Stories of Second Chances

Come, venture into Kate’s fictional world. No secrets hidden under her rugs, nor neglected childhood passions stilting her characters’ growth, nor feuds splitting families down to their very foundations.

Or are there?

My second book in the Lancaster Discovery Series, Starting From Scratch, is available for pre-order from Amazon.  Release date is April 3, 2018.

And much as I love writing, I also adore interacting with my readers and I’m thoroughly entertained with your comments. So keep in touch whether through my blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or Goodreads.

“From the whirlwind beginning to the delightfully unexpected ending, Starting from Scratch is an adventurous tale of life as you rarely see it.”
Naomi Miller, author of the Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series

“In Starting from Scratch, Kate Lloyd creates a delightful cast of characters with flaws to which we can all relate. This is a story rich with details from the Lancaster County Amish countryside. You’ll want to keep turning the pages through the twists and turns to discover if Eva makes the right choices in love and faith.”
Kelly Irvin, author of the Amish of Bee County series
