New romance for you

A new series has added to my catalog: The Wyoming Marriage Association. Characters you love from my other Wyoming romance series join forces to bring together people they hope will find love and happiness as they have. You can now buy the first book in the series, First Date: Divorce, and pre-order the second title, Second Start: Family, which is coming in 2023. Expect love, romance, humor and a little mystery.

Panning for a new mystery

In the latest Caught Dead in Wyoming story, Cross Talk, Elizabeth unravels a murder with ties to egotistical anchor Thurston Fine, plus other KWMT mysteries. Some clarity begins to form in the Tom-Mike question as well. That sets the stage for an answer in Book 12, Air Ready, now a pre-order at most ebook retailers.
