Three Shots to the Wind is Out!

Candy Kennedy is the winner of a copy of Three Shots to the Wind. I used a random number generator to pick the winner. Watch for an email from me Candy!

I’m so thrilled that Three Shots to the Wind is out today and I’m giving away a copy to celebrate! Here’s the back cover copy:

Chloe’s Windy City ex-fiancé gets blown away in the Florida panhandle . . .

Saloon owner Chloe Jackson appears to have a secret admirer. She’s pouring drinks at the Sea Glass Saloon in Emerald Cove when an airplane flies by above the beach with a banner reading I LOVE YOU CHLOE JACKSON. She immediately rules out Rip Barnett. They are in the early stages of dating and no one has said the L word. Then a bouquet of lilacs—her favorite flower—is delivered to the bar, followed by an expensive bottle of her favorite sparkling wine. It couldn’t be . . .
Sure enough, her ex-fiancé from Chicago has flown down to Florida for an accountants’ convention. But is he trying to mix business with pleasure and win her back? Unfortunately he’s not in a hotel conference room, he’s floating facedown in the lake next to her house, clutching a photo of Chloe. Who murders an accountant on a business trip—it just doesn’t add up. When Rip becomes the prime suspect, Chloe is determined to find the secret murderer. But if she isn’t careful, it may be closing time and lights out for her . . .

My family and I made a trip to Destin, Florida in the Florida Panhandle at the beginning of March to celebrate my mom’s 95th birthday and my birthday! I thought I shared some photos from that fun week. Thanks so my daughter, one of my birthday presents was a surprise visit from my dear friend Carol Williams. We’ve been laughing together since ninth grade. Carol actually met my dad before me. He was her eighth grade math teacher.

I love this photo that I snapped as we flew in. It shows several things that are mentioned in the Chloe Jackson Sea Glass Saloon mysteries. You can see the two sand bars — one close to shore and the second further out. On the lower right you can see one of the seventeen coastal dune lakes surrounded by trees. And if you look closely at the upper right corner and spot the Choctowhatchee Bay. It shows you how narrow this strip of land is!

The sunset the night we arrived.
Lemon drop shots at the Crab Trap!
The Gulf of Mexico sparkles in the afternoon sun.
Carol and me! We had so much fun.

Yes, that’s a shark! It’s the first one I’ve ever seen and this is from eight stories up. Look how close it is to the shore. We’ve always heard that there are sharks on the other side of the second sandbar but this guy was close.

I did my first in-person event with a fabulous book group while I was in Destin.
Chloe is always looking for firm sand to run on–and me to walk on.
There aren’t many shells on the beach here. They are also rumored to be on the far side of the second sandbar.
The sea oats that protect the dunes.
The drinks menu at The Whale’s Tail which is one of the bars that inspired the Sea Glass.
The spring breakers arrive the day before we left. Also the wood poles near the shore are part of the old pier that is mentioned in the series.
One last sunrise. Okay, it was only the second one I saw. But I did see all the sunsets.

I hope you enjoyed the photos and I hope you love Three Shots to the Wind! Signed copies are available at One More Page bookstore.
