If You Like Patricia McLinn Books, You’ll Love…

Sign Off is the first book in the Caught Dead in Wyoming series. The story follows a TV journalist named Elizabeth Danniher who has seen better days in her career. She used to break national news, but after making an enemy of a powerful executive and getting older – she now finds herself as a reporter in Sherman, Wyoming. Even in this isolated outpost, she finds a way to stay busy. She’s currently investigating a missing deputy who may have been murdered while also dealing with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik who is either using her to advance his career, trying to get romantic, or both. Through it all, Elizabeth won’t go down without a fight.

The Seasons in a Small Town series begins with What Are Friends For?. Zeke was a big geek in high school. He had a big crush on the prom queen Jennifer and often overlooked his best friend Darcie. One night Darcie and Zeke became lovers, but then he left town and never returned. It’s now seventeen years later and the town is struggling. Darcie hatches up a plan to lure Zeke back to town to set him up with Jennifer and save the town, but plans have a way of not working out exactly as you planned.
