From the Ruins (Winds of Change Book 1)
Since becoming a widow, these questions have plagued Sandra Tolbrook to the point where she feels completely lost without her soul mate. After an ankle injury forces her to sell the family home, her three children convince her to move into Summerset Resort, a retirement village for over-50’s. With a tennis court, swimming pool and cinema, the resort had sounded so perfect when she signed on the dotted line. But now, she’s not so sure …
Damien Kensington is Summerset Resort’s most eligible bachelor, according to some of the other retirees nearby. It doesn’t sit well with him, given the past he’s not proud of, the past he tries to keep hidden – but good-naturedly, he takes the title in his stride. It’s not until he meets the new widow two streets away that he realises something has been missing from his life.
When Sandra’s children suggest she step out of her comfort zone and start living again, a road trip to North Queensland seems to be the perfect solution. But surely she can’t do that … at her age! Or with Summerset Resort’s most eligible bachelor! What would people say?! A pastor’s widow travelling with another man – imagine the scandal!
But the road trip may be just what Sandra and Damien need. Along with exploring beautiful parts of Australia, they discover a wonderful friendship, a deeper faith, and an abandoned house which might just be the answer to Sandra’s prayers.

Stand by Me: A clean and faith-filled opposites attract small town Christmas romance.
He’s big city, she’s small town. He’s a fast-paced businessman, she’s a slowed-down artist. He loves the night life, she loves the quiet life. He’s wealthy, she… well, isn’t. Can such opposites make love work?
Successful Austin CEO Isaiah Williams rarely gives himself the luxury of time off. He thrives on the buzz of making deals and signing multi-million dollar contracts. But spending the holidays in a small Oregon town with his former business partner will let him arrange to buy his friend’s share of their business. And maybe also give him a chance to spend more time with the pretty artist he met and fell for at his friend’s wedding.
Watercolor artist and cafe manager Cas Salter loves to paint the ever-changing ocean. She also loves her friends, her church, and the way her mental health problems have improved since she came back to live in Chapel Cove. And okay, maybe she does love Isaiah, just a little bit. His confident charm is hard to resist, but she can’t give up the life she’s worked hard to create or the faith that means everything to her to join him in the fast lane. Life in the slow lane suits her fine.
When Isaiah is thrown into relying on God as his world crumbles, will Cas choose to stand by him? And when she reveals the reason she can’t risk moving back to the city, can he choose to stand by her?
