Meet author, Pat Nichols

The award-winning Willow Falls Series follows the lives of three women. Strangers brought together in The Secret of Willow Inn by tragedy, a long-held secret, and one man’s dream to plant a vineyard and build a winery. Emily Hayes, a reporter for the local paper was raised in Willow Falls. As an aspiring author, she longs to write a novel about the town’s unique history to attract tourists and save Willow Falls from a slow painful death. Sadie Liles returns after serving a thirty-year prison term for killing the town hero. Rachel Streetman, raised in Atlanta, abandons her acting dream to work for her father’s real estate development firm and live the life he chooses for her. Until she meets Charlie Bricker and discovers the shocking secret.

The women’s relationships with each other and the town’s quirky residents evolve in The Trouble in Willow Falls. Rachel and Emily face new stumbling blocks in the pursuit of their dreams while five newcomers complicate residents’ struggles to overcome obstacles and transform their town into a tourist destination. One charming stranger with an exaggerated British accent claims he’s a writer needing a quiet location to create his latest novel. Sadie questions his motivation to pay cash for a five-month stay at Willow Inn.

In Starstruck in Willow Falls a Hollywood film crew and three famous actors swoop in to shoot a full-length motion picture. They disrupt the town’s new normal as a popular tourist spot and transform residents into groupies, stage mothers, and wannabe movie stars. The chaos upstages Emily’s debut as a published author. Weeks away from marrying Charlie Bricker, the manager of the town’s new winery, Rachel questions if auditioning for a role in the movie will boost her lackluster acting career or open the door to a lifestyle incompatible with the small-town life she has come to accept. Adding to the turmoil, an unexpected visitor threatens Sadie’s future and triggers citizen action.
