McKenzie Shaw, mayor of Haven Point Idaho, is drowning in responsibility. It’s a small town and she’s learned that in thus small town everyone expected her to be their problem solver. Whether it was disintegrating bridges or unwelcome visitors it was her problem.

As far as MacKenzie is concerned the answer to the problems in Haven Point can all be answered with the help of the person who created them, Ben Kilpatrick.

Five years ago Ben dealt a life-altering blow to Haven Point when he closed the boat factory and put half the town out of work. Now he’s back to see if the town can support a new factory.
Haven Point is at the bottom of his list, but Mackenzie will make sure her town comes out on top!

Hott Review:

What I liked: Redemption Bay is a great read. It’s not fun and light but it is all-encompassing and heartfelt​. I really enjoyed Ben most, McKenzie was just a bit perfect and perky for me to connect with, but I really enjoyed his personality and loved every moment we spent together!
What I didn’t like: For the longest time I thought Redemption Bay was just a bit boring. Then, all of a sudden, it drew my heart in and reminded me why I love Haven Point.

Author Bio:

I’m not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.

Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged.

After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist.

Through it all — through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor — I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love.

I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try — their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 30 books later, I’ve come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the “that’s-it!” feeling I get when a story is flowing.

I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains.

Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can’t imagine my life any other way.

I love to hear from readers. You can reach me at: author's website twitter facebook
