That’s right, I’ve just put out a Christmas-themed installment for my Amish Mystery series! A CHRISTMAS MOURNING is a 99 cent E-short story featuring Claire, Jakob, Diane, and Benjamin.
Don’t have an E-reader? That’s okay, as long as you have a computer, you can download a free reading app from any of the e-book sites that will enable you to read the story on your computer or phone or whatever device you use.
Happy reading and enjoy!
Be sure to come back right here in about a week for details on the Christmas-themed E-short story (99 cents) I am releasing for the Amish Mysteries. Don’t have an E-reader? No worries. The major E-reader sites offer free apps that enable you to read an E-only story on any device–phone, tablet, home computer.
As for the story, itself? It’s called, A Christmas Mourning.
Here’s a wee bit about it, just to get you excited!
Claire Weatherly has come to respect how the Amish of Heavenly, Pennsylvania, value tradition. But not all traditions are necessarily quaint. When a decades-old mystery threatens the well-being of local police detective Jakob Fisher, she’ll pit herself against a community rooted in the past so that he can get on with his future.
When Claire decides to visit the one-room schoolhouse Jakob attended as a young Amish boy, she’s puzzled by his refusal to go along too. As Jakob tells his story, Claire is stunned and saddened by the heartbreaking tale of a childhood mistake that led to the mysterious disappearance of a precious family artifact—and signaled the first break between Jakob and his mother, made all the more painful now that he’s been shunned by the family and community he loves.
Knowing there’s only one way to help heal the irreparable wound that continues to haunt Jakob, Claire sets off to follow the trail of the missing heirloom, never suspecting that it will lead her to Jakob’s oldest friend, a long-ago Christmas secret, and an enduring truth about family, love, and the power of forgiveness.
Be sure to come back early next week to see the cover…and for release information.
That’s right, three of my fellow authors and I will be hosting a murder mystery train ride–THE CAT SCREAMED AT MIDNIGHT–in Jackson, Missouri (100 miles south of St. Louis) on October 1, 2016.
The train will leave the station at 5:30 p.m. You’ll be served dinner…and mystery! Yes, you’ll be involved in the mystery as it unfolds. Once the murder mystery has been solved, the train will stop at an old time town so we can put the murderer in jail (photo ops!) and then stay and enjoy s’mores (I looovvveee s’mores) over a fire before heading back on the train to our original departure point.
After the train ride, we’ll continue the fun back at the Drury Inn (our event hotel) until 10 p.m. with soda, popcorn, and a goodie bag.
The next morning, we’ll meet up at the hotel’s complimentary (and very good) hot breakfast before following each other over to the local Barnes & Noble for a book signing.
Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? I am so excited about this!
I hope you’ll join me, along with my fellow mystery authors Tonya Kappes, Duffy Brown, and Kathi Daley, for this fun-filled reader weekend.

I’m thrilled to share with you the cover for A CHURN FOR THE WORSE (Amish Mysteries #5)!!!! Once again, my cover artist hit a homerun. The shovel, the horse, the candies on the ground–all important in this story.
The book will release on March 1st and is currently available for pre-order. For what it’s worth, pre-orders will be a very big factor in whether this series continues beyond this book.
Thank you for being readers and for loving this series as much as I do!
