New Year, New Books by Patricia Forsythe

Hello Sweet Romance Readers,
It is a pleasure and an honor to be welcomed back to the Sweet Romance Reads group.  2016 was a very hard year for many of us, and I hope you are all looking forward to a happy and prosperous 2017.  I’m happy to say that I have three books completed in my Oklahoma Girls series for Harlequin Heartwarming.  

At Odds With the Midwife was released in November 2016 and The Husband She Can't Forget will be a February 2017 release, available in a few days.  His Twin Baby Surprise will be released in May 2017.


Writing this series was fun because I got to create Gemma, Carly, and Lisa, three lifelong best friends who always have each other’s backs.  I also enjoyed creating Nathan, Luke, and Ben, the men who love and challenge them.  Setting the books in Oklahoma gave me an opportunity to visit family there as I did research for the stories and developed the town of Reston and the sometimes quirky people who live there. 
Most of my books have been set in Arizona where I was born and raised, and where I've lived most of my life.  I have ideas for a new series of books, but haven't decided on a state or community in which to set them.  I welcome any suggestions. 
Warmest thoughts for a happy new year.


  1. Patricia, I'm drawn to small town stories. I think it's the tightknit feel of community where everyone knows everyone and comes together to support each other when there's a need.

    1. That's what I like, too, Mary. I grew up in a small town, so they have a warm place in my heart.

  2. Patricia,
    I'm from a small town, and small towns are the best! And your stories sounds wonderful.
