The Gulf

A Novel

The Gulf

A hilarious send-up of writing workshops, for-profit education, and the gulf between believers and nonbelievers Marianne is in a slump: barely able to support herself by teaching, not making progress on her poetry, about to lose her Brooklyn apartment. When her novelist ex-fiancé, Eric, and his venture capitalist brother, Mark, offer her a job directing a low-residency school for Christian writers at a motel they’ve inherited on Florida’s Gulf Coast, she can’t come up with a reason to say no. The Genesis Inspirational Writing Ranch is born, and liberal, atheist Marianne is soon knee-deep in applications from writers whose political and religious beliefs she has always opposed but whose money she’s glad to take. Janine is a schoolteacher whose heartfelt poems explore the final days of Terri Schiavo’s life. Davonte is a former R&B superstar who hopes to reboot his career with a bestselling tale of excess and redemption. Lorraine and Tom, eccentric writers in need of paying jobs, join the Ranch as instructors. Mark finds an investor in God’s Word God’s World, a business that develops for-profit schools for the Christian market, but the conditions that come along with their support become increasingly problematic, especially as Marianne grows closer to the students. As unsavory allegations mount, a hurricane bears down on the Ranch, and Marianne is faced with the consequences of her decisions. With sharp humor and deep empathy, The Gulf is a memorable debut novel in which Belle Boggs plumbs the troubled waters dividing America.

Head Over Heels

A Sweet Small Town Romance

Head Over Heels

All she wanted was a home for a shelter dog. What she got was a man with the biggest heart she’d ever seen and a past that made her cry. Sally Gray has been surrounded by tall, dark, handsome men her entire life. It's going to take a lot more than big muscles and a fondness for Irish Wolfhounds to make her fall for the man from Copper Creek. Todd Randall had the perfect life; a career that took him around the world, a wife and son that he loved beyond words. Then in one terrifying night everything changed, and he's never been the same since. Sally needs Todd's help to make a bride's dream come true, but he gave up believing in dreams a long time ago. With a wedding disaster looming and no happy ending in sight, Sally has no choice but to do what it takes to make Todd change his mind. If that means confronting everything that's kept him locked away from the world, then she'll do it. Even if the price turns out to be more than either of them can afford. Head Over Heels is the third book in The Bridesmaids Club series and can easily be read as a standalone.
