New Project

It seems like I'm always starting a new project. It might be something around the house, like decorating a room or designing my garden. Right now I'm getting started on One Foot Out the Door, the last of my three-book Uptown Belles series that's being published by Charisma House.

The first book, Dixie Belle, came out this past spring, and the second one, Trouble in Paradise, will release next spring. All three books are set (mostly) in New York City, and they feature heroines from the South who fall in love with big-city men. 

Here are the blurbs:

Dixie BelleCissy Hillwood needs to leave her Alabama hometown to escape her abusive boyfriend, so she accepts an offer to work for her Uncle Forest in New York City. Sparks fly when she meets Forest’s fiercest competitor, Tom Jenkins, but her uncle does not approve of their budding romance. Tom is a Christian at night and on weekends, but he seems to leave his faith at the door when he gets to work. Yet the more time he spends with Cissy, the more he begins to question and reevaluate his business ethics. As Cissy tries to keep her relationship with Tom a secret from her Uncle Forest, misunderstandings mount and conflicts arise, forcing Cissy to make a decision. Which should she choose: loyalty to her uncle or love for Tom?

Trouble in ParadiseCharlene Pickford finds herself in a pickle after landing the job of her dreams in New York City. Her boss might be attractive, but when it becomes obvious that he's hiding some deep, very dark secret, she feels an overwhelming urge to flee back to Georgia to help her parents … even though they've made it clear that they don't want her hovering. Will Charlene be able to make a decision that brings her peace?

One Foot Out the Door - Bethann Russell loses her job, so when her elderly aunt falls and breaks her hip, she’s the most logical family member to move up to New York to be the caretaker. When attorney Judd Baxter arrives to help Bethann’s aunt with her legal affairs, the attraction between him and Bethann is obvious. As Bethann gets to know Judd, she discovers part of his job is to handle the legal affairs of companies that downsize. This is too close to home for Bethann since she loved the job she lost, so she decides to return to Mississippi as soon as her aunt recovers. But her aunt has other ideas and makes matchmaking her new mission.
