Marble Surface

What do you do when you're a writer and you finish a series - but the ideas keep coming for that same fictional town? You write a spinoff series! I had to do that because I fell in love with the town of Big Rock and the people in it.


The town has grown and more businesses have sprung up to accommodate the growth. Unfortunately, the growth has been mostly men. And they want women!


Harriet Smithers, a force to be reckoned with who has her own spicy desires she considers to the be the secret of her marital happiness, is the president of the Ladies' Aid Society. She's convinced the society needs to find wives for these men or they'll leave town. Thus is born their mail order bride efforts…

The Ladies Aid Society is determined to find brides for the bachelors who have moved to their town in the last two or three years. Their first attempt is for Angus Kelly, a red-haired giant of an Irishman. The society members have written to all their old friends across the country, and one willing respondent seems to be perfect for Angus: Nessa O’Shea.

At the same time, Detectives Deacon Snow and his brother have been hired by a bank in Rawlins to search for the criminals who stole a shipment of newly minted gold coins intended for three different banks. On the way to the San Francisco mint, with help from Deacon’s sister-in-law Lilac Indigo, they befriend a young woman named Tillie Youngblood. Tillie is headed for San Francisco, too. No one could have foretold the unexpected connection or seen the effect Tillie would have on all of them in such a short time.
