It's been a long time since I first met Cat Latimer on a 1600 mile road trip to Boise, Idaho. My husband and I were on our way for a camping trip with friends and to see our family in August 2014. As we drove, I mused about a new series to pitch to my publisher and the story evolved from there.
I wanted Cat to have the old house I'd always dreamed of having - So she got a version of this house from Warm Springs, near by where I lived when I went to Boise State.
And finally, I wanted her to live in or near the mountains.
So there's a taste of Cat's world. I hope you check out A Story to Kill. It's available for pre-order now.
A Story to Kill
Former English Professor Cat Latimer is back in Colorado, hosting writers’ retreats in the big blue Victorian she’s inherited, much to her surprise, from none other than her carousing ex-husband! Now it’s an authors’ getaway—but Cat won’t let anyone get away with murder…
The bed-and-breakfast is open for business, and bestselling author Tom Cook is among its first guests. Cat doesn’t know why he came all the way from New York, but she’s glad to have him among the quirkier—and far less famous—attendees. Cat’s high school sweetheart Seth, who’s fixing up the weathered home, brings on mixed emotions for Cat…some of them a little overpowering. But it’s her uncle, the local police chief, whom she’ll call for help when there’s a surprise ending for Tom Cook in his cozy guest room. Will a killer have the last word on the new life Cat has barely begun?
