Welcome to Trinity Lakes, a warm and welcoming small town in east Washington, filled with charm, family, and friends, where fresh starts, second chances, and romance abound. You'll meet swoony bachelors, cowboys, and adventurers, sweet and sassy ladies, and your new best friends. This series of standalone Christian romances will warm your heart, inspire your faith, and bring a smile to your soul.

In 2019, I was fortunate to visit Washington state and see such Hallmark-worthy towns as Chelan, Winthrop, Leavenworth and Walla Walla. (Check out my pictures below) 

A discussion with Aussie author friend Narelle Atkins ultimately led to a multi-author contemporary romance series set in Washington state in the fictional town of Trinity Lakes, written by a group of mostly Australian authors.

My first book in the series is Love Somebody Like You, and involves an Aussie nurse heroine and a handsome cowboy, and the challenges of family, finances and letting go of the past to move forward. Find out more about the books by clicking on the titles below. Please note, all books are available to preorder on wide retailers, before they're released into Kindle Unlimited.

So if you're a fan of small towns and romance, please come visit Trinity Lakes.

For Lexi Franklin, returning to Trinity Lakes feels a little like running home with her tail between her legs.

But as they spend time together, questions soon rise about their future, and whether faith can truly win over fears. Will Jackson be able to save his ranch, and his hopes and heart, before Lexi returns to Australia?

When Ellie Reilly returns from a dream overseas trip, a too-long hug from her best friend Jasper Cohen clues her in that his feelings might be more than what she suspected. He's unsure about pushing their friendship further, and doubly uncertain when her European friend, Sebastian, seeks her out in Trinity Lakes.

Uncertainty is something Ellie knows all too well. Since returning from her vacation, Ellie feels like she doesn't fit at her family's ranch or in small town life.

When she is asked to take on responsibility for reopening Trinity Lakes' historical museum - a dream she's always wanted - she can't help but wonder if settling for life in the familiar is all that God has for her, or can she dare trust Him for more?

A friends-to-more, small town contemporary Christian romance. Visit Trinity Lakes and meet the fun and quirky characters who value family, faith, and happily-ever-after.

Wanted: someone hardworking, honest, humble, with a sense of humor, who appreciates the simple things in life. Who loves God, loves family, and loves animals. Genuine seekers only.
Dr. Jess Martin--Doc Martin to her local community--might be used to solving the veterinary problems of rural south east Washington, but she can't solve the problems of her lonely heart. When a dating app specializing in rural connections comes her way she figures she's got nothing left to lose. Especially when she's already lost the only guy who had touched her heart, who has made it clear his future lies in Silicon Valley and not in Trinity Lakes. It's time to let go of the past, once and for all.
Cooper Reilly never pictured himself as finding his future or contentment on a ranch. His heart has always hankered for the finer things of life. But when a corporate reshuffle sees him kicked to the kerb, he finds himself right back where he started. And right back to trying to convince a certain pretty vet to give him a second chance. But she's not playing, convinced she's found her Dream Match already. But there's something she doesn't know...
Can these two friends look past previous mistakes and find a future? And what does a hunky fireman have to say about a perfect Dream Match?
