Good morning, Bloggers!  Grab some coffee, and let’s talk about our weeks.




This week, I’ve been busily updating blogs and my website, now that my newest novel, Interior Designs, is available on Amazon.   The Kindle version should be available by the end of next week.

Are you enjoying spring yet?  I hope that the snowy places will soon be full of spring blossoms and fragrant air.

      And I LOVE Nicci French and this series. I also was excited to find a Lisa Scottoline book that I hadn’t read yet. Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week.


  1. Congratulations on your book being out!! You have some interesting books on your list to read. I enjoy Nicci French’s series and Lisa Scottoline’s books are always good. Have a great week.

    Congrats on your book!!! I listened to The Peach Keeper – it’s very good. SAA is one of my favorite authors!!! Have you read her latest, Lost Lake? I have the new Chevy Stevens on my tbr list – I like to listen to her books on audio, so waiting for it to be available on Audible.

    Have a great week!

    1. Thanks for the congrats, Kristin…and I haven’t yet read SAA…The Peach Keeper will be my first. I am already reading the Chevy Stevens book and didn’t get much sleep last night…it was so hard to put down! Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your week.


  3. Congrats on your book being out! It sounds very nice. We are finally, in fits and starts, getting some spring like weather around here. sheesh!

    Hope your books this week are all good!


    1. Thanks for the congrats, Greg…and I’m already loving this week’s reads. I finished That Night, because I could not put it down! Now I need to sleep…LOL.

      Glad you could stop by, and enjoy your reading.


    1. Thanks, Mary…hope to find readers who enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by…I can’t wait to read Hidden, and should be reading The Peach Keeper soon. Thanks for stopping by…enjoy your week.


  4. Ooh, Casebook is new to me and looks really good. I enjoy the freshened-up looks of your blogs, very nice indeed. I read the first Nicci French in that series, was it called Blue Monday (?) but didn’t get to read anymore of hers. Will be looking for your review. I also read The Peach Keeper awhile back, good read.
    Congrats again on Interior Designs. It is at the top of my to-buy list after I move. Enjoy your week!


    1. Thanks for the congrats, Rita, and for noticing the blogs.

      After Blue Monday came Tuesday’s Gone, which was another good one. Thursday’s Children (the 4th one) is available in some parts of the world already…just not here yet.

      Have a great week…and may your packing and moving proceed smoothly!


    1. Thanks, Nise….It has been more than five years since my last book came out, but before that, I had brought out five books in two years. I think I was taking a breather! LOL

      And blogging has consumed my time, too.

      I also enjoy the Rosato & Associates series…and That Night was awesome! I couldn’t put it down!


    1. Thanks, Angie…I’m happy about it, too.

      This morning, I could smell spring orange blossoms as I stood outside the train station waiting to see my granddaughter off. It definitely felt like spring!


  5. Love the picture for Spring! I’ve been getting rain apparently all week, and with that comes all the nasties.

    Ooo, and there’s a book called Waiting on Wednesday??? O_O Have a great week! 🙂


  6. Woohoo congrats on your book release!! I just finished the 4th book in the Frieda Klein series but it was the 1st I’ve read, publisher assured me it could be read as a stand-a-lone, I’m usually anal about reading in order lol. Looking forward to your thoughts on That Night.
    Have a great week and happy reading 🙂


    1. I had noticed that the Nicci French books are released sooner in your part of the world…I have Thursday’s Children on my list. I have read them in order so far, but I think they could be stand-alones.

      Thanks for the congrats, Teddyree, and for stopping by. Enjoy your reads…and my review of That Night is on An Interior Journey. I LOVED it!


    1. Thanks for the congrats, Shelleyrae….I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series, Thursday’s Children…even though I just got Waiting for Wednesday! But I love the series.

      Glad you could stop by.


    1. I thought so, too, Leslie, and now we have a long wait for the fourth one, already available in Australia…and probably other places…sigh., Enjoy Waiting for Wednesday…I want to shove aside some others in the queue and dive in. Thanks for stopping by.
