Dearest Stalker: Part 1
What happens when a woman falls in love with her stalker?
I’m not the type of woman who actually inspires passion in any guy, much less one who makes it a habit to watch me because he’s obsessed.
I’m a curvy, plain Jane. I like my chips, chocolate, and junk food, and it definitely shows.
I’m an educated geek who would rather have my nose in a computer instead of a fashion magazine.
But none of those things seem to matter to Stalker. He sees something in me that I don’t see in myself, and I don’t know why.
I’m terrified, yet I’m inexplicably intrigued.
A Pint of Murder (The Madoc and Janet Rhys Mysteries Book 1)
In rural Canada, a woman dies after eating from a jar of tainted green beans—and a Mountie must preserve the evidence.
In a quiet small town in New Brunswick, old Agatha Treadway makes one last cranky complaint to her niece before dying on her kitchen floor. The cause seems to be a jar of contaminated string beans, which sat on Agatha’s basement shelf for years before becoming her final meal. The town doctor calls it a tragic accident—and a warning to all who can their own vegetables—but Agatha’s neighbor, the intrepid Janet Wadman, knows better. Agatha was an expert canner, which means the beans must have been placed there by someone else. This was murder.
Before Janet can share her theory with the town doctor, he, too, meets an untimely death. To oversee the investigation, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police send Madoc Rhys, a wholly unusual Mountie who poses as Janet’s relative while he searches for the killer.

Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike
Between 1896 and 1899, thousands of people lured by gold braved a grueling journey into the remote wilderness of North America. Within two years, Dawson City, in the Canadian Yukon, grew from a mining camp of four hundred to a raucous town of over thirty thousand people. The stampede to the Klondike was the last great gold rush in history.
Drawing on letters, memoirs, newspaper articles, and stories, Charlotte Gray delivers an enthralling tale of the gold madness that swept through a continent and changed a landscape and its people forever. In Gold Diggers, she follows six stampeders—Bill Haskell, a farm boy who hungered for striking gold; Father Judge, a Jesuit priest who aimed to save souls and lives; Belinda Mulrooney, a twenty-four-year-old who became the richest businesswoman in town; Flora Shaw, a journalist who transformed the towns governance; Sam Steele, the officer who finally established order in the lawless town; and most famously Jack London, who left without gold, but with the stories that would make him a legend.

But Julie and Hank’s new life in the valley, in the last years of the nineteenth century, is more complicated than the couple ever imagined. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what to fear most—the fires and floods or the flesh-and-blood grifters, drunks, and busybodies who insinuate themselves into their new life.
