A cottage renovation doesn’t go to plan when love–and secrets–are uncovered
HUNTINGTON, New York – Debut author L. S. Case’s new romance, “A Hundred Days Till Tomorrow” (June 20, 2023, Spark Press), leaves readers exquisitely charmed as it follows Miranda Blair to her estranged grandmother’s estate, where she must spend 100 days in order to inherit it–and where she falls for the handsome emerald-eyed guy next door. Fans of Hallmark movies will love embarking upon a magical summer in which an unlikely attraction blooms–but the future is threatened when secrets are unearthed.
Miranda has spent two decades running from her past, but everything changes when she’s named the sole heir to her grandmother’s estate. The catch? Her grandmother requires a 100-day stay at her smalltown New England cottage as a prerequisite for Miranda’s inheritance. Miranda begrudgingly accepts, and despite the charms of the picturesque town of Cobblers Hill, the abandoned property needs a makeover as desperately as Miranda does.
There’s a definite perk: her handsome neighbor Jake Colby, who awakens Miranda’s taste for adventure by showing her the hidden beauty of Cobblers Hill. As attraction grows, Miranda allows herself to embrace new possibilities. But when secrets are revealed, can she trust her heart to choose the future she truly wants?
“A richly detailed novel which you will want to revisit again and again. A journey of heart and soul, it explores the intricacies of family, relationships, and the old adage that nothing is as it seems.”
— Jeannie Moon, USA Today bestselling author of “The Temporary Wife”

An Interview with
L. S. Case
1. What attracted you to writing a romance novel? Where did the inspiration for this story come from?
I’ve always been a romantic, having married my high school sweetheart almost thirty years ago. I’m also an avid Hallmark movie viewer, Nicholas Sparks reader, gazebo lover, and happily-ever-after believer. While I created this delicious escape with relatable characters to root for and invest in, I aspired to instill hope and ignite change in my readers. They were at the heart of each written word.
2. What was your favorite part about writing the novel? What did you find most challenging?
Writing A Hundred Days Till Tomorrow provided a cathartic distraction from life’s curveballs. I loved strategically placing my characters’ footprints throughout the journey, determining their strengths and adversities, and ensuring hope prevailed. But while my faith in the storyline was unwavering, I often doubted myself as the storyteller—I struggled to change my mindset from “why me?” to “why not me?”
3. You are very active in your community and enjoy giving back. What inspires you to take action?
Sometimes in life, we are on the receiving end of kindness and compassion. At other times we are called upon to be that beacon of hope. As a firm believer in the power of one person sparking change, I never want to turn away from a cause. If there is a difference to be made, I’ll do my best to make it. It’s a responsibility I never take lightly.
4. Do you have plans for future books?
Yes. I am writing my second women’s fiction novel, Bringing Back Yesterday. Like A Hundred Days Till Tomorrow, it brings a spirit of renewal, growth, and self-acceptance through compelling characters in a picturesque lakeside setting.
5. What advice do you wish to give to writers who are beginning their journey?
Surround yourself with the prayer warriors and cheerleaders who breathe life into your book-writing aspirations. Join a writer’s group and take classes. Immerse yourself wherever you find inspiration. Don’t allow fear of failure or negativity to steal your pen. There is no expiration date on your dreams, so enjoy the writing journey—and never put a period where there should be a comma!
