Chapel Springs Survival
A mail-order bride, a town overrun with tourists, and illegal art. How on earth will Claire and Chapel Springs survive?
Claire Bennett's Operation Marriage Revival succeeded and life is good. That is until the mayor's brother blabs a secret: Claire's nineteen-year-old son has married a Brazilian mail order bride. When Claire tries to welcome her, she's ridiculed, rebuffed, and rejected. Loving this girl is like hugging a prickly cactus.
Lydia Smith is happily living alone and running her spa—then the widow on the hill becomes a blushing bride. Then her groom's adult son moves in—on everything.
From the first sighting of a country music star in The Painted Loon, Chapel Springs is inundated with stargazers, causing residents to flee the area. When her best friends put their house on the market, Claire is forced to do something or lose the closest thing to a sister she’s got. With her son's future at stake and the town's problems to solve, it's Claire's who needs a guardian angel.
About Ane Mulligan (Atlanta, Georgia Author)
Ane has been a voracious reader ever since her mother instilled within her a love of reading at an early age. Together they would escape into worlds otherwise unknown. Then, a new love entered Ane's life when she saw Mary Martin in PETER PAN. Struck with a fever from which she never recovered, she submerged herself in drama through high school and college, but, alas, Broadway never found her phone number.
While a large, floppy straw hat is her favorite, Ane has worn many different ones: hairdresser, legislative affairs director (that's a fancy name for a lobbyist), business manager, managing director for a Community Theatre and writer. Her lifetime experience provides a plethora of fodder for her Southern-fried fiction (try saying that three times fast).
She wrote and published her first script in 1996 and to date has over 4-dozen in print, and numerous articles on various aspects of drama and the craft of writing, and 6 novels and counting.
