part of the Lobster Cove series, published by The Wild Rose Press
Childless heiress Abigail Adams Longley and three other widows bond over a Renaissance masterpiece in Florence, Italy, and find love, friendship and joy in their joint venture to open an art gallery at the Longley mansion in Lobster Cove, Maine.
Since the death of her husband, Abigail has been lonely and drifting in a house that’s too big and a town that’s too small. When she literally runs into sexy widower and whale-watching excursion captain Tack Garrity on the dock, she’s entranced by his adorable five-year-old daughter. But will Tack, who has harbored a secret crush on Abigail for almost two decades, be able to capture her heart?
Abigail Adams Longley looked aroundat the three women flanking her in Hall 10/14 of the Uffizi Gallery. They were all staring at The Birth of Venus like wide-eyed art students. Admittedly, the painting was as compelling as when the Medici family originally commissioned the tempera on canvas in the fifteenth century. But for Abigail, seeing the painting again wasn’t cathartic. It was beautiful, but that wasn’t the feeling she was going for. Peace. Why couldn’t she get some goddamned peace in this life?
Abigail glanced at the square-cut, four-carat diamond on her finger, gazed at the sparkle of the ring she hadn’t removed since the day Louis had proposed. And now, a whole year after his death, she still hadn’t taken it off. Conventional wisdom dictated that you weren’t supposed to make any major life decisions until a year after a spouse’s death. Well, it had been a year already, and she hadn’t wanted to make even one decision—major or minor—about where to live, where to go, or what to do. Whoever said money can’t buy happiness had devised another dead-on axiom. She had all the money in the world—in fact Louis had left her a big chunk of the globe. He’d left her set for life, monetarily. But she would have traded every cent for the chance to be with him again. Louis was gone, and the sooner she faced the fact that she was alone on this planet, the better off she’d be.

Linda, Thank you for hosting me today on your blog. I’m very happy to be here.
What a beautiful cover! I love series romances, and this one sounds like fun. And what’s not to like about sexy widower who happens to be a dad? Congrats on the new release.
Thank you so much for commenting. I have to admit, I think this is my favorite cover of all of my books. It is supposed to be reminiscent of the painting, The Birth of Venus. Tack Garrity is a great hero. When the heroine first meets him she mistakes him for a blueberry farmer, but in reality he’s hiding a big secret. The daughter in the book was one of my favorite parts to write. My favorite line of hers is, “When I grow up I’m going to marry the Prince of Wales.” She means whales, since her father operates a whale-watching cruise. Thanks for the congratulations.
I’ve read the book, and it’s a fantastic read. Love the cover! Best of luck, Marilyn.
Thank you Alicia, for your good wishes. I appreciate that. I’m glad you like the cover.
Sounds tempting! Am looking forward to reading it soon. And yes, ditto all comments re the cover.
The covers for all the books in the Lobster Cove series have been great, and yours is no exception, Marilyn. Best of luck with The Widows’ Gallery.
Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. I agree. I love the covers for the Lobster Cove series books. Thanks for your kind words.
This sounds like a great story. Must add it to my TBR pile. And I agree with the others about the lovely cover. Best of luck with it!
Marilyn: This books sounds so interesting. I love the art angle. And a gallery set in a mansion in Maine.
Abigail and Tack sound like a fascinating twosome as well. Oh and of course the gorgeous cover!
Good luck with the series.
I am a great fan of Marilyn’s–and plan to add this to my TBR list. Hoping for great success!
Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy the read. It will be perfect for Valentine’s Day, four romances, four happy endings in one book.
Hi, Marilyn! I love the cover, too, and like it when there’s a child in a love story. Adds so much dimension. Looking forward to reading this! Best wishes!
Thank you. Yes, the little girl in this story is really one of my favorite characters. I’m glad you’re looking forward to reading it. The cover seems to be a hit. It was done by artist Debbie Taylor, who has done many of my covers.
