Welcome to Orchard Hill

Welcome to Orchard Hill…

Where love grows…


The town of Orchard HIll is fictitious, but if it were on a map, it would be located between Lansing and Kalamazoo in my beloved home state of Michigan.  With is shorelines and beaches, vineyards and orchards, forests and farmland, hills, lakes and marshes, Michigan is breathtakingly beautiful.  What makes it special is the same thing that makes every state in this incredible country of ours special:  the people who came before us, the people who've held on through thick and thin, and those who've moved on to new horizons while holding home in their hearts...

Orchard Hill has more than 20, 000 residents.  College students account for nearly half of that number and live near campus across the river.  The other side of town belongs to people with deep roots and long memories.  This is Madeline Sullivan's side...

When Madeline's fiancé died as a result of a tragic motorcycle accident, she believed she would lead a quiet life surrounded by her friends and family in her hometown.  But then she went in search of the man who received Aaron's heart.  Finding Riley Merrick was a sonic boom.  He certainly made her heart beat faster!

Just past the City Limit sign the land turns hilly.  The first hill is the old train depot.  The Old Stone Inn sits on the second hill.


Innkeeper Summer Matthews, Madeline's best friend, didn't grow up in Orchard Hill.  In this close-knit community, Summer is known as the keeper of secrets.  The biggest secret she keeps is her own, for Summer isn't her real name.  Nothing can remain a secret forever, especially when world-renowned journalist Kyle Merrick comes to Orchard Hill for his brother's wedding...

Beyond the Old Stone Inn the orchards begin.

The first orchard is home to Madeline's older brothers:  Marsh, Reed and Noah.  These three brawny bachelors have never been afraid to strut their stuff.  Until one baby boy left on their doorstep brings them to their knees and sends each prospective father scrambling to find a woman from his past.  Noah confronts Lacey Andrews, Reed searches for Delilah Prescott and Marsh hires a private investigator to locate Julia Donohue, who seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet...

Across the river near the college is Star's Coffee Shop.


Owner of the coffee house, single mother Star Blanchard discovers that there are a few bad apples in Orchard Hill.  When her brother is accused of a crime he didn't commit, she must turn to a man who left town twelve years ago...

And there's Star's older sister, and a new nurse practitioner, and a woman whisked to town for safekeeping by a man who doesn't believe he deserves to keep anyone safe...

As you can see, this series will be a long-running one.  I leave you for now with a heartfelt welcome to my books, stories for everyone who believes or longs to believe in happy endings.  We have to believe.  Good things are going to happen.  They really are.


Welcome to my world.
