Judith who post at 11:54 am is the winner of my books! Thanks for all of your lovely comments!
There is some news that is so exciting to share and some you don’t want to at all. This is one of those posts I wish I didn’t have to write, but I’ve had lots of readers reaching out.
I’m sorry to say that Kensington didn’t renew my contract to write more Chloe Jackson Sea Glass Saloon mysteries. I feel so lucky to have been able to write four of them! Since I wasn’t sure what would happen when I turned in the fourth book, I tried to make sure Chloe’s life was in an upward trajectory!
What’s ahead may have some spoiler alerts if you haven’t read the series, but I wanted to let you know where I think the characters are, now, in this moment.
Chloe is so happy with Rip and yes, I’m sure an engagement is in the future. She is still getting into shenanigans with Ann Williams. There’s a certain someone she is hoping will return and face what must be faced. Chloe and Vivi are the most supportive of friends and love each other dearly. Chloe is taking over more and more responsibilities at the Sea Glass Saloon.
Vivi is engaged to Wade Thomas! They are taking time off to travel and enjoy each other.
Joaquín has a complication in his life. He’s been asked to be a judge of a dancing show filming in Los Angeles. The pay is amazing and would set him and Michael up for a good long time. But he hasn’t told Michael or Chloe about the offer yet!
Ann Williams is still fixing things for people, but can she fix things with Deputy Biffle? They are still circling each other and I’m hoping they will find a way to be together.
The rest of the good people of Emerald Cove are working hard and playing hard. They are all happy that the murder rate is down!
Thanks to all of you who have read these books and loved them. I’ve so enjoyed hearing from so many of you! I loved writing them and wished I had better news.
Readers: I don’t want to leave things on a sad note, so I’ll give away a set of the Sea Glass Saloon mysteries to someone who leaves a comment!
