DeAnna Julie Dodson has always been an avid reader and a lover of storytelling, whether on the page, the screen or the stage. This, along with her keen interest in history and her Christian faith, shows in her tales of love, forgiveness and triumph over adversity. A fifth-generation Texan, she makes her home north of Dallas with four spoiled cats and, when not writing, spends her free time quilting, cross stitching and watching NHL hockey. Her first books, In Honor Bound, By Love Redeemed and To Grace Surrendered, are a trilogy of medieval romances and have just been redesigned and freshly edited for Kindle. She is also the author of the contemporary mystery, Letters in the Attic, and has recently signed on to write another Annie's Attic My ...more

In this one, Drew and Madeline go up to the Yorkshire moors to investigate a murder. The moody Gothic feel of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights as well as a touch of The Hound of the Baskervilles was my literary inspriation for this one, and I'm having a great time writing it.(less)

A Husband for Christmas


 


A note from Gail:


When I considered starting a new series, I weighed ideas that caught my interest. Though I often write about small towns, I wanted to try something even more intimate and the idea of residence on the same street in a small town. I prefer using places I know, and though I had never been to Owosso, Michigan, which is a small town, I made arrangements to...

“It’s what my missus says. She says even God don’t make us come to Him if we’re dead set on living with swine, like the Good Book says about the prodigal son.”
Julianna Deering, Rules of Murder

“It’s as if the fragrance of the prayers of all those hundreds of years still lingers here in these stones and in these pews, saying God still bends down to hear and answer.”
Julianna Deering, Rules of Murder

“Any display of interest, I can assure you, Nicholas, has been manufactured by dear, sweet, acquisitive Mrs. Pomphrey-Hughes and no other. I'm sure she's a great reader of the classics and well aware of that 'truth universally acknowledged.' And knowing me to be single and in possession of a good fortune, who better to mend my most piteous want of a wife than her own daughter, Daphne?”
Julianna Deering, Rules of Murder

“Uncle Mason has been awfully good to me. My faith meant a great deal to me too after I was left an orphan,"
"I can understand how you felt." He looked up again, making his expression exaggeratedly sincere. "At the tender age of nine, I was left an orphan."
"You were not," she said with a giggle.
"I was," he insisted. "But, being so young, I hadn't a clue what to do with it, so I sent it back.”
Julianna Deering, Rules of Murder

“Dash it all, there should be more clues. There should be just acres of suspects and something like a hollowed-out table leg or uneaten biscuit that's the key to the whole thing. And there should be a mysterious Russian or a man with a false beard."
Nick sighed. "Not even a sinister Chinaman to suspect, more's the pity.”
Julianna Deering, Rules of Murder
