First line of the book.

Lloyd Carter cried out, sending a startled white-tailed doe wheeling off through the dark woods.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

On a bitter cold January night in 1965, death came calling at an isolated little cabin on Wake-Robin Ridge. Now, nearly 50 years later, librarian Sarah Gray has quit her job and moved into the same cabin, hoping the peace and quiet of her woodland retreat will allow her to concentrate on writing her first novel. Instead she finds herself distracted by her only neighbor, the enigmatic and reclusive MacKenzie Cole, who lives on top of the mountain with his Irish wolfhound as his sole companion.

As their tentative friendship grows, Sarah learns the truth about the heartbreaking secret causing Mac to hide from the world. But before the two can sort out their feelings for each other, they find themselves plunged into a night of terror neither could have anticipated. Now they must unravel the horrifying events of a murder committed decades earlier. In doing so, they discover that the only thing stronger than a hatred that will not die is a heart willing to sacrifice everything for another.

A story of evil trumped by the power of love and redemption, Wake-Robin Ridge will transport you to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and introduce you to characters you won’t soon forget.

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Genuine, likeable, compassionate.

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).

Anyone who likes their romance with a bit extra – a touch of the supernatural, two stories woven together and a beautiful setting.

Your favourite line/scene

In her deepest heart, down in the part Lloyd hadn’t belittled and demeaned and beaten to death over time, Ruthie had cherished the memory of that trip, and had clung to the idea that someday she would find a way to live in those hills. Providence had put the means right in her hands. When she finished packing up the Impala, she stashed her suitcase full of money in the trunk, and headed north, towards the Blue Ridge Mountains. She never even noticed the dirty gray car that pulled away from the curb two blocks behind her.

  1. Thank you so much for featuring (and READING, yay!) Wake-Robin Ridge today, Cathy. I’m tickled to death! It was my very first book, and I still love every character in the story, though they have grown and changed, and become so much more in the last three years. Hope you enjoy it!! 🙂

      • Goosebumps are a favorite of mine. 😀 I just finished the third book in this series, Harbinger, and I think it has a lot of them, too. After all, a book about the Appalachian/Celtic legend of the Black Dog as a harbinger of death simply must have a fairly high Goosebump Factor, right? 😀

      • Can’t wait to see what you think, Cathy. I’m starting work on my 3rd Riverbend novel next week, but the last nine months have had me (mentally) back in those mountains I love so much, and I hope you’ll enjoy every minute of the time YOU spend there, too. THANKS for reading, and sharing. 🙂

      • They are unbelievably beautiful. The Appalachian chain is the oldest mountain chain on the planet, and that accounts for the way the rounded hills roll on and on. Between the ferns, wake-robins, and waterfalls, and the smoky blue mist that hangs over the cliffs and peaks, it takes your breath away. There’s a sense of something primeval about it all, and there’s nowhere else I’ve ever been that feels quite the same way.

    • Thank you, Judith. I “cut my teeth” reading Daphne du Maurier, and I think that’s where I get my love of descriptive writing. I clearly remember reading Rebecca at age 12, and I could smell the salt of the sea at the foot of the cliff, and see the towering rhododendrons along the drive to Manderley. Everything about that book was magical, and I’ve never forgotten it. I’m so glad my love of the North Carolina mountains shows in my own books! (Hopefully, my love of the rivers of central Florida shows in my Riverbend books, too. I want readers to feel the canoe rocking beneath them as they glide past the egrets . . . and alligators . . . along the shore.) 🙂

  2. Cathy, I hope you’ll continue to enjoy my books for as long as I can keep writing them. I intend to keep doing so until I fall face down on the keyboard! 😀 ❤
