A New Adult Series Begins in Door County, Wisconsin.

Welcome to Orchard Bay. 


Introducing Novel Number One in the Orchard Bay Series.

The Stonegarden

From Bestselling Author Kathy-jo Wargin comes a story about second chances.

It all started when...

Daisy Tate left Chicago under less than perfect circumstances, moving quickly to Door County, Wisconsin in a brave effort to rebuild her life. On the other side of the peninsula, he’s been building a fence out of stones, each one pulled from the land and wedged into the chambers of a long-held sorrow. While searching for second chances, a bitter secret sends them both to a stone-laden shore along Lake Michigan, but for very different reasons. 



The Orchard Bay Novels are set in Door County, Wisconsin. Amidst the backdrop of the peninsula, the stories take you through vintage streetscapes and charming harbor towns, sweeping orchards and dark, quiet places nestled between pockets of twisting cedar and craggy, shoreline cliffs.

The Stonegarden is Book Number One in this series.
