Without local cowboy Cory’s protection, Ava won’t get the chance to follow leads as the killer tries to stop her investigation. But Ava’s falling for Cory against her better judgment. She should be working and not pining after a cowboy. And Cory doesn’t want a relationship. His successful career was destroyed by a woman he trusted, and he won’t make the same mistake twice.
One suspect after another is cleared from Ava’s list until she’s sure she has the real killer targeted in her sights, but he’s hunting her, too. How will Ava and Cory find the killer and admit their love before they are buried under a mountain of secrets?
Fateful Fall is my fourth book and I’m beyond excited to share it with readers. It is the perfect example of God’s timing. You see, this book was born once before. My first book to come into the world. It only had four days to live that first time. And when the publishing house closed right after its release, I was devastated. I thought it had to be a clear sign I was done as a writer. I put my keyboard aside for what I thought was going to be the last time and bowed my head in defeat and tears. But this story wasn’t over. God was going to use some incredible circumstances to bring it back to life.
A year passed. My heart was heavy with lost dreams and an unsure future. But one thing I knew was that God didn’t want me to write anymore. So I dove into life at home in a busy household, where teenagers and friends came and went at a dizzying pace. But no words ever crossed my screen even though my writing haunted me. God was about to show me in the most incredible way that He had a plan…and it took a woman from across the world to accomplish it.
I had made many friends on social media over the years. One in particular was from the United Kingdom. How cool was it to have a friend in England? One night I was sitting on my couch when I got a message from her. She told me she felt God telling her to encourage me to keep writing. It was so out of the blue so astonishing I burst out in tears. She had become friends with a lady from my church and they had been talking about Fateful Fall prior to her message to me. What were the chances that she would know this lady from my church?! Sure, social media can make connections, but this was extraordinary.
God could not have spoken clearer to me than in that conversation. I can’t thank my England friend enough for letting God use her to get me back on track. Now my book is reborn. And it’s so much better than on the first go around, because I had time to grow and learn more by the time it was getting to the editing stage.
If you’ve been discouraged to the point of giving up, take courage. God has a plan!
