The Scotts & Laynes are the stars of the It Happened Series – sweet romances set in picturesque Canadian locations.
You met Roger Scott; his son, Adam, and Serenity Layne in the first book of the It Happened Series – It Happened on DufferinTerrace, a Christmas novella set in Quebec City.
Here’s what Book 1 is about…
Miracle on 34th Street meets Sleepless in Seattle
Toronto business consultant, Serenity Layne, knew the only person she could depend on was herself. Married to her career, she has no time for other pursuits and life’s intangibles.
Widowed for three years, Roger Scott, a data security specialist in Quebec City, is a single parent to his ten-year-old son, Adam.
On a day out on the Plains of Abraham with their black Labrador retriever, Roger’s cell phone rings incessantly. Adam has played matchmaker and put his father’s profile on a number of online dating sites.
The week before Christmas, Serenity is heading up a series of meetings after a six-month study of the Canadian retail chain, jonathans. After an unpleasant encounter with one of the store managers, she escapes from the boardroom of the Château Frontenac Hotel, only to be bowled over by Roger and Adam’s dog.
Guilty over the accident, Roger invites Serenity out for a drink by way of apology. Over the course of the week, and spending time together, feelings long dormant for Roger are re-awakened. At the same time, emotions foreign to Serenity fill her with contentment and happiness.
Will the couple get their happily ever after?
In It Happened on Dufferin Terrace, readers were also introduced to Roger’s younger sister Melissa and her beau Gareth, along with the matriarch of the Scott family.
At the end of the book, Serenity’s brother Erik made a cameo appearance.
What about the rest of the Scotts & Laynes? All of the siblings (some mentioned by name only in Book 1) and their partners will have books of their own.
Here they are in no particular order…
Christopher Scott & Lori Brownlee in It Happened at Lake Louise.
Erik Layne & Hilary Dunbar in It Happened in Gastown.
Michael Scott & Jennifer Fox in It Happened at Niagara Falls.
Melissa Scott & Gareth Young in It Happened at Percé Rock
Amy Scott & Kyle Ferris in It Happened … at an as yet undetermined location.
