Hart’s Ridge is a small, quaint town
where everyone knows their neighbors.

Or at least they think they do.

About The Hart's Ridge Series

Nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains, Hart's Ridge is a quaint, undiscovered town. That is until you dig a little deeper and learn that no matter how perfect things look, every town has its secrets. Taylor Gray, having clawed her way out of poverty and foster care, has reached her dream of being in law enforcement.

However, the townspeople aren't the only ones that she is committed to serve and protect. She's also caretaker to her father and sisters. A family that she’s trying to piece back together.

Praise for Kay

“Kay Bratt beautifully draws the story of a daughter returning to Maui—the enchanted land that she believes holds the key to her past—where she unlocks a promising future she never could have imagined. …True to Me is the ultimate escape.”

—Kristy Woodson Harvey, bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple


“[Dancing with the Sun is] a baring-of-the-soul emotional story that leaves you with a heart full of love and hope.” 

—Carolyn Brown, New York Times bestselling author

“Wish Me Home has all the trademarks of a Kay Bratt novel: a heartwarming story that nourishes the soul, beloved characters, and a plot that kept me turning pages. Without shying away from the harshness of life, Bratt has managed to create a world in which kindness and goodness prevail.”

—Karen McQuestion, bestselling author of Hello Love

“Nothing like a harrowing, life-threatening, and completely unplanned hike through Yosemite’s backcountry to make you face years of grief and guilt head on. Kay Bratt pulls this off masterfully in Dancing with the Sun, an emotional mother-daughter tale of love, forgiveness, and renewal.”

—Kerry Lonsdale, Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author

“Best friends Quinn and Maggie have spent the past year trying to outrun dangers from their pasts—one a stalker, the other family secrets. In this page-turning drama, Bratt has created two strong, dynamic female characters who readers will be sure to root for.”

—Amanda Prowse, bestselling author of The Girl in the Corner

No Place Too Far is Kay Bratt at her best. …Once again, Bratt tackles complex contemporary issues with remarkable agility and compassion, and it’s an absolute pleasure to be along for this ride. ...I forgot all about errands and laundry and the minivan and soaked up Hawaii, in all its glorious heritage and beauty.”

—Lea Geller, author of Trophy Life
