A young librarian and an old curmudgeon forge the unlikeliest of friendships in this charming, feel-good novel about one misfit book club and the lives (and loves) it changed along the way.

Sloane Parker lives a small, contained life as a librarian in her small, contained town. She never thinks of herself as lonely…but still she looks forward to that time every day when old curmudgeon Arthur McLachlan comes to browse the shelves and cheerfully insult her. Their sparring is such a highlight of Sloane's day that when Arthur doesn't show up one morning, she's instantly concerned. And then another day passes, and another.

Anxious, Sloane tracks the old man down only to discover him all but bedridden...and desperately struggling to hide how happy he is to see her. Wanting to bring more cheer into Arthur's gloomy life, Sloane creates an impromptu book club. Slowly, the lonely misfits of their sleepy town begin to find each other, and in their book club, find the joy of unlikely friendship. Because as it turns out, everyone has a special book in their heart―and a reason to get lost (and eventually found) within the pages.

Books have a way of bringing even the loneliest of souls together...

"A fun, sweet read."

One Author, Three Pennames

Hello and welcome! If you’re visiting this website, it’s because you’re interested in Tamara Morgan, Tamara Berry, or Lucy Gilmore.

Good news! They’re all me.

I began my writing career in 2012 as romance author Tamara Morgan. Since that time, I’ve expanded to include cozy mysteries (Tamara Berry) and uplifting comedies (Lucy Gilmore). No matter what you’re here for, my books are fun, lighthearted, and always come with a guaranteed HEA.

I graduated from Eastern Washington University with an English degree, where I learned about Very Important Literature and also that I vastly prefer to read about love and murder. I live in Washington state with my family and far more pets than any of us need.
