What gives it heart is the window it opens to the personal journeys of mother and daughter. An important, riveting history lesson…” -Kirkus Reviews

In 1967, when Jo Ivester was ten years old, her father transplanted his young family from a suburb of Boston to a small town in the heart of the Mississippi cotton fields, where he became the medical director of a clinic that served the poor population for miles around. But ultimately it was not Ivester’s father but her mother—a stay-at-home mother of four who became a high school English teacher when the family moved to the South—who made the most enduring mark on the town.

In The Outskirts of Hope, Ivester uses journals left by her mother, as well as writings of her own, to paint a vivid, moving, and inspiring portrait of her family’s experiences living and working in an all-black town during the height of the civil rights movement.

A teenage time traveler accidentally takes her secret crush back in time. Awkward.

Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this –she’s accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward.

Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother, and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness?

When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.

Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but hardened mother of seven Fionnuala Flood plans on serving hers up frozen. Or so she thinks.

The bells are ringing out in Derry, Northern Ireland, as the dirt-poor Floods and the rich and entitled Riddells prepare for the pairing in matrimony of their families and a bridging of the gap between the two sniping communities. But some are not best pleased, and it might be more a case of For Whom The Bell Tolls.

What is the price to be paid for a mother’s love? For daughter Dymphna and son Lorcan, dangerously high. Fionnuala is already furious Dymphna has put her arch nemesis, Ursula Barnett, on the wedding list. Then beloved son Lorcan, fresh out of prison, announces he’s emigrating to the USA. He’ll get there. Unless Fionnuala gets her way.

In Wisconsin, Ursula and husband Jed will find a trip to Derry difficult, as Jed’s gambling has them teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. The last chance to save their floundering beef jerky business will be to appear on Attack of the Killer Investors! But Fionnuala has ripped up their invitation, in any event. When they hear shocking news of Dymphna’s death, getting the investment from the TV show is essential.

Throw in a rabble of geriatric religious fanatics, poisonous ham hocks, an X-rated wedding cake, a gown from Hell, mix with rivers of drink, intolerance, jealousy and shame, and you have Best Served Frozen, a rip-roaring tale jam-packed with dark humor.
