The Year After: Now Available in Paperback and Kindle Edition!

AdrianneNoel_TheYearAfter200I am pleased to announce that The Year After is now available on Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle edition. The novel is a small-town family drama with heavy doses of romance and comedy. Although the book is categorized as women’s fiction, it will also appeal to lovers of romance and chick-lit. I will be blogging about the inspiration behind the story, the book’s launch, and my next project. But for now, here is a synopsis:

After her overbearing mother’s sudden death, young English professor Maddie finds her world turned upside down when she leaves New York City for her family’s home in the Colorado mountains. She plans to stay only a few weeks, but, then again, she never expects to find her father posting his profile on singles websites or her sister planning a wedding worthy of a bridal magazine.

When a childhood friend shows up to her boozy thirtieth birthday party and looks at her in a way he never did in high school, Maddie jumps at the chance for a love of her own. But when her new boyfriend turns into a rogue worthy of a Victorian novel, Maddie finds consolation in her friendship with the maverick sculptor Jackson. She determines not to fall for him, even though her eccentric aunts remind her that she’s the only one not getting married.

As Maddie adopts the unlikely role of maid-of-honor to both her sister and soon-to-be stepmother, she discovers that she still lives under her mother’s shadow. Only by confronting the past and her mother’s memory can she embrace love and the family she’s always wanted.

The novel is now listed on Goodreads and Shelfari. If you read the book and enjoy it, please consider posting a short review on either Amazon or Goodreads. This will help other potential readers decide if the story will interest them.

And stay tuned for more information about the book, and my current work-in-progress . . .
