Walking on Sea Glass final-blurb


Hi, Carrie ~

I’m excited about this story, which, though fiction, is loosely inspired by some true events. This is the first in a series of contemporary romances called Sea Glass Inn Novels.

Sounds great! I love beach stories. Can you give us a quick blurb about the story?

Falling in love could tear them apart …

Suddenly single, Liddy Buckle flees the desert to work at an up-and-coming seaside resort with her best friend, Meg. The breezy backdrop of an inn by the sea offers Liddy the dream of starting fresh, but soon she is shocked to discover another setback brewing in her life. Despite the battle that lies ahead, she finds herself drawn to Beau Quinn, a captivating widower with a wounded heart of his own.

As Beau and Liddy’s burgeoning relationship attempts to survive, will Liddy have the courage to trust a man again–especially one as emotionally fragile as Beau? Can Beau commit to a woman facing a challenging recovery? And what is going on behind the scenes at Sea Glass Inn, where late night deliveries and secret meetings are spoken about in whispers?

Set in a fictional California seaside town, Walking on Sea Glass weaves a romantic story of courage, faith, and the power of true love.

What are others saying about Walking on Sea Glass?

Our amazing mutual friend, Katie Cushman, said it’s:

“A poignant story of loss, overcoming, and finding joy along the way.” ~ Kathryn Cushman, author of Finding Me and Fading Starlight

I love Katie’s books, so I know Walking on Sea Glass is a special book, too.

  1. I love to go to Cambria, CA to walk on the beach looking for moonstones. One of my favorite places!

      1. Summerland beach holds a special place for both my husband and I…spent many days hanging out, walking, and spending time with the Lord for the past 25 plus years. (And Summerland cafe is our very favorite breakfast spot!) 🙂

  2. I love to walk on the beach at Isle of Palms, South Carolina. We were there a few weeks ago and there was a wedding. The bride and groom were having their photos taken on the beach. The bride’s dress flowed on the beach and looked beautiful.

    1. Have never been to S. Carolina (only Nags head in N. Carolina). Sounds beautiful.

  3. Beach on Lake Michigan. Love looking for sea glass there. Yes, they have seaglass on the lake beach. 😊

  4. I like Playalinda Beach in Titusville, FL. It has views of the Kennedy Space Center launching pads and spectacular wildlife viewing since it’s a part of the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. A friend of mine, Rebekah Lynn, has even written a Christian fiction book, Jessie, based on the history of the area. Love when it’s low tide and small pools form at the beach shoreline…perfect place for our kids to play when they were little.

    1. Maine is definitely on my list! We’ll be empty-nesters in the fall so I’m thinking of planning a trip to the east coast 🙂

  5. I havent been to many beaches except the ones near La Jolla and San Diego, CA so guess they are my favorite ones.

  6. Myrtle Beach, SC. Great memories playing golf with my husband and then soothing our sore feet in the ocean at sunset!

  7. I live in St Petersburg, FL and we’re surrounded by beaches. It’s hard to pick a favorite. I love St Pete beach and the Hurricane restaurant, but my favorite for walking is Treasure Island
