More ‘Mailbox Mysteries’ coming your way!

I'm excited to announce the next two titles in the "Mailbox Mysteries" series! The novels follow mail carrier Kate Duncan as she returns home from Chicago to make a new life in Eagle River.

The Path to Golden Days picks up shortly after the end of Book 1. Kate's settling into her farmhouse, and looking forward to all the fall fun that's headed her way. But when a neighbor's barn is destroyed

by fire, she begins to wonder which of her hometown's residents can, and can't, be trusted. Look for this title in January or February.

The Lane That Leads to Christmas will be full of holiday spirit! I don't have all the details worked out yet for Book 3, but it's safe to say that the Eagle River community is upended when an heirloom Nativity display goes missing from a local church. Can Kate help track down the sentimental set before the holiday bells ring? This festive book will be out sometime in fall 2023.

As always, the books will be available in Kindle, paperback, hardcover and large-print paperback editions. I'll let everyone know as soon as Book 2 is available for pre-order.

In the meantime ...

If you haven't read the first book in the new series, The Route That Takes You Home, check it out! Melinda, Karen and Auggie (of course, he noses his way into everything!) turn up in Book 1, as well as several of our other friends from the "Growing Season" series.

With autumn's chill settling in and the holidays just around the corner, it's the perfect time to try out some hearty, tasty recipes. Head over to the "extras" tab of the website and sample the goodies featured in the "Growing Season" books.

Thanks for reading!
