Coming Soon - The Healer of Briarwood + Audiobook Giveaway

I'M EXCITED TO announce that our dear Doctor Brody of Briarwood is getting his own book! You will also meet a new character, Katharine Kiely, who arrives in Briarwood with a plan that does not go as expected. Brody has been mentioned here and there throughout the series, but now you really get to know him in book 7 of the Montana Gallagher series! There's more! Book 7 is actually the first in a sub-series I'm calling Tales from Briarwood, so we get to spend more time getting to know the townsfolk.

This book has been a long time in coming, for it was originally planned to release late summer, except . . . 2020. When all is said and done, it was finding solace with Brody and Katharine in Briarwood, and in nature, that helped push me through.

For those new to the series, although the Gallagher family and other folks at Hawk's Peak make an appearance, this can be read without reading the other books first, but you aren't going to want to miss getting to know everyone in the first six books.

Stay tuned for release updates! While you're at the blog, get to know the Gallaghers a little more with the Letters from Hawk's Peak.

Be well, be kind, and stay safe!

The Healer of Briarwood

A man with a healer’s touch. A woman with a healer’s heart.

Doctor Finnegan Brody tends his patients, keeps to himself, and vividly remembers the heartaches and trials from the Civil War and why he devoted his life to healing. He watches the townspeople live their lives, loving and laboring alongside one another, and wonders if one day he will give a woman as much time and dedication as he gives the people of Briarwood.

Katharine Kiely has a deep-rooted stubbornness to never give up, even if it means leaving behind her comfortable life by the sea to protect her father’s health and help expand his empire. When she finally arrives in Briarwood to convince the Gallaghers a spur line should cross their land, nothing goes as she expected.

Finn, with his knowledge of healing the people, and Katharine, who learns how to heal with her heart, join together as the townsfolk of Briarwood face challenges and choices that could alter their way of life forever.

Welcome to Briarwood and Hawk’s Peak, where friendship, love, and hope conquer overwhelming odds.
