The Happy Hammock releases second book!


Fans of the delightful book, The Happy Hammock, have been clamoring for the continuing story. And book two is finally here!

The Happy Hammock Adventure Continues…

Kathrin and John have a 3-D rendering of their dream casa they want to build on their property in the town of Libé, Mexico. Trouble is…they have no way to pay for it.

Kathrin tries everything—short of a bank heist—to secure the funds until a twist of fate intervenes. Once the money has been found, a new host of problems ensue. What is it to be the “boss lady” to a Mexican building crew? How do you furnish a casa with a color-obsessed friend while avoiding a taboo topic from the past? What do you do when a real disaster strikes? Can her marriage survive all these stresses?

Secrets are uncovered, crimes are committed, and love is challenged in the continuing saga of The Happy Hammock.

I loved the first book and I wasn’t sure how much I’d like this one. You know – sequels, right? I was pleasantly surprised. It’s good, it’s very good. It’s entertaining and kept me in the story from the first few pages. I got caught up with the progress of the couple and truly did not know how it would turn out. The characters are believable and flawed, the scenery is spectacular, and the writing is strong. A great escapism read
