The talented author grew up and was raised in the state of Washington. After she graduated from high school, Catherine decided to relocate to the southern California area with the intention of auditioning and becoming a movie star. However, she also had to make ends meet somehow. She was waiting tables and grew bored with it, so she decided to go back to school.

Catherine went back to school and graduated, becoming a registered nurse. She spent most of her time working in emergency rooms in different parts of southern California. She says that the material that working that career gave her was worth the back pain and the twelve-hour shifts. Today she writes on a full-time basis.

She was married but has since gotten divorced and is very happily so. She resides in San Diego, California, where she is living her best life.

Catherine says that from the first time she read a romance novel, she had fallen in love with the genre. She read them constantly throughout her time in high school and she vowed that one day in the future she would become a published author too. She was also thankful that eventually word processors were developed, and spell-check came along with them.

The author says that she doesn’t take herself too seriously. As much as she can, she tries to laugh and make those around her laugh too. When possible, she can be found traveling all over the world. She has a large bucket list and does her best to try and check off the items every few months.

This is the story of four women, their friendship, having second chances, and finding love without expecting it. Main character Lori Cumberland works as a divorce attorney and is largely a cynical person. She knows that life is grand, but when it comes to divorce, well, that’s a hundred grand.

She has already gotten married and had that end up in divorce. She fell for her guy early on and fell hard and is not interested in repeating that same experience again. She is happy to just focus on the marriages about to be dissolved by her clients, many of whom are rich and famous. She decides to join some of the more recent individuals that have gotten divorced on a cruise. On the cruise, her goal is to get some sun, have some fun, and enjoy time spent with new friends. Little does she know she might find something else to occupy her attention.

Then there’s Reed Barlow. For him, becoming a private investigator was simple. He knows all about the law and how to not break it while doing his job. He lives his life by the fact that he should do his best to have no emotion and no involvement. That is, until he meets Lori.

Reed has a great smile and a confident attitude that could be described as cocky. It takes Lori off guard and makes her feel less defensive, which is what he wants. But what could have been a singular flirtation might just be a plot by Reed. As his investigation grows more dangerous, he could be putting Lori in danger.

Reed has just one chance for Lori to give him another shot. But if he’s honest with her, his cover might be blown. Will he put her best interests first, realizing he cares for her? Or will she be collateral damage? Read this book to find out!

Trina Petrov had a marriage by contract that was just supposed to be temporary. The last thing that she expected was for tragedy to hit and leave her one of the richest women in the entire world as a result. She is totally in shock but needs some way to recover. She decides to adjust to her new normal by going to Italy to relax for some time.

She promises herself that she’s not going to get involved with any men while she is there and won’t fall for anyone. The rules allow for her falling for someone on her way back home, however.

Then there’s Wade Thomas. The big name in country music is hanging out at a hotel bar, trying to keep to himself. Usually, people fall all over him when they recognize him, so when Trina gives him the cold shoulder, it actually feels nice.

When things start heating up between Wade and Trina, things seem optimistic. Then Trina finds out that her husband’s death may not have been what it first appeared to be. When she gets into trouble, Wade doesn’t want her to get hurt. Could getting involved put them both in danger, and can he save her? Will this make her fall for him? Read Half Empty to find out!
