You first met Christy and Todd in the Christy Miller High School series and followed her through the College Years and Married Years. Now you can soak up all the happy/exciting/confusing moment with your favorite imaginary couple when you read Sandy Toes.

Ready for some fun behind the scenes info?

  • There will be 3 books in this new series. Book #2, Salty Kisses releases in April, 2017.  Book #3, Sunset Lullaby releases in October, 201
  • The couple on the covers of all 3 Baby Years books are the same real life husband and wife who were the hand models for both The College Years and The Married Years series. They used to live around the corner from me and are a real life Christy and Todd couple. Their children are the models with them on the Baby Years covers.
  • The setting for the covers, complete with the palm trees and the amazing sunsets, is all real. The photographer took us to a sort of secret location about an hour from where I live. It’s one of the photographer’s favorite hidden places for capturing special moments like the ones she shot for this series.

I hope your enjoy your reunion with Christy and Todd!

    This was by far my favorite book. As I read it, I am 6mo preggo and I feel like I was reading my life to a T. I laughed and cried as I read it! Such a beautiful book!

  • Mine came last week and it’s long been finished! I LOVED it!

    So excited! I have to wait until Christmas to get mine as a gift… Good thing I’m busy finishing rereading the Sierra series! I’m excited Christy and Todd are entering the same season of life as me! You’re books always speak to my heart no matter how many times I’ve read them – thank you!

    I have been an avid reader of Robin Jones Gunn since I was in high school. My, do I love the forever friends. I confess that this book is the number one item on my Christmas list. Christy and Todd embarking parenthood is a very exciting thought.

    I finished this one today! I was almost crying because it was getting near the end. I can hardly wait for April! Really fun though, cuz Christy and I were preggers at the same time…except my baby is due in February. :) So fun to read while pregnant!

    Hello Robin! I have been reading your books and following the series since age of eleven. I have long waited to see this happy ending be rewarded to my favorite fictional couple. It was so worth the wait! I feel as if I grew up with these books and Christy in a way. They have taught me so much about my own relationship with God and I know he placed them in my life for this reason. Thank you so much!
