I know you’ve been waiting a long time for the next book in my African Violet Club Mysteries.
So have I!
I think it will be worth the wait. After several life events interrupted my writing plans, I read what I had written previously to refresh my memory as to where to pick up the story. And I loved it!
Inspired by the photographs of the incomparable Ed Mullins, this one takes place in a ghost town. I think you’ll agree that Susan Coils has designed another fabulous cover. If you take a look at Ed’s Old West photos, you should find the one I asked her to use as the background.
Release date is getting closer! Last night I sent the manuscript off to my beta readers. These fabulous women have volunteered to read it and find the mistakes an author is too close to the work to see. Once they’re finished, I’ll fix those mistakes and send it on to a proofreader.
You’ll be able to buy it!
Here’s a preview of the story:
Did no-nonsense, retired librarian Lilliana Wentworth really see a ghost?
Who haunts the abandoned town of Greenville?
Rainbow Ranch, Arizona is neck deep in controversy over the development of a nearby ghost town into a tourist attraction. The business people see the ghost town as a boon. The townspeople see it as a blight.
The dispute has the town choosing sides, tempers flaring. When one of the adversaries is murdered, suspects abound. Including the Ghost of Greenville.
This time the chief of police doesn’t want her help. Even though he needs it.
There’s too much at stake for the people of Rainbow Ranch for Lilliana to sit on her hands. She’s determined to solve the crime. Even if she has to solve it on her own.
