I am originally from Pittsburgh, but I now reside in Florida, with my two cats. My first attempt at writing was when I wrote a tribute to my Black Lab after he passed away. That short story appeared in a veterinarian's magazine and now appears in a paperback collection of short stories, "Forever Families" edited by Shelagh Watkins. After earning a couple of college degrees, I started writing for fun, and as a hobby. I completed my first novel "Perfect" in 2007. I entered the book in a contest and it received an honorable mention. In addition to that, I received a lot of great feedback on that first attempt, so I decided to try another. That led to my second book "Choices" and then came "The Bushes are Red" and "The Full Nelson"--a trilogy that is turning into a series, because readers didn't want me to stop there. Another book, in that series ("Consequences") was released in April, 2013. In December, 2011, "Kisses from the Heart" was published--all new characters. "Maddie's Garden" (2011) is another new story with all fresh new characters. "Second Chances" came out in 2012, and "Going Home" came out later that same year. There are many more to come. I love writing and will continue to write every day. Please email me! I answer all emails as soon as I can. firstname.lastname@example.org.

I enjoyed this book... it was a bit sappy at times but I enjoyed every minute of it. Very warm.

3 stars overall (for me, 3 stars means I liked the book and was satisfied), BUT 5 stars for a tender, heart-felt read and very satisfying happy ending. If you like a happy ending, this book is for you! Sweet, fun & quick read with a lot of tender moments. I wish there had been more "falling in love" scenes, but the reader definitely falls in love with the characters. I wasn't happy with the occasional internal dialog ending in (shut up), but I know what this was meant to do. It worked in a way, but it was so abrupt and rather out of the book's style that it was too jarring. Really great & heartfelt story. Really enjoyed it! Looking forward to reading more books by Carole McKee!
