Dear Reader,Considering that I'm married to Cedar Cove's private investigator, you might think I enjoy mysteries. But I don't-especially when they involve us! Roy's been receiving anonymous postcards and messages asking if we "regret the past." We don't know what they mean....On a more positive note, we're both delighted that our daughter, Linnette, has moved to Cedar Cove to work at the new medical clinic. A while ago I attended the humane society's "Dog and Bachelor Auction," where I bought her a date with Cal Washburn, who works at Cliff Harding's horse farm. Unfortunately Linnette is less enthusiastic about this date than I am.Speaking of Cliff, the romance between him and Grace Sherman is back on. But that's only one of the many interesting stories here in Cedar Cove. So why don't you drop by for a coffee at my husband's office on Main Street or our house on Harbor and I'll tell you everything that's new!

Nikolai Gregorivich, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire cop on the trail of a serial killer. The sizzling love affair between Jazz and Nick has been off-again, on-again-for about 300 years. Mostly off, lately. But now Nick needs Jazz's help, and while Jazz and Nick try to figure out their own hearts and resist their ever-increasing attraction, they must steer clear of a maniacal killer with super-supernatural powers. They are surrounded by a hilarious cast of oddball paranormal characters, including Irma, the chain-smoking ghost who haunts Jazz's sports car, Dweezil, her ghoul of a boss, and Fluff and Puff, a pair of bunny slippers with sharp teeth and short tempers (watch your ankles)!
When freelance writer Mabel Ivey is offered a full-time job at "Real Men" magazine--the magazine dedicated to helping women find real-life heroes--she jumps at the chance. She's not sure whether to be complimented or insulted, however, that the first story is to be a makeover--"her" makeover!

Mimi Pickford wanted her life to be more than serving up daily specials at the local diner. But the one man who could help her achieve her secret dream had suddenly dropped out of sight. Elusive hero Gibson St. James was known for rescuing babies from burning buildings--and for wearing his bachelorhood like a badge. But he'd also earned the reputation of being hard-headed, hard-bodied--and just plain hard to crack. Well, tough! Because Mimi needed his help--and she'd never shied away from a challenge yet. At least, never one sooo appealing....
It's Him vs. Her when romance collides with reality--and everyone is watching....He says...he'll have his way with her inside a week.

It's an on-camera publicity stunt and Matt's determined to come out on top. She says...she'll never make the same mistake twice. Though their long-ago affair is a secret, Olivia feels as if her broken heart is on display whenever she crosses paths with her infuriatingly cocky--and undeniably charismatic--nemesis. Now she's stuck with him in the reality show from hell...or is it heaven? All she has to do is keep a level head, even while every other part of her is spinning dizzily out of control.From the Paperback edition.

Dear Reader,I'm living a life I couldn't even havedreamedof a few years ago. I'm married to Bobby Polgar now (you know, the famous chess champion who just happens to be the man I love!). And we've got this beautiful house with a view of Puget Sound. Lately something's been worrying Bobby, though. When I asked, he said he was 'protecting his queen' and I got the oddest feeling he wasn't talking about chess but aboutme. He wouldn't say anything else. Do you remember Get Nailed, the beauty salon in Cedar Cove? I still work there. I'll tell you about my friend Rachel, who's got two men interested in her (count 'em,two). And I'll let you in on what I've heard about Linnette McAfee, who left town when her love life fell apart. (Thatkind of trouble I know all about. ) Come in soon for a manicure and a chat, okay?Teri ( Miller) Polgar
Dear Reader, I have something to confide in you. I think my husband, Dave, might be having an affair. I found an earring in his pocket, and it's not mine. I'm also worried because some jewelry was recently stolen from an old woman--and Dave used to visit her a lot. You see, he's a pastor. And a good man. I can't believe he's guilty of anything, but why won't he tell me where he's been when he comes home so late? Reader, I'd love to hear what you think. I also want to tell you what's going on with your other friends in Cedar Cove. Like Sheriff Troy Davis, to mention one. His long-ago love, Faith Beckwith, just moved here! So come on in and join me for a cup of tea. Emily Flemming
92 Pacific Boulevard Cedar Cove, WashingtonDear Reader,I'm not much of a letter writer. As the sheriff here, I'm used to writing incident reports, not chatty letters. But my daughter, Megan--who'll be making me a grandfather soon--told me I had to do this. So here goes. I'll tell you straight out that I'd hoped to marry Faith Beckwith (my high school girlfriend) but she ended the relationship last month, even though we're both widowed and available. There were a few misunderstandings between us, some of them inadvertently caused by Megan. However, I've got plenty to keep me occupied, like the unidentified remains found in a cave outside town. And the fact that my friend Judge Olivia Griffin is fighting cancer. And the break-ins at 204 Rosewood Lane--the house Faith happens to be renting from Grace Harding. . . If you want to hear more, come on over to my place or to the sheriff's office--if you can stand the stale coffee! Troy Davis
