Whispering Pines (Paperback)
A shocking job loss will force Renee to remember the beauty of new beginnings.
Summers at Whispering Pines defined Renee Clement's childhood. Days meant swimming and sun, nights meant ghost stories and campfires. Best of all, Whispering Pines meant time with Celia, her favorite aunt. Through the years, Celia would remain Renee's most steadfast confidant, but trips to Whispering Pines would fade to memories. Raising kids alone and a demanding career consumed Renee's life.
Now Celia is gone and Renee suddenly finds her twenty year career in shambles. Promising herself she will look for a new job in January, Renee is determined to make the most of her unexpected time off. But when mysterious events begin to swirl around her kids, her worries compound.
A spontaneous trip, meant to relieve the growing pressures and soothe Renee's battered pride, could turn out to be so much more when she finds herself alone on a moonlit beach, half-a-world away, with a handsome stranger.
How can Renee keep her family safe as she works to rebuild their lives? Does she dare take another chance at love?
Celia's final gift may provide answers, but there are risks. Renee wishes she could seek comfort and advice from her dear aunt, but Celia's recent death has left a void. Why can't things be simple, the way they were when she spent summers at Whispering Pines?
Whispering Pines, the first book in Kimberly Diede's uplifting Celia's Gifts series, will introduce you to a special place and a remarkable family.
Discover how Celia's legacy can live on if her family is willing to seize the opportunities she leaves to each of them
