Description: You don't know me yet, but in a few hours that's going to change. You see, I'm inviting you to my home and my town of Cedar Cove, because I want you to meet my family, friends and neighbors. Come and hear their stories -- maybe even their secrets!
I have to admit that my own secrets are pretty open. My marriage failed some years ago, and I have a rather . . . difficult relationship with my daughter, Justine. Then there's my mother, Charlotte, who has plenty of opinions, and is always willing to share them.
Here's an example: I'm a family court judge, and she likes to drop in on my courtroom. Recently I was hearing a divorce petition. In Charlotte's view, young Cecelia and Ian Randall hadn't tried hard enough to make their marriage work -- and I agreed. So I rendered my judgment: Divorce Denied.
Well, you wouldn't believe the reaction! Thanks to an article by Jack Griffin, the editor of our local paper (and a man I wouldn't mind seeing more of!), everyone's talking.
But don't let me tell you about it. Read and discover for yourself what all the commotion is about...
