Here are blurbs for my books:

Angels in Seashore Cove (Love and Laugh in Seashore Cove Book Two)

Back in college, Dianna Sheldon made a pledge to the Saving It Sisters, promising to save herself for “The One.” As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Dianna decides to break that pledge before she reaches the milestone. But she discovers that attempting to break a promise is not as easy as it seems, especially with her best friend, Sean, blocking her every step of the way. Sean Donovan has always been a wild child, but Dianna managed to keep him grounded. When she tells him she wants to lose her virginity, he makes it his mission to stop her from making a huge mistake. Adriel, Dianna and Sean's guardian angel, can't stand by and watch them head down a path that will lead them away from each other—and their "happily ever after." So he enlists the help of the archangel Jude, and together they come up with a plan to save these two souls. They send down two rookies to nudge Dianna and Sean onto the right path and, with any luck, right a sixteen-year-old wrong.

Crazy Little Thing Called Matchmaking Reviews

"Such a great book! Funny and witty and very entertaining. Stayed up to 4 am just so I could get more of this story!
The characters were very realistic with flaws and doubts and feelings. I laughed and cried and had incredible fun. Thank you Maggie Van Well for a wonderful story!"

"Well written and a keeper. Loved the way the book started off running headlong into romance with humorous dialogue and characters that melt your heart. Going on my keeper shelf."


Marry Poppins with a Contemporary Twist Meets Ghost Hunters

Emma Hopkins is jubilant when her chimney and fireplace restoration company lands a huge job at a nineteenth century Brooklyn Heights brownstone. As a female chimney sweep, this is a major coup. That is until she meets the general contractor, Ryan Atkinson. 

Commanding and sexy, Ryan knows Emma is trouble. This becomes clear when Emma breaks through a bricked-up fireplace and releases more than just stale air. She frees a benevolent spirit that wants to help Emma find happiness.

Unbeknownst to our clueless contractors, there is another spirit in the house. This spirit is not a Casper wannabe, but downright ticked off Emma released the trapped spirit from the fireplace. What ensues is a battle of ghostly wits, a century old mystery and a growing love between Emma and Ryan that refuses to be ignored.    

Ruby's Letters Reviews

"When I started reading I could not put it down and I was up until the early hours reading so I could finish it. This story combines several genres including a contemporary romance, mystery, suspense and a story of good verses bad." - Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock

"Ruby’s Letters delivers a little of everything: intriguing storyline, a dash of romance, a mystery, and ghosts! Because it’s the way I roll, I think I liked the murder/mystery/ghosts the best while reading, but it was so fun to follow along and try to figure everything out – including how the ending would come about. What I also really enjoyed was the humor breathed throughout the pages. A truly fun novel to read, and I highly recommend!" - Chick Lit Plus

She wants his genes. He wants her.

When midwife, Kayla Morgan, turns thirty-five she hears her biological clock ticking louder than a two dollar Timex. She decides to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother. There is a slight snag; however. She is newly divorced and has no desire to take the marriage path again. What’s a gal to do? Why, ask her childhood friend, Chase McBride, to help her, of course. No intimacy, no strings, and with today’s technology, the Wall Street tycoon can be vacationing in Maui when she conceives.

It sounds simple, except for one thing. Chase, who has harbored a secret love for Kayla for years, sees an opportunity he can’t pass up. If there was ever a way to get Kayla to see him as a man and not the boy she grew up with, this is it. He just hopes he doesn’t wind up losing her in the process.

The Chase is On Reviews

"The Chase is On is an emotional journey of finding one’s self as well as discovering what you truly want in life. Becoming a mature adult is about big, sometimes hard decisions, and more than just the main characters grow up in The Chase is On. And in the end, the romance rings true as well!" - Sizzling Hot Books

"This is what I term a feel good read! The progress for the two from friends to lovers captured my attention. The twist in this read was HIGHLY unexpected! It left my ticked off, shocked, and lastly in awe that Van Well bested me! How dare she! LOL! Seriously, the twist made the read all the more better and I can not wait to grab another work from Maggie Van Well!" ~ Shameless Romance Reviews
