Edenbrooke fans, it’s finally here!

Sandwiched between texts describing the goings on of my beloved nieces and nephews, my sister reminded me that today would be the day. Edenbrooke fans, IT’S HERE — and you’re not going to be able to wait until Christmas to read it.

Julianne Donaldson has just released the prequel to Edenbrooke, one of my favorite stories of all time. The newly released novelette is Heir to Edenbrooke, told from the perspective of Philip Wyndham, the most sought-after bachelor in London. It’s available electronically for $3.99. (There’s a free Kindle app that can be downloaded for most smartphones and tablets.)


If you’re not familiar with Edenbrooke, it combines romance (the clean kind) with adventure, wit and intelligence. I’ve recommended it time and again, and it doesn’t disappoint. Julianne Donaldson is a masterful storyteller, and her debut novel took so many by complete surprise. I was one of them.


She turned us into eager overnight fans. (Overnight, because we found ourselves unable to put the book down.) If you’re unfamiliar with Edenbrooke, treat yourself. I have a feeling you’re going to love it!

Sarah Elizabeth resides in a small Southern town with her husband, son, and their not-quite-therapy comfort dogs, a miniature Schnoodle and Goldendoodle. She once enjoyed a life with a slightly faster pace as an award-winning reporter, and marketing professional, but these days, her life is much more quiet. She writes about life observations, experiences with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, other chronic illness, and occasionally, her love of Jane Austen.  Click here to follow on Facebook.
