Home to Chapel Springs


A homeless author, a heartbroken daughter, and a theater ghost. There’s trouble in Chapel Springs.


There’s always someone new in Chapel Spring, either coming home or stirring up trouble.


Bestselling author Carin Jardine’s latest book is a flop. While the reviewers are happily skewering her, her racecar-driver-husband walks out on her and she’s evicted, because he hasn’t paid the lease on their condo for the last three months. Then she discovers he also he drained their bank accounts. Homeless and broke, she and her little boy have no choice but to retreat to the house she inherited from her nana in Chapel Springs—the house that’s been gutted. Then, a stranger knocks on her door. One that will change the course of her life.


After the residents thwarted Howie Newlander’s plans for a Miami-style resort on Chapel Lake, he’s running for mayor and spreading rumors about diverted water and misused taxes. The Lakeside Players want to remodel the town’s old theater, but it’s rumored to be haunted. When Newlander and Mayor Riley go head-to-head, Claire gets caught in the middle.


Claire’s youngest daughter is in love with a young man whose daddy is none other than Mayor Felix Riley…the man who man who blames Claire for every wrong in Chapel Springs. Having him part of her family isn’t in Claire’s plan. The years of her heartache should warn her daughter off this boy. So far, her daughter’s heart isn’t hearing the warnings.


With hearts pulled in all directions, will they find a home in Chapel Springs?

Which book in the series is this?

It doesn't matter, and it doesn't have to be one of my books even. :) I like to find out what characters stand out in a reader's memory. Then I study what the author did to make that character so memorable. 

Ane, she is asking about the book we are promoting in this discussion... you are responding to the discussion you started... we are offering this book here

LOL - Oh. Sigh. I need a handler.

That is why I am here :-) 

How many paperbacks and ebooks can I assign?

10 each. How's that, m since this will be the second go round for Home to Chapel Springs.

OK and I will be numbering them, please do not number your own requests, readers :-)

You got it.

Ane - In the Chapel Hill Survival the character that stood out the most to me was Claire. Her boldness, her willingness to listen to what God was teaching her... There was alot about her character that impressed me, and quite a bit I could relate to, such as jumping into committing to things she doesn't really have time for.  :-) 

Thanks, Amy. I appreciate that. 

Amy are you requesting this book or just asking about it?


I was wondering whether this book was prior to the last one I read - Chapel Springs Survival. I looked it up :-) and figured out it is book 2!

And I would enjoy reading a Paperback copy of this.  But have at least two months worth of books to read at the moment, so would likely be late December or January before I can post a review. If that is not an inconvenience, then YES!
