I'm so sorry. I just saw this message in here (yikes!)
I released In Her Wake a few months after FWTF, which is a TTB prequel, told from Trent's POV. That is it for the TTB series as far as I can see right now. I have an entire other series (BURYING WATER) out, a few standalones, and another romantic suspense series to write. Down the road, I may decide to write a TTB spin-off.
