Marian's book All the Pretty Brides is a 2019 Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence in Mystery/Suspense Finalist. Stay tuned, winners announced in July.
“ A self-described tough blonde from Brooklyn, Marian is the Amazon bestselling author of The Jake Carrington Mysteries, a gritty romantic suspense series.

As far back as she could remember, Marian loved to read. As a child, she was especially intrigued by the Daily News crime reports.

If a story still isn't screaming at me, I jump over to a writing prompt group I belong to and start on one of the prompts. By the time I finish the first paragraph, my own stories start communicating with me and my fingers fly across the key boards.(less)
Marian Lanouette I love my characters and their stories, but the best thing is traveling and meeting readers. It has been a wonderful few years and I never tire of it.

Another good addition to the series

I enjoyed daisies and destruction and that more characters are getting page time. Like the light house keeper and the new mayor. I'm also glad that Kate's story will head in a different direction.

I enjoyed the read

I always love how Nora Roberts digs so no deep into her characters that you feel you know them and when you reach the end you're a little disappointed because you want their story to continue. It's why I'm a huge fan of hers.
