Summer is speeding to an end and with it comes some new beginnings and the return of some old friends of mine.
The O’Briens will be back in Chesapeake Shores for a fourth season on Hallmark Channel Sunday nights at 8 beginning August 25 for six weeks of new family drama. You’ll probably notice that Nell (Diane Ladd) is not around in the first couple of episodes, but never fear, she will be back home in time for some big changes in our characters’ lives. Where would the O’Briens be, after all, without Nell’s wisdom?
For long-time readers, one of my most beloved families — the Adams dynasty of Texas — will be back in stores beginning with CHRISTMAS AT WHITE PINES on September 24, followed by WINTER’S PROPOSAL on November 26 and THE HEART OF HILL COUNTRY on December 30. Each of these volumes will contain two books from this popular series, so a great, value-added way for new readers to catch up on books they might have missed.
And on one more front, I’m delighted to let all of you know that the Sweet Magnolias series is now filming outside of Atlanta for Netflix. I hope to visit the set in September, so watch for photos on Facebook and Twitter. The cast is headlined by JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Maddie, Brooke Elliott as Dana Sue and Heather Headley as Helen. All My Children fan-favorite Justin Bruening will play Cal Maddox. I expect the 10 episodes to be available in early 2020, but will keep you posted on that as soon as it’s announced.
Meantime, I wish you all cool evenings and heart-warming romance this fall, plus much joy all year long!
