Wish Me Home is one of Kay’s most popular works. The book follows a young girl named Cara who has decided that she has had enough of the family troubles and sets off on the road. She is headed for Florida and what she doesn’t have room for is a stray dog, but the dog becomes a companion to her anyway. As she travels, the dog becomes the perfect travel companion for her. As she journeys further she makes friends with strangers who make her question everything. The trip is more than just a journey for her, it’s a life changing event.

True to Me is the first book in the By the Sea series. The book follows Quinn who learns on her mother’s death bed that the father she resents is not her father at all. Her mother reveals her true father which sends Quinn on an adventure to Maui to find him. Quinn leaves behind her fiance, who is not very happy about that, but in Maui she will find more than just her family history – she’ll begin to find herself.
