Welcome to Morello Cove, a small coastal town tugged into Monterey Bay, California. It’s a charming spot, and if you ever find yourself passing through, be sure to stop. Parking’s free on the central boardwalk sitting across from the picturesque pier jutting out and just begging for you to take a walk on it. Buy a cold refreshment or an ice cream cone at Dot Maguire’s at the end of the boardwalk, and don’t cheat yourself out of an extraordinary sunset walk on the pier. I might see you there.

You might also want to take a walk on the beach, go for a swim, or simply enjoy the sun on the beautiful beaches. Or, if you’re more in the mood to explore the town, start on the boardwalk. There’s an abundance of cafés, restaurants, and bars, so whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it there. There are also shops sure to suit anyone’s taste. You’ll find everything from souvenirs to high scale taylor-made dresses. In fact…be sure to check out Annata, the vintage dress and jewelry store right in the middle of the boardwalk. It’s right across from the pier, so you can’t miss it.
Annata offers you a wide range of vintage dresses with matching jewelry. No matter if you’re going to prom or to the Academy Awards, you’ll find something to suit your taste and your budget. And who wouldn’t love a unique vintage dress?

I promise you that you won’t regret stopping at Morello Cove on your way up or down the coast. The residents are friendly, and although it may just look like a sleepy coastal town at the first glance, there’s enough happening beneath the surface to keep you entertained for a while. So book into the hotel – they’ve got rooms with excellent view of the ocean – and stay for a while.
Morello Cove is the fictional setting for my three next books, Vintage Dreams, Dreams of Home, and Dreaming with You, all set to be released in 2016. The first, Vintage Dreams, will be released on February 6th. You can add it on Goodreads already.
