Meet Linda

Linda has loved reading since a friend gave her a Nancy Drew book at the age of twelve — her first. Later, Agatha Christie and Mary Stewart enthralled her as well as British mysteries and police procedurals. Today, she still reads voraciously while writing her own books.
Linda loves clean reads that deal with real issues of our time and that exalt God and His Kingdom. Christian romantic suspense is a favorite. Since deciding to join the authors she loves and become a writer, Linda has belonged to numerous writer’s groups and attended many conferences. All four books in her series have finaled or semi-finaled in the ACFW First Impressions or Genesis contest.

She’d raised her hand to knock, and her hair and jacket dripped water. She looked like foliage curling beside a waterfall, droplets clinging to her eyebrows, her eyelashes, and mouth.
Rain and wind blew into the house as they stared at each other. Lightning tore across the sky. Luke grabbed her arm and dragged her into the foyer, slamming the door behind her. She jumped and slid further into the hall.
Even dripping wet, she was still one attractive woman. And, like Teresa, she probably needed the proverbial bullwhip to beat the men off. His jaw tightened. Pretty women were Trouble. Capital T.

A Dog’s View

You know, I’ve had so much fun writing about the two dogs in my novels. They’re different and yet very much alike. Cooper is a big, black Labrador Retriever and Farley is a Blue Heeler. The thing about dogs is they don’t say much. They bark, of course, but only when needed–or when they think it’s needed.

John Jergenson has played chess with God for years. But for God to send some five-foot-two, wild-haired girl into his life isn’t playing fair. Not when John’s promised to help with her Christmas program, not when she makes life worth living again, and not when a baby’s kidnapping leads to a dangerous confrontation.

When John Jergenson returns from a month’s long mission trip to Indonesia, his mind is set on asking Sharee Jones to marry him and return to the islands as missionaries. But Sharee has enough to think about—anonymous phone calls, an attack on her life, and uneasiness about their relationship. The last thing she wants is a marriage proposal. Can John keep her alive, keep her ex-boyfriend out of the picture, and fend off the attentions of another woman long enough to convince Sharee to walk down the aisle?

Lynn Stapleton likes designer handbags and high-end clothing, so how did Sharee Jergenson talk her into visiting a homeless site, much less starting a friendship with one of its residents? Then a hurricane hits Florida, and Lynn finds herself involved in the homeless woman’s murder. Detective Rich Richards thinks Lynn’s connection with the woman is suspicious, but Lynn doesn’t care what the blue-eyed detective thinks. She’s not leaving this investigation until the murderer is found. On the other hand, Richards finds Lynn not just a disruption to his case, but also to his life as a nominal Christian. He’d do better to stay away from the tall, willowy blonde, but he can’t—because she and Sharee have unearthed evidence that will convict someone of murder, and that person has marked both women for death.
