Five Years Gone
The most brazen terrorist attack in history. A country bent on revenge. A love affair cut short. A heart that never truly heals.
I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn’t know then was that I’d never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone.
That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I’m stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister’s wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again.
The world is riveted by the capture of the terrorist mastermind, brought down by U.S. Special Forces in a daring raid. Now I am trapped between hoping I’ll hear from John and fearing what’ll become of my new life with Eric if I do.
The Butler Vermont Series
Welcome to Vermont and the Butler Series, featuring the Abbott family, proprietors of the Green Mountain Country Store. This series was inspired by a story Marie saw on the NBC News about the real-life Vermont Country Store and the Orton family that owns it. I was fascinated by the story of a modern-day family running an old-fashioned country store in the mountains of Vermont. After a memorable weekend in Vermont in which I visited both of the stores locations—and managed to spend too much money at both stops—I was hooked on the idea. Since then, the Abbott/Stillman/Coleman clan has stolen the hearts of readers, and Fred the Moose has earned himself a cult following.
The Gansett Island Series
Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she’s knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy’s Resort Hotel by Gansett’s “favorite son,” Mac McCarthy. He’s back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be “maid” for love.
Share in the life of the McCarthy family as well as their many island friends in this much-loved sexy romance series.
The Treading Water Series
The series that started Marie’s career as an author in 2004-2005, The Treading Water series contains her first three books: Treading Water, Marking Time and Starting Over as well as Coming Home, a book her readers asked her to write to finish a story begun in Marking Time, and the series finale, Finding Forever.
