I’m back with new stories to tell.

Hope you are well. It’s been a long time since we talked.  I’ve been busy with school, family matters and generally feeling burnt out.  That’s why I took time to step back from writing.

Yet I missed it so much!  So I’m back with new stories to tell.  I might release my books a little slower, however I know you’ll forgive me as long as you get to see what your favourite characters are up to 🙂 

I’ve set a release date of August 1st for Gabe and Britney’s story in Convincing Him, but you can pre-order now. The 9th installment of the Ramesly series sees marriages of convenience being set up after an archaic ultimatum from the three son’s father happens.  Brit and Gabe are a bit of an enemies to lovers story with lots of funny mishaps as Gabe realizes how he has been feeling for Britney all along.

There’s also my new cozy mystery series called Camping Girl which starts with S’more Murder.  I got the idea while camping and thought it would be a fun change to locate the books in a campground full of oddball characters who are determined to help Ivy, whether their help is wanted or not! Look below for more on S’more Murder, as well a recipe. 

Many of you signed up for this newsletter through downloading the free smaller version of Kissing Katie on Bookfunnel.  If you no longer wish to receive these emails, there is an unsubscribe button at the bottom but I hope you will stay and enjoy great adventures with me and my characters!

If you haven’t picked up A Ring For Christmas, the beginning of the Ramesly Brothers Series, then the ebook will be for FREE July 4th and 5th as a happy Canada Day/Independence Day gift.  If you have it already and enjoyed it, tell a friend so that they can enjoy the series too!

Thank you so much for staying with me and Happy Reading! Josephine

Do you love romance but mystery intrigues you even more? Here’s your chance to be the first to discover a whole new series in a different story style by Josephine Beintema! 
Because it’s not every day you find a body in the lake…

A clean, funny cozy mystery that will have readers laughing as they guess who the murderer is!

When Ivy Thurman remembers visiting her grandmother’s campground, she thinks of idyllic childhood summer vacations. Now that she’s inherited the Happy Camper Resort, Ivy sees a money pit. Leaky roofs, whiny golf carts, and a swampy pool are just the beginning of what needs to be fixed. It seems she’s also inherited her grandmother’s tenants, a crew of retirees who live at the aging campground on a full-time basis.

It should have been easy to sell the place, but on Ivy’s second day as the new owner, she falls off the slippery moss covered dock to come face to face with a body! Now a murder has taken place at the campground and Ivy is the prime suspect according to the Oaks Crossing Police Detective. Afterall, the deceased, Ethel Murlay, changed her will to include Ivy as a beneficiary the same day she died.

The citizens of the Happy Camper Resort are going to do everything they can to help Ivy clear her name! From interviewing suspects and a break and enter gone wrong, Ivy is caught up in the enthusiasm of her grandmother’s friends which just might land her in jail. How will she ever be able to sell the campground when it’s starting to feel more and more like home?

Ivy’s Quick S’more Dip. A great treat for when you can’t s’more over a campfire.


1 bag milk chocolate chips (white, dark chocolate or a mix of milk and dark chocolate chips can be substituted depending on your taste buds)

1 bag of mini marshmallows

Graham crackers, cookies, pretzels, or fruit to serve with the dip

To Prepare:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Using an eight inch oven safe pan, sprinkle the chocolate chips into the pan evenly coating the bottom.

Melt chocolate in the oven. This should take between 3-4 minutes.

Pour mini marshmallows evenly onto the melted chocolate and put back into the oven for 2-3 minutes until marshmallows are golden brown on top.

Serve with graham crackers, cookies, pretzels, or fruit for dipping fun. Note: if the dip becomes too cool to dip, just reheat in the oven for 4-5 minutes (note: the crunchy crust of the marshmallows may become a little soft by doing this).

Did you know you can order the whole Ramelsy brothers series?

One day I had enough! I sold my house, quit my job, bought a Jeep and bought a camper! Now I'm set to travel North America and maybe even beyond with my BFF Bean (she's a Boston Terrier)

  1. I love S’More Murder and Magic Brownies. When can I find the third book??? I actually bought these to give to my sister. AND, I have re-read them. Something I rarely do. Waiting to hear from you, hopefully with good news!
