Oh, my—I think I went too far again!

I fall victim to the “buffet syndrome” every spring.  Everything looks so beautiful and perfect at the garden center, so away I go—happily loading one cart—then two, with everything that catches my eye. Pretties!

And then I get home and realize that I actually need to plant everything. With gnats buzzing in my ears and eyes, and the sun growing warmer with every hour.

These plants are for the front of the house…in back, I’ve already unloaded five rose bushes, two dozen geraniums, and a dozen red diplodenia. It was fun and games buying them all, but now the work begins—while shielded with my glamorous gnat net. 

Do you plant flowers each spring on your deck or in a garden? What are some of your favorites?

Do you enjoy reading clean, wholesome romantic suspense novels in small-town settings?

I have a new book out in my Southwest Peril series! SILENT DECEPTION is available on Amazon at this linkHere is a quick description:

Has she just made a terrible mistake by returning home?

Single mother Kristin Cantrell has moved back to the Texas Hill Country, needing a fresh start. She never expected to find that Ryan Gallagher had returned as well. Their painful past goes way back, and neither ever expected to see each other again.

She’s also shocked when she learns that most folks in town still despise her late father and wish she had never returned. And now one of them has her in his crosshairs…

Are old memories best forgotten, or can she and Ryan help each other change the past–and keep her young son safe?

Are you counting the days until October?

Three cheers for September, because now we’re that much closer to October, when cooler weather and autumn colors (hopefully) arrive. The start of “sweater weather” makes me so happy! How about you? Are you a summer beach or an autumn person? I won’t ask you about winter—here in the Upper Midwest, winters can be just… Read More
