Barbara Davis is a mystery, history and literary fiction author from New England though she was raised in the south.
After fifteen years of schlepping a briefcase and wearing heels while working as a jewelry industry executive, she decided to follow her dreams. She traded her pinstripes for the dream of becoming a fiction author and has made quite a name for herself.

It has been quite the ride for the New England author ever since she published “The Secrets She Carried,” her debut novel in 2013. Barbara Davis now has several novels and has shown no sign of slowing down.

She is blessed to have met and married her soul mate and best friend who sets the bar high when it comes to writing her romantic fantasy heroes. The two live with Simon, their lovely ginger cat who usually does not care that she is on a deadline.

When she is not working on her novels, she can be found watching football, listening to music, cooking, reading and traveling with her husband.

Davis cannot remember a time when she was not writing as she used to write stories in her head long before she could use a pen and paper. Even then, she was very good at adding all the details she saw all around her into her stories.

Barbara was just in love with words, how they sounded and felt when they were strung together. She would then discover some great authors and knew that it was her destiny to find a career in writing. However, it took quite a while to make her dream come true, as it was not until she was fifty that she published her debut.

Barbara Davis now wears many hats as she not only edits, writes and plots her novels but is also her own social media coordinator, accountant, secretary and publicist. Combine that with taking care of home, family, pet and spouse and she sometimes feels like she is running out of energy and motivation.
She finds balance by planning her routine which involves spending five days of the week working and the weekends reconnecting and recharging with her husband.

Barbara Davis’ novel “The Last of the Moon Girls” is the story of a woman named Lizzy Moon. She had left Moon Girl Farm, a ranch that had been in her family for nine generations and has the honor of having been the home of many gifted healers.

She wanted to distance herself from it all, given that she never liked the whispers about the strange legacy of her family. But then Althea, her beloved grandmother, dies and she needs to go back home and deal with the tragedy.

She does this in the backdrop of withered lavender fields, cruel accusations against her deceased grandmother, and the mysterious unsolved murders of two girls. All Lizzy wants to do is sell the farm and go back to her comfortable life in the city, until she stumbles upon Althea’s old journal.

It is titled “A Book of Remembrances” and according to the notes he left her, it would teach her to embrace the many special gifts she has. Andrew Greyson, one of the very few people that never believed that Althea was guilty, soon contacts her and together they set out to clear her grandmother’s name.
But to do so, Lizzy first needs to accept what she once thought was a strange legacy and follow in the footsteps of her ancestors.

“When Never Comes” by Barbara Davis is the story of Christy-Lynn who as the child of an addict had finally become a teenage runaway. Her life on the road had taught her that no promise was sacred and no address permanent in the search for survival.

But she thinks all that is behind her as she recently got married to Stephen Ludlow, a bestselling crime novelist. She believed she had found her safe haven until he had an accident and his car skidded into the bay killing him. But her husband’s body was not the only one that was recovered from the icy waters of Echo Bay.

Christy Lynn is forced to go on the run once again when the story of a violet eyed mysterious blonde becomes public resulting in a media circus. She cannot bear the fact that her beloved husband had a mistress and a child with her. She also learns that the child had been living in abject poverty with her aging grandmother.

The thought of the little girl being abandoned to be chewed up and ultimately spat out by the foster system just like she was is unbearable. But will she be able to stop running and find in herself love and forgiveness.

Barbara Davis’ “The Keeper of Happy Endings” is an excellent story of a woman well schooled in happy endings. For generations, Soline Roussel’s family has been operating an exclusive bridal salon in Paris, where they work their magic with thread and needle.

According to local legend, any bride that wore a Roussel gown would have a lifetime of joy guarantee. But business was not so great during World War II both for Soline and her family. Her world is left in ruins and her faith in love shaken and she does not know if she would ever be the same again.
Her heart filled with pain, she decides to leave town. She boxes up all her possessions and stows them away together with her broken dreams and memories with the intention of banishing them to the past.

Several decades later, Rory Grant, an aspiring gallery owner who is dealing with her own tragic loss, rents out what had been Soline’s house. In the house, she finds a box with a vintage wedding dress and letters that she believes belong to the previous owner.

When she returns the box to Soline, they form an unlikely friendship and eerie parallels between Soline’s and Rory’s lives begin to emerge. It is soon clear that they were fated to meet and that Rory may be the key to opening the door to both women finally getting to heal by righting a decades old wrong.

    I’ve just read The Secrets She Carried. Loved it—and am hoping for a sequel (hinted toward the end). More of Leslie and Jay, the introduction of a still-living great uncle!

    I love your writing. I spent my summers in Charleston as a child. Hearing Monks Corner and Goose Creek was so surreal. I am in love with all of the characters and would love sequels .
