Happy Book Birthday - The Way Back!

February 1 marks the official release date of The Way Back, the eighth book in Abbie Williams’ amazing romantic, endearing and simply awesome series, The Shore Leave Cafe.

The series has explored this wonderful family of women who reside by the shores of a Minnesota lake and in these last few books of the series, takes a darker and somewhat paranormal turn.

Ruthann Gordon has disappeared.

Swept away by powerful circumstances beyond her control, Ruthann awakens in a place far removed from what she has ever known. Terrified and alone, fate guides her path to people she is certain she has never met, but somehow knows.

Marshall Rawley has also vanished from his hometown of Jalesville, Montana, and there has been no word for months. Trapped in the wild and dangerous past, Ruthann discovers truths she never imagined – and begins to understand her role in saving not only her family, but the family of the man she loves more than her own life.

You can start the series from the beginning in
print, ebook or audio or pick it up with Until Tomorrow by requesting it over at NetGalley where we’ll keep it up for a few more weeks.
