The other day, I was typing away when the house phone rang. Normally, I ignore the house phone. They’re usually just annoying robo spam calls.
But not this time!
It was ACFW, calling with the news that On A Coastal Breeze was a finalist for a 2021 Carol Award! I was sworn to secrecy until the news was announced the next night. So classy of ACFW…to make the time and effort for a personal phone call of congratulations.
It’s such an honor to be a finalist. On a Coastal Breeze was entered in a very competitive genre (Contemporary)…lots of stiff competition. Stay tuned for the final results in a few months. Regardless, I’m thankful my book is on the short list!
On a Coastal Breeze
For Madison Grayson, life is good. Newly licensed as a marriage and family therapist, she can’t wait to start her practice. Despite the unfortunate shortage of eligible bachelors on the island—they’re all too young, too old, or too weird—Maddie feels like she’s finally found her sweet spot. Not even one panic attack in the last year. Not one.
And then Ricky O’Shea drops in. Literally. Floating down from the pure blue sky, the one man in the world she hoped never to see again—the one who’d been her archnemesis from kindergarten through her senior dance—parachutes into town, landing on Boon Dock, canopy draping behind him like a superhero. Ricky O’Shea. Now Pastor Rick, the new minister on Three Sisters Island.
Time to panic.
With wit and a bit of whimsy, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Three Sisters Island where family, forgiveness, and a second chance at love await.
Congratulations, Suzanne! Well deserved. Hoping for first place for you!
