After the Shadows

Coming March 2023

Available for Preorder

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.

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?

The Final Mesquite Springs Book

Cabot takes readers to 1850s Texas in the intrigue-filled final installment of the Mesquite Springs series. The juicy schemes and blossoming romance will keep the pages turning. Publishers Weekly

An appealing read for fans of westerns and Christian romantic suspense. Booklist

Since everyone tells me that an author shouldn't have favorite books, I probably shouldn't admit this, but The Spark of Love is my favorite of the Mesquite Springs trilogy, the story of an heiress who flees New York when an unwanted suitor threatens her, never dreaming that danger will follow her or that the charismatic man she meets on the stagecoach is a private investigator out to unmask a con man ... her father.
