Welcome to Crane’s Cove!

Crane’s Cove is an idyllic coastal town, set between the Atlantic Ocean and the Acadian Woods. More than half the land has been in the Crane family for generations. Visitors are just as welcome as the many lifelong residents, many of whom are Cranes or are descendants of the Wabenakis, the Native American tribe who first lived on this land. Other longtime families came to the area a century ago to work in the whaling, fishing, and shipping industries.

There’s always a friendly face waiting to serve customers at quaint eateries, like Dockside Ice Cream, an ice cream parlor shaped like a giant milk bottle, or The Lobster Trap. And the Cliffside Diner is probably the only place where a former FBI agent pours the coffee and slices the pie. A tiny white clapboard church with stained glass and polished pews is the beating heart of the town.

Craggy cliffs descending to beautiful beaches, horseback-riding trails through white birch and pine forests, and secluded wildflower meadows offer gorgeous views that could only be painted by God. Guests can experience horseback rides, ocean kayaking, and midday picnics at the Cliff Walk Resort, which offers luxury suites as well as rustic cabins. Townsfolk mingle with resort guests at beach potlucks and movie-themed nights, complete with karaoke performances by the town’s “golden girls.” Crane’s Light, a floating lighthouse, now converted into an exclusive guest suite, provides the finishing touch to an already perfect town.

Lanie Owens has just survived a horrific attack by a stalker.

To Lanie’s dismay, he hires a bodyguard to protect her. Lanie’s nightmares are debilitating, but giving up control of her life is unacceptable.

Army Ranger Matt Saunders knows all about nightmares. He’s spent the last year recovering from an injury he sustained during his last tour and the hellish events that caused it. Anxious to prove that he is fit to go back overseas, he accepts the bodyguard job. The resort is everything they imagined – tranquil, safe, and a place to heal. Gradually, they open up to each other and realize they have a lot in common – except their future plans.

When a resort video goes viral, Lanie’s stalker knows just where to find her. Can they battle their personal demons in time to come together to fight the very real threat coming to destroy her?

Easton Crane has loved Kat for as long as he can remember. But when she shows up after rejecting his proposal a year ago, he’s more confused than ever. After all, he’s already sacrificed six years of his life to care for her after her traumatic brain injury. If his proposal couldn’t keep her in town, what was it that brought her back? Was it him or was Kat hiding something?

When a hurricane hits Crane’s Cove and threatens the life of Kat’s beloved horse, the two are faced with the challenge of working together to save her. Can they battle the storm of old memories and wounds to rebuild their love stronger than before?
