“The best “Escapist Travel” collection of novellas I can remember ever reading! 5 Stars!” -Vince

Escape … with four gorgeously romantic and evocative novels from the Escape to Italy series in one heartwarming collection.


Considered one of the most romantic locations in the world, lovers flock in their droves to Venice, the beautiful Italian city set on a lagoon of interlocking canals.

Lucy is returning with a heavy heart to her favorite place in the world. Exactly a year before beneath snowy skies, she and her boyfriend locked their love in a quiet corner of San Marco on a small romantic wrought-iron bridge over the canal. But this winter in Venice things couldn’t be more different…


The Italian city of Verona has always been a draw for lovers. The setting of the famous Romeo and Juliet love story, tourists flock not only to the city’s picturesque Italian beauty, but to try to capture some of the story’s romantic essence.

Over one glorious Autumn weekend, four visitors converge at a charming trattoria run by an elderly Italian couple, who have seen people from all walks of life pass through their doors, each with different expectations of Verona. Can the city work some of its magic on their latest customers?


Maia Connolly never expected to find herself widowed at forty-five. Her beloved husband died unexpectedly while restoring their nineteenth century Italian farmhouse on a secluded hillside in Sorrento.

Since his death, money is tight which is why Maia decides to open the farmhouse to tourists as summer accommodation. Uncertain of her business capabilities and even more of her hospitality skills, she is thrown in at the deep end when her first bookings appear and her new guests all arrive over the same week.


Three very different women arrive on the stunning island of Sicily for a cookery class promising incredible food, breathtaking scenery and a taste of Italian culture. It is hosted every year in the spring by Chef Isabella, in her little stone villa in the old town of Taormina.

Olivia is a travel writer in Sicily to write a feature on the growing popularity of Isabella’s famed cookery class. She is intrigued to find out what makes previous guests rave about the short break. Is it the food, the location and the incredible scenery?

Or is there an alchemy about Chef Isabella, and her instinctive way of knowing her students require more than cultural or food knowledge, but a means to balm their souls…

“I love this book. It is well written, the characters are vibrant and interesting and it’s full of action and humor.” -Mel’s Book Review Blog

Little Italy, 1946 – Sophia Mancini would have enjoyed the grand opening celebration of her family’s private detective agency if the volatile chef at Vincenzo’s Ristorante had actually survived the meal. But before Sophia’s chilled spoon hit the spumoni, someone plunged a knife into Vincenzo’s back and the word on everyone’s lips went from mangia to murder.

Sophia soon finds herself trailing crime boss Frankie Vidoni, chatting with his mouthy mistress Maria, and dodging henchman Mooch DiMuccio. She’s suspicious of Vincenzo’s widow, Stella, and his assistant chef, Eugene, because they don’t appear the least bit dismayed by Vincenzo’s passing. There is no conversation Sophia won’t eavesdrop on, no question she won’t ask, and no danger she won’t face to find the killer.

“My daughter can’t put it down. Can’t wait for more to come out!” -oks.oks

Hi! My name is Janie Ray, and I’m eleven years old. When I first got this diary from my mom, I didn’t think I’d have all that much to write about – except for the usual stuff about my little brother RJ (who ALWAYS messes up my things, and never gets in trouble!) and my best friend Sheila.

But then really strange things started happening. Like this medallion I found when I was seven turned out to have an inscription on it – in a secret language I made up with Sheila just THIS YEAR! Let’s just say my life isn’t so boring anymore. And that’s an understatement.

Join me as I explore the hidden mysteries of the medallion, while figuring out how to deal with Marcia the Snob, my little brother RJ, and even my mom – who always looks nice and doesn’t understand how hard things can be when you’re eleven!!!

The Impossible Medallion and The Day My Mom Got Grounded:

Eleven year old Janie Ray just got a new diary from her mom. At first, she writes all about the private jokes she shares with her best friend Sheila, and the grief she gets from her little brother RJ.

But then, one morning, she realizes that the mysterious inscription on the old medallion she found when she was seven is written in her secret language!

Join Janie as she explores the hidden mysteries of the medallion, while figuring out how to deal with Marcia the Snob, RJ, and even her mother – who always looks nice and doesn’t understand how hard things can be when you’re eleven.

A Star is Born:

Kellie Allen is the most unpopular girl in Janie Ray’s fifth grade class. She doesn’t have any friends, and she brings sardine sandwiches for lunch! Janie can’t believe her rotten luck when she gets stuck with Kellie as her science project partner. But she soon realizes that Kellie isn’t as weird as she seems. And she has the best singing voice Janie has ever heard!

Can Janie get the other kids to see Kellie for who she really is? And will she be able to use the medallion to help Kellie change her luck in school?

A Letter to my Fifth Grade Self:

Things are going pretty well for Janie. Between hanging out with Sheila, Kellie and Alexis and trying to get her homework done, she barely has time to think about the medallion. And even MTS seems to be minding her own business.

But all that changes one day, when Janie gets a mysterious note from the future.

Baking with Frenemies!:

Traveling through time is strange enough, but now something even stranger has happened – MTS, otherwise known as Marcia the Snob, wants to be Janie’s friend! Or does she?

With the fifth grade baking contest coming up, and Kellie’s Starbright Showdown just around the corner, Janie barely has time to write in her diary. And as if all that weren’t enough, Janie and Sheila realize it’s time to find Grandpa Charlie’s key and unlock the mysteries it seeks to protect.

Join Janie as she tries to figure out how to deal with Marcia, while discovering what it truly means to be Bearer of the Medallion.


Becoming Zara

Price: $0.99 Save $2.00

Hi, I’m Zara…warrior princess. I don’t usually tell that last bit to strangers, but I say it in my head all the time. It’s one of the many mantras that have helped me to get to where I am today. And believe me when I say that I’ve come a long way.

Besides, if you’re a woman and you happen to have ever struggled with issues of self-esteem, we’re probably gonna be fast friends anyway, so I won’t hold anything (much) back.

Oh, and Zara wasn’t the name I was born with—but you’ll find out more about that in the book.

I don’t know about you, but my own struggle with my weight has held me back a bit in life. And my self-esteem took a real nose dive after my fiancé dumped me—via text, no less. (I know, right? Jerk!…but I don’t usually dwell on things in the past, so let’s just move right along from that, shall we?)

So, I’m still a work-in-progress for sure, but I’m really starting to figure it all out—how to be more of who I’m meant to be every day—including the bumps, the lumps, and my bruised ego along the way.

Oh and I love my sisterhood (more about that later) – the women who join me in believing that we are all capable of being strong, amazing, warrior princesses—just the way we are right now.

God’s perfect plan is sometimes so hard to determine.

Gwendolyn, Cecelia, and the youngest, Bonnie, make a pact never to break their father’s heart like their big sister did. Then their determination is sorely tried when suitors show up, and he gets so pigheaded with his rules.

Will Henry survive his daughters coming of age? Will they endure and keep their promises to each other?

From one man asking to court her—who Daddy sends packing— Gwen goes to three! How can she ever decide? Cecelia knows exactly who she wants, but she’s still a year away from Daddy’s acceptable courting age. What if her beau doesn’t know or won’t wait? And Bonnie hates being the baby and wants to be grown-up more than just about anything…except her man. She is for sure and for certain in love.

In his life, Henry Buckmeyer has never been so beside himself. His little girls are so young, just babies, too young. He hates the whole idea of men coming to take them away and is inclined to shoot every one of them, but praise God for a level-headed, loving wife and step-mother! She helps keep him sane amidst the female chaos. Packed with fun, romance, deception, action, heartbreak and tears, this delightful Christian novel keeps the twists and turns coming.

Will the Buckmeyer home ever be settled and peaceful again? Will any of his daughters find true love…a man he’ll approve and to whom he can give his blessing?

Someone is trying to kill Lynne Tremaine. After her father sentences two members of The Briscoe Boys gang to death, Judge Tremaine feels he has no choice but to send Lynne to Denver City along the Oregon Trail to live with her Uncle George…against her will. For Lynne, the only thing worse than being sent away to the wild west is making the journey with the handsome, arrogant, wicked man her uncle has hired to escort her. Especially when the anger she feels toward him begins to turn to something hotter.

Cade Lawson is determined to prove himself to his employer, George Tremaine, after letting him down months earlier. But what he thought would be his second chance may, in fact, be a harsh punishment for his past mistakes. Lynne is headstrong, fiery, and determined to show him she is fearless. She is also beautiful and tempting, and when Cade sees just how afraid she really is underneath her brave act, he may be in danger of losing his heart to her forever. When her would-be killer attacks, it’s all he can do to keep Lynne safe.

He swore to protect her, but who will protect him from her?
