the cover of my new book, Deceived.
It's due to be released in November.
Here's the back cover blurb:
A storm rages outside the unassuming Los Angeles house, while within, something sinister lurks. A murderer stalks their victim, unaware of a witness to the horrific crime: awakened from a deep, drug-induced slumber, Tara Kelly hears voices in the next room. Struggling to focus through her sleep medication, the young woman helplessly observes her aunt's murder. Now, she's a loose end that the killer cannot ignore . . .
Tara is aided by a family friend as she does the only thing she can: disappear. Fleeing to the security of a remote Idaho ranch, Tara finds herself under the guard of a handsome rancher Joseph White Eagle. Her unwitting protector takes his role seriously, going so far as to claim that Tara is his fiancee. But even as their relationship deepens, he struggles to see past Tara's similarity to his late wife, a painful reminder of the past. When a series of accidents threaten Tara's life, it becomes clear that her attempt to outrun danger has been in vain. The killer will stop at nothing to find Tara, and Joseph will do anything to protect her--even if it means unraveling secrets that will have devastating consequences for them both . . .
This novel has been a long time in the making. Over the next few weeks I'm going to share the research that went into this book from the cattle drive, the camping trip to Little Lost River, and the trip to Ireland (with a special spooky post from my ghostly bus tour through Dublin). I can hardly wait.
Oh, the places you'll go and the people you'll meet. Don't you love research? What is the most fun you've had doing research, whether for a novel, for your family history, or just out of curiosity?
