Happy New Life

There is nothing cozier than winters in Grandberry Falls.

Interior decorator and divorced mom, Liz Day, is living her dream by opening up The Mole Hole Interiors. Life couldn't be better with best friend Jenna Greenlee and boyfriend, Cole Michaels by her side. Until she discovers a deep secret between Jenna and Cole that will change the lives in Grandberry Falls.

Jenna vows to make the new year, the beginning of a NEW LIFE. . .HAPPY NEW LIFE. 

Over the past year Tonya Kappes has become a dear Facebook friend. She has an infectious personality and I can always count on her posts and blogs to put a smile on my face. She has a passion for her craft that shines through in everything she writes.

Just a year ago her first short story was published in the Something Spooky This Way Comes anthology, where we were introduced to the characters that would make up her first novel Carpe Bead 'Em. I was there when subsequent novels The Ladybug Jinx and were released, reading them as fast as I could download them.

With Happy New Life, her 4th novel of the year and 2nd in the charming Grandberry Falls series, I can honestly say her work just gets better and better. This is my favorite so far, which is really saying something as I have adored everyone of her completely refreshing stores. I love how this one centers on 2 people brought together by a sweet dog, Tramp. There's a little romance, a little mystery, but above all else it's a heartwarming look at the power of love, friendship, and forgiveness. And set during the holiday season in a picturesque little town is just the icing on the cake.

What a great review. This shows how social networking develops friendships that help us all to let people know about our books. Sounds like a lovely read!
