Lots of readers tell me their favorite thing about River Sutton Mysteries is the relationship between sisters Robin and Jenn. Confession time: Me too! Here's a lil' bit of conversation between the gals from A Fatal Fumble to give you an idea of how fun they are in Book 2 of the series. Jenn pulled sunglasses from her oversized handbag and jammed them on her nose. “Who cinched her girth too tight? I’ve never seen Heidi so angry.” “Me, neither.” Robin searched the crowd for the troublemaker in question, but she must have stormed off after her rant. “She has some pretty strong feelings about you.” “And about Jim.” Robin leaned closer to Jenn. “I think she’s the one having an affair with Jim.” Jenn pursed her lips and nodded. “Makes sense. First of all, she’s frickin’ gorgeous. I’d kill to have those boobs. Deb wouldn’t mind, either.” She winked at Robin. Robin rolled her eyes to the sky. “TMI.” “Second of all, they work together. All those business trips he took? Maybe she … [Read more...] about Excerpt from ‘A Fatal Fumble’
I'm just over the moon that four- and five-star reviews continue to come in for Roadside Homicide. I was so scared that my first novel would be a stinker. (But let me tell you, A Fatal Fumble is even better.) Here's what Anne said on Goodreads recently: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ What a treat to read this new book. I loved the small town dynamics and interactions. The plot is very unique and even with multiple characters and a few different plots, nothing gets lost or minimized. I cannot wait until the next in this series. Also, the author has prequel out for this series titled A Shoulder to Die On. Again it is a fun read. I'm a little jealous of how much these sisters love each other. Anne, thank you so much! 💖 Your words warm my heart. Would you like your review featured in my newsletter? All you have to do is review Roadside Homicide on Amazon or Goodreads.

Readers! On Tuesday, I promised to reveal the title and cover for the second novel in the River Sutton Mysteries. The wait is over! (Because I know you've been relentlessly refreshing your email, just dying to know.) [Cue drum roll...] 📣 📣 📣 📣 📣 📣 📣 A Fatal Fumble Isn't it gorgeous? My cover designer, Bailey, outdid herself. Funny story. I requested a cover that featured a football game. Originally, the players were placed so they looked like they were playing soccer, as we Americans call it. 😆 Bailey lives in Paris, so there may have been an international disconnect there. 😉 Obviously, it all worked out beautifully. For now, I'll let you guess what the story is about. What do you think of the title and cover? Hit 'reply' and let me know. Or send me a DM on Facebook or Instagram. … [Read more...] about Title and Cover Reveal for Book 2
A package goes missing all the time. The UPS driver takes it to the wrong address. The box disappears into the Raiders of the Lost Ark abyss of a warehouse. It gets stolen right from someone's front doorstep. (And the smart doorbell didn't even get a good shot of the jerk!) That's the premise of The Disappearing Deliveries, my NEW short story. Our lovely newlyweds, Jenn and Deb, have just moved into Deb's apartment. But it's June, and the air conditioning is broken. Temperatures and tempers are running hot when the smart speaker they ordered is stolen. With only four apartments in the building, the suspects are limited. 🔎 In 1A lives Annie Booth, the family friend who helped Deb get the apartment and is like a grandmother to her. 🔎 In 1B lives Diana Warner, a tech whiz who works from home and has enough gear to run the pentagon from her apartment. 🔎 In 2A lives Matthew Wu, a divorced dad who also works from home as a graphic designer, and whose kids come to live with him … [Read more...] about Mystery Chronicles Presents: The Disappearing Deliveries
