Meet Beth Carter

After being a bank VP, Beth Carter shed her suits and heels to write from home in her PJ's. She now writes children's picture books and novels.

Her debut novel, THURSDAYS AT COCONUTS, was released August, 2014, by Soul Mate Publishing and is receiving rave reviews. The genre is women's fiction with elements of romance and suspense. Tagline: Three BFFs, wine, hippies, sexy cops and neurotic brides. What could go wrong?

Carter also enjoys writing for children and has three picture books published--WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE?, THE MISSING KEY, and SANTA'S SECRET. All three have received wonderful comments from kids, parents, teachers and counselors.

As the go-to wedding planner, Suzy can't find her own wedded bliss and has one shocker of a wedding day. It doesn't help that she's still pining for her high school sweetheart, the one who got away. Handling neurotic brides is the best part of Suzy's day until her son brings home a bombshell from Europe. Alexandra, a beautiful marketer with a "touch" of OCD, falls for a bad-boy cop who's married and possibly stalking her. But he sure is sexy. Alex tries to stay at arm's length after she puts her job-and life-on the line for the officer who isn't always a gentleman. Hope hates her name, looks, and frizzy hair. As a high school counselor, she dishes out sage advice to students, yet can't see she's enabling her deadbeat, stuck-in-the-seventies hippie parents. After tragedy strikes, she reexamines their relationship and discovers a secret that almost went to the grave. Friends since high school, the thirty-something women meet every Thursday at Coconuts for their own form of friendapy.
