The Silver Dagger Scriptorium – Excerpt
No, Midge! She turned her back on her bed. You need to enjoy tonight. You finally have a date to the ball. She went to the window and peeked through the blinds. Night after night for most of her adult life, she’d watched Georgia and Lula leave for social engagements. Georgia to her charity functions and dinners with her husband’s doctor friends and their wives, and Lula to neighborhood gatherings that Midge was never invited to. The other wives stopped including her in their backyard barbecues and holiday cocktail parties after her divorce. She was the pariah, the woman no one wanted to associate with for fear their husbands might be tempted by the attractive young divorcée.
Nicole’s Book Musings – Excerpt
As a child, Lizbet had worshipped her mother and her older sister. They were the center of her universe—the sun and the moon. Her father was a star, serving little purpose except to brighten her nights when he came home from work. Lula, Brooke, and Lizbet went everywhere together.
Hearts & Scribbles – Excerpt
Where in the world was her address book? She hopped up out of her chair, took a step, and then leaned against the table when the room began to spin. Spots appeared before her eyes and her skin felt clammy despite the heat. She was groping for the chair to sit back down when everything suddenly went black.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books? I don’t have a simple answer to this question. I’m inspired by many different things—places, people, relationships. I create a character, toss them into a situation, and let them show me the way. I never know how a book will end when I write the first chapter.
It’s All About the Romance – Excerpt
Standing at her kitchen window, Georgia watched Lula and her precious daughter poke around in the garden. Her own sons rarely came home for a visit. She had to travel to Boston in order to see them. During her last trip over Thanksgiving, they had bounced her back and forth like a basketball. Both had followed in their father’s footsteps. Richard was a cardiologist and Martin a resident at Mass General. Neither had time for her and made it apparent her presence was a hindrance.

Falling Leaves – Excerpt
As the elevator doors closed on her clients, whisking them away to the fourth floor, the doors on the elevator to her right parted to reveal a middle-aged man and a much younger woman locked in a passionate embrace, mouths pressed together and arms groping at one another. As though sensing an audience, the couple separated and stepped out of the elevator. Midge recognized the man as Lang Murdaugh, but the woman was definitely not his wife.
Brooke Blogs – Excerpt
That went well, Georgia thought to herself as she turned off the oven and sank down to the nearest stool at the island. She should’ve texted him about dinner. He led a busy life. His job didn’t end when he left the operating room. He was responsible for his patients’ recovery as well. They counted on him to adjust their meds, order any necessary tests, and release them from the hospital when they were well enough to go home. She shouldn’t expect him to drop everything because she wanted to have a discussion about their plans for the Fourth of July.
Cinnamon Cindy’s Book Blog – Excerpt
Lula heard her cell phone ringing in a distant part of the house. She froze, listening. But her oldest daughter had already hung up by the time Lula located the phone wedged between the sofa cushions. Brooke knew better than to call her on her cell phone. Lula despised modern technology. She preferred paperback copies over e-books. She wanted her mail delivered by the mailman. And she would rather read a road map than listen to an automated voice on a GPS instructing her where to go.
Sylv.net – Excerpt
Midge had a physical advantage over most women their age. She’d never carried an eight-pound baby to term or nursed it for six months afterward. Even though Georgia aspired to have a toned figure like Midge’s, she didn’t envy her friend her inability to have children.

And that’s only the beginning as unraveling secrets threaten to alter their friendship forever.
