This week Roxanne Snopek‘s latest release BLACKBERRY COVE ∫is in the spotlightThe book is one of her A Sunset Bay Novels. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Roxanne's book:

“Some stories are just destined to rip your heart out and then heal it back up whole again from the very start. Blackberry Cove is such a story.” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for BLACKBERRY COVE:

Amid the wildly beautiful beaches of Sunset Bay, Oregon, lies Sanctuary Ranch, a refuge for strays, both human and animal. A place where love and healing go hand-in-hand . . .

When journalist Jonathan Byers leaves L.A. with his career in tatters, he heads to Sanctuary Ranch, determined to settle some of his personal affairs by putting his aging father in a seniors’ home. But his father stubbornly refuses to leave his secluded retreat—and has even rallied Sanctuary Ranch’s beautiful gardener to his cause. Something about sexy, mysterious Abby Warren piques the rugged reporter’s investigative instincts—and his interest—luring Jonathan to stay a little longer . . .

Having found her own healing at Sanctuary Ranch, Abby knows Jonathan’s hard-headedness hides a wound that needs mending. Believing a time-out in nature will help father and son see eye-to-eye, she welcomes Jonathan into the only haven she has ever known. But Abby never expects to find herself so drawn to him—or that he will uncover devastating secrets she’d hoped to keep long buried. Will their deepening connection be enough to steer them through the darkness ahead, and toward a bright future for everyone?

Roxanne's stories are great, and this one sounds very emotional. I'm curious about the heroine's secrets because if anyone can uncover what's been hidden it's a reporter!  What do you think?
