It’s raining in Oklahoma! And finally cooling down those intense temperatures. I looked out the front door and saw a large garter snake on the sidewalk trying to get out of the flooded flowerbeds that were cracked and dry last week. Hard to blame him. But rainy weather is a good time to write, and I’ve been working on my third novel on Sandhill Island. I’ll work some more on that today.
But let’s talk about novels available now. Blooming Greed is the second in the Keystone Lake series. I really loved writing these books having grown up on Keystone Lake with a friend’s family and then later owning property there as an adult.
Oklahoma, though in the middle of the country, has many lakes. And being a big fan of water, it seemed a great place to set a novel.
Erin Shipley grew up on Keystone Lake before moving to Tulsa and becoming an associate attorney. Now, she’s back, representing a client who is concerned about the flooding and property values around the lake. Properties underwater are being bought and sold for pennies on the dollar by someone called T & H Realty. When her friend’s uncle, Jeff, dies mysteriously on the lake, Erin wonders if it has anything to do with the real estate scam and launches an investigation. The dam is old and zebra mussels are clogging it, not allowing enough water to flow out. If the dam breaks, it will flood downtown Tulsa and areas around it. But that’s not the only danger…whoever killed Jeff isn’t finished with their diabolical plan, and Erin and those she loves are at risk from more than just a dam break.
If it’s raining where you are or the intense heat is keeping you inside, a good book should be your best friend. Pick up a copy of Blooming Greed and let me know how you like it.
