Happy 2018, my dears!
I hope your holidays were cozy and full of all the things and people you love. In the past couple weeks we’ve layered on the sweaters and spent lots of time refilling bird feeders, but happily so. I’ve been making plans for the year, and they’re relatively simple: more time with the people I love, more reading, and more writing. You’ll see me a bit less here on the blog, but I promise to make up for it in stories. (Do subscribe to the blog right here so you won’t miss a post!)
It feels so good to have a New Book in the New Year. I know you’ve been hearing a lot about Trouble, the black cat detective. Never in my wildest dreams did I guess that I would write a cat detective book that’s full of mystery and romance. I love trying new things, and I figured, why not? I think you’re going to really like the result.
SMALL TOWN TROUBLE is the 5th book in the Familiar Legacy Series. Trouble is the creation of my dear friend/wildly fun, prolific writer, Carolyn Haines. She’s gathered some terrific writers to write Trouble’s adventures. (Although I seriously think I have the coolest cover so far. Shhhhhh. Don’t tell the others I said so.)
I sent Trouble to tiny New Belford, KY (which I totally made up–it’s about an hour southwest of Louisville). He’s visiting Erin Walsh, a college student who’s home from UK for the summer. When her saucy stepmother Shelby Rae is kidnapped, and a close friend of Erin’s is murdered, she sets out to solve both mysteries with Trouble’s help. Oh, and there’s a handsome guy named Noah Daly–whose dad, by the way, is indirectly responsible for Erin’s mother’s death–who wants to get to know Erin better. But is he going to be Erin’s summer romance, or is he mixed up in the crimes affecting her family? Only Trouble knows for sure.
So hie thee to a bookstore and find out what happens to Trouble, Erin and Noah! And what happens when a writer who’s written mostly dark suspense takes a walk on the lighter side…You probably won’t find it on your local bookstore’s shelves since the series is in limited distribution. But you can order it at any bookstore, or pick it up online!
Can’t wait to hear what you think!
