So, tomorrow, my little book THE PEOPLE WHO KILL will be in the world.
I’m not sure why I’m so haunted by this group of characters and why I get so much more anxious about these books than my others, but I really do.
Thank you so much for reading it. Your reading allows me to keep writing. So thank you. Thank you a million trillion times over.
This year was quite a year for me to get out there. It started as a love story for my husband and my little girl and my town and became something beyond any of us and especially beyond me. Fiction is so much fun that way. I hope you check it out. And thank you so much for your support. Being a writer means everything to me.
It’s the second book in the Bar Harbor Rose Mystery series is called THE PEOPLE WHO KILL.
You can read an excerpt here. I had the best time writing it. You can order it here.
Sometimes it seems like everyone wants someone to die . . . .
After dealing with a serial killer and a long Maine winter, Rosie Jones is ready for a little bit of calm in her adopted coastal Maine town. Then Ernie Emerson, a ladies man and newly married cop, is bludgeoned to death outside a summer estate in what many think was a robbery gone wrong.
But Rosie soon realizes that a lot of people, including the fired town manager, had some pretty powerful reasons to want Ernie dead.
The death of Ernie brings a whole lot of repercussions for Rosie. She might be losing her reporting job. There’s all kinds of tension with her still-not-divorced, sort-of-boyfriend, Seamus Kelley, and her snooping is potentially making her the killer’s next target.
Hoping to solve the crime before she gets hurt any more, Rosie starts to put the pieces together. But that’s not that easy when nobody, including Seamus, wants her to do law enforcement’s job and solve the murder of one of their own.
My next book? It’s in July and it’s called THOSE WHO SURVIVED and it’s a YA murder mystery.
