Hi Linda, tell us about the Amelia Moore Detective Series.

The Amelia Moore Detective Series is a G-rated romantic cozy mystery. You learn all about the life of Amelia Moore and her partner, Rick Bonito. You learn what kind of people they truly are through their bucket lists and what they’re like deep down inside. You even see a slow romance develop between them in each story until the day they finally tie the knot and are married. Now this detective agency will solve new cases as a married couple.

Review of the Amelia Moore Series
“In the Amelia Moore Detective Series, the author delivers a delightful, fairly fast-paced tale in the pursuit of a missing person, for that's what Amelia's agency specializes in. This time it is personal, as Rick's Uncle Antonio Bonito dies in suspicious circumstances. But what do lighthouses have to do with his disappearance? The reader gets a brief education into lighthouses, their importance in the past and the interesting uses they have today.” Sandra Olshaski, Library of Clean Reads

Review of The Lighthouse Secret
In The Lighthouse Secret, Rick Bonito’s uncle supposedly drowned five years ago and his body was never found, but something did not seem right about the report. Uncle Antonio was an excellent swimmer. His disappearance seems quite suspicious to Rick’s father. He never felt the complete truth had come out about his brother. It is now up to Amelia and Rick to find out the truth about his uncle.
“Amelia’s and Rick’s fresh marriage adds a new dynamic to their case—what happened to his uncle five years ago? Every scrap of information seems to increase their danger as a power hungry lawyer and a mysterious private detective are lurking in the background. The story was well told with surprises and complications threatening their search for the truth. The ending was a complete surprise.” – Andean White, Author

A lighthouse setting sounds very interesting. Giving an insight about lighthouses and the adventure of this story is bound to keep the reader turning the pages. I've enjoyed the two books of yours I've read, Linda. I look forward to my name being in the hat for this one.

I love the concept of lighthouses! Wonder what it is about 'em that just sorta draws us to them? A great place to plot out the story of a missing person. This book sounds exciting. Wishing you the best with it, Linda. :)
