Did you know that I have a Fourth of July mystery? Doggone Dead takes my heroine Betsy through the trials of a hot July in Texas, a beauty pageant and the ghost of dead cowboy star Charlie Loper who seems to still have an intact six-shooter. I also introduce the character of Libby Loper, Charlie’s daughter, who is not in a good place at the beginning of this book.  Be sure to look for the Prize Guy for your chance at a free digital copy of Doggone Dead!

Doggone Dead is my third novel in the Pecan Bayou series.  It continues the mystery-solving adventures of Betsy Livingston, the local helpful hints writer.  As you can see on the cover, there is a dog running loose in Pecan Bayou.  As I wrote the book I had two dogs, Martin, a dachshund mix and Hank, a blue heeler who looked like a tall, lanky beagle. Hank was an internet special. My husband found him listed at a shelter and fell in love with him.

Hank ended up being a wonderful dog.  He was loyal and obedient and stayed next to my son with Down Syndrome.  One time when my son decided to go sit in the car and wait for someone to drive him somewhere,  Hank never let him out of his sight.  He also did some not-so-noble things like chew the arm off my couch and I still have some funny looking teeth marks in a few pairs of my shoes.

Sadly, Hank died at the age of two because of an inoperable tumor in his stomach.  Losing Hank broke my heart, and as I wrote my book, I found a little bit of Hank seeping into the pages.  So, when you read about Butch, Betsy’s mischievous Weimaraner, you just might see a little bit of our dear Hank.

Till Dirt Do Us Part Cover Reveal

Ladies and Gentlemen. Boys and Girls. I give you the cover for Till Dirt Do Us Part!

My latest book is now available on Amazon. I hope you figured out from my earlier post this crime-solving adventure centers around the world of gardening. Yes, that’s Betsy’s dog Butch on the cover and some freshly constructed planting boxes. Now, what could go wrong with a bunch of dirt and seeds?

Not everything stays buried. When Betsy, a notorious brown thumb gets roped into a gardening contest sponsored by the Pecan Bayou Gazette, she finds herself digging up more than weeds. She is ridiculed by the garden club ladies, and now her heart breaks for a newly single mom whose world has just collapsed. The Happy Hinter is back so take some time to revisit the cozy little town Pecan Bayou, Texas. Grab a glass of sweet tea before you turn the dirt in the garden and sit a spell with all your favorite characters who dole out heartfelt caring and compassion with a side of humor. Till Dirt Do Us Part includes bonus recipes and helpful hints from Betsy’s column!
