    Can’t wait for next sadie cooper and lacey steele series. When can we expect to read some more?


  2. G. R.: 10 years ago

    I’M MORE interested in her Sadie Cooper & Lacey Steele series and stand alone (some of the others don’t have the same feel to them). Why doesn’t she concentrate on those? Does she have ghost writers?


  3. sz51: 11 years ago

    What books will you release in 2014?


  4. RWard1234: 11 years ago

    When will Wedding Day (Lacy Steele) be released?


    • Brandon: 11 years ago

      The only info I have for Wedding Day of Murder is “summer 2013,” which I’m sure you’ve already heard. When I see anything new on the release announced, I’ll add it here.
