Hill Country Secrets

Hill Country Secrets is a series of romantic suspense novels centered around secrets harbored in Schatzenburg, Texas, a small Texas Hill Country town. In the tight-knit community, where news is shared at The Drugstore, secrets are buried, never discussed, but they have a way of causing trouble.

You can buy the books individually or as one collection, available digitally only. (Scroll down for links.)


Finding Claire

She wakes up in the back of a van, and her whole world changes.

​Injured and afraid—with no recollection of who she is—she stumbles through the Texas Hill Country with a photo labeled Claire. Seeking safety, she knocks at Alex’s cabin door. He protects her, even though she stirs up memories that haunt him.

​She wants her life back. He wants to ease his guilt and will protect her even if it means risking his own life.

Together they search, hoping questions will be answered by finding Claire.

Finding Kate

Time doesn’t heal all wounds, but it sometimes delays retribution.

After having her life flipped upside down, Kate is eager to move to Texas. Alex—excited about their newly budding relationship—suggests a road trip to Denver to pack up her apartment. When her story hits the 24-hour news cycle, long-kept secrets threaten Kate and Alex’s happily-ever-after and their lives.

Kate wants to start over in the house her mother loved. Alex wants time for the relationship to deepen, but when the unthinkable happens, he realizes love rarely shows up alone.

In a hunt to find Kate, Alex lands at her laptop, searching. Can he keep her alive? Can he keep her at all?

Finding Treasure

A seemingly innocent encounter changes her dream life into a nightmare.

Settled into her Texas home, Kate launches her genealogy business. Still living in the cabin, Alex racks up miles on his truck, driving to see her in Schatzenburg every chance he gets. A young, wealthy guy buys the house down the block from Kate and causes a stir. He lavishes her with attention, which leaves Alex questioning the motive.

Although she is happy, Kate wants more than a dinner-and-a-movie relationship. Loving the companionship, Alex wants her to trust him and plans a surprise party to make her birthday a special event.

When Kate is targeted but has no idea why, Alex moves into her extra room, only to learn he can’t always protect her.

I’ve released short stories related to the characters in the series and the town. Often, I’ll reference theses stories in the novels.

  • The Wrong Path – A romantic short story about DJ and Becca. (Included in the eBook Box Set)
  • Just a Friend – A short story that relates to characters in book 2. It doesn’t give away anything but will add depth to the back story. (Also included in the eBook Box Set)
  • The Set-Up – A short story spotlighting the friendship Alex shares with DJ and Becca.
  • The Surprise – A romantic short story about Beth and Patrick, characters introduced in book two.

Companion Novels

These books share a world with the Hill Country Secrets series but are about different characters.

The Chase – A romantic suspense novel about Detective Ben Torres and Marisa Ramirez. (I recommend reading this book AFTER book three, but it can be read as a standalone.)

Just You, Just Me, and Just Us (Cheesecake, Margaritas & Candlelight series) – Just You is Travis’s story. It gives a glimpse of his life after Kate’s return and his relationship with Mari. The other two books in the series focus on Mari’s friends. Love after 40 is a theme in these books. Romance isn’t only for the young.

The Secrets Love Kept (book 1 in Love’s Secrets duet) – A romance set in the 1940’s that shows how Gram became the heart of Schatzenburg. Finding true love isn’t always easy. Sometimes it finds you.
