Well, the first quarter of 2020 has certainly been a bit of a rollercoaster ride.  Currently, it feels a bit like we’re stuck at the top of the loop-de-loop.  Hopefully, the ride operators get their heads out of… the gearbox and get us down soon.  Meanwhile, I thought I’d do a bit of recapping and let everyone know what’s coming from me this year.

QUARTER 1An Unfamiliar Sea – if you missed my non-stop announcements about book 3 of The San Juan Island Mysteries please let me know you secret avoidance techniques because I’d like to employ those ninja skills against the nightly news and COVID-19.  An Unfamiliar Sea see’s our heroine Tish Yearly grappling with being a business owner and solving the murder of one of her new employees.  As usual her grandfather Tobias is there to provide steady support and sarcastic commentary.

Snap up book 1 – An Unseen Current – for .99 and then sail through books 2 and 3.
