“The Trouble with the Widows of Valentine Valley”

Now, before you get any ideas that the widows are the heroines of my new books—they’re not. They’re three elderly ladies, grandmothers to several of my heroes/heroine. They live in the Widows’ Boardinghouse, a restored Victorian home complete with wraparound porches and gingerbread trim, and work part-time at the bakery Sugar and Spice, wearing aprons that say, “We Put the Heat in Sweet.” They’ve perfected the art of cheating at cards, they sing a mean three-apart a capella, and one of them is famous for her tarot-card reading. They’re the main members of the Valentine Valley Preservation Fund, offering grants to keep their town picturesque and to help new shops flourish.

But…they just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Once, they chained themselves to a broken down old house that had been a mining town brothel. The mayor wanted to tear it down, but they claimed it stood for women’s history, since Chinese immigrant women had been the original prostitutes. At the grand opening of a toy story they’d help fund, they gave away free cap guns for kids and set off the too-sensitive smoke detectors. They stole an abused horse and backed up traffic for miles, just to stop the governor’s car and plead for more awareness of animal cruelty. They tried to lure investors to a boarded up old silver mine, hoping to turn it into a museum, by having a picnic the first warm day of spring. Then the snakes slithered out, sending guests shrieking away.

The widows get in even  more trouble in my two newest books. When they aren’t innocently “helping” a grandson get famous (THE COWBOY OF VALENTINE VALLEY), they’re secretly planning a protest just when the President’s son is getting married in town (A PROMISE AT BLUEBELL HILL). I promise, things are never dull when they’re around.

So, what kind of characters do you like in series books?

Valentine Valley Cover

THE COWBOY OF VALENTINE VALLEY (Jan 28th Release)

Welcome to Valentine Valley, where the cowboys have many talents and love is waiting around every corner . . .

Ever since a heated late-night kiss—that absolutely should not have happened—cowboy Josh Thalberg makes former Hollywood bad girl Whitney Winslow’s pulse beat faster. But when she decides to use his gorgeous leatherwork in her new upscale lingerie shop, Leather & Lace, she’s determined to keep their relationship strictly professional . . . even if she wants so much more.

Josh has never met a challenge he isn’t up for. Which is probably why he allowed Whitney to persuade him to take the sexy publicity photo that went viral—and now has every woman in America knocking down his door . . . every woman except the one he can’t get out of his head.

But how to convince a reformed bad girl that some rules are worth breaking?

Bluebell Cover

A PROMISE AT BLUEBELL HILL (Feb 25th Release)

Welcome to Valentine Valley, where romance blooms and love captivates even the most guarded of hearts . . .

From the moment Secret Service agent Travis Beaumont strides into the town and through the door of Monica Shaw’s flower shop, she feels a sizzle of attraction. After years of putting everyone else’s needs first, Monica is ready to grab hold of life. If she can just persuade the ultimate protector to let his own walls down for once . . .

The President’s son is getting married in Valentine Valley, and Travis should be avoiding all distractions . . . not fantasizing about a forthright, sexy-as-hell florist. Especially when she’s keeping secrets that could jeopardize his assignment. But just this once, Travis is tempted to put down the rulebook and follow his heart—right to Monica’s door.

Roses are red, violets are blue, and in Valentine Valley, love will always find you.

    I have yet to read one of your books even though they sound very good. I like small town romances because I have first-hand experience of them.
