Ever taken a ride on a cable car? Why not try one now!

Overview of MISTAKEN IDENTITY CRISIS

A clever thief with a sinister calling card has invaded Braxton campus. A string of jewelry thefts continues to puzzle the sheriff given they’re remarkably similar to an unsolved eight-year-old case from shortly before Gabriel vanished one stormy night. When a missing ruby is discovered near an electrified dead body during the campus cable car redesign project, Kellan must investigate the real killer in order to protect his brother. Amidst sorority hazing practices and the victim’s connections to several prominent Wharton County citizens, a malicious motive becomes more obvious and trickier to prove.

As if the latest murder isn’t enough to keep him busy, Kellan partners with April to end the Castigliano and Vargas crime family feud. What really happened to Francesca while all those postcards showed up in Braxton? The mafia world is more calculating than Kellan realized, and if he wants to move forward, he’ll have to make a few ruthless sacrifices.

Election Day is over, and the new mayor takes office. Nana D celebrates her 75th birthday with an adventure. A double wedding occurs at Crilly Lake on Independence Day. And Kellan receives a few more surprises as the summer heat begins to settle in Wharton County.

Gratitude for a Beta Reader

I want to publicly thank all the beta readers who have made this book happen. As always, I include an acknowledgments page in the book, but I felt compelled to provide a special thank you to Shalini @ Digital Reads for all of her efforts on this book. For anyone who might not be familiar, or even those who are, writers rely on a small group of early readers to provide input on the story before it’s shared with a larger group. Shalini is the first person to read all my books, and in this case, she read the book at least four times throughout the process. Before I send it off to ~5 beta readers, Shalini does an alpha review to verify the content, consistency, tone, style, and general strength of the book. We spend hours chatting via messenger to discuss what’s working and what isn’t working.

From there, I will edit and rewrite until I think I’m ready to share it again. Shalini will do a quick but thorough review to push me on anything I’ve left unaddressed, then it goes off to the beta readers for formal review. Once again, Shalini spends a few hours to proofread and find any potential areas for improvement, and then I furiously make all the changes before it’s ready for the final round with the publisher. That’s where I am right now. I have all the beta reader feedback included in this version. I’m currently on vacation, but Shalini, the awesome person she is, will be doing a final read of the book this week so that when I return on 5/26, I can fix any minor proofreading issues and send it to the publisher for review and formatting.

The goal is to deliver to the ARC and Blog Tour readers in the second week of June, and this group of people will help promote the book during the initial launch. I’m super excited to share this one as the story is my favorite thus far. But rest assured, I’m already 95% complete with the outline for the 5th book in the series, and we plan to reveal the cover and the title in late June / early July right around the time we’re publishing Mistaken Identity Crisis.
