A young jewelry designer, Caitlin Abernathy, lives a quiet life and is involved with a man who is rather boring — that is until he is found murdered! Thus begins her adventure starting with the discovery of a priceless piece of historic jewelry found in her shop, and her attempt to return it to its rightful owner — the Louvre Museum in Paris. However, the thieves who stole it in the first place have other plans for it, and our young designer is very much in their way. They will stop at nothing to prevent her from returning the jewel to the Louvre, including murder.
In her flight across Paris and Brittany, Caitlin is helped by her close friend and employee, Aristotle Jones, and Colin Stryker, a handsome Scottish Professor who takes quite an interest in Caitlin.

The two things I enjoy most in life are traveling and writing. I think I’ve been writing stories since the day I was first given a pencil and paper. I had a vivid imagination as a child…a characteristic that has gotten me into trouble more than once, and that has only increased with age. I’ve never been able to recount any event without embellishing it.
So it was natural that I should turn to writing fiction. And even more natural to choose to write romantic suspense, where I could let my imagination run wild.
In my earlier days, my work took me to some fascinating places; the Torres Strait islands, off the north coast of Australia, the Caribbean before it became a tourist haven, Hungary when the Russian soldiers were still patrolling the streets. I spent time in Australia, Austria, and Germany. And later in Italy and Greece. These locales became the settings for my books:
• Canada’s Sunshine Coast, Sonata;
• Greece, The Memory of Roses;
• Italy, Where Lemons Bloom;
• Germany, Austria and Hungary, Romantic Road;
• France, Fatal Charm
I built a house on a small still un-touristic island in the Caribbean – on a plot of land with no electricity or running water. Friends there told me stories and legends about their island and Delighting In Your Company was born.
In a word, I have lived a rather unorthodox life…And loved every minute of it.
Today I am more settled. I operate a Bed & Breakfast with a friend on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast in the spring and summer. When fall comes we head for Europe. Last year we traveled to Scotland to research the locale for my work in progress, The MacInnes Affair. It weaves together two love stories, one in the present and one in the past, in Scotland and in Canada.
A recent reviewer referred to my “vivid and clear descriptions of places” that that made her feel “as if she were there.” She queried whether I had used Google or had actually been to all those places.
My answer to all such questions is: Been there, done that!
