Before binge watching greeting card movies, start the holiday season with USA Today Bestselling Contemporary Romance Author, Annie Rains at the Western Carteret Library Annex, Saturday, November 9, from noon-2 pm.

This is the last Second Saturday Author Series fundraising event, presented by the Friends of the Western Carteret Library in a conversational format with Annie Rains. Noted for her gentle humor and soft-spoken, sweet nature, Annie is a pleasure to be around and her writing reflects it. Ms. Rains will discuss her writing life, her publishing journey, and her latest novels in the Sweetwater Springs series.

Annie Rains writes “Heartfelt stories of home, hope, and happily ever afters,” set in fictious coastal and mountainous North Carolina towns.

Her writing is crisp, her characters are three dimensional, and the scenery is picture perfect. Expect twists and unexpected things to happen, but as romances go, with a satisfactory ending.

Living in the Marine Corps community of Jacksonville, Annie Rains military heroes were found in her first published series, Hero’s Welcome, four eBook novels with characters that not only fight for their country but also for a place to call home with a woman to love. These will be rereleased in print form in 2020.

Annie Rains’ second series, Blushing Bay, has two novels and two novellas, also offered in eBook format.

The Forever imprint book Sweetwater Springs series includes three novels, Christmas on Mistletoe Lane, Springtime at Hope Cottage, and Snowfall on Cedar Trail (released last month), a short story, a novella, and the fourth novel, Starting over at Blueberry Creek, will be released in February, 2020. Each are set in the fictional mountain valley town of Sweetwater Springs, N.C.

Annie Rains says Sweetwater Springs, has what most small towns have including single men and women that aren’t looking for love, but find it anyway.

Christmas on Mistletoe Lane recently made the top 25 Christmas Book List by Fiction Obsessed, the online book review site, visit
