Brie Foster has been to hell and back. Once the wife of Nashville’s beloved captain of police, she is forced to watch everything fall apart after pressing domestic abuse charges against her husband. Determined to pick up the pieces of her life, Brie buys a condemned historic house on a whim and sets off to small-town Texas with her young daughter Maisy to finally fulfill her dream of opening a restaurant.
But Brie finds the residents of Marble Falls to be a little less than welcoming, and as strange things start happening around the house, she realizes she may be in for a bit more than she expected.
Where the Heart Is meets magical realism in 700 Main, a story of two women – one past, one present – fighting for their place in a town haunted by its own history.
Well, there you have it, folks! The official launch of my second novel, 700 Main. This one came up a little quicker than originally planned, but November 1 marks the beginning of National Novel Writing Month. So I thought I might as well get started.
Behold my beautiful cover… (Alas, I am not a graphic designer.)
A few fun facts about 700 Main:
- Yes, it is based on a true story.
- The chapters will alternate POV – two main characters!
- There may be a surprise appearance by a character from State of Grace.
- You can read the first chapter here.
And finally, a quick look into my primary protagonist. The second is still a secret!
