I'm so glad you enjoyed The Fix Up. Miriam's story comes next in the series, and I'm having a fun time writing it. I'm actually not certain yet what the third book in the series will be, so if Parker's story starts percolating in the back of my brain, that may be it. Thanks for the interest, and happy reading!(less)

Awww, thanks so much! Sorry for the delay -- I actually just learned this feature existed on Goodreads. Go figure!

I don't currently have any plans to write a follow up to About that Fling. However, I have two more books contracted with Montlake Romance, and I think you'll find they're both a lot more similar to About that Fling than anything else I've written. Let it Breathe comes out in March, and it definitely has some of those darker undertones like About that Fling. Same goes for the book that comes out in September (working title is Spice of Life, but that may change). All of those books deal with tricky issues like divorce or alcoholism or infidelity or death or.....er, this isn't sounding like romantic comedy, is it?!

That's actually what I love about writing these kinds of books. I get to pick a tough subject (or multiple tough subjects) and find ways to discover the humor in and around it.

Thanks for reading, and have a great week!(less)

This morning I sat in bed with a chipped gray mug in my palms as I watched the sun rising pink and orange over a Marlborough vineyard bursting with wine grapes.
For the record, there was tea in my mug, not Sauv Blanc.
It’s March 23 here in New Zealand, but March 22 back home in the U.S., and there’s something very special about each of those dates. Researching Let It Breathe six years ago.

Protector for Hire by Tawna Fenske
“Stop,” he murmured, or at least that’s what he meant to say. It came out sounding more like “Yes,” which probably wasn’t the same thing at all.”

Protector for Hire by Tawna Fenske
"Sheridan. MacArthur. Grant. Schwarzkopf. You’d think I was talking about American military men and in a way I am, but I’m not. These four siblings have made my life immensely more enjoyable over the last year or so. From the first book to the late..." Read more of this review »
