Things are finally working out for Stella Gallagher. Underwhelmed by all the uninspiring men in her small town whom she’s known since grade school, she was beginning to give up on love altogether...until mysterious Italian Paolo Gentillo moved to Chelan. He’s smart, kind, gorgeous, and most importantly, completely obsessed with her: Stella has finally found her match.
So why did Paolo have to ruin everything by proposing? It’s way too soon. Stella tries to act thrilled, but there are things she hasn’t told Paolo - she doesn’t know how he’s going to feel about her when he finds out about her past. She wants to be with him, but now he’s offering her a priceless family heirloom engagement ring and his formidable mother’s coming all the way from Italy to meet her. And stay at her house. For a whole week.
Suddenly it’s all going wrong for Stella: Paolo’s mother hates her, her best friend, Carmen, is totally wrapped up in her own problems and ignoring her, and she’s struggling under the weight of her secret. All she and Paolo do is fight, and she’s never felt so alone. Forget the wedding - Stella is about to lose everything....
A heartwarming story about learning to trust in yourself and the people you love, Promises at Indigo Bay will show you that it’s never too late to try for your happy ending. For fans of Robyn Carr, Carolyn Brown, and Debbie Macomber.

“What a great start to a new series.... I could feel the warmth on my skin, smell the dusty earth and the sun kissed grapes and wished I had a clear blue lake to dive into too. A lovely heart-warming summer story.... I am very curious to find out what will happen next.” (B Is for Book Review)
