Ristretto Rain: So Close, I Can Smell the Ink

Ristretto Rain goes to the presses next week and will be available in bookstores soon after. Here is a blurb:

Halem, one of Seattle’s finest coffee roasters and baristas, comes to a gorgeous but remote harbor in Washington’s San Juan Islands to escape her dark past. One day, a mysterious and handsome man comes rowing into the village from somewhere out in the Pacific. He has the uncanny ability to peer directly into the villagers’ souls, putting his finger on their greatest secrets. Is he Halem’s savior who can lead her out of her own emotional labyrinth or just a swindler? Will she find her life’s greatest love fulfilled in him or her greatest heartache?
