Welcome to Devlinsbooks!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!! 

Our gift to you is a new Miranda Hathaway Adventure titled, “The Quilter’s Christmas Surprises”. Join Miranda and her friends and family as they prepare for Christmas in Cutler. Surprises abound and just when you think they’re done, guess what, there’s more!

THE QUILTER’S CHRISTMAS SURPRISES
Miranda Hathaway Adventure #6

Christmas is such a magical time and spirits are high in Cutler.  While it’s true that there have been changes over the past several years, some that shook our small-town sense of security, everyone is moving forward.

A family dispute that turned into the first murder in decades proved too much for the Chief of Police. Jake Perryman had a heart attack and died leaving his wife Taylor alone.

And now, an abandoned baby girl has been found at the Library. Thankfully, Miranda Hathaway’s clairvoyant cat led the way to her before it was too late. Taylor found her and wants her but babies don’t fall under “finders’ keepers.”

With Deputy Jimmy Haynes ready to take over, Acting Chief Gabe Downing is thinking about the future. He knows what he wants. But will his surprise for Miranda turn out the way he hopes, or will she be totally blindsided?

The spirit of Christmas is restored in Cutler and surprises abound. For certain, this is one Christmas that no one will soon forget!

 

 

NEW BOOK, NEW CHARACTER, NEW STORY, NEW ADVENTURE …

THE DAME IN THE DIAMONDS, SKYLER KINCAID, EDITOR

What? Her mentor is dead, and now she’s the editor for Taylor Press’s most difficult author?

With two years’ experience as an editorial assistant, Skyler Kincaid is the firm’s only chance of keeping this bestselling author. If he likes her, all is well; if he doesn’t, he’ll take his books elsewhere.

Len Spofford’s last two books, The Dame in the Rubies and The Dame in the Emeralds, were bestsellers. Now it’s up to Skyler to make sure the new one hits the mark. As she works on the manuscript for The Dame in the Diamonds, the book’s fictional story seems to echo her current reality.

Skyler is attracted to her boss, Harrison Taylor III, who is older, has an ex-wife, a teenage daughter—and a jealous psycho girlfriend. Harrison can’t believe this beautiful young woman would want to get involved in his drama.

Will there be a happily ever after to their story? Not even The Dame in the Diamonds can help her with that.

A QUILT TO DIE FOR

Gabe Downing, her significant other, and her daughter, Zoey, are planning a surprise for Miranda’s birthday. Now there’s been a murder and no one feels like celebrating.

Laura Jenkins was a bitter, nasty woman who never did anything nice for anyone. But the town is still in shock. Things like this just don’t happen in Cutler, Pennsylvania!

Local Police Chief Jake Perryman, overweight and out of shape, has no experience in investigating a murder. When he turns to Gabe and Miranda for help, they worry the stress may be too much for him.

Cutler is a small town and everyone knows everyone else. They all knew the victim and now Gabe and Miranda must look at their own friends and neighbors as suspects.

When a quilt is found in Laura’s belongings that predates the two oldest known quilts in the state, it becomes a motive. Now to find out who had means and opportunity?

Queenie McQuinn, owner of the local quilt shop, sadly tells Miranda, “There’s not a quilt on this earth worth dying for.”

But someone did!

Although we are control freaks by nature, we have learned to trust the experts for certain aspects of our writing projects. We are so fortunate to have wonderful people who not only help us publish the best products we can, but who also encourage and support us in this joint venture of ours. Special thanks to each of them and if you are looking for help with a project of your own, we highly recommend them.

Garner   (sharonkgarner.com)   Sharon is a published author who also works as a copy-editor for manuscripts, screenplays, etc. She catches details that we may have missed, corrects our spelling and grammar, and makes suggestions. She has worked on every one of our novels and knows our characters as well as we do. Since Sharon lives nearby, we meet occasionally for lunch. Go to her website to see a list and read excerpts of her amazing romance novels, each set in an exotic locale. I don’t travel much but do travel through my imagination in Sharon’s novels.

Graphic Artist:  Elizabeth Nichols   (enicholsdesign.com)   Elizabeth was recommended by a friend and we couldn’t be happier. When it was suggested that Magee needed a new, improved cover, we contacted Elizabeth. First, we completed the makeovers of all three original Witherspoon novels. And they are awesome! We just give her some of our ideas and she puts together a draft. She’s so great at making any changes we request and it truly is a collaboration. Go to Elizabeth’s website to see all of the services she can offer such as logo and website design.
