Today is cover reveal day for HE WILL BE MY RUIN, released first and exclusively over on the USA Today HEA blog.
The idea for this book hit me about a year ago. It was just a tiny thread of an idea, really, and over the next eight months, it grew into a complex weave of puzzle pieces and intrigue. This is the book that I am most proud of writing to date. It's also the book I'm most nervous to release to date.
I'll warn you that it is different from my other work. While I still need my characters to have some semblance of a HEA, this one is on the bittersweet side. But it's still MY writing, with my love of complex characters and twisty plots, so, if you love my writing, I think you'll enjoy the adventure this book takes you on.
Thank you to Judith, Sarah, and the amazing team at Atria Books for believing in this story. I'm excited for everyone to meet Maggie, Jace, Grady, Ruby, Hans, Doug, and several other personalities.
Stay tuned for some more exciting developments with this book. Hopefully I'll be able to share them with you, soon.


A woman who almost had it all . . . On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation . . .

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

Now imagine that in HARD COVER! Because that's how this book is releasing in February :D I can't wait! My first hard cover book (in North America).

Chasing River (Burying Water #3) Release Day!

Happy release day to Chasing River!
I arrived in Dublin on July 7th, exactly one year ago today. It was my first trip to Ireland, and we spent the evening checking out St. Stephens Green and Grafton Street like the tourists we were. I didn't actually make the connection in dates until I began typing this post. So, there you have it. I visited Ireland, and one year to the day, I am releasing a book based in Ireland :D
As always, thank you so much to Judith and the amazing team I work with at Atria Books, my editor, Sarah, my agent, Stacey, and KP at Inkslinger PR for making this release day possible and fun.
Most of all though, thank you to the amazing bloggers and readers who keep picking up my books. As unrealistic as it is to hope, I hope you ALL enjoy this story.

Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin.  Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub.  Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him.  And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.

Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.
