The tragic death of Shelby Dodson’s husband—her partner in a successful Home Network house flipping business in the quaint river town of Augusta, Georgia—stole security, status, and career. Now, if Shelby doesn’t rally, her interior design competitors will edge her out of the market! When she agrees to redesign a 1920s bungalow for a charming retired couple, she’s forced to work with a new contractor—the polar opposite of her late husband.


Scott Matthews remembers high-and-mighty Shelby from high school, and her contemporary style chafes his down-to-earth grain. He has no intention of letting Shelby use him for her come-back. And Shelby can’t possibly develop feelings for a guy who challenges her in so many unfamiliar ways. When the house reveals a forty-year-old mystery, will its dark secrets—and Scott’s and Shelby’s own mistakes—cost a second chance at love?

Available through Kindle only, $2.99: Denise's first novella, Redeeming Grace


Searching for something she cannot define and breaking under the stress as a rising star at The Metropolitan Opera, Grace Galveston travels to Tallulah Falls, Georgia, for a reprieve. In the summer of 1886, Tallulah Gorge, with its multiple waterfalls, spectacular mountain scenery, and lavish resort hotels, was already known as “The Niagara of the South.” Even amid the crowds and excitement surrounding the attempt of an aerialist to cross the chasm on a high wire, Grace hopes to find peace. Unexpectedly, though, the trip sheds light on the secret pain in her heart. Can the blessing of friendship and the possibility of love with a local minister guide her toward healing? Or will their differences and the call of her life back in New York mean even greater heartbreak?
