Description
   Serena Murphy was losing her mind.

   Every night Serena stood on the deck of O'Flanagans Tavern, searching Maine's rugged coast for a sign of her husband's body. Though he was pronounced lost at sea, Alan Murphy still haunted her as only his malevolent spirit could. In the loft above her tavern, Serena hears footsteps pace across her living room floor, yet when she turns, no one is there.

   Alan would not let a little thing like death stop him from tormenting her. If she could just find his body, surely this torture would stop.

   It had been ten years since Brett Murphy saw his sister in-law, although the separation was by design, to avoid temptation. Now Brett was in Victory Cove, not to declare his feelings for Serena, but to discover the truth about his brother's death. In doing so, he must battle Serena's ghosts, both real and contrived.


The Story Behind This Book
WIDOW'S TALE was once actually an 8 page short story I wrote in Creative Writing. Over the years, the characters and the haunting Maine coastal village of Victory Cove have stuck with me, and eventually they evolved into a 300+ page romantic suspense novel.


Praise and Reviews
5-Stars - Amazon Sierra Rose

Widow's Tale has so much going for it that it's hard to speak of it all. It's a beautifully written romance that has a fantastic murder mystery mixed in. The author will pull you right in from the first chapter and doesn't let go. The setting in Maine makes you want to go there, visit the pub and have a drink with those characters. It's like you can see and small the ocean or the storm when it blows in. Very realistic descriptions.

The characters are also so well written that you feel as if you've known them. Serena and Brett will soon become your favorite romance couple and you feel for each of them as the book goes along. There's romance, mystery, excitement and so much more in this book that it's a must read.

5 Stars - Amazon B. Theune

It's been a while since I felt compelled to stay up late with a book. I read until I just couldn't keep my eyes open. Then I picked it up as soon as I woke up, and finally finished it about 30 seconds before work! Great plot, characters I could really get into, and the ocean to boot. I'm almost finished with her next book, and can't wait until she's got more out.
