Anne Greene's "Texas Christmas Mystery"


TITLE:  A TEXAS CHRISTMAS MYSTERY
PUBLISHER: PelicanBookGroup.com.

COVER BLURB: A lady Coastguardsman searches for a killer. An oil rig troubleshooter accused of murder races to clear his name. The murderer strives to silence them both.
Sparks fly as Amber Meredith seeks to arrest Derrick Darbonne. She needs to solve her first case. But the handsome Cajun suspect makes her heart race and her toes tingle.

Derrick worked all his life for his high-paying, adventurous job. When his past threatens his future, will he endanger the woman he loves?

HOW DID THIS STORY COME TO YOU:
I was visiting the historic town of Galveston, Texas with its sea port and off-shore oil rigs and lovely streets of Victorian homes and fell in love with the place. The off-shore oil rig I toured intrigued me, and the old homes had to house lots of mysteries. Throw a romantic Cajun in the mix with the Coast Guard and a story bubbled to the surface. The concept wouldn’t let me go until I wrote it.
TELL US ABOUT THE JOURNEY TO GETTING THIS BOOK PUBLISHED:
This journey was short and sweet. Pelican Book Groups, and my publisher there loved my first award-winning book, Masquerade Marriage, so when they wanted a Christmas story, they eagerly accepted A Texas Christmas Mystery. This book released December 2011 in a Christmas Extravaganza.

TELL ME THREE THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF THAT WOULD SURPRISE YOUR READERS.
I’m a world traveler and have lived in and visited twenty-five foreign countries with three additional ones coming this spring. I paint. You can see some of my pictures on my website. And, I sing in two choirs, but writing is my passion.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW AND WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU?
I’m working on the second book in my Scottish historical romance series with the working title Marriage By Arrangement. I’m about half finished with the first draft. I then want to finish my WWII book about women pilots and want to write a Regency romance. I have so many ideas and books I want to write that’s I find it difficult to decide which to work on next.

  12. I lived in Texas for 4years, I miss all the open countryside and the beautiful wild flowers blanketing the land and it seemed like the folks living in Tx were the nicest I've ever met. I would be very interested in reading your book. Thank you for the free book giveaway. Blessings to you, Dawn
