The Journey Home, 2nd edition

The Journey Home Front Cover

In the midst of the Great Depression, Cassandra (Cass) Scheimer is trying to keep the family farm afloat in the Big Woods of Wisconsin…alone.  As a local midwife and struggling backwoods doctor, she certainly doesn’t need more mouths to feed. 

Stephanie Evans is a widow enceinte with her third child.  She accepts a kind strangers offer of marriage in exchange for keeping house for him…but he never shows up to claim her.  While dealing with unrequited guilt and the desperation of impoverished motherhood, falling in love with Cass is the least of her worries.

For Cass, having been in love with a woman once before, she feels it couldnt possibly happen twice.  When it does, Cass is convinced the love cannot be returned.  Can she and Stephanie keep it hidden from the prying eyes of children and the meddling neighbors in this small rural community?    

Can Cass deal with the guilt she feels over her brothers injury, an injury that prevents him from doing his duty for their country?  Joining the Nursing Corps may put too much stress on her newfound relationship with Stephanie.  The woman who returns from the war and the woman left behind on the farm are not the same people who once fell in love.  Can they return to being lovers after years spent apart?  Destiny put them in each other’s path, but World War II has them tearing apart. 

This is The Journey Home.

Vetted by K’Anne Meinel

 

Vetted Final Cover

Allyssa is a young college student living her life to please her upper-crust family who want her to take business courses, join her father’s business, and marry the “right” man.  Allyssa loves animals and yearns to take courses that speak to her heart, but her family are deaf to her pleas and she is unable or unwilling to stand up to them.

Fiona is an older, more established woman; a veterinarian working towards the goal of starting her own large animal practice.  When a young woman arrives on her doorstep one night carrying a dog she may have fatally injured with her car, Fiona is thrown for a loop.

Vetted—a life that neither woman anticipated, but each learns they want desperately.

Will their families, the fates, and rustlers finally bring these women to their knees?  The only way they can survive is to stand strong together, but are they both ready to fight for what they want?  Only time will tell….

the-outsider-cover

Joy Parker had the perfect childhood.  Doted on by her parents, she couldn’t imagine her childhood any different.  As a child and later a young adult, she’s ignored by her much older siblings, made to feel the outsider…until a tragedy occurs, altering her life in ways she couldn’t possibly have imagined. 

The next few years of her life are vastly different from her parents’ hopes and dreams for her.  Then suddenly, another life-altering event changes the course of her life and she must make decisions she never dreamt possible.  Winning the largest lottery in Wisconsin history opens the flood gates of possibility and means Joy must again decide which direction to take with the rest of her life. 

What would you do if you won $341,726,178.10 after taxes?  Come along for the ride as we discover what Joy Parker decides to do with it….

Malice Masterpieces IV

Book 16 MACABRE MALICE

Framed for a crime she didn’t commit by a group of corrupt cops that are out to ‘get her’, Kathy battles to retain her freedom.  She receives an unexpected bit of help from an Internal Affairs cop set on putting away all dirty cops.  Certain that Kathy has been targeted by this unscrupulous group, Special Agent Linda Miller helps Kathy and Portia prove Kathy’s innocence and in the process, finds herself attracted to Kathy.

Can feelings of gratitude and admiration turn to love for the widowed Kathy?  She can never reveal her full past to this cop she finds herself drawn to. Can Linda accept that there are parts of Kathy’s life she can never know about or will her investigative skills get in the way of their happiness?

Constant reminders of, and comparisons to, the woman she first loved make it hard for Kathy to commit herself fully to their budding romance.  How can Kathy move on when the past keeps sending reminders to let her know it isn’t done with her?

Book 17 MARINATING MALICE

It is time for Kathy to move on, but her thoughts want to keep her in the past.  Her wife has been dead over eighteen months.  She has a girlfriend who would like to become her lover.  Can she finally put the past behind her and move on?

Trust is the issue.  Clues to Kathy and Alice’s past seem to intrigue new girlfriend, Special Agent Linda Miller, a little too much.  Maybe it’s the cop in her?  Is Kathy ready to overlook this and take the next step?

Things seem to be conspiring to drive Kathy crazy.  Is she imagining the clues that point to her wife being alive?  Her friends assure her she isn’t seeing what she thinks she is. Could it all be in her mind?  Is it possible her wife is still alive, or is she only clinging to hope?  Her thoughts are holding her prisoner…

Book 18 MACERATING MALICE

Alice is ALIVE!

Where has she been?  What is the explanation for the missing months?

As Kathy listens she is horrified to realize what has happened to the woman she once called the love of her life.

How she survived begins to unfold as she describes the terrors that she has endured the last two years…

Book 19 MINACIOUS MALICE

As Alice continues with her tale of where she has been for the last couple of years, Kathy realizes the tally of deaths is adding up.  The same reasons that caused their separation are still there.  Can she forgive, much less forget, why they broke up in the first place?

Murder, planned murder especially, takes time.  Alice must feel ‘justified’ in who she targets.  She also must take into account that Sasha is not only a witness, but an accomplice to what Alice must do.  Sasha will be shocked as she realizes what Alice is capable of.  Sasha must learn to ‘appreciate’ Alice and her ‘skills.’

Follow along as Sasha and Alice begin the hunt for those who had imprisoned them….

Book 20 MEDDLESOME MALICE

As she listens to the horrors that Alice and Sasha endured at the hands of their captors, Kathy realizes she has to know, she MUST know everything Alice has been up to.  She wants to understand what kept them apart these past years…beyond her own anger at what her wife is capable of.

As the gruesome details of Alice and Sasha’s story unfold, Kathy asks herself ‘Does this justify what they did and are doing to those people?  Does it explain their prolonged absence from their families?’

Follow along as Alice and Sasha go in for the kill!  Learn how they carefully plot their revenge against the people who took so much from their lives…and take just as much and more from them in return. 

Their lives, their victims’ lives, will never be the same!
