When Bluestar’s hometown celebrity unexpectedly returns to the island, there’s a heartbreaking scandal following her…
Country singer Emma Bell is finally making headlines—just not the right ones. Before she has time to heal her broken heart, her assistance is desperately needed. Bluestar’s Concert on the Beach Summer Spectacular is in trouble, and her soon-to-be sister-in-law’s job is on the line.
Financial investor turned carpenter, Noah Sullivan, has retired from his high-stress job due to health issues. He’s moved to Bluestar Island for a quiet, healthy life, but when Emma blows into town, his days are anything but serene.
Everyone in the small town counting on them, Noah and Emma must work past their conflicts to keep a promise to someone special to both of them. Will the summer’s sun soothe their tension and the sea breeze lull them into a peaceful surrender of their hearts?
Includes a recipe for Emma’s Heavenly Angel Food Cake!

And yet another text message. She pulled her phone out of her pocket to turn it off. Before she could power it down, her gaze caught the name of her brother as the contact.
Hi, Auntie Em. It’s Nikki. Guess what?
Emma smiled at seeing a message from her seven-year-old niece. Nikki obviously had borrowed her father’s phone.
It felt so good to be distracted from the implosion of her life. Her fingers moved rapidly over the keyboard.
Dash got loose again. Dad chased him around the yard.
Emma remembered the little goat that was born at her brother’s farm a year or so ago. He was certainly a character.
Did your dad catch him?
We bribed Dash with cookies.
Emma smiled even though her heart was broken. For just a moment, she focused all of her attention on Nikki.
When are U coming to visit?
Emma paused. She didn’t know what to tell her niece. The last time she’d been home was at Christmastime for her mother’s wedding to fire chief, Walter Campbell. It had been such a beautiful wedding.
And now it was already June. How had so much time passed so quickly?
She stared at her niece’s words and then she typed… Soon.
Love U 2!
“Everything okay?” Meghan was lounged back, checking the messages on her own phone.
Emma slipped her phone back into her jean pocket. “Yep. The pet goat got lose again.”
