To Catch A Cheat is coming!

Lots of news to report. I do keep things more up to date on my facebook page and Dana will be uploading lots of new reviews which are, thankfully, very good indeed.
First, there will be a new To Catch book, just signed the contracts. Tentative title, To Catch A Cheat. Here’s the basic storyline:
Talk about another bad day. Lindy Kellerman is back and this time her wedding plans are on hold thanks to a dead body in her synagogue. Who would whack a harmless caretaker and why? More bad news. The killer has to be someone Lindy knows. The Sunday school teacher? The synagogue president? The rabbi? Detective Fraser MacKinnon warns Lindy to let him solve the crime but with a killer in the neighborhood and Lindy at the epicenter of the local gossip mill, she’s determined to find out whodunit before the killer strikes again. Murder, romance, mayhem and humor run riot in To Catch A Cheat.

I had a lot of fun writing this one and hope you will enjoy it too. I will post updates about release as soon as I know but don’t hold your breath waiting

Second, Hanky Panky is now on sale at Amazon. The earliest reviews confirm my own opinion, the funniest Liberty Heights book yet.

Take a peek at Hanky Panky, Book 3, The Liberty Heights series. coming in December

“This is ridiculous! I can’t stay at her house with you and pretend to be your wife!”
Steam all but rose from Dana’s head. Of all the insane things to happen, Grandma Baumgart insisted Dana was married to Hank and refused to listen to any explanation. On the contrary, she’d gotten all wound up and yelled at Hank.
“You should have paid attention to your grandfather. He knew how to keep me happy, and we were married for fifty years. You’re not giving her enough attention.”
The twitch in her lips indicated exactly what kind of attention she meant, and Dana blushed up to the roots of her hair. Explaining to the doctor hadn’t been the slightest bit of help.
“She’s physically fine. Just a residual headache. Normally, the only thing I would tell you to do is watch for any change in the headache or nausea,” Doctor Sumner explained when Hank hauled Dana off to his consulting room, leaving Hayley and Ellie to baby-sit Grandma.
“I performed a Mini-Mental Exam when she was admitted, and her score was fine. Actually, outstanding, for a woman her age. Why she thinks you two are married, I don’t know. That could be residual damage from the blow to the head.”
“How long is it going to last?”
Doctor Sumner shrugged. “Brain injury isn’t something we completely understand. It’s possible that when you get her home, her memory will jog, and she’ll come to her senses. They’re quite intact other than this blip.”
“Blip? You call this a blip? Married to him?”
“Hey, take it easy. You could do worse than me, you know,” Hank said with a glare.
Dana snorted. “How far were you planning on taking this?”
A wicked grin flashed on Hank’s face. “Interested? Grandma said to give you plenty of hanky-panky, and I’m not the one walking around ready for action without underwear.”
If a hole opened in the floor, Dana would have been thankful. Nothing could have topped yesterday as the worst day in her life—maybe in history. Then, this had to happen.
The doctor coughed, but Dana saw the color in his cheeks.
“I’m going to discharge her. Let’s see how she does at home. Your, um, wife, can give me a call once a day and let me know how things are going.”
“I’m not his wife!” Dana screeched. She didn’t care who heard her. This wascrazy, and this doctor didn’t plan to do a darned thing about it, just dump the whole thing in her lap.
He handed Dana a business card with his phone number. “No more
skateboards. I don’t know what she was thinking.” He shook his head and walked out the door without another word.
Dana glared at Hank, who eyed her. She didn’t miss the humor lines etched around his eyes. “Think this is funny? I don’t. What am I supposed to do if she never comes to her senses?”
Hank shrugged. “Get a joint bank account, I guess. I make pretty good money, lucky for you.”
Dana gritted her teeth. She could feel a migraine starting, and all thanks to Hank Axelrod, the world’s biggest lunatic.

More on Animal Crackers

I’m getting a lot of feedback on the cover of Animal Crackers and it’s all great—people seem to love the fun tone of it and so do I. As soon as I get the okay from the publishers, I will post an excerpt for you to enjoy. We’re finishing up the second Liberty Heights book, The Life of the Party and the third one, Hanky-Panky, should be out late this year. I hope to get another one done because I just love Liberty Heights! So do my editors which is always good to hear. So what’s Animal Crackers about anyway?

Karma is working overtime. First, Manhattan workaholic Hayley Weaver is fired, then she’s kicked out of her apartment. Hayley needs a job, and fast. Any job. House-sitting a movie star’s home sounds like the answer to her prayers. Too bad nobody told Hayley the house has more critters than the Beverly Hillbillies and even worse, the house is in New Jersey-the one place Hayley swore never to set foot in again. Then there’s local veterinarian Jake Marx who’s desperate to meet a woman he hasn’t known since kindergarten. With Jake on Hayley’s speed dial to corral all the animals, it’s a cinch he’s going to try to corral Hayley too even if everyone in Liberty Heights thinks Hayley is an exotic dancer who should teach their pole dancing class in the fire station.
Animal Crackers and Liberty Heights where anything and everything can happen.
