Independence Island Novella Series

Welcome to the Independence Islands page, where you can stay up to date with fun giveaways, background information and lots more about each of the books in this fun contemporary series -which includes my first published contemporary novella, Restoring Fairhaven (available December 8 - preorder now!)

This month's release: Secret Beach Boyfriend by Kari Trumbo 

We're talking event planning as we enjoy a 'party' kick off for Secret Beach Boyfriend, and 

thought it would be fun to vote for your favorite table setting, for an event such as Christmas,

Thanksgiving, a birthday celebration and more. This is our list, of which we had to include 6 items:

· Something silver or gold (just the color, doesn’t have to be real)

· Something Crystal (doesn’t have to be real)

· Something unique to you

· Something that represents your writing

· Something floral

· A gift

· Something that offers light

· Something borrowed

· Something food related


My table setting picture is below, with a classy gold Christmas theme, complete with (my Regency historical novels) Mr Darcy-inspired Pemberley tea-tray, unique homemade candles (made with my husband when we were courting!) and grandmother-inherited floral-decorated teapot and teacups. Together with a crystal candleholder (a gift), I think I've covered most of the list!

Like what you see? Check out the other authors table settings, and then go to the Celebrate Lit page to vote and go in the draw to win a $20 Amazon gift card, the Christmas on Breakers audiobook, and an ebook of the first three books in the series. How fantastic is that?

RESTORING FAIRHAVEN  ~ Coming December 8 2020

Samantha Green of Greener Gardens gets more than she bargained for when she is employed to restore the overgrown gardens of the estate owned by a reclusive writer, whose romances about unrequited love have become bestsellers and movies, despite never having a happy ending. New to this role, Sam is determined to succeed, despite facing challenges with the business and her family.

Max Fairhaven just wants to be left alone. But the green-thumbed intruder to his island hideaway is stubborn, and her quick wits and sunny disposition

soon get under his skin. Between banter and garden renovation she gradually brings some much needed life to this widower, as he begins to engage with the real world.

Can happily-ever-afters be found in real life as well as fiction?


REGAINING MERCY  ~ Coming June 29, 2021

A mother ready to do anything for her son. A man determined to win the woman he loves.

Going on Love at First Glance had seemed like such a good idea. She didn’t care about finding Mr. Right. Mindy Murray chose the reality TV show for more mercenary reasons.  A mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do when it comes to feeding her son.

When Mindy returns to Elnora, the girl from the “wrong side of the island” just wants a chance to rebuild her reputation. Too bad the folks at church don’t practice what the preacher preaches.

Enter Dermott Reilly. The interim boss at Greener Gardens has always had a soft spot for Mindy and her son, but with his new responsibilities and an important garden contest, he finds it difficult to prove himself to her. A tropical storm and a missing child prove that sometimes grace appears in the most unusual ways.
