The second release came in 2009 in form of Flowers on Main. The collapse of a relationship with her mentor along with her failure in the previous two plays forces writer Bree O’Brien to abandon Chicago. This comes with abandoning her dreams at the Regional theatre where she had planned to make a name for herself.
She goes back home and opens ‘Flowers on Main’ to challenge herself and bring her fulfilment. This proves difficult in the midst of her estranged mother’s presence and her former lover who has it out for her. Jake Collins is at a fix; with insurmountable reasons to want Bree away from him and an unmatchable fervour for her to stay because he loves her.
This tag of war is hard on Jake because he is unsure if she is here to stay. With no promise of permanence, take a leap and walk with Bree and Jake to discover whether they stand a chance.

The journey of struggle and chances proceeds with Harbour Lights. This presents the world of a newly single dad Kevin O’Brien. The former army medic wants to secure a safe comfortable place for himself and his toddler son. He seeks the support of reliable family and hopes for a bright future.
Shanna Carlyle storms his life unexpectedly posing a risk he possibly could never have foreseen. She sees him as the wounded soul he is and due to past experience with such men, tries to steer clear of him. That is proven impossible by the irresistible charm Kevin and his little son portray.
The walls begin to come down and a sizzling romance is in the offing. However, someone from her past appears threatening the serenity they almost achieved. The new threat makes it a make or break situation. Will they wiggle out of it or fight hard; will they give up or stay strong. Will their almost count or not?

The intrigue of these books continues through the more recent releases like 2011’s Beach Lane.
