In Between (A Katie Parker Production Book 1)
Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head…and heart. When Katie and her new “wrong crowd” get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she’s not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she’ll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.


The Potluck Club (The Potluck Club Book #1): A Novel
In the small Colorado town of Summit View, a surprising multi-generational mix of women from Grace Church meet once a week to pass a hot dish and to pray. But the Potluck Club, as they call themselves, is a recipe for disaster when they send up enough misinformed prayers to bring down a church. And the funny thing: the more they pray, the more troubles seem to come their way. It isn’t until they invite God to the table that they discover friendship is the spice of life, and a little dash of grace, just like salt, goes a long way.


Hearts Awakening (Hearts Along the River Book #1)
With no means to support herself, Ellie Kilmer agrees to work as a housekeeper for the young widower who lives on Dillon Island, hopeful she can obtain a proper reference. But Jackson Smith quickly realizes that Ellie’s presence may solve his own problems–both the rearing of his young boys and the scandal that surrounds his first marriage. When a marriage of convenience is offered, Ellie is initially humiliated. Though she is past the age most women marry, she has more pride than to agree to his outlandish suggestion. Yet what options does she have? To marry would mean a home and stability. So despite the rumors circling Jackson and his first wife, Ellie accepts this unlikely proposal…

Bailey Vegetables and Pumpkin Patch

There is no fee to enter the Bailey Vegetables and Pumpkin Patch park, you may walk around and enjoy any part of the working farm! Parking is along a service road on the farm and runs parallel to the street. There are portable toilets on the farm, one near the pumpkin patch a couple near the barn. There is a small food and drink counter with a limited snack menu, and homemade kettle corn is made all day outside the barn.

The farm appeals to all ages of kids. There is a barn ($5 a child) with swings and play area for younger children, a large corn maze ($6 per person) with hidden sites and activities for older children.

There are many different types of vegetables to pick throughout the farm. The costs are very low (example: we picked green beans for $1.00 a pound. Store prices are $2.99 a pound!). Some vegetables to pick are potatoes, corn, kale, lettuce, green beans. You may also pick a bunch of flowers for $5. Buckets are provided at the pay area.

The farm has a very large pumpkin area to pick pumpkins. There is an abundance of pumpkins to choose from. At the pay area various pumpkin sizes are displayed with prices marked on them so you know exactly how much your pumpkin will cost.


Highlights of Creek House Farm & Pumpkin Patch:

  • USA Map Corn Maze
  • Scenic Location
  • U-Pick Vegetables
  • Large Pumpkin Field
  • Indoor Barn Play Area with swings


Recommended Ages for the Pumpkin Patch:

All ages. There are no rides and only two pigs to look at, but all aged kids appeared to have a very fun time!


Review of the Pumpkin Patch:

Bailey Vegetables and Pumpkin Patch provided something fun for every member of our family. Not only did we pick pumpkins, we were able to pick kale, green beans and corn. Our kids had never harvested food, the experience was new to them and taught our city kids where food comes from.

The corn maze was much larger and took longer to complete than I expected. You could accidentally get lost on purpose finding the hidden sites in the maze! My kids especially liked the mini football and baseball field inside the maze.

The location is serene. All around the farm is a meadow view between mountains.
