Tales From the Laundry Pile by Kathleen Kole

Claire Jamieson has moved back home to Boxwood Hills... And, she's not alone. Trailing behind her overworked laundry basket is her husband and their energetic twin boys.

Claire had always thought that once she'd left the nest, she'd never return. Now that she has, she's wondering what type of bird that makes her... Cuckoo?

When she has a moment to pause and catch her breath, she'll let you know.

Tales from the Laundry Pile, an engaging, thoughtful story of motherhood, family tangles, new friendships and self-discovery.

The Boxwood Hills novels take place in the same picturesque mountain town, they have been written to stand alone; each story one in a set of many. That being said, don’t be surprised to see characters you recognize from other books within each other’s tale. They love to make cameos. Welcome to Boxwood Hills!

  3. I love the sound of the plot and am delighted to find that there are more books by this author who is new to me. Hi, Kathleen! I’m so glad I found you and cannot wait to read your novels. Congratulations on your successes!

    1. Thank YOU so much, Connie, for your lovely words! You made my day and inspire me to keep on doing what I'm doing. :-)

  4. Can't wait to read this! Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Thank you all for your enthusiasm! And thanks to you, Samantha, for being such a terrific host! xxx

  6. Kathleen...You're a "new to me" author. Are your books set in Canada or somewhere else?

    1. Catherine: When I created the fictional town of Boxwood Hills (the setting for Dollars to Donuts, Favorable Conditions, Tales from the Laundry Pile and still more stories to come) I didn't have a set-in-stone local. I love the idea that Boxwood Hills could be in numerous places in North America (Oregon, Colorado, British Columbia, etc.) and what mattered to me most was that you, the reader, could sink into the lives of the characters who live there and enjoy their stories.

      Thanks so much for a great question!

  7. Oh my gosh, Kathleen! I do hope that I am the “Connie” that won your gift card! Wow! That’s fabulous. Thank you ever so much.
