His homecoming is bittersweet…for both of them
Café owner Maddie Strong is finally ready to take her burgeoning cupcake business to the next level. With the help of handsome businessman Alex Perkins, her future’s all mapped out. Until her first love comes home.
At seventeen, Maddie adored Nate Barzonni with her whole heart and soul. But when he asked her to elope, she’d said no—she couldn’t let him throw away his dream of becoming a doctor. Then he vanished from her life for eleven years. Now the cardiac surgeon has returned to Indian Lake asking for a second chance, and Maddie has to choose between her new life…and the man she never stopped loving.
THE TROUBLE WITH LOVING FILMS
If you don’t know or are just coming to this blog tour, my book, HEART’S DESIRE has been made into a Hallmark Channel movie. The title has been changed to THE SWEETEST HEART and Harlequin Heartwarming will be re-issuing the book as THE SWEETEST HEART with a new cover featuring the actors, Julie Gonzalo and Chris McNally.
If you watch WHEN CALLS THE HEART on The Hallmark Channel, you’ll recognize Andrea Brooks. She plays the nurse to Paul Greene’s character. These are lovely ladies whom it was my privilege to meet. If all goes well, we will be meeting again. I have to write a book for Andrea, but I’ve had her character, Chloe in my head for years!! She’s an actress. Oh, to have that heart broken. Sorry, Andrea. But I told her that on set. She was good with it.
This is my leading man, Chris McNally. He was lovely, and brought his mother to the set. She was a delight and we had fun chatting. Seriously, I always thought I was tall, until I met the men in my movie. Victor Zinc who plays Alex—we didn’t get a photo because he was in makeup too long and my plane was calling to me. I had to leave. But hey, I’ll write him a Heartwarming book. And we’ll meet again. Gee. Does that sound like a storyline?
So, now that you’ve met my darling cast kids, you can see the “trouble” with films. You make friends and go through hard days—it was a downpour of rain in Vancouver and cold! That’s why I have my fake fur on. But then we have to say goodbye. And I hate that. Thank God for Twitter where I see Tammy and Andrea a lot. But we all have busy lives.
And I have to write them books!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
