Sweet Melody
(Seabrook Romance #1)
By Heidi McCahan
Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 242 Pages
August 1st 2019


When a struggling bakery owner is rescued by a wannabe songwriter with hidden culinary talents, they discover they can make sweet harmony … if they can only learn to work together.

Rhett Foster longs to change the world with his music, yet he can’t even finish writing one song. Battered by a string of failures and disillusioned, he returns home to Portland, Oregon. While he desperately wants to create a chart-topping hit, his dad mandates a new mission: move to coastal vacation hotspot Seabrook, Washington and expand the family’s successful restaurant chain.

In danger of destroying her late parents’ legacy if she doesn’t diversify her menu, Lindsay Carmichael will try anything to save her bakery. But with a tiny budget and an injured employee who can’t work, she has no choice but to sink the last of her savings into buying a dilapidated food truck and hiring Rhett as a part-time barista. What she doesn’t know is that the handsome songwriter has a secret … one that could destroy her business and her heart.

Guest Post: 5 Reasons We Adore Seabrook

I decided to write a book featuring Seabrook as the setting because my family and I have enjoyed several wonderful vacations in this gorgeous coastal community. When you read Sweet Melody, I hope you’ll get a small taste of this amazing part of Washington State and maybe you’ll take the time to visit Seabrook too.

Fantastic Sunsets: A front row seat to a gorgeous sunset over the Pacific Ocean is a spectacular experience. Many vacation homes are situated with porches, balconies and huge windows offering a view of the ocean, but for those who rent cottages and homes elsewhere in the community, Seabrook is built on a wide bluff with permanent benches, communal walkways and unlimited access to the beach. Fog and clouds occasionally obstruct the view, which makes the opportunity to see a sunset all the more enjoyable.

One-of-a-kind vacation destination: From the minute I stepped out of the car on my first visit to Seabrook, I was completely smitten. The rental houses are well-appointed with everything you need and there are a variety of options and price points. The layout of the neighborhoods and architectural design, ability to walk anywhere in the community in 5-10 minutes, variety of cute retail shops (hello, amazing bookstore!) are just a few of the incredible reasons why Seabrook is a one-of-a-kind family-friendly place to spend your next vacation.

The incredible beauty of the Pacific Northwest is right outside your door: Long walks on the beach, exploring the old growth forests, hiking, day trip to Olympic National Park, mountain biking, flying a kite, surfing and perhaps kiteboarding are just some of the many ways you can enjoy the breathtaking nature surrounding Seabrook, Pacific Beach and beyond.

Intentional connectedness: It’s easy to unplug from ordinary life and reconnect with people you care about. The founder of Seabrook, Casey Roloff, gave careful thought to the details of this planned community in an effort to emphasize connection and relationships. He and his wife are raising their 4 children at Seabrook and there are about 90 other permanent residents who call Seabrook home. It is a family-friendly place that inspires you to slow down, hang out and talk to your people.

S’mores: Numerous community gathering places have firepits and visitors are also allowed to build a fire on the beach at a reasonable distance from the dunes. We built a fire and enjoyed S’mores almost every night of our vacation. It’s simple and fun and there’s just something about a fire that draws people together.

About the Author

Heidi secretly dreamed of writing a book for most of her childhood, but a particularly painful rejection letter in middle school convinced her to tuck that dream away. Instead, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington and a Master’s Degree in Athletic Training from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. After a brief career as a Certified Athletic Trainer, Heidi married her husband Steve, then she dusted off her big dream of becoming a published author and launched her first contemporary romance into the world in 2014. A huge fan of coffee, dark chocolate, and happily ever after, Heidi currently lives in North Carolina with Steve, three active boys and one amazing Goldendoodle.
