News — A Great Find for Readers! is a great website for pointing people toward new books to read based on their interests. Thousands of authors have shared their 5 favorite books around a topic, theme, or mood. I was invited to participate, and I happily agreed!

Since my novels are set in Victorian England, it was easy for me to decide on a topic. You can find my list of “The best books for unique insights on the Victorians.”


From there, feel free to branch out in any direction, whether searching for fiction or nonfiction.

Why read North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell?

Type a topic, favorite book, or favorite author into the search field and see where it takes you.

One word of warning: your “to-be-read” pile may increase substantially!

I have already traveled happily down a number of rabbit holes.

If you like the website, please help spread the word,
and tell your friends and fellow readers about it!

A few thoughts for the holidays

My recent post at More to Life Christian magazine on “The Rewards of Friendship and the Bonds of Family” sums up a few themes in Holding the Line that I think many people can relate to. Please enjoy reading it.

May your holidays be merry and bright, with many happy hopes for the new year.

And may there be plenty of books under your tree!

Happy Holidays – and Happy Reading!

Release Day for Holding the Line!

Holding the Line is now out in the world! Here’s a little montage I put together of moments from the book. Many events take place at various tony homes around London, such as the ones pictured here. Some important scenes take place at the Aerated Bread Company depot. There were many of these around London, offering tea, coffee, bakery goods, and light meals. I think of them as the Panera of their day. Readers of the series will recognize Rose’s mourning ring. It will play a role in this book as well. As for the kiss in the shadows…I’ll leave that for you to discover in the book!

I’m thrilled that the Love Along the Wires series is complete, and I am so grateful for the love already being shown for Holding the Line by advance readers and reviewers.

If you enjoy audiobooks, the whole series now available on audiobook too!

The Latest Book News!

I recently completed the final edits for Holding the Line, with the usual mixed emotions.  It’s tough to be parting from these characters for the last time, but I’m excited because I’m one step closer to sharing this book with readers! Many readers have told me they are excited for Rose’s story. As with the other books in this series, telegraphy will play an important role. There is also a certain book called The Spinster’s Guide to Love and Romance, which has been entrusted (unwillingly on her part) to Rose’s possession.

Holding the Line book cover

Here’s what it’s about…

A widow at just 30 years of age, Rose Finlay is determined to put all ideas of marriage and family behind her and pursue an independent life. But when she notices a young woman about to be led astray by a roguish aristocrat, bitter memories from her past arise, and she feels compelled to intervene. The unintended consequences of her efforts will ultimately force Rose to reexamine her life in a new light.

As the overseer of his two widowed sisters’ financial and domestic affairs, John Milburn carries heavy responsibilities for a single man. But he’s faced with his biggest challenge when his headstrong niece falls prey to the attentions of a powerful man who could ruin both her and her family.

When Rose and John join forces to protect his niece, they put everything they hold dear—including their growing attraction—in jeopardy.

I love this story because…

I think if anyone deserves a happy ever after, it’s the stalwart, kind, honest, and resourceful Rose. Although Rose is genuinely happy that her dear friends have made good marriages, she has no dreams of romance for herself. But she finds a kindred soul in John Milburn. They bond over many things, including a love of books and, ironically, a desire to remain single due to troubles past and present. It was very satisfying to see their story unfold.

The book will be released on December 6, 2022, but you can preorder now at for 40% off and free shipping!
