If you’ve been with us through books 1 and 2 of the Bailey Devlin series, by now you love Bailey, want to shake some sense into her, or both.
In this last of the three book series, Bailey’s ship comes in . . . in more ways than one.
You might think she married Jeffery. After all, he helped care for her grandpa, loves her nuttiness, took her home to meet his parents, threw a wonderful party for her, and proposed in front of both their families. So who else but Jeffery, right?
We’re talking about Bailey, remember? Nothing ever goes according to plan. Horoscopes can be misleading, pennies aren’t always lucky, and love can sometimes sail away.
In book 3, The Day Bailey Devlin’s Ship Came In, Bailey realizes that her heart might belong to someone else: Ethan, her musician neighbor. Problem is, Ethan doesn’t live here anymore. He’s traveling on cruise ships with his band. Bailey can’t bring herself to marry Jeffery until she’s absolutely sure which of two she truly loves. So, she makes a Bailey Devlin decision. She tracks Ethan down and boards the ship where he is currently employed.
Complications arise when Bailey discovers she’s on a Single’s cruise and has to keep dodging the same guy. Confusion jumps on board when she sees Ethan with a woman, assumes he has a girlfriend, and convinces herself that her chances with Ethan have sunk. She spends the rest of the cruise trying to avoid Ethan . . . until she sees “his” girl with another man.
Worried about Bailey; Jeffery, Grandpa, Bailey’s boss, and his flirty daughter arrive on the ship.
Determined to warn Ethan and rescue him from the woman’s clutches, Bailey goes overboard . . . literally, and has to be rescued by none other than . . . .
To find out which of the two her heart belongs to, you’ll have to read, The Day Bailey Devlin’s Ship Came In.
If you haven’t yet read any of the books, you’re depriving yourself of fun, laughter, and warmth. A modern day I Love Lucy, and with a motely cast of characters and situations that rival a Seinfeld episode, Bailey’s a riot!

She’s done it again! In her new cozy mystery, Five Belles Too Many, Debra H. Goldstein once again shows her mastery at creating a tangle of secret lives and ambitious hearts where she hides the killer in plain sight within the story. And though we meticulously follow the clues she scatters for us, we’re always thrown for a loop because the killer is never who we think.
March was World Poetry Day, and April was National Poetry month. During a recent webinar sponsored by the Highlights Foundation, the authors Margarita Engle and Padma Venkatraman expressed the following thoughts:
This month, I’d like to share with you a few of the books that have moved, inspired, and touched my life. They are the voices of fellow-women across the globe; sisters, friends, women.
Picture books, that welcoming world of imagery and words that capture the heart and the imagination. And most wonderful of all, when the story is true and reveals a hidden gem.
“Books can’t be used as weapons. They can’t fill a hungry stomach or quench thirst. They can’t cure illnesses, loneliness or prejudice.”
Or can they?
