Look at what Lime Berry Winery’s winemaker Joe Carroll created after he and his wife read “A Sudden Gift of Fate”! Lime Berry is on the East Side of Keuka Lake in New York’s Finger Lakes.

It’s my way of thanking you all for your support. Happy holidays!

As part of National Novel Writing Month, I decided to write the third and final installment of the Maeve Kenny series. The story picks up a few years after A Sudden Gift of Fate ends. It was great to spend another month at Keuka Lake (in my imagination, that is—drat!) writing about the further adventures of Fergal, Brídgeen, Maeve & Andy.
     I just finished the first draft. My process is to walk away from the book for a few months now and work on other editing before I go back to it. There are some great new plot lines and more than a couple twists. Can’t wait to get this ready for my readers.

Stay tuned for a special online shopping deal for my readers, plus news about the third book in the Maeve Kenny series!!

Be sure to check out Book Look in the latest edition of Life in the Finger Lakes magazine. A Sudden Gift of Fate was reviewed by Laurel C. Wemett who calls it an “engaging novel of two likable couples and how they handle the challenges in their lives.”
     If you haven’t read this wonderful magazine before, be sure to give it a look. It truly is a celebration of Finger Lakes life, from the breathtaking scenery to the work of fine artisans, from the fascinating lakeside places to the bounty of their shores, fine produce to exquisite wines.

I am delighted to announce that my third novel, 3/17, is now available for $20 at my eStore (an Amazon.com storefront). Within a few days it will be available at Amazon.com and will be at other online book stores such as Barnes & Noble and Powell’s or available to order at independent book stores within six weeks. I’ll keep you posted!

What readers are saying:
"This endearing foursome, that so many readers of the first book fell in love with, face new challenges with Irish wit and a generally upbeat outlook on life. They're a group of friends that anyone would want to hang out with."
"After finishing it, I kept thinking of the characters and wondered how they were doing. I had to remind myself they weren't real and had to let them go..."
"I couldn't put it down."
"Pure dead brilliant!"

The story

Irish couple Fergal and Brídgeen Griffin get an intriguing wedding gift: the chance to manage a Finger Lakes winery. When they move to Keuka Lake from Queens, see the rundown winery and meet its surly winemaker, they realize it will be quite a challenge getting from grapevine to bottle.
Meanwhile their friends Maeve and Andy face a challenge of their own, separation as he pursues experimental therapy for his paraplegia.
As the two couples face the challenges ahead, will they be able to keep hope alive?
