The Third Secrets of Sweetwater Crossing Book

Welcome back 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 particularly excited about this book, because it answers the biggest secret in the whole series: what really happened to Clive Finley? He's the man who built Finley House, the mansion that's pictured on the cover of After the Shadows. Everyone in Sweetwater Crossing believes he died in the War Between the States. His fiancee believes something quite different. What's the truth?

Into the Starlight, the last of the Secrets of Sweetwater Crossing trilogy, introduces Joanna, the middle Vaughn sister. She's been in Europe studying to be a concert pianist, but when tragedy strikes, she has to abandon her dream and come home again.

Meanwhile, talented physician Burke Finley, the nephew of the man who built Finley House, is dealing with his own tragedy, so when Clive's former fiancee asks him to accompany her to Sweetwater Crossing to see Clive's grave, he jumps at the chance to leave his old life behind ... at least for a few weeks.

It should be a simple trip, but once he arrives, Burke discovers that nothing he or Joanna believed about Clive's final days is true. It's up to Joanna and Burke to uncover the truth, even though it may put everything they hold most dear in jeopardy.

The Second Secrets of Sweetwater Crossing Book

Like many authors, I wait anxiously for reviews of my books. You can imagine my reaction when Midwest Book Reviews said, "Against the Wind is historical Christian romance at its very best." I was thrilled by both their review and by the number of emails I've received from readers saying they think this is my best book yet.

So, what's the book about?

When a female doctor-in-training saves a handsome stranger's life, little does she know that he'll bring both love and danger into her life. That's the 30-second pitch for Against the Wind, the story of Louisa, the youngest Vaughn sister, who left Sweetwater Crossing in a fit of anger when her oldest sister Emily turned their home into a boardinghouse.

It's a year later, and much has changed ... including Louisa herself.

And then there's Josh, the injured man she finds on the side of the road. His carefully crafted plans are in serious jeopardy, thanks to a badly broken leg.

Neither he nor Louisa has any intention of staying in Sweetwater Crossing, but sometimes plans don't turn out quite the way we expect, do they?
