In a super fun twist of fate and coincidence, my good friend and fellow author–the fabulous storyteller extraordinaire Cora Seton–and I both ended up launching new books yesterday. Happy belated book birthday to us!
Yay and finally! Hooked, River’s Sigh B & B #2, is ready for your reading delight. 🙂 Please join me in the adventure, and watch for little celebrations all week. Happy reading! I hope you get hooked on Hooked.
It will be available for Nook at Barnes & Noble soon and is up at a few other online venders as well. Paperbacks are available through various online distributors–and watch for signed copies at Misty River Booksin Terrace and Eddie’s News in Prince Rupert. Hooray!

Hooked by Ev Bishop
Knocked around by life—and then knocked up by a man she won’t speak of—Sam Kendall gives her baby for adoption.
Envisioning herself a lone cowboy, she avoids any relationships that might risk her heart or cause pain. There’s wonderful fun to be had if you don’t fall prey to the ludicrous notion of true love!
Lately, however, Sam is niggled by doubts. She’s not as content as she was. Plus her daughter Aisha has tracked her down—seventeen-years-old and pregnant. Despite misgivings, Sam checks into River’s Sigh Bed-and-Breakfast to meet her.
Then widower Charles Bailey, Aisha’s adoptive father, shows up, and Sam can’t control her outrage. What was her sacrifice for? She could’ve raised the kid to follow her stupid footsteps all on her own. And topping it off? Charlie’s a neurotic, stodgy jerk—even if he is ridiculously hot.
The longer Sam stays at River’s Sigh, exploring the wild outdoors—and her own inner desires—the more her terror grows. Maybe Charlie isn’t so terrible after all. Maybe his approach to life is actually refreshing. Maybe all this family stuff is something she could get hooked on.
Yet they’re opposites in every way, and worse: he’s her biological child’s adoptive dad. A romance between them would be too weird, wouldn’t it? Every part of Sam screams play it safe, run.
But what if, in spurning Charlie and Aisha, she’s turning her back on everything she never knew she wanted?
Eeii! I’ve been excited for weeks, but now only four more sleeps ’til Hooked hits the shelves. I can’t wait. I love River’s Sigh B & B (wish I could literally visit it), and the more time I spend with Jo and Callum–and Hooked’s Sam and Charlie–the more I want to spend. I’m so hoping you’ll feel the same way.
So today’s treat: a glimpse at the full cover, back jacket and all. Huge thanks to Kim Killion and her wonderful staff at The Killion Group for the gorgeous work.
I have lots of treats planned next week to celebrate the birth of Hooked, River’s Sigh B & B, #2, including a contest, a Facebook party with Cora Seton whose The Airman’s E-mail Order Bride hits shelves June 16th too, and a couple of *secret* things too. I hope you’ll join in the fun.
Wishing you an adventure and story packed weekend,
p.s. If you haven’t read Wedding Bands (Book 1 in the River’s Sigh B & B series) yet, don’t worry. Hooked totally stands on its own. That said, what are you waiting for? Buy it today. 🙂 Paperbacks are available at the wonderful Misty River Books in Terrace and Eddie’s News in Prince Rupert or online, and in eBook pretty much everywhere.
