Nicole Ellis is a published author known for writing cozy mysteries and romance stories.

She resides in the state of Washington and enjoys writing stories set in small towns on the coast. She was a tax accountant but began to realize that penning romances or writing a mystery was more fun. Nicole switched over to writing novels and has not looked back!0

Nicole is married and lives with her husband and their two children as well as their pet cats. She has always been a lover of animals and knew from an early age that part of her life would involve working with animals. Nicole had a passion for animals at a young age, growing up frequently riding horses and enjoying the family pets that always seemed to be around. She never had a fear of animals and would be the one always volunteering to hold a big snake or to go up to a cheetah and get a better look.

Nicole would pursue her love of animals by studying animal training along with some of the top trainers in the world. Along the way, she picked up what it’s like to work with different animals. From exotic animals like large cats and bears to regular house animals like cats and dogs, she became familiar with them all. Nicole eventually realized that when it comes to being a trainer, her personal mission was best expressed by training other people so that they could get a deeper bond going with their own pets through understanding and positive training as she believes that happier pets are achieved by having owners that are happy. Nicole hopes that these efforts will result in fewer pets being surrendered or turned loose.

Nicole Ellis knows about the love and the joy that a rescue pet can bring to you! She adopted her dog Maggie from a shelter. Maggie is now part of the team as the official ambassador for animal training. Maggie has even taken a star turn and has been cast in a variety of commercials and has even worked in movies. She is a smart and well-trained dog that has mastered over 100 behaviors. She regularly has performed on television, as part of fundraisers for charity, and for patients at hospitals.

Dahlia is the main character in this book, and she is now charged with handling the estate of her aunt now that she has sadly passed away. It’s bittersweet to be the one taking on this task.

When she graduated college as a young woman, she returned to Candle Beach for what she thought would be a brief period before moving on to something far more fabulous and different.

She’s employed by her parents and wakes up one day and wonders how she ended up straying so far from her original plan.

Determined to get her life back on track, Gretchen resolves to make a new plan and follow through. Part of this involves getting a sales job. The only thing is that a man named Parker Gray might get in the way of this dream job. He’s handsome, but the job is far more appealing in Gretchen’s eyes.

Gretchen’s got her eye on the prize, but so does this new competitor. Can Gretchen land the job? Will the two get together? Read this book to find out what happens and check out the rest of the great stories in the Candle Beach series!
