Do Miracles Really Happen at The Inn at Laurel Creek?
Do Miracles Really Happen at The Inn At Laurel Creek?
With a broken heart and a bruised ego, best-selling romance novelist Zoe Mayfield retreats to The Inn at hoping to recharge her muse, and finally finish her two months too late romantic comedy novel for the biggest publisher in NYC.
Zoe’s heart just won’t let her write what it doesn’t feel, and when your best friend—make that ex-best friend, steals your boyfriend—make that ex-boyfriend, from you, it kills every romantic bone in your body, making it impossible to write a happily ever after ending.
Crumbled paper and blacked out lines won’t cut it in romance writing, and if Zoe’s heart dies, her book deal might just die right along with it.
The night Daniel steps through The Inn’s French doors, sparks fly.
Will he be the miracle The Inn’s owners promised, the one that revives Zoe’s broken heart, or will Daniel’s story leave Zoe’s heart crumbled in pieces like the pages of her unfinished romantic comedy?

In UNFINISHED BUSINESS AN ANGELA PANTHER MYSTERY, #1 AMAZON bestselling author Carolyn Ridder Aspenson introduces her now trademark blend of witty dialog and laugh out loud banter in the first book of her hilarious and heartwarming paranormal chick lit, women’s sleuth mystery series, the Angela Panther Mystery series.
Stay at home wife and mother Angela Panther has a gift: she can talk to the dead.
She just doesn’t know it. Yet.
Long suppressed and forgotten, her gift resurfaces with the death of her mother. Angela considers it a curse, preferring her happy, albeit a tad dull life—fulfilling marriage, overly dramatic daughter, son’s lacrosse games and coffee dates with her BFF to dealing with the unfinished business of the dead.
However, the dead just don’t care. They know she can get messages to their loved ones, and when they need help, it’s Angela they haunt.
As Angela reluctantly delivers messages and crosses over spirits, her mother stays, refusing to go until her own unfinished business is handled, matters that concern her family.
Can Angela discover the truth behind her mother’s decision to stay, and if she does, will her heart survive?
This book was a finalist in the 2014 Rone Award from InD’Tale Magazine.

When it comes to family, a mother’s choice is always love.
“Be careful what you wish for because karma has a way of biting you in the butt.” That’s what Angela Panther’s mother, Fran always said.
And boy was she was right.
When Angela first discovered her gift to gab with ghosts, she fought it tooth and nail. But the second she decided it wasn’t so bad—as long as she kept it from going viral—tragedy hit, and the universe decided to teach her a lesson.
With her psychic service disconnected, Angela discovers spirits still find ways to communicate; she’s just not sure who’s doing what, and why.
When her best friend Mel suspects her husband of cheating, she asks Angela to help her prove it. They concoct the perfect plan, but to make it work, they’ll need help from Angela’s mother. There’s just one tiny little problem—Fran’s dead.
As the duo works to catch the cheater, Angela struggles to decipher messages she assumes are from her mother, messages that intensify in their urgency.
Only the messages aren’t from Fran.
Angela finally figures out the messages and knows if she delivers them, she’ll regain her gift, and her secret will go viral. If she doesn’t, her gift is gone forever, and so is her connection to her mother.
Now Angela must choose between the happiness of the spirit’s family and her fears of damaging her own.
In UNBREAKABLE BONDS, AN ANGELA PANTHER MYSTERY, bestselling women’s sleuth mystery author Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s snarky dialog and hilarious banter between psychic medium Angela and her best friend Mel will keep you laughing, and the touching scenes between the living and the dead will tug at your heart strings and bring tears to your eyes.
Listen to an audio sample of Unbreakable Bonds.
“Unbreakable Bonds was one of those books I couldn’t put down. The dialogue was snappy, the characters were real, and the plot was perfectly crafted. I LOVE this series. The author makes the paranormal element so incredibly believable in her writing. The ghosts aren’t presented as chilling or scary–they’re real people who need to make one last contact with the living. This novel made me laugh and cry–and the little twist at the end has me excited for where the author is going to take the series! Can’t wait to read more.” —Caroline Fardig, Best Selling Author of It’s Just a Little Crush
“A delightfully funny, slightly irreverent paranormal romp! Especially engaging is the unique twist in the relationship between Angela and her deceased mother; funny and tender, with her mother still advising, admonishing, and cheering. Just as enjoyable, however, are the warm, often humorous, and sometimes even poignant moments with Angela’s daughter, Emily, or her friend Mel. Even though there are several story threads, they mesh nicely and complement each other. This is a story full of fun for anyone searching for a fresh new way to laugh & enjoy the trials of family!” —InD’tale Magazine
