Her New Kentucky Home
Sheila Mackey’s plan for a new life is going great. She’s bought a house in northern Kentucky and adopted rescue collie Gracie. They’re spending a lot of time at the Torrid Avenue dog park and making new friends … until Gracie finds a body in Death on Torrid Ave. Sheila untangles the secrets behind the murder, but her own secrets might be at risk from Teague O’Donnell, the new guy at the dog park. After a transatlantic cruise introduction, this Book 2 of my new Secret Sleuth cozy mystery series lands our heroine back on solid ground in the Midwest area where she grew up and continues to face a crossroads in her writing career.

.A New Direction
Death on the Diversion is Book 1 of my new Secret Sleuth cozy mystery series, inspired by my transatlantic cruise in 2017. Sheila Mackey is a young, aspiring writer who has been the secret public face of her great-aunt’s bestselling books. She has joined her great-aunt on a cruise aboard the Diversion as a transition into a new chapter in her life. When a passenger turns up dead, Sheila realizes she knows a whole lot more about the interactions of the victim and the suspects than the ship’s officials do.
Look for a print edition of Death on the Diversion coming this spring.

The seven romances of The Wedding Series are now available in an ebook boxed set called The Wedding Series: The Complete Series, out now at Apple Books, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.

In Books 6 and 7, royal matchmaking roils a small-town Wisconsin college basketball community and upends a Wyoming rancher who finds he may be destined for a crown instead of cowboy hat.
