The Writer’s Nook Presents:

Hi everybody and welcome to The Writer’s Nook. This is going to be the first post here. Actually, I posed this earlier but I wanted to repost it and put it in its proper place. But trust me, its worth another look.

Are you looking for a really good story to read? Well, I have got one for you. I just finished reading WHEN CLOUDS GATHER by Ryan Jo Summers. This mystery romance is an amazing story with loveable characters, believeable, true life situations, and several twists and turns that will continue to snag your attention. In this post, I have included a few details about the book that will be guarenteed to make your mouth water but for full satisfaction, you’ll have to go buy the book. At the bottom of this post are some links to check out to purchase this very interesting story. Enjoy!

WHEN CLOUDS GATHER is a romantic suspense and it tells the story of Darby Adams, a single mother who runs a very sucessful bread and breakfast in the coastal town of Driftwood Shores. Her life is a busy one-running a business, taking in and fostering the small town’s unwanted animals, and caring for her teenage son, Matt. Things seem to be going well until one of her guests turns up dead and Darby becomes suspect number one.

Sam Golden is a private investigator and is new to the town of Driftwood Shores. He too is a single parent and struggling to raise his rebelious teenage daughter, Madison. Sam is hired by the murdered victims family to collect Darby and put her behind bars. But he is not all that convinced that the beautiful, single mother is capable of cold blooded murder.

As Sam begins to get to know Darby better, he becomes convinced of her innocence. But believing it and proving it are two different things.  Suddenly, Darby and Sam are thrust right in the middle of strange and terrifing situatuions that not only endanger them, and their new, struggling love, but also the very lives of their children.  Darby and Sam have to fight side by side to save their kids from someone intent on keeping the truth buried.


“So tell me about the real Sam Golden,” she asked as he sat down on the sofa, taking her with him and wrapping his arms around her waist. His amused chuckle sounded soft against her ear. Leaning her head back and closing her heavy eyes, she listened to the steadily beating rhythm of his heart. It sounded so . . .reassuring. The kids handled the news well as she presented it to them together. She bit her tongue as she assured them the police were looking into it, assured them she and Sam were unharmed and apologized for the party ending early. Now, that behind her, and the house put right again, she wanted her own reassurances—from Sam. “What do you want to know? I though you already knew me like a book.” His voice made a rumbling growl next to her ear, making her smile. She could happily listen to his rumbling voice and beating heart all day. A sense of peace settled over her, washing away the concerns of the past hours and the aches from cleaning the house. “Hardly. I don’t know half as much about you as you seem to know about me,” she protested. “I want to know everything about you. Like, for instance, what’s your middle name?” “My middle name?” he echoed. “Okay, it’s Jonathan. I’m the youngest son of Ben and Tamara Golden. I have two sisters, Rebecca and Susanna. My brother is Aaron.” “Samuel Jonathan Golden,” she tried the name slowly, liking how noble it sounded. She could have asked him questions all night if she hadn’t drifted off to sleep just then.
