Have You Pre-Ordered THE LAST CAMELLIA?

My dear readers and friends: My new novel, THE LAST CAMELLIA, will be out in about four months! It is now available for pre-order online, and I’d be so, so honored if you took a moment to reserve your copy. This way, you’ll be among the very first to receive your book on release day. Here are a few ways you can pre-order right now:


Barnes & Noble


Here’s a bit more about the book:

On the eve of the Second World War, the last surviving specimen of a camellia plant known as the Middlebury Pink lies secreted away on an English country estate. Flora, an amateur American botanist, is contracted by an international ring of flower thieves to infiltrate the household and acquire the coveted bloom. Her search is at once brightened by new love and threatened by her discovery of a series of ghastly crimes.

More than half a century later, garden designer Addison takes up residence at the manor, now owned by the family of her husband, Rex. The couple’s shared passion for mysteries is fueled by the enchanting camellia orchard and an old gardener’s notebook. Yet its pages hint at dark acts ingeniously concealed. If the danger that Flora once faced remains very much alive, will Addison share her fate?

I cannot wait to share this novel with you. It’s a bit more mysterious than my other novels, and if you’re a fan of the Downton Abbey series (the new season airs this Sunday!!!!), I think you’ll love the setting (just saying!).

    I have ordered the new book, and can’t wait to began reading it. I enjoyed “The Violets of March” and “Blackberry Winter.” BTW, “Blackberry Winter” was one of my favorite books of 2012. Loved it. I haven’t read “The Bungalow” maybe I need to check it out and see what I missed.

    Dear Sarah;

    I just picked up and read THE BUNGLOW, I had purchased it through Reader’s Digest Condensed Books the end of 2012. I had so much going on that I had not had time to read. Your book took me back to the time my Dad spent on the islands during the war. Thank you for such a good story. It was captivating from the first page. Can’t think of a better way to spend a snowy day in Iowa
