Springtime Updates!

Happy March, and Happy International Women's Day, friends! I cannot believe that we'll already be "springing forward" on Sunday, March 10th, then celebrating the first official day of spring in 12 days. Where has the time gone?! It feels as if we were just celebrating Christmas and New Year's. Here in Chicago, the Lake Michigan boat tours are in full swing, and we'll be dyeing the river green on Saturday the 16th (I'll be sure to share pics)! 

As for me, keep reading for what I've been up to and what I've got planned in the coming weeks...

In case you missed it over on my social media, I've signed a new three-book deal with Harlequin Intrigue! 🎉

When I began writing my West Coast Crime Story series back in 2021, I thought I'd pen a family-oriented trilogy and end it there. Little did I know those three books would turn into five. And now, I am thrilled to share that I'll be adding more stories, which means we'll be eight books in and counting...

I love how this series has resonated with readers and can't wait to share all the new characters, locales and investigations with you. Stay tuned as more info will be coming soon! 

Since we're on the subject of the West Coast Crime Story series...

Can a rookie help a veteran cop catch a diabolical killer?

Book 4 in the series, HOMETOWN HOMICIDE, will hit shelves on September 1st. I'll be revealing the cover and official blurb right here on my blog and across my social media on Monday, April 1st. Spoiler Alert: I've already seen the cover, and I love it. 🤗 Be sure to come back and check it out!

Next up, I am thrilled to announce that HOMICIDE AT VINCENT VINEYARD has been selected as an It's LIT! Literary Awards Top 5 finalist in the Best Black Mystery/Suspense category! 🎉 The awards are sponsored by Black Girls Who Write (BGWW), which is an amazing organization whose mission is to, "Uplift and elevate 10,000+ Black women writers who want to publish best-selling books, grow a loyal readership, and build a recognizable brand."

I recently received book mail from one of my favorite Harlequin authors, Kathy Douglass. Her latest novel, STARTING OVER WITH THE MAVERICK, is Book 5 in the Montana Mavericks series. Here's the scoop:

The cowboy she hadn’t counted on...

After losing her husband, Elizabeth Hawkins is happy to be reunited with her rodeo-riding sisters and extended family, even if she expects her time in Montana may be brief. But she's thrown when Bronco native Jake McCreery ambles into her heart…and even more when it looks as though the commitment-shy cowboy wants to stay! The rugged rancher is also a widower with three kids; she has two. Together they could make a beautiful life, but only if they can find the courage to take a second chance on love—with each other.

STARTING OVER WITH THE MAVERICK hits shelves on May 1st and is available for preorder. CLICK HERE to snag your copy! 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you next month for the HOMETOWN HOMICIDE cover/blurb reveal!
