|A Bell in the Garden|
When the owner of a new business digs up buried bones on opening day, the rumor mill in Spicetown comes alive!
Mayor Cora Mae Bingham and Police Chief Conrad Harris are faced with the Chamber of Commerce President on a rampage, the sweet biscotti-baking neighbor living a lie, the notorious town floozy being misunderstood and everyone in town speculating about who is missing.
Figuring out who the bones belong to will open up the cold cases in Spicetown and unearth all the old gossip that was never truly buried. Cora Mae and Chief Harris learn a few things about their fellow citizens along the way.
When a crime stopper senior citizen starts to act oddly, a new business sells fake products and the New Year’s Eve fireworks display disappears, Mayor Cora Mae Bingham and the Spicetown Police Chief Conrad Harris have to get involved.
Cora keeps an eye on her quaint small town nestled in the southern hills of Ohio. Although Spicetown is sprinkled with culinary street names, stores full of spices, and quaint life-long citizens, out-of-towners can bring in a dicey element.

I know when you meet this warm unique family, you will want to follow each of them on their individual journey to discovering what Eden Hall means to them and how the strength of their alliance helps them each find love and happiness.
Finding Eden - By day, Mary Alayna Dalton is a successful Chicago professional who is being considered for a promotion to the top position in her company. By night, she shares her home with six young men who grew up at Eden Hall, a boys' foster home, and performs with them in their band that plays at the local pub. The only thing missing in her life is a loving relationship with someone accepting of her whole life. When a business encounter thrusts Clark Dulanty into her life, he accidentally stumbles from her days into her nights and uncovers both sides of Mary Alayna Dalton. Their encounters are turbulent and their ensuing romance revealing as Clark slowly discovers all her secrets, only to expose the ambiguities of his own life choices on his journey to Finding Eden.
Saving Eden - When Eden Hall's long time administrator retires and the boys' foster home is threatened by possible closure, Ryan Holt steps in as administrator. Growing up next door to Eden Hall rather than inside didn't keep him from feeling it was a part of him. The job was demanding but lonely until Ryan wins a national award for his work and the Chicago Tribune sends a reporter, TJ McCord, to do a story on his success.
He finds it is more challenging to find success with Taylor than it was with Eden Hall, but just as rewarding.
Healing Eden - Vincent Dane struggles to deal with past mistakes and misunderstandings in the hopes of healing old wounds. For someone who didn't feel as though he had much of a past, what he did have he didn't feel he'd handled too well. An ambulance ride gives him a chance to right those wrongs and rescue his dreams.
Protetecting Eden - Chicago Police Detective Sean Clary returns to active duty after a knife injury only to get an assignment that turns out to be his greatest challenge. His motto had always been "Protect and Serve", but he'd never been in a position to possibly lose his future by protecting his past. Carena Cabot shows him that although he is a unique man, there is a woman out there just like him and she forces him to finally face himself.
Completing Eden - Seth McGinnis is the last single man standing and it's a lonely place to be. As he battles his friends and pseudo family for privacy, he wrestles with his own conscience and decides he can't let Brogan's Pub be the only thing in his life.
Although his covert methods put a strain on his Eden Hall bond, he finally decides to take a risk on fulfilling his undisclosed dreams. Finding out along the way that he actually has a big Irish family was just an added bonus.

Calinda Willow returns home to help her aging father at the end of his life. She copes with the loss by throwing herself into her work, rejects social invitations from her friend, Jackie, and thinks she is content with her solitary life.
They are both wrong.
