First of all, my apologies for being gone so long. It’s planting time in the South & I’ve been super busy getting flowers & tomatoes planted. Back in the day, I planted big gardens and hope to again in years to come, but this year I’ve decided to settle for flowers and tomatoes.
Tomatoes because homegrown are so much better than anything store bought and flowers because just looking at them makes me happy. Here’s my philiosophy about flowers:
If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft
And from thy slender store
Two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one, and with the dole,
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.
Saadi (1184-?1283), Persian poet
So I like to plant something that feeds my bod and flowers to feed my soul.
Things are going swimmingly with Book 3 in the Forever Cowboys series. Not sure if I’ve mentioned it but this book features Maeve, who is our heroine’s sister from Book Two, The Color of Forever. Maeve was married briefly when her policeman husband was shot and killed by someone robbing a small mom and pop convenience store. That was more than a dozen years before this story opens and she has rarely even dated, much less thought about remarrying.
But a trip out to the mountains of Wyoming where her sister Samantha has settled with her new husband might just change all that. Once Maeve meets the handsome and oh-so-sexy cowboy rancher whose ranch borders Sam and Ben’s, her peaceful but loveless existence experiences a major upheaval.
Joe, our hero of this book, also married quite a few years ago and lost the young wife he adored early on in the marriage.
Can this widow and widower, each so devoted to the memory of the love they lost, find love again with each other?
This book, Two Times Forever, is scheduled to be published the last week of May. I hope you enjoy reading Maeve and Joe’s story as much as I’m enjoying writing it!
