Serendipity House – Nook

Sylvie was a pleaser. She did as her mother pleased, and she did as her fiancé pleased. Then she did as she pleased. Determined to take back her life, she heads to the hills instead of the altar on the day she’s to wed. Coming across a quaint, country inn with an intriguing name, she impulsively checks into the Pocono Mountains resort. Peopled with an odd assortment of characters, the inn has clearly seen better days; even the regulars have a bit of wear on them. When Alex arrives and is strangely comfortable vacationing among the geriatric set, Sylvie tries to ignore him.

But Alex will not be ignored, pushing her buttons until she admits, if only to herself, that she’s falling for him. Not until she’s hired to manage the inn does she learn he’s not the businessman he pretends to be, but a streetwise PI hired by her ex to find her. Adding insult to injury, he buys the inn and asks for her help in restoring it to its former glory, not an easy task with someone sabotaging their efforts.

Forced to work together, both learn about relationships, expectations, and acceptance among family members as well as strangers who become like family.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I got totally wrapped up in this story and its characters from the very beginning. The author did a great job of developing the reader’s ‘relationship’ with the characters and I found myself actually caring about the outcomes. I felt the author also did a great job with describing the setting, thus making it easy to picture it in my mind.


Very well written, this was more than a romance, more than a mystery. The book centers on the lives of several characters and it was very easy to get caught up in it all. I’m hoping for another book by this author.


This was one of the first books I read on my Kindle. It was terrific. From the very beginning I was caught up in the characters lives and wanted to see where they were going. The story held my interest and I was sorry when the story finally ended.


This was a great romance, with a bit of mystery, suspense and enough strife to make me really feel for the characters without seeming contrived. I look forward to reading more from this author.


Joyce DeBacco has done a wonderful job of dealing with such deep emotional issue as mother-daughter conflicts. She does an excellent job in making you both see and feel with the heroine who feels she has never made her mom happy. I really enjoyed this book even when I was cringing from reading some of the conversations between mothers and daughters. I felt a bit like I was sitting in the corner listening.

About The Author

After reading women’s fiction for many years, I finally decided to take the plunge and write my own stories. One of my books, Serendipity House, was named best indie romance for 2011 by Lynn of Red Adept Reviews. As the mother of four grown daughters, I’m familiar with the problems women face finding love, raising children, and stepping back when necessary. That’s why family dynamics play a large part in all my books. Sibling rivalry, drug abuse among teens, and problems with spouses figure prominently in all my stories. Of course, there’s always a touching love story threaded through the pages. Who doesn’t love a good love story? I can be found most days secluded in my office creating new worlds and people to populate them. When I’m not taxing my brain with plot, structure, and grammar, I like to sew, particularly quilts. When I really want to rest my brain cells, I sprawl out in front of the TV and usually fall asleep. Please visit my website, for more information about my books.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Joyce DeBacco and ENT appreciate it.
