What authors say about The Willow Falls Series:

The Secret of Willow Inn by Pat Nichols, captivated me from the first page and held me rapt far into the night until I finished it. I couldn’t put it down! A story of longing, heart wrenching sorrow, forgiveness and restoration, all set in a small town you will love.” Ane Mulligan, bestselling author of the Chapel Springs series

“Pat Nichols’ debut will appeal to fans who love cozy mysteries wrapped in small town quirkiness and accented with big city lights. A sweet, funny read for anyone who has ever dared to dream a crazy dream.”
Lindsey Brackett, author of Still Waters, 2018 Selah Book of the Year

“It takes a really good book to let me be a reader again, and The Secret of Willow Inn did. It lifted my spirits. I loved it!”  Haywood Smith, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

“The small town of Willow Falls in the North Georgia mountains is faltering. Yet three strong women–virtual strangers to one other–are drawn to save it through the development of a winery and an inn. Unbeknownst to them, their lives are inextricably linked through secrets that when disclosed will blow the reader away. I fell in love with this charming town and its wonderful citizens and cannot wait for author, Pat Nichols, to invite us to spend more time in Willow Falls with sequel after sequel.” Sherri Stewart, author of Sleeping through Christmas. 

Small towns can be the scene of big dreams, high drama and unforgettable romance, and this is certainly the case in Willow Falls, Georgia. In Book 2 of her Willows Fall series, author Pat Nichols takes us deeper into the lives of twin sisters Emily and Rachel—into their individual journeys as they seek the fulfillment of their dreams, and the hurdles they must overcome along with way. Filled with colorful characters and unexpected turns, The Trouble in Willow Falls is one story you won’t want to miss. Ann Tatlock, novelist, editor and children’s book author

Pat Nichols weaves a story with characters who dig deep into your soul. Willow Falls catches on the wind and brushes through your heart. –  Cindy K. Sproles, author of Mercy’s Rain and Liar’s Winter

“Whether you’re a new reader or one returning to Willow Falls, the sweet essence of small-town Georgia will embrace you like an old sweater in Pat Nichols’ heart-tugging series newest edition. Willow Falls is just the sort of cozy escape we’re all looking for these days!” Denise Weimer, Managing Editor, LPC historical imprints and multi-published author

Star Struck in Willow Falls is the third book of the Willow Falls series by Pat Nichols. Willow Falls, Georgia, already held me captive with its mix of winsome personalities. Throw a few quirky ones into the bunch, like local mail carrier, Mirabelle Paine, aptly named. Add a cast of characters straight from the silver screens of Hollywood, and you have the perfect combination for dramatic antics, some on-screen and some off. The plot twists are so skillfully woven, you’ll be begging for more when you reach The End.  Another winner. Debra DuPree Williams Author, Grave Consequences, A Charlotte Graves Mystery
