Dear Readers~I've been away buried under a numbers of things for a couple months but wanted to share my exciting new cover and tell you what's happening in my world.

I have such a fabulous team of designers for my book covers by Revell with beautiful models that depict my heroine perfectly. I'm pleased to share with you the new cover for book two, A Sweet Misfortune in my Virtues and Vices series. It's wonderful in my humble opinion. :)

Here's a glimpse into my new book that I hope you'll order when it becomes available in Feb. 2016 or for pre-order sooner.

Rachel Mathews isn’t one to rely on others to take care of her. Destitute and alone, she still wants to make her own way and her own money—even if she’s forced into the life of a dance hall girl. Horrified by her circumstances, Rachel’s brother sends a friend—the widely admired cattle baron John McIntyre—to rescue her, then sets off to earn enough money to buy back the family ranch. But when months pass without her brother’s return, Rachel isn’t sure she can take one more day in John McIntyre's home—especially once she discovers that he’s the one who holds the deed to her family’s ranch.
Sparks fly between this spunky, independent heroine and the ruggedly handsome hero as they navigate the snarled terrain of pride, greed, faith, and love in Maggie Brendan’s delightful series set in the Old West.

On the home front, the landscape has changed in a BIG way! My husband retired from architecture and we decided to sell our house, find another one and move from Atlanta to outside of Augusta, GA. My daughter and family live here and were are super excited about the move, as difficult as it was to leave our son and family. It's a smaller community with much less traffic which suits me to a tea.

My office is almost completely set up but it has taken some time to get it that way, and I'm ready to get back to the third book I'm writing.

It's been miserably hot in Georgia and I hope you're staying out of the heat and enjoying your summer with family and friends.

Back soon. Love to you all!
