Just wrote a review of Debbi Mack's newest crime novel in the Sam McRae series. It's called, Riptide, although the title could change. I slammed that sucker down in two days. One of the most enjoyable reads I've had all year.
It's not out yet, though, so I can't release the review. I got the ARC. Yep, I'm going to brag about that. This is a novel worth being a dick about.
Until then, here's…Continue

I’ll try to give you some examples of…Continue

My cozy mystery, SOMEBODY DOESN'T LIKE SARAH LEIGH, is available for Kindle and will come in other formats in the spring of 2012. Set in northern Lower Michigan, it’s an intriguing mystery and more than that. It's also about what can happen to friendships between women.
We've all seen movies and read books about those lifelong, girl-to-woman relationships, and they are wonderful. But what we often don't consider is that some of those friendships go wrong over time. It's hard to say…Continue
