New Release Date for A Reservation for Romance

Dear Friends,

I know that many of you have been wondering where in the world A Reservation for Romance is! The third and final installment of my Homegrown Love Stories series has been delayed due to several unforeseen circumstances.

The past months have been so chaotic for me that there have been moments I wondered if this book would ever see the light of day. We’ve sold a home, bought a home, and moved to a new city. My job has been more hectic than normal and I’ve dealt with a lot of health issues over the past several months. I wish I could be a full-time author, but that’s just not possible. Sometimes it’s very difficult to juggle a job and a family and still find time to write! I’m in one of those difficult seasons now!

I normally wouldn’t be quite so candid about things, but I want you all to know that deciding to delay the book was not easy for me. In the end, I had to choose my family and my health over writing, and I hope you can understand that. For 18 previous books, I always chose the book and writing process over everything else. But I’m at a point in my life where I had to choose family and health as my top priority, even though I knew it would mean disappointing some of my readers. I am truly sorry for any inconvenience it has caused you.

Instead of canceling the book, I opted to delay the release, because Brooke’s story is one that deserves to be told. A Reservation for Romance will release November 1. Since the release month changed, I’ve also changed the time frame in which the story is set–so while it will open up mid-summer, it will include fall in Arcadia Valley as well. (which I’m kind of excited about because I love including both summer and fall!)

There won’t be a pre-order, but I’ll send out a newsletter with links to purchase as soon as it’s available, and I’ll also post on the Arcadia Valley Romance Facebook Page as well as my own personal Facebook page.

Thanks for understanding!

  1. Hello,
    My name is Snezhana but I go by Zhana. I just wanted to tell you that I read your book called ‘A Wedding to Remember in Charleston, South Carolina’ and absolutely loved it. One part in the book were you mentioned some verses from the Bible are now close to my heart. Thank you so much. Keep doing what your doing and God Bless You.



  2. Annalisa,
    Thank you for giving me hope. I have been struggling with finding that person. I’m 26 now and know my husband is out there, but it can be very hard being alone. I was so moved by your bio and how open you are. I don’t know you but I’m thanking God.



  3. Just watched the movie Love finds you in Charm, Ohio and such an amazing movie I now am buying all your books(hoping they are on kindle). I just loved the movie so much I need to read more. I love that it was a classy family friendly movie about love also…Can’t wait to read some more of your work.


  4. When is the Arcadia Valley Romance series book “a Reservation for Romance” due to release? I think it is the last in the series and the only one I have left to read! Please let me know. Thanks.


  5. My question is the same as Elaine’s. I have been waiting since July for the last book. That is the date I have written down as it being due. I am going back to reread “On Board for Romance”. I’d forgotten how much I loved that one until I just read the chapter on here.
