New Book – First Details!

My next book is going to be a modern day book set in small town Tennessee! I am excited about this book – I love this story and these characters, and I think you will, too. So what is the book about? I know we all like to categorize books, but this one is a little hard to do. Is there romance? Yes, subtly. Is there mystery? A little. Is there a Women’s Fiction Element? To a certain degree. Is it a commentary on small town Southern life? In many respects. Is there humor? Yes. Basically, it’s just life. I dug deep for this one, striving to strip it of anything inauthentic. I believe you will love it from cover to cover!

Without further ado, the title of the book is Thank God for Mississippi.

And here is the synopsis:

MISSISSIPPI WHITSON knows two things: she has to find a new job, and she has to find one soon.  When her elderly employer, Hammondsville’s district attorney, dies, the plan is to smooth the transition for his replacement and then move on.  The plan is not for the replacement to be her employer’s grandson, an out-of-towner who doesn’t know the first thing about surviving small town Southern life.

WHEN HE ASKS FOR HELP, she can’t refuse, being such a good person.  But what started as a brief detour on her life plan may end up costing her more in terms of time, criminal drama, and matters of the heart than she ever expected.

A LOVING, humorous, yet insightful look at life in small town Tennessee, Thank God for Mississippi is the next must-have read for fans of many genres of fiction.
