Leah is a worrier, a self-described neurotic who tends to imagine the worst-case scenario in response to brewing troubles. She hasn’t decided if this leaning toward the dark side is what draws her to write edgy, gritty stories, or if the suspenseful mysteries and gothic romances that filled her childhood bookshelves somehow imprinted their shadows on her psyche. Despite (or maybe because of) this propensity for infusing her fiction with murder and mayhem, she still craves those happily-ever-after endings and the romance of everlasting love.

Over the years she has discovered too that she enjoys delving into the deepest of human emotions—love and hate, bravery and cowardice, joy and despair—and how we, as human beings, relate to each other. H

We pick up Anna and David's story about three months after the first book ends and learn more about Anna's family, how they grew up, and what the future holds for their way of life. And of course there's some mayhem thrown in to keep things interesting.

After that, Jackson Yates and Rachael Sullivan (from Adrienne's Ghost) are back. The story is just in its initial glimmer, but I promise to take my time on it and give this couple the time they need. (Thanks for all who commented that the first book felt rushed! I appreciate that feedback.)(less)

Dear gods of technology, back off!

 


I took today off from my regular job so I could get some things done —



Run to the post office (which isn’t open during hours that any working person can conveniently get to);
Have lunch with hubby (who also took the day off);
Clean my office (“clean” being open to interpretation); and
Make a hotel reservation for a short trip we’re taking next month.

All went smoothly until we got home after lunch out. I booted up the laptop to make the...month.

“The road to Manderley lay ahead. There was no moon. The sky above our heads was inky black. But the sky on the horizon was not dark at all. It was shot with crimson, like a splash of blood. And the ashes blew towards us with the salt wind from the sea.”
Daphne DuMaurier, Rebecca
