Sally's Secret Legacy took me nearly a decade to write. It is set on a farm in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. The location is loosely based on a farm that my grandparents had when I was a little girl. That beautiful holler is my idea of paradise. I have often wondered what it would be like to buy a large farm like that and make it my own.
My romantic heart has always been a big part of me, so when I sat down to write a story about a woman who bought a farm, I knew it was going to be a romance. I did not know the many directions that story would take before it was finished, and I had no idea how I would fall in love with the characters.
Here's the blurb from the book: When old family secrets are revealed, Sally learns nothing is as she believed.
After Sally buys her grandparents' old farm, she reconnects with her childhood friend, Jake. While the attraction is instant, things are not as they seem. Suddenly she's dealing with vandalism, death threats, stolen property, trying to find a missing woman, and possibly an organized crime ring.
The ghosts from her past are trying to tell her something, but she isn’t sure she’s equipped to deal with the paranormal.
Can she trust Jake to help her figure things out and keep her safe? More importantly, can she trust him with her heart knowing he's keeping his own secret? Could Jake be a wolf in a man's skin?
Are you intrigued yet?
I'll tell you a secret. He isn't mentioned in the blurb, but there is a teen boy named Chase who was supposed to be a one and done character. He was just supposed to do some handyman chores and fade into obscurity. Once I began writing his character, however, I just couldn't let him go. He insisted on becoming an important supporting character, and I'm so glad I kept him.
Chase was technically in the foster system, but he lived with his aunt and uncle. Through some interesting plot twists, Chase grows as a character and finds a slice of happiness no one was expecting.
I hope you will check out Sally's Secret Legacy!
