Just In Time For Summer

Just in time for Summer

Crazy busy these days.  Two novels coming out June 7.

Forever Beach36kbForever Beach as Shelley Noble, about a young single woman’s determination to  adopt her foster daughter, but her only shot at protecting the child she loves is to enlist the help of her estranged former best friend, who betrayed her when they were both in the foster system and who is now a high profile family lawyer.

Fortunately her friends are there to help her to see her way through with support, love and good times at the beach—their Forever Beach

 

 

And A Golden Cage, the second of my Shelley Freydont, Newport Gilded Age Mystery, Golden Cage revisewhere headstrong heiress Deanna Randolph must solve another murder among the social elite.
With her mother in Europe, Deanna is staying with the Ballard family, who agree to chaperone her through the summer season and guide her toward an advantageous marriage proposal—or so her mother hopes. Relishing her new freedom, Deanna is more interested in buying one of the fashionable new bathing costumes, joining a ladies’ bicycling club, and befriending an actress named Amabelle Deeks. Mayhem ensues.

Read excerpts  at Shelley Freydont  and Shelley Noble.

And check out my blog tour schedule  on the announcements  page. Now back to work.

What’s your favorite kind of summer reading?

A To Do List, really

to doI’ve often wondered why I never get to the end of my to do list.  Today I finally got it, because it’s a to do list, not a done list, or a never mean to do list, but a to do list, and the items that you don’t get accomplished just get transferred to the next to do list.

I’ve noticed that the ones that get left over from the list the day before, are also the ones that don’t get done today or tomorrow.  There’s a message there.  So tomorrow i’m putting the ones still to be done tonight at the top of tomorrow’s list. Think I can make it work?

For example, this blog.  I have three novels and a novella coming out from now through September.  Just thinking about it amazes me.  I’ve been doing edits, copyedits, proof reading as well as beginning next years books.   (May the force be with me  . . .and you too.) I’ve written blogs for other people, but I forgot about my own.

But I’m still here and this year’s novels will be here soon.

Whisper Beach

Whisper Beach

My beach book comes out first.  It’s sort of a Big Chill -2015 Jersey Shore Edition story. Four childhood friends , well actually three friends and the other girl who sometimes hung out with them, come back as adults to attend a funeral.  Things have changed . . .or have they?  Maybe they are finally experiencing all the things about friendship that they never understood before.  But can they trust it?  Or each other?

It’s a theme I like to explore,  the meaning of friendship and trust and how far love can bend before it breaks.

What about friendship interests you most?

Whisper Beach June 16
