Community Gardens Series, my debut into fiction, are mainstream women’s stories with a touch of suspense and a hint of romance, set in the beautiful Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Centered around a lovely Garden center, trouble abounds, only to be resolved with the help of friends and community. These relationship driven stories are certain to warm your heart. So pull out the lemonade, sit in the garden and enjoy!
