BECALMED: Fun with Book Covers


Becalmed Cover     The proposed cover by the designer at Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. I figure where there's a cover, there's bound to be a book someday. And here's the Back Cover Copy: When a Southern woman with a broken heart falls for a widower with a broken boat, it's anything but smooth sailing. Tadie Longworth doesn't spend much time worrying that she’s turning into one of Beaufort, North Carolina’s, spinsters. She has a gift shop full of her own jewelry designs and a sweet little sailboat to take her mind off the guy who got away. But now he’s back---with the drop-dead gorgeous wife he picked instead of Tadie---and he won’t leave her alone. When widower Will Merritt sails into town with a broken boat and an inquisitive seven-year-old daughter, he provides the perfect distraction—until that distraction turns into something more when Tadie offers them shelter during a hurricane. Over candlelit board games, Jilly becomes the daughter she could have had and Will the man she always wanted . . . only, he’s sworn never to let another woman in his life. Any day now, he’s going to finish those repairs and that ship's going to sail—straight out of Tadie’s life.
