Book news– an update

Book news!

First, I wanted to thank you all for your patience. I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything on the book front, and there have been a lot of questions about when my next book will be coming out. The short answer is that I’ve just started writing a new book and while I don’t have a release date yet, I will certainly post that information as soon as it’s available.

The longer answer is that this past year has been interesting–and challenging–for me, both as a writer and a working mom.

On the writing front, in the course of the past twelve months I’ve started and scrapped two books that simply weren’t working for me. This will be my tenth book, which is a milestone, and I think I got too focused on thinking that I wanted to do something bigger, or different, this time around. As a reader of both women’s fiction and thrillers, I started dabbling with ideas in those genres, but both times the book began to feel just . . . not “me.” And as much as I hate scrapping months of work–particularly since I’m a slow writer–at the end of the day, if I’m not feeling the story it’s time to walk away.

In addition to that, this has been a particularly busy year on the family front, and I’ve struggled to find balance as a working mom. I know I’m not unique in this struggle; it’s something many working parents deal with. As much as I love writing, there are times when other things take precedence. This past year, I’ve had to learn to accept that I can’t always do it all. As an extremely goal-oriented person, that’s a tough thing to acknowledge, but I’m getting there. Mostly. 😉

But enough about me… let’s talk about this book I’m writing! Third time’s the charm, right? While I’m not saying much about it yet, I can tell you that it’s a romantic comedy/contemporary romance. It’s a fun book, and I’m excited to dive in. And since I know you’ll ask: nope, it’s not an FBI/U.S. Attorney book. But I’m not straying too far from my roots–both the heroine and hero are lawyers. I promise to share more as the book progresses, so stay tuned! And thanks again for your patience and inquiries about my next book! It warms my heart to hear how excited you guys are for what comes next.

April book tour details!

Exciting news: I’m doing a book tour in April!  Below is a list of the cities I’ll be visiting. You can find out more about each event here. Extra bonus: many of these events involve complimentary cocktails. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to meeting many of you in person!


Revised cover blurb–THE THING ABOUT LOVE

We’ve made a few tweaks to the cover blurb for THE THING ABOUT LOVE. I wrote the original blurb before the book was finished, but now that it’s done, I felt that this blurb captured the tone better.  Book release date is April 18.  Available for pre-order at:

Barnes & Noble

Here you go:


The New York Times bestselling author of Suddenly One Summer blows the covers of two FBI agents who can’t hide who they are from each other . . .

FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and cocky Army Ranger clashed during their training at Quantico and gladly went their separate ways after graduating from the Academy. Six years later, the last thing either of them expects is to be assigned to work as partners in a high-profile undercover sting.

For both of them, being paired with a former rival couldn’t come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they’ll have to find a way to work together—a task that becomes even trickier when they’re forced to hole up at a romantic beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a lot more complicated. . .
