Jess Rand is ready for a fresh start. Her marriage of twenty-five years is over and all she wants to do is retreat to Whispering Pines, a place of peace and solitude given to her family by their beloved Aunt Celia. She’s watched her sister Renee make the most of second chances, and if Renee can survive the death of a spouse and the loss of her career, Jess can bounce back from divorce.
But then her husband shows up late at night, broken and bedraggled, bringing bad news and asking her to do the unimaginable. Long-buried secrets and new accusations tangle together, threatening to ruin Aunt Celia’s reputation. Jess may be the only one who can find out the truth. And with two kids in college and a new surprise at home, she feels her fresh start slipping away. Even the tranquility she always finds at Whispering Pines might not be enough to help her stay true to her own path.
Can she do what her ex asks? Can she right the ship of Celia’s past before it’s too late?
Does she even have a choice?

Kimberly Diede’s first novel, Whispering Pines, was inspired by her real-life “Aunt Celia,” Mary K. Nierling. Aunt Mary was a generous, extraordinary, slightly formidable woman who excelled in a “man’s world” in the mid-1900s. The Celia’s Gifts series is Kimberly’s way of honoring her great-aunt and the legacy she left behind. Tangled Beginnings is the second novel in her series.
An avid life-long reader, Kimberly would occasionally read until the sun rose, before adult responsibilities made the habit unsustainable. Her love of reading has evolved into a love of writing as a creative outlet from the demands of thirty years in corporate America. She is currently at work on future novels in her Celia’s Gifts series.
Kimberly lives in North Dakota with her family and spends as much time as possible at the lake in the summertime.
