My new book is the first in a series set in the small town of Choteau, Montana.
Home Is Where the Heart Is — Book One of the Rocky Mountain Front Series
Mid-thirties photojournalist CJ Beck has been running from her past since she bolted from her family’s ranch on the Rocky Mountain Front after high school. Her life in a war zone means never having time to remember the pain, but a sniper’s bullet forces her to return to Montana and confront her demons.
As a teenager, CJ had everything she wanted—a loving home and steady boyfriend. Her father’s death on a lonely Montana highway was the beginning of the end of her girlhood dreams. She created a new image as a tough professional, avoiding her four brothers, family obligations, and any real commitment. But when a sniper’s bullet kills her husband in front of her, she’s sent back home to recover. What her bureau chief doesn’t know is that the belief she’s responsible for her husband’s death makes it impossible for her to take pictures.
The terms of her return to the front depends on a clean bill of health from a psychiatrist. CJ knows she needs a lot more than that if she’s ever to take a photo again. But when she’s forced to deal with the past, including a man who wants a second chance at a relationship, as well as new threats to the family inheritance, she may face her greatest challenge of all.
Home Is Where the Heart Is is a story about of a young woman who must confront her family’s past and help secure its future to discover what real happiness means. If you enjoy women’s fiction with romantic elements, you’ll enjoy this book.
I’m continuing to re-release the California Coast Romance series previously published by Crimson Romance.
