After the Shadows

Latest Release

The First Secrets of Sweetwater Crossing Book

Welcome to Sweetwater Crossing, a bustling town in the Texas Hill Country where secrets abound and maybe, just maybe, three couples can find happily-ever-after.

I'm delighted to tell you that After the Shadows is now available and has received rave reviews, including a starred review from Library Journal, which called it "a must-buy."

So, what's it about? Emily Leland no longer believes in happily-ever-after. Her marriage has left her fearful of men, and when she returns home, she discovers her father has died under mysterious circumstances. What else can go wrong?

Widowed schoolmaster Craig Ferguson knows it's time for a change. Though he doubts he'll ever remarry, both he and his two-year old son need a new life, and so he seizes the opportunity to teach in Sweetwater Crossing. Unfortunately, the town is not the idyllic spot Craig had anticipated.

Can Emily and Craig unravel the secrets behind her father's death and escape the shadows of their own pasts?

Against the Wind

Coming October 3, 2023

The Second Secrets of Sweetwater Crossing Book

Those of you who hate to wait a full year between releases will be happy to know that Against the Wind will be available in early October.

This is the story of doctor-in-training Louisa, the youngest Vaughn sister, and the injured man she finds on the side of the road. Neither one of them has any intention of staying in Sweetwater Crossing, but sometimes plans don't turn out quite the way we expect, do they?
