summer + nature = redwoods

redwoods

No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe.

~ John Steinbeck

Summer along the California coast is inspirational, nothing more so than the Redwood National Forest, enjoying it so much I’m making it a feature in the next series.

#5 Skye Cree: Truth in the Bones

Skye Cree is after a madman like no other. He’s cunning, smart, dangerous, a serial killer who preys on entire families. He’s gone undetected for five years until an analytical nerd stumbles on a pattern of murders across the U.S. with no apparent connections.

Slowly Skye begins to connect the dots. But with lives at stake, will she be able to figure out the link in time to catch this psychopath before he adds more victims to his tally? Or will she get outfoxed and jeopardize everything she loves one last time? Everything hinges on trying to end the reign of a serial killer who has nothing to lose. Will Skye take him down and find justice for the families or has she met her match?

Kindle Book Review names Sea Glass Cottage Finalist

Romance is a tough category to write. I’m thrilled that Sea Glass Cottage has been recognized by the Kindle Book Review as a winning story. Thank you to everyone who made this possible. It’s such an honor!!

You can only run so far before you have to stand and fight. 

Mysterious Isabella Rialto comes to Pelican Pointe to find solace, shelter, and quiet. What she gets instead is Thane Delacourt, an ex NFL jock who’s come back home to raise his little boy. Sparks fly between them from the onset. Thane’s wary of making another relationship mistake. And he has Jonah to think about. But that’s nothing compared to Isabella’s past. Will their love be enough to ensure a future together? Or will everything crumble around them in a  deadly game of obsession?

Pelican Pointe announcement

Coming this summer

Lavender Beach!!!

As promised, I know you’ve all been patient for news about the next book in the Pelican Pointe series. I’m happy to announce that I’ve decided to pair Cooper Richmond, the owner of Layne’s Trains—who has such a sad backstory—with a newcomer in town called Eastlyn Parker. Eastlyn is dealing with her own pain and anguish from a tragic incident. (What kind of incident I’m leaving that as part of the mystery until the release)

In my heart I believe you’ll all love Eastlyn as much as I’m loving her. I think you’ll like digging deeper into the two tortured souls, Cooper and Eastlyn, who have, so far in life, resisted reaching out toward any lasting happiness at all. In fact, neither one thinks they’re worth loving. They really don’t  consider themselves candidates for any real chance at love. And that I find heartbreaking.

As always, I’m leaving out a lot of detail. 🙂 Sorry about that.

The characters are pretty much carved out by now and the manuscript is coming along nicely. I’m shooting for a release date for sometime in July. My cover artist Jess Johnson has finished the cover.

So as you can tell I have a lot to do until then. I’m sorry I’m not out on the blog much or on Facebook but I’m happier at my desk, cranking out a story. My world of writing is about as exciting as my life ever gets. So it looks like I need to get back to work. 🙂

As always, happy reading to you all!!

Vickie

Skye Cree is back!

Now on Sale!

His Garden of BonesHGoB_cover_draft3

Not every flower is grown with love.

Years earlier, teenage girls began to vanish off the streets of Seattle. Now, they’re turning up dead, their mutilated bodies left in prominent locations around the city. Skye Cree suspects there are more. But connecting the sordid crimes will take dedication and skill on the part of her entire team, especially when the killer begins to morph into someone else. Will the hunter be able to stop a psychotic and cruel killer in time to save other victims from the same disturbing fate? Or will the killer find a way to outsmart Skye?
