It's Book Release Day - so I have to do a little promo here ...

IN SHELTER COVE, Book Three in my Angel's Bay Series, hits the shelves Tuesday, April 27th.  If you haven't started reading the series yet, don't worry, you can still jump in.  Each book has a new central story that stands alone, so you won't be lost.  Of course, for the richest reading experience, you might want to read all of them! 

Here's a blurb from the back cover --

A long-ago shipwreck off the California coast led the survivors to the haven they named Angel's Bay. Their  shared adversity brought fellowship and joy ... but also unsuspected secrets...

The theft of three priceless paintings sent Derek Kane to prison and destroyed the dreams of his wife,  Brianna. When Derek unexpectedly dies just weeks before his release, Brianna returns to Angel's Bay with her young son, determined to prove her husband's innocence and find the missing paintings.  Her efforts are stymied by Jason Marlow, the police officer who sent Derek to jail -- betraying his former friend. And when unexpected passion flares between Brianna and Jason, she must choose between the past and the present, the guilty and the innocent, the truth and the lies.  For nothing is what it seems ...

If you haven't yet read ON SHADOW BEACH (book 2) which came out last month, the book is still available at most bookstores and can be ordered online.  

Here are some of the rave reviews ...

"With ON SHADOW BEACH, Barbara Freethy writes an excellent, easy-to-read novel.  It flows beautifully  with intriguing and appealing characters.  It will grab you within the first few pages and just keep getting better." Romance Reviews Today 

"A lovely contemporary romance ... you can never get enough of Freethy’s excellent characters. She’s a master at creating whole relationships in just a few short paragraphs." Romantic Times

"On Shadow Beach is another heart stopper by Barbara Freethy. The author has an uncanny knack to draw the reader into this little slice of true Americana. On Shadow Beach hums with red hot passion and duplicity that is underlined by a bit of mystique to make this novel one of those you don’t want to put down." Winter Haven News

"Ms. Freethy has again written a suspenseful tale entwined with romance, heartache, rekindled relationships, close community ties and even miracles. This captivating tale will leave the reader guessing till the end and surprised by the outcome. Book two in the "Angel Bay" series stands alone, offering a great read."

Hope you'll check out my series.  I just finished writing book four, which is tentatively titled, AT WHISPER FALLS and will be released February 2011.

If you've been reading the series, I'd love to know what you think!  Comment here or send me an email. 

Happy Reading!


  1. Hi Barbara - I am loving the series. Am off to pick up the new book today. Looking forward to another great read!

  2. Thanks Jane and Diana - Hope you enjoy the books!

  3. I just finished On Shadow Beach and absolutely LOVED IT! I am heading to the store now to buy the next one. I hope there's going to be more books. I am so intrigued by all the characters in Angel's Bay and I want to know what's going to happen to all of them. What about Joe and Charlotte? They're two of my favorites.

  4. I just finished reading In Shelter Cove and I like how you put the updates in the back for the previous characters. It's nice to know what the characters are doing even after their story ends. I love the humor you throw in the books. I found myself chuckling throughout the books. Can't wait to ready about Charlotte and Joe!!
