Elizabeth Shaw is the preeminent, and only, wedding planner at the historic beach resort on Jekyll Island. She’s sure she’ll land the newly created role overseeing all major events. Then she’ll get a raise and won’t be forced to leave. Mark Edwards doesn’t need any more stress. He’s ready to slow down and enjoy the tiny seaside town he calls home. His boss pushes him to apply for the new management position and he agrees. After a decade in catering, he’s sure he can do the events job without any trouble. Neither counted on the other getting in the way.

10 Random Things About Tidal Patterns
In all of my books, I’ve worked funny things from my own life into the narrative. Tidal Patterns holds the most inside jokes.
1. Phil (named after my Dad) cooks a signature dish that my Dad invented, fried tuna (from a can) and eggs.
2. Lizzie’s house is my parents’ actual dream home.
3. In my family, we are all dog owners. My dog is in another book. Scooter is modeled after my cousin’s dog. He was one of the sweetest and goofiest souls ever to grace the earth.
4. Like Lizzie, as an adult, I signed up for tap dance lessons for several years. I hadn’t tapped since childhood but needed a break from my very stressful job. I enjoyed class but our twice-yearly recitals did leave me feeling a bit ridiculous.
5. Miss Rose’s tracksuits were based on very real active wear I couldn’t convince my mother to leave on the rack in the 90’s.
6. In my books, everyone drinks a lot of coffee. What can I say? Art imitates life.
7. I worked as an assistant for a wedding planner for a while. It’s a fascinating balance of organization and emotional counseling. Lizzie takes on far more than I think I’d ever be able to handle.
8. The series is called Golden Shores, both an homage to the nickname for the location, the Golden Isles, and a reference to the older cast of supporting characters
9. I hope I’m Miss Rose when I grow-up, but I think I’m more like Miss Marie
10. The tiny airport featured at the end of the book might seem impossibly small, but is very much real
