Faith, Fiction, & Coffee – these three things are at the very center of what helps me function each day.
Faith – my firm belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and came to this world to bridge the gap between God and man is not just part of something I do. I live it to the best of my ability. “This is more than a Sunday thing.”
Fiction – I love fiction. I’ll read almost any novel if I have time. That’s why I chose to write fiction over non-fiction. When I found other authors drop biblical truths in the middle of a story to minister to the reader in such an unassuming way, I said, “I want to be part of that.” So, here I am, sharing the heart of Christ through works of fiction.
And last, but not least…
COFFEE – I’m human, not a saint. Everyone needs something to give them that morning boost to catapult them into the day.
So, if you’ve read this far, thank you for letting me into your time and hearing the heart of this crazy author.
I appreciate you. Be blessed.

Why do weddings do their best to ruin relationships? Friends, family—even the couple!
Beth Stevens didn’t come to the Independence Islands to find a guy, but thanks to her beloved Gram, she had a place to go and the skills to start a business she loves. Meeting Scott again and getting engaged was a bonus she only dreamed of.
Now, in the final weeks before their Christmas Eve wedding, she can’t imagine not having him in her life. They have endured one hurdle after another in their two-year relationship and have remained devoted through it all.
And then months of wedding planning begins to fall apart as one person continues to undermine Beth’s choices.
Scott has waited for this day to come but as he witnesses Beth unravel, he does everything he knows to do to protect and stand by her.
The question is, will things ever come together enough to get them both to the altar before it’s too late?
This Breakers Head novel is Melissa Wardwell’s final novel in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
