THE FAERIE TOUR

Welcome back to THE SHORES OF INDIAN LAKE! If you’re reading the series and following our Prism book tours, I’ll bet you weren’t expecting something as fantastical as a Faerie Tale, especially after dealing with cops, drug dealers and PTSD like we did with Cate Sullivan and Trent Davis in PROTECTING THE SINGLE MOM, now did you?

And who said that Faeries couldn’t be suspenseful or daring? Have you ever seen a faerie? And besides Tinkerbell and the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio, I’m guessing that except for depictions in art, you haven’t a clue what they’re like.

What would it be like if you were an artist like say, Isabelle Hawks, one of Sarah Jensen Bosworth’s best friends, who claims she has seen faeries flitting across Indian Lake and hiding amongst the Lily pads along the shore? What if you based your entire future and art career on portraits of faerie and water sprite faces? Or you believed so much in their magic that you continued to paint them year after year, hoping that someday, you’d be offered a chance to show your art at a famous metropolitan art gallery?

Well, that’s exactly what has happened to Isabelle. She has believed in her talent and her subjects all her life. Now, her chance is here, but on the same magical, romantic New Year’s Eve when she is only days away from showing her art to a Chicago gallery owner, her best friend and confidante, Scott Abbot, proposes marriage to her. His timing is just about the worst in all romantic history. Realities about his own life have hit Scott between the eyes. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that Isabelle is more in love with her career than she is with him. If he wants a family of his own, he’s not going to get it with Isabelle. Knowing he can never love another woman the way he loves Isabelle, Scott offers to become a foster parent to two abandoned children of a drug dealing/ heroin addicted mother.

Dead certain that he would find his life and goals fulfilled with five year old Bella and her eighteen month old brother, Michael, Scott is haunted daily by the void left in his world by Isabelle’s departure. Not only is her art selling well in Chicago, but a disturbingly handsome, famous and talented artist has shown far too much interest in Isabelle.

Scott has always been Isabelle’s rock. He’s been patient. But for the first time, he realizes he has to fight for her love---and fight to win.

Come with me on this new journey to the SHORES OF INDIAN LAKE.

He's ready to settle down…with or without her

Scott Abbott has always loved Isabelle Hawks. And he's always been her rock. Patient, dependable, strong. But lately, she's been acting like that rock is weighing her down. With her art career taking off, Isabelle has been spending less and less time in Indian Lake…and with him. Scott isn't even sure what they are to each other anymore. They might be friends with a history, but it sure doesn't feel like a future. Maybe it's time for Scott to set her free and focus on his own dreams. A real home. A family. All the things he had hoped to share with her…
