Sara needs to escape and a seaside town in Australia seems like the perfect place. When she finds a lost Beagle on the beach, she also finds herself meeting hunky TV veterinarian, Dr Craig Murray. She vowed that she would never date a celebrity again – she’s been burnt too badly before – but now she’s beginning to wonder if she could risk another chance at love?

Craig can’t get the beautiful American out of his mind. They may come from different cultures – and even speak different “English” sometimes – but he knows they can have a future together. Can he convince Sara that this is more than just a vacation fling?

Ellie Monroe doesn’t make mistakes. At least, she hasn’t made one yet in her climb up the career ladder and she isn’t about to start now that she’s landed a dream job in a beautiful Australian seaside town on the other side of the Pacific.

But when a mischievous chocolate Lab turns her life upside-down, Ellie finds herself meeting handsome veterinarian, Dr. Dan O’Brien, and wanting to throw caution to the winds for the first time in her life…

Dan has never met a woman quite like Ellie before. The workaholic American is sexy, stubborn, uptight, exasperating—and absolutely fascinating. Australians are famous for their relaxed attitude to life—but can Dan convince Ellie that sometimes you need to make mistakes to open your heart to love?

Fresh from a painful break-up, Matt is very wary of giving his heart again but there’s something about Pippa that completely captivates him. When his past catches up with him, Matt is forced to make a choice between playing it safe and taking a gamble on love once more…

      Thank you so much, Becki, for your lovely comment! So pleased you’re enjoying my Summer Beach Vets series – and looking forward to more! 🙂 Yes, I’m really excited about the offshoot series next year – they will be full novels so will give me more chance to explore subplots and secondary characters, plus include all the extra ideas I had for Summer Beach which I didn’t get a chance to put in the novellas.

      Thank you for your lovely comment, Carole! Sorry for my delay in replying – it’s Children’s Book Week here in Australia and I’ve been having a hectic time preparing my author talk and then visiting schools & libraries… but I really appreciated you taking the time to leave me a note. And I’m so pleased you enjoyed my series! 🙂

    These books are the perfect read for a beach vacation! (Which is where I read the first one, in Cuba)

    Enjoyed the “Summer Beach Vets” series. I hope there are future books for the series

      Thank you for your comment, Joann – so pleased you enjoyed the Summer Beach Vets series! I will actually be moving more into cozy mysteries in the future and am currently focusing on my new series, the Oxford Tearoom Mysteries, so I’m afraid there are no plans to add further books to the Summer Beach series at this point.

      But perhaps you might like to check out my new series – it is also a sweet, clean read – lighter on the romance, of course, but lots of humour, memorable characters, a gripping storyline – and a very cute little cat! 🙂 All set in the quaint, historic university city of Oxford.

      Thanks again for your interest in my books and for taking the time to stop by & write to me! 🙂

    Thank you so much for writing these books. I discovered the series with the Christmas edition. I am on the last one and have bought them all. I am leaving next week for an 11 day Australia vacation and the books are getting me for psyched to go! Summer Beach is a fictional place is it not? What Inspired tou to write these books? Are you done with the series? Thanks again!

    Christin from the US.

      Hi Christin – thanks so much for your lovely comment! (and sorry for my late reply!) – I’m so pleased you enjoyed my series. And what perfect timing right before your Australia vacation! Will you be doing just the East Coast or a bit of the Centre and West Coast as well?

      Yes, Summer Beach is a completely fictional place – but I lived for a while along the NSW coast and it’s partly inspired by the coastal towns I’ve visited/lived in there. My original inspiration came because I wanted to write a series set in a beautiful seaside town, around a vet hospital and featuring a romance for each of the vets… and guest-starring a cute dog or cat in each story. I’m a pet lover myself and I thought other pet lovers would enjoy a sweet romance series in that setting. It would also be a chance for me to share a bit about Australia for those who might not have had or get the chance to visit – a bit of escapism from their armchair! 😉

      I’m so happy to hear that you’ve enjoyed the setting of the series and will be exploring it in person soon! Wishing you a great time on your vacation!!

      Best wishes,
      Hsin-Yi
