USA Today Bestselling author Kathi Daley brings you a heartwarming mystery series about finding answers and fostering hope while building friendships and embracing the magic of life by the sea and small town holidays.

Ainsley Holloway had come to Gooseberry Bay to find answers about her past. She’d come to find an explanation for the dreams that haunted her after the death of the cop who’d both rescued and raised her. And she’d come to identify the family she couldn’t remember but knew in her heart she’d once belonged to.

Ainsley hoped that by finding these answers, she’d also find healing. She hoped that once she’d resurrected the memories buried deep in her mind, she’d find peace.

The Cottage at Gooseberry Bay is a series about, not only finding answers, but finding hope.

It’s a series about family and friendship.

It’s a series about shared holidays, festivals, and celebrations.

It’s a series about shared heartbreak and hardship.

And it’s a series about the bond that can be forged amongst strangers when tragedy binds two or more individuals with a common goal.

In book 4 in the series, four friends come to the area over Valentine’s Day. While in Gooseberry Bay they notice a kissing booth which gets them to joking around and they decide to come up with their own challenge - The Casanova Challenge - to prove once and for all which of the four is really the king of romance. Each of four the men agree to spend the weekend wooing the local women, raking up points for various acts such as, buying a woman a drink, getting a cell number, actually going on a date, engaging in a make out session, and actually scoring. One of the men apparently set his sights on the wrong woman since he ends up dead. Parker sets out to cover the story pulling Ainsley and the others into her investigation along the way.

Meanwhile Ainsley picks up some new information on the mystery she came into town to solve in the first place and the return of an old friend to the area seems to cause friction between Jemma and Josie.

In book 5 in the series, Ainsley's PI business is really taking off after her recent successes. She's busier than she ever hoped to be but when a young woman shows up in town with a charm bracelet and a story to tell, Ainsley finds herself agreeing to a bit of pro bono work. It seems the woman had been left in a church as a baby. The only item found with her that might point to a clue about her past is a charm bracelet. After the death of her adoptive mother the woman decides to look for her birth mother. One of the charms leads her to Gooseberry Bay where she hopes the other charms on the bracelet will lead to the answers she's after.

In book 6 in the series, Ainsley's PI business is really taking off after her recent successes and she's busier than ever tracking down the people her clients are looking for including a father without a name and a social influencer who seems to have disappeared without a trace. When she isn't juggling multiple cases, she's continuing to look into her own murky past in the hope of finding the sister she never knew she had.
