COME ON IN

Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes, stay awhile, and have a look around. I write stories about small towns with larger-than-life characters and unforgettable heroes and heroines who I hope will take up a permanent place in your heart. There’s always something good cooking in my books (I used to be a food writer), usually a mystery or two, and lots of tender romance.

Right now I’m working on my new Dry Creek Ranch series about a cattle town in California’s Gold Country, where three hunky cowboys are about to meet their matches. Look for the first one in the summer of 2019. In the meantime, if you love small towns and big heroes check out my Nugget and Garner Brothers series. Both take place in the Sierra Nevada and feature close-knit mountain towns that help the lost and lonely find their way back to happiness . . . and love. I can’t wait to share these stories with you. Enjoy your visit and feel free to drop me a line. I love hearing from readers.

Cheers,
Stacy

The New York Times bestselling author delivers an emotional, intimate work of women’s fiction centered on a young widow, and filled with reflections on love, loss, and finding hope, and even joy, after heartache—for fans of Josie Silver, Sophie Cousins, and Rebecca Serle.

After losing the love of her life, a young widow must reimagine her future and navigate the fears, doubts, and even flashes of joy that lie ahead . . .

No marriage is perfect, but in Rachel Ackermann’s eyes, hers came close. From the very start, her love story with Josh was wonderful. There’s just one problem with stories: no matter how great the beginning, there’s also an ending. For Rachel and Josh, it comes suddenly and far too soon.

Trying to move on without Josh feels impossible, and it’s tempting for Rachel to cocoon in the dark with the reminders of the life they should have shared. But her quirky, sometimes exasperating family won’t let that happen. And as Rachel is nudged back into the sunlight, she uncovers a trove of surprising secrets—and an opportunity to save a family legacy—and maybe save herself in the process . . .

But it will mean forging an unexpected alliance with her late father’s unpopular young “trophy wife.” And then there’s Rache’s renewed bond with Campbell Scott, the boy who another lifetime ago broke her heart. Just when Rachel thinks she’s got everything figured out, she learns that in between beginnings and endings lie new chapters . . .

A journey well worth taking . . . heartfelt and even funny at times, I absolutely loved it. I would watch the hell out of a movie version!” –USA Today Bestseller Abby Jimenez

 “Can we experience more than one great love in our lives? Through a heartbreaking exploration of love, loss, and grief, Finz weaves together a beautiful story of healing, hope, and unexpected second chances.” –USA Today Bestseller Amy Pine

On an inherited ranch in Northern California, one family is discovering all the possibilities life can offer—and the kind of love that will outlast even the land . . .

When Angela Dalton comes home to Dry Creek Ranch after a long absence, she’s carrying weighty emotional baggage. Charmed by a handsome face, she inadvertently bank-rolled members of a violent militia group, all of whom now want her dead for working with the authorities. Leaving witness protection for the ranch is a risk until she can figure out where to take her life next—and the good-looking cowboy who lives across the creek from her cabin is an inconvenient distraction. She can’t trust her heart to anyone again, even a gruffly sweet man like Tuff Garrison . . .

Tuff doesn’t get involved—with anyone. It’s been his guiding principle since leaving home alone at fifteen to find his own way in the world. But the haunted look on Angela’s gorgeous face is impossible for him to ignore—and the heat of their attraction has become a blaze. When a set of dangerous men track her down, they’ll have to rely on each other to escape the threat—and take a chance that trusting each other will be worth a lifetime of love…
