My roots are nestled in Kentucky soil. Both of my father’s parents were born and raised in Kentucky and my father too. As a child I visited there with my Grandmother Ruth as she went back each summer to visit her sisters and brothers. Those were the best summers. So as an adult, it’s a trip we try to make annually for at least a few days.
As I became an author, it was natural that I’d write a book Kentucky. As the thought percolated in my mind, it became a series and surrounding that series came the idea of Chandler County. So, this series comes from deep roots and love of the area and my family. I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
Sam McKenzie has everything he needs in his professional life. Bluegrass Security is going strong, he just purchased a home for the first time in his life, he even got himself a dog. Personally, however, life was a bit unsettled. His growing crush on Stevie Jorgenson was unrequited – he just didn’t know why. She seemed to enjoy spending time with him, he’d caught her staring more than once, but yet, she seemed wary to take it to the next level.
Stevie Jorgenson had worked her entire life trying to step from the shadow of her wealthy family, including the family horse business. Excelling at the police academy and then making detective in Chandler County had been hard work. Now, her growing attraction to Sam McKenzie was beginning to shade her with its shadow. The trouble was his biggest client was her father’s rival in business and that could make things messy. The other issue was his client was also a dirty dealer and she had to uphold the law. How can they make it on opposite sides of the track?
