Come home to Frazier Bay


Tessa Callaghan is on a mission to save her home town. The bay has just been voted one of the dullest small towns in the country and she’s determined to do her bit to make it great again. She just hasn’t counted on brother-in-law Gabe McLeod coming back on to the scene – nor her growing feelings for the man who abandoned her when she needed him most.

An SOS call from the small town’s mayor has brought Gabe back home for the shortest time possible but it also brings him face-to-face with the secret he’s kept all these years. That he is in love with Tessa – and that she is the one woman he can never have. But when life in the Bay takes some unexpected turns, it becomes clear that he’s not going anywhere… and neither are his feelings for Tessa.
Set in a small New Zealand town, The Return of Gabe McLeod is a cosy romance that will make you laugh – and warm your heart.

A photo album. A mystery. And a past filled with sadness.

Matthew McLeod never expected to find love again. With his ‘perfect’ marriage over, he’s focused on his growing McLeod’s chain of cafes. He certainly never expected to find his past smacking him in the face in remote Frazier Bay but it does that when he realises that his old friend’s former wife is now living in the area he left as soon as he could.

Librarian Anna Cameron moved to Frazier Bay to start life again after a personal tragedy.  And she has immediately fallen for the small town. With new friends such as vet, Tessa, and a job she loves—a job that sees her trying to solve the provenance of a mysterious photo album—life is starting to look better than it has in years.  And her growing friendship with gorgeous Matthew McLeod and is lovable niece Lucy is helping in so many ways.

But can she find happiness again? And can she risk loss again, especially with a man she suspects is not being completely honest with her?

An emotional and heartwarming story about overcoming loss and finding love again when you least expect it.
