Death stalks the haunted, windswept prairie in this chilling sequel to Wide Open

Now that she’s solved her sister’s murder, Hallie Michaels has left the army and isn’t sure what to do next. Her relationship with deputy Boyd Davies is tentative, there’s still distance between her and her father, and she needs a job. The good news is, she hasn’t seen a ghost in weeks.

All that changes when she gets a call asking her to help an elderly neighbor who is being stalked by black dogs, creatures from the underworld that are harbingers of death. When a black dog appears, Hallie learns, a reaper is sure to follow. And if the dark visions she’s suddenly receiving are any indication, it looks like the reaper is now following her.

Meanwhile, strange events herald the arrival of ghosts from Boyd’s past, ghosts the young deputy isn’t ready to face. Refusing Hallie’s help, Boyd takes off to deal with the problem on his own, only to find that he’s facing something much larger and more frightening than he’d imagined.

Stalked by a reaper and plagued by dark visions, Hallie finds she must face her fears and travel into Death’s own realm to save those she most loves.

  1. Just finished Wide Open yesterday…..what a roller coaster ride! Thank you for the fun & the juicy characters. As I read the last line I hoped & prayed there was sequel to follow. As I’ve aged, 60 next year, I’ve gotten pickier & pickier about what I read because I’ve too much to do with the vegie gardens, orchard, chicken, dogs, cats & husband (see where husband is on the list? ;)) You grabbed me on the first page & I finished it in 2 days between chores. Cover art is perfect & the teaser on the inside flap does not do justice to your book! Really looking forward to the sequel!

  2. Thank you so much for you comments! And I’m delighted that you enjoyed WIDE OPEN. DEEP DOWN is off to production now, so should be out right no schedule in March, 2013

    • Tyana, Thanks so much for letting me know you liked WIDE OPEN! I hope you enjoy DEEP DOWN just as much when it comes out. 🙂

  4. Just finished Wide Open and loved it. Picked it up in the morning while bedridden with flu and that was it until I finished it. Didn’t even notice the dribbly nose and pounding head. What a great story and Hallie is a refreshing heroine – gritty yet vulnerable. Looking forward to your next book. Well done.

    • Hi Marie!

      I’m glad you liked WIDE OPEN! And that it could get you through the flu. There’s nothing I like better than a good book when I’m stuck at home or in bed.
