Elizabeth lives in Wisconsin with her understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a sassy Labrador. When she isn't writing, working, or being a mom, she's sleeping

I write in my head a lot before I sit down at the computer, so I could be exercising, cooking, walking, or trying to sleep and my mind will be puzzling over the correct words to use.(less)

Then I was watching one of my favorite movies, BBC's version of And Then There Was None, and something just clicked. The story will be a departure from my other books, as it will be more murder mystery than romance, but there will definitely be romance and a satisfying ending.(less)

The plot was fine for me overall. I think it was the writing that didn't hold my interest. As an editor, I know I'm reading a good book when I don't pick apart sentence flow, voice, characters, etc. All of that falls away, and I get caught up in the ...more
