Since my new book, THE LAST GOODNIGHT—Kade Logan and Ellie Bowman’s story—is set on a ranch in Colorado, I thought it might be fun to talk about one of my favorite places.
There is something special about Colorado. The high, snow-topped mountains, the mile-high city that is literally a mile above sea level.
There’s a lot of history in Colorado. The mining industry has been part of the culture since the gold rush of 1859 and the even bigger silver boom that started two decades later in 1879. As I researched the plot, mining became more and more important to my story.
Colorado also has some of the most beautiful ranches in the country. Kade Logan’s ranch, The Diamond Bar, is one of them. I based it on an actual ranch in the area, which I often to in my novels.
In THE LAST GOODNIGHT, when Kade Logan said goodbye to his wife eight years earlier, he never thought it would be the last time he saw her alive. Then her car is found in a nearby lake and Kade is determined not to fail his dead wife again—this time he won’t rest until he finds her killer.
Eleanor Bowman, a private investigator, joins him in the search. Having been raised on a ranch in Wyoming, Ellie is able to fit in undercover on the ranch. And of course, the chemistry between the two is hot from day one!
Next up is THE LAST MILE, the second Logan brother, Gage, a world-renown explorer, is the man Abigail Holland hires him to find her grandfather’s missing treasure. It’s a high-action adventure I hope you enjoy.
Till then, happy reading and all good wishes.
