Tuckaway Bay  Books  by Madelaide James That One Summer, Book 1 He’s the one who got away. She’s the one who couldn’t commit. Lia Langston left Tuckaway Bay twenty years ago, leaving behind an attractive job offer and the young man she’d fallen in love with that summer. The breakup hurt them both, but she was expected back home in Chicago where a new job was waiting, one her father had pulled strings to help her land. While Lia wasn’t thrilled with the idea of jumping from beach life into Corporate America, as a new college graduate, she knew the family expectations. She meanders through life—marriage, a child, divorce, career—yet there is one constant. She never misses a summer trip back to the beach with her college girlfriends. By the time beach week rolls around each year, she is more than ready to shake off her troubles, unwind, and unplug with the girls. And every summer, Lia wonders if she might run into Zach Allen again. She doesn’t. Then Zach steps back into her life. Suddenly


Holly Hill Inn

Welcome to Holly Hill Inn. A stay at this bed & breakfast has been known to heal hearts and mend relationships of lovers and families, who may have gotten a bit lost along the way.

Set in the quaint New England town of Dickens, both the town and inn bustle with excitement and anticipation for the Christmas holiday. Dickens offers an abundance of heartfelt wishes, perhaps a much needed miracle or two, and—quite possibly—a touch of magic! Families reunite, new friends are made, and old flames take a second chance at happiness. All while celebrating this most joyful time of the year.

My Holly Hill Inn stories are part of the Christmas in Dickens series authored by several authors.

Miracle at Holly Hill Inn was part of the original multi-author holiday anthology. Watch for its rerelease along with a prequel this summer. Look for my latest Holly Hill Inn story coming during Christmastime in 2021. Stay tuned!
